Boston Acoustics unveils home theater speaker trio

Boston Acoustics Mid 2007

Home audio specialists Boston Acoustics on Tuesday introduced three individual speaker series for HDTVs and other home theater setups. The high-end Horizon models (pictured) are designed for flexibility and include different sizes of satellites and subwoofers. The system starts at $100 for a pair of simpler HS 40 bookshelf speakers but scales upwards to include the premium HS 460 floor-standing speakers at $400. Owners can also mix and match subwoofers between the 10-inch, 150-watt HPS10 SE ($300) to the 300-watt HPS 12HO ($500). A wireless sub, the 8-inch HPS 8Wi ($400), is available for setups where bass is needed away from the main satellites.

Tighter confines are served by the TVee Model Two, a complement to most flat-panel HDTVs: the 100-watt system adds stereo sound through four mid-range drivers and two high-range tweeters, and bundles a 6-inch wireless subwoofer that can be placed closer to the audience for enhanced effect. The whole unit will sell for $400 and will join the Horizon-series speakers when both ship in September.

Rounding out announcements is the SoundWare mountable system: each two-speaker pair is mountable on walls, railings, or other unusual areas and can be used in some outdoor locations. Designs ship in colors from a conservative black to red but are paintable to blend in with decor or a natural environment. Boston Acoustics sells them today for $100.
