    Framingham, MA (May 20, 2015) -- Bose Professional has drawn acclaim from end users and venue owners for its iconic L1 portable array systems and now expands its portable P.A. offerings with the introduction of the F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker and F1 Subwoofer. Designed to serve an even broader set of applications than L1 systems, F1 Model 812 is the first powered portable loudspeaker that lets users optimize sound by creating up to four different vertical coverage patterns. Offering exceptional power and clarity, the F1 system provides versatility for a wide range of applications and venues, easy setup, aesthetically pleasing design, and rugged durability. The F1 system is an ideal choice for 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.

    Engineered with an array of eight Bose proprietary 2.25-inch drivers, 100-degree horizontal waveguides, a high-powered 12-inch woofer and a lower crossover point, the F1 Model 812 loudspeaker (664.66 x 334.3 x 372.5 mm; 20.2 kg) delivers high SPL performance while maintaining vocal and midrange clarity that’s dramatically better than conventional loudspeakers. For extended bass response, the optional Bose F1 Subwoofer (688 x 410.16 x 448.5 mm; 25.1 kg) packs all the power of a larger bass module into a more compact design. The loudspeaker and subwoofer have a combined 2,000 watts of power (1,000 watts each), able to fill nearly any venue with immersive sound. A Bose proprietary mounting stand for the loudspeaker is integrated right into the body of the subwoofer, making setup fast and easy. The stand even includes cable channels to neatly hide the wires. Additionally, the loudspeaker and subwoofer feature strategically placed handles for stress-free transportation (the system easily fits in a car), made with highly durable materials to ensure years of reliability.

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

    Craig Jackson, Bose Professional Product Line Manager, Portable Products, stated, “We’ve drawn inspiration from our extensive research into product offerings designed for theaters, arenas and other large spaces where loudspeaker arrays are shaped to provide optimal coverage. 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 their audiences with outstanding coverage and clarity in nearly any room.”
    The Bose F1 Flexible Array Loudspeaker System will be available late summer 2015.

    The band announced Wednesday morning it would perform a “club show” that night to kick off its Zip Code tour, which launches Sunday in San Diego. The surprise concert at the 1,300-person-capacity venue instantly sold out. And one fan outside the theater offered $4,000 for one ticket.

    The Stones played for an hour and a half, including the entire Sticky Fingers album, with the same enthusiasm they had when the record was released in 1971.
