Founded in 1979, Boston Acoustics is a prime manufacturer of premium home and mobile audio equipment operated out of Peabody, Massachusetts. Boston Acoustics entered the mobile audio category in 1983. Boston Acoustics manufactures many of the woofer, midrange, and tweeter transducers used in their products at the Peabody facility and maintain a complete engineering staff on site.

Boston produces speakers for home, custom/architectural, and vehicles. They also produce OEM equipment which is factory-fitted to a variety of cars including Chrysler 300, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Caliber, Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Jeep Compass vehicles.

Boston Acoustics has produced home loudspeakers such as the E, HD, VR-M, & Lynnfield Series, and on the mobile side Pro, Z, & SPZ reference component speakers. The tweeters are matched within +/-1.5dB typical of high quality drivers. They have a reputation for top level sound quality but at moderate prices. Recently Boston Acoustics was granted a patent for "audio speaker having a removable voice-coil" United States Patent #7272237 for the SPG subwoofer produced by the mobile audio division. Prior to this patent, electrodynamic speakers affix the voice-coil permanently to the speaker cone. The Boston Acoustics patent allows for voice-coil removal should the it become damaged during an extended overdrive condition and is the first of its kind in the consumer electronics industry.

In August 2005, D&M Holdings completed their acquisition of Boston Acoustics. BA continues to operate as a D&M subsidiary. [cite web|url=|title=D&M Holdings Inc. Completes Acquisition of Boston Acoustics, Inc.|date=2005-08-29]
