Our take on the Boston Acoustics Bravo II

by Tom Mathew
Boston Acoustics

The Bravo II 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 — brackets and hardware are included. All that placement flexibility means you can enjoy clean, warm sound just about anywhere in your home.

The Bravo II houses a 4-1/2" woofer for excellent midrange performance and a Boston-exclusive 1" aluminum VR® dome tweeter, which delivers clear, crisp highs. Pick up a pair of these speakers for smooth stereo sound, and team them up with a powered subwoofer for improved bass response. Or you can use Bravo IIs as surround speakers in a home theater setup. They're voice-matched to all Boston Acoustics speakers.

The Boston Sound™
All Boston Acoustics speakers have a consistent tonal quality that has come to be known as the Boston Sound. Boston designs all of its speakers to work together seamlessly, delivering natural, balanced sound from one end of the sonic spectrum to the other. Whether you're listening to music or movies, you'll hear a faithful reproduction of what the original artists intended.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Overview: The Boston Acoustics Bravo II is sold as a single speaker, this allows you to use one as a center speaker (not magnetically shielded so it can't be used as a center channel with CRT/tube television), two as a pair of main or surround speakers, or a package of 3, 5, 6, or 7 in a multi-channel home theater system. The Bravo II is voice-matched to the Boston Acoustics P4 series speakers.

Driver Technology

Tweeter: The Bravo II 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 II has a 4-1/2" woofer that's built from the ground up for this speaker and designed to match Boston's P4 series speakers. Rubber surround is used for added durability. The ported enclosure adds to the full sound of the speaker by increasing efficiency.

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

Connections

Binding Posts: The wire terminals are binding posts (4-way), allowing you to connect the speaker wire using dual banana plugs, single banana plugs, pin connectors, or bare wire. Spade terminals will not fit because the posts are recessed into the cabinet. Bare wire up to 12 gauge fits through the spring loaded posts.

Mounting Options

Wall Mounting Brackets: The Bravo II 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.

Tabletop Mounting: Included with the Bravo II is a rear bracket stand which allows the speaker to sit on any flat surface (table, shelf). When the rear bracket stand is removed, the Bravo II tilts up at a 45° angle.

Optional Stands: The Bravo II speaker can be placed on one of two optional stands, the table top stand (item number 065P4TS) or the floor stand (item number 065P4FL).

Great Speakers for My RV

Written By JimH, Camino, CA on Saturday, August 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was looking to improve the sound in my RV and the Boston Acoustics Bravo IIs did the job. Being a wedge-type speaker, they fit perfectly along each side of the RV's entertainment center. Result is I was able to move the sound-stage from the original ceiling speakers to around the TV. They sound Great!
Pros:
Easily fit into tight spaces which is all we have in RVs. Sound is dynamic and a vast improvement over the four ceiling speakers.
Cons:
None
