Bose Professional is now shipping its EdgeMax in-ceiling loudspeakers featuring the company’s proprietary PhaseGuide technology, which it says is capable of filling a room with sound.
Designed for placement near wall boundaries, the EdgeMax speakers disperse audio throughout a listening space up to 65 feet (20 meters).
Through the PhaseGuide technology, the EdgeMax speakers enable integrators the ability to install the speakers in perimeter mounting locations to cover an area that would normally require four conventional types of speaker products.
The famous Massachusetts company that’s known for its headphones, OEM automotive systems and home theater products, points out the speakers also deliver high levels of intelligibility for speech and music reproduction.
Currently Bose Professional offers a choice of two EdgeMax loudspeakers, which can be used in environments such as retail, commercial, industrial, education and conferencing applications.
Bose Professional EdgeMax EM180
Taking a look at the EdgeMax EM180 loudspeaker, Bose says the speaker employs a high-frequency compression driver, along with an 8-inch woofer.
Internally, the EdgeMax 180 loudspeaker incorporates a two-way passive crossover with a 70v/100-volt transformer, as well as an auto-hold, spring-loaded mounting system to aid integrators during the installation process while security locking the speaker into its desired location.
The UL1480A listed speaker provides a rated frequency response of 45Hz to 20kHz, and it produces a nominal 180-degrees of horizontal coverage.
Bose Professional EdgeMax EM90
The EdgeMax EM90 offers similar performance to the EdgeMax EM180 through a similar driver array, including the 8-inch woofer.
Bose notes the UL1480A listed speaker also includes magnetic grilles that attach easily, along with the auto-hold spring-loaded mounting system.
Also like the EdgeMax EM180, the EdgeMax EM90 model features a two-way passive crossover network and 70v/100-volt transformer.
According to Bose the EdgeMax EM90 delivers SPL levels as high as 118dB, and it also produces a frequency response of 70Hz to 16kHz +/-3dB.
