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.

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!

I recently rented this from the Winnipeg location. I was blown away by the volume and clairity. It sounded as if there were 10 speakers going. I will be buying one soon.
