Beovox M70 Passive Loudspeakers

BeoVox Loudspeaker

Production: 1975 - 1979

Designed by Jacob Jensen in the mid-1970s to complement the sophisticated Beomaster 6000, the Beovox M70 monitor-type  loudspeaker could be used as front speaker when it would look very modern when placed upon its own trumpet-type pedestal.  The unit was available in two wooden finishes with white being to special order.

The Beovox M70/75 and M100 had the same midrange unit, a German-made ITT Schaub-Lorenz unit (LPKM/130/50 120T), classified by them as a 50mm (presumably the diameter of the voice coil) soft dome in a 130mm housing; the textile dome itself being about 55mm and about 65mm (measured) including its surround. The B&O speaker leaflet of the time lists it as a 2.5″ (6.3cm). The tweeter for the M70 was a SEAS H086 (25mm soft-dome unit), while the M75 had an Audax 25mm soft-dome unit (HD12×9D25).

The crossover frequencies for the M70 were 500Hz and 4500Hz.

The loudspeaker was subsequently replaced by the Beovox M75.
