BeoLab 7 brackets: The loudspeaker must be fastened to one of
the brackets shown here, and on a
suitable Bang & Olufsen stand or
wall bracket.
BeoLab 7-1: Always use the ‘type 1
bracket’.
BeoLab 7-2: Use the ‘type 2
bracket’ when the loudspeaker will
be fastened to one of the ‘doublecolumn’ Bang & Olufsen stands.
However, use the ‘type 1 bracket’
if the loudspeaker will be fastened
to a wall bracket – for example
below a BeoVision 4 screen.

Here is shown how to fasten
the loudspeaker with a ‘type 1
bracket’ to a Bang & Olufsen
‘single-column’ stand (or wall
bracket). Use the same
procedure if you wish to fasten
the loudspeaker to a Bang &
Olufsen ‘double-column’ Stand
– with a ‘type 2 bracket’.
a Remove the small cover (if any)
on the stand. Press the cover as
shown, and it will come loose.
b Fasten the bracket to the stand or
wall bracket. Use the two longest
screws (M5 × 25 mm) – four
screws for a ‘type 2 bracket’.
c Fasten the loudspeaker to the
bracket. Use the two shortest
screws (M5 × 8 mm). However, do
not fully tighten the screws before
you have made the adjustments

The loudspeaker is primarily
intended to be used in a setup
with BeoVision 7*. It may, however, be used with other Bang &
Olufsen systems as well – for
example in a BeoVision 4 setup.
If used in a setup not including
BeoVision 7, you will require a
mains cord and a Power Link
cable. These cables are available
as optional accessories from
your Bang & Olufsen retailer.

Mains connections
The loudspeaker has two sockets
concerning mains supply.
The socket marked ~ is for mains
supply input (connection from the
wall outlet), and the other is a mains
supply output to BeoVision 7 (this
socket is not available on loudspeakers intended for the USmarket).
Note: The mains cord from the wall
outlet must be fastened to the
cable clamp on the loudspeaker –
as shown on the next page.

the mains cord from the wall outlet
must be secured to the loudspeaker.
To do so, tug the cord behind the
clamp.
The two mains cords and the
Power Link cable are enclosed with
BeoVision 7.
Connection to other Bang &
Olufsen systems …

correct type to connect the loudspeaker to a Power Link socket on
the Bang & Olufsen system.
For further information, refer to the
Guide enclosed with the Bang &
Olufsen system.

Power Link cable: Do not use a
cable of the older type, as this will
cause noise, and therefore not give
optimum sound quality! The new
type has a triangular mark on the
plug.
Adapt the loudspeaker to your room

When a loudspeaker is placed
in a corner or close to a wall,
the bass level is boosted
compared to the bass level from
a loudspeaker placed in a more
free-standing position.
To remove this excessive bass
boost, use the POSITION switch
to ensure that the bass level
suits the placement of the
loudspeaker. The appropriate
switch setting depends on the
distance from the loudspeaker
to the walls and corners of the
room.
The POSITION switch
• F (Free-standing position)
Use this setting if the loudspeaker
is placed so that the front grill is
more than 50 cm (20") from the
rear wall, for example on one of
the floor or table stands.
• W (Wall position)
Use this setting if the loudspeaker
is placed so that the front grill is
less than 50 cm (20") from the rear
wall.
Always use this setting if the loudspeaker is placed on any of the wall
brackets, but also when placed on
one of the stands – close to the
rear wall.
If the loudspeaker is fitted to one
of the table stands – and you have
chosen to place it on the floor – you
should set the POSITION switch to
W.
