Vision of sound
Personalise your own BeoLab 90
Just as the speaker technology caters to your personal listening habits and lifestyle so does the design, which can be customised to perfectly match the surroundings of your home.
Try the customisation tool and choose from our selection of fabric colours, aluminium tones and wood types to create a truly personalised BeoLab 90.
BeoLab 90 has 18 state-of-the-art Scan-Speak loudspeaker drivers placed in carefully defined locations and directions to deliver maximum performance in frequency, time and space.
The floor speaker packs a combination of 14 channels of the latest generation ICEpower amplifiers – a compact and highly efficient platform developed by Bang & Olufsen – and four additional class D amplifiers, all customised for the BeoLab 90. In total, the amplifiers can deliver up to 8,200 watts per loudspeaker.
If you want all the hard facts, please go ahead and download the BeoLab 90 white paper. Or just believe us when we say: This is as loud as you can possibly go without front row tickets for a stadium concert, and as detailed as you can possibly get without enjoying your albums in a professional recording studio.
The intelligent loudspeaker
Active room compensation
Resonances in your room, and boundary effects from your walls, affect the sound you get from your loudspeakers. BeoLab 90 is fitted with Bang & Olufsen’s new Active Room Compensation technology that makes up for the impact of your room, your furniture, the placement of the loudspeakers, and the location of the listening position.
Beam width control
Almost like switching between a spotlight and a lightbulb, Beam Width Control gives you the power to narrow or widen the sound dispersion.
Beam direction control
Most loudspeakers are designed with a front and a back, with the sound radiating forwards. This is perfectly adequate when the listener is positioned directly in front of the speaker, but in a modern flexible living environment this is far from always the case.
Under the hood
Technology made simple
You can even select presets and control BeoLab 90 directly from your other Bang & Olufsen products. Perfect when using a pair of BeoLab 90 to expand a movie experience on your BeoVision TV.
form follows function
BeoLab 90 is designed according to the overall idea that form follows function. The loudspeaker driver positions and orientations are defined by the acoustical requirements. The placement of the electronics’ cooling fins was chosen to ensure that the rising heat could have no impact on the sound experience.
The design is based on a complex aluminium cabinet totaling more than 65 kg, so the structure is rock solid. In a subtle contrast to the massiveness of the loudspeakers, the outer ‘skin’ is made of acoustically transparent fabric stretched like sails hovering in front of the driver units. The curved wooden base visually lifts up the large structure from the floor, making BeoLab 90 appear to float in your home.
Like no one else.
Creating the future of sound
A floor speaker with the size and complexity of BeoLab 90 is quite something to manufacture. The top tower is cast in 10mm thick plastic, and the main cabinet is solidly cast in aluminium. These are fitted together and all the amplifiers and drivers are mounted, software is installed and as the last step, the ‘naked’ loudspeaker is clad in the semi-transparent fabric and the aluminium crowns are fitted.
Nobody said it should be easy to build the world’s most advanced loudspeaker.
Combine and integrate
BeoLab 90 seamlessly lends its audio grandeur to your entire Bang & Olufsen collection. Pair a set of BeoLab 90 with the BeoVision TV and discover an audio-visual power couple out of this world.
