General description
The BOSE FreeSpace 360P-II loudspeaker is an 80-watt, full-range
environmental loudspeaker with a 360° horizontal dispersion. It is
designed for use with standard amplifiers in a variety of applications,
such as shopping malls, outdoor restaurants, resorts and theme parks.
It offers the following features:
> An environmental 11.4 cm Bose driver with passive equalization,
providing high reliability and high quality sound for outdoor
applications
> A multi-tap line transformer that permits selection of tap settings of
10W, 20W, 40W, or 80W at the 70V or 100V inputs
> Freestanding design that blends with the landscaping and permits
installation either in ground or attached to a horizontal concrete or
wood surface
> Tamper-resistant design

Installation
The FreeSpace 360P-II loudspeakers are complete and ready for
in-ground installation. Mounting each loudspeaker securely on a
horizontal surface requires three #10 (M4) screws, which the installer
must provide. Installation options include in-ground (with up to 40%
of the enclosure buried in earth), or attached to a horizontal surface (a
wooden deck or concrete patio, for example). Product color is green and
blends with most surroundings. Painting is not recommended.
1. Full bandwidth pink noise is amplified to a level at the loudspeaker terminals corresponding to 1 watt as referenced to the nominal impedance. The average sound pressure level (dBSPL) is measured at 1 meter, 30° above the ground plane.
2. Full bandwidth pink noise is amplified to a level at the loudspeaker terminals corresponding to the long-term rated power handling of the speaker. The average sound pressure level
(dB-SPL) is measured at 1 meter, 30° above the ground plane.
3. Full bandwidth noise, meeting the International Electrotechnical Commission Standard #268-5 is amplified to a level at the loudspeaker terminals corresponding to the power
handling of the loudspeaker. The loudspeaker must show no visible damage or measurable loss of performance after 100 hours of continuous testing.

Loudspeaker configuration
The FreeSpace 360P-II loudspeaker is designed for use in a distributed
sound system when used with an amplifier. The loudspeaker is packaged
as one single unit per carton.
Placement
®
> To achieve ± 1.5dB, use 3 m spacing as X, center to center.
> To achieve ± 3.0dB, use 6 m spacing as X, center to center.
> To achieve ± 6.0dB, use 9 m spacing as X, center to center.
Engineers’ and architects’ specifications
The loudspeaker shall be an 80-Watt, ported loudspeaker system
utilizing one 11.4 cm HVC environmental full-range driver mounted in the
underside of the top of the loudspeaker enclosure. The driver shall have a
rated impedance of 4 and shall be wired in parallel with a line voltagematching (stepdown) transformer with taps at 10, 20, 40, or 80 watts.
The loudspeaker shall have a single port vented system, with a maximum
acoustic output of 100dB-SPL from 70kHz to 15kHz, with measurements
referenced with fullbandwidth pink noise at 1 meter at the loudspeaker’s
highest rated power.
The input connection shall consist of wires with wire nuts on a cable
attached to the base of the loudspeaker. Its power handling capability
shall be 10, 20, 40, or 80, watts continuous power when referenced to
IEC noise for 100 hours.
For linear spacing (for bordering side walks, paths or walkways): use the ratios
shown above, keeping the speaker at least 3 ft (1 m) from the listeners.
Safety and regulatory compliance
The BOSE FreeSpace 360P-II loudspeaker is suitable for general purpose
use. It complies with EMC Directive 89/336/EEC and Article 10 (1) of the
Directive in compliance with EN50081-1, EN50082-1, as signified by the
CE mark.
Warranty information
The nominal dispersion of the loudspeaker shall be 360° horizontal and
50° vertical.
The loudspeaker shall be the BOSE FreeSpace 360P-II loudspeaker.
®
The BOSE FreeSpace 360P-II loudspeaker is covered by a 5-year,
transferable limited warranty.
