Re-Engineered Drivers, Crossovers, and Cabinets Elevate Value and Performance of ELAC Uni-Fi 2.0 UF52: Andrew Jones-Designed Tower Loudspeaker Provides Big, Alluring Sound
The buzzword when it comes to the Andrew Jones-designed ELAC Uni-Fi 2.0 UF52 tower loudspeaker is "new." New as in completely re-engineered drivers, crossovers, and cabinets. New in terms of sensory experiences that go beyond those offered by its acclaimed predecessor. New regarding its freshly revised technologies that enhance its compatibility, performance, and flexibility even in the largest spaces. New as in setting another standard of operation, value, and quality that make the 43.34-pound unit to one of high-end audio's greatest deals for the cost.
Composed and non-fatiguing, Uni-Fi 2.0 UF52 plays music with alluring clarity, openness, smoothness, and extension. Its precision, imaging, and dynamic attributes stem from both the bass-reflex three-way architecture and new in-house-developed concentric driver – in which the combination of a wide-surround, one-inch soft-dome tweeter and rigid, four-inch midrange complete with a large-diameter voice coil, aluminum cone profile, innovative neodymium magnet assembly, and low-profile surround for reduced diffraction – that yields uniform directivity, generous power handling, and excellent frequency response. As for those three 5.25-inch woofers? All comprised of single-piece aluminum dished cone for requisite stiffness and paired with oversized magnets and extended pole pieces for standout bass and accuracy.
Reconsidering every key parameter, Jones and company also developed a three-way crossover that provides exceptional linearity and a true six-ohm nominal impedance for interfacing with practically any AV receiver. Such user-friendly convenience and science-tested sonics amount to a 38.58 x 7.28 x 10.83-inch (HWD) instrument that achieves a uniform directivity pattern along with engaging imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions. Add to its smart internal components thick CARB2-rated MDF outer walls, internal bracing to reduce cabinet vibration, an outrigger base with feet for stability, and custom-designed five-way binding posts, and Uni-Fi 2.0 UF52 has practically everything going for it – including our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
Brand New Custom-Designed Concentric Driver
A new wide-surround tweeter enhances low- and high-frequency extension, allowing for improved blending with the midrange driver. An entirely new midrange design features a larger diameter voice coil, new aluminum cone profile, new low-profile surround, and an all-new neodymium magnet assembly.
Newly Developed 5.25-Inch Aluminum Woofer
A newly developed single piece aluminum dished cone results in improved stiffness. Combined with an oversized magnet, large diameter voice coil, and extended pole piece, these changes result in improved accuracy and bass dynamics.
An enhanced design improves response linearity, improves driver integration and delivers a true 6-ohm nominal impedance for compatibility with virtually all AV receivers.
Every Uni-Fi 2.0 enclosure is engineered with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious black ash vinyl finish. Specially located internal bracing adds stiffness and strength to the cabinet's outer walls, reducing the cabinet vibration that causes unwanted coloration.
Supplied Base and Feet
An outrigger base design provides a larger, more stable footprint and allows optimum coupling of the speaker cabinet to the floor.
