BeoVox 1700/1702 Passive Loudspeakers

BeoVox Loudspeaker

Production: 1972 - 1974

A compact, high-fidelity, pressure chamber loudspeaker.

In spite of its modest size, Beovox 1702 was highly efficient and had good sound quality. Frequency range was 50-20.000 Hz and it handled an output of up to 20 watts RMS or 40 watts total music power.

The bass unit had a diameter of 15cm and the treble was a tweeter with a 2,5cm diameter. Beovox 1702 met the DIN 45500 high-fidelity norms.

The speakers could be used as part of Beosystem 1001 (comprising BeoGram 1001 and BeoCord 1001 - see links at bottom of page), for example.
