As Clear as the Big, Blue Sky

The AW5500 combines high definition Aluminum Dome Tweeters that deliver clean, detailed treble, and a 5.5” BDSS™ woofer pressure-coupled with an 8” passive bass radiator that delivers clear, deep, impactful bass. You’ll enjoy expansive, full-precision sound, no matter where you are in the yard.

Custom-Engineered Drivers
for clear, detailed outdoor sound

The same painstaking engineering and thoughtful material choices of Definitive Technology indoor speakers infuse the All-Weather Series.
Passive Radiators Tweeters BDSS Woofers

Double the Bass Output

The AW5500’s 5 x 8″ bass radiator, pressure- coupled with the active BDSS mid/bass drivers, pumps out bass rivalling an 8″ woofer in less space. You can fill the outdoors with rich, full-frequency audio even at low volume.

“Usually, you sacrifice some sound quality for durability with outdoor speakers. That’s not the case with Definitive Technology’s speakers, though. Despite featuring all-weather protection these speakers produce the kind of high-fidelity, surround sound-quality audio that will impress even the pickiest of audiophiles.”

Integrated Waveguide
for a smooth response

The cone’s integrated waveguide smooths off-axis response for broad, even dispersion and better imaging throughout your space.

Mineral-filled Polymer Cone
for full-yard extension

The AW5500 features a deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cone, engineered using sophisticated 3D modelling techniques, for wide range performance.

Wired For Fun

With its higher frequency response, zero-latency video sync, and rock-solid performance, the AW5500 delivers reliability and sound quality far beyond wireless speakers.

Weatherproof Wonders

Mount anywhere, hear everywhere: The integrated galvanised steel mounting brackets and unique enclosure shape enable full 360° rotation. Place your speakers just about anywhere while directing the audio to reach exactly where you want it. Add as few or as many as desired; they scale to any outdoor space. And the AW5500 comes with a class-leading 5-year warranty.

Ready to Play
come rain or come shine

The All-Weather Series can withstand rain, snow, and temperature extremes that drive us mortals indoors. With Definitive Technology’s proprietary weather seal defending the subwoofers, tweeters, and passive radiators, it’s no wonder these loudspeakers boast a class-leading 5-Year Warranty.

Tough PolyStone™ Exterior
for durability and longevity

Definitive Technology’s exclusive, rugged PolyStone™ enclosure can take all that nature can muster. The black finish is highly fade-resistant, and the white finish is both fade-resistant and paintable. For accurate outdoor audio, PolyStone enclosures, coupled with mesh aluminum grilles, provide an acoustically neutral, anti-resonant home for the tweeter, subwoofer, and passive radiator. They’ll last for many years, and never stop sounding great.
