Less is More
The B4 4" Debut Series Bookshelf Speakers harness the performance of Debut's larger 2-way, bass-reflex bookshelf speakers and deliver it up in a compact enclosure that will have you guessing how they got such an accurate, life-like sound from such a tiny box. Use these speakers as the perfect two-channel solution for smaller rooms, or as the building blocks for a compact surround-sound home entertainment system.
The ELAC Debut Series is 100-percent designed by Andrew Jones at ELAC’s dedicated Southern California engineering facility. Debut includes bookshelf, floor-standing, center-channel and Dolby Atmos-enabled models, complemented by a full range of powered subwoofers. Each one will change your expectations about affordable loudspeakers forever, and each model in the Debut series establishes a value proposition—with build quality and spectacular performance—that goes beyond every other speaker in its class.
Custom-Designed Drivers with Aramid-Fiber Cones
Aramid fiber is employed in the woofers of all ELAC Debut passive speaker systems. It offers a superior strength-to-weight ratio and improved damping characteristics over conventional paper or plastic drivers. This added strength means arriving at designs that achieve a broader bandwidth with smoother response.
Silk-Dome Tweeter with Deep-Spheroid Custom Waveguide
The waveguide surrounding the new ELAC high-frequency driver features a custom, deep spheroid profile to improve directivity control and shield the dome tweeter from cabinet diffraction modes inherent in traditional box enclosures.
Every ELAC enclosure is engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious textured vinyl finish. ELAC believes that the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.
Superior Build Quality
Count the parts and look at them closely. These don’t look like the components that go in such competitively priced speakers, but rather, speakers that cost much more.
A custom multi-element crossover with high-grade components in each speaker ensures smooth transition between the drivers.
