Outdoor speakers (Black)
Our take on the Klipsch CP6 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Great looks and great sound
If you want great sound by the patio or pool, but aren't crazy about the idea of hanging big speakers from the eaves, a smaller speaker, like the Klipsch CP6, may be just the ticket. The CP6 keeps a low profile, is designed to mount vertically or horizontally, and the V-shaped rear of the cabinet can fit right into a corner. The speaker can even be painted to match your trim.
A 5-1/4" long-throw woofer is paired with Klipsch's 3/4" Tractrix® horn in each speaker to produce great full-range sound without taking up too much space. Thanks to a weather-resistant design, the CP6 is well-suited to bringing your tunes outdoors when the weather turns sunny.

Multi-Purpose Speaker: The Klipsch CP-6 loudspeakers are designed to both withstand the rigors of outdoor use, while also complimenting any indoor décor as either a stereo pair or surround speakers in a home theater system. Built to either withstand the rigors of outdoor use or to provide a highly aesthetic look that blends perfectly into any indoor décor, the Klipsch Compact Performance Series CP-6 speakers provide a unique, multifunctional sound solution for any home.
Two-Way Speaker Design: The Klipsch CP-6 employs exclusive Tractrix Horn technology with a premium, long-throw woofer for an amazing full-range sound.
- Horn-Loaded Dome Tweeter: Each CP-6 speaker features a 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter coupled to a Tractrix Horn for smoother high-end response with greater extension, enhanced imaging, and more powerful dynamics. The exclusive Klipsch 90°x 90° Tractrix Horn not only provides controlled coverage, reducing reflected sound which harms overall sound quality, but also gives you more sound output from the same amount of power input compared to other designs.
- IMG Woofer: Each CP-6 loudspeaker features a 5.25" IMG (injected-molded graphite) woofer for detailed midrange and punch midbass response. The woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.
Dual Ports: Two front-firing ports are used for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.
Weather Resistant Cabinet: The Klipsch CP-6 loudspeakers feature an anti-resonant, weather resistant, mineral-filled cabinet. The speaker also include weather resistant, powder-coated aluminum grilles (logos rotate). Both the cabinets and grilles are paintable.
Speaker Terminals: The two speaker screw-terminals are accessible from the speaker's front baffle; a rubber terminal protects the screw-terminals. Push the speaker wire through the middle channel on the speaker's back cabinet until its pushed through to the speaker's front baffle, and then attach the speaker wire to the screw-terminals using a philips-head screwdriver.
Mounting Options: The included wall-brackets let you mount the CP-6 speaker horizontal or vertical against a wall. The speaker's V-shaped profile even allows you to tuck the speaker into a corner using the included wall-brackets. The solid wall-mount bracket system assures a fast, easy, one-screwdriver installation. There are two keyhole slots on back of the wall-bracket (mounting screws not included). Once installed, you can adjust the angle of the speaker without any tools. The CP Series speakers also have two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts for attaching 3rd party wall-brackets (sold separately). In addition, the CP-6 multipurpose speaker can be simply placed on a shelf or stand.
Note: The CP-6 loudspeaker measures 7" (w) x 11" (h) x 6.875" (d) with the wall-bracket attached.

3 questions already asked
These speakers are not amplified. [ Ian Sep 13, 2016 ]
These are not amplified speakers, they do require an external amplifier. They are very efficient and do not require a large amp to sound fantastic. [ CHRISTOPHER Sep 12, 2016 ]
No [ Michael Sep 12, 2016 ]
No - they are not amplified. I installed them in-line with a Russound ALTX-2D In Wall Volume Control that works well. [ Robert Sep 12, 2016 ]
On amplified, no volume control. Regular speakers. [ prodogg Sep 12, 2016 ]

1 answer Has there been a design change? I ask because my white pair has a raised area (like a little wall) next to the screw terminals that is not the same as the pictures online. It forces you to go around it either on the top or bottom to be able route and secure your speaker wire. Then when you tighten the screw terminal it gouges the raised plastic area. I should probably submit pictures to Crutchfield for verification. It just doesn't seem right and mine do not look like the ones pictured online. Also I was disappointed that some of the screw terminals were stuck in place and very difficult to deal with. It was like they were stripped out as they just spun and I had a hard time getting them to separate in order to secure the speaker wire. I can only chalk that up to poor workmanship. These sound good, but were a bit of a pain to install. [ PaulF May 07, 2016 ]
I was not able to find any mention of a design change for this speaker on our site or Yamaha's site. I hate to hear that the terminals are giving you trouble. If you purchased them from us, I recommend giving our technical support a call to see if anything can be done to remedy that terminal issue. We include their number on the invoice that comes with the order. If you don't have that handy, you can call us on 1-800-324-9695 to look up that order and then connect you with our technical support. Either way, I am glad you are enjoying their sound.

Yes, that's correct. It only pivots on one axis. [ Robert Apr 28, 2016 ]
You are correct.. they only pivot one way.... and that is long ways.. no matter how you mount them.... [ AJ Apr 27, 2016 ]
