Silk-Dome Tweeter With Deep-Spheroid Custom Waveguide
The waveguide surrounding the new ELAC high-frequency driver features a custom, deep spheroid profile to improve directivity control and shield the dome tweeter from cabinet diffraction modes inherent in traditional box enclosures.
Cabinet Engineered For Sound
Every ELAC enclosure is engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious textured vinyl finish. The F5 isolates the tweeter and top woofer from the rest of the cabinet to help minimize standing wave issues. An additional brace is located in the bottom portion of the cabinet to strengthen the cabinet and help minimize unwanted cabinet resonances.
Custom-Designed Woofers With Aramid-Fiber Cone
Aramid fiber is employed in the woofers of all ELAC Debut passive speaker systems. Aramid fiber offers a superior strength-to-weight ratio and improved damping characteristics over conventional paper or plastic drivers. This added strength means arriving at designs that achieve a broader bandwidth with smoother response.
Gold Plated 5-Way Binding Posts
5 - Way binding posts are utilized allowing for a wide variety of connection possibilities. Gold plating has been applied for improved connectivity.
Triple Dual Flared Vents
All ELAC speaker employ a dual flared vents to greatly reduce air turbulence which can cause unwanted noise.
