Home-theater sound has evolved into highly sophisticated components that put movie theater-going listening right in the home. Boston Acoustics’ latest speaker system, the SoundWare S 5.1 Home Theater Sound System, is a high-performance, six-speaker system that adds more power and dynamics to the surround-sound experience.
A step-up version of BA’s popular SoundWare XS 5.1 System, the SoundWare S 5.1 Home Theater Sound System consists of five ultra-compact SoundWare S satellites plus a 10-inch, 200-watt (300-watt peak) powered subwoofer. The system is targeted toward consumers who shun boxy and bulky speakers and find a stylish, compact system more compelling. Apartment dwellers will find it especially attractive.
The SoundWare S speakers are slightly larger than the XS system, creating an even greater acoustic experience. The S satellites contain 3½ -inch mid-bass drivers and ¾-inch tweeters (versus the XS models’ 2½ -inch mid-bass woofers and ½-inch tweeters). Also, the SoundWare S subwoofer provides a significant boost over the XS’s 8-inch 100-watt (250-watt peak power) sub.
SoundWare S 5.1 Home Theater Sound System capabilities include:
The 5.1-system can be easily expanded to a 6.1- or 7.1-channel system. It comes in a high-gloss black finish.
