BeoLab 17


Bang & Olufsen has revealed plans to expand its range to include wireless music streaming for the first time, with the launch of the WiSA-compatible Beolab 14 and 18 speakers, and Beolab 17 subwoofer. Whether you own a B&O TV or not, WiSA speakers will let you stream 24bit high-resolution audio files or play wireless 7.1 surround sound from a connect Blu-ray player.

The Beolab 17 effectively replaces the existing BeoLab 4000 bookshelf speakers as the go-to wireless model for anyone looking for compact yet high-powered sound. With a 6in mid-range driver and 3/4in dome tweeter, each powered by its own 160 watt class D amplifier, the Beolab 17 is incredibly powerful for its size, plus it looks every bit as stylish as we've come to expect from B&O.

Designed in partnership with David Lewis design director Torsten Valeur, each Beolab 17 is made from a polished sheet of unbroken aluminium, which has been painted and grinded to give it the appearance of raw metal. Inside, four WiSA-compatible wireless antennas ensure a strong signal, despite the all-metal enclosure. The "Broken Ice" speaker grilles are certainly eye-catching, but can be exchanged for less ostentatious white, black or blue cloth grilles if you prefer.

  • Adaptive Bass Linearization (ABL). Continuously adapts the bass response to the input signal, resulting in a significantly improved bass performance, without the risk of damaging the driver.
  • Room adaptation. A three-position switch controls the bass response of the speaker depending on the placement of the speaker in the room.
  • Thermal protection. Temperatures are constantly monitored to keep the speaker at top performance all the time
  • Line sense - auto on /off – for connecting non-Bang & Olufsen equipment
