I stupidly let someone else carry one of the F1 tops on Saturday and now there are dents in the bottom two panels on one of the speakers. The metal is very soft and bends easily. Is it possible to remove these covers and straighten them? They had third party covers on (Bose ones far too expensive) but still got damaged even through the padding.
Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm sorry to hear about the dented grilles on your F1 Model 812.
Those grilles are press-fit in place. You may be able to remove them without damaging them further but I suggest you contact Bose Support in the UK before you try.

They may have more information for you.
Brilliant, thank you. Had a quick look and couldn't figure out how to remove them so I will give tech support a call. Thanks - Keith
@kradcliffe , sorry to hear about the mishap. After decades of loading, unloading, setting up, sound checks and tearing down I've learned that no one cares more for your gear than you. Transporting gear could be a whole new topic. Folding platform trucks, dollies, hand trucks, folding wagons and brute strength to name a few. With Bose Portable PA, trips to and from the venue are greatly reduced. I use pick and hook sets successfully with metal mesh, but it takes time and patience. Let us know how it works out for you.
Hi there, I called Tech support and got a lady in the USA but after 10 minutes of pretty much silence she said she couldn't help. All I need to know is how to detach the mesh panels on the central part of the F1 model 812. Thanks.
I'm sorry you didn't have a better experience with Bose Support. Please watch for a private message.
Message received. Thank you!
