Just as the flat-screen forever changed the
television, BeoLab 12 will transform the way perfect
surround sound is achieved in the living room.
BeoLab 12 is Bang & Olufsen's first on-wall loudspeaker
concept developed with video and surround sound setups in
mind, matching perfectly any flat screen television in the
A high-performing "optical illusion"
The loudspeakers are placed flat on the wall and
incorporate the famous Bang & Olufsen Acoustic Lens
Technology that disperses the high frequencies horizontally
in a 180 degree angle in front of the loudspeaker, allowing
the listener to sit anywhere in front of it and still have
a fantastic listening experience.
The three-dimensional wave design contemplated by designer
David Lewis creates a sculptural shape that is discrete and
sleek. Its compact shape does not sacrifice performance or
acoustic perfection. In fact, BeoLab 12 is an ingenious
example of the synergy between design and performance. It
exploits every inch of the unit to drive out an incredibly
clear and precise sound experience.
Great acoustics in minimal space
BeoLab 12 boasts outstanding versatility and scalability to
fit the owner's taste and space. Conceived as an on-wall
loudspeaker BeoLab 12 is a full range loudspeaker with a
¾-inch Acoustic Lens for the treble, a 2-inch midrange unit
and two 6.5-inch flat CosCone woofers for the lower
frequencies pointing towards the wall. The 2-inch aluminium
cone gives a precise sound, which complements the sound of
the acoustic lens.
To achieve the optimum performance in such narrow
dimensions has been a challenge presented to the Bang &
Olufsen acoustic engineers once more, and the result is
likely to surpass your expectations.
In the shadow of the lens, the midrange grille is made in a
high quality aluminium finish with holes in a pattern
designed to match the shape of the lens and allow
sufficient acoustic penetration.
BeoLab 12 includes Bang & Olufsen's own ICEpower class D
amplifier technology in a new design. ICEpower - a Bang &
Olufsen patented technology - stands for Intelligent,
Compact and Efficient power conversion and is the secret to
the achieved sound performance. Due to the limited space
and the requirements for high peak power, a new amplifier
and a matching power supply have been developed. These give
a small form factor and offer a solution that provides 480
watts in total.
Up or down - whichever way you like
As the optimal sound is achieved when the lens is placed at
the same height as your ears in the listening position, you
can place BeoLab 12 with the lens up or down.
The loudspeaker design is made so either position will look
great. A three-position switch to accommodate for placement
influencing the performance of the loudspeaker is placed in
the socket panel on the rear.
BeoLab 12 offers customers a unique possibility to have the
slimmest surround sound setup with a Bang & Olufsen flat
screen on the wall.
BeoLab 12 will of course also fit nicely to any Bang &
Olufsen music system. In addition BeoLab 12 can be
connected to a flat screen television of any other brand to
secure the viewer a great sound experience. BeoLab 12 is
truly about performance, flexibility and discretion when at
BeoLab 12 is sold exclusively through authorised Bang &
BeoLab 12 is expected to arrive in showrooms early Spring
