BeoLab 12 - HIGH QUALITY LOUDSPEAKERS 

Pure elegance and craftsmanship with exceptional Bang & Olufsen sound. Pay your flat screen TV the ultimate compliment.

Invisible profile

BeoLab 12’s ultra-slim appearance lies in the careful shaping of its curves. A delicate balancing act between elegance and innovation. Ingenuity and absolute performance.



Smooth illusion

Designed by David Lewis, BeoLab 12 was inspired by the mathematical curve of a sine wave. Smooth, tapering edges make each speaker appear incredibly thin when viewed from the side, while the curving profile still provides the necessary space for outstanding acoustic performance. A truly elegant addition to your flat screen TV or wall.

 

Sound beyond space

At Bang & Olufsen we don’t compromise on audio. BeoLab 12 is the optimal synergy of form and function. An elegant, compact design that delivers exceptional sound performance way beyond its dimensions.

 


Clear, extended range

Acoustic Lens Technology directs audio in a clear, 180 horizontal arc around the room. By minimising reflections from the floor or ceiling, Bang & Olufsen’s visionary technology produces the best possible acoustic experience. Extending the range of a speaker’s sweet spot throughout the room with an incredible sense of space and realism.


Dual position

It is important that the Acoustic Lens is positioned so that it directs audio at the appropriate listening height.

For convenience, BeoLab 12 has been designed to be mounted with the lens facing either up or down.

Wall driven bass

When wall-mounted, BeoLab 12 boosts bass performance from its rear bass ports by bouncing it off the walls. Not only does this reduce audible distortion, it also helps keep BeoLab 12’s aluminium facade clean and uninterrupted.

Mounted on a floor-stand away from the wall, a ”free-position” slider on the back triggers digital bass enhancement.

Advanced, internal logic

BeoLab 12 features dual-band Adaptive Bass Linearisation which runs both voice coil measurements and digital signal processing algorithms to protect against distortions or damaging surges in bass.


Countless combinations

The BeoLab 12 range is a true playground for the imagination. Choose from different sizes, colours and mountings and make it part of your ideal home system or setup.
