 FRAMINGHAM, Mass., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Bose Corporation today announced that the opening and closing ceremonies of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games will be enjoyed through a spectacular 50,000-watt sound system consisting of more than 150 Bose professional loudspeakers in the 70,000-seat Olympic Stadium of Montjuic.
 Bose Spain was awarded a contract with Ovideo-Bassat-Sport, the production company responsible for the ceremonies, to design and install sound systems for the Summer Olympics as well as the Paraolympic Games of Barcelona '92. The Summer Games begin July 25 and run through Aug. 9. The Paraolympic Games (Special Olympics) are scheduled for Aug. 22 through Sept. 9.
