Similar to the active version, the F1 Model 812 Passive loudspeaker also leverages FLEX array technology, featuring four different sound coverage patterns: Straight, C, J and Reverse-J.
Set on site, the flexible array shape is easily snapped into place, allowing installers to direct sound energy to listeners and away from wall and ceiling surfaces. This improved directivity means less reverberation and more SPL in the audience area, especially helpful in live music applications.
For installers, mounting is easier because the loudspeaker is more adaptable to the venue, with less compromise on mounting location or visual appearance.
The new F1 Model 812 Passive loudspeaker connects to an amplifier using a Neutrik® NL4 speakON® connector or four-terminal barrier strip. The 8Ω loudspeaker is rated for 300 watts long-term power handling (1200 W peak) and can be driven from a single PowerMatch® PM8500 or PM4500 amplifier output channel. Loudspeaker EQ is required on the Model 812 Passive model via any Bose ControlSpace® processor or PowerMatch amplifier.
The F1 Model 812 Passive loudspeaker can be mounted using any of the F1 bracket options or using a standard pole-mount tripod stand, however it is not compatible with the F1 Subwoofer stand.
