ELAC Line BS 312 Bookshelf Speakers
ELAC have kept the factor that made their 305 speakers made legendary - aesthetics and sound in perfect unity. By using aluminium, the near-complete absence of a front baffle allows the sound to radiate with total freedom. The audible result is room-filling, unfettered and utterly captivating sound.
The BS 312 is a compact 2-way, bass-reflex design, with the multi-award-winning JET 5 tweeter and a new woofer. This combination gives the BS 312 unprecedented precision and dynamics in any position.
Crystal membrane driver
The eye-catching surface of the crystal membrane is more than just an attractive design feature. The 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 the folding and fixing of the membrane is still executed by hand. Due to continuous improvement, the JET 5 tweeter creates an effortless, airy and resonance-free sound image up to 50,000 Hz.
For a more flexible speaker placement and to minimize ventilation noise, the bass reflex port is directed to the floor, exiting the bottom of the speaker cabinet in a down-firing configuration.
