More Musicality, Coherency, Detail, Liveliness, Low-End Responsiveness, and Smoothness: High-Value ELAC Debut 2.0 F5.2 Tower Loudspeaker Is a Natural Evolution of Acclaimed Engineering
Call it the natural evolution of things. A recipient of The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice Award, the ELAC Debut 2.0 F5.2 tower loudspeaker represents what can happen when a forward-looking company and world-renowned designer keep pushing for more. More musicality. More coherency. More low-end responsiveness. More tonal truth. More smoothness. More of the detail, accuracy, and liveliness you want to hear from your favorite recordings. More of the advanced engineering that has turned designer Andrew Jones an industry celebrity. All at a shockingly modest price that stands to again send shock waves through the audio industry.
Debut 2.0 F5.2 counts multiple improvements and brand-new components that make such beguiling performance possible. It's hard to miss the two custom 5.25-inch woven aramid-fiber woofers and 5.25-inch midrange driver, notable for an updated shape that allows for greater stiffness and damping – and, by extension, more extended and taut bass reproduction. A new silk-dome one-inch tweeter with wide-roll surround ups responsiveness to up to 35,000Hz to deliver incredible high-frequency sound. The wide-dispersion waveguide improves directivity control and eliminates diffraction modes inherent to conventional box designs. The internally braced MDF cabinets step up their game, too, with thicker and stronger panels that further reduce vibration and coloration.
Does it all seem too good to be true? We want you to decide for yourself. To put Debut 2.0 F5.2 to the test, we invite you to audition these speakers in your own home and hear for yourself just how far $599.98 really goes.

“While not flawless, the F5 is as faultless as a speaker is likely to get in this price.”

Brand-New Silk-Dome Tweeter and Wide-Dispersion Waveguide
A new silk-dome tweeter features a wide-roll surround and takes response up to 35,000Hz for even more lifelike high frequencies. The waveguide improves directivity control and eliminates the diffraction modes inherent in traditional box enclosures.
Redesigned Woven Aramid-Fiber Woofer
The revised shape of the aramid cone offers even greater stiffness and damping, far superior to polypropylene or paper. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended low-frequency response.
Smarter Cabinet Construction
Thick MDF cabinets with a luxurious black ash vinyl finish are larger and internally braced for greater stiffness and strength, greatly reducing cabinet vibrations that cause unwanted coloration.
