Can I connect my Beolab 18 or subwoofers to non-Bang & Olufsen products?

Yes, you can connect your Beolab 18 or subwoofers to non-Bang & Olufsen products.

The speakers/subwoofers must be connected to the line output (volume controlled line out) of the amplifier. Different kinds of cables are required depending on the type of sockets on your speaker/subwoofer, see the table below. The cables are available from your Bang & Olufsen retailer. You can find your nearest retailer here. If there is no line in on the speakers/subwoofers and a PowerLink is required, then use a Line/PowerLink adaptor cable.
