Boston Acoustics HSi 270
Our take on the Boston Acoustics HSi 270 by Crutchfield's Marshall Chase
Boston Acoustics builds their HSi Series is for people who love great sound but not the clutter of speakers. Movie dialogue sounds clear and the notes of woodwinds, strings and brass have a natural tone. Boston Acoustics also designs all their in-wall and in-ceiling speakers for simple do-it-yourself installation. The HSi 270 mounts flush in the ceiling and comes with a magnetic grille that's paintable to blend seamlessly into your home.

Installation: After a 8-7/8" diameter cutout is made the speaker is installed into the opening and held into place with four integral plastic mounting ears. The required depth to install the speaker is 4" from the mounting surface (this includes the thickness of the drywall). Behind the opening there must be a 1" clearance around the speaker to accommodate the ears. The mounting wall material must be at least 1/4" thick for the mounting ears to work.
Paintable: Both the frame and grille can be painted to match the ceiling. A plastic paint mask is included to protect the speaker from being painted as well.
Inputs: The speaker clips will accept bare wire up to 14 gauge.
Magnetic Grille: The grille is magnetically mounted for easy installation.
Optional Bracket: The NCBR6 new-construction bracket (sold separately) can be used to simplify installation in new construction.
