As part of an expansion of its Business Music Systems portfolio, Bose Professional has introduced new power amplifiers, including PowerShare and PowerSpace power amplifiers.
PowerShare power amplifiers:
Bose Professional has expanded its line of PowerShare adaptable power amplifiers with two new models: the Dante-integrated PS404D and PS604D, joining the recently introduced models with AmpLink connectivity, the PS404A, and PS604A.
With the release of PowerShare adaptable power amplifiers in 2016, Bose Pro has upgraded them with a new advantage — the freedom to put amplifier power where it’s needed and waste less of the amplifier’s drive potential where it’s not.
“The notion of a multi-channel amplifier that breaks free from the fixed-power-per-channel architecture has been well received,” reported Bose Pro amplifier product line manager, Ashraf Elghamrawi. “Integrators told us that ‘power-sharing’ makes their projects more responsive, and they asked for digital input options for even more flexibility.” In response, Bose Professional added these four new digital models.
The new PS404D (400 watts divisible into 4 channels) and PS604D (600 watts divisible into 4 channels) PowerShare amplifiers feature integrated Dante audio networking for increased connectivity flexibility while giving installers the freedom to place the amplifier away from the source. The recently introduced PS404A and PS604A offer AmpLink connectivity, which is Bose Pro’s in-rack Cat 5/6 digital audio distribution solution and is supported in its latest DSP units. The Dante models allow mixed inputs using either digital or onboard analogue audio connections.
PowerSpace power amplifiers:
Bose Professional has presented PowerSpace amplifiers, a new line of five cost-effective amplifiers offering the right power levels and DSP options for premium commercial applications.
PowerSpace amplifiers integrate seamlessly with Bose Pro’s expanding line of loudspeakers, processors and control devices. The line includes three models with Bose AmpLink connectivity and two models featuring an integrated DSP.
Ideal for zone-expansion applications, the P21000A, P2600A, and P4300A models (2 x 1000, 2 x 604, and 2 x 300 watts respectively) can enhance commercial installations with reliable power and digital connectivity. A Bose AmpLink input allows for multiple channels of uncompressed, low-latency digital audio from Bose digital sound processors via a single Cat 5 cable, and versatile outputs give you the flexibility to deliver full channel power to either low- or high-impedance loads — without bridging — and even send double power to a single zone.
Additionally, the P4300+ and P4150+ models (4 x 300 and 4 x 150 watts) combine power and built-in DSP into a space-saving 1RU design for quick-turn installations. An onboard configuration utility and intuitive browser-based user interface present common tasks in a logical manner, allowing for faster system configuration and thereby reducing installation time while increasing setup accuracy. Once installed, proprietary Bose algorithms offer predictable performance, while optional interfaces — such as ControlCenter analogue zone controllers — make operation easy for end users.
