The Debut Series is 100% developed by renowned speaker designer Andrew Jones at ELACs dedicated Southern California engineering facility. The Debut range includes bookshelf, floor standing, centre-channel and Dolby Atmos-enabled models, complemented by a range of powered subwoofers. The Debut range will change your expectations about affordable speakers forever.

The Debut B4 harnesses the performance of Debut’s larger 2-way, bass-reflex bookshelf speakers and delivers it up in a compact enclosure that will have you guessing how Andrew Jones gets so much accurate, lifelike sound from such a tiny box. Use them as the perfect two-channel solution for smaller rooms, or as the building blocks for a compact surround-sound home entertainment system.

Silk-dome tweeter with deep-spheroid custom waveguide

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.

Custom-designed woofer with aramid-fiber cone

Custom-designed woofer with aramid-fiber cone

Aramid fiber is employed in the woofers of all ELAC Debut passive speaker systems. Aramid fiber 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.

Intricate crossovers

Intricate crossovers

A custom multi-element crossover with high-grade components in each speaker ensures smooth transition between the drivers.

Robust cabinets

Robust cabinets

Every ELAC enclosure is engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious textured vinyl finish. The cabinets of the floorstanders and the center channel incorporate specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibration, which causes unwanted coloration to the sound. ELAC believes that the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.
