Elac Carina 243.4 Bookshelf Speakers
The new Carina series matches fresh visual elegance with remarkable sound to bring you what promises to be a new classic in ELACs lineup.
Developed from the renowned award-winning 240 series.

The Carina Bookshelf Speakers

Building upon its performance, Carina continues ELAC’s tradition of utilizing the JET tweeter, chosen for its amazing clarity, dynamics and attack. To match this capability, a new in-house developed proprietary compound curvature aluminum coned woofer is seamlessly blended via a sophisticated
multi-element xover to produce an organic life like sound experience. Fresh looks, fresh sound; the new Carina is destined to further enhance ELACs class leading reputation.

JET Folded Air-Motion-Transformer

Delivering true high-definition sound, ELAC’s JET tweeters enthrall with its lightning-fast response and wide dynamic range, offering minimal distortion, lots of headroom and a wider frequency range. The ELAC JET tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in the industry and has won international praise with its transparent and effortless sound image.

Compound Curvature Aluminum Woofer

To match the capabilities of the JET tweeter and guarantee a seamless transition from the woofer to the JET tweeter, the compound curvature cone has been developed to control the cone breakup and move it well beyond the operating range of the woofer. A large diameter voice coil and over-sized vented pole piece magnet combine to give remarkable bass dynamics and a rich powerful performance.

Downward Firing Port

For a more flexible speaker placement and to minimize ventilation noise, the bass reflex port on the Carina series is directed to the floor, exiting the bottom of the speaker cabinet in a down-firing configuration.

Performance

The BS243.4s look sleek, solid, curvy, and moderne, with chamfered front-side corners and a trapezoidal footprint.Building upon the 240's performance, Carina continues ELAC’s tradition of utilizing the JET tweeter, chosen for its amazing clarity, dynamics and attack. To match this capability, a new in-house developed proprietary compound curvature aluminum coned woofer is seamlessly blended via a sophisticated multi-element crossover to produce an organic, lifelike sound experience.

Elac call their AMT tweeters "air motion transformers" because they move air at a velocity several times higher than that of the diaphragm moving it. As a result, the AMT tweeter's sensitivity and transient response are improved. The JET tweeter delivers high piano notes with a finely drawn attack and no blurring or ringing on overtones.

To match the capabilities of the JET tweeter and guarantee a seamless transition from the woofer to the JET tweeter, the compound curvature cone of the aluminum woofer has been developed to control the cone breakup and move it well beyond the operating range of the woofer. Additionally, a large-diameter voice coil and over-sized vented pole piece magnet combine to give remarkable bass dynamics and a rich powerful performance.The woofer features a unique curved design that extends its high-frequency response to provide better integration with the Jet tweeter. A downward firing port on the speaker’s bottom reduces ventilation noise and permits installation in a bookshelf or against a wall.

Elac's new Carina BS243.4 loudspeaker sound more refined than any similarly priced loudspeaker. Mainly, though, the stand-mounted Elac's greatest virtue is its supersmooth octave-to-octave balance.
