RoomMatch® RM5505
array module loudspeaker
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
Key Features
• Concert-quality sound – New Bose® patented technologies combine to
provide audio quality equaling that of the best concert-sound systems, in
a fixed-installation format
• RoomMatch® waveguide technology – 5 vertical and 4 horizontal
coverage pattern choices allow arrays to direct sound precisely to
desired listening areas, improving audio quality by reducing unwanted
acoustic reflections
• Progressive directivity arrays – A new class of curvilinear array in
which the coverage and directivity index of each module is selected to
optimize room coverage and system efficiency
• Continuous-arc diffraction-slot (CADS) manifold – Proprietary Bose
design provides interference-free acoustic summation of 6 compression
drivers and acoustically equal spacing of diffraction slots across multiple
modules
• Bose EMB2 and LF10 drivers – Patented new Bose transducers
combine to deliver the vocal clarity of 3-way systems with the improved
polar response typical of 2-way systems
Product Overview
RoomMatch® RM5505 array module delivers superb audio quality for fixed-installations in almost any room size, shape, acoustic
requirement or budget. Overcoming the acoustic limitations of both line array and point-source conventional designs, RoomMatch®
modules form a new class of curvilinear array that allows seamless audio quality, with consistent front-to-back and side-to-side tonal
balance.

RoomMatch® RM5505
array module loudspeaker
The 2-way, full-range array module loudspeaker shall contain
six (6) 2-inch titanium-diaphragm compression drivers mounted
to a continuous-arc diffraction-slot manifold. The manifold will
provide acoustic summation that is free from significant peaks
or dips in response, from 500 Hz to 16 kHz, and exit into a
constant-directivity waveguide with effective pattern control to
approximately 1 kHz. The low-frequency section shall contain
two (2) 10-inch cone transducers with 3-inch voice coils, with
each woofer contained in a separate vented enclosure. The array
module will require external, active digital signal processing for
transducer crossover and frequency response equalization.
The array module loudspeaker shall meet the following
performance specifications: On-axis system frequency response
shall be 60 Hz to 16 kHz (+/- 3 dB) with recommended crossover
and active equalization. The low-frequency sensitivity shall be 93
dB SPL in free field with 1 W input and be capable of producing
peak output of 126 dB SPL on axis at 1 meter, with recommended
equalization. The high-frequency sensitivity shall be 108 dB SPL
in free field with 1 W input and be capable of producing peak
output of 136 dB SPL on axis at 1 meter, with recommended
equalization. The low-frequency section shall have a long-term
power handling rating of 500 W and a nominal input impedance
of 4 ohms. The high-frequency section shall have a long-term
power handling rating of 150 W and a nominal input impedance of
8 ohms. Power handling will be rated using IEC 268-5 pink noise,
6-dB crest factor, for 100 hours, with recommended EQ. The
nominal coverage pattern shall be 55° horizontal and 05° vertical.

grilles with powder-coated finish. Input connectors shall be two (2)
parallel-wired Neutrik® NL4 Speakon® connectors. The finish will
be black (paintable).
Loudspeaker dimensions shall be 16.9 x 39.1 x 23.6 in (428 x 993
x 598 mm) and net weight shall be 123 lb (55.8 kg).
The 2-way, full-range array module loudspeaker shall be the
Bose® RoomMatch® RM5505.
