Make the great outdoors even greater

Bring dynamic sound outdoors with the Voyager 40 from Boston Acoustics. Drawing on over a decade of outdoor speaker expertise, Boston Acoustics has outfitted the rugged Voyager 40 with the latest in weatherproofing technology. And the drivers are specially designed for optimum performance in open-air environments. You'll experience rich sonic detail over a wide area. These impressive speakers will be a big hit at your next pool party or cookout.

Designed for long-lasting performance

To achieve its robust performance, each Voyager 40 features a 4-1/2" graphite injected woofer, allowing it to produce amore resonant bass without bottoming out.  The 3/4" soft dome tweeter is made of Kortec®, a multi-layered material exclusive to Boston's tweeters that allows them to deliver smooth, articulate highs without any unwanted resonance. The Voyager 40's tough polypropylene cabinet resists damage from moisture and ultraviolet light, and all the internal parts are sealed and gasketed. The Voyager 40 can even be used safely in marine environments.

Mounting the Voyager 40s is a cinch: the adjustable C-brackets let you aim the sound toward a desired listening area. The bracket is made from heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant aluminum for long-term durability. And the speaker's wedge-shaped cabinet allows for flexible placement, even in tight spaces like corners and under eaves.

Satisfying sound, inside and out

Boston's Voyager Series was created as an all-purpose solution for indoor, outdoor, and marine speaker needs. The speakers are actually optimized for outdoor use, with the ability to project sound in a focused area.

Great Sound

Written by: Joe S. from Lexington VA on June 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I struggled trying to find a GOOD outdoor speaker without spending a fortune. I just put these up and they sound GREAT. They are mounted high, under our porch roof. The bass is more than adequate, the speakers (4) fill the space with rich sound, without overpowering our neighbors, the sound quality is as though I am in the house instead of outdoors.

I am powering them with a Sonos amplifier, plenty of power and the convenience of the Sonos system.

Pros: Full sound - good looking - easy mounting system

Cons: More than I hoped to spend for outdoor speakers, but then I am cheap!

OMG! I love these speakers! I own 2 other sets of Boston Acoustic speakers VR1's and old A60's, which I still love. These small Voyager speakers deliver a fantastic sound. I highly recommend these high powered speakers. My deck and pool area will never be the same.

Pros: small, but delivers a fantastic sound easy to mount.

Cons: none.

Quality is obvious

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Now don't laugh, but I got these to put just master bath shower. Was a little concerned about moisture in the air so played it 100% safe and went the outdoor speaker route. Besides, "in wall" just don't souns as good.

These speakers are rugged, or at least they feel very sturdy. Sound is good, especially for the low end of the product spectrum. Bass is somewhat lacking, so move on up a level or 2. I think you'll be very happy. I've known (owned actually) Boston Acoustics for a long time, and they are a quality manufacturer. So why only 3 stars? Because these are inexpensive and therefore rate a GOOD. But the price at Crutchfield, gets 5 stars. Yeah, even beat Amazon! I like Amazon, but good luck getting tech advice from them.

Pros: Legendary quality, nice sound, rugged construction.

Cons: Speaker is a little small to produce much bass.

Product Research


Overview: The Boston Acoustics Voyager 40s are indoor/outdoor/all-weather high-performance speakers that are specially voiced for open-air use. They have an adjustable bracket to allow you to mount them in a wide variety of locations. The Voyager 40s are sold in pairs.

Woofers: Each speaker is equipped with a 4-1/2" graphite-injected, copolymer woofer for solid, more resonant bass. The Deep Channel Design woofers use a deeply grooved pole plate that enables the voice coil to travel farther for greater output without bottoming out. The woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.

Tweeters: The Voyager 40s feature 3/4" Kortec soft dome tweeters. Kortec is a silky fabric saturated on the underside with a proprietary stiffening agent. Because the inside surface of the dome is ultra stiff, the tweeter tracks the signal with ease and produces an excellent transient attack. Simultaneously, the soft, self-dampening top layer eliminates unwanted resonance, so the sound is smooth and articulate.

Weatherproof: Drawing from over a decade of all-weather speaker expertise, Boston Acoustics built the Voyager series to minimize exposure of acoustic parts to weather and with materials proven to resist the elements. The cabinets are polypropylene and are resistant to impact and UV rays. The grilles and mounting brackets are made of aluminum, and the speaker connectors are gold-plated. All the drivers are manufactured from high-tech plastics, rubbers, and other materials that have been extensively tested for durability.

5-Way Binding Posts: The gold-plated 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, or dual banana plugs.

Note: Two plastic caps in the ends of the binding posts will need to be removed before banana plugs can be used.

Mounting Brackets: The included heavy-duty aluminum C-brackets securely hold the speaker to most any surface while offering enormous placement flexibility. They allow you to rotate the speakers almost 90° each direction after they've been mounted, letting you direct the sound to different areas as needed. The speakers' wedge shape makes corner placement easy.

Note: If you remove the bracket, the 1/4"-20 threaded inserts for the bracket's knobs can be used with 3rd party mounting brackets.

Why did you buy this?

Almost exact replacements for the BA Voyager 4 speakers that I've rocked to for the last five years. That is until my daughter trashed them. [ Mark  Dec 11, 2015 ]
