Bang & Olufsen Beolab 11 Loudspeaker in Silver - 1620050
With its compact, tulip-shaped design, the BeoLab 11 subwoofer combines excellent bass performance with a unique and elegant design that complements any décor. The aluminium outer shell partly conceals the black surfaces of the two drivers facing each other on the inside. The intriguing design of BeoLab 11 will make you want to put it on display, instead of hiding it away like conventional boxy subwoofers.
BeoLab 11 is not just looks, though. Beneath its glossy shell, BeoLab 11 holds true to the Bang & Olufsen tradition of providing breathtaking sound quality in loudspeakers. Able to produce the lowest frequencies with stunning clarity and precision, adding this compact subwoofer to your setup will produce a richer, more complete sound experience that will enrich your favourite music or film.
Unlike most subwoofers, BeoLab 11 has a variety of placement options, designed to adorn your wall or sit discreetly on the floor. And with a selection of beautiful colours and finishes, it not only integrates into just about any interior, but will look great doing so.
Reinventing Subwoofer Design
There is nothing conventional about BeoLab 11. With its compact, tulip-shaped form, BeoLab 11 has both a strong sculptural presence and a discreetness that will integrate perfectly into any interior. The days of hiding your subwoofer behind the sofa or in a darkened corner of the room are gone. You will want to put BeoLab 11 on display.
Every element of BeoLab 11 has been designed to complement your home environment. The aluminium shells are available in a range of attractive finishes and a variety of colours. The black, soft-touch surfaces between the shells also enhance the overall design, as do the moulded zinc foot and die-cast aluminium wall bracket. Every detail exudes style and precision of design.
Mount it on the wall
Questioning the ordinary is what our highly-skilled designers do best. So by creating an elegant, compact subwoofer that produces minimal vibration, our designers were able to create one of the first wall-mountable subwoofers on the market.
By utilising the unique Acoustic Balance Principle for the first time in a Bang & Olufsen product, our engineers were able to effectively eliminate almost all vibration from the unit. The reduced vibration combined with the subwoofer’s compact size make it perfect for wall-mounting. Featuring a concealed cable management system, the wall bracket makes wall-mounting easy. You could consider it your latest piece of breathtaking wall art.
Of course, BeoLab 11 is equally at home on your floor. It stands on an attractive, moulded zinc foot featuring our familiar soft-touch finish. At the top, the elegant bridge connecting the two shells serves to strengthen the construction and enhance the overall design.
The combination of its unique shape and compact size with the wide variety of finishes and colours means that not only can you customise BeoLab 11 to fit just about any interior; it just might be the perfect complement for your décor.
The experience is in the details
BeoLab 11 brings a whole new level of detail to your favourite music. Whether it's the thump of the bass drum or rhythmic beat of the bass guitar, you will hear things that you never heard before. It's as though your favourite artists are performing in the same room, just for you.
When you combine BeoLab 11 with your existing small to medium-size setup, you're doing more than just adding a richer bass experience. As the subwoofer takes care of producing the lower bass frequencies, your existing loudspeakers can focus on delivering articulate, clean upper bass, midrange and treble, giving you a richer, more complete sound experience that you will really be able to feel.
The excellent bass performance of BeoLab 11 does more than just breathe new life into your favourite music. When you combine BeoLab 11 with your home cinema system, movies take on a whole new dimension. So whether your favourite blockbuster features an exploding building or the sound of rain falling, you will become completely immersed in the experience.
With its elegant, tulip-shaped form, you could be forgiven for thinking that BeoLab 11 is somewhat of a lightweight as far as subwoofers go. This couldn't be farther from the truth. With its built-in 200W ICEpower amplifier and two 6½-inch drivers, BeoLab 11 delivers deep, enthralling bass that belies its compact design.
As well as being a master class in design, BeoLab 11 is also a showcase of sophisticated advanced technology. Take, for example, the two opposing drivers, which take advantage of the Acoustic Balance Principle – a first for a Bang & Olufsen subwoofer design. This configuration leads to the drivers producing 'in-phase' frequencies, which effectively eliminates almost all unwanted vibrations from the unit.
Achieving the optimal sound experience in a room depends a lot on where you place your loudspeakers and subwoofer. With three different position options built into the subwoofer, BeoLab 11 allows you to place it where you want, while still getting the clear, powerful lower-frequency sounds for an immersive sound experience that you won’t want to end.
