   Boston Acoustics Car Audio Begins Shipping the G5
          Subwoofer and GTR Passive Radiator
 This sub and its companion radiator are optimized for small enclosures delivering
                       deep and remarkably accurate bass

CES 2005, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2005 — Boston Acoustics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOSA), a
premier manufacturer of high performance audio solutions for use in home music and
audio-video systems, after-market and OEM automotive systems begins shipping two
new car audio models – the G5 High Performance Subwoofer and the GTR

Offering several first-time features on a car audio subwoofer, the G5’s unique and
stunning design allows for installation in small enclosures – only 1.0 cubic feet for the
12-inch model and 0.5 cu. feet for the 10-inch model! The GTR TunableRadiators™
provide additional bass without extra amplifiers or enclosures. A perfect complement to
the G5, a single GTR increases bass by +3dB.

The G5 is high performance all the way with 3-inches of peak-to-peak excursion for
exceptionally deep and precise bass of pure Boston Sound ™. The oversized 2.75-inch
voice coil and Boston Acoustics patented RadiaVent® cooling system increases power

handling. The integrated vents and the woofer’s own pistonic action, re-circulates fresh
air around the voice coil.

The G5 is the first automotive subwoofer to offer in-field stripping in order to replace a
damaged voice coil and woofer cone. The interchangeable SPS™ (Soft Part System)
places the cone, spider, surround, and voice coil on a removable assembly for fast on-
site repairs.

Additionally, the patented SureSet™ system uses standard ATC fuses, allows for simple
impedance selection (dual 4-ohm model only) and provides momentary overdrive
protection. Rugged spring-loaded input terminals accept bare 8-gauge wire or pin

Coupled with a G5 Subwoofer, the low-profile GTR Tunable Radiator™ increases
overall bass output without additional amplification or enclosure volume, immediately
increasing bass output by +3dB. Three user tunable adjustments underneath the
removable dustcap, reveal precision weights that allow for individual vehicle
requirements or musical preferences. The slim mount design is only 3-inches deep and
can be placed anywhere.

Like all Boston Acoustics car audio products, the G5 Subwoofer and GTR Tunable
Radiator™ were completely designed and engineered in the Peabody, MA facility and
are tuned to +/- 1dB of the reference master.

The G5 Subwoofer and GTR Tunable Radiator™ comes in two sizes– 12-inch and 10-
inch. The G5 offers both a single 4-ohm and a dual 4-ohm model. They can be seen with
other fine Boston Acoustics products at Booth#1427 in the Central Hall at the Las
Vegas Convention Center during CES.
