Hello, I just bought a pair of Beolab 50 and I am getting them delivered in a few days.

I tried to find the necessary manuals for connections and installation but can’t find them anywhere online. Anyone know where to find the necessary information? All I can find is the technical sound guide. And how to setup presets.

That’s good but makes no sense if I can’t even install them 🤷‍♂️.

Beolab 50, Beolab 8000 x 2, Beolab 4000 x 2, 
BeoSound Core, BeoSound 9000, BeoSound Century, 
BeoLit 15, BeoPlay A1, BeoPlay P2, BeoPlay H9 3rd Gen, BeoPlay H6, EarSet 3i, 
BeoVision Eclipse Gen 2 55", BeoPlay V1-40, 
BeoCom 6000 and so much else :)

The technical sound guide is the only manual I know of. Everything you need to set them up is in it.

There are is a good video on the B and O page from Geoff Martin on setting up presets. Add the 50s to the app just as you would any other product. I set mine up using the Technical Sound Guide.

Thanks,

I read it yesterday but I wish I could find more data on how to mount the panels etc. I feel a bit unsafe taking delivery and assembling everything without steady instructions.

Need to know which cables to purchase and where to buy the microphone and so on.

Buy the microphone from your dealer. As for the panels, there are three metal vertical pieces that go between the speaker grills. Gently pull on those to remove. The speaker grills then push in to place and push the metal panels back on. I think in the Geoff Martin video on presets it shows the removal process.

Okey great, thanks. Do you know the price of the microphone? Don’t want to pay over price :).

A bit weird that there is no manual for installation but I will use the information from the sound guide and the videos. I guess I also need to buy a special Powerlink cable to send audio from my TV? I have thin powerlinks for my current Beolab 20 and I am a bit worried how to solve that as I now have the cables in the floor...

It seems impossible to find good info on this from B&O. I guess there is manuals available to

Service people but I have already been waiting three months for a repair man so getting an installation (and paying for it) is not even an idea in my mind. And I prefer doing it myself as technology is my main interest in life.

I don’t remember the price of the microphone, sorry. If you can connect them to an ethernet cable instead of by WiFi, setup will probably go a little easier. As for the Power Link cables, if my memory is correct, I used the same ones that I was using with my 20s. Not sure specifically which cables they are.

Yes cabled installation definitely. My Beolab 20 was unstable in wisa and I don’t like that feeling.

I will do cables installation but as I can’t find any info on which cables or even how to best connect it in a bit lost. It’s a bit silly for such an expensive speaker I think.

I also will have a BeoSound core for use to stream music from phones and such. I guess it can be connected via DLP and that the Avant 55 can not. But I have no clue. Ethernet is just used for communication with the app and for software updates right?

So Ethernet for config and updates

Powerlink (mk3?) for tv sound

Optical for core (or possibly dlp)

And then I’ve read so many issues with cables and cat7 suggestions etc and there is no info to be found. I can’t believe they require cat 7 cables as so much else works well over even cat 5e. But analogue signals of course is another question.

I missed that you use the same cables. I use the thin Powerlink for ice speakers. I have had them since my Beolab 9 and they work well with 20 too. But 50 might need something else as they have the Lens and I need the tv to be able to adjust it so I don’t have to fiddle in an app manually, right?

You did not miss it. I added it as an edit to my post so I am sure it was not there when you read the post the first time. I also had 9s connected to my BV7 before the 20s and then the 50s. I have a Core also connected to the 50s using the optical.

Yes, ethernet/WiFi is for communication with the app and for updates.

I also have an ir eye connected to my 50s so I can use a BR1 or Essence for volume control.

I was curious about this. I might want the essence remote because I miss being able to just turn on something without a device (phone etc). I have Sonos around the house and just having a play button is pretty nice.

So ir to beolab, not core?

I have an older Core so it does not have an ir input. I can control the Core with the BR1 in Bluetooth mode and the 50s with either the BR1 or Essence Remote in ir mode.
