About Bose’s RoomMatch Asymmetrical Array Module Loudspeakers
Bose recently introduced these 22 new RoomMatch models with horizontally asymmetrical coverage patterns. Building upon the innovative designs pioneered by the Bose engineering team, with the addition of these asymmetrical array modules, the RoomMatch series now includes 42 unique coverage patterns providing system designers with unprecedented coverage control and scalability. The asymmetrical pattern modules improve sound quality in many room shapes by reducing side-wall reflections, which helps improve consistency of sound quality, seat-to-seat, without the need for “yaw in” array aiming. The asymmetrical pattern modules also improve stereo soundstage effects when used either in left/right pairs or in L/C/R array configurations. The modules feature the industry’s only large-format asymmetrical waveguides, with pattern control down to 800 Hz, which improve vocal clarity by reducing room reflections in the critical 1-4 kHz vocal intelligibility range. All RoomMatch full-range modules utilize six Bose EMB2 extended–midrange compression drivers with 2-inch voice coils for the high frequencies and dual Bose LF10 high-excursion, 10-inch woofers with 3-inch voice coils for the low frequencies. RoomMatch full-range array modules feature a frequency response of 60-16k Hz (+/- 3 db) with long-term continuous power handling of 500 W and peak handling of 2000 W.
