Overview: The Boston Acoustics
TVee Model Two is a 2-piece Television Entertainment Enhancement system. It
consists of a slim, single stereo "soundbar" that can be placed above or below the TV,
and a matching wireless bass speaker. It is designed to greatly enhance the
sound of your TV, replacing your TV's tiny speakers and weak amplifier with a
total system power of 100 watts. The system can learn the power and volume commands from
your TV's remote control.
Design: The speaker cabinets are
made of molded ABS plastic. They are internally
braced with MDF to eliminate resonance.
Grille: The TVee soundbar is
equipped with a removable onyx (black) cloth grille. The bass unit does not have
Boston P.O.P.: The Boston Personal Option Plan (P.O.P.) allows you to
match your environment with optional grilles in multiple colors for the Horizon
series speakers. In addition to the Onyx (black) grille that comes with the
speaker, you can purchase grilles in Glacier, Chocolat, Rose Bud, Chili Pepper,
Silver, Caramel, or Pearl Gray. These optional grilles are available directly
from the manufacturer.
Connections: All the TVee Model Two needs is a stereo audio signal fed
into the soundbar. You can get this signal from your TV's audio output, or from
your satellite or cable box. The bass unit gets its signal wirelessly from the
Controls: The soundbar has three top-mounted controls: Power, Mute,
and Volume Up/Down. If the input signal from your TV or cable box is variable,
the TVee's sound will vary when you change the volume using the TV or Cable Box
remote. If the input signal is a constant level, you can "teach" the TVee to
respond to your TV's remote control.
Tweeters: The TVee soundbar uses dual 1/2" dome tweeters,
one for each channel, for crystal clear high frequencies.
Mid-Bass Drivers: The TVee soundbar has four 2-1/2"
mid-bass drivers, two for each channel.
Bass Unit: The TVee's wireless bass unit is equipped with a
down-firing 6" woofer.
Enclosures: The soundbar and wireless bass unit each have
bass reflex enclosures. The soundbar has ports on each end, while the bass unit
has a down-firing 2" diameter port.
Soundbar Placement Options: The TVee soundbar is perfectly
sized for TV screens of 32" or more. It is designed to be centered with the
screen. It can be placed in front of the TV, or on a shelf right above if the TV
is housed in a cabinet. There are two large keyhole slots to facilitate mounting
it on a wall.
Bass Unit Placement Options: The TVee bass unit gets its
signal from the soundbar wirelessly, so it can be placed virtually anywhere in
the room. It only requires plugging into an AC outlet.
