CC 121: Compact design and dynamic sound
The CC 121 is the ideal
centre channel loudspeaker suitable for use
with FS 127 and BS 123
in a home cinema setup.
This compact centre
loudspeaker is designed
to fit most Hi-Fi/AV racks.
As this unit is magnetically shielded, it can be
mounted directly on the
television without
affecting the picture
quality. Due to the wide
dispersion of this loudspeaker, the traditional
‘sweet spot’ is eliminated,
allowing the movie
dialogue to be heard by a
wider audience.
Features and Benefits:
•
This unique 2 ½-way loudspeaker offers wide dispersion of the movie dialogue, which is unobtainable using conventional 2-way design.
•
To improve the performance of the system the cabinet is internally reinforced in a way that
eliminates internal standing waves and unwanted resonances.
•
The CC 121 uses the latest generation of ELAC’s 25 mm
aluminium dome tweeter, which has extra headroom. Dome
and voice coil are moulded as one single piece. The driver
therefore offers higher power rating and durability.
•
The newly designed high gloss baffle with a diffraction free
surface increases the sound quality and improves imaging.
•
Both 140 mm bass drivers using ELAC tried-and-tested
Aluminium sandwich technology allow distortion-free bass response as the resonance of the membrane is minimised. This
is due to the composite cellulose and aluminium construction.
It goes without saying that all drivers are magnetically
shielded.

•
Due to the double flare design of the bass port, flow noise, even
at high levels, is eliminated.
•
•
A two-part bass
control plug is
provided that can
partially or fully close
the port, so the
system can be
adjusted for the room
acoustics and
speaker placement.
To optimise the sound there are individual crossover networks for the high and low frequencies,
which can be bi-wired using two pairs of cable or alternatively, for optimum performance, two amplifiers can be used in a bi-amped situation. Good contact is guaranteed by large, gold plated
speaker terminals, which are fully insulated to protect against short circuits. The crossover network is equipped with an overload protection circuit.
Finishes: silver, titan, cherry, black
