    It's exciting to see a company like Bose really focus on a great sounding PA. I can say the Bose ShowMatch rig is already on my rider.

    FOH Engineer, Kari Jobe & Winter Jam

    You name it, I’ve mixed on it. I like clarity and quick response from drum tones and things like that where it's very present and close up. The tone was there, high and low. I was real happy with that.

  • Jesse Ralph

    FOH Engineer, Legacy Productions

    It's tour-quality sound with a hint of finesse, so it's really smooth. Would I mix on it again? Absolutely.

  • Matt Lampley

    Technical Director, First Baptist Church, Albany GA

    It sounds great, plenty of high end, plenty of beef in the middle. The subs have plenty of punch but also have plenty of low end to carry the whole sound to balance it out, to give you a good even tone all the way across.

Technical Highlights

DeltaQ™ array technology
Improves sound quality compared to conventional line-array loudspeakers by providing:
  1. better horizontal coverage control to reduce unwanted wall reflections,
  2. more vertical pattern choices to allow smaller arrays without coverage compromise, and
  3. ability to change directivity or “Q” per array element for more consistent sound quality, with uniform front-to back coverage.
Changeable 70° AND 100° waveguides
Includes both 70° and 100° waveguide panels to adjust horizontal coverage. Largest in class size provides superior coverage control and vocal clarity. Change single panel for asymmetrical patterns. Optional accessory 55° and 120°waveguides. 
Compact, portable enclosure
Versatile design allows both fixed install and portable applications, from small clubs and houses of worship to the largest performing arts centers and corporate AV productions.
Tour-sound output level
4x Bose EMB2S compression drivers, improved with more HF output, combined with 2x 8-inch maximum-performance woofers allow array output levels up to 145 dB SPL.
3-point “quick pin” rigging supports up to 24 boxes
Allows fast, easy setup for permanent installs, corporate AV rental, and medium-size tour-sound applications, with up to 24 full-range modules and 10:1 safety factor.
Removable side rigging-guard/handle
High-strength, impact-resistant assembly provides rigging guards and side handles for portable applications. Easily removed for permanent installs to reduce width from 31.2” to 29.8” (79.2 cm to 75.7 cm) and simplify visual design.
ShowMatch SM5 module rigging adjusts for longer “throw”
5° vertical modules allow adjustment of coverage overlap from 0 to 5 degrees to provide longer throw distance for large arrays.
