Expansive Outdoor Sound - 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.

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.


Double the Bass Output

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

Clean and Crisp Highs

The AW5500 Aluminum Dome Tweeters feature ultralight, rigid construction that enables them to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear, providing effortless, distortion-free performance within and beyond the audible range.

Accurate Midrange, Dynamic Bass

The AW5500's midrange/bass woofers feature the innovative Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS), the same driver technology found in our top indoor speakers. BDSS improves driver excursion, delivering output usually associated with a larger driver, while retaining a smaller drive's improved dispersion and midrange definition.

Mineral-filled Polymer Cone for full-yard extension

The AW5500 features a deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cone, engineered using sophisticated 3D modeling 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.

Built for Durability - Weatherproof Wonders

Mount anywhere, hear everywhere: The integrated galvanized 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.

All-Weather Series Loudspeakers - Fill the Outdoors With Beautiful Music

All-Weather Series speakers are designed to fill your outdoor areas with full range Definitive Technology sound. Utilizing the same punch-packing passive bass radiator and BDSS™ driver technologies found in our indoor speakers and subs, All-Weather Series speakers play loud and clear with impactful lows for musicality that extends throughout your yard.

All-Weather Series outdoor loudspeakers utilize unique Definitive Technology innovations to bring impactful indoor sound outside. Whether they’re playing quiet background music or bottom-heavy summer jams, All-Weather Series loudspeakers deliver clear, low, impactful audio that extends throughout your outdoor environment.
