Bose Corporation Key Developments

Bose Introduces PanaraySound System for the 2016 Cadillac CT6

Bose introduced its most advanced and highest-performing automotive sound system since then -- the Bose® Panaray® system, designed exclusively for Cadillac’s CT6 sedan. The 2016 CT6 is a first in its segment, combining the prestige and technology of a range-topping vehicle with the dynamics and efficiency of a smaller one. Its Panaray system marks the global debut offering of Bose Automotive’s new line of ‘Advanced Technology Series’ sound systems, and integrates technologies and design elements from Bose home entertainment and professional audio products to deliver unprecedented performance in a car. The Bose Panaray system reproduces music with more clarity, precision, and deep bass than any other system preceding it. It combines advanced, proprietary Bose digital signal processing with 34 speakers -- nearly all measuring less than 4 inches (100mm) in diameter -- strategically positioned throughout the Cadillac CT6 cabin. The center IP array includes a cluster of three 2-inch (50mm) speakers housed in a first-of-its-kind motorized centerfill enclosure that rises out of the dashboard when the Panaray system is activated for remarkably precise music reproduction up-front, complemented by a 4-inch (100mm) speaker in each corner of the IP. The rear-center array includes a pair of 2-inch (50mm) speakers for optimal sound imaging in back. Powerful New Bass Box Designs to Minimize Vibration. The Bose Panaray system delivers powerful bass performance without distortion, rattle, or unwanted vibration inside the CT6 cabin, even at the high volume settings. Several compact high-excursion woofers - the same kind found in Bose home entertainment systems - were combined with a new bass box design that produces the low-note output of a much larger enclosure. Two Bose PowerProfileTM Low Frequency Enclosures, custom-engineered exclusively for the Cadillac CT6, are built into the floor under the driver and front passenger seats. Bose PowerProfile enclosures measure just over 3.5 inches (9.25 cm) high, and contain four 2.75-inch (70mm) speakers mounted side-by-side and back-to-back to maximize the distribution of low frequencies without shaking and buzzing. Additional Panaray system bass sources include 4-inch (100mm) speakers in each front and rear door -- housed in ported enclosures -- and an upgraded 10-inch high-power Nd® woofer mounted on the CT6 rear shelf between a pair of 2.5-inch (60mm) rear-fill speakers.

Bose to Shut Monaghan Plant, 140 Jobs Go; to Transfer its Operations to the Far East

Bose reported it is to close its factory in Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan, with the loss of around 140 jobs. The plants operations will transfer to the Far East as part of a global rationalization and cost-saving plan by the group.

Bose Corporation to Close its Columbia Operations and Eliminate 300 Positions

Bose Corporation will close its Columbia operations this fall and eliminate all 300 positions at the plant. The closing is part of an effort by the company to streamline its global supply chain, and will also include closing the company's Carrickmacross, Ireland facility. Operations at the South Carolina plant will cease in September while operations at the Ireland facility will cease in April 2015. In the meantime, work will slowly wind down in both facilities.
