About Yamaha NS-AW150

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.

ns-aw150 by Yamaha All Weather Speaker

I added these speakers to my second story deck just under the eves at my walk out style ranch home. It's something I've wanted to do for years and finally did it. They sound great powered by my Onkyo receiver and have plenty of bass, midrange and highs. I am very pleased with my purchase and would and will recommend these speakers to anyone!

Good value - good product


from Bend, OR  -  Practical

Installed these on my back patio so that it is possible to go from inside to outside and hear the same music. They were a snap to install and look pretty good under the eaves of the house. I am delighted with their sound and am very happy with these speakers.

Great Sounding Speakers


from Hull, Ma  -  Music Lover

I use these speakers outside on my porch and deck. The porch is 8x31 and the deck is 16x31 and the sound is terrific no matter where I am sitting. The price was great and I can find no issues (and I am someone who is not easily satisfied.


Excellent speakers


from Here  -  Tech Savvy

These speakers replaced a 15 year old pair of "realistic" outdoor speakers. They did the job, but barely. The Yamahas ROCK! They're plenty loud enough for the deck and back yard, and have great highs and decent bass. I heard alot of people complain or mention the bass...I think it's fine for my needs. I would recommend to anyone

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MATTHEW P  I bought these partly based on brand name, the other part price. I felt this was the better deal or a solid name in audio equipment. The speakers are great and are more then enough for my backyard. Sound is clear and they stand up well. They have been through two Chicago winters and the midwest wind and still look new.
Pedro C  Can u plug this in to your cell phone and listen to music that way?
Frank M  Pedro: Yes you can plug your cell phone into these speakers but you will more than likely have better luck if you plug the cell phone or any of your MP3 type players (IPod, etc.) into a sound system using a mini plug. The reason is that I don't believe your cell phone will have enough output power to play through these speakers. By the way, these speakers sound great. They have decent bass response and the high and mid range sound is really good and don't forget the attractive price. We live on the water and these speakers are exposed to rain and salt air and so far they have really performed well and I have received complements on their sound quality from our many guests.
hamid f  dear sir /madam HI. i am wondering to know that , is this speaker has internal amplifier ? thanks
KENNETH C  No. They're just speakers.
