The Bose PM8500N Configurable Power Amplifier features eight channels, a power output of 4000W, QuadBridge Technology, ControlSpace Designer Software, and an auto-standby/wake function. The Bose PowerMatch PM8500 offers concert-quality sound with plenty of scalability and configurability for fixed installations.
With QuadBridge Technology, this amplifier allows each four-channel loudspeaker block to be configured as Mono, V-Bridge, I-Share or Quad modes, allowing the total available power of the amplifier block to be allocated to one or more output channels. The amplifier is capable of driving both low impedance and 70/100V loudspeaker loads directly.
PowerMatch amplifiers can be configured using ControlSpace Designer software via the onboard front panel USB connection. Using ControlSpace Designer software you can access additional features including Parametric EQ stages, load sweep of each output channel and auto standby. A proprietary design combines class-D efficiency with a unique current and voltage feedback loop circuit that continuously monitors and controls both the current and voltage delivered to the loudspeaker load.
