Boston Acoustics CS 225C
Released October, 2008
The Pros:Audio is very high fidelity, everything can be clearly heard at low volume. Handles high power outputs if required. Handles mid bass well enough to hear the action clearly.
The Cons:Some areas in the mids and highs that are too brassy. Not capable of loud, thumping bass without some serious distortion. Positioning this speaker in the perfect spot for optimal quality is tricky.
The Boston Acoustics CS 225C is a 2-way center speaker that sports dual 5-1/4” DCD Graphite injected Polymer subwoofers and one 1” Kortec soft dome tweeter. The last speaker in the Boston Acoustics Classic series, the CS 225C is designed to function as a center channel speaker alongside two CS 23/26 bookshelf speakers and two CS 226 floor-standing speakers.

In addition, the CS 225C competes against the HS 225 from the Horizon HS series and in fact supports a greater power supply (175w versus 100w), but lacks the 225’s Reduced Baffle Diffraction Design. The CS 225C, however, does feature a Deep Channel Design for greater bass per less amp power, MagnaGuard magnetic shielding for reduce interference, and an acoustically tuned port for superior-quality bass. The CS225 also comes equipped with 5-way gold-plated binding posts for simpler/easier installation and positioning of the speaker. The Boston Acoustics CS 225C is priced at $179.99, a $70 savings from the HS 225.
