The following is a press release issued by ELAC.
Cypress, CA | September 2, 2020 – ELAC, a leading global provider of high-performance speakers and electronics, today announced the Uni-Fi 2.0 line of home speakers. This new line builds upon the success of the first-generation Uni-Fi Family and incorporates a variety of new features and technologies.
“Based on feedback from dealers and end-users, along with changes in the market, we have completely re-designed the entire line-up. Newly developed drivers, waveguides, cabinets, and networks result in a line that is easier to setup, offers greater compatibility, and delivers significant performance improvements” said Andrew Jones, vice president engineering, ELAC.
Some of the notable new features of the Uni-Fi 2.0 line-up include.
Newly Developed 4” Concentric Driver: A new wide-surround tweeter enhances it’s low and high frequency extension allowing for improved blending with the midrange driver. An entirely new mid-range design features a larger diameter voice coil, new aluminum cone profile, new low-profile surround, and an all-new neodymium magnet assembly.
Single Piece Woofer: A newly developed single piece aluminum dished cone results in improved stiffness. Combined with an oversized magnet, large diameter voice coil, and extended pole piece, these changes result in improved accuracy and bass dynamics.
Sophisticated 3-way Crossover: An enhanced design improves response linearity, improves driver integration and delivers a true 6-ohm nominal impedance for compatibility with virtually all AV receivers.
Robust Cabinets: Every Uni-Fi 2.0 enclosure is engineered with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious black ash vinyl finish. Specially located internal bracing adds stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls, reducing the cabinet vibration that causes unwanted coloration.
Front Firing Ports – Relocating the vents to the front on the bookshelf and center speakers allows for greater freedom of placement, even in restricted places like a cabinet or up close to a wall.
All three new models are available beginning today at ELAC retailers nationwide.
