Hi foks,


I'am about to build a new house, and i'am planning on getting a big Beosound Shape (in the size) on a 3,5 meter long wall with 2,6 to the top/roof. 

I already own a A9 MK3, Stage, Beosound 2 etc - but my question is:

If I do get a huge system (14-20 tiles) and only get 4 speakers, lots of dampers (for better acoustics in the room), which level is this at? Does 4 speakers in a shape system deliver the same sound as a Beosound 1, or Beosound 2? What does 8 tiles gives me (other than double the sound....)

But do 8 speakers in the system delivers the same sound as a A9 MK3?

I do have 30 m2, so I guess 8 speakers will be an overkill - I want it to fill out the wall pretty good, and also delivers great sound, and I guess 4 should do the trick, but what I can compare 4 speakers too of existing products?

Hi Jensen 1996,

I remembered some conversation about this with a comparison between Shape and other B&O speakers:

Maybe this helps. Good plan though! I think Shape is a really nice B&O product,

In that thread look for a post from w5bno123 with images of slides.

Your 4 Shape speakers = the SPL of a pair of BL17s.

Thanks Johan and Frederic, I have found that link and post useful.

By that it is effectively showing that a BL17 is twice the power of a BL3 , etc
