ELAC Carina FS 247.4 - Hifi & Musik (SE) review
  • It was obvious: the Elac BS243.4s could resolve supermicro information better than any speaker I know in its price range. The choir appeared as genuine little heads with faces and moving mouths, the sound of each singer unique and distinct.
  • In a confession booth or while handling snakes by a pulpit, I'd have to swear: Elac's new Carina BS243.4 loudspeaker sounded more refined than any similarly priced loudspeaker I know of.
  • Mainly, though, the stand-mounted Elac's greatest virtue is its supersmooth octave-to-octave balance. Throughout my review process, the word elegant kept forcing itself on me. Bravo, Andrew and Elac!
  • Measurements: Elac has impressive linear and cohesive frequency response with only one hint to climb to the top measured straight from the front (Green). 60 degrees (red) from the side falls treble over 10 kHz, fast but controlled. Elac has very nice impedance (green). Never below 5.5 ohms.

ELAC Carina FS 247.4:

“All in all, the new Elac floorstanding speaker is more than a solid entry into the high-end world. The Carina 247.4 sounds natural and balanced, sometimes almost neutral and tightly tuned like a studio monitor, if need be, but also as impulsive as a large concert speaker. This is not least due to the harmonious interplay between highs and basses, which are never too thin or too bulky ... ”

The Carina Floorstand Speaker

Building upon its performance, Carina continues ELAC’s tradition of utilizing the JET tweeter, chosen for its amazing clarity, dynamics and attack. To match this capability, a new in-house developed proprietary compound curvature aluminum coned woofer is seamlessly blended via a sophisticated multi-element xover to produce an organic life like sound experience. Fresh looks, fresh sound; the new Carina is destined to further enhance ELACs class-leading reputation.

To match the capabilities of the JET tweeter and guarantee a seamless transition from the woofer to the JET tweeter, the compound curvature cone has been developed to control the cone breakup and move it well beyond the operating range of the woofer. A large diameter voice coil and over-sized vented pole piece magnet combine to give remarkable bass dynamics and a rich powerful performance.
