The Bose® F1 Model 812 Passive Flexible Array Loudspeaker is a small-format full range sound reinforcement loudspeaker with a flexible array that lets you control its vertical coverage pattern. Simply push or pull the flexible array into position to create “Straight,” “C”, “J”, or “Reverse-J” coverage patterns, letting you tailor the loudspeaker’s vertical coverage to a variety of environments and mounting locations. The F1 Model 812 Passive is intended for use in small to medium sized indoor installations and can also be used in portable applications.

Flex Array Shapes
Use the straight pattern when the audience is standing and their heads are approximately at the same height as the loudspeaker.
The reverse-J pattern is good for an audience in raked seating that starts at loudspeaker height and extends above the top of the loudspeaker.
The J pattern works well when the loudspeaker is up on a raised stage and the audience is seated below on the floor.
Use the C pattern for raked seating in an auditorium when the first row is on the floor with the loudspeaker.
