A New Chapter in Coherent Concentric Sound
Space constraints should never compromise great sound, and the Uni-Fi UB5 Bookshelf Loudspeaker is the perfect solution when space is at a premium but demand for audiophile sound is not negotiable. Using the same outstanding driver and crossover components of its bigger brother, this compact, 3-way, bass reflex monitor delivers the sonic signature of the Uni-Fi UF5 in a smaller package.
Point Source Characteristics
Because of its point source characteristics, a concentric design (combining a tweeter and midrange diaphragm into a unified source) delivers the most coherent and accurate reproduction across the treble and midrange frequency spectrums. All three Uni-Fi models—bookshelf, floorstanding and center-channel—can be the basis of an outstanding 2-channel system, or used to build an awe-inspiring multi-channel surround-sound system. Add an ELAC subwoofer to rock your world of music and movies like you have never imagined.
Custom-Designed Concentric Driver
The delicacy of a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter and the harmonic accuracy of a rigid aluminum 4-inch midrange cone come together in a symphony of sonic perfection. Positioning the tweeter concentrically within the midrange voice coil achieves a uniform directivity pattern, for flat frequency response and formidable power handling, along with enhanced imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions.
5.25-inch Aluminum Woofers
With aluminum, resonances that affect the linearity of common paper cones can be placed beyond the driver's operating frequency range. An extended size magnet with vented pole piece increases power handling for accurate reproduction of bass frequencies that are clean, clear, and powerful.
Every Uni-Fi enclosure is engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious textured and vinyl finish. Specially designed internal bracing adds stiffness and strength to the cabinet's outer walls, reducing cabinet vibration that causes unwanted coloration.
Magnetically Attached Grilles
When the protective grille is removed, hidden magnets beneath the surface of the cabinet keeps the front panel free of attachment holes for a clean appearance.
High-quality, audio-grade components specified in the manufacture of each custom, three-way crossover ensure smooth transition between the drivers.
