Uni-Fi series
by Andrew Jones.
A new chapter in coherent
concentric sound.
Introducing the ELAC Uni-Fi series. It’s what happens when Andrew Jones accepts
the challenge of creating loudspeakers that deliver the value of Debut in an even
higher-performance package. For the first time in ELAC’s history, the superiority of
a concentric driver comes to an affordable family of loudspeakers.
ELAC’s chief engineer explains how Uni-Fi speakers build on a new foundation: “My goal with the Uni-Fi
series was to create a line of speakers with technology and performance normally reserved for speakers
costing significantly more. By going with a 3-way design and employing a new in-house developed concentric
driver, I’ve achieved a sound that is more true to the music than similar priced products.”
Because of its point source characteristics, a concentric design, combining a tweeter and midrange diaphragm
into a unified source—delivers the most coherent and accurate reproduction across the treble and midrange
frequency spectrums. Because of their high cost, concentric drivers are traditionally used in only the more
expensive systems. All three Uni-Fi models—bookshelf, floorstanding and center-channel—can be the basis of an
outstanding 2-channel system or used to build an awe-inspiring multi-channel surround-sound system. Add an ELAC
subwoofer to rock your world of music and movies like you have never imagined.

Tower of Power
Space constraints should never compromise
great sound, and the Uni-Fi UB5 is the perfect
solution when space is at a premium, but demand
for audiophile sound is not negotiable. Using
the same outstanding driver and crossover
components of its bigger brother, this compact,
3-way, bass reflex monitor delivers the sonic
signature of the Uni-Fi UF5 in a smaller package.
The perfect complement to a Uni-Fi surroundsound system, the UC5 paints a seamless center
stage and gives incredible power to music and
film with a 3-way, bass reflex design that uses the
same outstanding concentric driver that makes
every model in the Uni-Fi series such a stand-out
performer.
Like a precision instrument, Uni-Fi’s flagship UF5
floorstander offers advanced technology with its
concentric midrange/high-frequency transducer
and proprietary aluminum-cone woofers. These
support a 3-way, bass reflex design that delivers a
sound unequaled at their price point

Uni-Fi Features
Custom-Designed Concentric Driver
The delicacy of a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter and the harmonic accuracy
of a rigid aluminum 4-inch midrange cone come together in a
symphony of sonic perfection. Positioning the tweeter concentrically
within the midrange voice coil achieves a uniform directivity pattern,
for flat frequency response and formidable power handling, along with
enhanced imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions.
5.25-inch Aluminum Woofers
With aluminum, resonances that affect the linearity of common paper
cones can be placed beyond the driver’s operating frequency range.
An extended size magnet with vented pole piece increases power
handling, for accurate reproduction of bass frequencies that are clean,
clear and powerful.
Sophisticated Crossover
High quality, audio-grade components specified in the manufacture of
each custom, three-way crossover ensure smooth transition between
the drivers.

Robust Cabinets
Every Uni-Fi enclosure is engineered for the long run with thick MDF
outer walls and a luxurious textured vinyl finish. Specially designed
internal bracing adds stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls,
reducing cabinet vibration that causes unwanted coloration.
Magnetically Attached Grilles
When the protective grille is removed, hidden magnets beneath the
surface of the cabinet keeps the front panel free of attachment holes,
for a clean appearance.
High Quality Base and Feet
An outrigger base design for the UF5 floorstander provides a larger,
more stable footprint and allows optimum coupling of the speaker
cabinet to the floor.
