ELAC Debut B6 Bookshelf Loudspeakers
Custom-Designed by Andrew Jones, ELAC Debut B6 Provides Astounding Price-to-Performance Value and Looks Terrific: Acclaimed Bookshelf Loudspeaker Plays With Serious Punch, Genuine Bass, Standout Dynamics
Acclaimed audio designer Andrew Jones doesn't just raise the bar on price-to-performance bookshelf loudspeaker value with the ELAC Debut B6. He makes it almost unreachable. Jones, who established an enviable pedigree at TAD/Pioneer, brings to the ELAC Debut line the same brand of technical smarts and stellar sonics at a price that practically anyone can afford. The high-quality parts, engineering expertise, and customized arrays in the two-way Debut B6 cannot be found anywhere else for this cost. It's that simple.
Once you hear Debut B6 used either as a main in a small system or a surround in a multichannel setup, you'll know exactly why this speaker is so special. It hits with serious punch, genuine bass, and standout dynamics. Jones custom-designed the tweeter and bass drivers in Debut B6, which also boasts a 6.5-inch woven aramid-fiber woofer with oversized magnets and vented pole pieces. A cloth-dome tweeter, deep-spheroid waveguide, customized seven-element crossover, and handsome looks courtesy of the black finish, seal the deal.
“The rare achievement of true audiophile quality at a low price. Speaker shoppers always want bargains -- speakers that blow away the competition at a rock bottom price without sacrificing quality. The ELAC Debut B6 is that speaker. It's a stunning achievement.”
- Steve Guttenberg, CNET, five-star rating
“The great thing about this speaker is that it covers its tracks well; anything you play through it fast becomes a musical event and not an exercise in analytical listening. This is a rare trick to pull off, even for a high-end speaker.”

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.
