Bang & Olufsen introduced the BeoVox 2, a passive in-wall/in-ceiling speaker, which can be rotated or tilted, after installation towards a specific listening position. The inner speaker cabinet can be pivoted out of its wall or ceiling installation for precise adjustment of the direction of sound. In addition, the BeoVox 2 can be flush mounted almost anywhere and still deliver great balanced sound and hit the acoustic sweet spot.
BeoVox 2 is an elegant passive loudspeaker that can be placed in places where you do not want speakers to fill up the room or where you may want to add to the sound stage. Product Manager Michael Jensen explains: “We have had many customer requests for a loudspeaker solution that can fit nicely and discretely in hallways and other secondary rooms. It is extremely well suited for places where the primary activity is not listening to music, but where you would still like to have music either as secondary entertainment or background sound; places where you would otherwise have problems finding space for more voluminous loudspeaker solutions. But we also see requests for such speakers in more dedicated setups, where people want to add in-ceiling speakers or side speakers to get the envelopment of sound you may want in a dedicated home cinema room.”
What BeoVox 2 adds to the vast range of in-wall speakers on the market today, is its flexibility. Besides being equipped with high quality speaker drivers, BeoVox 2 has the option of manually rotating the speaker and tilting the front forward to point the sound in a desired direction.
“The possibility of adjusting the speaker units towards a dedicated listening position improves the timbral balance and ensures a more directional sound experience,” explains Acoustic Engineer at Bang & Olufsen, Jens Rahbek. “Furthermore, we have selected high-quality speaker units and applied a carefully designed cross-over network to attenuate and improve the performance of BeoVox 2 so the sound dispersion in the treble area is optimised.”
The speaker cabinet can be angled forward in a 45 degree angle (BeoVox 2-1) or a 30 degree angle (BeoVox 2-2) allowing you to decide where to direct the sound. The position can be set in intervals of 1 degree.
Distinctive Bang & Olufsen speaker design
The application of a characteristic Bang & Olufsen crafted aluminium surface to a circular shape with an asymmetric cut through, and the combination of fabric and elegant aluminium finish, give BeoVox 2 a distinctive Bang & Olufsen look and feel.
BeoVox 2 comes in two sizes, both equipped with a 3/4″ soft dome in either black or white:
- BeoVox 2-1 is based on a 3″ cone
- BeoVox 2-2 is based on a 5″ cone
