It features a larger subwoofer (6.5”) and a superior frequency (52Hz-25kHz). Like its peers, the CS 26 also competes with the Horizon HS models, particularly the HS 60. The CS 26 offers a superior frequency (versus 56Hz-25kHz). The CS 26, however, doesn’t feature the HS 60’s Reduced Baffled Diffraction Design, but it does utilize a Deep Channel Design for greater pass per less amp power, MagnaGuard magnetic shielding for reduced interference, and an acoustically tuned port for superior-quality bass. The CS 26 also includes 5-way gold-plated binding posts for a simpler hook-up and installation of the speaker. The Boston Acoustics CS 26 is priced at $149.99, a $30 savings from the $179.99 CS 26.
