The Bose RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format sound-reinforcement loudspeaker.

Bose Professional Systems Division in Framingham, Mass., is now shipping the RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format sound-reinforcement loudspeaker (price TBA). The RMU208 is designed for use in high-quality foreground music, under-balcony, zone fill and vocal-range floor monitor applications in performing arts centers, civic auditoriums, houses of worship, secondary education and college auditoriums, dance clubs, hospitality and more.

The loudspeaker features a single Bose EMB2 compression driver (with 2-inch voice coil) to provide mid/high-frequency voicing similar to the RoomMatch full-range array modules. The EMB2 driver features a patented phase plug that lowers distortion and allows the use of a lower crossover frequency to improve vocal sound quality.

Dual Bose LF8 8-inch woofers (with 2-inch, extended-excursion voice coils) promise full-range output down to 80 Hz (+/-3 dB), and a 90x 60-degree constant-directivity high-frequency horn is siad to provide wide, even coverage and may be rotated 90 degrees in the enclosure.

The RMU208’s Quasi-3-way passive crossover with separate filters for each transducer provides uniform frequency and polar response; the 80 to 16,000Hz frequency response and 126 dB maximum peak SPL allow for use in high-performance system designs. Long-term continuous power handling is 400 watts and peak power handling is 1,600 W.

The enclosure is constructed of baltic birch plywood with a 2-part polyurethane coating to resist scratches and scuffs. The multi-angle cabinet design allows for flexible use in varied applications, and the system includes a U-bracket and four additional M8 threaded inserts on the enclosure’s rear surface provide additional mounting flexibility.

The new RoomMatch Utility RMU208 small-format loudspeaker can be powered by Bose PowerMatch amplifiers, or any professional amplifier with the appropriate power rating.

The RMU208 loudspeaker is now available through authorized Bose dealers.
