Multi-Channel Home Theater or Stereo-Only Music Systems
For over 3 decades Boston Acoustics’ unwavering commitment to deliver superior and innovative audio solutions of exceptional value lives on. Like all Boston Acoustics products, the new CS models are packed with Smart features that allow consumers to experience pure, rich sound reproduction of all their music and movie soundtracks: Smart features include:
•Kortec® Soft Dome Tweeters for crystalline high-frequency sound. Kortec is a polyester woven dome with a special stiffening agent creates a tweeter with the high frequency extension typically associated with metal dome tweeters, but without the harshness that is a property common to most metal domes
•Advanced graphite-injected woofers featuring Deep Channel® Design (DCD) for more bass from less amplifier power. DCD drivers make the most of the available amplifier power by using a deeply grooved pole plate that enables the voice coil to travel farther, for greater output without bottoming
•Acoustically tuned ports, adding to the deep rich bass frequency response
•5-way gold-plated binding posts for hookup flexibility and to ensure purity of signal transfer in all speaker connections
•MagnaGuard® magnetic shielding to prevent video interference
