Small is beautiful. We can think of no finer example than the Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 Channel Home Theater System (White)
We think this system was designed for people who want the very highest quality sound from their DVD players, Blu-ray players, console games or whatever else they may hook up to their amplifier/receivers but who want to show off their decorating taste, not their audio equipment.
The SoundWare XS's five satellite speakers each are only four and half inches at their longest dimension. And you can mount them on a counter, flat on a wall or even in a corner where a wall meets the ceiling or floor. That along with their neutral white color and two-way driver system means they'll be noticed for their audio power, not their visual presence. Articulating brackets and other mounting hardware are included for each one. And they're all magnetically shielded so they won't interfere with CRT TVs or other sensitive devices.
Complementing the satellites is a 100 watt powered subwoofer that peaks out at 250 watts. But even at high levels that would cause lesser subwoofers to start to distort, this subwoofer's BassTrac circuitry allows for deep, powerful bass with exceptionally low distortion.
So if great sound is important to you but tall, imposing speakers aren't, you're likely to fall in love with Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 Channel Home Theater System.
- High Performance Without Overwhelming Your Listening Room
- The SoundWare XS 5.1 Loudspeaker System is an ultra-compact 5.1 speaker system that brings a new level of style and substance to the fast-growing surround sound home entertainment category. It allows you to enjoy rich, room-filling surround sound with your home entertainment system, while complementing virtually any décor in a stylish yet subtle (even virtually unnoticeable, if desired) manner.
- Five Ultra-compact SoundWare XS Satellite Speakers
- The system's five ultra-compact and stylish SoundWare XS satellites are real two-way speakers (unlike many competitors). Each features a high-performance 2 1/2-inch (64mm) woofer and a half-inch (13mm) tweeter. Wall brackets are included for easy installation of all five satellite speakers.
- Subwoofer Can be Driven to 250 Watts of Peak Power
- The contoured-rectangle subwoofer, colored to match the satellites' snow white finish, features a 100-watt (250 watts peak) amplifier and 8-inch (203mm) graphite injected polymer driver. And it features BassTrac circuitry for deep, powerful bass without distortion.
- How Boston Acoustics Makes Better Products
- Many manufacturers design their products around third-party, off-the-shelf parts. Boston Acoustics engineers every component of every system to meet the highest performance standards (their own). Of course, performance is only one measure of value. So they're careful to build all of their products with strict attention to everything from the choice of materials to the details of fit and finish. It's how they've been exceeding the expectations of serious listeners for more than thirty years.
