Wide Dispersion Surround Loudspeaker
t
The VR-MX is the best surround speaker
from Boston Acoustics. The VR-MX is
designed to be used with our VR-M monitors and/or VR900 series loudspeakers,
as well as with any high quality main
loudspeaker. Its innovative shape produces a wide sound radiation pattern,
making it ideally suited for all side wall,
rear wall and ceiling locations.
What makes the VR-MX unique is its ability to act either as a direct or diffuse field
surround speaker—depending on the
surround sound effect desired. Each individual VR-MX surround speaker employs
two speaker baffles—one with an active
woofer, and one with a passive radiator.
When the baffle with the active woofer is
pointed towards the listening area, the
speaker produces a very direct sound
with increased localization of the surround effects. When the speaker is
mounted so that the passive radiator is
facing the listening area, the entire sound
field is more diffuse and the room seems
larger—more like a movie theater or concert hall. Because each pair of VR-MX
speakers is designed and manufactured
as a mirror image set, reversing the effect is as simple as swapping the left and right speakers. Each
VR-MX also employs two tweeters—one on each
baffle—so that regardless of which way the speakers are oriented, the high frequencies always envelop the listener and remain widely dispersed.
This speaker uses the same tweeter and same size
woofer as our highly acclaimed VR-M50 bookshelf
monitor, making it the perfect sonic match with
other VR-M monitors. The output of the 5 1⁄4"
(133mm) woofer is reinforced with a 51⁄4" passive
radiator. This combination delivers powerful low frequency extension to 80Hz. The woofer/passive radiator combo is coupled with two of our patented,
1"(25mm) aluminum dome VR tweeters. This
remarkable driver produces an extremely smooth,
flat response well beyond the audible range. A diecast aluminum heatsink attached to the tweeter's
backplate dissipates heat quickly and efficiently—
assuring cool, trouble-free operation even at very
high power levels.
Available in real cherry wood with gray grilles, black
wood veneer with black grilles, or all white, the VRMX maintains the unique appearance of the VR-M
family. The cabinets are as functional as they are
beautiful, featuring rigid construction and an integrated bracket with hardware that can be used for
either wall or ceiling mounting. The VR-MX is
designed and manufactured at our
Peabody, MA facility, using state-ofthe-art design software, and is built
on our own proprietary
production
lines.
Like
all
Boston speakers it
is built to exacting
standards, widely
re-spected
as
among the industry's tightest tolerances.

SPEAKER ORIENTATION
These labels are located on the rear of each VR-MX.
Notice that the "DIRECT" and "DIFFUSE" arrows are
pointing in opposite directions. This is because the
speakers are configured as mirror imaged pairs.
Positioning each VR-MX with the "DIFFUSE" arrow
facing the listening area will yield a larger, more
ambient surround effect. Positioning each VR-MX
with the "DIRECT" arrow facing the listening area
will yield a more focused sound with increased
localization of the surround effects. Changing from
“DIRECT” to “DIFFUSE” is as simple as swapping
the speakers from one side of the room to the other.
