Actually, if you compare any of their systems like for like with any other designer I think you'll find bose wins
No they don't I'm afraid. It does impress me how much bass they get from tiny boxes but bigger is better. Alton Towers would be better using speakers from JBL and they would probably be cheaper to.
Yes they are, and how much bass you can squeeze out of a cab doesnt come really into the equation. If they wanted even more bass from a small cab all they need to do is stick a port in. But thats not the intended purpose. I agree JBL would be a good choice if they needed an alternative but they wont use huge full range cabs because they dont need to. They'll use evironmental speakers just the same as the Bose ones and there wont be much difference in sound quality.

the drivers inside them they don't last very long at all the new area wont be bose you see the deferents will probley use HK profeshinal concert speakers.
The drivers probably need replacing because either somebody is caning the system or they are getting damaged from bad weather. Drivers should last donkeys years if they are looked after and its usually the tweeters that go first. LOL @ HK concert speakers, as if thats going to happen - its Mutiny Bay not V Festival! And if they were going to install concert speakers in a concert arena or outdoor stage area then you'd only choose HK if you were on a budget. Funktion One and Martin Audio are the high end stuff. In fact, Funktion One is the mutts nuts these days at a cost of approx half a million for their simple 3 stack units. The quality is unmatched.
As for the frequency range of bose, I'd bet you my life that they go up to at least 16khz which is far enough for the high range, though the environmental speakers may be slightly lower for obvious reasons, and down to 150hz for the low end. Thats all you need, any lower and you need a sub driver to get decent bass and as we've already seen AT are turning off the subs to keep the park quieter because low frequences travel further than highs.
