ELAC Debut B5.2 - What Hi-Fi review
  • These Elacs are arguably the most capable budget standmounters we’ve heard
  • You can enjoy a wide range of music too. We listened to everything from the sparse electronica of Neneh Cherry’s Broken Politics to Dave Brubeck’s Take Five and these little speakers take it all in their stride. They have the dynamic expression, detail resolution and tonal sophistication to handle it all, and enough stretch in their abilities to get better even when the rest of the system is upgraded.
  • Elac has been in the speaker business since the 1980s and has made many fine products in that time. It’s fair to say that these new Debut B5.2 speakers should be considered one of the company’s finest efforts, particularly when their price is taken into account. If the established budget speaker brands aren’t worried about these boxes, they should be.

  • New 5.25-inch Woven Aramid-Fiber Midbass. The revised shape of the aramid cone offers even greater stiffness and damping, far superior to polypropylene or paper. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended low-frequency response.
  • New 1-inch Tweeter with Wide-Dispersion Waveguide. A new silk-dome tweeter features a wide-roll surround and takes response up to 35,000 Hz for even more lifelike high frequencies. The waveguide improves directivity control and eliminates the diffraction modes inherent in traditional box enclosures

ELAC Debut B5.2: Delivering unparalleled performance for its price.

Improving on its award-winning predecessor was no easy task, but the Debut B5.2 sets a yet higher standard, delivering performance in inverse proportion to its diminutive size. And it remains the best value in the world of affordable speakers, with sound that surpasses speakers many times the price.

Debut 2.0™ Series by Andrew Jones: Everything we do is different.

Few speakers have garnered such critical acclaim as the original Debut Series by ELAC. They established a new value proposition, with build quality and performance never before attainable at such an affordable price. Debut “changed the game,” and has now changed it again with the Debut 2.0 Series—proof that ELAC can’t leave well enough alone. Redesigned from the ground up, these speakers sound even more remarkable than the ones that sparked the revolution in affordable high-end sound.

1-inch cloth-dome deep-spheroid waveguide tweeter with oversized magnet

A custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile improves directivity control and shields the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction.



5.25-inch woven aramid-fiber woofer with oversized magnet and vented pole piece

Woven aramid fiber offers a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and damping over common polypropylene or paper cones. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended frequency response.
