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-inch 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-inch high-excursion drivers
2 x input channel with XLR, 0.25-inch combo connector
2 x XLR balanced line out
Polarity reverse switch
We recommend one 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 ToneMatch audio engine. The T1 engine is a powerful multichannel audio device designed for musicians to use Bose portable pro loudspeaker systems. It includes 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 0.25-inch 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
Electric bass guitar
CD or MP3 player
Bags and covers are available as optional accessories.
Bose does not offer any hard shell cases.

Bags and covers (Full-range padded bag with zipper; Subwoofer padded bag with zipper; Subwoofer slipcover)
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.
Any single voice, instrument and group size will benefit from both the audience and themselves hearing better, being in complete control of their performance, and setting up in just minutes.
Yes. The F1 Model 812 loudspeaker and F1 sub 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.
