Overview

Great music doesn't have to stay inside your home. The Proficient AW830 outdoor speakers will ensure you are immersed in full, rich, balanced sound on your backyard deck or patio. The AW830 speakers don't need a huge amplifier to give you great coverage in open outdoor areas. That's because they feature a sensitivity rating that is more efficient than many other comparable products.

The AW830 is Proficient’s biggest and best outdoor speaker. Its 203mm (8") woofer and ported cabinet kick out deep, deep bass, while its 75mm (3") graphite midrange and 25mm (1") fabric dome tweeter deliver clear, crisp mids and highs. And the AW830's rugged ABS enclosure can easily tolerate years of even the world's worst weather.

Sound As Big As All Outdoors: If you want really serious and loud outdoor sound, you want one or two pairs of the Proficient AW830 outdoor speakers. The 203mm woofer and ported cabinet give you big 35 Hz bass extension that totally rocks any backyard! The 75mm graphite midrange makes voices sound incredibly natural, and the 25mm fabric tweeter pivots so you can direct the treble wherever you want it. With 175 Watts RMS power handling, a pair of AW830 play loud enough to cover an entire home tennis court with ease. You will need an amplifier or AV receiver with some grunt if you want to play them towards the maximum capability. We recommend at least 2 x 80 Watts (with the capability to connect 4 Ohm speakers) and that really is for lower listening levels. Remember, if you over-drive your amplifier then you run the risk of 'cooking' the speakers and warranty does not cover misuse.

The AW830's rugged cabinet can take anything your backyard can dish out: rain, snow, heat, cold, and even impacts from kids' toys. A rustproof, powder-coated aluminium grille protects the speaker drivers from damage. The included swivel bracket lets you mount the AW830 horizontally or vertically and point it in any direction.

Our Take

The Proficient AW830 outdoor speakers produce full, rich sound that works perfectly in large open spaces. They work well at delivering audio over a good area without any reduction in quality. Even if you are wanting to party on a regular basis, you won’t hear the Proficient AW830’s complaining (no promises about the neighbours, however). Audio Trends has had decades of experience with outdoor speakers and a number of the staff have them installed in their own backyards. So we are not only enthusiastic about music outdoors but can speak authoritatively on the subject and make recommendations that will suit your needs. Give us a call during business hours for a chat.
