Beovox P30 (Panel) Passive Loudspeakers

BeoVox Loudspeaker

Production: 1976 - 1980

Designer: Jacob Jensen

The Beovox Uni-Phase P30 loudspeaker was an interesting design in that it was manufactured specifically for mounting on a wall. At 54cm tall it looked relatively large from the front although its depth was only 9cm. It was excellently positioned in Bang & Olufsen’s speaker range to be used with the new, equally-slimline, Beomaster 1900. Hanging in either a horizontal or vertical position (although, because of its slight angled front it looked better in a vertical position), easy mounting was made possible with its clever rear design.

The unvented pressure chamber-type loudspeaker was based around the Beovox S30 although was much slimmer. Within it were two drivers: a 160mm woofer and a 125mm tweeter. Despite its small scale, bass reproduction was relatively good.

Connection was made by cable to its rear-mounted DIN socket.

The range of ‘P’ loudspeakers were useful and very flexible in their use. When they were retired from the market there was a gap of a few years’ until production of panelled loudspeakers began once more with Beovox 3000 and Beovox 5000.
