ELAC AIR-X BS 403 Active Loudspeakers With Class A/B AIR-X AMP - Pair Standmount

ELAC AIR-X BS 403 Active Loudspeakers With Class A/B AIR-X AMP - Pair

  • Product Code: AIR-X 403
  • £2,499.00

The ELAC AIR-X BS 403 loudspeakers is the fully active version of the award winning ELAC BS 403 standmount loudspeaker which uses a active amplifier which also allows the AIR-X BASE module to be added.

This is a great combination as whilst the AIR-X BS 403 can be used as a traditional active loudspeaker via preamplifier, streamer or computer etc there is the added benefit of a wireless receiver onboard the AIR-X BS 403 loudspeaker. By adding the ELAC AIR-X BASE module you can also run them in situation were cables are just not convenient or wanted.

Make no mistake when the ELAC AIR-X BS 403 loudspeakers are used in wireless mode they offer a SERIOUSLY good sound with the added convenience of easy placement within a room or why not simply carry to spot where cables are a nuisance when have a BBQ for instance?

The AIR-X BS 403 have full DSP so can be tailored to work in any position within a room.

Details:

The ELAC 400 series loudspeakers move performance way beyond what most loudspeakers achieve at this price point.

The ELAC 400 series uses the latest generation ELAC JET 5 AMT tweeter which uses a new venting and crossover system and this allows the JET 5 AMT tweeter to offer an even more natural high frequency presenation than previously thought possible.

Alongside the ELAC JET 5 AMT tweeter a new range of ELAC AS-XR (Extended Range) bass/midrange drive units have been developed which uses a more substantial chassis system and DAS (Double Width Surround) offering a controlled but deep bass response and a very open midrange presentation.

ELAC have mounted all this drive unit technology within a heavily brased and luxurious high gloss finish cabinet of slim proportions to fit within your listening room with ease.

The ELAC BS 403 standmount uses 1 x 150mm AS-XR (Extended Range) DAS (Double Width Surround) bass/midrange drive units alongside the JET 5 AMT tweeter.

Al-Basket

To minimize mechanical vibrations the baskets are made of casted aluminum for a maximum of rigidity.

Al-Sandwich

In a special glueing procedure, an Aluminium foil of 0.2 mm is joined to a pulp fibre cone to form a sandwich membrane.The result: reduced partial oscillation, no distortion and an optimized large signal behaviour.

JET 5 AMT

The ELAC JET 5 tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in drive unit manufacter and has won international aclaim with its transparent and effortless sound image.The JET 5 tweeter was developed to perfection on the basis of the famous 'Air Motion Transformer' by loudspeaker pioneer Dr Oskar Heil. Its principle: a concertinaed foil membrane is driven by a strong magnet system of neodymium rods . This 'motor' drives the air considerably faster than the conventional pistonic technique. High sensitivity and extraordiary dynamics are the result.
Due to many additional design changes (e.g. new neodymium magnet system) a higher efficiency and a smoother sound pressure level frequency response up to 50,000 Hz was achieved.
The core of the JET 5 tweeter is the folded foil membrane. With a fold width of only 0.84 mm, a major requirement in the JET 5 production is precision. To guarantee the repetition accuracy and unchanging quality even with high output, this production step has been automised.
Due to continuous improvement, the JET 5 tweeter now creates an effortless and airy resonance free image up to 50,000 Hz, and with its linear frequency response is ideally suited for the reproduction of SACD and 24/192 high resolution download files.

Port

For a more flexible speaker placement and to minimize ventilation noise, the bass reflex port is directed towards the base of cabinet (downfiring).
