Bose® Panaray® MB4
Modular bass loudspeaker (Black)
Our take on the Bose® Panaray® MB4 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
A different approach to bass
Bose has done something intriguing with the Panaray MB4 — instead of generating bass the traditional way, with one or two large woofers, they have four 5-1/4" low-frequency drivers working together. The MB4 produces low notes in the 45 to 310 Hz range. Its modular enclosure is stackable, so you can create a bass array for larger spaces. If you'd rather raise it off the floor to leave more room for dancing, integrated suspension points let you "fly" the MB4 from the rafters.

Overview: The Bose Panaray MB4 is a compact low-frequency loudspeaker designed to provide bass enhancement for Bose Panaray and DS systems in small to medium sized indoor installations, both permanent and portable sound reinforcement. Typical uses would be for gymnasiums, restaurants, recreation centers, houses of worship, and more. The MB4 is comprised of four 5.25" high-excursion woofers configured to provide deep bass down to 35 Hz with a fast transient response.
Configurations: The MB4's modular design allows for flexible mounting options. Four post-in-socket interlocking corners allow multiple speakers to be securely stacked on top of each other. The MB4 also has four M8 threaded inserts, 2 top and 2 bottom, for suspending the speaker in a "flying" rig. The MB4 is designed for indoor use only.
Connections: Two Neutrik (Speakon) connectors are provided on the rear panel, one being the signal input and the other a pass-thru for daisy-chaining multiple speakers.
