PowerMatch PM8500N Power Amplifier
The Bose® PowerMatch PM8500N is a highly versatile and configurable professional power amplifier designed for fixed installation sound reinforcement systems. With its Ethernet-based networking capability, the amplifier allows for easy configuration, control, and monitoring, while an expansion slot enables integration of optional digital audio accessory cards for expanded input options. Bose’s cutting-edge technologies, combined with a reliable proprietary design, deliver exceptional performance, efficiency, and ease of installation, making the PowerMatch PM8500N the go-to choice for concert-quality sound in professional audio installations.
The QuadBridge™ Technology allows for flexible configuration of 4-channel loudspeaker blocks, offering different modes such as Mono, V-Bridge, I-Share, and Quad, allowing the allocation of the amplifier’s power to one or more output channels. The amplifier is compatible with both low impedance and 70/100V loudspeaker loads. The Bose® ControlSpace® Designer™ software enables comprehensive configuration of PowerMatch amplifiers via USB or Ethernet connections, providing access to features like Parametric EQ stages, load sweep, and auto standby. The Auto-Standby/Auto-Wake function reduces power consumption by automatically entering and exiting Standby Mode. The amplifier’s proprietary dual voltage and current feedback loop continuously monitors and controls the current and voltage delivered to the loudspeaker load, ensuring optimal performance regardless of power level and load impedance. The PeakBank™ power supply enhances power density and efficiency, recycling energy from reactive loads for improved low-frequency response. The fast-tracking power factor correction (PFC) efficiently manages current draw from the AC mains, allowing the amplifier to drive loudspeakers at maximum output for longer durations without power fluctuations and ensuring superior transient response even with demanding program material.
