Loudspeakers
Bose® FreeSpace® DS 16S and FreeSpace DS 16SE
loudspeakers are high-performance, surfacemount loudspeakers designed for background
music and speech reproduction in a wide range
of commercial applications including retail,
restaurant and hospitality establishments.
These 16-watt loudspeakers can provide
coverage both indoors (DS 16S) and outdoors
(DS 16SE). Horizontal or vertical mounting
options offer installation flexibility. The DS 16S
and DS 16SE loudspeakers meet numerous
standards for combination music and evacuation
systems around the world when used with the
optional junction boxes.
Product Information
FreeSpace DS 16S and DS 16SE surface-mount
loudspeakers are engineered for installation
on walls or other solid surfaces. Simple 1➞2➞3
installation: (1) Wire and attach the wall bracket
(2) Secure the loudspeaker to the wall bracket
with one screw (3) Snap the wire connector into
the wall bracket. The included bracket allows for
horizontal or vertical mounting positions, each
with either pitch or yaw adjustment.
The DS 16S and DS 16SE loudspeakers can
be used as 8-ohm, 16-watt loudspeakers
or 70/100V loudspeakers. An easy-to-access
thumbwheel allows taps to be set quickly
and simply without the use of tools.
Performance of the FreeSpace DS 16S and DS 16SE
loudspeakers can be maximized through the use of
the recommended Bose loudspeaker equalization
resident in select Bose electronics or by using
other equipment with parametric equalization.
The loudspeakers can be used out of the box with
an 80-Hz high-pass filter when recommended
loudspeaker equalization is not used.

Design Recommendations
When creating a design that uses the FreeSpace®
DS 16S and DS 16SE loudspeakers, you should
consider the following:
• The FreeSpace DS 16S and DS 16SE loudspeakers
are engineered for background music applications. For foreground music applications,
you should consider FreeSpace DS 100SE
loudspeakers.
• Recommended mounting height is between
8 and 20ft (2.4 and 6.1m).
Total system sound pressure level varies based
on the mounting height, loudspeaker tap and
room acoustics. For typical applications, use
the chart below to determine the total sound
pressure level that will be achieved using the
DS 16S and DS 16SE loudspeakers.
DS 16S | DS 16SE
Mount
Height
• Provide at least 20ft (6.1m) of space between
adjacent loudspeakers for typical applications.
• Generally, the FreeSpace DS 16S and DS 16SE
loudspeakers should be pitched downward
between 5 and 30 degrees.
• Always add 25% headroom to your amplifier to
accommodate various types of program material.
• Maximum SPL for a typical application is
between 85 and 90 dB-SPL.

of 8 ohms and shall be wired in parallel with a
line voltage matching (step-down) transformer
with a level selector appropriate for various
output taps. The loudspeaker input connections
will allow for direct connection to either 70V,
100V or low-impedance amplifiers.
Exposed cosmetic surfaces of the loudspeakers
shall be paintable, and the acoustically transparent
grille component shall be formed of powdercoated steel.
Each loudspeaker shall have a bandwidth of
90 Hz – 16 kHz and a maximum acoustic output
of 96 dB-SPL referenced to a full-bandwidth
pink noise input at 1 meter at the loudspeaker’s
rated power. The input connection shall consist
of a three-position barrier connector on the
included mounting bracket. Each loudspeaker
shall be wired to the mounting bracket via a
four-pin, pre-wired connector.
Power settings available shall be: 1W, 2W, 4W,
8W, 16W @ 70V; 2W, 4W, 8W, 16W @ 100V; and

How our Loudspeakers are
Measured
1. Power handling
Full-bandwidth pink noise, meeting the IEC
Standard #268-5, is applied to the loudspeaker
and 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.
2. Sensitivity
Full-bandwidth pink noise is applied to the loudspeaker with its active equalization curve and
amplified to a level at the loudspeaker terminals
corresponding to 1 watt as referenced to the
nominal impedance. The average sound pressure
level (dB-SPL) is measured at 1 meter from the
speaker in an anechoic environment.
3. Maximum SPL
Full-bandwidth pink noise is applied to the loudspeaker with its active equalization curve and
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
from the speaker in an anechoic environment.
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
Product Codes
4. Frequency range
Sine waves are injected into the loudspeaker, and
the level is adjusted to 1 watt, as referenced to
the nominal impedance, and the level measured
at 1 meter. Resulting graph is smoothed by 0.05
octave-band.
