Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 11 Sub Debuts
Danish A/V manufacturer Bang & Olufsen has taken the wraps off a new active subwoofer with a distinctive form factor characteristic of the company’s emphasis on unique, conversation-sparking design.
The omni-directional, tulip-shaped BeoLab 11, which looks more like a “Fabergé egg” than a 200-watt sub, said Zean Nielsen, president of B&O America, may be placed on a floor, a table or even wall-mounted with the use of a bracket, said the company. It consists of two outer shells of hydro-formed aluminum and two identical speaker cabinets with facing baffles.
BeoLab 11, whose frequency range is 33 to 125Hz, will be available in all North American showroom locations by mid-May. Color options upon launch will include silver anodized aluminum and painted white, with black, dark grey, red, blue, and golden anodized aluminum options to be made available later. The speaker is priced from $1,997 to $2,574, depending on color and mounting options.
