These white BIC America ADATTO DV52SIW 125-Watt 2-Way 5.25 In. Indoor/Outdoor Speakers with Keyholes for Versatile Mounting feature the same tweeters and woofers as BIC America’s top-rated DV52si bookshelf speakers. These 5.25 in. woofers deliver surprisingly low bass output for their size. They include both cloth indoor and anodized screen outdoor grilles. The keyholes on the back of Adatto cabinets enable easy wall or corner mounting without having to purchase extra mounting brackets. They are ideal for home theater use and all music formats.
Proving that outdoor speakers can sound just as good as indoor models, the Adatto DV52si indoor/outdoor speakers boast the same components as BIC America’s top-rated DV52si bookshelf speakers. This means the versatile satellites have enough bass output to fall below the built-in subwoofer crossover point for Dolby Digital receivers, ensuring that users won’t miss a note whether listening to their favorite tunes on the patio or enjoying surround sound movie soundtracks in the living room. The resulting audio is warm, precise, and full-bodied, with an accuracy and tone that dwarfs speakers many times their size.
The speakers mount easily on either a wall or ceiling corner, giving listeners a host of installation options. Locate them near an outdoor hot tub, under a roof eve in the garden, or above the back deck, where the weather-resistant housing will hold up to both sun and wind exposure. The speakers aren’t completely waterproof, however, so BIC America recommends installing them under a covering. To further protect the speakers, the company included an anodized screen grille, which keeps water splashes and drizzle from damaging the components. When locating them indoors, merely pop off the anodized grille and add the cloth indoor grille instead.
Audio-wise, each speaker boasts a 5.25-inch polypropylene cone woofer and 0.5-inch poly dome tweeter, which combine to deliver a frequency response of 70 Hz to 20 kHz. Additional specs include an 8-ohm impedance, a sensitivity of 90 dB, and a crossover frequency of 5 kHz. The speakers perform particularly well when combined with other BIC America home theater speakers, which are tonally matched to complement the Adattos and are video shielded to prevent image interference. Each speaker handles 10 to 125 watts and measures 6.25 by 9 by 6 inches (W x H x D). The pair is also backed by a seven-year warranty when used indoors and a two-year outdoor warranty.
