Bose F1 Model 812

F1 Flexible Array

The first powered portable loudspeaker that lets you control its vertical coverage pattern. So whether you’re playing at floor level, on a stage or facing raked seats or bleachers, you can adapt your PA to the room.

How it works

The eight drivers on the F1 Model 812 Flexible Array loudspeaker are mounted on a specially designed flexible baffle. Simply push or pull the array into position to create four vertical coverage patterns: “Straight,” ”J,” “Reverse J,” or “C.” Once set, the system automatically changes the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each unique coverage pattern.
