“…I really like the romantic sound… but I also like the quickness, the attack, the quick decay, the open high frequency and airiness of the German design”
– The Next Best Thing
JET Folded Air-Motion-Transformer
Delivering true high-definition sound, ELAC’s JET tweeters enthrall with its lightning-fast response and wide dynamic range, offering minimal distortion, lots of headroom and a wider frequency range. The ELAC JET tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in the industry and has won international praise with its transparent and effortless sound image.
Compound Curvature Aluminum Woofer
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.
Downward Firing Port
For a more flexible speaker placement and to minimize ventilation noise, the bass reflex port on the Carina series is directed to the floor, exiting the bottom of the speaker cabinet in a down-firing configuration.
Here is what others have to say
One of the things I loved about this speaker is the scale of it. It seemed big - the imaging was massive, it had a deep sound stage.

"ELAC's new Carina BS243.4 loudspeaker sounded more refined than any similarly priced loudspeaker I know of"
An unbelievable value in speakers. Don't walk, run out and listen to the ELAC DEBUT 2.0 SERIES

Incredibly detailed, incredibly revealing speaker with sumptuous imaging and delicious depth that won't break the bank
