BS 243: Performs like a large speaker
In order to make the musical imprint of this compact monitor as true to life as possible, special attention was given to the three-dimensional sound radiation pattern, so that the room is acoustically "energised" in a consistent and harmonised way.
The BS 243 is particularly well suited for positioning near a wall on a shelf or on a dedicated stand.
It is designed to work either in small or medium-sized living areas as a Hi-Fi stereo speaker or alternatively in large spaces as rear speakers in a surround-sound setup.
When the BS 243 is connected to a digital surround receiver the speaker option in the receiver's menu should be set to "LARGE". However, when very high volume is required it is better to set the option to "SMALL" and set the corresponding crossover frequency to a maximum of 50 ... 60 Hz.
