Product Description

Elac Adante AC 61 Centre Speaker is the no-compromise centre channel speaker in the Adante Series matching the performance of the other speakers in the range so surround and home theatre fans can build a system with truly impressive sound. A highly-recommended dedicated center stand is available.

AC-61 represents a “clean sheet” design unique to ELAC where technical solutions, precision engineering and superior craftsmanship unite for a distinguished trio of loudspeakers. Elac encourages you to challenge Adante with everything you’ve got.

Adante Series

After impressing with it Debut and Uni-Fi series, Elac developed Adante to bring excellent value to a new price point. Adante redefines the possibilities of what an affordable loudspeaker can achieve. The advanced design begins with a precision-made cabinet incorporating Interport-Coupled Cavity bass loading for highest performance from new active and passive bass drive units.

Matching Adante’s custom low-frequency drivers is the all-new concentric midrange/tweeter, a lifelike-sound engineered specifically for Adante. Each cabinet features a furniture-grade finish in gloss white, gloss black or satin walnut veneer. The facsia is an elegant, bonded-aluminum front baffle for top rigidity contoured to incorporate waveguides that ensure optimum dispersion from each driver.


The engineering challenges and complex needs of this design make it rare in the world of affordable speakers and a new value-to-performance benchmark. Each Adante cabinet is multiple enclosures in one. The concentric midrange/tweeter is isolated within the cabinet and the woofer comprises an active and passive driver occupying a divided chamber vented internally with dual ports. The entire enclosure is not externally ported as this would produce noise and distortion if the speaker is overdriven.

A coupled-cavity design means the active driver stays invisible mounted internally in its own rear box that vents bass energy through dual bass ports to a front box hosting a larger passive radiator. The piston action of this front-firing passive driver delivers low-frequency that is tight, tuneful, extended and has greater output capacity. Acoustically, the front box becomes a second-order acoustic low pass filter removing the need for two orders of electrical network, further lowering driver distortion. This also translates to clean, distortion-free, lifelike, precise, authoritative bass that defies convention and challenges far costlier competitors.

Two amazing woofers

Crucial to Adante’s superior performance is two new woofers that provide remarkable low frequency performance surpassing less complex driver and cabinet solutions. Engineered to compliment the elaborate Interport-Coupled Cavity cabinet design, the first woofer is a 6.5" active driver with wideband frequency response featuring an aluminum cone and cast basket assembly with substantial magnet and voice coil. Mounted within the complex cabinet structure, it is hidden from sight but its presence is readily apparent to the ear.

Coupled to this is a lightweight 8-inch passive radiator; Front-firing and mounted to the bonded-aluminum front baffle of the speaker cabinet with a stiff aluminum diaphragm and cast basket array. Low mass makes the passive radiator faster and less prone to distortion so air is moved faster with minimal coloration. This combination can handle all the power needed to deliver crushing low-frequencies with the dynamic realism of a live performance.

Concentric midrange/tweeter

ELAC’s patented concentric driver technology is taken to new heights with an all-new design that provides astounding point-source accuracy, linearity, power handling, speed and articulation. The huge 5.25" diameter midrange cone, constructed of pure aluminum for top rigidity with lowest coloration, has an improved profile and ample 2" voice coil for better output level and higher sensitivity.

The larger voice coil also grants more room to host the newly-engineered tweeter in the center. This soft-dome design incorporates new fabric and has a wide surround for improved lower-treble output, lower resonant and crossover frequencies. The entire concentric driver structure is mechanically isolated from the other drivers and the cabinet with anti-vibration fixtures.

Four binding posts

Adante AC 61 is equipped with a dual set of binding posts. An included link allows use of a single pair of speaker cables and only two posts while dual posts add the option of bi-wiring with a single amplifier or choosing bi-amplification with two amplifiers; one for the concentric midrange/tweeter and the other for low-frequency drivers.

Dedicated support

Optional stands (not included) are specifically designed by ELAC to complement the design and enhance performance. Aluminum center columns are hollow and can be filled for additional mass. A steel top plate is predrilled to correspond to threaded inserts in the base of each speaker. The base plate of each stand is machined from solid, 4mm-thick steel for added stability. Custom-made, adjustable locking spikes are fitted at each corner.
