This Floorstanding Speaker was developed from the renowned award winning 240 series.
Building on the 240's performance, the Carina engages ELAC’s tradition of utilizing the JET tweeter, chosen for its amazing clarity, dynamics and attack.
To match this capability, Andrew Jones developed a proprietary compound curvature aluminum coned woofer that seamlessly blends via a sophisticated multi-element xover to produce an organic life like sound experience.
Fresh looks, fresh sound.
Jet Folded Ribbon Tweeter Delivers True High-Definition Sound, ELAC’s JET tweeters enthrall with its lightning-fast response and wide dynamic range, offering minimal distortion, lots of headroom and a wider frequency range. The ELAC JET tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in the industry and has won international praise with its transparent and effortless sound image
Sophisticated Compound Curvature Aluminum Woofer To match the capabilities of the JET tweeter and guarantee a seamless transition from the woofer to the JET tweeter, the compound curvature cone has been developed to control the cone breakup and move it well beyond the operating range of the woofer. A large diameter voice coil and oversized vented pole piece magnet combine to give remarkable bass dynamics and a rich powerful performance.
Downward Firing Ports For a more flexible speaker placement and to minimize ventilation noise, the bass reflex port on the Carina series is directed to the floor, exiting the bottom of the speaker cabinet in a down-firing configuration.
