The Debut B6 takes the incredible B5 sound profile and adds an extra dollop of bass and dynamic range, making this 2-way, bass-reflex design a stand-out choice for multi-channel systems and critical music listeners seeking a superb bookshelf speaker that packs real performance and punch.
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.
Tweeter, Waveguide & Crossover
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. A custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile is utilized to improve directivity control and shield the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction. A custom multi-element crossover with high-grade components in each speaker ensures smooth transition between the drivers.
Cabinet & Construction
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. 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.
