Three-Way Driver Design: The Elac Debut F6 floorstanding
loudspeaker features a three-way driver design with a 1" tweeter, one 6.5"
midrange drive, two 6.5" bass woofers, and a 100Hz/3000Hz 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 Elac Debut F6
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 Woofers: The floorstanding speaker
features three 6.5" woven aramid-fiber cone woofers (1 midrange
driver/2 bass woofers) 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 nine-element crossover
(100Hz/3,000Hz) 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 F6 floorstanding
loudspeaker uses a bass reflex cabinet with three rear-firing flared ports for
greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The tweeter and midrange driver are
isolated from the rest of the speaker cabinet. The cabinet is made of MDF (Medium
Density Fiberboard) with two horizontal braces 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.
5-Way Binding Posts: The Elac Debut F6 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).
Rubber or Spike Feet: The Elac Debut F6 floorstanding loudspeaker
features integrated rubber feet for safe placement on hardwood, laminate, vinyl,
and tile floors. Four spike feet are also included for secure placement on
carpeted flooring. The spikes screw into the bottom of the speaker's rubber feet
and add approximately 0.875" of height to the speaker.
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 F6 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 Series: The Elac Debut series family of
loudspeakers consists of two bookshelf speakers, two floorstanding speaker, a
center-channel speaker, a Dolby Atmos enabled speaker, and two powered subs.
