Hi-fi television acoustics

Packed with advanced technology, BeoLab 7 is, quite simply, the most powerful stereo speaker ever developed for TV. With six individual driver units, all powered by their own digital ICEpower amplifier, BeoLab 7 delivers an unequalled sound performance for your TV viewing. The beam-shaped loudspeaker below the screen provides superb acoustic performance and signifies the presence of sound as an integral part of your viewing experience. Musically, the speaker rivals many hi-fi systems, and is quite capable of being used as a BeoLink speaker.

The natural fit

BeoLab 7 is specially developed for BeoVision 7 to contribute the ultimate stereo sound performance to the viewing experience. BeoLab 7-1 is the natural accompaniment for the BeoVision 7-32 LCD television, while the broader beam of BeoLab 7-2 is designed for BeoVision 7-40. In addition, BeoLab 7 stereo loudspeakers fit naturally under the BeoVision 4 plasma screen, or under a projection screen. In this application, the speaker can be either wall-mounted or placed on a special tabletop stand.

Colours to match

Long and lean, BeoLab 7-1 and BeoLab 7-2 look at home under a BeoVision 7 or BeoVision 4, or as part of a projection screen setup. The shorter BeoLab 7-1 is best suited for the BeoVision 7-32” screen. The loudspeaker cabinet is made from a single piece of aluminium and coated in a resilient black soft-touch lacquer. The perforated aluminium front grill now comes anodised in five different colours: Light and dark grey, blue, red and black.

A firm grip on powerful sound

A special three-way bass reflex construction incorporates six individual units – two each for treble, mid-range and bass. Each driver is powered by a unique built-in ICEpower amplifier, delivering a combined effect of 750 watt. In addition, BeoLab 7-1 and 7-2 are equipped with thermal protection circuits and Adaptive Bass Linearisation (ABL), which ensures maximum performance without distortion, even at very high volume. Bang & Olufsen has a quarter of a century of experience making loudspeaker cabinets from extruded aluminium. This technique allows for very rigid and compact enclosures with powerful sound performance.

Note that BeoLab 7-1 was designed to be used with the BV4-37 and BV4-42. The wider BeoLab 7-2 may be used with the larger-version BeoVision 4: BV4-50 and BV4-65.

Mounting Options

All four versions of BeoLab 7 were designed for incorporation with Bang & Olufsen's motor stand options.

STBbrackets, Bang & Olufsen's preferred supplier for brackets and stands, have made a range of solutions specifically for this model including close fitting wall brackets. Distributed throughout the World by the Bang & Olufsen store network, the STB options add to the diversity of mounting options and positions available.
