We designed the IW6.5 for the audio enthusiast that wants to fill their spaces with great sound, not speaker enclosures, without the sacrifice of high-end engineering and sound quality. The IW6.5 has many features found only on speakers twice the price. These features include a Dual Voice Coil 6.5” woofer with a mineral filled, curve sided, poly cone, and a pair of 20mm silk dome tweeters. We also incorporated a high performance crossover with air core coils and metalized polypropylene capacitors. The woofer’s motor design includes a copper shorting ring which lowers distortions while enhancing clear and natural vocals.

The IW6.5 can be used in stereo or mono configuration, making it perfect for multi-speaker rooms or single speaker distributed audio. It includes one square and one round grill, allowing the IW6.5 to be used as an in-wall or in-ceiling speaker. The grilles are matte white and easily paintable for seamless room integration, and attach via neodymium magnets for easy and secure on/off. These unique features allow the IW6.5 to cover a myriad of home and commercial install applications, possibly making it the most versatile custom audio speaker on the market.

    Rating Digital Designs IW6.5 In Wall Speaker Product Review
    The first thing I noticed when I unboxed the IW6.5′s was the twin Silk Dome Tweeters, seeing that made me even more impatient since most speakers with Silk Dome Tweeters generally have beautiful clarity and a real refined sound to them. After glaring at the front for what would seem like an eternity I decided to check out the components before we got George & Ashley to mount them in the front wall of ABTEC’s Audio Lounge. Now I had a good taste of the sound that the Digital Designs IW6.5′s produced it was time to do a little comparison to two other hi-end Branded (Which I will not name) In-Wall/Ceiling Speakers, the song’s I used for this was Pink Floyd’s Time & Guns and Roses’ Dead Horse. First I listened to Time through the Digital Designs IW6.5′s and after that listened to it on what I would now call Speakers A & then Speakers B, straight away I could tell the differences in the Tweeters as the Aluminium Tweeters in Speakers A & B soon became harsh at the beginning of the song during the Grandfather Clock Bells and also during the Guitar Solo on the higher notes while the twin Silk Tweeters on the IW6.5′s held the notes smooth and true! While listening to Dead Horse the Vocals & Acoustic Guitar on the IW6.5′s sounded natural and so so clean, I can’t emphasize on how clean they are to the point when I listened to the same song on Speakers A & B I was instantly disappointed. The woofers picked up the Drums and Bass Guitar sounds precisely and dominantly that it filled ABTEC’s Audio Lounge without any of the music breaking up. Overall the Digital Designs IW6.5′s have very beautifully natural and clean sound about them, even though I didn’t have a subwoofer running at the time I was listening to them I didn’t feel I was missing anything in the music.
