Bang & Olufsen BeoVox 1 In-Wall Speakers Announced

Invisible sound from Bang & Olufsen
BeoVox 1 combines elegant discretion with excellent sound performance and numerous new placement options.

Bang & Olufsen is now fulfilling the wish of many of our customers by launching BeoVox 1, a passive loudspeaker that can be placed in places where active loudspeakers fall short. Product Manager Michael Jensen explains: “We have had many customer requests for a loudspeaker solution that can be used in bathrooms and other wet rooms or outside on the terrace. A lot of customers have asked for a complete Bang & Olufsen solution that integrates with their BeoLink system and Beo4 remote control, and we have not been able to meet this demand with our active loudspeaker range until now”.

Being a built-in loudspeaker, BeoVox 1 also fits nicely and discreetly in hallways or rooms where you do not have much space. It can be completely concealed in the walls or in the ceiling. It’s extremely well suited for places where the primary activity is not listening to music, but where you’d still like to have music either as secondary entertainment or background sound.

Acoustic performance dedicated to placement
BeoVox 1 has been optimised acoustically for its placement in the walls or ceiling. In its construction, we have selected high-quality speaker units and applied a carefully designed cross-over network to attenuate and improve its performance so the sound dispersion in the treble area is optimised. The edges of the loudspeaker units are carefully curved to avoid diffractions which otherwise might have a negative effect on the sound performance.

A small switch next to the treble unit allows you to increase the treble performance to three different levels to compensate for its placement in the room. Treble is typically very directional, and if you place BeoVox 1 very high up, you may want to increase or attenuate the treble performance to get the best experience.

Design supports acoustic performance
Most in-wall speakers are either round or square, but Bang & Olufsen has chosen an elegant, discrete, oval design for BeoVox 1, applying typical Bang & Olufsen craftsmanship in its execution. The customer can choose between a black and white front grill, so BeoVox 1 matches most wall or ceiling decor. The hole pattern has been designed to ensure optimum acoustic performance, and of course you will see no “half or cut” holes at the edges.

“Another front grill detail is the painting process we apply”, explains Acoustic Engineer Jens Rahbek. “When applying paint to the surface, we have chosen to use a rotary atomizer painting system which ensures close spray-pattern control, so paint is only applied to the surface and does not penetrate into the holes. This is done to have full control of the acoustic performance, as the size of the holes has a great effect on the loudspeaker’s performance.”
