Bang & Olufsen White BeoVox 2 Loudspeakers, Model 1630425
Architectural finesse can sometimes be hard to reconcile with lowly practical
concerns. In the world of lighting, tiltable recessed downlights exist to bridge
this gab, but truly elegant solutions have so far been missing for multi-room
BeoVox 2 brings new versatility to sleek and unobtrusive speaker installations
in your home. It can be flush mounted almost anywhere and still deliver great
balanced sound and hit the acoustic sweet spot. For further optimisation of
the listening experience, the inner speaker cabinet can be pivoted out of its
wall or ceiling installation for precise adjustment of the direction of sound.
Your options for placement of recessed speakers without compromising sound
quality increase with BeoVox 2, resulting in greater freedom for interior design.
Ceiling installations near walls or in corners would traditionally aim the sound
at no one, but become a positive advantage with a pivoting speaker. Wall-mounting
can be higher up or lower down, guided by your design considerations rather
than technical requirements.
A discreet music system is the finishing touch to a beautiful entertaining
area away from the main house. No beach hut, summerhouse, barbeque gazebo, or
covered pool area is complete without access to your favourite music. Keeping
in mind that BeoVox 2 is not an all-weather speaker for exposed locations, if
you keep it safe from direct rain and splashes of water, your imagination is
the only limit.
BeoVox 2 is another example of a perfect marriage of aesthetics and performance,

- Great sound performance
BeoVox 2 uses a two-way speaker construction with customized driver units
for tonal clarity and harmonious acoustics. Having no traditional speaker
cabinet of its own, BeoVox 2 uses the wall or ceiling cavity where it is mounted
as an acoustical chamber. With careful installation, the result is musical
reproduction that takes background music to a whole new level. The truly unique
feature in BeoVox 2, however, is the elegant tilting function that allows
you to direct the sound from individual speakers to your preferred listening
location. The resulting freedom of placement also makes it easier to locate
the speakers at the correct distance from listeners and achieve a more uniform
sound in the room
- Advantages of a passive speaker
Active speaker systems with ICEpower are a Bang & Olufsen mainstay. BeoVox
2 has it own reasons to go in a different direction. A passive speaker (BeoVox
range) needs power from another source (i.e. a power amplifier). An active
or powered speaker (BeoLab range) has an amplifier built in; therefore, it
needs ventilation and a power cable as well as a signal cable. The advantage
of an active speaker is that the manufacturer can precisely match the amplifier
to the speaker. The power amplifier can be hidden out of the way and used
to run a number of BeoVox speakers. Because BeoVox 2 has no built-in power
amplifiers, it is perfect for bringing music to less favourable environments
for electronics, such as bathroom installations. Just make sure that your
speakers are protected from direct water impact, such as shower jets or rainfall.
BeoLink Passive is the amplification and control unit for BeoVox 2. It comes
with a discreet infrared eye for remote control of the sound with your Beo4
or Beo6. Wireless installation is simple and flexible with BeoLink Wireless
1, and you may not even need to run new cables from room to room
