New Sound Reinforcement Products
BOSE PROFESSIONAL SHOWMATCH DELTAQ LOUDSPEAKERS
Field-Adjustable Waveguides for Portable or Install Apps
The ShowMatch line array from Bose ($ Per Config) features DeltaQ array technology that directs more sound energy to the audience by allowing directivity, or “Q,” to vary with each array module. ShowMatch full-range array loudspeakers are available with 5-degree, 10-degree or 20-degree vertical coverage with class-leading versatility that allows J-array, constant-curvature, or DeltaQ array configurations. The system provides 145dB peak array output levels generated from four Bose EMB2S neodymium compression drivers and two 8-inch neodymium woofers with more usable low-frequency output in smaller arrays. The matching-width 18-inch ShowMatch DeltaQ subwoofer provides low-frequency extension down to 30 Hz. Integrated rigging allows mixed arrays with full-range modules or subwoofer arrays including cardioid and ground-stack configurations.
BASSBOSS SV8 MICROMAIN MONITOR
Small Drivers, Big Powersoft Sound
The SV8 Powered MicroMain ($1,495) features 117 dB of sustained output in satellite mode and maximum output of 120 dB. The 8-inch woofer uses a rubber surround providing excellent edge damping, low distortion and smooth midrange response. The SV8 includes comprehensive DSP built into its 700-watt Powersoft amp, providing four presets designed to maximize utility. The presets allow the speaker to be used either as a full-range system, a satellite for a small subwoofer or as a main speaker with a larger subwoofer. The sturdy all-Baltic birch enclosure features integrated handles and is available in a black touring polymer coating or UV-stable white.

ULTIMATE EARS UE 18+ PRO
High-End IEMs for Studio/Stage The UE 18+ Pro ($1,500) takes the excellence of the original UE 18 Pro (four-way crossover, triple bore and six drivers per monitor), and adds the True Tone drivers, which were originally introduced last year with the UE Pro Reference Remastered. The drivers extend the frequency range by 3 kHz to enhance the upper-band frequency response. An adjusted midrange gain improves presence, altogether bringing a clear yet warm sound. The UE 18+ Pro can be plugged into any audio interface with the 1⁄8-inch headphone jack or included 1⁄4-inch adaptor. Numerous faceplate color options and even custom faceplate designs are available.
