[Amazon Canada] Definitive Technology AW 6500 Outdoor Speaker - $179

Been eyeing this for the backyard all summer. Usually over $300 even when on sale.

Both at 179 now, hot deal for white since they are normally a fair bit pricer, apparently the weather resistant white paint application is labour intensive because of the special expensive paint they need to use.

Thanks for sharing. I'm actually in the market for outdoor speakers. I was wondering if I should get these or if there's an better options for a similar price?

No better option, these are amazing! They perform better than many indoor speakers

Do I need at least an amplifier (preferable a portable one) to use these?

I posted an earlier thread on this, received them yesterday. They do sound great out of the box, can't wait for them to be broken in (40 hours apparently).

I had Polk atrium 4s before these, and there is no comparison. Have them hooked up to an older Sony receiver with a Chromecast audio.

Good deal at this price. Paid 499+tax for a pair in 2016 from gibbys. Had to replace a blown one under warranty. Haven't had any problems with the replacement or the remaining speaker from the original pair.

I have no homes behind me, but from speaking to the neighbours beside me, they don't really hear the music from these speakers too much. I'm a corner unit though .
