AW439 All-Weather™ Pro 2X Transducer

Turn any outdoor environment into a speaker with the AW439 All-Weather™ Pro 2X. The AW439 provides ultimate performance and output of full-fidelity, full-frequency sound with a frequency response from 5hz to 17kHz. This transducer was designed for use in wet and humid environments, and covers an area up to 4 times the size of the AW339 All-Weather™ Pro.

Key Features:

  • Hidden subwoofer
  • Continuous power handling: 135 watts
  • Frequency Response: 5Hz to 17kHz
  • Designed for installation in wet or humid environments
The AW439 All-Weather™ Transducer is the weather-resistant version of the TST329 Gold. Specifically designed to withstand rain and humidity, the AW439 can handle many adverse conditions that would damage ordinary speakers or transducers. The AW429 can turn a deck, hot tub, or boat hull into a full- frequency speaker, and produce full-fidelity sound in a variety of climates and environments.
Originally developed for military and commercial training simulators, Full Contact Audio® transducers were specifically designed to transfer sounds like gunshots and explosions into a tactile experience that can be felt as well as heard.
The AW439 All-Weather™ Transducer requires an amplifier for operation. Clark Synthesis recommends using an amplifier stable at 4 ohms that can deliver 125-150 watts @ 4 ohms (per transducer).
Specs:
  • Continuous power handling: 135 watts
  • Impedance: 4 ohms
  • Overload Protection: Polyswitch
  • Frequency Response: 10Hz to 17kHz
  • Electrical Connection: 3ft. – 16 guage, 2 wire
  • Dimensions: 8 in. diam. x 2.25 in. high
  • Recommended Amplification: 125 – 150 watts at 4 ohms

Relaxation and Pain Reduction with Tactile Sound

You might be surprised to learn that many people use Tactile Sound Transducers to relax and feel better. I’ll admit – most of the time we talk about the realism and excitement that Tactile Sound Transducers add to theme park rides, training simulators, gaming rigs, and home theaters. While lots of people want another adrenaline rush, there are a significant number of people [...]

Comparing TSTs – There Is More to The Story

Today we are releasing a new video comparing the different TSTs (Tactile Sound Transducers). Watching this video will give you some idea of how the different models compare to one another. As always, there is more to the story. We offer four levels of TSTs. These range from the TST209 entry level Transducer up to the TST429 Platinum Transducer. Let me put in a [...]

How are the AW339s mounted to a wood deck?2021-04-01T13:53:05-06:00

The AW339 comes with all the mounting hardware that you will need. For more information, click HERE.

How many AW339s are used on a wood deck?2020-08-11T16:07:00-06:00

Since most wood decks are made with soft woods, we recommend one AW339 for every 4 foot X 4 foot (1.2 meter x 1.2 meter) area.

How many TSTs do I need to turn my spa/hot tub into a speaker?2020-08-11T15:55:17-06:00

We recommend using one TST for smaller hot tubs and two for larger hot tubs.

Are TSTs used in wellness products?2020-08-11T15:50:51-06:00

Yes! Clark Synthesis TSTs are used in therapy chairs, therapy beds, massage tables, etc. If you do a Google search for Vibroacoustic, you will find many products that contain Clark Synthesis TSTs.

What are Tactile Sound Transducers (TSTs)?2020-08-11T15:50:28-06:00

Clark Synthesis Tactile Sound Transducers (TSTs) transform pure audio as electrical energy into pure audio as vibrational energy. TSTs are much more than shakers. Shakers only make things shake. TSTs faithfully reproduce audio signals bringing new levels of realism and enjoyment to VR spaces, Home Theaters, Simulators, Movie Theaters, etc.

Can I mix different TSTs?2020-08-11T15:49:57-06:00

Yes. Be sure to wire the TSTs in-phase so they all work together.

Does the TST require ventilation?2020-08-11T15:49:30-06:00

Ventilation is not always required. However, warmer climates and environments may require ventilation. Contact Clark Synthesis for specific recommendations.

What clearance do you recommend for mounting the TST?2020-08-11T15:49:02-06:00

We recommend 3 inches of clearance.

The amplifier is located far away from the TST. What size wire should I use?2020-08-11T15:48:29-06:00

We recommend 16 gauge wire for up to 50 feet of length; 14 gauge wire for 50 feet to 150 feet; 12 gauge for distanced greater than 150 feet.

What does it mean to wire TSTs in-phase?2020-08-11T14:45:10-06:00

This means both TSTs are wired the same way to the amplifier.

Why mount AW339 to a wood deck?2020-08-11T14:37:41-06:00

Having a subwoofer on your deck is wonderful for outdoor sound, but might be irritating to your neighbors. AW339s produces subwoofer signals above and below a wood deck. Your neighbors will never know.

How would I mount the AW339 to my spa/hot tub?2020-08-11T14:31:53-06:00

The AW339 is a great addition to your spa/hot tub. We recommend one transducer for a small hot tub and two transducers for a large hot tub.

Here’s how to do it:

Step 1. Get to the underside of your hot tub.

Step 2. Decide where to put your transducers.

Step 3. Clear out any insulation so that you can reach the fiberglass wall.

Step 4. You may have to sand the fiberglass wall to make it flat and smooth. (CAUTION: if you sand down the fiberglass, wear proper breathing protection, eye protection and skin protection).

Step 5. Use a two-part slow-cure epoxy to attach the Unimount Brackets to the fiberglass wall. The Unimount Brackets are included with the AW339s.

Step 6. Wait for the epoxy to fully cure.

Step 7. Attach each AW339 to each Unimount Bracket.

Step 8. Wire the AW339s to your sound system and enjoy!

What is Tactile Sound?2020-08-11T14:27:50-06:00

Tactile Sound is pure audio that is felt through touch and is heard through bone conduction.

What amplifier should I use with the TST?2020-08-11T14:27:33-06:00

We recommend a 125 watt amplifier at 4 ohms for the TST239 and a 150 watt amplifier at 4 ohms for the three-series and four-series TSTs.

Which TSTs can I use in a dirty environment?2020-08-11T14:27:01-06:00

We recommend the TST329 Gold TST for dirty environments. We recommend the AW339 for dirty environments that may be extremely damp.
