Bose’s Professional Systems division is offering new rigging accessories promising easier-to-assemble ground stack arrays of its RoomMatch array module loudspeakers.
More details from Bose Professional Systems (http://pro.bose.com):
Now, the 20 unique RoomMatch full-range coverage patterns and RMS215 subwoofer can support stage- or ground-mounted front-fill applications and temporary side-stage coverage in areas that require removable seating, such as performing arts centers.
The new ground stack accessories include a base frame that attaches to the RMS215 subwoofer and enables one or two full-range RoomMatch modules to be mounted on adjustable-pitch brackets. New subwoofer brackets allow the base frame to be used with up to three subwoofer modules, and through optional casters, be easily moved to different stage locations.
Introduced in 2011 and recently expanded with several new modules, the Bose RoomMatch series offers a new class of curvilinear array loudspeaker – the progressive directivity array – providing both concert-quality sound for live music and clear vocals for spoken word, with unmatched seat-to-seat tonal balance consistency for installed sound systems. The full-range modules are available in 20 different combinations: horizontal coverage patterns of 55, 70, 90 or 120 degrees, and vertical coverage patterns of 5, 10, 20, 40 or 60 degrees.
The progressive directivity array offers the ability to vary both the horizontal and vertical coverage patterns for each module in the array based on the room dimensions. More precise coverage control helps sound system designers ensure good intelligibility with spoken-word program material, especially in reverberant rooms, as well as the best possible tonal balance throughout the listening area.
