post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am choosing outdoor speakers for my patio. I am deciding between Definitive Technology AW6500 and PSB CS1000.

Have somebody experiencies with these speakers and could compare it?

Thank you very much.

I’m shopping for 4 outdoor speakers for a 50x30 around my pool. I was considering the Klipsch KH0 7 but I saw a lot of positive reviews for the Definitive Technology AW 6500

Any opinions on these or others I should be looking at in this price point?

I haven't heard those models. I have the B&W WM6. It is big, but plays loud with great bass. Also, they have survived four colorado winters, completely exposed, and still work great. I compared them to a set of Paradigm outdoor speakers that looked similar to the PSB you mentioned and I liked the B&W much better.

I own the AW5500 for a small (15x20) patio. They have more than enough output for me since I have close neighbors. One of the main reasons I purchase them was that they were supposed to have good bass performance when mounted against a wall due to a passive radiator, and I've been happy with the bass so far. Unfortunately I haven't heard the other speakers on you list, so I can't comment.

You might want to consider the Yamaha NS-AW592 all-weather speakers. The shape and mounting design make for a really convenient package. I was surprised by their surprisingly decent and quite powerful presentation in our large yard. Great bass output, too. All this for a 99 buck outlay from Newegg. (Yamaha also makes a big and a little brother to this model.)

Unfortunately, I see they are out of stock at the moment...but it's worth keeping tabs on them. The $99 was almost half the price I found elsewhere.

Enjoy your Summer with tunes!
