Overview: The Boston Acoustics Voyager RK6T2 is a two-way
acoustic suspension loudspeaker with two tweeters and stereo input. The cabinet
is styled to look like a rock and designed and built to withstand the
environmental stresses placed on an outdoor loudspeaker. The speaker is "voiced"

match the other speakers in the Voyager series.

twenty degrees, aimed at the listener and not at the ground, to bring the sound
up to ear level.

Tweeters: The RK6T2 uses two 1" soft dome tweeters for a
stereo output from the single speaker.
