The Bose PowerMatch® PM8500 is a highly configurable professional power amplifier delivering concert sound quality for fixed-installation sound reinforcement systems. It allows the user to power speakers from one eight-channel amplifier, or multiple amplifiers networked together, and deliver sound to the main worship center, foyers, lobby areas, cry rooms, and other ancillary areas.
Building on the ruggedness proven by 20 years experience building Class D power amplifiers for the automotive market, the PM8500 adds numerous new Bose patented technologies to simultaneously provide class-leading power, efficiency, sound quality and reliability. The PM8500N adds Ethernet connectivity for network control and monitoring of multiple “N” version amplifiers using ControlSpace® Designer. The PowerMatch Amplifier is designed to work with both RoomMatch® array modules and other professional loudspeakers and can allocate its 4000-Watt rated power between two and eight channels, all from a standard wall outlet. The Bose PowerMatch PM8500 Amplifier provides sound designers with unprecedented scalability and configurability for houses of worship and nearly any fixed installation sound system application.
The BOSE PowerMatch® PM8500/8500N Configurable Power Amplifier has been selected as the recipient of a WFX 2012 New Product Technology Award, in the category of “Best Amplifier.” Winners were announced on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, at the WFX convention in Atlanta.
