Reproduce sound fairly accurately with a neutral to warm tone.

1" Kortec tweeter offers crisp, clean highs.

Great performance for the price--a good choice for those not seeking top-of-the-line performance.

1 agrees

Decent bass quality--dual 6.5" woofers give a good punch in the low end.

1 agrees

Great build quality--thick, durable wood grain finish.

1 agrees

Versatile enough to be useful in a 5.1 surround sound setup or just in a stereo setup for straight music use.

Mids are a bit weak compared to the highs and lows, get lost in the shuffle somewhat.

Boston Acoustics CS 226 is a 2-way floor-standing speaker that sports dual 6.5” DCD Graphite injected Polymer subwoofers and one 1” Kortec soft dome tweeter. The third speaker in the Boston Acoustics Classic series, the CS 26 is designed to compliment the CS 23/26 bookshelf speaker and the CS 225C center speaker in a 5.1 channel high definition theater system. Much like its peers, the CS 226 also competes with the Horizon HS models, most specifically the HS 450 and HS 460 floor-standing speakers. The CS 226 is a weaker speaker, but is priced much more affordably at $249.99 (versus $349.99/$499.499). In addition, the CS 226 still maintains a myriad of pivotal features such as a Deep Channel Design for greater bass per less amp power, MagnaGuard magnetic shielding for reduced interference, and an acoustically tuned port for improved bass. The CS 226 also comes equipped with 5-way gold-plated binding posts for easier/simpler installation and positioning of the speaker.
