Price-to-Performance Breakthrough ELAC Debut F5 Tower Loudspeaker Custom-Designed by Andrew Jones: Incredible Sound and Technical Prowess at an Unprecedentedly Low Cost
If there was the equivalent of a blind taste test for loudspeakers, the ELAC Debut F5 tower loudspeaker would be most people's choice. Created by world-renowned designer Andrew Jones, the same mind that created iconic audio equipment at TAD/Pioneer, the 2.5-way bass-reflex Debut F5 offers a combination of advanced technical prowess, lively edge-of-your-seat sound, and supreme build quality for a price the high-end has never seen. Jones' involvement is alone worth the cost, but with Debut F5, you get so much more. A brace-sectioned MDF cabinet. Tweeter and midrange/bass drivers custom-designed by Jones. A 5.25-inch woven aramid-fiber woofer with oversized magnets and vented pole pieces. A deep-spheroid tweeter waveguide for improved directivity. A cloth-dome tweeter and customized eight-element crossover. No, your eyes aren't deceiving you: Debut F5 sells for under $600 a pair. It defies logic. All we can say is your ears will tell you everything else you need to know. 100% Money-Back Guaranteed.
"Their performance is impressive without reference to price, while their value rating is off the charts, and even right off the paper. Any speaker shoppers as careful of their dimes as their dollars must audition the ELAC speakers. Highly recommended!"

Braced MDF Cabinet Minimizes Vibrations, Aramid-Fiber Cones Add Strength and Smoothness
Two vertical braces strengthen and stiffen the cabinet, helping minimize unwanted vibrations that can discolor music or movie content. Woven aramid fiber offers a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and damping over common polypropylene or paper cones. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended frequency response.
Andrew Jones-Designed Drivers Match Intricate Crossover, Spheroid Waveguide
Andrew Jones custom-designed both the tweeter and bass driver to deliver an exceptional audio experience that can't be delivered with typical off-the-shelf parts. A custom crossover with audio-grade components ensures smooth transition between drivers. In addition, a custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile improves directivity control and shields the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction.
