By now it’s likely you’ve seen/hear the L1 ‘stick PA’ in action, it’s been a presentation favourite. Bose has gone further with the launch of the F1 or the ‘F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker and F1 Subwoofer’ to be precise. Designed to serve an even broader set of applications than L1 systems, F1 Model 812 is the first powered portable loudspeaker that lets users optimise sound by creating up to four different vertical coverage patterns. The F1 system provides versatility for a wide range of applications and venues, easy setup, aesthetically pleasing design, and rugged durability. With the F1 system, sound can be optimised for playing at floor level, on stage or facing raked seats or bleachers. To control the vertical coverage pattern, users simply push or pull the array into position to create ‘Straight’ (tightest vertical control, for floor-level audience coverage), ‘J’ (adjust vertical splay down, when PA is placed on stage), ‘C’ (adjust vertical splay up and down, to cover extreme raked seating), or ‘Reverse J’ (adjust vertical splay up, eg. for bleacher seating coverage) dispersion patterns. Once set, the system automatically adjusts the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern.

Engineered with an array of eight proprietary 2.25-inch drivers, 100° horizontal waveguides, a high-powered 12-inch woofer and a lower crossover point, the F1 Model 812 loudspeaker delivers high SPL performance while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity. For extended bass response you can opt for the F1 Subwoofer. The loudspeaker and subwoofer have a combined 2000W of power (1000W each), able to fill small- and mid-sized venues with immersive sound.
