A taste of high-end audio at a down-to-earth price
ELAC's original Uni-Fi bookshelf speakers set a high bar for performance and value, and they racked up lots of rave reviews from Crutchfield customers along the way. ELAC's UB52 bookshelf pair — from the newly refreshed Uni-Fi 2.0 Series — promises an even better taste of the high-end audio experience, at a price point that's more accessible than you might expect for speakers this good.
A concentric midrange/tweeter array provides clarity
ELAC has kept much of what made the original Uni-Fi Series so cool, including a concentric driver array that places the tweeter in the middle of the midrange driver. This precise alignment creates a "unified source," ensuring that all frequencies arrive at your ears at the same instant, producing more coherent and accurate sound.
What's new with version 2.0?
The Uni-Fi 2.0 Series features all-new drivers. The UB52's 1" soft-dome tweeter produces better high- and low-frequency extension than the previous series, for improved blending with the newly designed 4" aluminum midrange. And the 5-1/4" aluminum woofer sports a dished cone made from a single piece of aluminum, for better stiffness. The woofer's new cone, oversized magnet, and large-diameter voice coil allow improved bass accuracy and dynamics.
New crossovers help lighten the load on your amp
The driver updates, along with a newly redesigned crossover, make the Uni-Fi 2.0 Series easier for your amplifier to drive than their predecessors. They have a nominal impedance rating of 6 ohms instead of 4 ohms, which means they should work better with a wider range of receivers and amps.
