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.
Two-Way Speaker Design: Along with a 3.5" polypropylene cone woofer,
the MSurround features a 2.5" Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver for consistent
sound across a wide audio range.
- 2.5" Balanced Mode Radiator: The MSurround loudspeaker features
Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver technology, designed to improve dialog
and surround effects across a broad listening range. The 2.5" BMR driver
uses a flat panel diaphragm that operates in two modes simultaneously. To
reproduce lower frequencies, the diaphragm moves in and out like a
piston--similar to how a traditional driver works. To reproduce higher
frequencies, the diaphragm bends. These two modes of operation significantly
extend the usable range of the driver, resulting in enhanced high-frequency
dispersion for more consistent surround sound.
- 3.5" Polypropylene Cone Woofer: The speaker also contains a 3.5"
polypropylene cone woofer for dynamic bass.
High Quality Crossover Networks: Very high quality crossover
networks featuring low loss film capacitors and low distortion laminated silicon
steel core inductors are utilized for greater clarity and minimal coloration. A
low crossover point delivers clear sound reproduction in midrange frequencies
where the human ear is most sensitive.
Dual Top-Firing Ports: The Boston Acoustics MSurround has two ports on
top to limit proximity effect and optimize performance over a wide range of
placement options. Because of the top-firing ports, the speaker should be placed
at least 3" from the ceiling.
Gloss Finish w/ Leatherette Wrap: The MSurround's gloss
black finish and curved side panels with faux leather wrap can
complement almost any decor.
Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The Boston Acoustics
MSurround is fitted with a set of binding post speaker terminals that will
accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), banana plugs (single only), spade-connectors,
Table-Top or Wall-Mount Options: Because it uses a BMR driver, the MSurround is
shorter than typical speakers with a stacked tweeter and midrange. As a result,
it can more easily fit on your shelf, in a cabinet, or hung on the wall. The
MSurround is equipped with dual 4-way keyhole mounting brackets for vertical or
horizontal wall-mounting. Self-adhesive rubber feet are included to minimize the
vibration transferred from the speaker to the stand, shelf, cabinet, or wall.
This will also help to protect the finish of the loudspeaker and the mounting
location. The rubber feet add 0.25" to the height (when table-top mounted) or
depth (when wall-mounted) of the speaker.
