Great sound and versatile mounting options
Great sound and versatile mounting options
The Bravo 20 from Boston Acoustics doesn't just deliver high-performance sound — this compact, multi-purpose speaker also allows for a variety of wall-mounting options, even in tight spaces. It features a wedge-shaped cabinet, so you can position it vertically in a corner or horizontally near the ceiling or floor — brackets and hardware are included. All that placement flexibility means you can enjoy clean, warm sound just about anywhere in your home.
The Bravo 20 houses a 4-1/2" woofer for excellent midbass performance and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, which delivers clear, crisp highs. A unique shallow air channel leading to the speaker's exterior port gives it a thinner profile while allowing it to breathe openly for deeper bass response. Pick up a pair of these speakers for smooth stereo sound, and team them up with a powered subwoofer for even more bass. Or you can use Bravo 20s as surround speakers in a home theater setup. They're voice-matched to all Boston Acoustics speakers.

Tweeter: The Bravo 20 uses Boston's 1" VR aluminum dome tweeter with AMD (Amplitude Modification Device). This tweeter uses a specially anodized aluminum dome. Compared to a soft dome, aluminum is equally light, yet more rigid. Compared to other hard dome materials, an aluminum dome is unrivaled in its ability to accurately track the input signal. AMD is used to further optimize the aluminum dome's output, without taking anything away. AMD is a patented acoustical tuning device that uses precisely sized hollow tubes positioned in front of the tweeter to refocus short wavelength energy and create an extremely smooth, flat response. This is done without using elaborate electronic components that can degrade the sound's purity.
Woofer: The Bravo 20 has a 4-1/2" copolymer woofer that's built from the ground up for this speaker. A rubber surround is used for added durability.
Bass Management: When setting bass management parameters on your home theater receiver, the outputs for this speaker should be set to Small.
ABS Cabinet: The Boston Acoustic Bravo 20's cabinet is made from textured ABS with a matching metal grill (detachable). The speaker is available in a black or white finish.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Bravo 20 employs a bass reflex (ported) enclosure with a front-firing port. The ported enclosure adds to the full sound of the speaker by increasing efficiency.
Binding Posts: The wire terminals are spring-posts, allowing you to connect the speaker wire using pin connectors or bare wire. Bare wire up to 12 gauge fits through the spring loaded posts. The binding post are color-coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).
Wall Mounting Brackets: The Bravo 20 includes a wall mounting bracket which can be positioned vertically or horizontally. The body of the speaker is essentially one quarter of a cylinder so it can be mounted vertically, recessed into a corner, or horizontally at the junction of the wall and ceiling. The bracket can also be mounted perpendicular to the wall anywhere in the room. Mounting hardware is included. The large rectangular hole in the middle of the wall-bracket will fit a single gang electrical outlet to route the speaker wire through a conduit.
Tabletop Mounting: Included with the Bravo 20 are four self-adhesive rubber feet which allows the speaker to sit vertically on any flat surface (such as a table or shelf.) Also, included with the Bravo 20 is a rear bracket stand which allows the speaker to sit horizontally on a flat surface. When the rear bracket stand is removed, the Bravo 20 tilts up at a 45° angle (when placed horizontal).
