Overview: The Boston Acoustics TVee 26 is a two-piece home
theater entertainment system that consists of a soundbar speaker and wireless
subwoofer with virtual surround sound. The TVee 26 offers dramatically better
sound quality than your flat-panel TV's built-in speakers. The soundbar &
wireless subwoofer system brings powerful and dynamic audio to your movies,
music, and games. There is only one cable which connects the system to your
television and you can control it with your TV's remote.
150 Watt (RMS) System Power: The soundbar and wireless subwoofer are
self-powered and each are equipped with its own built-in amplifier. The TVee
26 features a total system power of 150 watts to drive both the soundbar
and wireless subwoofer. With a total system power of 150 watts, the TVee 26 virtual surround sound speaker system envelops you in rich, room-filling
Soundbar Speaker: The TVee 26's soundbar achieves its stunning
audio performance through the use of Boston's low-distortion, wide-bandwidth
HHRT (Hyperbolic High Rigidity Transducer) driver technology. The Boston
Acoustics TVee 26 soundbar is equipped with dual 2" x 5" HHRT
(Hyperbolic High-Rigidity Transducer) drivers inside a bass-reflex enclosure made
of ABS plastic. The soundbar can be placed above or below your flat-panel TV. It should be centered with your television. There are two large
keyhole slots (22.75" apart) to facilitate mounting it on a wall (mounting
Wireless Subwoofer: The wireless-powered subwoofer is equipped with a
down-firing 6.5" woofer inside a bass-reflex enclosure with a down-firing 2.25"
(diameter) port. The wireless subwoofer's enclosure is made of ABS and has been
internally braced with MDF to eliminate resonance. The TVee 26 system's 6.5"
down-firing wireless subwoofer delivers deep and powerful bass. The TVee
26's powered subwoofer gets its signal from the system's soundbar wirelessly
(2.4 GHz), so it can be placed virtually anywhere in the room (up to 25').
Digital Optimized Virtual Surround (DOVS): The TVee 26 features
Boston's Digitally Optimized Virtual Surround (DOVS) processing for pinpoint,
theater-like, surround sound. Digitally Optimized Virtual Surround (DOVS)
technology from Boston Acoustics uses sophisticated digital processing to create
a fully immersive, cinema-quality sound experience, whether you're listening to
music, watching a movie, or playing a game. DOVS decodes the full, Dolby
Digital 5.1 channel audio signal from the source material and applies a
proprietary process to derive the ideal 2.1-channel version of the original
surround sound mix. You can indicate whether you have table-top or
wall-mounted the soundbar speaker for better imaging. The soundbar's exclusive Boston DSP control switch
maximizes performance for movies and music.
- Movie Mode: In the Movie Mode, Boston's Digitally Optimized
Virtual Surround delivers clear movie dialogue and music along with
cinematic surround audio effects.
- Music Mode: The Music Mode provides enhanced digital stereo music
BassTrac Circuitry: The powered subwoofer utilizes BassTrac circuitry
for tight, distortion-free bass at all output levels. `
One Wire TV Connection: The TVee 26's soundbar speaker connects
to your television with either a single stereo RCA cable or optical digital
cable (also requires AC power). You can get this signal from your TV's audio
output, or from your satellite/cable box. The powered subwoofer gets its signal
wirelessly (2.4 GHz) from the soundbar; it only requires plugging into an AC
- Analog Stereo: The soundbar speaker features two analog stereo
inputs to connect your TV, sat/cable box, or other audio/video component.
- Digital Optical: The soundbar speaker also features an optical
digital input for Dolby Digital decoding from your connected TV or sat/cable
Volume Controls: The
soundbar speaker is equipped with front-mounted volume controls and comes with
an IR remote control. You can also
program your television's or satellite/cable box's remote control to operate the
soundbar's volume. The wireless subwoofer features a rear-panel
independent volume control (min-max).
Trim Level Switch: The soundbar's trim-level switch changes
the input sensitivity (1-3) of the TV 26 to match the output level of your
TV or satellite/cable box.
