Horizon MCS 100 5.1-Channel Speaker System Takes the Complexity Out of Home Theater
With the same Deep Channel® Design (DCD) woofers and soft-dome tweeters found in all Boston Acoustics Horizon speakers, this MCS 100 speaker system is an ideal solution for getting great sound in any room. The satellites are equipped with 3-inch mid bass driver and .75-inch soft dome tweeter as well as Reduced Baffle Diffraction Design (RBDD) for wider, smoother sound dispersion. Add the included 8", 100-watt powered subwoofer and you've got a system that's music to your ears.
Technology is Key
Racetrack-shaped rear ports, adjustable footing, and integrated
mounting keyholes make these speakers attractive for any space (shown here in black)
All Horizon speakers share certain key technologies. They all use 1-inch Kortec® soft dome tweeters, for smooth, extended high frequency response out to 25kHz. The woofers feature Deep Channel® Design, or DCD, providing increased bass output without the risk of bottoming out. The woofers all have phase plugs for smoother midrange response and increased power handling. With Horizon, Boston introduces RBDD which stands for Reduced Baffle Diffraction Design. The result is wider and smoother dispersion and more life-like sound. Please click on the hyperlink to learn more. Finally, these models feature MagnaGuard® video shielding, making them safe for use near any type of display. Features to Please
All Horizon speakers share certain key features. They all have a racetrack shaped, rear port that is flared on both ends. The shape helps reduce the footprint of the port, taking up less room on the back of the speaker. The combination of the flared opening on both ends of the port tube and its rear location virtually eliminates chuffing, or audible port noise. They all have 5-way binding posts to accommodate the use of any thickness of speaker wire or style of termination. They all come with an adjustable footing, allowing them to sit securely on a flat surface either vertically or horizontally and to be angled toward the listening position. They all have an integrated keyhole for quick and easy wall mounting. The keyhole and standoffs on the back of the speaker keep it far enough off the wall to not block the port, maintaining the sound quality that the Boston engineers intended they have. They all feature a soft-touch finish, giving them an elegant high-end appearance and terrific feel. Sized to Surprise
