Attenuated Converter Kit for Bang and Olufsen Beolab speakers
Now you can use almost any combination of Beolab speakers with Non B&O Hifi equipment!
This handy attenuated converter kit will allow B&O Beolab active speakers to be plugged into the speaker outputs of any power amplifier, receiver or surround sound amp (provided channel power output is below 150 Watts). This converter is adjustable to give the required level of attenuation so that you can convert an amplified speaker output of up to 150 Watts per channel into a Beolab Powerlink or Line level input, with no loss of sound quality.
If you ever thought that you couldn't use B&O's active Beolab loudspeakers with your old B&O audio system or your non-B&O amplifier, then this is the answer to your problems!
What is it? This compact attenuated converter box is fitted with a short set of fly-leads which connect to the speaker terminals on your amplifier. The electronic circuit will reduce amplifier volume levels by up to 100x - this allows you to connect a pair of Beolab active (powered) loudspeakers directly into your non B&O hifi system, or even a pre-1990 Bang and Olufsen Beomaster or Beocenter.
The input connections to the amplifier are bare wires (for screw-down or spring-clip amplifier terminals) or if you wish, you can purchase 2-pin male DIN plugs separately in our store for use with older B&O amplifiers - plus other input connections are available on request. The converter has two RCA (Phono or Cinch) output sockets, to allow our RCA Line Input Cables for Beolab Speakers to be used to connect a stereo pair of Beolab speakers. Sounds Heavenly recommend using our RCA Line Input Cables for Beolab Speakers.
Dimensions of the converter are approx. 90 x 70 x 30mm and the fitted cables are approx. 150mm long. Please note that this device must be fitted directly to your amplifier or AV receiver, it is NOT suitable for connection at the end of normal 2-wire speaker cables.
Compatibility - This converter is suitable for most of the current range of Bang and Olufsen Beolab active loudspeakers and most past models, including:
- Beolab 1
- Beolab 3
- Beolab 4 / 4PC (see RCA to Beolab 4 cable)

*Older Beolab speakers that have displays (such as Beolab 3000, 4500, 5000 and Penta) will work but the displays will not function.
- Beolab 2 subwoofer
- 7-1 / 7-2 / 7-4 / 7-6
Please contact us for advice before purchasing this solution. Connect any Beolab speakers with Powerlink inputs (including Beolab 2, Beolab 7-x, Beolab 10 and Beolab 2500 with the addition of an extra powered trigger cable).
IMPORTANT NOTE: NEVER connect your Beolab speakers directly to the output terminals of an amplifier without using this attenuated convertor, as it can instantly cause serious and expensive damage to your speakers!
When combined with Sounds Heavenly's existing Powerlink to amplifier cables, this new development means that you no longer have to choose the "correct" active or passive speakers for your system. Selection of audio sources and speakers can now be made entirely on the grounds of sound quality or aesthetics, with almost any imaginable combination now being possible. Those who are familiar with B&O products will know that this is truly a revolutionary solution with immense potential!
