Boston Acoustics SoundWare
Single compact indoor/outdoor speaker (Black)
Our take on the Boston Acoustics SoundWare by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
Enjoy great sound anywhere around your home with Boston Acoustics SoundWare speakers. They feature a compact cabinet that fits easily on shelves, walls, and ceilings. The back of the enclosure sports a unique multi-sided shape, so you can mount the SoundWare at a variety of angles. Set them on a shelf, or up in a corner aimed down toward your listening position. For even greater placement flexibility, simply attach the included pivoting mounting bracket.
This versatile speaker can be used outdoors as well. Mount a pair on your porch or deck to listen to your favorite tunes while doing yard work, cooking out, or just lounging.
The SoundWare speaker comes in seven different colors to suit just about any décor. Plus, you can paint the cabinet and grille for a perfect match with your home's interior or exterior wall color.

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.
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: 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.
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.
