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.
Overview: The Boston Acoustics Voyager 50s 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 50s are sold in pairs.
Woofers: Each speaker is equipped with a 5-1/4"
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 50s 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
Note: If you remove the bracket, the 1/4"-20 threaded
inserts for the bracket's knobs can be used with 3rd party mounting
