Great sound and versatile mounting options

The Bravo 20 from Boston Acoustics doesn't just deliver high-performance sound — this compact, multi-purpose speaker also allows for a variety of wall-mounting options, even in tight spaces. It features a wedge-shaped cabinet, so you can position it vertically in a corner or horizontally near the ceiling or floor — brackets and hardware are included. All that placement flexibility means you can enjoy clean, warm sound just about anywhere in your home.

The Bravo 20 houses a 4-1/2" woofer for excellent midbass performance and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, which delivers clear, crisp highs. A unique shallow air channel leading to the speaker's exterior port gives it a thinner profile while allowing it to breathe openly for deeper bass response. Pick up a pair of these speakers for smooth stereo sound, and team them up with a powered subwoofer for even more bass. Or you can use Bravo 20s as surround speakers in a home theater setup. They're voice-matched to all Boston Acoustics speakers.

Perfect fit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Picked these speakers to match two other Boston Acoustics speakers that I already had to finish off my surround system. Placed them in the front right and left and they sound great. Awesome mounting flexibility. Good quality that I expect from Boston A.

Pros: sound and overall quality

Cons: None to date. Time will tell on durability, but I expect no problems from B. A.

Fine as secondary speakers

Written By Charles R, Indiana on Monday, September 07, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall these are nice secondary speakers that can be used as surround or height channels for Dolby Atmos installations. Their lack of bass should stop one from using them as main speakers such as a 2.0 wall installation. With my receiver Audyssey set the crossover at 110Hz (top height) and 150Hz (rear height).

Pros: Fairly high quality construction and they blend nicely with other Boston Acoustics speakers. Includes several mounting options.

Cons: Somewhat expensive due to their lack of a lower end.

The only speaker for the job...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My new RV was lacking in the LR audio dept. and I didn't want to run speaker wires through the well insulated ceiling to mount 6.5 car speakers that are usually used with these rigs. So, I looked high and low for a wall mount or corner mount speaker. These have the hands down most secure mounting method of any on the market. This is important in an RV that has it's share of vibrations going down the road. Standard wall mounting speakers have a pivot point for adjusting angle which would inevitably come loose in an RV. These mounted rock solid where the wall meets the ceiling and I was able to route the speaker wire behind the crown molding to make a very clean install.

Now, on to the sound. Since it was an RV I wanted a 12v head unit which are generally 4 ohms. The Sony receiver I paired with the Boston speakers had a built in 40 watt RMS amp which compensated for the power drop due to ohm mismatch. The end result was sound that rivals my high end home system. Just outstanding warm rich sound that blows away every person who hears the setup. Bottom line is I thought I was spending way too much money on these but really needed their amazing corner mounting system. After a couple of minutes of listening to my favorite tracks, I knew it was worth every penny...

Pros: Mounting system, sound, esthetics, quality.

Cons: Price... but worth it in the end...

OK for Surrounds

Written By elo, United States on Thursday, February 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice bright clear sound. A bit light on the low end, but better than some small speaker that try and boost low freq at the expense of a muddy bass.

Pros: Very nice small size and easy to install the included mounting bracket. Great for surround use.

Cons: In A-B comparisons with other small speakers the low freq is weaker. Would not recommend these as main front speakers as there are much better ones at this price.

Excellent speakers!!!

These speaker are excellent in everyway. They fit on corners of walls, easy to install, and they sound excellent for surround sound. LOVE THEM!!!! I am currently running these with a Yamaha receiver. These are also great for Denon receivers as well

Pros: excellent sound, loud Great speakers!

Cons: Their is nothing I can say that is bad.

Boston Acoustics Bravo 20

Written By GeorgeG, Arl.VA on Friday, March 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice solid construction, the fit and finish if this speakers are top notch. I have then connected to a Yamaha Advantage AV RX-1010 receiver . Sound is crisp. "The Boston Sound" has highs, mids, and lows that all play in perfect balance..easy to hang good brackets for corner walls. I installed them as surround speakers in a home theater setup replacing older Boston Acoustics Micro90XII that I had for over 10 years. Really pleased with the purchase.

Pros: Solid sound, in a wide direction. Excellent midbass. Crisp highs Included brackets allows for a variety of wall-mounting options

Cons: Other than price I haven't found one yet

Driver Technology

Tweeter: The Bravo 20 uses Boston's 1" VR aluminum dome tweeter with AMD (Amplitude Modification Device). This tweeter uses a specially anodized aluminum dome. Compared to a soft dome, aluminum is equally light, yet more rigid. Compared to other hard dome materials, an aluminum dome is unrivaled in its ability to accurately track the input signal. AMD is used to further optimize the aluminum dome's output, without taking anything away. AMD is a patented acoustical tuning device that uses precisely sized hollow tubes positioned in front of the tweeter to refocus short wavelength energy and create an extremely smooth, flat response. This is done without using elaborate electronic components that can degrade the sound's purity.

Woofer: The Bravo 20 has a 4-1/2" copolymer woofer that's built from the ground up for this speaker. A rubber surround is used for added durability.

Bass Management: When setting bass management parameters on your home theater receiver, the outputs for this speaker should be set to Small.

Enclosure Design

ABS Cabinet: The Boston Acoustic Bravo 20's cabinet is made from textured ABS with a matching metal grill (detachable). The speaker is available in a black or white finish.

Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Bravo 20 employs a bass reflex (ported) enclosure with a front-firing port. The ported enclosure adds to the full sound of the speaker by increasing efficiency.


Binding Posts: The wire terminals are spring-posts, allowing you to connect the speaker wire using pin connectors or bare wire. Bare wire up to 12 gauge fits through the spring loaded posts. The binding post are color-coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).

Mounting Options

Wall Mounting Brackets: The Bravo 20 includes a wall mounting bracket which can be positioned vertically or horizontally. The body of the speaker is essentially one quarter of a cylinder so it can be mounted vertically, recessed into a corner, or horizontally at the junction of the wall and ceiling. The bracket can also be mounted perpendicular to the wall anywhere in the room. Mounting hardware is included. The large rectangular hole in the middle of the wall-bracket will fit a single gang electrical outlet to route the speaker wire through a conduit.

Tabletop Mounting: Included with the Bravo 20 are four self-adhesive rubber feet which allows the speaker to sit vertically on any flat surface (such as a table or shelf.) Also, included with the Bravo 20 is a rear bracket stand which allows the speaker to sit horizontally on a flat surface. When the rear bracket stand is removed, the Bravo 20 tilts up at a 45° angle (when placed horizontal).
