Peabody, MA — Boston Acoustics’ SoundWare XS 5.1 Surround Speaker System (MAP: $499) features the smallest loudspeakers Boston Acoustics has ever introduced — five ultra-compact SoundWare XS satellites, each measuring less than four inches, plus a compact subwoofer.
Each tiny satellite provides the rich audio power and performance of a true two-way speaker, with a 2.5-inch (65mm) woofer and a half-inch (13mm) tweeter. An compact powered subwoofer completes the system with a 100-watt (250-watt Peak) amplifier and eight-inch (200mm) driver. The SoundWare XS 5.1 system is expected to be available in July 2009 in both black and white.
The tiny SoundWare XS satellites feature SoundWare’s signature polyhedron shape, as well as the line’s unique articulating mounting bracket, which allows for an unprecedented range of easy and flexible placement options. They can be installed into a corner, in the middle of a wall, where the wall meets the ceiling, or even placed behind a couch facing straight up for total invisibility. The two included brackets mount the speaker just 1 cm from any flat surface or flush in a corner, and when mounted flush on a wall, the speaker can be aimed downwards or sideways to provide ideal positioning.
The SoundWare XS system’s eight-inch powered subwoofer, with its powerful 100-watt (250-watt Peak) amplifier and compact design, can be hidden in a corner, placed behind furniture, or can take “center stage” without taking over your living room. This great sounding and great looking powered subwoofer completes this amazing surround sound speaker system.
For consumers who want to customize the look of their SoundWare speakers to stand out or complement the décor of any environment, all SoundWare speakers feature “Paint-Ready” cabinet surfaces.
