Bose® PowerMatch™ 8500/8500N Configurable Power Amplifier Selected for Large-Scale Installation at The Villages Golf Community in Central Florida

The Villages and other projects benefit from the Bose PowerMatch PM8500’s Class-D efficiency and up to 4 kW of pure, clean power

Framingham, Massachusetts, October 18, 2012 – Some projects are inarguably massive. They cover an enormous amount of ground and need the power to deliver music and other critical audio across areas measured in acres instead of square feet. That’s why AV systems integrators are turning to the PowerMatch™ PM8500 from Bose Professional Systems Division . Such is the case with a recent audio systems project where power, reliability and sound quality are critical across very large amounts of space, and the Bose PowerMatch amplifier is proving to be the best choice.

The Villages is a master-planned retirement community located in central Florida about midway between Ocala and Orlando, with a population of over 90,000 residents living on over 26,000 acres. With a focus on golf – boasting 504 holes, on both executive and championship courses, including courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Nancy Lopez. Installing landscape sound for The Villages is a big job – the new downtown area, Brownwood, has 240 light poles, each will have Bose® DS 40SE full-range, surface-mount loudspeakers mounted to them. All of these will be powered by just six Bose PowerMatch™ PM8500/8500N amplifiers, covering an area up to a half-mile in all directions from the town’s central square. In addition to the PowerMatch PM8500, the area also includes Bose Panaray® MA12EX full-range modular line array loudspeakers and MB24 modular bass loudspeakers for the town square’s live stage for music performances, as well as 12 Bose ControlSpace® ESP-88/ESP-00 engineered sound processors, digital signal processors to control audio throughout The Villages. Going forward, Bose PowerMatch amplifiers will also be used in a forthcoming movie theater in the downtown area and other applications.

“There’s really no place like it on the planet,” says Steve Brown, Eastern Regional Business Manager, Bose Professional Systems. “And just as The Villages are all about quality of life, they are a whole community built around Bose audio because Bose is all about quality of sound. The Villages are about great golf as far as the eye can see and great sound as far as the ear can hear. It’s an amazing project, and the Bose PowerMatch offers them the ability to power a huge amount of sound over an enormous amount of space and do it cost effectively.”

The Bose PowerMatch PM8500/8500N is a configurable professional power amplifier delivering concert sound quality for fixed installation sound reinforcement systems. Building on the ruggedness proven by 20 years of experience building Class-D power amplifiers for the automotive market, the PM8500/8500N adds numerous new Bose patented technologies to simultaneously provide class-leading power, efficiency, sound quality and reliability.
