The Biggest Loudspeaker in the ELAC Debut 2.0 Series Plays with Cost-Belying Dynamics, Detail, and Openness: Debut 2.0 F6.2 Tower Features Three 6.25-Inch Drivers and Newly Devised Tweeter
No excuses. It's what you want from a flagship tower loudspeaker, particularly when that flagship happens to be the ELAC Debut 2.0 F6.2 – the biggest and boldest in the designer Andrew Jones' knockout Debut 2.0 Series. How is Debut 2.0 F6.2 superior to its acclaimed predecessor, Debut F6? In every facet. No mere cosmetic makeover, Debut F6.2 touts improvements stemming from the revised mold of its drivers to the construction of its cabinets down to the location of its bass ports. In short, these floorstanders play with a level of openness, responsiveness, detail, dynamics, and naturalism that belies their cost.
A quick glance at Debut 2.0 F6.2 tells you it doesn't back down. Two custom 6.25-inch woven aramid-fiber woofers and a 6.25-inch midrange driver, notable for their new shape that allows for greater stiffness and damping – and, by extension, more extended and tauter bass – present music with immersive scale, separation, and soundstaging. A new silk-dome one-inch tweeter with wide-roll surround ups responsiveness to up to 35,000Hz to deliver high frequencies with stunning accuracy and balance. An updated wide-dispersion waveguide improves directivity control and eliminates diffraction modes inherent to conventional box designs. The internally braced MDF cabinets do more, too, with thicker panels that further reduce vibration and coloration.
Taken as a whole, the combination of high-quality parts, Jones' brilliant engineering, and sonic prowess elevate Debut 2.0 F6.2 to heights few – if any – tower loudspeakers have ever reached at its affordable price point.

“The ELAC Debut 2.0 F6.2 is a phenomenal speaker. And I don't just mean a phenomenal speaker for $400. It's a phenomenal speaker that just so happens to sell for $400. If you're looking for an incredibly detailed, incredibly revealing speaker with sumptuous imaging and delicious depth that won't break the bank, I seriously recommend putting it on your list of speakers to audition.”

“Just when you thought Andrew Jones and ELAC couldn't do better, they went like six levels better to take these flagship tower speakers to insane-land. This is a shark-infested part of the speaker market but ELAC is swimming inside of one of those steel cages with this design. Detail is through the roof and imaging is just sumptuous.”

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.
