This transducer was designed to withstand the challenging environmental conditions found around hot tubs, spas, whirlpools, boat hulls, and outdoor decks. Knowing that transducers could activate the materials used to construct these structures (usually fiberglass and wood), the developers created the AW339 All-Weather transducer. Today, this transducer offers its users the flexibility of a hidden mount paired with the gift of surprisingly-clear, full-frequency sound.
The AW339 All-Weather Transducer is the weather-resistant version of the TST329 Gold. Specifically designed to withstand rain and humidity, the AW339 can handle many adverse conditions that would damage ordinary speakers or transducers. The AW329 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 AW339 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).
Continuous power handling: 135 watts

Recommended Amplification: 125 – 150 watts at 4 ohms
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.
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.
