Product Description

Style: 2 Speakers | Color: Black

Product Description

Yamaha's compact NS-AW150 bookshelf speakers provide an affordable way to enjoy your music or television programming on a deck or under a porch. You can bring them in during the cold months and set them up indoors, too: their high build quality and good sound lend them equally well to two-channel indoor listening. The speakers, which are sold as a pair, each use a 6.5-inch high-compliance, polypropylene, mica-filled woofer and 0.5-inch PEI dome tweeter. The drivers are optimized for high rigidity but low mass, giving them reasonably high sensitivity (80 dB with 2.83V at 1 meter), another way of saying modest amplifiers won't have much trouble driving them. Their acoustic-suspension cabinets are sealed to prevent undue resonance or tubby, tuneless bass, which often results from low-cost ported designs.

Yamaha's compact NS-AW150 bookshelf speakers provide an affordable way to enjoy your music or television programming on a deck or under a porch. You can bring them in during the cold months and set them up indoors, too: their high build quality and good sound lend them equally well to two-channel indoor listening.

The speakers, which are sold as a pair, each use a 6.5-inch high-compliance, polypropylene, mica-filled woofer and .5-inch PEI dome tweeter. The drivers are optimized for high rigidity but low mass, giving them reasonably high sensitivity (80 dB with 2.83V at 1 meter), another way of saying modest amplifiers won't have much trouble driving them. Their acoustic-suspension cabinets are sealed to prevent undue resonance or tubby, tuneless bass, which often results from low-cost ported designs.

With a nominal impedance of 6 ohms, the speakers will work nicely with amplifiers up to 35 watts per channel, nominal, or 120 watts, peak power. They boast a frequency response of 80 to 40,000 Hz (+/-3 dB), giving you decent bass output for their compact size and unusually extended high-frequency response for your most demanding digital media. For indoor use, you may want to augment their performance with a subwoofer to deliver deeper and more powerful bass; be sure to select one with a variable crossover so you can tailor its upper frequency to effectively "take over" at the point of the NS-AW150s' lowest deliverable frequency.

The speakers are magnetically shielded, so you can place them on or near a TV or video monitor without fear of picture degradation from their magnetic fields. Five-way binding posts simplify connection with several different terminations of speaker cable (including banana plugs), and the NS-AW150s even come with two lengths of cable to get you started.

While you wouldn't want to leave the speakers exposed on, say, the deck of a boat, they are water resistant and designed to withstand light wind and rain--a benefit of their sealed enclosures and rugged metal grilles. The speakers come with mounting bases and brackets.

What's in the Box
Two speakers, two lengths of speaker cable, speaker bases, mounting brackets, a warranty card, and a user's manual.

Customer Reviews

After doing a ton of research on outdoor speakers, I finally settled on these Yamahas, mainly because the price was so ridiculously low ($59.95 for the pair, including mounting hardware) that I felt I couldn't go wrong, especially since my next choice (Polk) would have cost me nearly twice as much.

I mounted these babies on the back wall of my house, about four feet apart, just under the eave, so that they pointed out at the deck. Although the mounting brackets are included, Yamaha does NOT include any screws to secure these brackets to the wall. I ended up using some 2-1/2 inch long wood screws...but your application may differ depending on how or with what your house is sided.

Yamaha also does NOT include speaker cable. I used some cheap 12-gauge stuff from Best Buy but 14 or 16-gauge lamp cord (also known as zip cord) from any hardware store will work just as well. Seeing as the speakers will be outside, I don't recommend the usual cheap, thin speaker cable that you normally see. Use the heavy stuff.

I hooked the Yamahas up to a Marantz 2240B receiver from the '70s and good God almighty, the sound is absolutely fantastic! Bass, you ask? The bass was so powerful, I had to turn the loudness control OFF! It seems that the location of the speakers up by the eave serves to reinforce the bass quite well, thank you.

Midrange comes through great. Both male and female vocals, as well as rock band stuff, is crystal clear. Nice highs as well. This system sounded so good that we ended up sitting outside until well after dark.

For something to sound as good as these speakers do, for as little money as I had to shell out, is absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.

I read the excellent reviews for these speakers and was skeptical. However, the price was right so there wasn't much risk. So . . . I bought a pair. The reviews were spot on. They sound is terrific, the price was unbeatable, and look is very acceptable (even to my Interior Designer wife). Unless you are an audio perfectionist, you'll never get a better price/performance value.

A few weeks after installing these on my back porch, my house got hit by a tornado. My back porch was literally in bits and pieces. It was a wood framed covered porch. Half the porch was in shambles behind my house and the other half was two houses down in my neighbors front yard. One of these speakers was under a pile of debris in my yard, and the other was with the other half of the porch two houses down laying in my neighbors front yard along with porch debris.

Instead of tossing the speakers in the trash I decided to toss them in the shed (which had moved but was still standing) just in case they still worked.

Fast forward three months and my house is pretty much repaired with a new porch. Tonight I decided to hook the speakers up to see if they somehow managed to survive a tornado. The brackets were still attached and only one of the side screw knobs was broken off, but could still tighten since only the actual screw was still in place. The grills were slightly dented and they both have lots of scuffs.

Anyway, I plugged them in, cranked up Spotify, and hit power on the receiver.... and booming crisp sound pumped out of both speakers sounding just as awesome as the day I bought them.

I'm normally pretty lazy when it comes to posting reviews, but I felt like this was worthy of a quick post. If durability is your concern, then these speakers should certainly get some consideration. I'm also impressed with the sound quality, though I admit I am no expert and have not owned other outdoor speakers to compare them to.

These are great speakers. My husband put them up over the weekend and wow what spectacular sound. It was packaged well and came with all the mounting necessities. We love listening to 50's jazz and the crispness of the cymbals and the brushes on the snare give you chills. Never again will we go back to large bulky speakers. These are on the wall and out of the way. The seller got them to us quickly and we want to thank you Amazon for being there yet again. Sincerely, The Escondio Macs

I've now purchased 3 sets of these speakers. I bought the first set a few months ago because I wanted inexpensive waterproof speakers to get some music to our outdoor pool area. These speakers had good reviews, and for the price I figured I couldn't go wrong. I was right. They have excellent sound, and look great mounted to the side of the deck. The speakers have both great bass and treble. The sound quality stays clean even when pushed hard, or at least loud enough that it would annoy the neighbors.

I was so impressed with these, I bought a second set for my sister and brother in law as a gift. They were looking for a good sounding outdoor speaker as well, and I knew they'd like these. The speakers have a 5 star review from them too.

So, last week I ordered a third pair to install in my boat. I knew the speakers sounded great, and since they are waterproof, it was an easy decision to get these yet again. I have an inboard tournament ski boat with the engine at the center of the boat. I thought the bass would get muffled by the sound of the engine, and I'd either need a second set of speakers or a sub to get the sound I was after. I'm happy to say that after installing them (hooked to a Jensen MSR-2007 from Amazon also) they sound so good, and have so much bass, even loud, that I won't need a sub or second set.

These are by far the best pair of outdoor speakers for under $60 you will ever buy, hands down. I'm sold on these for good!
