BeoLab 11

BeoLab Loudspeaker

Production: 04/2010 - present

The Beolab 11 is the new lower priced subwoofer, designed in particular to accompany the Beovision 10. It utilises a design principle seen in other subwoofers of having identical units firing in opposite directions and hence making the structure more stable. Indeed the B&W PV1 does just this using B&O ICE amplification.

B&O however have added a new twist to the equation by having the two 130mm drive units firing inwardly and so allowing the external casing to be made from the same polished aluminium seen in the Beovision 10.

Amplification is via a 250W ICE unit and so the speaker can be seen to fit below the Beolab 2 in the range.

Mounting Options

As a result of the balanced drive units, the Beolab 11 will be offered both as a floor standing model and with a wall bracket. This is again designed to match the Beovision 10. The Beovision 10 in both 40" and 46" versions is designed so that it can be used as a stand alone set but still utilise the subwoofer output.

This should add the lower frequencies not able to be produced due to the small speaker enclosure of the Beovision 10.

The Beolab 11 will stand just 320mm high on the floor stand. The cross over frequency and bass lift is set with a collection of switches on the base. There is a Powerlink connection and two Powerlink outputs so it can be used in a stereo system.
