The new Series IV Panaray 802 and 402 loudspeakers.

For Immediate Release

Bose® Professional Updates Legendary Panaray®
802® and 402® Loudspeakers as Series IV

New Updates to Facilitate Simple and Versatile Mounting

Framingham, MA, November 19, 2015Bose® Professional announces updates to the popular Panaray® 802® and Panaray 402® sound-reinforcement loudspeakers — now known as the new Panaray “Series IV” models.

In the 25 years following their original introduction, the Panaray 802 and 402 loudspeakers achieved an iconic status among A/V System Integrators, Design Consultants and Installers. The Series IV models build upon that legacy, retaining the features and performance that made their predecessors popular. Both Series IV models have been updated with new installation options to further facilitate simple and versatile mounting. Refinements to both models better suit indoor and outdoor installed applications.

All Bose Professional Panaray installed sound-reinforcement loudspeakers feature full-range driver arrays, eliminating the need for tweeters and crossovers, to provide unsurpassed reliability and natural vocal clarity. Additionally, a Bose Articulated Array™ design – where drivers are set at precise angles to provide wide, even coverage - can reduce the number of loudspeakers required for many installations.

The small, lightweight Panaray 802 Series IV loudspeaker features a wide 120°V x 100°H Articulated Array design, while the 52 Hz low-frequency response can eliminate the need for subwoofers, providing a cost-effective solution for many indoor and outdoor installed sound-reinforcement applications. The new Series IV model adds new side threaded inserts and optional accessory U-Bracket to make installations simple, fast, and cost effective. The Panaray 802 Series IV comes in a black finish, measures 13.3" x 20.5" x 13.2" (338 x 520 x 335 mm) and weighs 30 lbs (13.6 kg).

The smaller Panaray 402 Series IV indoor/outdoor installed sound-reinforcement loudspeaker features a wide 120°V x 60°H Bose Articulated Array design, while the 73 Hz low- frequency response covers the entire vocal range to provide an even further cost-effective installed sound-reinforcement solution. The new Series IV model adds new rear threaded inserts with industry-standard mounting to accommodate optional pan-and-tilt brackets to enhance installation flexibility. The Panaray 402 Series IV comes in black and white finishes, measures 23.3" x 8.1" x 8.0" (592 x 206 x 202 mm) and weighs 16 lbs. (7.3 kg)

Other models in the Bose Panaray loudspeaker line, such as the Panaray 502A, Panaray MA12 and Panaray MA12EX, remain unchanged.

The Panaray 802 Series IV loudspeaker is available now, while the Panaray 402 Series IV is scheduled to be available in early 2016. Visit pro.bose.com for more information.
