    Default Boston Acoustic

    Bought a pair of BA CS225B towers on sale from Vanns for 90 bucks apice with free shipping. Highs were nice, lows were decent, but midrange totally sucked. Ruined the whole speaker. Don't recommend if anyone is looking.

    Are you sure that was the item number. The only thing I see with that number is a center channel that gets good reviews.

    also, what are you driving them with?
    If you are not feeding them enough power, then you really aren't getting to see what the speaker can do. I have never had boston stuff, so I really don't know, but I do know that towers typially benefit from extra power.

    Maybe it was CS226B. Sent them back after a couple of weeks. Powered by a Denon AVR-391. 75wpc. Have a pair of old Polk RTA 8Ts. Vocals (mids) are much better on the Polks.

    I would try changing the mids to a to something of better quality , I realize a proper XO is needed for a change , but for a experament just changing the mids may be the ticket . it sure cant hurt them .
