Two-Way Driver Design: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DB52 bookshelf
loudspeaker features a two-way driver design with a 1" tweeter, one 5.25"
woofer, and a 2,200Hz crossover. Both the tweeter and woofer have been custom
designed by Andrew Jones to deliver an exceptional audio experience that can't
be delivered with typical off-the-shelf parts
- Cloth Dome Tweeter w/ Wave Guide: The 1" silk soft-dome
tweeter features a wide-roll surround that improves power handling and a
waveguide that improves directivity control by eliminating cabinet
diffraction inherent in traditional box enclosures. The 1" silk soft-dome
tweeter candle handle high frequencies up to 35,000 Hz.
- Woven-Aramid Fiber Woofer: The bookshelf speaker
features a single 5.25" woven aramid-fiber cone woofer with rubber surround,
oversized magnet, and vented pole piece. 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.
- Custom Crossover: A custom seven-element crossover
(2,200Hz) with audio-grade components is implemented to ensure smooth
transition between the tweeter and woofer.
Bass Reflex MDF Cabinet: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DB52 bookshelf
loudspeaker uses a bass reflex cabinet with a front-firing flared port for
greater efficiency and bigger bass response. Moving the bass port to the front
of the cabinet means placement against walls or in bookshelves won't compromise
performance. The cabinet is made of MDF (Medium
Density Fiberboard) to strengthen and stiffen the cabinet, helping minimize
unwanted vibrations that can discolor music or movie content. The MDF outer
walls of the cabinet are covered with a black ash wood-grain vinyl finish. A
detachable cloth grille is included.
5-Way Binding Posts: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DB52 bookshelf loudspeaker
is fitted with a set of 5-way binding-post terminals which will accept bare-wire
(up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single or dual).
Applications: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DB52 bookshelf loudspeaker can be
used in a 2ch stereo application, or used as your front speakers and/or rear
surround speakers in a multichannel home theater application.
- 2Ch Stereo or Front Speaker Placement: For optimum
stereo imaging, place the speakers so that an equilateral triangle is
created between the speakers your main listening position. You can also
angle ("toe in") the speakers towards the listening position to gain a more
focused central image.
- Rear Surround Placement: In a 5.1channel surround
setup, avoid placing the speakers forward of your listening position. The
speakers should be spread apart wider than the front speakers. In addition,
try to elevate the speakers to the same height or slightly higher as the
front speakers for the most enveloping soundfield.
Note: In either application, the speakers should be placed
1' to 2' away from boundaries such as wall and corners. Close proximity to a
side or rear wall will enhance bass performance, but being too close may
result in bass that is unnatural.
Mounting Options: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DB52 bookshelf
loudspeaker can simply be placed on a flat surface; like a table-top, stand, or
shelf. The bookshelf speaker does not include a bracket, key-hole slot, or
threaded insert for wall-mounting. However, you can wall-mount the DB52 speaker
using the PinPoint side-clamping bracket (sold separately - see Accessories
