The Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 Loudspeaker System (Black) is an ultra-compact 5.1 speaker system that brings a new level of style and substance to the fast-growing surround sound home entertainment category. It allows users to enjoy rich, room-filling surround sound with their home entertainment systems, while complementing virtually any decor in a stylish yet subtle (even virtually unnoticeable, if desired) manner.
The system's five ultra-compact and stylish SoundWare XS satellites are real two-way speakers (unlike many competitors). Each features a high-performance 2-1/2" (64 mm) woofer and a 1/2" (13 mm) tweeter. The contoured-rectangle subwoofer, colored to match the satellites in either black or white, features a 100-watt (250 watts peak) amplifier and 8" (203 mm) driver.
