Three-Way Driver Design: The Elac Debut 2.0 series DF52
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
- 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
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
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
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),

and two powered subs (S10EQ/S12EQ).
