PLASA Focus: Leeds 2012: Bose to introduce FreeSpace innovations

This year’s PLASA Focus: Leeds show will see Bose Professional Systems Division unveil its latest FreeSpace products.

With over 2,500 people expected at this year’s show, the company will exhibit the FreeSpace IZA 250-LZ/190-HZ integrated zone amplifiers, and the FreeSpace ZA 250-LZ/190-HZ zone amplifiers. The integrated zone amplifiers are designed for background/foreground music and paging applications, while also offering enhanced flexibility and configurability for creating optimum sound and paging solutions for retail stores, schools, hotels, restaurants, and houses of worship.

Proprietary Bose Opti-voice paging is designed to offer seamless paging over music, ensuring that clear speech is heard at the required sound level. When utilised alongside Bose FreeSpace DS 40 and DS 16 loudspeakers, the audio quality is further optimised via onboard selectable EQ presets. Furthermore, they can also be combined with the FreeSpace IZA amplifiers to function as one system, sharing the same music paging sources, master volume control, and optional loudspeaker equalisation.

For further flexibility, 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.

As well as the new FreeSpace amplifiers, The PowerMatch 8500 amplifier will also be on display. Designed to work with both RoomMatch array modules and other professional loudspeakers, it can allocate its 4000W rated power between two and eight channels.
