ELAC Vela BS403
A complex design: high-class lacquered and wooden veneered cabinets, which have a trapezoid shape and are angled rearward. The design catches eyes but conduces acoustics, too. The sound of VELA shows it´s family background to successful series 400.
But the advantages are distinct. The angling of the cabinet in combination with the new wave-guide of the JET tweeter improves the definition of stereo and multi-channel audio in modern furnishing. But there are more than the obvious changes. For example the optimized drivers are able to reproduce high-energy transients more precisely.
Form supports function – the convex shaped baffle and the big radiuses of the cabinet promote the acoustics because influences of cabinet to frequency response are reduced.
Close to action – the bottom plate is made of aluminium and is featured with a down-firing bass reflex port which gives advantages in positioning the speaker.
Ready for connection – thanks to its connections the Vela series offers possibility of using bi-wiring and bi-amping.
