Bose Professional F1 Model 812Following its L1 portable array systems, Bose Professional has added to its portable PA line with the F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker and F1 subwoofer. The new system is aimed at live music, DJ, corporate A/V, house-of-worship, A/V rental and general PA applications.

Designed to serve a wider range of applications than the L1 systems, the F1 Model 812 allows optimisation of performance through the use of up to four different vertical coverage patterns. It also offers easy set-up and durability.

With the F1 system, sound can be optimised for playing at floor level, on stage or facing raked seats or bleachers. Control of the vertical coverage pattern is achieved by pushing or pulling 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 for bleacher seating) dispersion patterns. Once set, the system automatically adjusts the EQ to maintain the tonal balance for each coverage pattern.

Using an array of eight proprietary 2.25-inch drivers with 100° horizontal waveguides and a 12-inch woofer and a lower crossover point than the L1, the F1 Model 812 delivers high SPL while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity. Extended bass response can be added with the Bose F1 subwoofer. The loudspeaker and subwoofer have a combined 2kW of power (1kW each). A proprietary mounting stand for the loudspeaker is integrated into the body of the subwoofer, making set-up fast and easy. The stand also includes cable channels to hide cabling. Additionally, the loudspeaker and subwoofer feature handles for transportation (the system easily fits in a car), and is made with highly durable materials.

The F1 Model 812 has been designed with features to facilitate fixed installations through threaded inserts and accessory pan and tilt and yoke brackets.

‘We’ve drawn inspiration from our extensive research into product offerings for theatres, arenas and other large spaces where loudspeaker arrays are shaped to provide optimal coverage,’ says Bose Professional Product Line Manager for Portable Products, Craig Jackson. ‘With the F1 Flexible Array Loudspeaker System, we’ve brought the same concept of coverage control to a high-performance, small-format portable PA. Now, performers, bands and DJs can easily tailor the F1 loudspeaker, providing audiences with outstanding coverage and clarity in nearly any room.’
