Stellar Home-Theater Performance: Designed by Andrew Jones With Refined Cabinets and Matte-Satin Finishes, the ELAC Uni-Fi CC U5 Slim Center-Channel Loudspeaker Is a Seamless Center Stage 

Make your surround-sound and home-theater setup sing with the ELAC Uni-Fi CC U5 Slim center-channel loudspeaker. Designed by Andrew Jones and tailored to seamlessly pair with the Uni-Fi FS U5 Slim tower and BS U5 Slim bookshelf speakers, Uni-Fi CC U5 Slim features the same advanced driver and crossover components as its bigger siblings. You'll experience vocals, effects, and dialog with incredible clarity and take-you-there timing. And that's to say nothing of the accommodating slim-line design, gorgeous rounded cabinets, and luxurious, hand-painted matte-satin finish. The key to Uni-Fi CC U5 Slim's best-in-class performance resides with the in-house-developed concentric driver, which enhances precision, coherency, and responsiveness. With the one-inch soft-dome tweeter and four-inch midrange in a single voice coil, Uni-Fi CC U5 Slim excels in the areas of power handling and directivity. A pair of 5.25-inch woofers provide the low-end slam, and its crossover touts audiophile-grade components for seamless transitions between frequency ranges. The cabinet, too, is built to last and internally braced, while five-way binding posts ensure tight connections to speaker cables. Backed by our Money-Back Guarantee, Uni-Fi UC5 makes having a great surround system in your house simple and affordable.

Usually Only Found in Costlier Designs: Custom-Made Concentric Driver

Just like they do in the sister Uni-Fi FS U5 Slim tower and complementary bookshelf speakers, the delicacy of a one-inch soft-dome tweeter and harmonic accuracy of a rigid four-inch aluminum midrange cone come together in a sonic symphony in Uni-Fi CC U5 Slim. Positioning the tweeter concentrically within the midrange voice coil achieves a uniform directivity pattern, for flat frequency response and formidable power handling, along with enhanced imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions.

Three-Way Design and Two 5.25-Inch Woofers for Excellent Soundstaging
ELAC realizes a three-way speaker offers many advantages. In assigning dedicated drivers to high, mid- and bass frequencies, each is optimized for the frequency range for which its design and material composition is best suited. A three-way speaker complement also allows for a more straightforward crossover and cabinet design, eliminating costly solutions. By using aluminum for the woofer, resonances that affect the linearity of common paper cones are placed beyond the driver's operating frequency range. An extended-size magnet with vented pole piece increases power handling for accurate, clean, and powerful reproduction of bass frequencies.

Differences Between Uni-Fi and Uni-Fi Slim: Enclosures, Cabinets, and Finishes
Uni-Fi Slim enclosures are narrower, taller, and deeper than the original Uni-Fi Series, the latter engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls. Yet each maintains the same internal volume, resulting in sonic characteristics indistinguishable from the originals. The cabinets 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 the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers. The other difference that distinguishes Uni-Fi Slim is the elegant matte-satin paint finish of the outer cabinets. Instead of being wrapped in black brushed vinyl like the original Uni-Fi, Uni-Fi Slim upgrades the appearance and feel with a durable surface that's as elegant as it is durable.
