Description floor acoustic ELAC FS 249.2

Three-way speaker system ELAC FS 249.2 is on the top in a new series 240.2. Compared with its predecessor from the 240 series, the new model weighs 4 pounds more. Its appearance is also impressive, all very elegant and refined glossy finish. The body is assembled from plates of MDF, excellent damped and reinforced by braces. One bass port installed in the bottom of the Cabinet, separated from the base of the speaker with four legs. The second port is at the top of the back wall, and it can be closed with the special cap for adjusting bass. The base plate rests on adjustable legs, which are attached to the spikes or rubber inserts.

Acoustics ELAC FS 249.2 got the JET 5 tweeter is a JET 3, which was used in the previous model. The new network is also based on the principle of work of Hale and uses the finest belt the membrane together with a powerful neodymium magnet. This design allows to obtain a linear frequency response and to raise the upper limit frequency response to 50,000 Hz, which is especially important for SACD.

MIDs deals 140 mm driver, and the responsibility carries a pair of long-throw WOOFER 180 mm woofers. The diffusers of all three speakers are marked AS-XR, indicating extended dynamic range (XR – extended range). Applied's proprietary aluminium-Sandwich AS Technology: paper cone glued aluminum dome thickness of 0.125 mm, the surface of which has a relief machined and resembles a crystal. So aperture has received the name “Crystal Membrane”. Coil radiator is connected with paper cone and dome. Created in this way allows the sandwich to resist the resonances and increases the stiffness of the membrane and increases the dynamic range of an octave.

On the back wall of the Cabinet are 4 terminals, through which it becomes available bi-wiring. The schematic of the crossover were reworked a little. In circuits of filters are traditionally used elements of the premium, including coils without cores. The grill is attached to the front panel, FS 249.2 with Nickel-plated pins. Provides a reliable connection and causing no distortions even at high volumes.

The sound of the ELAC FS 249.2 has a high resolution and transparency. Especially impressive are the crystal-clear treble. The average range is characterized by a naturalness and naturalness. The bass is precise and deep. The model builds easily scale the stage even in large rooms.
