Features of Boston RS 230
3-1/2-inch FCCM woofers . 1-inch EWB tweeter. Deep Channel® Design (DCD) for more bass from less amplifier power.Meticulously designed and solidly crafted, the most discriminating enthusiasts will revel in the small details. Each Reflection Series speaker comes cleverly appointed with magnetic grilles and stylish contours for an uncluttered visual appeal. In a two-channel music system, as surrounds in a multichannel home theater, or as front speakers with the RS 223, this versatile bookshelf speaker is compact enough to sit comfortably on virtually any shelf, stand or tabletop.
While looks do impress, one of Reflection Series’ unique features is actually “under the hood.” Our new EWB (Extended Wide Bandwidth) tweeter borrows the same performance attributes found in our flagship VS line—stabilized linear motion, lower distortion, improved dispersion, power handling, and clarity. This was accomplished by special central diaphragm termination (creating a dimple) and rear chamber venting.
All Reflection models incorporate our new Fiber Ceramic Copolymer Material (FCCM) Woofer cones made from a composite of fiber and ceramic materials impregnated in a proprietary copolymer. By combining these multi-composite cones with Boston’s Deep Channel® Design, these woofers produce a smooth response over the entire operating range. That means you get all the thunder of high-output bass and all the subtleties and detail of the midrange—with minimal distortion.
While each speaker baffle features a smooth surface and invisible hardware, the real secret behind Reflection’s Super Linear Plane (SLP) Baffles is their unique ability to nearly eliminate acoustic diffraction. Super-shallow grilles using an invisible magnetic attachment create an almost entirely seamless alignment with the baffle plane to significantly reduce sonic barriers. The resulting sound is equally pristine with the grilles on or off. Coupled with Reflection’s tightly spaced driver placement, each speaker delivers near-point-source sonic coherence, wide dispersion, and astonishing imaging.
