Ted Addison • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have a pair of 17 year old Energy Take 5 Classic outdoor speakers that need replacing. I am looking at going with the AP650 speakers. I am currently running my outdoor speakers on Zone B with my Pioneer VSX-918V receiver. Would that application work well with these speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Ted:I found a listing online for info/specs on the Energy Take Classic 1I/O 5 patio speakers; unfortunately, they only go back six years. But the AP650 has a sensitivity of 91dB and goes down to 37 Hz both more impressive than the Energy 5.25" speaker. If you had the Energy connected to the Speaker B of the Pioneer, the OSD 650 should work fine as well. The Pioneer Receiver rated at 120 Watts well within the 150-watt rating of the 650. The AP650, both Black and White, are back-ordered expected back in stock at the end of September.TL/5655
Shaun • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Will these handle true extreme weather? We get heavy snowfall (200+ inches a year) and extreme cold (-30 to -40) would these hold up to that if permanently affixed to a light pole?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Shaun:I would suggest these speakers would be our best choice for your application. But would suggest mounting them at a height that you could remove then during the long stretches of winter weather or look for a weatherproof enclosure that would be open when you want to listen to music, but that would entail mounting low enough to be accessible. The speaker features Aluminum Grills, Sealed design, and a plastic cover plate that I would recommend sealing with weatherproof Duct Tape.Good luckTL/5663
John Kol • 12/23/2020, 3:33:09 AM What is the maximum gauge speaker wire these binding posts will accept?
Customer Service • 12/23/2020, 1:03:26 PMThank you for contacting us, the AP650 can accept up to a 14 gauge speaker wire max. Do keep in mind that the distance from the speaker to your amplifier will need to be considered when selecting your speaker wire gauge.
John Kol • 12/25/2020, 7:19:11 PM Do the binding posts on the AP650 accept banana plugs or spades?
Customer Service • 02/05/2021, 7:00:40 PMHi John: The push terminals found on the AP850, AP650 and AP525 are for bare wire connection. I do not thing it will accept a banana plug or spade terminal. It may accept a speaker pin as well as bare wire but that is it. TL/2-5-2021
Brian • 04/23/2021, 3:11:59 PM I am looking to finally finish my outdoor area with the sound system. My current setup is nothing but the TV and a soundbar. The use is pretty evenly spilt between TV viewing and music which is most often connected by Bluetooth through my phone. I have all the wiring run for front and rear left and right, center channel and sub. I am looking at the AP 650s for my F/R both L/R. If I’m using them as TV audio would I still want a center channel just for the effect of conversation from what I’m watching? If so can you point me towards a good venter channel option? What amplifier would you recommend? My sub will be outdoors but under roof with little chance of wetness just the conditions of a covered outdoor space. I’m looking for a recommendation there also please. Just point me towards the items to make this work and sound great for both uses please.
Customer Service • 04/29/2021, 12:22:44 PMHi Brian: If you plan to have a Surround Sound setup, it will depend on the Audio Video Receiver you choose, where it will be located, and how accessible it will be. It sounds like you will only need a 5.1 Receiver that has streaming capabilities. You typically want the Center channel to match with the front left and right speakers. So a single AP650 or a pair wired in parallel (mounted horizontally). But the AVR has to be able to handle a 4-ohm load. I would connect the TV audio output to the AVR digitally using fiber optic. Most AVR has different ode settings depending on whether you are watching a movie or listening to music. Usually, you will have a choice of 2 channel stereo or multichannel stereo through all 5 speakers. timl/4-29; [email protected]
