Overview

Our take on the Klipsch CA-525T

Get classic Klispch sound for your deck or porch at home, or for your restaurant's outdoor seating area or patio bar. The CA-525T features multi-tap transformers for use with 70-volt or 100-volt distributed audio systems. Or you can set it to "bypass" mode and simply use these rugged, weather-resistant speakers with your standard home audio receiver or amplifier. Either way, you'll enjoy detailed sound and years of reliable operation.

The Klipsch CA-525T puts a 5-1/4" woofer and 1" dome horn loaded tweeter to good use.

Klipsch speaker technology inside

The CA-525T sports Klipsch's Tractrix® horn speaker technology for clear highs that project. The 1" titanium dome tweeter is loaded in a square-mouthed horn that allows you to place the speakers either vertically or horizontally using the integrated mounting brackets. A 5-1/4" IMG (injection-molded graphite) woofer with a rubber surround provides the mids and bass, for full-range sound in outdoor spaces. See what our satisfied customers have to say.

Features

Commercial Outdoor Speaker: The compact full-range Klipsch CA-525T loudspeaker delivers big time sound and worry free performances. Designed for distributed audio applications, this amazing little speaker is equally at home in outdoor or indoor background music and paging applications in both commercial and recreational environments. This commercial all-weather speaker perfect for patios, decks, swimming pools, porches, or any other place where exposure to the elements makes conventional loudspeaker usage unsuitable.

Two-Way Driver Design: The Klipsch CA-525T all-weather loudspeaker is a two-way design using a high performance bass driver for the low frequencies. It features a 5.25" IMG cone woofer and 1" titanium dome tweeter coupled to a square-mouth 90° x 90° Tractrix Horn for clean and efficient reproduction of the high and midrange frequencies.

All-Weather Enclosure: Available in black or white this speaker has a durable UV-resistant all-weather enclosure. The CA-525T's updated grille design stays securely fastened and incorporates a new paint formulation for increased weather resistance and years of maintenance-free protection regardless of the climate or environment.

70V/100V + 8-Ohm: The Klipsch CA-525T includes an internal multi-tap transformer with expanded range and a switchable direct 8-ohm bypass. The tap settings for the CA-525T at 70V are 30W, 15W, 7.5W, 3.7W, and 1.8W. The added 1.8W tap setting offers further placement flexibility. The settings for 100V are 30W, 15W, 7.5W, and 3.7W. The switch is on the back of the speaker and can be set using a small flat-head screwdriver.

4 Connectors: Connections are provided via four-position barrier strips. This allows an installer to use two connectors for inputs and two for pass-throughs making it easier to daisy chain. The speaker's improved input cup allows for easier drainage.

Mounting Options: The Klipsch CA-525T all-weather speaker can be mounted horizontally or vertically without affecting the coverage pattern.  Included with the speaker is a "C" style mounting bracket constructed of weather-resistant, powder-coated zinc. This bracket attaches to the speaker with the supplied low profile knobs that thread onto the top and bottom studs protruding from the cabinet. This
allows the speaker to be angled to the left or right when mounted vertically, or up and down when mounted horizontally. The additional 3/8"-16 threaded insert allows for use with optional mount brackets to offer even better placement flexibility
