Brought to you by Bose, the Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker delivers 1,000 watts of high-impact sound customized to your space. At its core is Bose's groundbreaking Flexible Array technology, which lets you manually adjust the speaker array into C, J, Reverse J, or straight-on coverage patterns to focus sound where your audience needs it most. Whether you're playing a packed club, serenading an intimate crowd, or rocking an outdoor festival stage, the F1 Model 812 ensures your performance is heard with pristine clarity.

Bose Flexible Array Technology: Sound That Adapts to You

Flexible Array technology gives you complete control over the F1 Model 812's vertical coverage. Simply adjust the eight-driver speaker array into your desired pattern—C, J, Reverse J, or straight-on—and the system automatically optimizes the EQ to preserve tonal balance. Now your sound system can match the layout of any venue, from floor-level stages to balconies to uneven or raked seating. Flexible Array technology puts the power to shape your sound in your hands.

Massive Power, Compact Design

Despite its svelte, portable profile, the F1 Model 812 cranks out a whopping 1,000 watts of clear, full-range sound. At its heart thumps a robust 12" woofer, supported by an array of eight high-output drivers and a lower crossover point than standard PAs. The result is natural, detailed vocals and instrumentation with chest-thumping bass. For extended low-end, pair the F1 Model 812 with the optional Bose F1 Subwoofer, which packs the power of a larger bass box into a more compact, portable design.

Road-Ready and Built to Last

The F1 Model 812's rugged enclosure is constructed to endure the rigors of travel and live performance. Integrated handles, wheels, and cable channels simplify transport, setup, and breakdown. Designed for musicians, DJs, A/V professionals, houses of worship, schools, and mobile presenters, the F1 Model 812 delivers high-impact, high-fidelity sound in a portable package built to go wherever your performance takes you.

Premium Bose Quality

For over 50 years, Bose has pioneered innovative audio technologies to deliver premium sound to venues large and small. The F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker continues this tradition, leveraging Bose's industry-leading transducer, amplifier, and digital signal processing designs to give your audience an immersive sonic experience they won't soon forget.
