Bose Professional introduced a series of products at Infocomm, India 2017, Mumbai. The lineup included- the EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers, Control Space EX conferencing solution and Bose Amp Link digital audio transport, among all.


EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers feature proprietary Bose PhaseGuide technology, which provide 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 feet (20m) wide using only perimeter mounting locations, and can effectively cover an area that would require up to four conventional conical-coverage models. Thus, EdgeMax loudspeakers can eliminate the need for conventional ceiling speakers mounted in the centre of rooms, or surface-mount speakers mounted on walls. And because of their unique design pattern, EdgeMax loudspeakers enable installers to move efficiently through the installation, creating a great-looking and great-sounding end result. Additionally, Edgemax loudspeakers produce superior intelligibility to speech and full frequency response for music, making it ideal for retail, commercial, industrial, institutional and residential applications. Some of the key features are as follows:

• Phase Guide technology produces unique asymmetrical vertical pattern for room-filling sound
• EdgeMax EM90 provides nominal 90°horizontal coverage from room corners
• EdgeMax EM180 provides nominal 180°horizontal coverage from center ceiling-wall locations
• Full-frequency range60–18,000Hz(-10dB)
• Maximum SPL upto119dB continuous and 125dBpeak
• 2-waysystem combines Bose1.3”-diaphragm compression driver and 8” woofer
• Passivecrossoverwith8Ωor70/100Vtransformertaps
• Newauto-hold,spring-loadedmountingarmsforfast,easyinstalls;Shipswithtilebridge
• UL1480listingforair-handling(plenum)spaceinstallation
• Magnetically attached white grille for quick access to wiring and tap settings

EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers are available with two different horizontal coverage patterns i.e. EdgeMax EM90 and EdgeMax EM180. Both models feature 75-degree asymmetric vertical coverage, which is optimized for ceiling heights between eight feet and 20 feet.

The EdgeMax EM180

Taking a look at the EdgeMax EM180 loudspeaker, Bose says the speaker employs a high-frequency compression driver, along with an 8-inch woofer. Internally, the EdgeMax 180 loudspeaker incorporates a two-way passive crossover with a 70v/100-volt transformer, as well as an auto-hold, spring-loaded mounting system to aid integrators during the installation process while security locking the speaker into its desired location.

The UL1480A listed speaker provides a rated frequency response of 45Hz to 20kHz, and it produces a nominal 180-degrees of horizontal coverage.

Bose Professional EdgeMax EM90

The EdgeMax EM90 offers similar performance to the EdgeMax EM180 through a similar driver array, including the 8-inch woofer. The UL1480A listed speaker also includes magnetic grilles that attach easily, along with the auto-hold spring-loaded mounting system.Also like the EdgeMax EM180, the EdgeMax EM90 model features a two-way passive crossover network and 70v/100-volt transformer.

According to Bose the EdgeMax EM90 delivers SPL levels as high as 118dB, and it also produces a frequency response of 70Hz to 16kHz +/-3dB.


The Control Space EX conferencing solutions is a Dante-based processor and under table end point system designed to stream line audio conferencing design and implementation with the purpose built hardware that dilivers microphone integration, connectivity and time-saving software algorithms. It includes the ControlSpace EX-1280C conferencing signal processor and three ControlSpace EX Dante-based under-table endpoints (EX-4ML, EX-8ML and EX-UH).

Operation & Features

Once it starts at the conference room table, the three low-profiles under table boxes (UTB) with integrated Dante and PoE allow multiple microphones and codec connections from the table to the rack with just one Cat 5 cable. The EX-8ML and EX-4ML analog microphone endpoints support eight- and four-channel microphone inputs respectively, with 48V phantom power, built-in Dante audio conversion, daisy-chainable PoE, and onboard 12V power and multiple GPIO per-channel. The EX-UH adds USB and handset audio for expanded codec options and convenient plug-and-play connectivity at the table for BYOD applications.

The EX-1280C processor includes USB, VoIP, analog telephone, and Dante connectivity, eliminating the need to choose from different DSP models for different applications. The 1RU design features 12×8 balanced analog I/O, 12 routable acoustic echo cancellers, 64×64 Dante audio networking, two-line VoIP, a USB port for PC soft codecs, PSTN for analog telephone connections, eight-channel Bose AmpLink output, serial control via RS-232 and UDP, and a convenient front-panel interface with OLED display.

ControlSpace EX components are configured and controlled with Bose ControlSpace Designer 5.0 software. Onboard microphone preset configurations make designing with native Dante microphones easy, while new conferencing-specific algorithms, the Conference Room Combiner and Conference Room Router, offer time-saving presets and setups for standard conference room installations. ControlSpace Remote 2.1 has been upgraded to support the new EX and includes a dialer for creating a complete tablet-based user interface for conference rooms. Drivers for popular control systems are also available.


Bose Amp Link provides a digital audio connection from supported Control Space processors to Amp Link-equipped Bose amplifiers. Daisy-chainable Amp Link uses standard RJ-45 connectors and CAT 5 cables to transport up to 24 channels of low-latency, uncompressed digital audio. It’s available on the Control Space EX-1280C processor, new amplifier models and a new Power Match expansion card.
