Would you approve the construction of a multi-million dollar building before seeing
a model or blueprint of what the finished project will look like? Of course not.
But what about the audio system? Every day building managers make large investments
in sound systems without knowing how they will sound until the building is complete.
Bose has eliminated that risk with our award-winning Auditioner® audio demonstrator
technology. It's most commonly used in custom designing professional audio systems
for large venues like auditoriums, arenas and outdoor stadiums. This proprietary
technology allows people to actually hear how the installed system will sound
in their facility—before construction ever begins.

Listening to a blueprint
The process starts with our exclusive Modeler® computer design program. Bose
engineers enter the building's construction parameters—from room dimensions
and seating angles to flooring materials and reflective surfaces. Then the program
creates an acoustic model of the space. Think of it as a blueprint for sound.
The second phase uses the Auditioner audio demonstrator playback system. Ten years
in development, this advanced technology lets you listen as though you were in
the building—from any seat, any section. Even if the building only exists
as a blueprint.
the acoustical challenge of redesigning the sound system in a structure like the
Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans—over 70,000 seats, 27 stories high, 125
million cubic feet of space. Our unique technology played an integral role in
the arena's new sound system. And everyone knew how it would sound before a single
speaker was installed.
