About the ELAC Carina CC241.4

Striking looks, breathtaking sound

When ELAC visited Crutchfield recently for training, their demos focused on 2-channel music — they didn't have the Carina CC241.4 center channel speaker to show us. But we got to hear the bookshelf model BS243.4, which stunned the roomful of listeners with its clear, punchy sound. ELAC's designer, Andrew Jones, is known for creating speakers with tremendous bang for the buck, so we're looking forward to hearing the CC241.4.

ELAC's JET-powered tweeter

Instead of the concentric tweeter/midrange combo found in ELAC's Uni-Fi and Adante speakers, the Carina series features ELAC's famous JET folded-ribbon tweeter, used in some of the company's most expensive speakers. The tweeter element is extremely thin and lightweight, and suspended in a magnetic field, so it's able to accelerate with incredible speed, to reproduce the subtlest soundtrack details. 

Advanced drivers and dual ports deliver impact

That JET tweeter is flanked by two 5-1/4" aluminum-cone drivers. The upper one handles the upper midrange, and because it's physically closest to the tweeter, provides a seamless blend of mid and high frequencies. The lower one covers the bass frequencies.

These cones feature a "compound curvature" shape that helps control cone breakup and moves it beyond the woofer's operating frequency range. A large-diameter voice coil precisely controls each cone's motion, contributing to this speaker's exceptionally dynamic sound.

Unusually, the CC241.4 has two rear-firing bass-reflex ports, to help the speaker deliver the punch that dynamic soundtracks demand.
