Boston Acoustics VR960 Lynnfield Tower Speakers

Each Tower has a 4-1/2 inch Midrange, 1-inch Lynnfield Tweeter, 8-inch Subwoofer
Each Tower has a built-in 75-watt amplifier to power the Subwoofer

The Boston Acoustics VR960 speakers are in excellent condition. The original MSRP was $1000 for 2 cabinets. All drivers are original and in great condition. The most critically acclaimed components of this speaker set are the Lynnfield tweeters and powered subwoofers. These are 3-way slim towers that won’t take up much room and will shake the house with their powered subwoofers.

One of the more distinctive loudspeaker formats. It combines a relatively slender column enclosure with a built-in powered subwoofer. Building the bass module into the speaker enables the designer to match the mid/high-frequency part of the system to the subwoofer, eliminates the need for a separate subwoofer enclosure, and greatly simplifies system setup.

The VR960 is a tall column that's only 6-1/2 inches wide, 42-1/4 inches high, and 14 inches deep. At the top of the enclosure is a 4 ½ -inch midrange cone driver, operating in a sealed volume, that crosses over at 3 kHz to a 1-inch Lynnfield aluminum-dome tweeter.

In the middle of the cabinet is the bass section, with an 8-inch driver and its 75-watt amplifier in a sealed sub-enclosure. The driver radiates to the side of the cabinet, about 22 inches above the floor. The subwoofer's amplifier is built into the bottom rear of the cabinet with its heat sink facing down.

The cabinet's rear panel, has a pair of five-way binding-post terminals that accept wires, lugs, or single or dual banana plugs, a knob for varying the subwoofer level, and a single RCA jack labeled LFE, for Low-Frequency Effects. The LFE jack is intended for use in a 5.1-channel Dolby Digital home-theater system, where the “1” or LFE channel delivers special low-frequency program content (under 100 Hz) from Dolby Digital-encoded soundtracks.

Because the woofers are powered, you need nothing more than a small receiver to fill a large room with impressive, powerful Boston Acoustics sound.

Quote from professional review lab: “The Boston Acoustics Lynnfield VR960 is a relatively compact, attractive, and affordable loudspeaker that can do justice to the most demanding program material — a rare combination of qualities.”
