Boston Acoustics Introduces New High-Gloss Black Version of Acclaimed P400 High Performance Slim Theater Speaker

-- Two Other P Series Models Now Available in Black Finish; Company Is Committed to Providing Simple and Stylish Solutions for Enjoying Great Sound With Flat-Panel TVs --

Denver, CO, September 4, 2008 - Boston Acoustics , Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, today announced the introduction of a new version of its popular flagship P400 High Performance Slim Theater Speaker (MAP: $900) with a high-gloss black finish. The critically acclaimed P400 broke new ground in the flat-panel speaker category by providing left, center, and right channels all in a single unit. The new finish will also be available on two other popular P Series models, the P450 (MAP: $500 each) and P442 (MAP: $400). All P Series speakers are designed to complement all sizes of display devices and are engineered to deliver powerful, room-filling audio in a slim compact chassis design that's ideal for use with today's flat panel solutions.

Noted Phil Cohn, Boston Acoustics Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing: "The explosion of sales in flat-panel TVs continues to create broad consumer demand for easy-to-use and easy-to-install products that enhance the viewing experience with great surround sound. By offering our renowned Model P400, as well as our two other P Series models in high gloss black, as well as continuing to offer them in silver, we're giving consumers more options for creating high-performance home theater audio systems that match perfectly with a wide variety of displays, interior decors and living environments."

P400: Three Surround Sound Channels in One Bar-Shaped Space-Saving Solution
Featuring one 4½-inch Neo magnet woofer per channel, one 4½-inch passive radiator per channel, and one 1-inch VR® aluminum dome tweeter with AMD™ per channel, the Boston Acoustics P400 is a groundbreaking three-channels-in-one solution that ushers in the next generation of home theater sound, with a bar-shaped design that fits perfectly on the wall below a flat-panel display.

With the exception of the P400, each P Series model is designed as a single-channel speaker sized to match the vertical dimension of an appropriate display screen. Thus, the P460 Speaker is best suited for screen sizes approximately 60-inches and larger diagonally, the P450 Speaker for displays roughly 50-inches and larger, the P442 Speaker for displays 42-inches and larger, and the P430 Speaker for screen sizes 26-inches and larger.

P Series Provides Total Custom Installation Flexibility
The value of the P Series goes beyond its incredible acoustic performance and stylish esthetic. For custom installation professionals and retailers, the P Series has been designed for total ease and flexibility of placement, delivering the maximum number of solutions for customers with the minimum investment in inventory. All models are acoustically tuned to be easily mixed and matched for a given application.

Every P Series speaker, for example, is designed for use as a left-, center, or right-channel speaker, eliminating the need for retailers to stock an additional matching center channel model. Every P Series speaker also ships with both black and silver grilles, enabling one speaker unit to serve, for inventory purposes, as a left, right and matching center speaker in both available colors. Each P Series speaker also comes supplied with a rugged wall-mounting bracket that makes it easy to position the speaker vertically or horizontally. Additional mounting options include the elegant P4TS Table Mount (MAP: $80, each) and stylish P4FL Floor Mount (MAP: $320, a pair), both available separately.

TVee Model Two: Innovative "Soundbar" Solution
In addition to the P Series, Boston Acoustics offers another elegant and affordable solution for adding great sound to flat-panel TVs with its innovative TVee Model Two, A Television Entertainment Enhancement System. The system consists of a slim single "soundbar" that can be placed above or below a television, or easily mounted on the wall, along with a matching wireless woofer that can be placed anywhere in the room to deliver added dynamic bass response. With the TVee Model Two, it's quick and easy to add enhanced enjoyment to the TV viewing experience. Users simply plug a single wire from the sound bar into their television's line-level output, and because the woofer is wireless, it can be placed virtually anywhere, even in a corner behind the couch, and still provide added bass response.

To make it easy for customers to individualize the look of their TVee Model Two, the system features the company's new P.O.P. (Personal Option Plan) that lets users customize the look of their product using easily removable & replaceable cloth grilles that are available in a wide variety of colors.
