Speaker systems come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some are built for outdoors to resemble rocks to meld into
the surrounding landscape, others a built for indoors such as those found on your stereo system, while others are
of the in between variety, not quite for the living room but not true outdoor, to heck with the elements type speakers.
OWI, Inc. has introduced a self-amplified surface mount speaker system that is built for those in-between places such as in garages or enclosed sun rooms, and other hidden away places where sound is needed. The AMP602-2 speaker system outputs very good quality sound at an inexpensive price point of $199.
The professional commercial speakers are ideal for outdoor applications such as restaurant patios, decks, garages--anywhere you'd want to listen to music or audio out of doors but don't want to subject indoor specific speakers to the elements.
The AMP602-2 speaker system features two speakers (6.5-inch amplified and non amplified), each with 6.5-inch mica woofers and 20mm PEI tweeters. The dimensions are 9.5" x 8.46" x 11.3". The rear of the amplified speaker features a volume control, High (-15 to +15dB), and Low (-15 to +15dB) control knobs, left and right inputs, and 25 watts max outputs.)
Other features include 30 watts maximum power, 15 watts nominal power, frequency response 80Hz-20kHz, 3.5kHz crossover, s/n >80dB, 92 degree dispersion, low frequency driver 80Hz-6kHz, high frequency driver 1.5kHz-20kHz, and maximum current, one wire to ground and short circuit protected. The speakers weigh 12lbs and include mounting hardware for outdoor element protected areas. They are paintable and ship with a one year warranty.
