Peabody, Mass. -- Boston Acoustics launched five new enclosed drop-in subwoofer systems for the car, returning to the drop-in market after an absence of about two years.
A spokesperson cited dealer feedback and growing segment sales for the launch.
The GTuned systems feature Boston's 10- and 12-inch G1 series subwoofers loaded in a ported prefabricated MDF enclosure covered in black automotive carpet. Each enclosure is designed to optimize the output of the driver it houses.
In the new models, Boston is outboarding its SureSet fuse protection from the subwoofers themselves to a flush-set terminal cup on the enclosure for easier access. SureSet uses a standard ATC fuse.
Prices range from $199 to $849, including subwoofer driver. Each model requires a separately purchased amplifier.
The $199 G110PS features 10-inch subwoofer rated at 200 watts RMS into 4 ohms. The $219 G112PS features 12-inch subwoofer rated at 200 watts RMS into 4 ohms. The $329 G110PD features 10-inch 400-watts subwoofer rated into 2 ohms. The $349 G112PD features 10-inch 400-watt sub rated into 2 ohms, and the $849 SPG555PS features 1,000-watts RMS sub rated into 2 ohms.
