Ventura 5T 70V Outdoor Speaker
On the patio, by the pool, or on your yacht, the KEF Ventura 5T all-weather outdoor speaker pair lets you enjoy your music with no compromises. KEF Ventura Series is over-tested to out-perform the competition in even the most extreme weather environments: extreme heat & cold, beach environments, humidity, and with the Venture 5T’s integrated transformer, multi-speaker setups are made easier than ever. The Ventura series will continue bringing you beautiful sound for years to come.
Weatherproof, IP65 certified and salt spray tested, marine quality Ventura Series outdoor models can flood your pool, garden or yacht with high quality sound, even in the most extreme atmospheric conditions.
The new Ventura 5T, integrates 70V/100V multi-tap transformers, allowing multiple speakers to be powered simultaneously through one extremely long wire in a distributed line system. This saves on the cost of wiring and labour, making the Ventura 5T ideally suited to any outdoor installation.
Available in black or white finishes, Ventura 5T blends unobtrusively with the décor – and with the slotted mounting bracket, the units are exceptionally easy to install.
The KEF Ventura 5T is a high-performance all-weather speaker designed for outdoor applications including direct exposure to sun, rain, and salt spray. The 5T model features multi-tap transformers selectable for 6 ohm, 70 or 100 volt applications. The speaker features a 130mm low frequency woofer and a 25mm fluid cooled aluminium high frequency tweeter mounted in a sealed IP65 certified enclosure ensuring high quality music experiences in even the most extreme atmospheric conditions. Its performance and design characteristics make the KEF Ventura 5T the ideal choice for installations around swimming pools, patios, outdoor gardens, theme parks, car parks, and on yachts.
Weatherproof Construction – Manufactured using a proprietary plating and powder coating process, the KEF Ventura 5T had to endure 1,200 hours of direct salt spray testing and is UV protected to withstand the harshest environments with an operating temperature from -40° to +70°C.
Versatile Mounting System – An included ratcheting aluminium mounting bracket allows the speaker to be rotated 180° and the symmetrically square KEF logo can be rotated in 90° increments increasing installation options while retaining the correct finished appearance. The speaker also includes ¼-20 brass inserts for use with many aftermarket mounting systems.
Stainless Steel / Brass Hardware – The included hardware is made from materials designed to withstand the same extreme operating conditions as the speaker, ensuring the complete assembly is kept free of corrosion and discoloration.
Fluid Cooled Aluminium Tweeter – The high-power anodised aluminium tweeter is cooled by a ferro-fluid liquid greatly improving it’s thermal handling capacity and reliability.
IP65 Certification – The speaker assembly is completely sealed from dust and water ensuring that even direct salt spray will not harm any components.
Multi-tap Selectable Transformers – The 70/100 volt transformers allow the integrator to individually adjust each speaker’s output to 70V (3.75W, 7.5W, 15W, 30W) or 100V (7.5W, 15W, 30W, 60W) providing the versatility to meet various operating requirements.
