ELAC Announces the Solano Line of Home Speakers

July 30th, 2021

The following is a press release from ELAC.

Orange, CA July 20th, 2021 – ELAC, a leading global provider of high-performance speakers and electronics, today announced the Solano line of premium home speakers.
These new models are the perfect solution for the 2-channel enthusiast or the home theater connoisseur.

Our new Solano series brings the performance benefits of our iconic JET5 tweeter and the meticulous craftsmanship of German manufacturing to an all-new affordable price point” said James Krodel, senior vice president sales, ELAC.

Some of the notable new features of the Solano line-up include:

JET 5 Tweeter: Delivering true high-definition sound, ELAC’s JET 5 tweeter enthralls with its lightning-fast response and wide dynamic range, offering minimal distortion, lots of headroom and a distinctly wider frequency range than conventional dome tweeters. The ELAC JET tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in the industry and has won international praise with its transparent and effortless sound image. 

Aluminum Sandwich Woofers: Custom 6″ Aluminum cones are joined to paper cones utilizing a proprietary gluing process which results in a cone that is stiff, precise, linear, and lightweight. This unique driver delivers mid and bass frequencies that are clean, clear, and powerful.

Cast Chassis: Cast chassis have been utilized for all drivers in the Solano series minimizing reflections back to the cone resulting in improved clarity.

Dual Binding Posts: All three Solano series speakers are outfitted with two sets of heavy-duty binding posts allowing to bi-amp or bi-wire each loudspeaker. These binding
posts ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. 

Premium Finishes: The Solano speakers come in either high-gloss black or white paint with the bookshelf and floorstanding models featuring lacquered cast aluminum bases.

Downward firing ports: Downward Firing Ports allow for more flexible speaker placement and minimizes ventilation noise. The bass reflex port on the Solano series is directed to the floor, exiting the bottom of the speaker cabinet in a down-firing configuration.

All six models are available at the end of July at ELAC retailers nationwide.
