BeoVox Cona Passive Subwoofer

BeoVox Loudspeaker

Production: 1989 - 05/1994

Before the first Bang & Olufsen active sub-woofer in 2001 - the BeoLab 2 - was produced the first Bang & Olufsen passive sub-woofer in 1989.  Not quite the same calibre, the Beovox Cona was useful when used with smaller Beovox loudspeakers such as the CX100/CX50 or C40/30 range of compact speakers.

Containing just the one driver the Cona reproduced signals from the left and right channels in equal parts. The arrangement was made possible by the fact that the human ears cannot differentiate directions of low frequencies so that the Cona could be placed anywhere in a room in order for it to function.
