The ELAC 301.2 redefines the standard for small systems and brings the technology of a much larger, high end speaker in a tiny package. This is possible due to the optimized driver with an oval aluminium sandwich woofer stacked with a silk fabric dome tweeter in an asymmetrical coaxial array. The advantage is a wider ideal listening zone and a sound with a quality that becomes wonderfully detached from the speakers and which is less depending on the listeners position. Incidentally the size of the woofer was maximized which contributes to the maximum possible SPL and ultimately enables this kind of performance at the small size given.

Wall brackets are included. Desktop stands and floorstands (LS-Stand Cinema) are available separately as an option.

Al-Basket
To minimize mechanical vibrations the baskets are made of casted aluminum for a maximum of rigidity.

Al-Sandwich
The rigidity of the aluminium aluminum combined with the damping of a cellulose layer - thanks to aluminium aluminum sandwich technology, the audio reproduction achieved by ELAC bass drivers is very precise.

In a special glueing procedure, an aluminium foil of 0.2 mm is joint to a pulp fibre cone to form a sandwich membrane.
The result: reduced partial oscillations, no distortions and an optimized large signal behaviour.
In combination with the aluminum-coloured tweeters, the aluminum sandwich woofers also make innovative technology a visual experience.

Coaxial
Thanks to their coaxial design, not only do the bass drivers and tweeters never miss a beat, with their compact design they also complement each other perfectly. Sometimes the best things come in small packages.
Early in the R&D process of the 301.2 coaxial driver the idea was to improve the sound performance of a bass driver based on a predefined enclosure size. The solution came quickly and led to the present oval shape. More difficult was the design and integration of the tweeter. The goal was being compact without compromising sound quality. After initial listening tests a fabric dome version was out of question. In search of the ideal position of the tweeter, multiple listening sessions proved that a concentric orientation of both drivers did not deliver acceptable results. This finally led to the asymmetric coaxial array. After further listening tests and multiple measurements it was obvious that a premium and well-balanced solution in this particular case could only be achieved far from what the textbooks would suggest.

Fabric Dome
Even at higher volumes, the fabric dome tweeter always provides a smooth audio experience.

Transparent sound is reproduced by this 25 mm tweeter consisting of a coated silk dome resulting in a smooth roll off at frequencies above 20,000 Hz without noticeable resonances. A special wave-guide together with the protection grille results its wide dispersion characteristics.
Its extraordinary power handling capacity is resulting from two design features: the compact high efficiency neodymium magnetic system with cooling fins and the aluminium voice coil cooled by ferro-fluid.

Additionally, the magnetic system is shielded.
Due to the new faceplate (back high gloss) only the tweeter grille and woofer diaphragm are visible, the kick of the new 60.2 Series. 

Magn. Shielding
Watch television without having distorted color - thanks to magnetic shielding these ELAC speakers can be installed right next to CRT screens or devices with hard drives sensitive to magnets.
Thanks to the magnetic shielding, these speakers can also be set up in proximity to cathode ray tube TVs or devices with integrated hard disks or attached to them without creating interference.

In conjunction with Hitachi Capital we have sourced a range of finance plans to suit everyone. This can be offered for purchases over £200.00.

Buy Now Pay Later

Buy Now Pay Later is available on the majority of products we sell. No interest is payable as long as the full balance of the agreement has been cleared before the end of the 12 month period. You can elect to pay a deposit or not and you can control the payments on this agreement. You can settle the agreement early without any penalty and one payment can be left until the just before the end of agreement. You can also make regular payments by contacting Hitachi Capital.

Please note that monthly payments will commence 12 months from the date your agreement starts and will be payable of the same day of each subsequent month at an APR of 29.8% with interest calculated over 48 months on the original amount. If you settle any outstanding balance before the first repayment is due along with the administration fee of £29.00 then all interest charges are waived.

Although you will be contacted by Hitachi Capital as it reaches the end of the interest free period we highly recommend the client also diarises this separately due to the high APR if the balance is not fully cleared.

18 month Interest Free Finance

A new 18 month % free finance is also available on SELECTED products. Payments are balanced over the 18 month period with no interest on financed amount. You can elect to pay a deposit or not. No settlement fees are applied.

Interest Bearing Credit

Interest bearing finance is available over 24, 36 or 48 months at an APR of 19.9%. You can elect to pay a deposit or not. No settlement fees are applied. We can provide the monthly payment figures once the purchase(s) have been finalised.

All the applications can be completed by the customer and a link will be emailed to the application page. If preferred we can take the details over the phone and can normally confirm acceptance of your application status during the call. There are different consumer laws depending on whether the agreement is for an in-store purchase or distance selling.

Release of goods

Due to the statutory cooling off period for consumers please note that goods cannot be released for 14 days after the date the agreement was signed by the customer if details are taken over the phone. For those completing forms at our store goods purchased can be released immediately. We recommend contacting us before arranging a visit to Kent Home Cinema to ensure we have stock of the item as some of these are specifically ordered in for clients. The agreement can be pre-authorised before travelling to us to prevent a wasted trip. Please note that installation fees cannot be added to finance agreements – only the hardware.

All agreements are subject to status and in the event they are declined we are not given any reasons by the lender. We can provide contact details should the customer wish to appeal their decision.

Please call 01892 552563 for further details.
