Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer - 1000W

The Bose F1 Subwoofer is designed to be compact and portable, while still having good projection.

Unlike conventional subwoofers with single LF drivers, this one sports two 10" drivers, which adds to its projection while having improved punch and clarity.

This design also allows the F1 Subwoofer to handle fullrange speaker duties when needed.

As expected, it matches perfectly with other F1 Series speakers with its built-in mounting bracket.

Being very light at just 55lbs is also another standout feature of this subwoofer, making it ideal for mobile setups.

Pros

For its weight and size, the Bose F1 Powered Subwoofer packs quite the punch! And this is corroborated by many users who found that its two 10" woofers perform better than single, bigger woofer setups. It continues to exceed the expectations of many users, including guitarists, keyboardists, other musicians and even DJs.

Cons

Mike Crofts of Sound on Sound was concerned with the controls not being deeply recessed, thus exposing them to potential damage. Other than that, he was impressed with the overall quality, ease of use, and flexibility of Bose' F1 speaker line.

Overall

The Bose F1 Subwoofer will appeal to those who already own F1 series speakers, and to those who are looking for something portable.

This was on our recommended list until we performed a major review in November 2019 and found there were more highly rated options that were available and you can find them in our guide to The Best PA Subwoofers.
