The RoomMatch® Utility RMU208 loudspeaker is designed for use in high-quality foreground music, under-balcony, zone fill, and vocal-range floor monitor applications
Framingham, Massachusetts, July 23, 2013 – Bose® Professional Systems Division has expanded its RoomMatch® range of array module loudspeakers with the RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format sound-reinforcement loudspeaker. The RMU208 is designed for use in high-quality foreground music, under-balcony, zone fill and vocal-range floor monitor applications in performing arts centers, civic auditoriums, houses of worship, secondary education and college auditoriums, dance clubs, hospitality and more.
The loudspeaker features a single Bose EMB2 compression driver (with 2.0-inch voice coil) to provide mid/high-frequency voicing similar to the RoomMatch full-range array modules. The EMB2 driver features a patented phase plug that lowers distortion and allows the use of a lower crossover frequency to improve vocal sound quality.
Dual Bose LF8 8-inch woofers (with 2.0-inch, extended-excursion voice coils) provide full-range output down to 80 Hz (+/-3 dB), and a 90° x 60° constant-directivity high-frequency horn provides wide, even coverage and may be rotated 90° in the enclosure.
The RMU208’s Quasi-3-way passive crossover with separate filters for each transducer provides uniform frequency and polar response; the 80-16,000 Hz frequency response and 125 dB maximum peak SPL allow for use in high-performance system designs. Long-term continuous power handling is 300W and peak power handling is 1200W.
The enclosure is constructed of baltic birch plywood with a 2-part polyurethane coating to resist scratches and scuffs. The multi-angle cabinet design allows for flexible use in varied applications, and the system includes a U-bracket and four additional M8 threaded inserts on the enclosure’s rear surface provide additional mounting flexibility.
The new RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format loudspeakers can be powered by Bose PowerMatch® amplifiers, or any professional amplifier with the appropriate power rating. The RMU208 loudspeaker will be available through authorized Bose dealers beginning in October 2013. For more information please visit http://pro.Bose.com.
