The power to impress
Standing over 130cm tall, the FS 409 is no shrinking violet. This large capacity speaker suits larger rooms and is also ideal as the front speakers in a powerful Vela home cinema speaker system.
Supersonic sound from the JET 5 tweeter
Sensational realism and breathtaking top-end clarity are at the very heart of the ELAC Vela FS 409’s core appeal. Much of this is thanks to the legendary JET 5 tweeter. Using a folded foil membrane, this intricately engineered tweeter reaches an astonishing 50,000Hz. Although this is beyond human hearing, it reduces harmonic distortion lower down the spectrum, meaning the sound we can hear is the sound of total purity.
Hear every breath of action with the dedicated mid-range
Equally impressive attention to detail is shown by ELAC’s crystal membrane woofer units. The dedicated mid-range woofer uses aluminium-sandwich technology folded to resemble a large crystal. This provides exceptional rigidity and lightness, giving minimal distortion and letting you hear every tiny detail of music.
Featuring a downward-firing bass port, the FS 409 delivers smooth, punchy bass. The downward port makes the speaker easier to position in your room and also helps reduce distortion to the lowest levels, ensuring the bass timing is always on the beat. With the twin cones dedicated to producing bass and help from a large cabinet, bass is window-rattling powerful – right down to a subwoofer rivalling 28Hz.
Every part of the FS 409 is finished to the highest standards. At the top, a black anodized aluminium plate enhances the finish. At the base end, the downward-firing port is incorporated in to a die-cast plinth giving both seamless style and immense stability. Choose between black or white high gloss lacquer finishes for contemporary style or an equally sumptuous high gloss walnut veneer for a more traditional appeal.
