Boston Acoustics Home Speakers / Subwoofers


By Gideon V. – Sonic Electronix Editor

In this post we will continue to delve into what makes Boston Acoustics audio equipment unique. In part 1 of the Boston Acoustics home audio series we mentioned that the Boston Acoustics brand has been around since 1979. Not only have they stuck around for 30 years and counting, but during that time they have produced top notch home audio/video sound systems. In part 2 of our two-part series on Boston Acoustics home audio products, we will discuss home theater systems, home subwoofers, loudspeakers, and computer speakers.

To truly have a top performing home theater system, you need realistic sound quality. The Boston Acoustics TVee Model Two soundbar speaker and wireless subwoofer is the perfect setup. This soundbar and subwoofer combo will provide an all around balanced sound to enhance your entertainment experience. The TVee improves sound quality to the extent that it will make watching your favorite television program or movie that much more enjoyable. This setup works perfectly with monitors 32” and larger. Altogether it packs 100 watts of room-filling sound.

If you really want to complement your home theater sound system, check out the Boston Acoustics Horizon MCS 100 3” satellite speaker. This speaker is ideal for 5.1 channel home theater or music stereo systems. As a high quality satellite speaker, the sound emitted is smooth and clear. Using the built-in wall mount brackets, these speakers can be mounted as in wall speakers. If you are looking for a slightly bigger pair of satellite speakers, you might consider purchasing the Boston Acoustics MCS 130 3.5” surround speakers. Besides having a bigger midbass speaker, it also has a bigger tweeter than the MCS 100. As a result it produces even louder musical playback and provides a surround sound experience.

One of the best ways to recreate the movie theater experience in your home is to add a home audio subwoofer. The deep bass brings a realism to the entertainment experience, especially during fight scenes and on-screen explosions. The Boston Acoustics Horizon HPS 10HO is a 10” powered subwoofer that can handle 250 watts of continuous power. This home audio subwoofer has speaker level outputs and volume control built onto the unit for easy usability. Distortion is not an issue, even in the most intense movie scenes and musical breakdowns. The Boston Acoustics Horizon HPS 10SE 10” home audio subwoofer is another option for those looking for a sub with about 150 watts of continuous power. It is a great way to add more bass to your home theater sound system.

Home theater sound systems can also be integrated with loudspeakers such as the Boston Acoustics Horizon HS460. This 2-way floor standing loudspeaker does not need any mounting or installation work, just set it where you want it, make the connections, and enjoy the high quality audio. It provides 200 watts of continuous power and has a full complement of tweeters and midbass drivers to provide a balanced acoustic sound.

A discussion of home audio products would not be complete without mentioning computer speakers. If you would like to enjoy high quality sound while at your desk, the Boston Acoustics MM220 powered stereo system is a great addition. This pair of speakers will reproduce detailed sound while connected to any compatible media source such as an iPod or laptop computer. The BassTrac technology provides the low notes and the built-in ½” tweeters dish out the clean highs. They also include a front aux input for connecting a pair of headphones. The MM220 is an all around great speaker setup for your desktop computer or external media player.

Boston Acoustics Bookshelf Speakers / Ceiling Speakers

Since 1979, the Boston Acoustics brand has been known for producing top of the line audio equipment. The Boston Acoustics line includes some of the best home audio/video speaker systems on the market. Boston Acoustics has made a commitment to use only the finest materials in their products. We carry a variety of their fantastic home audio/video products including home theater surround sound systems, home audio speakers, and more. In part 1 of our series on Boston Acoustics home audio products, we will discuss bookshelf speakers, in-ceiling speakers, and in-wall speakers.

If you are looking to build a great home audio system, the Boston Acoustics E series speakers are a great place to look first. E series speakers are specifically designed for bookshelves, cabinets, and counter tops. These speakers sit inside of a walnut enclosure and they are designed to fit alongside the smooth edges and corners commonly found on bookshelves and cabinets. These speakers are available in both 4-1/2” and 5-1/4” sizes. Despite their diminutive dimensions, these speakers fill the room with extremely clear sound.

You can choose between the black and cherry versions to match these speakers with your living room décor. To really create an ultimate setup, check out the custom speaker stand designed for the E series speakers, the Boston Acoustics EFL stand. These aluminum stands are compatible with E40, E50, E60 and E70 speakers. These floor stands also neatly hide the speaker wiring so that you can keep your bookshelf and countertop free from clutter. It creates a tidy look that blends in with the rest of your furniture. To further integrate these speakers with your home’s interior design, you can paint the GroovLock side panels with the color of your choice.

In terms of performance, these speakers pack plenty of punch for their size. The 4-1/2” Boston Acoustics E40 (Cherry) can handle 200 watts of continuous power. In comparison, the 5-1/4” Boston Acoustics E60 can handle up to 250 watts of RMS power. If you want even more power, the E70 is a dual 5-1/4” bookshelf speaker that carries 300 watts of continuous power. Besides handling lows and bass, these models will also provide accurate highs through their built-in 1” tweeters.

Besides the E series, we also carry a few other types of Boston Acoustics bookshelf speakers. The HS60 is a 6-1/2” bookshelf speaker rated at 60 watts of RMS power. This 2-way 6.5” speaker includes a silver grille and, like the speakers in the E series, they also feature MagnaGuard technology to prevent the speaker from distorting the television screen. Another option is the Boston Acoustics MCS130 LCR 2-way bookshelf speakers, which features dual 3-1/2” mid-bass drivers. Rated at 150 watts of power, this speaker also has a 1” soft dome tweeter for handling all of the high notes.

Boston Acoustics in-wall / in-ceiling speakers are a great option for those who want great home speakers but do want to use shelf space. Once mounted these ceiling / in-wall speakers are practically invisible but they provide enough sound to fill up the entire room. The Boston Acoustics DSi280 8” in-wall / ceiling speakers add dynamic sound to the room without wasting space. These rectangular speakers can be installed in any of your walls or ceilings. If you plan to install speakers into the ceiling, another great option is the Boston Acoustics DSi285 8” ceiling speakers. These in-ceiling speakers add great sound to the room without clashing with the room’s décor. These round in-ceiling speakers work great with home theater systems and help create a movie theater atmosphere when watching movies.
