ELAC WS-1645 On-Wall Speaker
The Elac WS-1645 and WS-1665 super slim on wall speakers are only 100mm deep, and are the best of the Elac super slim speaker range. These great looking speakers can be used as a front, centre or rear speaker. As they also Feature the Jet Tweeter and Crystal Membrane drivers, they are the perfect compact compliment to Elac Carina and Vela series speakers.
With drive units that have already attracted worldwide acclaim in the BS 312, the 2-way, bass-reflex WS 1645 offers astonishing bass extension, combined with the superb JET 5 tweeter for smooth, quality and detailed sound. This flat profile on-wall speaker is flexible and capable, with amazing results. The Elac WS-1645 may be used as a Main or Surround speaker. They also make a great compromise centre speaker, all though we encourage the use of the WS-1665 or W-1465 as a balanced centre.
Side porting allows the speaker to perform beautifully whilst being mounted flat to the wall. The WS-1645 is second only to the WS-1665 L C R, and is a great 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.
