Great Sound, Compact Size, Inviting Affordability: Andrew Jones-Designed ELAC Debut B4 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Offers Pristine Clarity and Stop-You-In-Your-Tracks Imaging
Few, if any, budget-minded high-end bookshelf loudspeakers combine the compact size, compelling sound, and across-the-board affordability into a package as attractive as the ELAC Debut B4 bookshelf loudspeaker. The vision of legendary audio designer Andrew Jones, the very same of TAD/Pioneer fame, Debut B4 supplies genuine audiophile performance for a price that the industry has never seen. That tiny price tag above isn't a misprint. If you're looking for a speaker that comfortably fits in almost any environment but doesn't sacrifice on sound, Debut B4 rises to the top of the field. Reproducing music with exceptional clarity and playing with spot-on imaging,
Debut B4 touts Jones-designed custom drivers, woven aramid-fiber woofers with oversized magnets and vented pole pieces, a custom seven-element crossover, and a deep-spheroid custom waveguide. Debut B4 simply defies what music listeners are accustomed to not only getting in a bookshelf model, but getting in any product that costs anywhere near this price. Not to mention the expertise, acumen, and cutting-edge engineering skills wrought by Jones.
Custom-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.
