The mechanically adjustable ELAC coax promises an adaptation to the acoustics of the room in an elegant narrow box. Manages this HiFi miracle?

A move can be the most unpleasant events in the life of a high Enders. The plant, which has sounded so wonderful harmonical in the old room, will simply not quite sound in the new environment. The bass? Slow. The figure? Diffuse or flat. The central location? Then.

The acoustic reasons are obvious: the interplay of direct and indirect sound in the room strongly influenced the stage picture, the timing and the sense of distance. The responsible parameters are the reverberation of the room, the distance and the bundling measure of the speaker. Boxes with strong focusing of sound energy on the listening position sound better at longer distances and more vivid rooms, wide-beam specimens at well damped rooms or in the near field.

ELAC: Mechanically adjustable speaker

Only stupid, that you, apart, hard can influence these sizes as listeners from the distance. ELAC is therefore already introduced a box a while ago with the FS 509, with a mechanical device the midrange unit forward or pushes back, so to correct the angle. A move in another hearing room could lose the horror: the new space is reverberant, the midrange unit via screw knob is pushed back and brings together more. Puts the listener in the near-field or the space is more attenuated, it pushes out the coax forward away from the level of the sound wall.

ELAC FS 507 VX-Jet: structure and function

Now ELAC complements the portfolio with the FS 507. At the heart of the box is the “X-Jet” of course the latest version-coax system. In the treble, a driver plays the air motion transformer principle: a multiple folded foil converter in an extremely strong magnetic field, whose Lamellen apart to express themselves proportionally to the music signal or compress. Around the ELAC developers placed a ring radiator for the midrange. It is powered by an exceptionally large 3-inch voice coil and by a strong beading in the track kept outside as inside. So also the membrane performs no partial coloration and other sound deterioration, its surface in the ELAC typical “Crystal” procedure is repeatedly bent. As the membrane surface is limited here, the ring disappears already exceeding 550 Hertz. It passes to the upper of the two 18 cm cones, which also await you with a crystal membrane. Only at about 180 Hz is he added lower of two low-midrange driver, and both work in parallel. The purpose of this 3.5 way approach is to avoid interference between the two chassis in tone.

Between 30 and 40 Hertz, the basses are supported by a reflex tube, which is generously rounded and also works down to the base of the box, to avoid compression effects and noise. Boxes inside it, as well as crossover and wiring is covered with acoustic wool, to give no chance reflections and tone resonances.

Top marks the ELAC FS 507 stroked a VX Jet relating to processing: the baskets with the typical corporate design are extremely precisely embedded into the baffle, the black piano varnish has been polished so well that the listener can mirror loose in it.

ELAC FS 507 VX-Jet: hearing test

This of course called for a hearing test with piano: the large Steinway in Janina Fialkowskas outstanding over “Liszt recital ‘ (ATMA) sounded about the ELAC captivatingly real, but also sober. You fine differentiations in the attacks, the body of the instrument, the space around – all of this constituted the 507 Unpretentious and without any sensationalism. At best the directional definition was still room for improvement in the position of “Coax forward”. Because also the chorus in Mozart’s “Requiem” (for example, Guttenberg) sounded while open and wonderfully dynamic, the individual singers were projected as usual but not so precise. Could very well adjusted with the Rotary wheel: one sank successively the coax in his sound leadership, the figure was accurate, the sound became more present and more focused on the space between the boxes. The balance between spaciousness and Imaging is to hear it in any listening environment.

In the stereoplay listening space, it was ideal to about 2-3 mm behind the baffle. Then the ELAC in Yellos scored “Oh Yeah” with a crisp, only not infinitely powerful deep bass, with a consistent based on facial appearance and outstanding balance of detail and spatially deep sound image. A speaker, whose qualities they discovered slow – you no longer want to without but at the latest when we first moved.
