Bose Professional is now shipping its new ControlSpace Commercial Sound Processors – the CSP-1248 and CSP-428 – and three new digital wall controllers, part of a comprehensive Bose platform that includes loudspeakers, controls and software.
The CSP-1248 and CSP-428 “benefit from an onboard CSP configuration utility and intuitive browser-based UI that provide a quick-setup workflow,” according to the Bose announcement.
“Common tasks are presented in a logical manner, so installers can configure the system faster, reducing installation time while increasing setup accuracy,” the company press release says.
Bose CSPs “offer just the right mix of inputs and outputs, including balanced analog I/O and mono-summed RCA inputs, as well as control inputs, control outputs and a mute contact,” according to the company announcement.
A Bose AmpLink output “allows for a simplified digital audio connection to compatible power amplifiers, reducing terminations and related points of failure.”
In addition to enabling configuration via Mac or PC, the rear-panel Ethernet port connects to optional ControlCenter digital zone controllers and the ControlSpace Remote app.

Once installed, proprietary Bose algorithms offer predictable performance, making Bose CSPs the convenient solution end users are looking for. Opti-source level management monitors the input level of up to four sources, maintaining a consistent volume level between them.
DynamicEQ processing expands performance and response at any listening level. Additionally, Opti-voice paging provides a smooth transition between music and page signals.
When combined with the Bose AVM-1 sense microphone, AutoVolume compensation continuously adapts zone output level based on the ambient noise of an active space.
Complementing the new CSP processors are three new user-friendly digital wall controllers: the CC-1D, CC-2D and CC-3D. Each model comes in black or white and is available in regional variants. They feature attractive styling with a single rotary encoder and circular LED ring.
The CC-2D and CC-3D models have a push-button rotary encoder to allow for A/B or A/B/C/D source selection with LED source indicators on the panel.
In addition to the new digital wall controllers, the new CSP and ESP processors are supported by ControlSpace Remote, allowing customized control panels to be built and deployed to end users for wireless control of their systems from mobile phones, tablets or laptops.
