Wonderful speakers

Paul from North Port, FL on 4/9/2021

These speakers continue to delight me, they perform well beyond my expectation at their price point. The listening experience is exception and makes me smile every time. They have a transparent sound that neve fatigues. The highs are quick, crisp, and sparkle. Gotta love that ribbon technology. Midrange is smooth and satisfying. Bass is tight, well defined and extends lower than I had expected. They punch far beyond their price point and are easy on the eyes. They have about 100 listening hours on them and seem to continue to improve. Bottom line: WOW!

Pros: Sound Looks

Cons: None

I owned a pair of polk audio sda2a speakers for roughly 35 years and added a svs subwoofer a few years ago really wanting that deep bass I crave for pipe organ music. I liked what i had for all these years but was yearning a cleaner high end sound. The reviews on the jet tweeters of the Carina speakers convinced me to bite the bullet and get these. I went for the floor standing model for the deep base they were spec'd at. When I received them and hooked them up I was stunned. The clarity and deep rich base took me aback. There was an emotional level that I had not experienced from speakers before. My wife was also impressed, which is hard to do. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Pros: deep solid bass, seamless transparent highs.

Cons: a grill would be nice.

I really enjoy these speakers. Very nice finish, clean and slim design, pleasing performance. Compared to my prior 6.5" bookshelves plus 8" sub in a medium small room, the sound these Carina produce is clearer and has more definition at all frequencies, has more bass punch and significantly more bass definition than my 8" sub has, and extends even lower. How ... I don't know, but it's great. In a word they just sound "cohesive" top to bottom. Great ribbon tweeters. Very pleased with this purchase.

Carina FS247.4 Review

Crutchfield customer from Houston, TX on 12/6/2020

These are fantastic speakers! Very warm, accurate and lifelike. I'm powering them with a NAD C268, which provides plenty of power with virtually no distortion. The first song I played was Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix. My friend, who was with me, commented that it sounded like he was playing the guitar in my living room. I thought the same thing. The sound stand is truly amazing! Coming from a set of Klipsch RF 62ii towers, these are a worthy upgrade. The ribbon tweeter in the Carina towers is not nearly as bright and fatiguing as the horn tweeter from the former Klipsch towers. I was worried the bass may be a bit weak, but my fears quickly subsided. The midrange and low range pack a punch and provide excellent definition and crispness. I have been listening hours on end the past few days and they keep sounding better and better. I also bought matching Carina center and bookshelf surrounds for HT. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend!

Excellent asset to be part of classical music surroundings

My 4-star rating is just to its packaging workmanship; there are visible fingerprints or palmprints on the speakers. I hope my comment could improve manufacture's quality assurance in procedures or processes. I am unpacking and setting up the speakers, and will give performance reviews late on when I am able to. Thanks for ELAC the excellent piece of design that makes it a valuable asset to the classical music surroundings, and the great customer services from CrutchField, as well!

This speaker is amazing. I am still waiting for the second one which is on backorder which tells you how wanted these speakers are. An audiophile friend recommended these speakers and Crutchfield confirmed my friends recommendations. Chatting with Stone and the crew at Crutchfield and finding out Andrew Young, (the designer of these speakers) actually visited Crutchfield and showcased them with the crew at Crutchfield, helped me with the decision to buy them. Along with the Carina Center and bookshelf speakers, running through my A2080 receiver, I put on Dark Side of the Moon remastered album from Alan Parsons, and it brought me to tears on how beautiful of a sound these speakers put out. And they are still in the break in phase. Thanks Stone and the crew at Crutchfield for the time you took to help me with my purchase.

Pros: Amazing sound

Cons: Cant think of any
