Building upon its performance, Carina continues ELAC’s tradition of utilizing the JET tweeter, chosen for its amazing clarity, dynamics and attack. To match this capability, a new in-house developed proprietary compound curvature aluminum coned woofer is seamlessly blended via a sophisticated
multi-element xover to produce an organic life like sound experience. Fresh looks, fresh sound; the new Carina is destined to further enhance ELACs class leading reputation.

ELAC's JET-powered tweeter

Instead of the concentric tweeter/midrange combo found in many other ELAC speakers, the Carina BS243.4 features ELAC's famous JET folded ribbon tweeter. The tweeter element is extremely thin and lightweight, and suspended in a magnetic field, so it's able to accelerate with incredible speed, to reproduce the subtlest music details.

A cutting-edge aluminum woofer that can keep up

To match the capabilities of the JET tweeter and create a seamless transition from woofer to tweeter, ELAC chose a 5-1/4" aluminum cone design. Its "compound curvature" shape helps control cone breakup and moves it beyond the woofer's operating frequency range. A large-diameter voice coil precisely controls the woofer's stop-start motion, and contributes to this speaker's exceptionally dynamic sound.

The BS243.4 has a bass-reflex enclosure with a port that fires downward from the bottom of the cabinet. This should minimize any port "chuffing" noise, allowing the speakers to be placed close to the wall behind them. Positioning the speakers about 12" out from the back wall seems to work well in many rooms.
