Beovox 2500 'cube'
(1968-1972) Cube tweeter, 60W
Type numbers: 6206, 6211
This was a novel supplementary high range speaker designed by Jacob Jensen as part of the Beolab 5000 system. It was designed to offer 360 degree dispersion of the higher frequencies to combat the beaming of contemporary speakers. Standing only 11 inches tall, it comprised a cube set on one corner on top of a chrome plated brass post. A stainless steel disc formed the base of the stand. The speaker wire was designed so it could exit either above or below the disc. The body of the cube was a single piece of carved hardwood, painted with a semi-matt black finish. There were six two inch cone tweeters fitted with perforated black aluminium covers over them. The whole assembly weighed 3.5lbs and was designed to work with the Beovox 5000 floor standing speaker, which had a two pin socket specially for Beovox 2500. It could however also be used with Beovox 3000 and 4000 which also had the same socket. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
With the fitting of dome tweeters in conventional loudspeakers, the worst of the beaming was overcome, so Beovox 2500 was no longer necessary, and was not replaced. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
