Overview

Get the F1 Model 812 Line Array speaker system and the F1 powered subwoofer together in one package.

F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker
The BOSE F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker is the first powered portable loudspeaker that lets you control its vertical coverage pattern. Simply push or pull the array into position to create œStraight, œC, œJ or œReverse J coverage patterns. And once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern. So whether youre playing at floor level, on a stage, or facing raked seats or bleachers, you can now adapt your PA to match the room.

F1 Powered Subwoofer
With 1,000 watts of power, the BOSE F1 Subwoofer packs all the performance of a larger bass box into a more compact design thats eas to carry and fits in most cars. A mounting stand for the BOSE F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker is integrated right into the body of the subwoofer, so you always know where it is, making setup fast and easy. The stand even includes cable channels to neatly hide the wires, giving your system a clean, professional look. And now getting your unit to the venue is easier, too. The F1 Subwoofer features strategically placed handles for easy transport.

Comments about Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker and Subwoofer:

I have been in a hobby level rock cover band for 20 years. In the college years, we had our own PA. As members got older and spread out in adulthood, we sold off our PA and have been hiring out our sound reinforcement for our occasional bar gigs and town festival stuff that we do. We got tired of paying out so much for someone to run sound. We also don't like hauling in cart loads of gear to get a full, powerful sound. So one day I happened to hear a band off in the distance at an outdoor event that sounded rich and full. As I neared the band, I discovered their sound was coming from these two tiny Bose F1 stacks. I had never had any real experience with Bose, except for remembering the "wave radios" back in the 90's. I have also heard the L1 system at several small performances by acoustic players and have been impressed with those setups as well. So I was pretty blown away at the sound that was coming from the small F1. It was every bit as good as the 18" subs and two 15" w/ horn cabs that we were typically used to using. So, we purchased two 812's and two matching subs. We have been using them for about 9 months now. Our PA is literally let up in less than 5 minutes. One person can make two trips to the trailer and have them inside. We are a 5 piece rock band with loud drums and Marshall amps. These things are great for the bars and small outdoor gigs that we do. Only after purchasing these did I realize there was this "Bose hater or Bose fanboy" ideology in the sound industry. So my opinion is unbiased to the "Bose" pre-judgments. I know what I hear as a part time musician/singer that likes rich full sound, with tight powerful bass and extreme ease of setup. My only complaint is the cost. Wow, they seem to be expensive, especially when compared to the mountain of cheaper gear that could be purchased for the same money. But you must hear these things in person to believe the sound that comes from such a small package.

    Comments about Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker and Subwoofer:

    Full disclosure: I spent more than I was planning after hearing this in the store. It was bugging me for a couple days (i needed to wait on delivery), thought "you dummy, you got it because they played it so loud in the store." Got it set up .... sound quality is beyond description. It is fantabulous. Incredible. Mind Blowing. Getting the picture?
