Bose Adds Four New Pendants To DesignMax Loudspeaker Line

by | Apr 29, 2021 | Audio, Gear, News, Production

Bose Professional has added four new pendant loudspeakers — the DM3P and DM5P, the outdoor-rated DM6PE and the DM10P-SUB subwoofer — to its DesignMax line. All have a recessed single-point suspension system to enable hardware to be kept out of sight and a service loop to be held and hidden for convenient access in the future.

First introduced in 2019, the DesignMax family includes coaxial two-way loudspeakers and subwoofers with in-ceiling and surface-mount models available in addition to higher SPL compression-driver options, compact models for tight spaces and various IP55-rated outdoor options. They can also be paired with select Bose DSPs and amplifiers to enable Bose loudspeaker EQ and SmartBass processing.

“Our latest additions to the DesignMax family deliver instantly impressive performance alongside the adaptability and style needed to blend into, and enhance, a variety of indoor and outdoor commercial spaces,” says Andy Kyte, product manager for Installed Sound for Bose Professional. “From concept and design to installation and operation, these four new models have the features, aesthetics and flexibility to deliver easy installation and great performance — making every phase of a project more successful and leaving guests and clients more than satisfied with everything they hear and see.”


The DM3P, DM5P and DM6PE pendant loudspeakers all feature the Bose Dispersion Alignment system. This system is designed to help provide a consistent listening experience throughout the space by matching the coverage of the woofer to the pattern of the tweeter.

The DM3P pendant loudspeaker has a 3.25-inch woofer and 0.75-inch coaxial tweeter, with a stated frequency range of 75 Hz to 20 kHz. The DM5P pendant loudspeaker has a 5.25-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter, with a stated frequency range of 65 Hz to 20 kHz. The DM6PE is IP55 outdoor-rated, equipped with a 6.5-inch woofer and 1.25-inch tweeter, with a frequency range of 62 Hz to 20 kHz. The DM10P-SUB subwoofer incorporates a 10-inch woofer and has a 40 Hz to 125 Hz statedfrequency range.

Additional Specs

With the addition of these four pendant models, system designers and installers can now choose from a total of 16 DesignMax products to curate complete, tailored solutions for background and foreground audio applications. Installation of every model is designed to be simple, with industry-standard accessories and Euroblock connectors and in-ceiling models that include plenum-rated backcans, tile bridges and front-access audio wiring.

Every member of the DesignMax loudspeaker family has minimum-bezel grilles, removable logos and a design intended to allow users to blend the product to any décor. Each loudspeaker is available in black or white and is paintable. The DM3P and DM5P are available to ship in most regions. DM6PE and DM10-SUB availability to follow.
