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 other ELAC 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. One handles the midrange frequency range while the other covers bass frequencies. These cones feature a "compound curvature" shape that helps control cone breakup and moves it beyond the driver'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.

Features

JET Folded Air-Motion-Transformer: The Carina Series center-channel loudspeaker (CC241.4) employs Elac's JET folded air-motion-transformer tweeter design for transparent and effortless high-frequency imaging. This JET folded ribbon tweeter delivers high-definition sound with a wider frequency and lots of headroom due to its lightning-fast response, wide dynamic range, and minimal distortion.

Compound Curvature Aluminum Woofer: The Elac Carina Series center-channel loudspeaker (CC241.4) houses two 5.25" compound curvature aluminum cone woofers for smooth midbass and rich bass frequencies. To match the capabilities of the JET tweeter and guarantee a seamless transition from the woofer to the JET tweeter, the compound curvature aluminum cone has been developed to control the cone breakup and move it well beyond the operating range of the woofer. A large diameter voice coil and over-sized vented pole piece magnet combine to give remarkable bass dynamics and a rich powerful performance.

Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Elac Carina Series center-channel loudspeaker (CC241.4) utilizes a bass reflex enclosure with dual rear-firing ports that offer enhanced bass response and minimal ventilation noise.

Note: The Elac Carina Series loudspeaker enclosure does not include a grille.

Dual Binding Posts: The Elac Carina Series center-channel loudspeaker (CC241.4) is outfitted with two sets of heavy-duty binding posts allowing to bi-amp or bi-wire the center-channel loudspeaker. These binding posts ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-lugs and bare wire (up to 10AWG).

  • Bi-Wiring: Bi-wiring can provide noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers. Run separate speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier (the upper set of binding posts are for the high frequency drivers; the lower set of binding posts are for the low frequency drivers).
  • Bi-Amping: Bi-amping allows you to use separate amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for greater dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your separate amplifiers have identical gain to preserve the speaker's voicing balance.
Note: If you decide to bi-wire or bi-amp, you must remove the jumpers between the terminal posts (failure to do this could result in damage to your amplifier and loudspeakers).

Placement & Mounting Options: The center-channel speaker should be placed directly above or below the center of your TV screen. It can rest on a flat surface like a table top, shelf, or stand. Try to keep the center-channel as close to the same level as your front speakers for a more even soundstage. If this is not possible, you might try tilting the center speaker up (if too low) or down (if too high) to aim it towards the listening area. The speaker should be positioned approximately 1' to 2' away from boundaries, such as walls or corners. Integrated rubber feet help to isolate the speaker from the mounting surface and protect your mounting surface from scratches.

Note: The center speaker does not offer any bracket, keyhole slot, or threaded insert to wall mount the loudspeaker.

Carina Series: The Elac Carina Series consists of a floorstanding loudspeaker, bookshelf loudspeaker, and center-channel loudspeaker (all sold separately). The Carina Series by Elac delivers effortless, transparent sound with a wide frequency range and wide dynamic range for a true high-resolution audio experience.

Optional Powered Subwoofer: Add an Elac powered subwoofer (sold separately) to the Carina series to bring more bass to your movie and music soundtracks.
