Designed for use in houses of worship, auditoriums, museums, transportation facilities, lecture halls, conference facilities and theaters, the new Panaray MSA12X Modular Steerable Array Loudspeaker will be previewed during the 2017 InfoComm show. The self-powered Panaray MSA12X features an unobtrusive acoustic design with twelve full-range 2.25-inch transducers (with 75 Hz – 14 kHz response) in a columnar line array configuration, to provide consistent audio levels with outstanding vocal intelligibility and full-range music reinforcement in acoustically challenging spaces.
The MSA12X model includes 12 internal power amplifiers (50 watts per channel; total 600-watt rated power) and onboard DSP to allow digital control and beam steering of array vertical coverage patterns. Proprietary Articulated Array configuration allows wide, 160-degree horizontal coverage. Independent level and EQ control is supported for two separate beams per array, and onboard memory stores up to 10 user-selectable presets. The MSA12X features both Dante network connectivity and line-level analog input.
The modular design allows up to three MSA12X units to be vertically arrayed to increase coverage distance and low-frequency pattern control. The slim, low-profile elegant enclosure mounts close to surfaces, blending in with the visual aesthetic of a space, and its digital control eliminates protruding pitch brackets. An integrated mounting bracket allows up to 90-degrees of pivot away from surfaces. Design, setup, and control of beam coverage is provided by Bose Professional Modeler and ControlSpace software. The MSA12X is available in either black or white finish and is paintable.
New MB210 Compact Subwoofer
Bose Professional is also introducing the new MB210 compact subwoofer, featuring two 10-inch high-excursion woofers, derived from the award-winning Bose Professional F1 portable powered subwoofer, in a compact Baltic-birch plywood enclosure optimized for fixed-installations. Featuring outstanding performance-to-size ratio, the MB210 is designed to complement Bose Professional FreeSpace, Panaray, and RoomMatch Utility loudspeaker models with additional bass response, down to 37 Hz.
The MB210 compact subwoofer is rated for 500 Watts long-term power handling, 123 dB SPL continuous with 129 dB peak SPL (half-space loading) and weights only 41 pounds (18.6kg).
The Bose Panaray MSA12X Modular Steerable Array Loudspeakers are scheduled for fall 2017 availability, while the MB210 compact subwoofer is scheduled for fourth-quarter 2017 availability.
Both products will be previewed during InfoComm 2017.
