Bose Debuts Flexible-Array PA Loudspeaker and Matching Subwoofer
Bose Professional announced the availability of the F1 Model 812 flexible-array loudspeaker and F1 subwoofer, the latest additions to the company’s range of portable P.A. offerings. Designed to serve a broad set of applications, F1 Model 812 is the first powered portable loudspeaker that lets users optimize sound by creating up to four different vertical coverage patterns. The F1 system is targeted at live music, DJ, corporate AV, house-of-worship, AV rental and general P.A. applications.
With the F1 system, sound can be optimized for playing at floor level, on stage or facing raked seats or bleachers. To control the vertical coverage pattern, users simply push or pull the array into position to create “Straight” (tightest vertical control, for floor-level audience coverage), “J” (adjust vertical splay down, when P.A. is placed on stage), “C” (adjust vertical splay up and down, to cover extreme raked seating), or “Reverse J” (adjust vertical splay up, e.g. for bleacher seating coverage) dispersion patterns. Once set, the system automatically adjusts the EQ to maintain optimum tonal balance for each coverage pattern.
