About the ELAC Debut 2.0 F5.2

Kramer Crane

A slender tower with huge sound

ELAC's original Debut F5 floor-standing speaker was a huge hit with our customers. The newly designed Debut 2.0 F5.2 offers the same high level of performance in a taller, slimmer cabinet. It also sports an improved 1" silk dome tweeter for extended high-frequency response, and a trio of updated 5-1/4" aramid-fiber woofers for smooth mids and punchy bass.

"Very loud and clear"

"For the money you can't beat this tower speaker. The lows are very awesome and the mids come through great. The tweeter handles the clear, loud highs very well.”

— Douglas, a happy Crutchfield customer from Cleveland, Tennessee

Custom-built for excellent sound

Fans of ELAC know that renowned speaker designer Andrew Jones has been at the helm of the Debut series since the beginning. Jones himself designs the magnets, woofers, crossovers, and enclosures for each Debut speaker, which allows for high-quality components without the added cost of outsourcing parts and supplies.

A high-quality crossover directs traffic  

One of the F5.2's performance secrets is its custom-designed multi-element crossover. Jones uses this important component to ensure smooth frequency distribution between each of the drivers. The result is full, natural sound from a floor-stander that won't wreak havoc on your budget. Use a pair of the F5.2s as part of a great-sounding stereo or Debut 2.0 Series home theater system.

Product Research


Three-Way Driver Design: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DF52 floorstanding loudspeaker features a three-way driver design with a 1" tweeter, one 5.25" midrange drive, two 5.25" bass woofers, and a 90Hz/2200Hz crossover network. The tweeter, midrange driver, and woofers 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 Woofers: The floorstanding speaker features three 5.25" woven aramid-fiber cone woofers (1 midrange driver/2 bass woofers) 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 nine-element crossover (90Hz/2200Hz) with audio-grade components is implemented to ensure smooth transition between the tweeter, midrange driver, and bass woofers.

Bass Reflex MDF Cabinet: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DF52 floorstanding loudspeaker uses a bass reflex cabinet with three rear-firing flared ports for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. 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 DF52 floorstanding 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).

Spike Feet: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DF52 floorstanding loudspeaker features an integrated plinth (base) and comes with 4 spike feet. The spikes screw into the the speaker cabinet's integrated plinth (base). The spike feet work great on carpeted flooring. You should place protective discs (not included) under the spikes, if you are placing the speaker on hardwood or tile flooring (no rubber feet are included).

  • Dimensions with Spike Feet: 7.4375" (w) x 41.0625" (h) x 10.25" (d)
  • Dimensions without Spike Feet: 7.4375" (w) x 40.1875" (h) x 10.25" (d)

Note: There is a pre-installed safety clip on the back of the speaker cabinet for securing the floorstanding speaker to a wall to prevent tip-over. Wall-mount hook, screws, and cord are all sold separately and can be found at your local hardware store.

Applications: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DF52 floorstanding 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.
Note: In either application, the speaker 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.

Elac Debut 2.0 Series: The Elac Debut 2.0 series family of loudspeakers consists of two floorstanding loudspeakers (DF52/DF62), two bookshelf loudspeakers (DB52/DB62), two center-channel loudspeakers (DC52/DC62), a Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeaker (DA42), and two powered subs (S10EQ/S12EQ).

Customer Q&A

3 questions already asked

Your listing for the ELAC Debut 2.0 F5.2 states "$349.98 each." Is this price for each speaker, (so it would be $700 per pair)? Or $350 for each pair of speakers?
[ hoodjem  Jul 01, 2021 ]

$350 is only for. one speaker, so $700 for the pair.
[ TENZING  Jul 02, 2021 ]
Speakers at this price range are usually sold individually and pricing makes it clear each... You may wish to wait to purchase as I bought mine on sale and saved almost 30% on a pair..Very pleased with ELAC and using a earlier purchase of the original B5 bookshelf for my HT rears
[ JOSE  Jul 02, 2021 ]
Price is for one speaker.
[ PEDRO  Jul 02, 2021 ]
That would be $349.98 per each individual speaker. So, yes, ~ $700 per pair.
[ JAMES M  Jul 02, 2021 ]
Hi, can I drive these speakers with a Cambridge Audio AXA35? Thanks
[ FERNANDO  May 03, 2020 ]

That amplifier will power the F5.2 fine at low to moderate listening levels.
[ JASON  May 04, 2020 ]
Interesting to note is that Elac only identifies max power of 140 watts but no minimum power requirements. However, these are 6 ohm speakers which should help your 35 watt amp. I think it would be possible...great speakers by the way........
[ Roger  May 03, 2020 ]
I am running mine on Denon AVR-x3400h 105 watts. The speakers that I had there before I could go to 60% volume and they were loud so I could hear them through the whole house. With the Elac I have to turn the am up higher to get the same loudness, but I can tell you these are way clearer
[ juan  May 03, 2020 ]
Sorry. Not familiar with the Cambridge Audio specs.. I do love my Elac speakers tho. Mike
[ CARL  May 03, 2020 ]
Hi. I want to buy the ELAC Debut 2.0 F5.2 Floorstanding 3-Way Speaker but I'm wondering the package size? As I'm almost leaving the USA I need to know the size of the package to be sure it will fit the standard of my cargo company. Thanks in advance.
[ Marcelo  Jun 03, 2019 ]

The size of the shipping box is 46 x 16.5 x 12 inches.
[ Charles  Jun 04, 2019 ]
The box for EACH speaker is 46 inches tall and 16 inches wide and 12 inches depth. Thanks
[ ERNEST  Jun 03, 2019 ]
Hi Marcelo, those are great speakers, but I'm not sure of the actual box size, as mine are long gone. But the box is a little larger than the speaker, so you may estimate, or call Elac, I'm sure they will know,
[ Roger  Jun 03, 2019 ]
I still have the boxes these were shipped in so I do have the exact measurements. 12"x16"x46"
[ NEIL  Jun 03, 2019 ]
The speaker comes double-boxed. The outer box is 45"x16"x12". The inner box would of course only be fractions different if you would choose just to use a single box.
