High power. Full range. Flexible sound.


Powerful, standalone sound that flexes to meet your coverage needs - the Bose F1 Model 812 is a 1000-watt, full-range loudspeaker featuring Bose Flexible Array technology. At the heart of the F1 is a 12-inch woofer nested behind an array of eight high-output drivers. These nine speakers are supported by a lower crossover point than conventional loudspeakers - to give full voice to your sound and deliver clearer, more natural vocals and midrange clarity, even at high volumes. And you control the vertical coverage pattern. So, wherever you're playing, you can adapt the PA to match the room. With the Bose F1 Model 812, your sound stands alone.

Key Features:

Powerful full-range loudspeaker with 132 dB max SPL and low-frequency performance down to 43 Hz (-10 dB)
Portable, standalone design with built-in 1000-watt amplifier and nine transducers: eight high-output drivers and a 12" high-power woofer
Lower crossover point than conventional loudspeakers for clear and natural vocals even at high volumes
Flexible Array technology: easily adjust coverage pattern - Straight, C, J, or Reverse J - to optimize sound for different spaces: floor level, on stage, for raked seats or bleachers, and more
Automatic EQ adjusts to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern
Built-in handles for easy transport and compatible with standard 35 mm speaker stands (sold separately)
Optional Bose F1 Subwoofer (sold separately) for even more low-frequency response

I think I've owned these for 2 or 3 years now my band has had a chance to put these through their paces. To date, we haven't done a gig indoors or out where the Bose haven't been enough. Sometimes I take just the tops, sometimes the subs as well. We are always complimented by bar owners and patrons on our excellent sound. Despite the fact that I am extremely satisfied with this system, I do like to stay current with what's out there. So far I haven't found anything better. These offer the best sound quality and are the smallest lightest out there that delivers this amount of spl. If you want a louder system you gotta add a bunch of weight and size, and even then, I'd be concerned that the sound quality wouldn't be as good.

Its a Bose! What else is there to say. Loud, clear and crisp. I also bought a speaker stand rather than the sub system as this speaker has incredible bass and for indoor use, it is plenty on its own.

I bought the Bose F1 Flexible Array and the Subwoofer together. I was extremely impressed that I could bring my studio backing tracks with me to a gig on a Zoom recorder, drop 3 mics into the mix, and a guitar... and play along with it at exactly the same quality. I used a Behringer Bluetooth 8 channel mixer and controlled the sound from my phone. I was set up in 10 minutes. Mics can be close to the array without feedback issues. It's definitely the most practical portable, small size, big sound setup you can use in studio or on stage. Seriously, buy them.

Great sounding and very high quality, I would expect nothing else from a Bose! Lots of power for 1000w and is easy to carry with 2 handles. I have purchased the top speaker but will be going back to Long and McQuade to get the bottom bass speaker soon!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
