Treble Unit

ELAC JET III tweeter used in all 180 Series range

The folded foil membrane arrangement in the world famous JET-tweeter is driven by a powerful neodymium magnet system. it plays effortlessly anf free from resonance, breezy and transparent up to 50,000 Hz and is, with its maximum linear frequency response, especially suited to sound reproduction of DV-A and SACD formats.

ELAC JET DC (Dispersion Control) ring

The ELAC "JET Dispersion Control DC" is a flat ring made of open-cell rubber foam which is mounted around the JET orifice with four clasps (or with adhesive tape).

The JET DC results in a broadband reduction of about 0.5 dB of the radiated sound level nearly independent of frequency. The JET DC is best suited for rooms with little sound absorption at high frequencies, especially for rooms with large windows without curtains or with a smooth floor without a carpet.

Note: The loudspeakers of the 180 series are not supplied with the JET Dispersion Control - this is an optional accessory.


Midbass Unit

ELAC BS 182 - TT 135 AS midbass driver

TT 135 AS midbass used in BS 182 and CC 180

Extremely deep bass, low coloration and accurate sound reproduction are achieved with ELAC's aluminium sandwich membrane woofers. An ELAC specialty: during a special gluing procedure a 0.2 mm thick aluminium layer is combined with a cellulose cone forming the sandwich membrane. This membrane technology results in an extremely stiff membrane that eliminates partial vibrations.
