Product Research


  • The Bose Panaray 802 is a full-range, sound reinforcement loudspeaker for indoor and outdoor installations such as auditoriums, fitness clubs, restaurants, and outdoor venues.
  • The speaker is comprised of eight 4.5" full-range drivers arranged in Bose's proprietary Articulated Array design, offering wide coverage area with 120˚ of horizontal and 100˚ of vertical coverage.
    Other features include a peak SPL of 123 dB, ideal for sound-reinforcement and foreground music, and a low frequency range down to 52Hz, eliminating the need for subwoofers for moderate full-range music levels.


  • The Panaray 802 includes eight M8 threaded inserts on the speaker enclosure, 2 on the back, 2 on bottom, and 2 on each side, which can work with Bose's Flying-bracket, for suspending the speaker, or with their Wall- or U-brackets.


  • The rear of the Panaray 802 includes two Neutrik (Speakon) connectors on the rear panel, one being the input and the other a pass-thru to daisy-chain other speakers.
  • The combined total impedance of the Panaray 802's eight drivers is 8Ω. Bose Panaray speakers require active equalization for optimal sound quality.
  • The recommended equalization is contained in the preset libraries of the Bose PowerMatch configurable amplifiers and ControlSpace processors.
  • Bose also includes an equalization chart in the owner's manual showing which frequencies should be raised or lowered, the amount, and the bandwidth, when EQing the speaker without a Bose amp or processor.
