The ELAC Debut series delivers superior performance thanks to custom made key components, with no off-the-shelf parts. Unlike many more expensive speakers that mix parts-bin drivers, bare-bones crossovers and generic cabinets—every ELAC speaker is built from a clean-sheet design.”

ELAC DEBUT SPEAKERS

DISCOVER A FAMILY OF PERFORMERS. ELAC PRESENTS FIVE DEBUT SERIES SPEAKER SYSTEMS CREATED BY ACCLAIMED SPEAKER DESIGNER ANDREW JONES, INCLUDING TWO BOOKSHELF, FLOORSTANDING, CENTER CHANNEL AND DOLBY ATMOS®-ENABLED MODELS—COMPLEMENTED BY THREE POWERED SUBWOOFERS.

5.25-inch Aramid-Fiber Floorstanding Speakers 

With its custom drivers and floorstanding design, the Debut F5 is a great choice for a serious two-channel rig or as the nucleus of a multi-channel setup. Add a Debut powered subwoofer and you have a serious, full-range system that delivers sound that's in the big league.

DEBUT SERIES FEATURES

ELAC custom designed woofer with aramid-fiber cone

CUSTOM-DESIGNED WOOFER 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.

SILK-DOME TWEETER WITH DEEP-SPHEROID CUSTOM WAVEGUIDE

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.

Deep-Spheroid Custom Waveguide

A custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile is utilized to improve directivity control and shield the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction.

INTRICATE CROSSOVERS

A custom multi-element crossover with high-grade components in each speaker ensures smooth transition between the drivers.

ROBUST CABINETS

ROBUST CABINETS 

Every ELAC enclosure is engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious textured vinyl finish. The cabinets of the F5 floorstander, the C5 center channel, the S10EQ and S12EQ subwoofers incorporate specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibration, which causes unwanted coloration to the sound. ELAC believes that the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.

SUPERIOR BUILD QUALITY

Count the parts and look at them closely. These don’t look like the components that go in such competitively-priced speakers, but rather, speakers that cost much more.
