    Hands-on research

    Product Research

    Overview: The Boston Acoustics SoundWare speaker is a compact, high performance speaker that can be placed virtually anywhere. Its unique geometric shape gives you multiple mounting and placement options.

    Driver Technology
    Enclosure Design
    Mounting Options

    Driver Technology

    Tweeter: The SoundWare speaker is equipped with a 3/4" fabric tweeter. The tweeter is suspended over the woofer on a "bridge."

    Woofer: The SoundWare has a 4-1/2" treated paper woofer with a rubber surround.

    Enclosure Design

    Enclosure: The speaker features an acoustic suspension enclosure.

    Color Options: The SoundWare speaker comes in seven standard colors: black, bamboo, espresso, just red, silver, natural, and white. If one of the standard colors doesn't match your décor, the speaker and removable grille can be painted to any color you desire.

    Mounting Options

    Indoor/Outdoor: The speaker is made of weather-resistant materials, so you can place it outdoors as well as indoors.

    Placement Options: SoundWare's unique design allows you to place the speaker on a shelf or mount it on a wall. The supplied mounting hardware allows you to mount it flush or in a corner, and its pivoting mounting bracket lets you aim the sound where you want it. The speaker also includes a 1/4"-20 threaded insert for aftermarket wall-mount brackets or stands, and a tab for attaching a security device.

    Mounting Hardware: Included with the speaker is an assortment of mounting hardware. Two metal keyhole-slot brackets are included; one for a flat wall and one for a corner. If you use a keyhole-slot bracket, you must attach the supplied pivoting ball mount to the speaker. The pivoting ball mount allows the speaker to pivot 20° in either direction and pivot down up to 40° when mounted to a flat wall. The corner mount bracket will not allow the speaker to pivot side-to-side. A set screw keeps the speaker from moving once it has been positioned.

    Customer Q&A

    Crutchfield asked  
    Why did you buy this?

    These speakers have been around for a long time . I have owned a pr. For 8 yrs. Now . They are mounted on my unenclosed front porch . The birds roost on them at night and build nests on them every year. Believe it or not they still sound like new with a rich full sound even at high volume [ chris  Apr 11, 2018 ]
    To hang on ceiling from home theatre center speakers. Not to many to choose from that are small and powerful. All other speakers are klipcsh [ SCOTT  Nov 09, 2017 ]
    Seem to get good reviews in the several sites I checked. Looks like a decent compromise between frequency response and size. [ Nathan  Jul 25, 2016 ]
    The reviews I read about them [ ERIK  May 25, 2016 ]
    Great size, shape, style, and design. Hoping they sound as good as speakers in the BA Solo radio (discontinued, but amazing piece of technology). I need something small and have no room for my older BA tower speakers anymore. [ James  May 13, 2016 ]
    Right combination of size, price, good reviews and comes with mounting brackets [ Sharon  Feb 14, 2016 ]
    I needed small speakers for our bathroom, David recommended these speakers. [ Scott  Nov 14, 2017 ]
    mounting flexibility, unobtrusive, decent sound, paintable, kitchen speakers [ James  Oct 10, 2017 ]
    Seemed to be a great option for background music in my wife's retail Shoppe.. [ DONALD  Oct 02, 2017 ]
    Aesthetics, size, mounting hardware, and sound ... all converge to make this a great selection. [ Stephen  Dec 26, 2016 ]
    Relatively small for a rear surround application [ John  Dec 04, 2016 ]
    Outdoor use [ Luis  Nov 28, 2016 ]
    Because the Bose speakers that came with the house I just bought are so bad! [ MICHAEL P  Nov 07, 2016 ]
    They seemed to fit my need. The sound is great. [ Timothy  Jun 14, 2016 ]
    Size [ Suresh  Jun 02, 2016 ]

    5 questions already asked

    I like these speakers. I bought 4 to pair with 2 Polk floor standing speakers. I love the range they have for a 7.1 surround system. I don't think you could go wrong with this versatile speaker. [ Jamaine  Jan 14, 2017 ]
    Although the sound sent to your speakers may be of less quality you can't buy a better speaker to maximize whatever sound quality you do have. I have 3 pair of these now and highly recommend them [ william d.  Jan 13, 2017 ]
    Yes. The speakers come with mounts. You can either place the speakers in a corner or on a flat wall. 2 separate mounts are included for each speaker. Hope this helps enjoy you speakers. [ roque  Dec 16, 2015 ]
    It does come with a wall mount. It's actually pretty nice too. It's a ball joint mount with a tightening screw, so you can place the speaker at a variety of angles rather easily. [ Eric  Dec 10, 2015 ]
    i gave this as a gift, so I really don't have an answer for you, sorry. [ John  Dec 10, 2015 ]
    I bought four of them. They come with a wall mount and a corner mount. The wall mount permits plus or minus 20 degrees of side-to-side movement. The corner mount permits a forty degree tilt down. The only thing not included are the screws or anchors which go into the wall. They speakers also sound good for the price. [ JOHN C  Dec 09, 2015 ]
    It has been awhile, but if I remember correctly it did come with wall mounts/brackets that I used to hang in the corner of my girlfriend's outdoor porch. I think it may have also come with flush mounts. They discuss mounting on the BA website for these speakers if you go there. [ Turn  Dec 09, 2015 ]
    yes it has a very good mount [ Olin  Dec 09, 2015 ]
    Yes it comes with a mount. [ Michael  Dec 09, 2015 ]
    Crutchfield asked me, as a customer, to answer your question. I'm 64. I have not been asked to do this before, but here goes. If the CD player is not equipped with Bluetooth, then it will need an output jack, which is a place to plug in speakers. Of course you will have to run the speaker wires from the CD player to the speakers. As an alternative for years I have been using a Bose Wave Radio, which has an auxiliary jack. You can run a wire from the output jack on the CD player to the input (auxiliary) jack on the Bose and play music through the Bose, which sounds great. Good luck. [ JOHN  Apr 07, 2015 ]
    It will work just fine. They require wiring to connect then to your CD player. Most areas require shielded cable wire for fire regulations. I have installed these speakers in an Elks club and everyone is happy. [ Olin  Apr 07, 2015 ]
    There isn't a specific operating temperature range listed in the product research and/or owner's manual. For more info on that you, you may want to contact Boston Acoustic's support directly; you can also visit their support website at Hope that helps! [ Larry  Dec 11, 2016 ]  Staff
    No,there is no switch. We use eight of these as ceiling speakers in our church sanctuary. They are driven by four amplifiers, each controlling two speakers. Nice uniform sound throughout the space. HRM [ HINRICH R  Dec 16, 2013 ]
    no on-off switch. typically controlling speaker is done by using a-b speaker buttons on the receiver. [ NATHAN  Dec 16, 2013 ]
    There is no on/off switch. You could easily add one though. [ skangirl  Dec 16, 2013 ]
    Dennis, There is NO on and off switch on the speakers. If you have any more questions, please let me know. Thanks, Efrain [ EFRAIN  Dec 16, 2013 ]
    No there is no on/off switch. [ ANIT  Dec 16, 2013 ]
