BeoVox 1 loudspeaker
Bang & Olufsen's new BeoVox 1 (seen here naked) is a passive loudspeaker suitable for use in wet areas, such as bathrooms, rooftops and patios. Because it's just 3.3 inches thick, it mounts flush within walls and ceilings, and is also protected by an oval grill that comes in white or black to match the surrounding decor. The grill is further said to be so carefully manufactured that none of the hundreds of holes will be congested with paint. Each speaker has a one-inch treble unit, and a 6.5-inch bass/mid-range unit, which together combine to span frequencies between 50Hz and 20KHz. Treble can be switched to one of three different performance settings. No prices or release dates have been announced for the product.
