Our take on the Boston Acoustics SX85

by Buck Pomerantz
Boston Acoustics

The clear, well-balanced sound of Boston Acoustics SX speakers offers an excellent performance boost to almost any car audio system.

The SX85 6"x8" speaker combines Boston's Type-S2 tweeter with a heavy duty copolymer woofer and a durable rubber surround. A contoured tweeter plane provides an extended stereo "sweet spot" for smooth, realistic high-frequency response — no matter where you're sitting.

A built-in crossover sculpts the frequencies going to the woofer and tweeter for smooth blending of the highs and mids, and protects the tweeter against power overload. Compact, lightweight neodymium magnets reduce the size of these speakers so they can fit in more vehicles without sacrificing performance.

Note: Although the owner's manual for this speaker says that it's a 5"x7" speaker, our research has determined that it only fits into 6"x8" openings.

Highlights:

  • 6"x8" 2-way speakers (pair)
  • copolymer woofer cone with butyl rubber surround
  • Type-S2 Kortec dome tweeter
  • compact neodymium magnets for shallower mounting depth
  • power range: 2-50 watts RMS (160 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 50-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-1/4"
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
