A Groundbreaking Bookshelf Loudspeaker That
Deserves Its Own Category: Andrew Jones-Designed ELAC Adante AS-61
Features Reference Realism, Extraordinary Engineering, Breathtaking

Don't think of the ELAC Adante AS-61 as mere bookshelf loudspeakers. They're entirely deserving of their own category. Conceived from the ground-up by designer extraordinaire Andrew Jones, and in every right a breakthrough reference-grade monitor, AS-61 transcends
all the ideologies, technologies, and build qualities associated with
the bookshelf field. Structurally innovative and mind-bogglingly
affordable, the fantastically realistic-sounding AS-61 blows away every other model in its class. It's not even a contest. The price-to-performance feats Jones and ELAC achieved with the internationally acclaimed Debut and Uni-Fi Seriesget dramatically multiplied here. AS-61's
sonics, build, engineering, and looks are off-the-rails extraordinary.
Used as mains or surrounds, these speakers rip up and completely
rewrite the rules by offering standard-setting performance at an
unprecedented low cost. Stocked with the identical drivers as the Adante AF-61 towers, its sibling, AS-61 comes
loaded with cutting-edge parts, no-compromise structural elements, and
novel solutions to age-old challenges. We invite you to learn more
about the in-depth specifics of these features below. For the moment,
simply know they translate into clean, natural, accurate,
authoritative music playback and unbelievably realistic bass that will
leave you smiling for days. 100% Money-Back Guaranteed. 

AS-61's consummate attributes begin with ELAC's
interport-coupled cavity cabinet – an inherently superior, elaborate
configuration almost never found in speakers in this price range.
Jointly responsible for AS-61's prodigious low-end ability, each cabinet really contains multiple enclosures in one. AS-61's
concentric midrange and tweeter get their own space in the cabinet,
completely isolated from the woofer pair, which resides in a divided
chamber vented by dual ports. Equally significant, AS-61's
entire enclosure bypasses external porting – eliminating any noise
caused by potential overdriving. This intricate setup also yields
significantly greater output ability, tighter, more extended
low-frequency information, and lower distortion than speakers that
employ conventional external ports. You'll immediately hear the

The drivers and tweeter inside AS-61 are the realization of audiophile dreams. Every Adantemodel uses identical concentric midrange/tweeter and low-frequency drivers, all completely created anew by Jones and his team specifically for this series. The three-way AS-61 employs
one one-inch soft-dome concentric tweeter, one 5.25-inch aluminum-cone
midrange, one internally mounted 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, and
one eight-inch aluminum-cone passive woofer. The active driver remains
invisible to the naked eye and works in concert with its larger,
front-firing passive partner. By extension, the piston movement of the
latter supplies taut, tuneful, powerful bass while the active driver
benefits from exceptional linearity created by the interport-coupled
cavity cabinet. AS-61's active/passive combination is
equaled in both technical and sonic magnificence by the concentric
midrange and tweeter pairing. Providing remarkable point-source
precision, power handling, articulation, and speed, AS-61's concentric mid/tweeter personifies aural naturalism and clarity. 

On AS-61, everything gels. ELAC even
goes as far to make certain the beautiful face of each cabinet – an
elegant, bonded-aluminum front baffle chosen for maximum rigidity –
boasts contours that incorporate advanced waveguides that ensure
optimal dispersion from the drivers. Striking, furniture-grade finishes
available in three colors and the presence of four metal binding posts
on every AS-61 further up the ante of a loudspeaker that will be talked about for decades to come. Order a pair risk-free today and join the conversation.

Innovative Interport-Coupled Cavity Cabinet Isolates Concentric Midrange and Tweeter from Woofers

AS-61's interport-coupled cavity cabinet renders
superior low frequency performance. The engineering challenges
and complicated manufacturing requirements makes such a design a rarity
in affordable speakers, but Andrew Jones' pursuit of a new
value-to-performance benchmark demanded the no-compromise solution.
Each cabinet is actually multiple enclosures in one. The concentric
midrange/tweeter gets isolated in its own space within the cabinet, and
the woofer complement – comprising an active and passive driver –
occupies a divided chamber internally vented with dual ports. In
addition, the entire enclosure is not externally ported, since those
designs produce noise and other distortion if the speaker is
overdriven. The coupled-cavity design also means the active driver
remains invisible. It is internally mounted in its own rear box that
vents bass energy through dual bass ports to a front box enclosing a
larger passive radiator. The piston action of the front-firing
passive driver delivers tight, tuneful, extended low-frequency
information and boasts greater output capability than a traditional
externally ported enclosure. 

Newly Devised Woofers (One Active, One Passive) Supply Beguiling Bass Performance

Two newly devised woofers deliver extraordinary
low-frequency performance far superior to less-complex driver and
cabinet solutions. Engineered specifically to work in concert
with the elaborate interport-coupled cavity cabinet,
the first woofer is a 6.5-inch active driver with wide-band frequency
response. It features an aluminum cone and cast basket assembly with a
substantial magnet and voice coil. The aluminum cone is fast,
stiff, and low in distortion artifacts. Mounted inside the complex
cabinet structure, it remains invisible to the eye but apparent to the
ear. A lightweight, front-firing 8-inch passive radiator partners with
the active driver. It comes mounted to the bonded-aluminum front
baffle of the speaker cabinet and features a stiff aluminum diaphragm
and cast basket assembly. The low weight makes the passive radiator
faster and less prone to distortion artifacts. Plus, it moves air
more quickly, with minimal coloration. Together, the active/passive
combination handles all the power it takes to deliver low-frequency
crescendos with the dynamic realism of a live performance. Each Adante
model uses identical concentric midrange/tweeter and low-frequency

Sublime Accuracy, Exceptional Output: Re-Engineered Concentric Driver and Soft-Dome Tweeter

ELAC's proprietary concentric driver technology
reaches new heights via a brand-new design that delivers astounding
point-source accuracy, linearity, power handling, speed, and
articulation. The large, 5.25-inch diameter midrange cone, made of pure
aluminum for maximum rigidity with lowest coloration, features
a revised profile and generous two-inch voice coil that results in
greater output level and higher sensitivity. The voice coil
also provides more room for a newly engineered soft-dome tweeter
comprised of a cutting-edge fabric material and employing a wide
surround that results in improved lower-treble output as well as lower
resonant and crossover frequencies. Additionally, the entire concentric
driver chassis is mechanically isolated from the other drivers and the
cabinet via anti-vibration mountings that eliminate the transmission
of vibration throughout the loudspeaker.

Crossover Network Fine-Tuned Specifically for Adante: Cabinet Doubles as a Low-Pass Filter

AS-61's interport-coupled cavity cabinet enhances
the linearity of the active bass transducer by reducing driver
excursions. Optimized cabinet volumes further allow for a crossover
network tuned to take advantage of such a design. An internally vented
box, with another box in front housing a passive radiator, acoustically
translates to the front box becoming a second-order acoustic low-pass
filter, eliminating the requirement for two orders of electrical
network and further reducing distortion. 

Connect AS-61 Exactly How You Want: Dual Sets of Five-Way Binding Posts Provide Options

Each AS-61 is equipped with a dual set of metal
binding posts. A supplied link allows use of a single pair of speaker
cables and only two posts, while dual posts allow the option of
bi-wiring with a single amplifier or choosing bi-amplification with the
use of two amplifiers – one for the concentric midrange/tweeter and the
other for low-frequency driver.
