Bose Professional has expanded its F1 Flexible Array Loudspeaker product line, to include a new passive full range model and a full suite of mounting brackets. Together with a powered model introduced in 2015, both Bose F1 loudspeaker models are ideal for portable and installed applications. The F1 Model 812 Loudspeaker is the first portable loudspeaker offering “FLEX array technology,” which lets installers focus sound to target listening areas with four different patterns, offering exceptional power and clarity for a wide range of applications and venues.
Engineered with an array of eight Bose proprietary 2.25-inch drivers, 100-degree horizontal waveguides, a high-powered 12-inch woofer and a lower crossover point, F1 Model 812 loudspeakers deliver high SPL performance while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity that’s dramatically better than conventional installable products.
F1 Model 812 loudspeakers include M8 top and rear hang points along with three dedicated brackets for easy and flexible mounting. Pan and tilt, yoke and U bracket options are available. Additionally, both the portable and installed F1 systems offer easy setup, aesthetically pleasing design and rugged durability.
When extended bass response is needed for portable applications, the optional Bose F1 Subwoofer packs all the power of a larger bass module into a more compact design. The active loudspeaker and subwoofer have a combined 2,000 watts of power (1,000 watts each), able to fill nearly any venue with immersive sound. A Bose proprietary mounting stand for the loudspeaker is integrated right into the body of the subwoofer, making setup fast and easy. The stand even includes cable channels to neatly hide the wires. Additionally, the loudspeaker and subwoofer feature strategically placed handles for stress-free transportation (the system easily fits in a car), made with highly durable materials to ensure years of reliability.
The powered and passive F1 loudspeakers are ideal solutions for live music venues, sports bars, clubs, schools, houses of worship and any small to medium size venue requiring a high performance loudspeaker solution with precise control and directivity.
