Boston Acoustics Dual 2 Way Crossover


Had requests for a high end center channel kit, so I went into stock to see what I could come up with that would meet these requirements.

Crisp Clean Sound, Strong Bass, Warm Mid Range, Clear Highs and Good Power handling Capacity, High and Low.

I started looking at the high end woofers I had for the down low, ESS Labs, can't go wrong there. It is a very nice 6 1/2" woofer with a very large magnet structure, with 1 1/2" voice coil it will handle some power.

Next I needed a killer tweeter, what I came up with was a Cerwin Vega Horn. I've been holding these a side for that special project, well this is it. They are very good, clean crisp highs and a good range to keep the middle coming at you.

To tie them together I offer the Boston Acoustics Dual Woofer Two Way, it's crossover point is very well matched to the range of the speakers in the kit.

So dollar for dollar, I don't you can find better anywhere, and once married to a nice cabinet you'll have a speaker worth hundreds more....

What I'm was looking for over all was a nuce little Center Channel or Book Shelf / Floor Tower speaker with a range of about 35 Hz. to 20 kHz. plus and a power range of 5 to 150 watts at 8 ohms. If that is what you want, then this is the kit for you. 

Taking the ESS Labs woofers into the lab I got these specs...

    • 1 1/2" Voice Coil

I bought a new 3D plasma HDTV last spring and needed to get it a little higher on my TV cabinet since I wear trifocals. My old center channel speaker was a littlle too small for the new HDTV to safely sit on so I decided to build a larger center channel speaker. Due to my previous positive experiences with Mavin speaker components I decided to go with this kit for my project.

I also wanted a speaker that had more sonic and dynamic range as most of the conversation in a DVD or Blu- [ more]
