Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a Boston Acoustics Speaker System. These speakers incorporate high-quality components that
produce the famous Boston sound. The SoundWare XS 2.1 is ideally suited for use as a 2.1 channel solution in a high-quality
home theater or music system.
The SoundWare XS 2.1 speaker system delivers exceptionally articulate on-screen dialog, music, effects, and room filling
bass from a small, sleek package. Compact driver placement and quality, system-specific crossovers assure a wide uniform
dispersion for complete coverage of a listening room. All speakers also feature MagnaGuard® magnetic shielding which
ensures the speakers’ magnetic field does not interfere with the television’s picture.
3
Unpacking the System
Carefully unpack the system. If there is any sign of damage from transit, report it immediately to your dealer and/or delivery
service. Keep the shipping carton and packing materials for future use.
Placement Options
The SoundWare speaker can be wall mounted using the supplied hardware or simply placed on a shelf. If it is being placed on
a shelf you can simply attach the adhesive-backed rubber feet and connect the speaker wires.
Attaching the Pivoting Ball Mount
If you plan to use the mounting brackets you must attach the pivoting ball mount to
the speaker. Use the four supplied flat-head machine screws as shown in the illustration.
Mounting the Wall Bracket
Brackets for mounting the speakers on a flat wall or in a corner are supplied. One thing
that is not supplied is hardware to attach the bracket to the wall. Why? Because there
are so many different kinds of surfaces on which the speakers could be mounted. It could be
basic drywall which may or may not have a stud behind it. It could be a wood panel or even a
concrete foundation wall. There is no one type of fastener that we could supply that would work
in all the possible situations. So taking into account the surface the speaker is being mounted on,
acquire the appropriate type of fasteners. You’ll need four for each speaker. If you’re not sure what type of fastener to use, take
the mounting bracket to a friendly hardware store, tell them about the wall you’re mounting the speaker on, and ask them to
recommend an appropriate fastener. Keep in mind the weight of the speaker.
Speaker Connection Polarity
All the speakers in a system must be hooked up with the same polarity or “in phase.” The terminals on the SoundWare
speakers are color coded to identify the “+” (red) and “–” (black) connections. All wire is marked in some way so you can tell
one conductor from the other. The marking may be a ridge molded into the insulation of one conductor, or it may have a
stripe on the insulation, or it may be color coded. Use the marking on the speaker wires to be sure that the “+” terminal of the
amplifier is connected to the “+” terminal of the speaker, and “–” is connected to “–”, at every connection.
Connecting the Speakers
Separate the two conductors of the wire. Remove about 3/8” of insulation from the
end of the wire. Push down on the top of the terminal to open the hole for the
wire. Insert the wire and release the terminal to secure it. Be sure there are no loose
strands of wire. Note: there is a channel in the back of the speaker for the wire (for
wires up to 18 gauge), to keep it neat and out of sight.
Mounting the Speakers
Once you have the bracket mounted and the speaker connected the rest is easy.
1. Put the rounded end of the speaker mount in the bracket and slide it down to
lock it in place.
2. Optional – Insert and tighten the screw to secure everything.
3. You may either hook the satellites’ speaker wires directly to your receiver,
or to the output speaker terminals on the subwoofer. The resulting sound
is the same.

Pivot Set
Screw
The SoundWare speakers pivot on their mounts. Vertically they can go from
facing straight out to being tilted down 40 degrees. When the flat wall
mounting bracket is used they can pivot side to side 20 degrees. (Note:
Corner mounting will not allow the speaker to pivot side-to-side.) Loosen the
pivot set screw on the front of the pivoting ball mount, pivot the speaker into
position and retighten the screw.

The SoundWare speakers can also be mounted using
the supplied corner bracket.
Subwoofer Connections
NOTE: Power is always supplied to the subwoofer electronics unless it is unplugged or switched to the off position using the
power switch located on the rear panel. The auto-on circuitry only activates or deactivates the power amplifier. Make sure
your subwoofer and receiver are unplugged when making the connection.
Power: When plugging your subwoofer in be sure to use a wall outlet, or dedicated electrical outlet. Some receivers will
provide a switched outlet. Do not use this. These on board electrical outlets do not offer the amount of current or proper
isolation required by a power amplifier, such as the one in your amplifier.
Speaker Level
Use these high-level terminals with receivers that do not have a subwoofer output. The speaker inputs accept both left and
right channel speaker signals from your receiver. When using a home theater receiver, set the speaker type to “Large.”
The large setting will produce a fuller sound.

Optional: Connect the satellites to the output speaker terminals on the subwoofer.
Adjusting the Crossover Control
When using the Speaker Level inputs (not the LFE input) the subwoofer’s built-in crossover is engaged. Set the crossover
control on the subwoofer to 180Hz. Fine-tune the crossover setting by ear for the smoothest blend with your main speakers.
The best setting of the crossover control will depend on speaker placement and personal preference.
5
Line Level
Select ”subwoofer-yes” from your receiver’s set-up menu. If the receiver gives a choice of crossover filter frequency, use 150Hz
or 120Hz. Hooked up this way, the receiver’s amplifier is relieved of having to reproduce the difficult low bass signals that can
drive the receiver into audible distortion. In some cases, it can also depend on several other settings within a receiver. We
recommend consulting your receiver manual for further assistance in this area.
Turn off all power. Use a subwoofer cable, as shown, to connect your digital receiver’s LFE subwoofer output to the subwoofer.
Connect the other end to the Line Level In.

Operation
Power On/Off
Plug the subwoofer’s AC cord into a wall outlet. Do not use the outlets on the back of the receiver. Set the power switch to
the desired setting.
OFF – The subwoofer is off and will not produce any sound. You may want to turn your subwoofer off if you will not be using
it for some time or wish to conserve electricity.
ON – The subwoofer is always on. If no signal is detected after several minutes, it will automatically enter the Mute mode.
An LED indicator indicates what mode the subwoofer is in:
OFF – The subwoofer is off
RED – Mute (No signal detected, Amp Off )
GREEN – Audio On (Signal detected, Amp On)
The subwoofer will automatically enter the Mute mode after several minutes when no signal is detected from your system.
The subwoofer audio will then turn ON instantly when a signal is detected.
Crossover Control
Adjusts the frequency of the low pass filter for the subwoofer Speaker Level Input. Set the crossover control on the subwoofer
to 180Hz. Note: This control is not active when using the LFE input jack.
Volume Control
Turn the subwoofer Volume control to the 9 o’clock position. If the subwoofer makes no sound, check the AC-line cord, Power
switch, and input cables. (Are the connectors on the cables making proper contact? Is the AC-line cord connected to a “live”
receptacle, is the subwoofer in either the Auto or On position?)
Adjust the subwoofer Volume control until you hear a match between the main speaker and subwoofer. Bass response should
not overpower the room but rather be adjusted so there is a natural blend across the entire musical range.
Polarity Control
(0° or 180°): Selects regular (0°) or inverted (180°) phase for the subwoofer. Set this switch to provide the fullest, most
dynamic bass. The effect of phase will be most audible on low-frequency percussion instruments or music with a
continuously repeating bass line.

Maintenance and Service
All wiring connections should be inspected and cleaned or remade at least once a year.
If a problem does occur, make sure that all connections are properly made, secure and clean. If a problem occurs in one
loudspeaker, rewire that speaker in a different location within the system. Should the problem persist in this speaker the
problem is within the speaker. If the speaker sounds fine in the new position it is a strong indication of a more in depth issue
with the electronics in the system. In the event that your SoundWare XS 2.1 ever needs service, contact your local Boston
Acoustics dealer or visit bostona.com for a list of dealers in your area.
If your subwoofer does not play, check that all the connectors on the cables are making proper contact and that the AC plug
.
connected to a “live” receptacle.
