Product Description

When it comes to choosing sound reinforcement, one of the most important considerations is dependability. As one of the brands most trusted by US consumers, Bose enjoys a stellar reputation for reliability and has been a decades-long leader in manufacturing products that excel at producing high fidelity audio from compact enclosures. The Bose motto is "Better Sound Through Research" and they deliver on that promise with every new product design.

F1 Powered Subwoofer
Certain applications just demand the use of a subwoofer. Reproducing the essential tones of a kick drum, bass guitar or synth requires a speaker capable of adding power and punch to your low end. And as any DJ will tell you, it’s all about the bass. The Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer adds that indispensable frequency range required for a PA system to truly qualify as “Full Range.”

Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer Features

  • The compact Bose F1 Subwoofer delivers the output of a larger bass box, yet is easier to carry and fits in a car
  • A mounting stand for the loudspeaker is integrated right into the body of the subwoofer so you always know where it is, making setup fast and easy
  • The stand includes cable channels, so the wires are easy to hide
  • The loudspeaker and the subwoofer each have 1,000 watts of power
  • The loudspeaker and subwoofer are designed with strategically placed handles for easy transport
  • Each enclosure can be carried by one person and fit in a car
Applications
  • Live music performances
  • Full bands of any style
  • Solo musicians
  • Mobile DJs
  • Houses of worship
  • Schools and universities
  • Resorts and hospitality venues
  • Business presentations
F1 Subwoofer Enclosure
With its warm tone and wide coverage, the F1 bass module is capable of producing deep, powerful bass typical of cabinets twice its size. Measuring a compact 27" H x 16.1" W x 17.6" D and weighing in at a mere 57 pounds, the Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer is small enough to easily transport in smaller cars and big enough to fill medium-sized venues with a consistently robust bottom end.

Although it’s a great addition to any system, users pairing the F1 with the Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Powered Loudspeaker will enjoy the sturdy, adjustable-height mounting stand integrated into the body of the subwoofer for super convenience and quick setup. The stand even includes cable channels to neatly conceal wires. The handles are strategically placed and the composite enclosure extremely robust while remaining lightweight.

Components
Powering the two 10" heavy-duty, high-excursion drivers is a massive 1000 watts of Class-D amplification with plenty of headroom to produce an impressive 130 dB SPL with a frequency range of 34 Hz to 112 Hz (-10 dB).

The Rear Panel
Sporting some particularly useful features, the Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer’s rear panel includes a combination XLR/Balanced 1/4” TRS input for each of the two channels, with each channel also having its own XLR line output.

There are three LEDs that denote POWER/FAULT (Blue = power on, Red = fault), LIMIT (lights up Amber when the limiter is engaged), and SIGNAL/CLIP (Green = signal present, Red = signal clipping.)

The FRONT LED switch allows you select what the cabinet’s front LED will indicate. Choices are POWER, LIMIT, and OFF.

The POLARITY switch offers NORM or REV, used to reverse the polarity for maximum compatibility with other speakers in the system.

The LINE OUTPUT EQ allows for THRU or HPF. THRU passes signal straight to the outputs, while HPF filters out everything above 100Hz for optimum use with a full-range top speaker.

And of course, there’s a Master Volume knob for controlling overall volume of the Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer.
 
Safe and Sound
Protect the F1 with a stylish and durable Bose F1 Subwoofer Padded Travel Bag! (sold separately) This resilient bag shields against dirt, dust, and the elements, while helping to negate the effects of bumps and impacts. It also allows access to the hand grips for easy transportation and is embroidered with the Bose logo.

Every expectation surpassed!
What is your opinion of this product?
I own a company that provides PA solutions for working musicians in small to medium-large venues. Covered and outdoors with 1000+/- people is what we should be talking about as this is my most common scenario. As a one person operation, when there's no help setting up, these are manageable easily with a light dolly or cart. They have a relatively small footprint in comparison to other subs and have a great mounting system for the 812. Now, the sound... For people who upgraded from the B1 bass modules to the B2 and were excited about the increase in low end, these subs feel 10x more powerful than the B2's. They don't have the rear bleed the passive cabs have and they punch MUCH harder. I set up two F1 stacks for an outdoor gig last fall and had tons of headroom with some bands at a consistent 97db at 60 feet from front of stage. Not the ear-piercing and highs that fatigue listener's ears but full "fat" sound where you would expect to see a couple stacks of dual 15" subs. Buy this system. You won't be disappointed!

Must Have for Mobile Shows
What is your opinion of this product?
The Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer is the perfect addition to Bose F1 Model 812. It is light and compact yet produced full punchy bass. The mounting stand provides just the right elevation and cable channel system to hide unsightly cables that leaves you with a very asthetically pleasing rig. Kudos Bose! I Love it!
