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.

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

- Featuring eight high-output drivers, a 12" high-powered woofer and a lower crossover point, the flexible array delivers dramatically better vocal and midrange clarity.

"Awesome "
Overall: All I can say is wow!!!! I have ran all QSC powered including KW 181 and 152. I have Han two of the Bose L1 model 2 b2 subs and they did sound good but when I heard this dude it blew me away. I just bought one F1 will be adding another one. then I add the subs they are loud and smooth. The 12 inch bass sound good at low volume but when you turn it to 12 o'clock the bass is still deep and rich. Get one more, you may not need subs but I love it you will feel it in your chest!!!!!!!

"Probably the BEST speaker in this genre!"
Overall: I'm a singer songwriter that does solo acoustic gigs with tracks, My go to was the L1 for the past two years, i needed more low end, had QSC K10, which made me realize i needed more bottom end for my tracks, I wasnt so happy about the QSC. i ordered this F1 812 a couple of times, and cancelled the order, thinking its a front of house speaker, not a L1 behind the performer...welll. i'm here to tell you, Thats how i use it now, behind me about 2-3 feet, I've had it for a week, and every venue i've played in, i've had other musicians come up to see what the heck was coming out behind me, it sounded perfect, it had low end, it had high end, it sounded like there was a speaker at someones table 80ft away, and doing that without blowing the front tables next to stage out. This is an amazing speaker, I love it, NOW i want another one, I dont need the sub, but will probably get it for even bigger and better situations. As one musician said to me, you've now stepped up your game, you sound so pro now. (this guy always says negative things, never compliments), The only negative is, they did not provide a slip cover for this, and after 2 uses it had scratches on the cabinet...not cool Bose, 1200 bucks and you cant provide a little bit of nylon wrap to protect it????? But now i have to pay $139 in Jan 2016 to get one...
