Two-Way Driver Design: The Elac Debut B6 bookshelf
loudspeaker features a two-way driver design with a 1" tweeter, one 6.5"
woofer, and a 3,000Hz 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 Elac Debut B6
features a 1" cloth dome tweeter with a custom-designed waveguide with a
deep spheroid profile. This waveguide design is utilized to improve
directivity control and shield the tweeter from cabinet diffraction.
- Woven-Aramid Fiber Woofer: The bookshelf speaker
features a single 6.5" woven aramid-fiber cone woofer with rubber surround,
oversized magnet, and vented pole piece. Woven aramid fiber offers a
superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and damping over common polypropylene or
paper cones. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve
a smoother, extended frequency response.
- Custom Crossover: A custom seven-element crossover
(3,000Hz) with audio-grade components is implemented to ensure smooth
transition between the tweeter and woofer.
Bass Reflex MDF Cabinet: The Elac Debut B6 bookshelf
loudspeaker uses a bass reflex cabinet with a rear-firing flared port 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 textured vinyl
black finish. A detachable cloth grille is included.

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).

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
- 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
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
