Designed to compliment the Lynnfield VR Tower speakers, Boston Acoustics today introduced the new Lynnfield VR center channel loudspeakers. Featuring Boston Acoustics MagnaGuard which allows the speakers to safely be placed on top of TVs, the VR 920 and VR 910 are priced at $599.95 MSRP and $349.95 MSRP respectively.
Both speakers incorporate Boston Acoustics’ 1 inch aluminum VR tweeter with Amplitude Modification Device (AMD). Attached to the back each tweeter is a die-cast aluminum heat sink to efficiently cool the speaker when operating at high power levels.
The 7 inch tall VR 920 is a three-way design featuring Boston Acoustics new 3 1/2-inch midrange driver that is vertically aligned with the VR tweeter. Two active 5 1/4 by 7 1/2-inch woofers provide bass down to 55Hz and allow a reduction in height without compromising performance. The VR920's rear mounted vents are smoothly flared at both ends to reduce port turbulence.
Slightly smaller at 6 inches tall, the VR910 is a three driver, two-way design housing the VR tweeter, one active 5 1/4-inch woofer and one 5 1/4-inch passive radiator.
The Lynnfield VR920 and VR910 are sold at Boston Acoustics' specialty retailers.
