Product Description

A lot of PA loudspeakers sound great, but have one fatal flaw if you need to take them from venue-to-venue. Certain speakers will project sound in particular directions, which will suit different rooms. For example, if you get yourself a PA system that is designed to be set up at the same level as the audience and you then have to play a venue with tiered seating - it won't sound great!

That is where the innovate design of the Bose F1 Flexible Array system comes in handy. Not only is it a super high-quality 1000w loudspeaker, but it is also the first speaker to have vertical coverage control. This means that you can set the speaker to distribute sound in multiple different patterns, so no matter where the audience is sat, they still get the best sound.

Key Features

  • FLEX array: Bose exclusive flexible baffle can be configured into four unique shapes, allowing you to choose the best possible coverage pattern for the application
  • Eight-driver mid/high line array: Eight vertically mounted drivers, each mounted on a custom waveguide, help deliver wide, consistent coverage
  • 12-inch LF driver: High-performance woofer provides strong low-frequency output
  • 2-channel integrated mixer: 2 inputs with independent level controls accommodate XLR, 0.25-inch and RCA connectors

The Four Positions

The F1 can be setup to have one of four vertical coverage patterns. The 'straight' setting focuses the sound in a straight line, which is great if the speakers are at ear level with the audience. The 'J' setting points the sound down, and you would use this setting for live concerts or stage performances where the audience is sat below the speaker.

'Reverse J' position is what you would use in a tiered seating layout, such as a cinema or a theatre. What if I want to cover everything? Set the F1 to the 'C' position and the sound will travel forward in a wide arc, covering an entire room.

But won't adjusting the layout of the speaker change the sound? It will, but that is why Bose have built in an automatic EQ section that changes the tonal balance of your sound, to compensate for the vertical setting.

The Power Of Many

Bose have a unique way of looking at PA loudspeakers. Through years of development, they have found that sometimes multiple smaller speakers can provide a much crisper and cleaner sound than fewer smaller speakers.

That is why the Bose F1 loudspeaker doesn't just have a single speaker. With a large 12" LF providing the low-end and 8 mid/high drivers set up as an array, the clarity is second to none. You can use the F1 on its own or with the F1 subwoofer, and you will still get a powerful sound night-after-night.

Built-In Mixer

Like with any powered PA speaker, a built-in mixer is an essential tool to have. With 2 channels that can accept XLR, 1/4 inch or RCA connections, this speaker can be set up to work with your current mixer and setup or used on its own if you only need to plug in one or 2 microphones.

Here's what Bose says about the F1 Model 812 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 “Straight,” “C,” “J” or “Reverse J” coverage patterns.

And once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern. So whether you’re playing at floor level, on a stage, or facing raked seats or bleachers, you can now adapt your PA to match the room.

Excellent sound. Very rich and detailed, even without the bass sub.

Mr Ian Higginbottom5th Feb 2019

My bands have used Mackie desks, tops and subs for twenty-odd years great sound and reliability. The Bose TS8 and F1 system is even better. Crystal clear, powerful and effortless delivery. Superb!

Mr M Shepherd11th Oct 2016

Simply put, this is an Awesome product. The first gig it went on was untested (!) and in the Grand Hotel Brighton. The gig was Ray Lewis (one of the original Drifters). He loved the sound quality and has offered us more gigs! One of the hotel managers stated that in 30 years at the hotel, he had never heard such a crystal clear sound! (for the event i used all 4, two mid tops and the two bins - perfect!)
