Product Description

Details

Bass that takes you down.

Nothing brings realism to recorded sound like deep, authoritative bass. Yet most affordable systems are compromised in this critical region. Here the rich, powerful bottom octaves are fundamental—literally—to the life of music and movie soundtracks when it comes to reproducing the full spectrum of instruments and sound effects.

ELAC subwoofers are easy to add to your existing speaker system, thanks to built-in power amplification—with EQ models—ELAC’s advanced control app that makes room integration a breeze. Because the low frequencies reproduced by a subwoofer are omnidirectional, it means that a subwoofer can be located most any place in your listening room and that, because of the omnidirectional dispersion pattern of the lowest notes, a single subwoofer is sufficient to reproduce the content of both stereo channels. Listeners who want even more bass output can use one subwoofer per channel for the absolute ultimate in low-frequency slam, impact and realism. Add an ELAC powered subwoofer to your sound system and discover what you’ve been missing.

 

The challenge for powered subwoofers and their amplifiers

Audio quality and power efficiency have long been at odds when it comes to amplifier design. Traditional Class AB amplifiers, which account for about 90 percent of all amplifiers made, are capable of producing prodigious power and excellent sound, but do so at the expense of efficiency. In fact, up to 50 percent of these amplifiers’ energy is wasted, dissipated as heat. Heat becomes an added liability when such amplifiers, in the case of powered subwoofers, are enclosed in a speaker cabinet. Class D switching amplifiers, on the other hand, run cool and occupy relatively little space. Compact, lightweight and efficient, they are a sensible choice for the latest applications, especially when used for powering subwoofers. Typically, however, the sound quality achieved by typical Class D designs has not been suitable for the best audio applications, but new technology has improved these designs to compete with the best of traditional amplifier topologies.

 

Enter BASH® amplification

BASH (Bridged Amplifier Switching Hybrid) amplifiers represent a “best of both worlds” solution for subwoofer amplification, combining the sound quality of Class AB with the efficiency of Class D amplifiers. While a Class AB amp uses fixed supply voltage regardless of input signal, BASH uses a modulated switched mode power supply that tracks the input signal, supplying only the necessary voltage to the Class AB amp as needed. The latest BASH technology has gone through three core evolutions and is further refined in these latest ELAC Debut subwoofers.

 

Robust cabinets

Every ELAC Debut subwoofer is engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious textured vinyl finish. The cabinets of the S10EQ and S12EQ incorporate specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength to the outer walls. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibration, which causes unwanted coloration to the sound. ELAC believes that the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.



Custom bass drivers

Custom long-throw drivers provide bass that is fundamental to accurately reproducing today’s demanding music and movie soundtracks. Both S10 and S10EQ subwoofers employ a 10-inch driver, while the S12EQ employs a 12-inch unit. Both the S10EQ and S12EQ also employ a single 10-inch and 12-inch passive radiator, respectively, which improves the transient response and increases the efficiency of the system.

Advanced Bluetooth® control

Doing away with traditional analog controls, both the S10EQ and S12EQ subwoofers incorporate ELAC’s advanced digital control system. Simply download the ELAC SubEQ app for your smartphone and you will have complete control. No more fumbling around the back of the subwoofer again.



Auto EQ

Utilizing the ELAC SubEQ app and your smartphone’s microphone, both the S10EQ and S12EQ subwoofers will automatically equalize to your room’s characteristics using a 12-band parametric equalizer. Full manual EQ is available as well.

 

Auto power On/Off

Debut subwoofers will detect when audio is being sent to the unit and power the unit on. Also, to conserve energy, the subwoofer will power off after a long period of inactivity.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you've ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, "Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?"

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don't fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don't show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it's genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
