ELAC Uni-Fi Slim BS-U5 Bookshelf Speakers
With ELAC's Uni-Fi Slim BS-U5, worrying about fitting everything in a floor space is a thing of the past. Smaller floor space no longer has to mean a compromise in quality of sound. By using the same outstanding driver and crossover components of its bigger brother, this small speaker delivers the sonic signature of Uni-Fi but in a smaller package.
| “My goal with the Uni-Fi series was to create a line of speakers with technology and performance normally reserved for speakers costing significantly more. By going with a 3-way design and employing a new in-house developed concentric driver, I’ve achieved a sound that is more true to the music than similar priced products.” - ELAC’s chief engineer |
Balanced three-way design
A three-way speaker offers many advantages in the design of a full-range system. By assigning dedicated drivers to high, mid- and bass frequencies, each is optimized for the frequency range for which its design and material composition is best suited. Drivers like the groundbreaking concentric midrange-tweeter of the Uni-Fi series perform at their best, while larger, aluminum-cone woofers handle the frequency ranges in which they perform best. At the same time, a three-way speaker complement allows for a more straightforward crossover and cabinet design, eliminating complex and costly solutions.
One secret to the great sound of the Uni-Fi series are the high quality, audio-grade components specified in the manufacture of each custom, three-way crossover, the careful design of which is essential to smooth transition between the drivers. The best crossovers are the ones in which the sonic landscape, from lowest fundamentals to highest high, becomes seamless. This is the sound of Uni-Fi.
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.
