Our take on the Boston Acoustics Voyager® 50

by Marshall Chase
Boston Acoustics

Outdoor speakers let you move the party outside

Outdoor speakers are built tough -- they laugh at wind, rain and weather. Tuck a pair under your eaves and they'll pump out the tunes to keep everybody smiling and swaying at your next cookout or pool party. We also have some "rock" speakers that blend seamlessly into your landscaped lawn or garden.

Make the outdoors even greater

Bring dynamic sound outdoors with the Voyager 50 from Boston Acoustics. Drawing on over a decade of outdoor speaker expertise, Boston Acoustics has outfitted the rugged Voyager 50 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 50 features a 5-1/4" graphite injected woofer, allowing it to produce more 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 50's tough polypropylene cabinet resists damage from moisture and ultra[kill hyphen]violet light, and all the internal parts are sealed and gasketed. The Voyager 50 can even be used safely in marine environments.

Mounting the Voyager 50 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 in corners and under eaves.

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.

Features

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" 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 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 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.

Great Product & Spectacular Customer Service

Written By dever, Philadelphia on Friday, June 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are great. Wonderful separation of sound, sturdy for outdoor use, and look great on the deck. Even better is Crutchfield's customer service: next-day initial delivery, easy return after I realized the first speakers I ordered were too big for the physical space, next-day credit to my account and next-day delivery on the right-sized replacement order. Beyond anything I expected and puts other companies to shame...

Voyager® 50

Written By sebarbanel@yahoo.com, Glastonbuty, CT on Friday, July 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A solid outdoor speaker. I installed these in my garage where I homebrew year round. The speakers provide solid mid to high end. Given the 5 1/4 woofers and a small enclosure the bass is passable and pretty much what I expected. Overall clarity is good and the speakers create a decent sound stage in a harsh environment.
Pros:
Good sound for the size. Easy to install. Quality materials and construction.
Cons:
None at this time, just understand what you are buying.

Using outdoors with Sonos

Written By Thaddeus, Garrison, NY on Friday, May 31, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are great and with the price through Crutchfield I couldn't go wrong. The speakers were mounted on the rear of my house and provide full, clear sound throughout my backyard. I am using them with my Sonos system and am very happy with that as well.
