About the ELAC Debut Reference DFR52

Add some soul to your system

I love floor-standing speakers — they produce big sound that can fill even large rooms. Plus, they look really cool! ELAC's Debut Reference DFR52 floor-stander shines on both fronts.

This elegant tower sports a 1" cloth dome tweeter for extended high-frequency response. It's paired with a trio of 5-1/4" aramid-fiber woofers for smooth midrange and punchy bass. 

Use a pair of the DFR52's as part of a soulful stereo or Debut Reference Series home theater system with confidence.

Custom-built for excellent sound

Fans of ELAC know that renowned speaker designer Andrew Jones has been at the helm of the Debut series since the beginning. Jones himself designs the magnets, woofers, crossovers, and enclosures for each Debut speaker, which allows for high-quality components without the added cost of outsourcing parts and supplies.

A high-quality crossover directs traffic  

One of the DFR52's performance secrets is its custom-designed multi-element crossover. Jones uses this important component to ensure smooth frequency distribution between each of the drivers. The result is full, natural sound from a floor-stander that won't wreak havoc on your budget.
