According to consumer electronics news site, twice.com, Boston Acoustics has announced an expansion to the company's Reflection series. This new addition is a three-way floorstanding speaker - the RS 326.
The Reflection series is the mid-level series in the company's selection of component and speaker systems. The RS 326 is the first three-way speaker to be added to the series. It features a piano-black finish, rounded edges, and magnet-mount grilles that line up with the baffle. The company claims this design nearly eliminates acoustic diffraction. The design also allows the speakers to reportedly sound the same whether the grilles are on or off.

Like the higher-level VS series, the Reflection series comes equipped with extended wide bandwidth tweeters to stabilize linear motion, lower distortion, and improved dispersion. The RS 326 also features a central diaphragm termination, which creates a dimple in the middle of the tweeter. Boston Acoustics claims this tweeter design allows for a 2,000Hz crossover point, which would provide smoother transitions in dispersion as the tweeter's frequencies meet up with sound from midranges or woofers.
The RS 326 also comes equipped with dual 6.5-inch woofers beneath a midrange and a tweeter.
The RS 326 has been priced with an MSRP of $999 per speaker.
