Dome tweeter & woofer
The highs are reproduced in the WS 1465 by a 25 mm dome tweeter with a woven fabric membrane. Two 11.5 cm woofers with the well-known ELAC Aluminum Sandwich cone are used for the mid and low reproduction. The result is an even more open sound in the midrange and a better defined bass response.
The sturdy and elegant housing is made of MDF and has a satin finish. The finish is at a high level. The bass reflex port is subtly placed in the bottom (when viewed vertically). There are horizontal and vertical cable slots in the rear. The fronts have a magnetic attachment, so you don’t look at holes when you leave the fronts out. We supply two types of fronts, on which the ELAC logo is placed differently (for horizontal and vertical placement).
Placement & mounting
The WS 1465 can be hung both horizontally and vertically by means of the fastening eyes that are fitted in the rear. It is of course also possible to place it loose against the wall.
If you want to use the loudspeakers horizontally, it is advisable to hang or place the loudspeakers in such a way that the tweeters of both loudspeakers point either inwards or outwards for an optimal and balanced sound image. This of course applies to a stereo setup, but in a surround setup this also applies to the rear speakers. Finally, it is advisable to provide space around the bass reflex port. In a home cinema setup, we recommend using a WS 1465 as a center speaker.
