Designed to adapt its EQ parameters to the surrounding room, the Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Powered Loudspeaker turns heads in awe with its huge sound. Because of its portable size, the Bose F1 becomes ideal solution for on-the-go performers and venues that are short on space but need unparalleled audio quality.
The key to the incredible performance of the Bose F1 Model 812 Array lies in its flexible baffle and shapeable coverage pattern. When the array is moved into position, it automatically alters the equalization to properly balance each coverage pattern. This means that wherever the loudspeaker is placed, it adapts so the PA can compliment the room. It doesn’t matter if the loudspeaker is placed on the floor, stage, or positioned above the stage - it conforms on its own! The array can be positioned to create different coverage patterns; i.e. ‘Straight’ (focuses the sound directly forward towards the audience), ‘C’ (full spectrum sound wave projection up and down towards audience), ‘J’ (directs sound downward), or ‘Reverse J’ (focuses the sound upwards). Therefore, no matter what room you’re playing in, the Bose F1 Loudspeaker has you covered in all directions. It even projects the sound horizontally for maximum coverage in all array settings. In every corner of the room, you’ll hear the full spectrum of sound as its meant to be heard; loud and clear!
