The ultimate home theater and digital music speaker for medium and large rooms.
Boston BT Series set new performance standards for speakers designed for use in
A/V cabinetry or the front theater stage. Coupled with appropriate amplification,
BT systems are capable of delivering massive output typically associated with commercial
movie theater or concert hall performances. From explosive music and pounding effects
to the most artistic texturing and softest whispers, BT’s extraordinary power handling
and sensitivity allow extreme audio levels while preserving the subtlest details.
All without the enormous speaker size and mass normally required for true big theater
sound. Sound so detailed and dynamic, it’s utterly stunning. Clear and uncolored
across the entire audio spectrum. This is the award-winning, true-to-the original
performance known as the Boston Sound.
Every aspect of the BT1 has been thoroughly thought out. The height of the BT1 is
a standard component size of 171/2" allowing easy installation into A/V cabinetry.
Die-cast “finger pulls” positioned at the front of the speaker enclosure provide
easy installation in tight cabinet spaces, supplied neoprene pads prevent scratching
and allow for smooth slide-in positioning of the speakers. All cable input terminals
and switches are recessed at the rear of the speaker.
The BT1’s midrange/tweeter baffle can rotate 360 degrees for horizontal or vertical
placement in cabinetry—maintaining the proper sonic vertical alignment of
the mid-range and tweeter. The baffle may also be angled for more accurate imaging
when the speaker is far off-axis. Made from ridged die-cast aluminum, the baffle’s
thermal mass provides tremendous heat dissipation for the midrange and tweeter improving
power handling and reliability.
The BT1 uses Boston’s 1-inch VR® high-output aluminum-dome tweeter, and 4½-inch
neodymium midrange with 1½”-inch voice coil. An 8-inch woofer using a 1 ½-inch voice
coil, neodymium magnet and cast aluminum basket provides powerful bass. This driver
compliment delivers an astounding 220 watts power handling with 93dB sensitivity.
The BT1 will live behind a perforated video screen or cabinet grille cloth in most
installations. It features a Screen Compensation Switch to accommodate installation
in this environment. A Flush Mount Switch can compensate for response anomalies
caused by placement issues found in some theater stages and A/V cabinets. It also
comes with full-coverage metal grilles for bookshelf or speaker stand placement.
