EdgeMax EM180

Description

Bose Professional EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers feature proprietary Bose PhaseGuide technology with high-frequency compression drivers to create a new category that combines the room-filling coverage patterns typical of larger surface-mount speakers with the architect-preferred aesthetics of in-ceiling models. Designed to mount near wall-ceiling boundaries, EdgeMax loudspeakers provide improved audio quality and coverage, while reducing the number of required units, compared to conventional dome-tweeter ceiling speakers.

Key Features

PhaseGuide technology – provides unique asymmetrical vertical pattern for room-filling coverage when mounting near wall-ceiling boundary
Provides improved room visual appearance – for demanding interior designs by eliminating center-of-ceiling or wall-mounted loudspeakers
Nominal 180° horizontal coverage – designed for in-ceiling mounting along wall coverage zones
High-frequency compression driver – for best-in-class audio quality with superior frequency response and coverage consistency versus typical dome tweeters
8-inch woofer – with wall-boundary loading provides extended bass impact
2-way passive crossover – with 70/100V transformer
New auto-hold, spring-loaded mounting arms – for fast, easy installs
Magnetically attached grill – for quick access to wiring and tap settings
UL1480A listing – for air-handling (plenum) space installation

Specification

Frequency Response (+/-3 dB)50 Hz – 18 kHz
Frequency Range (-10 dB)>45 Hz – 20 kHz
Nominal Dispersion75° Vertical / 180° Horizontal
Long-Term Power Handling125 W (500 W peak)
Sensitivity (SPL / 1 W @ 1 m)93 dB SPL
Maximum SPL @ 1 m114 dB SPL (120 dB SPL peak)

PowerMatch PM8500/PM8500N power amplifier

Description

The Bose® PowerMatch PM8500 configurable professional power amplifier provides concert-quality sound with a high level of scalability and configurability for fixed installation sound reinforcement systems. Ethernet-equipped versions enable network configuration, control and monitoring, and an expansion slot supports input from optional digital audio accessory cards. PowerMatch amplifiers utilize numerous Bose technologies to deliver an unprecedented combination of performance, efficiency and ease of installation—all in a reliable, proprietary design.

Key Benefits

QuadBridge™ TechnologyAllows each 4-channel loudspeaker block to be configured as Mono, V-Bridge, I-Share or Quad modes, allowing the total available power of the amplifier block to be allocated to one or more output channels. The amplifier is capable of driving both low impedance and 70/100V loudspeaker loads directly.
Bose® ControlSpace® Designer™ softwarePowerMatch amplifiers can be fully configured using ControlSpace Designer software via the onboard front panel USB connection, or the rear panel Ethernet connection (network models only). Using ControlSpace Designer software you can access additional features including: Parametric EQ stages, load sweep of each output channel and auto standby. ControlSpace Designer software is also used to integrate network model PowerMatch amplifiers into larger control and monitoring systems comprised of Bose ESP processors and CC control centers.
Auto-Standby/Auto-Wake functionWhen enabled, this function automatically enters/exits Standby Mode, allowing the system to consume less power.
QuadBridge™ TechnologyAllows each 4-channel loudspeaker block to be configured as Mono, V-Bridge, I-Share or Quad modes, allowing the total available power of the amplifier block to be allocated to one or more output channels. The amplifier is capable of driving both low impedance and 70/100V loudspeaker loads directly.
Dual voltage and current feedback loopProprietary design combines Class-D efficiency with a unique current and voltage feedback loop circuit that continuously monitors and controls both the current and voltage delivered to the loudspeaker load. Independent of power level and load impedance, the amplifier consistently delivers the widest possible dynamic range, frequency response and lowest possible distortion.
PeakBank™ power supplyRegenerative 4-quadrant power supply enables higher power density while allowing the re-use of energy from reactive loads that is normally wasted in conventional Class-D designs. This highly efficient amplifier design delivers sustainable and repeatable low frequency response.
Fast-tracking power factor correction (PFC)Efficiently manages the current drawn from the AC mains, allowing the amplifier to drive loudspeakers to maximum output longer without power fluctuation. PFC provides superior transient response and functions at peak burst power much longer than conventional Class-D amplifier designs to satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding program material.

Specification

Maximum Rated Power4000 W (500 W x 8 channels at 4 ohms)
Input Channels8 (balanced line level)
Output Channels2 to 8 (configurable)
