Our take on the Boston Acoustics HSi460T2

by Tara W.
Boston Acoustics

The Boston Acoustics HSi460T2 delivers rich, full stereo sound from a single speaker. It's perfect for enjoying music in areas where you don't have room to install a pair of speakers, like a hallway, bathroom, or kitchen. The speaker mounts flush in the ceiling and comes with a paintable, magnetic grille to blend seamlessly into your home. It features inputs for both left and right channels as well as two 3/4" tweeters (one per channel). And a 6" woofer with dual voice coils takes care of the mids and bass with power and precision.

An NCBR5 in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing this speaker in a new home under construction or in a room that's undergoing major renovation. (Brackets sold as a pair.)

High Humidity Design: The Boston Acoustics HSi H460T2 is a high-humidity speaker for single location stereo in-ceiling installation. The HSi H460T2 is ideal for bathrooms, saunas, or other high-humidity locations. The HSi H460T2 is designed for outstanding durability as well as outstanding sonic performance. Rubber surrounds, coated steel hardware, aluminum grilles, specially coated crossover network, and a copolymer speaker cone help in protecting the HSi H460T2 from the elements.

Stereo Application: The Boston Acoustics HSi H460T2 6-inch Stereo In-Ceiling Speaker delivers single-speaker stereo to hallways and other spaces of your home, thanks to its dual woofer voice-coils and both left- and right-channel inputs.

Dual Tweeters: The Boston Acoustics HSi H460T2 features dual 0.75-inch aluminum dome tweeters which are angled for wide sound dispersion.

6-inch Woofer: The Boston Acoustics HSi H460T2 features a 6-inch Boston Acoustics Deep Channel copolymer woofer.

Connections: The HSi H460T2 is equipped with two pair of 5-way, gold-plated, binding post terminals to connect to your stereo amplifier.

Reduced Bezel Design: The HSi H460T2 6-inch Stereo In-Ceiling Speaker features a reduced bezel design for seamless integration with your wall or ceiling.


Paintable: The grille and bezel of the HSi H460T2 can be painted, allowing you to match the speaker with your wall or ceiling finish. A plastic paint shield is included.

Installation: The Boston Acoustics HSi H460T2 can be easily installed in your existing wall or ceiling. The round shape and flush-design allow the HSi H4602T to mimic the look of a recessed lighting fixture. The in-ceiling speaker requires a cutout diameter of 6.75" and a depth of 4.25" (from surface). Each speaker frame has a 8.065" diameter. Once the holes are cut, each speaker is placed in the opening and the rotating cams are tightened, allowing you to secure each speaker to the drywall (0.3125"-1.375" thick) without any extra assembly. 

New Construction Bracket (Optional): The optional new construction bracket (NCBR5, sold separately) is intended for new construction applications only; the bracket is neither needed nor helpful for installations in existing walls.
