With their water resistant designs built to IEC 60529 IPX5 standards, rust resistant hardware and connectors, powder-coated aluminum grilles and UV-resistant polypropylene cabinets (available in either black or white), Boston Acoustics’ Voyager speakers are built to withstand the harshest weather and temperature extremes. All models are ideal for mounting to the side of a house, on a deck or porch, poolside, on a boat, or anywhere else a premium sound solution is desired. The super rugged and durable Voyager speakers are also ideally suited for indoor use, as well as indoor or outdoor commercial applications such as restaurants and fitness centers.

Like all Boston Acoustics products, the Voyager speakers are packed with beneficial Smart features that allow users to “play smart” both indoors and outdoors. Key Smart features include:
•Special acoustical voicing for ultimate performance in open-air environments;
•Kortec® 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;
•Deep Channel® (DCD) driver design that makes 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;
•Heavy-duty, aluminum C-brackets and unique wedge shape design that makes mounting easy and aesthetically pleasing

Kevin Zarow, Vice President of Sales for Boston Acoustics, noted: “Outdoor living and entertaining continues to be a very popular trend year-round. Our newly refreshed line of Voyager speakers offers a great selection of solutions that provide not only unprecedented audio performance for the great outdoors, but total ease-of-installation, and of course the durability and reliability that the Voyager speakers are known for."
