Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker

With a 12" woofer and a flexible array of 8 HF drivers you can easily aim to cover the whole room, this PA speaker delivers 1000 watts of clear Bose sound.

The Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker is the first powered portable full-range loudspeaker that lets you control its vertical coverage pattern. Simply push or pull the array into position to create "Straight," "C," "J" or "Reverse J" coverage patterns. And once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern. So whether you're playing at floor level, on a stage, or facing raked seats or bleachers, you can now adapt your PA to match the room.

Front-of-house engineers give their review of the Bose F1 System:

The loudspeaker is engineered with an array of eight high-output mid/high drivers and a high-powered 12" woofer delivering bass down to 43 Hz (-10 dB). A lower crossover point delivers high SPL performance while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity that's dramatically better than conventional loudspeakers.

The loudspeaker is compatible with standard 35mm speaker stands and has 1,000 watts of power, so you can fill nearly any venue with sound.

For the first time, the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker allows you to focus sound where it's needed. So no matter where you perform, your PA has you covered.


- Flex array is a flexible baffle that can be configured into four unique shapes ("Straight," "C," "J" or "Reverse J"), allowing the customer to choose the best possible coverage pattern for the application

The sound is unbelievable. I could use it by itself and get great sound and great bass. But to use it with the F 1 sub is totally amazing
