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.
Woofers: The speaker uses a Dual Voice Coil 6 1/2" copolymer
woofer. The two voice coils output both left and right channels of the stereo
Tweeters: The Metro has two 1" Kortec soft dome tweeters,
angled out to create a wider stereo image. 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
light, grilles and brackets are 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.
Stereo Input: The Voyager Metro is designed as two speakers
in one cabinet. There are inputs for both left and right stereo channels. The
two inputs feed two separate tweeters and the woofer's two voice coils. The
result is stereo sound in a location where you only want to mount one speaker.
5-Way Binding Posts: The gold-plated 5-way binding posts
will accept bare wire up to 11 gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana
plugs, or dual banana plugs.
Location: Matching the all weather design, the Voyager
series is specially voiced for open-air environments like the patio, deck, or
any other open setting.
Mounting Brackets: In addition to being corrosion resistant
powder coated aluminum, the included mounting bracket offers enormous placement
flexibility. It allows you to tilt the speaker up and down almost 90 degrees
after it's been mounted, letting you direct the sound to different areas as
needed. Horizontal mounting is recommended, placing the tweeters on a horizontal
plane to create the best stereo image.
