ELAC Introduces Debut 2.0 Series Speakers

ELAC Debut 2.0 Series Speakers and Subwoofer

New from ELAC is the Debut 2.0 Series of speakers. This is a total refresh of the entire Debut lineup that is a top to bottom redesign, with new drivers, cabinets and crossovers. The new models are the F6.2 tower, F5.2 tower, B6.2 bookshelf, B5.2 bookshelf, C6.2 center, C5.2 center, A4.2 Atmos speaker, OW4.2 on-wall speaker and SUB3010 subwoofer.

The all-new designs have a number of things in common. There’s a new tweeter that’s mounted in a wide dispersion waveguide. This is a silk dome tweeter that uses a wide-roll surround and has a frequency response of up to 35,000 Hz. The woofers have a new shape to the cone that ELAC says improves stiffness and damping. And this series features new larger cabinets that incorporate internal bracing. Plus, the tuned bass ports are now located on the front of the center channel and bookshelf models, for easier placement.
