Class-D Installation Amplifier That Delivers Performance with Efficiency, Reliability and Versatility

Bose's PowerMatch PM8500N (BSE-PM8500N) Power Amplifier configurable professional power amplifier provides concert-quality sound with a high level of scalability and configurability for fixed installation sound reinforcement systems. Ethernet-equipped versions enable network configuration, control and monitoring, and an expansion slot supports input from optional digital audio accessory cards. PowerMatch amplifiers utilize numerous Bose technologies to deliver an unprecedented combination of performance, efficiency and ease of installation—all in a reliable, proprietary design.


  • Efficiency, Reliability And Versatility.QuadBridge™ Technology – Allows Each 4-Channel Loudspeaker Block To Be Configured As Mono, V-Bridge, I-Share Or Quad Modes
  • Bose® ControlSpace® Designer™ Software – PowerMatch Amplifiers Can Be Fully Configured Using ControlSpace Designer Software Via The Onboard Front Panel USB Connection, Or The Rear Panel Ethernet Connection (Network Models Only)
  • Auto-Standby/Auto-Wake Function – When Enabled, This Function Automatically Enters/Exits Standby Mode, Allowing The System To Consume Less Power.
  • Dual Voltage And Current Feedback Loop – Proprietary Design Combines Class-D Efficiency With A Unique Current And Voltage Feedback Loop Circuit That Continuously Monitors And Controls Both The Current And Voltage Delivered To The Loudspeaker Load.
  • PeakBank™ Power Supply – Regenerative 4-Quadrant Power Supply Enables Higher Power Density While Allowing The Re-Use Of Energy From Reactive Loads That Is Normally Wasted In Conventional Class-D Designs.
  • Fast-tracking power factor correction (PFC) – Efficiently manages the current drawn from the AC mains, allowing the amplifier to drive loudspeakers to maximum output longer without power fluctuation. PFC provides superior transient response and functions at peak burst power much longer than conventional Class-D amplifier designs to satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding program material.
