Bose Professional 802080-0110 DesignMax DM8C 8" 150W In-Ceiling Speaker (Black)

A complete loudspeaker assortment to fulfill any design

DesignMax loudspeakers have the flexibility and style to deliver outstanding audio and aesthetics for any commercial space. With ten loudspeakers and two subwoofers to choose from — including ceiling-mounted, surface-mounted, and outdoor-rated options — it's easy to create tailored DesignMax solutions.

Hear the difference

DesignMax loudspeakers deliver instantly impressive sound, no EQ or DSP required. The Dispersion Alignment system on select models ensures a consistent listening experience throughout the room, matching the coverage pattern of the woofer to the wider performance of the tweeter. And enabling SmartBass processing and loudspeaker EQs via select Bose DSPs and amps delivers even better sound at any listening level.

See the difference

Surface-mounted DesignMax loudspeakers feature hidden U-brackets. This unique design holds the loudspeaker closer to the wall, providing a much cleaner appearance. Sleek, minimum-bezel grilles, removable logos, and attractive styling allow you to blend DesignMax loudspeakers with any décor. Every DesignMax loudspeaker is available with a black or white grille, which is also paintable.

Feel the difference

For installers, patented QuickHold mounting mechanisms on each DesignMax loudspeaker make the job easier, reducing strain and hassle — and saving substantial time. Instead of balancing the loudspeaker in one hand and a tool in the other, you'll now have both hands free.

For ceiling-mounted models, simply push the loudspeaker into the ceiling opening. QuickHold mounting arms spring into place, holding the loudspeaker securely as you finish installing it.

From concept and design to installation and operation, Bose Professional DesignMax loudspeakers have the features, style, and flexibility to make every phase of a project more successful — leaving end users more than satisfied with everything they hear… and see.
