Bose Professional Now Shipping EdgeMax In-Ceiling Premium Loudspeakers with PhaseGuide Technology

Bose EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers shown with magnetic grille off (models EM90 and EM180).

Bose Professional is now shipping its EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers. EdgeMax loudspeakers feature proprietary Bose PhaseGuide technology, which provides room-filling coverage while improving overall sound quality compared to the performance of conventional ceiling loudspeakers. Designed for mounting near wall boundaries, EdgeMax loudspeakers project high-frequency sound throughout rooms up to 65' (20m) wide using only perimeter mounting locations, and can effectively cover an area that would require up to four conventional conical-coverage models. EdgeMax loudspeakers can eliminate the need for conventional ceiling speakers mounted in the center of rooms, or surface-mount loudspeakers mounted on walls. And because of their unique design and consistent coverage pattern, EdgeMax loudspeakers reduce the total number of in-ceiling loudspeakers required, enabling installers to move efficiently through the installation, creating great-looking and great-sounding end results. Additionally, EdgeMax loudspeakers produce excellent intelligibility for speech and full-frequency response for music, making them ideal for retail, commercial, industrial, institutional, and conferencing applications.

EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers are available with two different horizontal coverage patterns. EdgeMax EM90 models provide nominal 90-degree horizontal coverage and are intended for in-ceiling mounting near room corners. EdgeMax EM180 models provide nominal 180-degree horizontal coverage and are intended for in-ceiling mounting near wall boundaries centered along target coverage zones. Both models feature 75-degree asymmetrical vertical coverage, which is optimized for ceiling heights between 8' and 20'.

Key features of EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers:
* PhaseGuide technology provides a unique asymmetrical vertical pattern for room-filling coverage when mounting near wall-ceiling boundaries.
* Provides improved room visual appearance for demanding interior designs by eliminating center-of-ceiling or wall-mounted loudspeakers
* High-frequency compression driver for best-in-class audio quality with superior frequency response and coverage consistency versus typical dome tweeters
* Eight-inch woofer with wall-boundary loading, provides extended bass impact
* Two-way passive crossover with 70V/100V transformer
* New auto-hold, spring-loaded mounting arms for fast, easy installs
* Magnetically attached grill for quick access to wiring and tap settings
* Coverage pattern similar to a surface-mount loudspeaker enables stereo designs
* UL1480A listing for air-handling (plenum) space installation

EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers are now available.
