Current popular powered loudspeakers are standard two-way designs consisting of a single horn-loaded compression driver for high-frequency reproduction and a single woofer for mid- and low-mid-frequency output.

Since the Bose F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker has an array of eight high-output drivers, mid/high-frequency response is much cleaner and less harsh sounding when compared to a traditional horn.

Characteristically, horns have a fixed output pattern that isn’t adaptable to typical performance spaces. These fixed-pattern loudspeakers are commonly positioned on pole mount stands where high-frequency content is projected over listeners’ heads, making vocal intelligibility difficult.

The Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array is quite useful for quickly and easily adjusting the loudspeaker’s coverage for a variety of performance and listening spaces, ensuring quality reproduction without the need for complex placement.

The eight drivers on the F1 Model 812 Flexible Array are mounted on a specially designed flexible baffle that is hinged in two locations. When the array position is changed, the loudspeaker’s internal EQ automatically changes according to the array’s position: “Straight,” “C,” “J” or “Reverse J.” This allows the loudspeaker to maintain tonal balance no matter which position is used.

Yes. The high-output 12"" woofer is mounted behind the flexible array.

Yes, there is a pole cup on the bottom of the enclosure that accepts common tripod speaker stands.

For best performance, we recommend using the Bose F1 Subwoofer. However, other powered subs can be connected to the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker.

The F1 Subwoofer is a compact bass module designed for use with the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker. Its powerful amplifier and dual drivers produce bass as much as subs nearly double its size.

The F1 subwoofer features:

2 X 10"" high-excursion drivers
1000 watts
2 x input channel with XLR, 1/4"" combo connector
2 x XLR balanced line out
Polarity reverse switch
HPF enable

We recommend 1 sub per F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker. However, you can connect as many as needed.

Yes. Bose L1 Systems can be used in conjunction with the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker as a supplemental fill or stage monitor.

Yes. The F1 System is compatible with the T4S and T8S Mixers.

These mixers are powerful, multichannel audio devices designed for musicians to use Bose portable Pro loudspeaker systems. They include our largest library of ToneMatch presets, proprietary EQ, a complete suite of studio-class effects and processing, and five channel inputs.

The rear panel of the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker is equipped with XLR/TS combo jacks, a ¼"" instrument jack, and stereo RCA inputs. When an external mixer is not used, a wide variety of instruments or sources can be connected directly. Common sources include:

A dynamic microphone
An acoustic instrument with a pickup system
Electronic keyboard
Electric bass guitar
CD or MP3 player

Bags and covers are available as optional accessories.

Bose does not offer any hard shell cases.

Yes. The system can be used inside or outside. However, it must never be exposed to precipitation or extended periods of direct sunlight. In cases of light rain, take precautions to cover the back panel of the loudspeaker. Water must not get into the air inlet slits inside the back I/O panel, handle recess, or front grille.

The system has been tested to operate in temperatures from 32°–122° (0°–50° C), and be stored in temperatures from -22°–158° F (-30°–70° C).

Due to the versatility of the flexible array, the system can be used in a wide range of locations.

Yes. The F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker and F1 Subwoofer are ideal for DJs that want high power and sonic clarity in a portable system. The F1 Subwoofer’s compact design and high capability eliminate the need for transporting subwoofers twice its size. Plus, the integrated stand eliminates ugly tripod bases that expose hanging wires and create tripping hazards.

Yes. When an external mixer is not in use, an acoustic instrument equipped with a pickup system may connect directly into the F1 Model 812 System.

The F1 Model 812 and F1 Subwoofer both carry a two-year limited warranty on electronics and a five-year warranty on transducers. Both warranties are transferable with the product even if the ownership changes.

Quality performance

Engineered with a flexible array of eight high-output mid/high drivers, a high-powered 12-inch woofer, a lower crossover point and 1,000 watt amplifier, the loudspeaker delivers high SPL performance while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity that’s dramatically better than conventional loudspeakers.

How it works

The eight drivers on the F1 Model 812 Flexible Array loudspeaker are mounted on a specially designed flexible baffle. Simply push or pull the array into position to create four vertical coverage patterns: “Straight,” ”J,” “Reverse J” or “C.” Once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each unique coverage pattern.

For extended bass

When you need more powerful bass, simply add the Bose F1 Subwoofer. It packs all the power of a larger bass box into a more compact design that’s easier to carry and fits in a car. A mounting stand for the 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.

The loudspeaker and subwoofer each have 1,000 watts of power, so you can fill nearly any venue with sound.

Easy travel

And now getting there is easier, too. The loudspeaker and subwoofer feature strategically placed handles for easy transportation and highly durable, lightweight composite enclosures to ensure easy transport.

Ratings and Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s Bose The only downfall of this product is when I opened it. The grill was slightly dented on one side and one of the corners. Unfortunately, I could not wait to return it. Exchange it and do all that so I kept it. But I absolutely love Bose so I’ll deal with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Unit I purchased two of these units and found them to be fantastic, well made and great sound. I tried many other speakers but Bose is the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Performer I hail from a largely unknown island nation (Republic of Kiribati) in the Central Pacific. I ordered 2 of this, together with 2 F1 subwoofers, in early 2016 from my supplier in Sydney, Australia. I already owned a pair of JBL PRX635s with two Cerwin-Vega P1800SX subwoofers which still run together as a system. This older system compared with the F1 Model is rivaled in loudness despite the smaller size of the Bose and is beaten in clarity flat out - no comparison really! This Bose product is simply fantastic! Its unique design, ease of transport and deployment (none like it in the country as yet, not bragging!) still amaze my friends and customers. Simply the best sound in town at the moment! Worth the price tag, highly recommended!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible This is the best Bose speaker so far, when matched with the Tonematch engine. The clarity and depth is beyond belief. you have to set up the tonematch right to get the best out of it.
