The ELAC WS 1665 acoustic system is the top model in this series. According to its technical characteristics and the nature of the sound, the speaker is very close to traditional floor standing speakers, but it is designed for wall placement. The user can fix ELAC WS 1665 on the wall on their own, without the help of specialists, since the whole procedure is very simple. The speaker can be installed vertically or horizontally (for example, when used in the center channel of a home theater) and has a wide and even polar pattern.
The emitters on the front panel of the ELAC WS 1665 are arranged according to the d’Appolito scheme, which ensures the coordinated operation of all emitters. In the center is the branded JET V ribbon tweeter with a characteristic yellow membrane hidden behind a metal grille. This transducer operates in the frequency range up to 50 kHz, which provides a detailed and airy acoustic sound, so appreciated by many music lovers. On both sides of the tweeter are 115 mm woofers with AS-XR cones – another ELAC patented development. These speakers are loaded with a side-mounted bass-reflex port and are included in 1.5-way configurations with a crossover frequency set to 600 Hz. The tweeter receives the sound signal from 3600 Hz, so that the reproduction of the mid-frequency range is smooth and natural. The speakers are connected to a crossover filter made from selected components, and its input unit is equipped with a pair of gold-plated screw terminals. The speaker cabinet is reinforced with internal ties and has deep damping, which eliminates sound coloration even at the highest volume.
The speaker is a simple load for any modern integrated amplifier or AV receiver and is able to provide a rich and dynamic sound even at low power input. ELAC WS 1665 has a universal sound character for high-quality reproduction of music of any genre, and will also show itself perfectly in a home theater.
