ELAC Debut C5 Center Channel Speaker (Ea)

ELAC Debut C5 Center-Channel Loudspeaker Lays Out Sound in Panoramic Landscapes: Andrew Jones-Designed Drivers, 5.25-Inch Woofers, and Customized Parts Spur High-Value Performance

With drivers custom-designed by Adam Jones, whose renewed audio prowess left a permanent imprint at TAD/Pioneer, the ELAC Debut C5 center-channel loudspeaker treats sound as panoramic landscapes imploring to be laid out in detailed, vivid, and transparent fashion before your eyes. Able to seamlessly mate with main and surround speakers in a multichannel setup, Debut C5 offers formidable, lifelike performance that puts film dialog and music information exactly where it needs to be in the soundstage.

Defying its low cost, Debut C5 owes its sonic abilities to Jones' expertise and a range of high-end parts, features, and build-quality characteristics never before available at this price. A one-inch cloth tweeter, two 5.25-inch woven aramid-fiber woofers with oversized magnets and vented pole pieces, a deep-spheroid custom waveguide, and a custom six-element crossover for smooth transition between drivers complement a stiffened, vertically braced MDF cabinet that eliminates unwanted vibrations. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Backed by Music Direct's Money-Back Guarantee, Debut C5 helps give you the best seat in the house.

Braced MDF Cabinet Minimizes Vibrations, Aramid-Fiber Cones Add Strength and Smoothness:

Two vertical braces strengthen and stiffen the cabinet, helping minimize unwanted vibrations that can discolor music or movie content. 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.

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.
