When ELAC designs loudspeakers we look to maximize two primary qualities; sound and value. Sound quality covers many aspects, from technical measurements to listening enjoyment. Though tied closely together, ELAC has considerable experience in understanding of these links and continually endeavors to optimize both measured accuracy and the listening experience. Closely aligned to this is value, the balance between cost and performance. This applies whether we are designing ultra hi-end products such as Concentro or very affordable ones like the Debut series. We know how to extract the very best possible qualities and the very many awards we receive is a testament to those abilities.
Its exterior is a perfect symbiosis of the extravagant design of the Concentro and the clean lines of the VELA Series. The trapezoid basic shape, wraparound baffle, and gently angled cabinet combine to convey a natural, low-key appearance. The striking bottom assembly achieves a ‘high-heel’ effect, imparting a sense of elegance and stability. Incidentally, it also guarantees an exceptionally sound footing.
The innovative stepX-JET features a concentric chassis built around a new JET 5c tweeter and a midrange driver with an aluminum membrane. A patented technology uses exchangeable DCRs (Directivity Control Ring) to tailor the directional
characteristics in the mid-frequency range to conditions in the listening area. The different DCRs (three aluminum DCRs are included as standard) are used to influence the relationship between direct and diffuse sound in the listening area.
Side-Firing Long Throw Woofers
Four powerful side-firing long-throw woofers ensure effortless performance. The special ICD configuration (Impluse Compensated Design) guarantees contoured bass reproduction free of any coloration due to unwanted mechanical vibrations. Put simply, the Concentro S 509 will satisfy the most discerning listeners by reproducing audio signals to perfection across the entire frequency spectrum and at all volumes.
