Combines excellent bass performance with unconventional design and versatile placement possibilities

Bang & Olufsen, the Danish manufacturer of high-end audio and video products, launches its newest audio solution — the BeoLab 11 subwoofer. BeoLab 11 features a modest size but delivers amazing bass quality nonetheless. With BeoLab 11, Bang & Olufsen is introducing an entirely new look into the subwoofer category. In spite of its strong sculptural presence, it has a discreet presence which makes it easy to integrate into any home environment while maintaining a design-conscious appeal.

The unique acoustic design of BeoLab 11 allows it to be placed on the floor, in a corner, or mounted on the wall. Due to its minimal vibrations, it is one of the very few subwoofers in the world that can be mounted on a wall. With its interesting sculptural design, customers will likely prefer to put BeoLab 11 on display instead of hiding it behind a sofa.

“We are very happy to introduce BeoLab 11,” states Zean Nielsen, President of Bang & Olufsen America. “This product is so versatile with a very unique design that will appeal to a vast array of customers.”

Powerful bass wrapped in aesthetic discretion
Based on Bang & Olufsen’s renowned sound competences, BeoLab 11 offers enhanced sound experience and outstanding acoustic performance. BeoLab 11 represents a significant addition to the bass experience in any small to medium loudspeaker setup, adding low frequencies from 300 Hz and down.

BeoLab 11 is composed of two identical loudspeaker cabinets with baffles facing each other. The outer shells are made of aluminum and easily pop on and off for color customization. The concept is based on two 6 1/2″ drivers with electronics making BeoLab 11 fully active and suitable for both Bang & Olufsen and third party applications.

Utilizing the Acoustic Balance Principle for the first time in a Bang & Olufsen subwoofer, BeoLab 11 features uncompromising bass performance with minimal vibrations. It adds a presence to surround sound systems and reveals the subtle nuances of one’s favorite music tracks.

Placement flexibility
Due to the omni-directional properties of the bass, the performance is not dependent on the product’s orientation; therefore BeoLab 11 can be ‘rotated’ as wished when positioned on the floor.

“Thanks to its acoustic principle, which reduces vibrations normally experienced from a subwoofer to a minimum, BeoLab 11 can be placed either on the floor or it can be hung on a wall — and it will offer great performance in both positions. Hanging a subwoofer on the wall is quite unorthodox. However, in many home environments this may be the preferred placement, as it will be possible to hide the cables and it will free up floor space,” states Michael Jensen, Product Manager Bang & Olufsen.

Rediscover your music collection
By adding a BeoLab 11 to a simple stereo setup, one will experience things in his or her CD collection that were never noticeable before. This is because many audio CDs contain bass information that is not possible to reproduce with smaller loudspeakers as they do not cover the entire frequency range.
BeoLab 11 produces a richer sound not only in the bass area but also in the other frequency areas as it takes over smaller loudspeakers’ reproduction of the lower frequencies. This means that all capacity in the smaller speakers can be used to handle upper bass, midrange and treble.

BeoLab 11 will be available in all North American showroom locations by mid-May 2010. Color options upon launch will include silver anodized aluminum and painted white. Shortly following, it will be offered in black, dark grey, red, blue, and golden anodized aluminum. MSRP ranges from $1,997 to $2,574 depending on color and mounting options.
