Richard Britain • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Do ap 650 without 70v option really weight 17 lbs. as u describe? If so why so much? The yamaha 6.5" i'm considering only weight 8 lbs. thx richard b
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Richard: The AP650 has a more heavy duty cabinet and larger internal drivers with larger magnets. 17 pounds is the weight of both speakers including the packaging. So it is a Gross weight measurement. TL/4688
Tom • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Would it be possible to slave a pair of AP650 speakers off of the BTP650 master, by connecting them with speaker wire? In principle it seems that it should work, but I am concerned about the BTPs ability to drive them. If possible, I assume that the max length of the speaker wire would be 25 correct? Thanks
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Tom: The AP650 kit is limited to what comes in the box. It would not work to add a second or third speaker to the slave speaker. It would definitely throw off the internal receiver found in the master speaker. It is rated at 8 ohm powering a single pair of speakers with the internal drivers (woofer/Tweeter) being one and the speakers in the satellite being number 2. Adding a second speaker or pair would throw off the impedance and would create a demand for current while create to much heat for the internal amp. There is new technology available in some of the new smartphones that allows you to sync up with two Receivers so with this capability you could add another BTP650. You are not limited in the length of speaker wire other than you lose the true right and left stereo separation. We recommend between 8 to 12 feet. Additional wire maybe needed if you need extra wire to make sure it you get from Master to slave and are routing the wire around other objects there be no problem running longer than 12 plus feet. I was also going to say we are developing a Bluetooth outdoor Subwoofer (like the OSD OM SUB200) where we will have a Bluetooth Receiver built and a 4.1 Power Amplifier. You will have a powered outdoor sub with four conductors so you can connect two pair of outdoor speaker for better coverage. You can connect two pair of AP650 Patio Speakers (like the BTR-650 speakers) or two pair of Rock speakers or two pair of Omni or Garden Speakers, or mix and match maybe a pair of AP650 and a pair of RX640 rock speakers. W should have this in stock within the next 60 days or by the beginning of the second quarter 2018. TL/ 4782
Joey S. • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Ive seen in the speaker comparisons on the OSD website that the 650 has a bass port, however there are no pictures of the back anywhere on your website or online. Are these fully sealed units? Is there a bass port on the back? A picture would be helpful if you can provide. Thanks.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHI Joey: The original AP650 did have a front-firing port. The newer design that we have been shipping for the last three years is a fully sealed design. It has a certified rating of IP6X which means it 100% sealed from dust as well as fully waterproof. Add to that it features a unique mounting bracket that swivels and tilts. Add to that it has a sensitivity of 91dB which means they are very efficient. Comes in Balck or White and we also offer a Bluetooth version as well with same cabinet and drivers (BTP650). TL/5043 Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy between new and old confusion
Corey • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM What amplifier do you recommend for running four of these speakers at the same time?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Corey: On the entry level side, you could start with our Class D XMP100 Power Amplifier with Speaker A and Speaker B output that will drive both speakers at the same time (4-ohm). This is a class D amplifier that is 93% efficient versus the typical Class AB amp in this price range that is closer to 50%. Being more efficient allows the amp to run cooler. The second more effective choice would either be our AMP200 or AMP300 both High Current Power Amplifiers Audiophile pure Power Amplifiers. Unlike the XMP100 which is pushing its limit driving two pairs of 8-ohm speakers in parallel, these amplifiers have a lot more in the tank. These amps are 2-ohm stable and could easily add a third pair of AP650 in parallel all three powered at the same time (2.6-ohm load). You want even more output than look at adding our new Pre One Preamp with 1.5V output to either the XMP100 or Amp200/300. Good Luck TL/5070
Jonathan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM With the pictures for this item, there is both the white woofer cone, and the black woofer cone. What color woofer cone do these come with?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHI Jonathan: The AP650 6.5Inch Patio speaker has a silver/white cone. The AP525 5.25"2-way patio speaker has the black cone. Thank you for pointing that out, we will make sure to have the correct speaker images for the respective speakers. TL/5101
