FS 189 “The powerful one”

Cea mai mare incinta din seria 180 este FS 189. Are rezerve de putere incredibile, este robusta si livreaza sunet de inalt detaliu, armonios cu un bass scurt, percutant. Este la fel de impresionanta cand este folosita atat ca incinta principala in sistemele surround mari, cat si ca incinta stereo de inalta performanta, rezistenta la nivele mari de putere. Datorita unei bune eficiente, ofera o reproducere excelenta a sunetului in compania amplificatoarelor mai mici sau chiar a amplificatoarelor pe lampi.

Treble Unit

ELAC JET III tweeter used in all 180 Series range

The folded foil membrane arrangement in the world famous JET-tweeter is driven by a powerful neodymium magnet system. it plays effortlessly anf free from resonance, breezy and transparent up to 50,000 Hz and is, with its maximum linear frequency response, especially suited to sound reproduction of DV-A and SACD formats.

ELAC JET DC (Dispersion Control) ring

The ELAC "JET Dispersion Control DC" is a flat ring made of open-cell rubber foam which is mounted around the JET orifice with four clasps (or with adhesive tape).

The JET DC results in a broadband reduction of about 0.5 dB of the radiated sound level nearly independent of frequency. The JET DC is best suited for rooms with little sound absorption at high frequencies, especially for rooms with large windows without curtains or with a smooth floor without a carpet.

Note: The loudspeakers of the 180 series are not supplied with the JET Dispersion Control - this is an optional accessory.


Midrange Unit

ELAC 180 Series midrange

MT 140 AS midrange used in FS 189

The midrange cone is designed in the ELAC proprietary aluminium-sandwich technique which avoids noticeable resonances in the diaphragm.The "Full-Roll" fabric surrounding expands the transmission range up to high frequencies to facilitate the crossover to the tweeter.
The magnetic system is shielded avoiding picture distortions in a CRT TV set.


Bass Unit

ELAC FS 189 - TT 175 AS midbass driver

TT 175 AS midbass used in BS 184 and FS 189

Extremely deep bass, low coloration and accurate sound reproduction are achieved with ELAC's aluminium sandwich membrane woofers. An ELAC specialty: during a special gluing procedure a 0.2 mm thick aluminium layer is combined with a cellulose cone forming the sandwich membrane. This membrane technology results in an extremely stiff membrane that eliminates partial vibrations.
