DM8S Foreground Loudspeaker at EMI Audio

DesignMax DM8S loudspeaker delivers powerful SPL suitable for foreground music

— along with premium aesthetics that complement any commercial sound installation.

The DM8s features a two-way, 8-inch woofer and a center-firing coaxial 1-inch compression driver, delivering a 52 Hz – 20 kHz frequency range.

The DM8S is surface-mounted and locks onto a hidden QuickHold U-bracket for fast, secure installation.



Combine DesignMax models to complete any design, big or small — 12 loudspeakers to mix and match, from 2-inch, low-profile models to 8-inch, high-SPL compression-driver loudspeakers and outdoor-rated options

Deliver rich lows and clear, intelligible highs with coaxial two-way drivers — no DSP or EQ required. For even better sound, use select Bose DSPs and amplifiers to enable Bose loudspeaker EQ and SmartBass processing, which expands performance and response at any listening level

Blend with any room design with elegant form factors, minimum-bezel grilles available in black or white, and removable logos

Reduce installation time with the patented QuickHold mounting system, which also reduces strain, hassle, and the chance of product damage

Install easily with industry-standard accessories — all models include Euroblock connectors; in-ceiling models include plenum-rated backcans, tile bridges, and front-access audio wiring that makes installation and troubleshooting easier
