ELAC - DEBUT B5 BOOKSHELF SPEAKERS (PR)

$249.98 $250.00


Does the Debut B5 change the game for bookshelf speakers? Absolutely. It’s not just its size-to-performance ratio that sets a new standard. The B5 may be the best value in the world of affordable speakers, with sound that surpasses speakers costing many times more.

“A rarity in the high end. It's little, it's vinyl-clad, and it’s cheap. And it packs more pure, honest musicality into its modest bass-reflex cabinet than a $229 speaker has a right to. What the team at ELAC has managed to wring from this most humble of designs is nothing short of exceptional!”
The Absolute Sound, 2015 Product of the Year Award
 
Andrew Jones-Designed Drivers Match Intricate Crossover, Spheroid Waveguide
Andrew Jones custom-designed both the tweeter and bass driver to deliver an exceptional audio experience that can't be delivered with typical off-the-shelf parts. A custom crossover with audio-grade components ensures smooth transition between drivers. In addition, a custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile improves directivity control and shields the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction.
 
Aramid-Fiber Cones Add Strength and Smoothness

Woven aramid fiber offers a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and damping over common polypropylene or paper cones. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended frequency response.
