Bose F1 Model 812 Flex Array 1000w Loudspeaker


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 certain directions which will suit different rooms. So if you get yourself a PA system that is designed to be set up at the same level as the audience and then you have to play a venue with tiered seating...it won't sound great.

That is where the innovation 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 the sound in multiple different patterns so no matter where the audience is sat you they still get the best sound.

The Four Positions

The F1 can be set up to have one of four vertical coverage patterns. The straight setting focuses the sound in a straight line, this is great if the speakers are at ear level with the audience with little or no variation in height. The J setting points the sound down, you would use this setting for your typical live concert or stage performance where the audience is below the speaker. Reverse J position is what you would use in a tiered seating layout such as a cinema or theater. Just 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 that changes the tonal balance of your sound depending on 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 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 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 say about the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker

The first powered portable loudspeaker that lets you control its vertical coverage pattern. So whether you’re playing at floor level, on a stage or facing raked seats or bleachers, you can adapt your PA to the room.

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.


  • 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
