Bose F1 overview

  • 1Description

The F1 Model 812 from Bose is a powered flexible array loudspeaker that offers four different vertical coverage patterns, allowing users to optimize their sound to fit the performance environment. So whether you're playing at floor level, on stage facing a dance floor, or facing raked seats or bleachers, you can adapt your PA to the room.

The speaker features eight mid/high frequency drivers that are mounted on a flexible baffle, which allows you to 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 EQ settings to maintain optimum tonal balance for each particular coverage pattern.

The F1 Model 812 also features a high performance 12-inch woofer that provides strong low-frequency output, and an integrated 2-channel mixer. Each of the mixer's inputs feature independent level controls, and can accommodate XLR, 1/4-inch and RCA connections.

Flexible baffle can be configured into four unique shapes, allowing you to choose the best possible coverage pattern for the application
8 vertically mounted drivers, each mounted on a custom waveguide, help deliver wide, consistent coverage
12" LF high-performance woofer provides strong low-frequency output
2-channel integrated mixer with independent level controls on each input
XLR, 1/4" and RCA input connectors

    Bose F1 reviews

    F1 Model 812 Powered Flexible Array Loudspeaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks polished compared to others and sounds even better!! I purchased the F1 combo and i am glad i did. Packs a big punch yet manageable to set up and tear down myself. Recently sold my SUV to upgrade soon and two F1 subs and two F1 812's fit perfectly in the back seat of my Honda Accord while i shop for new SUV. I am adding another set of the F1 Subwoofer for a total of four F1 Subwoofers... I like more bass with my music and to get the bass i like... i would have to run consistently at nearly 90%... I figure with two sets... i can run both at 50% - 75% easily and won't work them too hard. One set of 812's should cover highs and mids perfectly with four F1 subs.

    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 Best of the best! We've had Bose L1 Compacts for years and just switched to the F1s. Without fail, at every concert we do, every service, every outing, our sound is consistently the best out of every group there. People come back to the table just "wowed" every time. Buy them. They won't let you down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Sound from a Small Package. Really impressed by the full sound and the sharp vocals, This speaker truly reproduces the sound of the music, I have not cranked these up yet and nor will I likely, these speakers are ideal for a small venue such as a wedding, or church service, I was most impressed by the dynamics of this speaker at low volumes, and when I turned it up, it was remarkable that the sound was loud and absolutely smooth. When I started as a DJ I started with the BOSE 901's and then the 802's Music evolved and I went to folded horn designs from Klipsh, JBL, and Peavey, as horn speakers got smaller I have been favoring Peavey, and recently I have switched to powered speakers by EV, wanting to expand upon this I ventured back to Bose, and just as the BOSE 901's excited me all those years ago, I find myself once again elated by the sound of the BOSE F! 812!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All you need!!! I've been a dj for 20+ years, moving from amp racks to powered setups. Last month I purchased a pair of F1 812's with the F1 subwoofers to match. OMG!!! I own the QSC K and KW setups but this was by far the best investment for the future. I have done weddings and club venues with this setup and I've been blown away. Just did an event where the room was just shy of a gym floor and the sound was crystal clear throughout. Whats so great about these speakers is that it thumps in a room yet the crowd can still carry on a conversation without yelling. Get this, I didn't need to attach my trailer since everything fit inside my Nissan Armada...making it easy to find a parking space after setup and thats a huge plus. I figured that if I need extra thump, i would just add my QSC KW181's to the mix but oddly enough, I haven't needed them because the Bose setup has been more than enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Got It! To understand my perspective on this speaker I think it would be best to start from the beginning. I am a DJ and do parties and weddings in small to large halls (100 - 250 people). * I started with the Bose L1 and 2 B1 subs. I always felt something was missing - mid-range punch and of-course, a so-so low end performance. * Then I moved on to 2 L1s Model II with 4 B1 subs. Not much of a difference. * I then swapped the 4 B1s with 2 B2 subs. I was amazed at the difference. The B2s increased the low end punch (bass) substantially but nothing close to the sound you'd hear in a club. You can hear the bass but won't feel it. * Then I swapped the B2s with 2 EV ZXA1 subs. Now you are talking! Pheeew. I was almost there. The combination of the 2 L1 Model Il and 2 EV ZXA1 was awesome. But I was still missing the kind of Mid-range punch you'd hear in a club. * Then I got the F1 speakers. I THINK I FINALLY GOT IT!! I have not tried them with F1 Subs and am not willing to because this is it for me. The F1 is clear, loud and has the mid-range clarity and punch you'd hear in any club. With the ZXA1 sub the sound and punch was unbelievable. Just did a wedding in a mid-size hall with about 125 guests using only 1 F1 and a ZXA1 and it felt like I had 2 sets of speakers. The flexible array of the F1 is a nice touch. The sound filled the whole room. Clear and punchy even though I did not turn it up much. The ZXA1 of-course did its thing. I'd assume that the F1 subs would be the same based on other reviews but I am comfortable with the ZXA1s.
