Framingham, MA (April 13, 2012)—Bose Professional Systems Division has introduced its latest FreeSpace products: the FreeSpace IZA 250-LZ/190-HZ integrated zone amplifiers and the FreeSpace ZA 250-LZ/190-HZ zone amplifiers.
The new FreeSpace IZA integrated zone amplifiers are designed for background/foreground music and paging applications. Proprietary Bose Opti-voice paging provides paging over music, reportedly ensuring speech is heard at the appropriate sound level in the selected area. When used with Bose FreeSpace DS 40 and DS 16 loudspeakers, sound is processed through onboard selectable EQ presets.
The new FreeSpace ZA zone amplifiers provide basic amplification and sound system expansion when using front-end signal processing from Bose FreeSpace business music systems and Bose ControlSpace engineered sound processors. They can also be combined with the FreeSpace IZA amplifiers to function as one system—with double the power—sharing the same music paging sources, master volume control and optional loudspeaker equalization.
The FreeSpace IZA and ZA amplifiers can be used as standalone products from any RCA line-level source, or with other loudspeakers and legacy systems. They integrate Class-D amplification to provide powered channels that can operate at low (250-LZ models) or high (190-HZ) impedance: 2 x 50 W (4-Ohms) or 1 x 90 W (70/100V systems), respectively.
