Boston Acoustics Voyager® 50
Outdoor speakers (White)
Our take on the Boston Acoustics Voyager® 50 by Crutchfield's Marshall Chase
Make the outdoors even greater
Bring dynamic sound outdoors with the Voyager 50 from Boston Acoustics. Drawing on over a decade of outdoor speaker expertise, Boston Acoustics has outfitted the rugged Voyager 50 with the latest in weatherproofing technology. And the drivers are specially designed for optimum performance in open-air environments. You'll experience rich sonic detail over a wide area. These impressive speakers will be a big hit at your next pool party or cookout.
Designed for long-lasting performance
To achieve its robust performance, each Voyager 50 features a 5-1/4" graphite injected woofer, allowing it to produce more resonant bass without bottoming out. The 3/4" soft dome tweeter is made of Kortec®, a multi-layered material exclusive to Boston's tweeters that allows them to deliver smooth, articulate highs without any unwanted resonance. The Voyager 50's tough polypropylene cabinet resists damage from moisture and ultra[kill hyphen]violet light, and all the internal parts are sealed and gasketed. The Voyager 50 can even be used safely in marine environments.
Mounting the Voyager 50 is a cinch: the adjustable C-brackets let you aim the sound toward a desired listening area. The bracket is made from heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant aluminum for long-term durability. And the speaker's wedge-shaped cabinet allows for flexible placement, even in tight spaces like in corners and under eaves.
Boston's Voyager Series was created as an all-purpose solution for indoor, outdoor, and marine speaker needs. The speakers are actually optimized for outdoor use, with the ability to project sound in a focused area.

Overview: The Boston Acoustics Voyager 50s are indoor/outdoor/all-weather high-performance speakers that are specially voiced for open-air use. They have an adjustable bracket to allow you to mount them in a wide variety of locations. The Voyager 50s are sold in pairs.
Woofers: Each speaker is equipped with a 5-1/4" graphite-injected, copolymer woofer for solid, more resonant bass. The Deep Channel Design woofers use a deeply grooved pole plate that enables the voice coil to travel farther for greater output without bottoming out. The woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.
Tweeters: The Voyager 50s feature 3/4" Kortec soft dome tweeters. 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 rays. The grilles and mounting brackets are made of 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.
5-Way Binding Posts: The gold-plated 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, or dual banana plugs.
Note: Two plastic caps in the ends of the binding posts will need to be removed before banana plugs can be used.
Mounting Brackets: The included heavy-duty aluminum C-brackets securely hold the speaker to most any surface while offering enormous placement flexibility. They allow you to rotate the speakers almost 90° each direction after they've been mounted, letting you direct the sound to different areas as needed. The speakers' wedge shape makes corner placement easy.
Note: If you remove the bracket, the 1/4"-20 threaded inserts for the bracket's knobs can be used with 3rd party mounting brackets.

Why did you buy this?
Still have my first pair from 10yrs ago. Going strong! [ Chad Jun 07, 2017 ]
I have a sound system inside my man cave outbuilding. I like to sit outside and smoke a cigar in the evening, but just having the shed door open to hear the music doesn't give me a proper sound stage. Also, I don't want my cigar smoke inside the building where my coffee roaster and ham radios are. So I thought I'd give these speakers a whirl. Got white because these speaks will be in the south Texas sun for ~8 hours per day in the summer. [ Jon Sep 14, 2018 ]
I bought the same speakers 20 years ago and they have worked great. [ JOHN Apr 09, 2016 ]
1 question already asked
2 answers Environmental limits? I live in south Texas and I recorded a temperature of 116.9° this summer, and I have seen it stay in the low teens for days in winter. Now Texans are tough, but not even I am going to be outside groovin' to tunes in those extremes. My question is at what extremes CAN I play these speakers? They will be mounted on a west-facing wall with no real eave to speak of, unfortunately. I looked up the owners manual and found no useful info there. Thanks. [ Jon Sep 03, 2018 ]
I used these speakers in Honduras for 5 years on an outside patio. Now they are in NC on an outside patio, still perfect.. Major temperature change and humidity was through the roof. [ TIM Sep 08, 2018 ]
I have two pair of these speakers. One of which I bought 15 years ago. They've been hanging outside from day one. Through rain, snow and full sun. Still work perfectly. Highly recommend them. I think they should be fine in your conditions. [ Chad Sep 07, 2018 ]
