Description

The Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker is the first powered portable loudspeaker that lets you control its vertical coverage pattern.

Engineered with an array of eight high-output mid/high drivers, a high-powered 12” woofer and a lower crossover point, 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. 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.

For Deeper Bass, hook up the optional F1 Subwoofer!
For extended bass response, the optional Bose F1 Subwoofer 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 (see Sam Ash SKU: BF1SUBXXX-P for more information).

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

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

For the first time, the F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker allows you to focus sound where it’s needed. So no matter where you perform, your PA has you covered.

Features:
•  Boasts an impressive 1,000 Watts if opower along with 8 10-in mid drivers and a 12" low-end driver.
• The Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker is the first high-powered portable loudspeaker with unmatched vertical coverage control and unsurpassed audio quality.
• The loudspeaker can be easily adjusted by hand to deliver four unique coverage patterns: “Straight,” “C,” “J” or “Reverse J,” so you can optimize your sound for playing at floor level, on stage, or facing raked seats or bleachers.
• Once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern.
• Featuring eight high-output drivers, a 12” high-powered woofer and a lower crossover point, the flexible array delivers dramatically better vocal and midrange clarity.
• The optional compact Bose F1 Subwoofer delivers the output of a larger bass box, yet is easier to carry and fits in a car.
• The stand includes cable channels, so the wires are easy to hide.
• The loudspeaker is designed with strategically placed handles for easy transport.
• Each enclosure can be carried by one person and fit in a car.

Great for vocals

By 

from Raleigh NC

Pros

  • Vocal exceptional
  • Wide pattern without high end falloff

Cons

  • Input clips before internal amplifier

Best Uses

    I bought these for wide angle speech coverage and to supplement a pair of Alto Blacks in bigger rooms. For those purposes they have been exactly what I was after. The vocals sound great on the Bose but when combined with Alto Blacks, the Altos fill in the high end and warm up the low end as well.

    If you like the L1 series, you'll love these. If you don't like the L1 series, you still will probably like these. They are probably the best sounding pro speaker Bose has created to date. When I said the low end is solid, that is without the subs. I didn't buy those. The Alto's and my Yamaha DSR115 really have not needed them. They are plastic enclosures, but those feel solid. The grill mounting is a bit flimsy though and the controls don't feel like a $1000+ speaker.

    Now for my issues, by far the biggest one is the input clipping before the amplifier hits limit. The internal limiter seems slow to engage anyway but by the time it does, you are audibly distorted. With there being no real high frequency drivers though, I expect your risk of blowing anything is low. During my brief testing, I did not have any issues with that but I know I'm not able to take full advantage of the amps in them.

    As I mentioned earlier, the grill attachement is not stellar. Just folded grating that has already gotten caught twice on things and I had to push it back in. The handles on the back are convenient as well.

    So, if you are buying one pair of speakers and don't need the wide coverage, you can get a good but more for less but if you are using more than one pair of speakers like I frequently do just to have more even coverage without making some guests deaf, pair these up with a conventional speaker and you will really be pleased. They combine perfectly with the Alto Black but I'm sure they would with many others as well. I like them by themselves, but love them combined with something else that can bring a little more crispness to the high end.
