Philips SM40 legacy public address system
Upgrading the Philips SM40 public address system

The Philips SM40 is a legacy public address system, originally manufactured and sold worldwide by Philips Communications and Security Inc (Philips CSI).

In 2002, Robert Bosch GmbH acquired Philips CSI and since that time Bosch have gradually rebranded and developed the Philips CSI product range into the current range of Plena and Praesideo public address systems (see our Bosch websites listed below).

Bosch evergreen policy
While many older Philips products such as the SM40, SM30, SQ40 and SQ45 are no longer manufactured, Bosch's evergreen policy ensures that owners of legacy SM40 products are able to use items from the current Bosch public address range to replace and upgrade their existing SM40 installations.
