The AOS 279, the largest of the range, delivers 150 Watts of power, a 6.5-inch polypropylene rubber surround woofer and a frequency response of 50-20,000Hz. Each speaker (sold as a pair) measures 192 x 279 x 192mm and weighs 2.7kg.
And while this is the largest in the range, all models, irrespective of size, have a 180-degree adjustable swivel bracket and are perfect for outdoor entertainment areas such as pool surrounds, pergolas, boats and courtyards in both residential and commercial settings. Each has a rust-resistant aluminium grill, corrosion-resistant mounting brackets and screws, is unobtrusive in design and white in colour.
The medium-sized AOS237 has a 5.25-inch polypropylene woofer, 120 Watts of power and measures 163 x 237 x 160mm, with each speaker weighing 1.9kg.
The AOS203, the smallest in the range, has a 4-inch polypropylene woofer, 100 Watts of power and measures 135 x 203 x 136mm, with each speaker weighing 1.4kg.
Avico recommends the largest size, the AOS279 for most installations with the smaller sizes being ideal for those wanting to install outdoor speakers on balconies of apartments and other confined areas where consideration needs to be shown for neighbours in close proximity.
