ELAC WS-1665 On-Wall L C R Speaker
The Ultimate Discrete Performance Speaker!
The WS-1665 uses the Elac Jet Tweeter and Crystal Membrane drivers from the acclaimed Line 243 series speakers . This flat profile on-wall speaker can be used vertically as a main left and right speaker with amazing results, but can also be used horizontally as an on-wall centre speaker to suit conventional speaker designs.
Side porting allows the speaker to perform beautifully whilst being mounted flat to the wall. The WS-1665 is the perfect blend of serious acoustic performance and a flat, discrete design!
Crystal membrane driver
The eye-catching surface of the crystal membrane is more than just an attractive design feature. Drivers employ the Crystal Membrane and their design is based on ELAC’s Aluminum-Sandwich Technology. By resembling the surface of a large crystal, the aluminum-foil stamping stiffens the aluminum dome, diminishing resonances and minimizing coloration, while improving power handling and dynamics.
The voice coil design of the drivers results in an expanded frequency range, and driver surround allows for longer cone excursions for superior volume and low distortion, a revolutionary engineering achievement for a driver of its size.
JET 5 tweeter
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. Due to many additional design changes, like an improved new neodymium magnet system, even higher efficiency, higher sound pressure levels and frequency response up to 50 kHz was achieved.
The core of the JET tweeter is the folded foil membrane. The fold width is only 0.84 mm and even still the folding and fixing of the membrane being executed by hand. Due to continuous improvement, the JET 5 tweeter creates an effortless, airy and resonance-free image up to 50,000 Hz.
