Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 12 On-Wall Loudspeaker

Bang & Olufsen announced BeoLab 12, their first on-wall loudspeaker designed to mount next to any flat screen television. However, they looks best when paired with B&O’s own BeoVision 10 LCD HDTV (as shown in the photo above).

The loudspeakers are placed flat on the wall and incorporate the 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.

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 3/4-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.

In the shadow of the lens, the midrange grille is made in a high quality aluminum finish specifically designed with 939 holes in a pattern 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.

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.

Price and Availability
The B&O BeoLab 12 is sold exclusively through authorized Bang & Olufsen dealers for about $4,800/pair, and is expected to arrive in showrooms by early Spring 2012.
