A Low-end Complement to Your PA

Expand the power of your Bose F1 system

The Bose F1 subwoofer is a great compact sub for the F1 system. Its 1,000-watt platform and twin 10" drivers make sure your low end stays punchy. You can even switch between full-range and highpass-filter modes, making the F1 sub great with a main speaker. And best of all, the whole subwoofer package weighs under 60 lbs — a mobile rig's dream sub. And there's no more carrying around pesky speaker stands, because the F1 sub comes with a built-in bracket for mounting Bose's F1 812 flexible-array loudspeaker.

1,000 Watts of Bose Quality Sound

Get the power you need without losing crystal-clear Bose performance

Bose needs no introduction when it comes to top-of-the-line sound quality. The F1 subwoofer continues that great tradition by offering you 1,000 watts of low-end power that's perfect for your Bose F1 flexible-array loudspeakers. Bose's innovative PA products include the critically acclaimed L1 system. Now they've raised the bar again with the F1 system and the F1 subwoofer.

  • Powers two 10" high-excursion drivers
  • Can run full range or as a sub
  • Polarity switch corrects low-frequency overlap
  • Frequency range is 38Hz–250Hz

F1 Model 812 Extension Bracket

Seamlessly mount your F1 PA system without needing added gear

When you use your F1 subwoofer with the F1 Model 812 array speaker, you get to leave the extra weight and headache of speaker stands at home. The F1 sub comes with a built-in 812 mounting bracket. It inserts into the sub, elevating your 812 array speaker for optimal performance. And when the show's over, simply pull the speaker down and lock the bracket into place in the back of the sub for next time. Now you'll never have to worry about bringing extra gear or leaving it at the gig.

  • Pairs flawlessly with your Bose F1 812 flexible-array loudspeaker
  • Mounting bracket is built into the F1 sub
  • Eliminates the need for a standard pole mounting

Easy to Transport at 55 lbs.

Never fear moving the subwoofer again

If you've ever transported PA gear, you know all too well that the subwoofer is the heaviest thing in the rig — big, bulky, awkward, and did we mention heavy? But they're a necessity for a great-sounding PA rig. The F1 subwoofer's compact design weighs in at around 55 lbs. and can easily be managed by one person. Now the band won't mysteriously disappear when it's time to load in the subwoofer!

  • 55 lbs. makes it incredibly light for a sub
  • Much more compact than many other PA sub designs
  • 27" H x 16.1" W x 17.6" D

Great Sub in a small footprint!!

Bose F1 Sub is so unique in design and portability, its smaller than any other subs out there but gives a real good punch. Well worth every penny!! Thank you sweetwater for the best service all the time.

Second Review

This is my second set of Bose F1 Subs and 812 cabs. They're really unbelievable! This system seems to defy logic. I know it doesn't, but it just sounds amazing. And the amount of output is tremendous. I highly recommend the Bose F1 system...

If you're looking for something to cover wide variety of venues and genres, the F1 system is the way to go.This sub doesn't seem to be as deep as some of the subs I've heard before (vs. JBL or QSC), but it is definitely clean powerful bass.I used this system at one 5K race and 2 weddings -- At the 5K, I used one (1) 812 + Sub pair @ 50% and it was loud and clear for approx. 200 people. At the weddings, I used two (2) 812 + Sub pairs @ 50% and it was probably overkill. At the first wedding, I was shaking the metal in the wall at the facility, and at the second wedding, I got a complaint from another wedding in the facility that my bass was too loud. LOL whoops.Anywho, the F1 is a powerhouse. Definitely a favorite.

Goes great with the 812

Really enhances the 812 - deep rich concert bass tones - very professional sound.

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Picotte

The Bose F1 system gives me the definition and coverage I need for midsize live-sound gigs. These PA speakers lets me get great separation of all the parts. It also responds really well to EQ and has plenty of punch. Best of all, the whole compact system packs down small and is easy to transport.
