Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Speaker

The Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker is the first powered loudspeaker that delivers the benefits of an adjustable line array in a portable package. Its unique flexible baffle allows users to tailor the loudspeaker's vertical coverage to a wide variety of listening environments. The array is easily pushed or pulled into position to create "Straight," "C," "J" or "Reverse J" coverage patterns. Once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern. So whether the loudspeaker is at floor level, on a stage or facing raked seats or bleachers, the PA can be adapted to match the room.

See how easy it is to set up the Bose F1 Model 812 and F1 Subwoofer:


Engineered with an array of eight high-output drivers, a high-powered 12" woofer and a lower crossover point, the loudspeaker delivers high SPL performance while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity that's dramatically better than conventional loudspeakers.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Review of the Bose F1 812 flexible array speaker"
Overall: Okay..got ..ordered this from ZZounds last week..it arrived in 24 hrs and I didn't even ask for rush delivery..got it out of the box..it worked ..Played a gig with it last night...I only had funds for the 812 speaker..want to get the sub to go with it because I heard it in a local music store and it is awesome..With that said, last night I used it on a speaker stand with my L1 B2 base on the other side...ran a line from my tone match to the 812...was playing with a small group..we do jazz & R&B..this thing impressed me..I was totally in awe of the sound...granted I had the sub on the L1 B2, but the 812 speaker itself was more than enough to fill the room, which had a capacity of about 300 people....Many compliments on the sound from the folks in the crowd as well as the other musicians...I'm really glad I got this thing..if you need there extra head room for your performances this thing will do the job just fine..Add the sub and you'll REALLY get big sound, but for a good quality full rand PA, the 812 is very impressive...In full disclosure, as I mentioned, I did use my Bose Tone match mixer, which I'm sure contributed to the quality of the sound, but obviously any mixer would work and probably sound just as good..the Tone Match is just what I prefer to use..
Style of Music: Smooth Jazz, R&B

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Full Circle back to BOSE"
Overall: Really impressed by the full sound and the sharp vocals, This speaker truly reproduces the sound of the music, I have not cranked these up yet and nor will I likely, these speakers are ideal for a small venue such as a wedding, or church service, I was most impressed by the dynamics of this speaker at low volumes, and when I turned it up, it was remarkable that the sound was loud and absolutely smooth. When I started as a DJ I started with the BOSE 901's and then the 802's Music evolved and I went to folded horn designs from Klipsh, JBL, and Peavey, as horn speakers got smaller I have been favoring Peavey, and recently I have switched to powered speakers by EV, wanting to expand upon this I ventured back to Bose, and just as the BOSE 901's excited me all those years ago, I find myself once again elated by the sound of the BOSE F! 812!!!
Style of Music: Yep, all of them!!!
