Dayton Audio IO655B 6-1/2" 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speaker Pair Black
Dayton Audio IO655B 6-1/2" 2-Way Indoor/Outdoor Speaker Pair Black is rated 4.7778 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad at all. For cheap, they're excellent.I wouldn't use them for mastering monitors, but at the price, they're flippin' fantastic.These sound, overall, very well balanced. We mounted them on a rafter pointing down in a living area, and opted for just a little treble attenuation. For relatively on-axis, direct listening, the treble is a little sparkly, though I can see this being preferred by many, as it accentuates upper frequecy detail.If you were using them in an application where you couldn't get the speakers pointed right at you, the overall power response might be just perfect as is for background music fill, particularly with the tweeters aimed over the heads of the listeners.Not complaining. Top to bottom, casual listening suggests they're pretty smooth, top to bottom. Nice even presentation. Usable bass extension, intelligible but not overly pronounced midrange, treble isn't harsh. Detail level isn't mind-blowing, but overall, in my opinion, a very well-done product.We're going to be buying more of these for the rest of the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product!Got four of these for my courtyard, installed two of them today, now I'm listening to some great music and drinking an ice cold beer. Can't beat that combo. i think I 'll put the other two up at my office. Very nicely balanced sound, I listen to a lot of acoustic guitar music; guitars and vocals are very realistic and uncolored; I can listen for hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for the price.Great background sound for the deck. I wouldnt over power them. Great deal if you get them on sale for a 6 1/2" speaker. Purchase these before.

I live in northern Ohio were the winters are brutal sometimes, blowing snow, rains, ice. Do these hold up under the conditions mentioned above. I asked this because I've had others that only last about 2 years, they cost more and were indoor - outdoor sp

Asked by: Born56
All outdoor speakers will have a certain lifespan in harsh elements regardless of price. These have worked very well for several years here in year-round outdoor applications in southern Ohio which also has very harsh winters. These speakers have a 5 year warranty, so if anything should fail (that is not abused) within this period they can be replaced.

Can you tell me make and model of speakers used. Also, type of crossover and crossover frequency?

I currently own IO52OB 5 1/4". Looking for more base. I like keeping tone controls out.
Asked by: Tesla
Unfortunately the drivers used are proprietary to the design and there are no model numbers avaiable. The crossover point is also ot something we have access to, however this does not affect bass response.
