Offering exceptional sound at an affordable price, the Boston Acoustics CS 23 II Two-Way 3-1/2-Inch Bookshelf Speaker is an ideal addition to your home theater or music system. It has been engineered with high-grade components to ensure stunning audio reproduction across a wide range of frequencies. A Kortec soft-dome tweeter offers crisp, high frequencies, while graphite-injected woofers deliver more bass response from less amplifier power.
Bookshelf Speaker Provides Immersive Sound
With the CS 23 II Bookshelf Speaker, you can enjoy your favorite media in richly detailed stereo sound. The speaker features a traditional square cabinet engineered for optimal acoustics. Pair it with other speakers from the Classic II series to create an expansive, cinematic soundstage.
Audio Technologies Deliver Stunning Performance
Each speaker in the CS 23 II is outfitted with Boston Acoustics' best audio technologies. The system incorporates Boston's Deep Channel Design: the polymer woofers are injected with graphite, allowing them to produce a more resonant bass sound without bottoming out. The tweeters feature a soft-dome design and have been treated with a stiffening agent to eliminate the high-frequency feedback that usually accompanies metal tweeters.
Together, the tweeters and woofers are able to reproduce frequencies ranging from 120 Hz to 25 KHz, ensuring faithful playback of your movie's audio track.
Smart Design Enhances Audio Experience
The CS 23 II also incorporates other smart audio-enhancing features. The speaker wires are equipped with five-way gold-plated binding posts, which ensure a secure and reliable wire connection. The gold plates also help preserve signal transfer, minimizing frequency losses and gaps. Additionally, the speaker features MagnaGuard magnetic shielding, which helps prevent video interference when the speaker is placed close to your screen.
Easy, Flexible Installation Options
The CS 23 II is designed for a quick and flexible installation. The speaker features a tower design and can be mounted on a wall or simply placed on the floor. Keyhole wall brackets are built into the speaker to ease wall-mounting. The speaker's wires are extra pliable, allowing you to place it wherever you choose.
Stylish Wooden Finish
The CS 23 II matches its exceptional audio quality with equally exceptional style. The speaker boasts two finish options; each complements a variety of furniture styles. It also features a traditional box cabinet, giving it a classic, balanced aesthetic.
The Goal of the Classic II Series
Boston's Classic II Series was designed to offer consumers an affordable, entry-level speaker solution without sacrificing sound quality. The series continues Boston's tradition of creating stylish, high-performance box speakers.
Boston Acoustics creates all of its speakers following the Play Smart approach to product design--sensible, useful, smart design features combined with contemporary styling.
