Our take on the Bose® Panaray® 402® Series IV by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Improve sound indoors and out with Bose® Panaray® 402® speakers
The Panaray® 402® Series IV speaker offers a creative approach to sound reinforcement for indoor and outdoor business spaces. The 8-ohm speaker features four 4-1/2" full-range drivers with no built-in crossovers. This design helps them cut through ambient noise to provide excellent vocal clarity. Bose's proprietary Articulated Array® driver layout ensures even coverage over a wide area.
Active EQ required
Bose recommends active equalization for optimum speaker performance. The ControlSpace® SP 24 processor and several compatible Bose Professional amplifiers offer preset EQ curves for the Panaray 402 and other Bose speakers.
Plenty of mounting options
Bose offers several optional mounts that let you use these space-saving speakers where you need coverage most. There are indoor-only and weather-resistant versions of the convenient pan and tilt wall-mounting bracket. If your venue has high ceilings, the sturdy SB-4 flying bracket lets you securely suspend your speaker from above.

Overview: The Bose Panaray 402 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 four 4.5" full-range drivers arranged in Bose's proprietary Articulated Array design, offering wide coverage area with 120˚ of horizontal and 60˚ of vertical coverage. Other features include a peak SPL of 119 dB, ideal for sound-reinforcement and foreground music, and a frequency range from 75 Hz to 15 kHz, eliminating the need for subwoofers for moderate full-range music levels.
Mounting: The Panaray 402 includes seven M8 threaded inserts on the speaker enclosure, 4 on the back, 2 on bottom, and 1 on top, which can work with Bose's flying bracket, for suspending the speaker, or either of their pan-and-tilt brackets for indoors or outdoors.
Connections: The rear of the Panaray 402 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 402's four 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.
