A benchmark to celebrate 90 years of ELAC achievement

One look tells you this is no ordinary loudspeaker; at more than 5½–ft tall and weighing more than 300 lbs, Concentro commands attention. Its elliptical cabinet is crafted to the finest furniture-grade perfection and finished in high-gloss white or black epoxy, or to specification in any color in between. The Concentro cannot be mistaken for any other speaker, with a complex base machined from a single block of aluminum and weighing more than 55 pounds. Integral oval side panels of precious wood, carbon fiber or leather surround a pair of side-firing 250mm woofers on either side of the enclosure. These newly-developed units feature smooth, stiff aluminum-sandwich diaphragms, and fire in a push-push/pull-pull configuration that delivers maximum energy and accuracy, down to the lowest octave. The back of the cabinet features twin ports for the bass drivers.

The sophisticated front baffle features curves that allow optimum propagation and dispersion of sound waves from the two drivers. On top is a dual-concentric 127mm midrange with JET-5 tweeter at its acoustic center. Beneath this is a front-firing 177mm crystal membrane mid-woofer. The whole results in a near point-source presentation of the sound source, micro-accuracy and flawless, pinpoint imaging. Meanwhile, dynamic range is nearly unlimited, from the most nuanced detail to the most powerful crescendo. ELAC Concentro. Listen and embark upon a whole new era in The Life of Sound.

Caution should be exercised in the use of superlatives. But the 500 line does not deserve different: it is simply gigantic. Sound experience without limits. We have optimized even the smallest details to get all that is acoustically possible.

The eye doesn´t identify the greatest innovation of the line 500 at first sight, but the ear does at first tone: The ELAC VX-JET. Basis for this innovative driver is the famous ELAC X-JET driver, a combination of the well reputed JET tweeter coaxially surrounded by the midrange driver. The innovation of the VX-JET is the variably adjustable position of the driver, therefore the name VX-JET.
