Bose Professional introduces the new EdgeMax™ in-ceiling premium loudspeakers featuring Bose PhaseGuide technology.

PhaseGuide technology combines coverage patterns typical of larger surface-mount speakers with the architect-preferred aesthetics of in-ceiling speaker models, to create a unique asymmetrical vertical pattern for high-frequency, room-filling sound. Designed for perimeter mounting near wall-ceiling boundaries, the EdgeMax speakers provide high-quality audio and coverage in rooms up to 65 feet (20 m) wide with a reduction in the number of required speakers. Bose EdgeMax in-ceiling loudspeakers are available in two horizontal coverage pattern models – EM90 and EM180.
