Product Description

Elac FS 509 VX-JET Speakers replicate even the most challenging audio materials with unheard of authority and effortless dynamics regardless of room size. This quad-way, bass-reflex design features the VX-JET tweeter with innovative dial so audio can be adjusted to the listener’s preference from the pinpoint near-field imaging to room-filling stereophonic music.

Giants of sound

The acclaimed ELAC VX-JET transducer of the Line 500 series combines variable X-JET suspension and a renowned JET tweeter with a ring-radiator midrange driver in a concentric array for remarkable sound. This was developed on the understanding that every room presents varied acoustic properties so the same loudspeaker produces different results from one room to the next. The speaker allows for stepless adjustment of the complete drive unit by up to 8mm in front of and behind the front baffle.

By altering the VX-JET's position, it is possible to refine the audio dispersion properties in the mid to high-frequency range. This transforms the tonal balance and the relationship between direct and diffused sound. As a consequence, VX-JET enables for the first time the creation of uniform and accurately etched 3D soundstage in different rooms and at varying distances. The Crystal Membrane midrange and bass drivers based on Aluminum-Sandwich technology afford peak stiffness and unrivaled performance within their frequency ranges. Integrated is the finest crossover components and outside cabinets are beautifully finished delivering ELAC's passion for flawless detail.

Crystal membrane drivers

The appealing surface of the crystal membrane is not only a stunning design feature. All woofers and midrange drivers of the Line 500 employ the Crystal Membrane (patent pending) and their design is based on ELAC’s Aluminum-Sandwich AS Technology. The crystal-shaped inverse aluminum dome is joined to the paper cone in a special gluing process to result in the desired sandwich construction.

Resembling the surface of a large crystal, the aluminum-foil stamping reinforces the aluminum dome clearing resonances and minimising coloration while enhancing power handling and dynamics. The voice coil design of the midrange and bass drivers led to an expanded range of the respective drivers by almost an octave. The broad, double-asymmetrical rubber surround of ELAC’s TT 180 woofer proceses up to ±15mm excursions for genuienly prodigious volume and lowest distortion, a unique engineering feat for a driver of its size.

JET 5 tweeter

Delivering authentic HD sound, ELAC’s JET 5 tweeter impresses with its lightning-fast response and broad dynamic range granting minimal distortion, abundant headroom and a distinctly broader frequency range than typical dome tweeters. ELAC JET tweeter is among the most legendary tweeters in the industry and has won global acclaim with its transparent and effortless sound image.

JET tweeter is based on the famous Air Motion Transformer by loudspeaker pioneer Dr. Oskar Heil. It works using a concertinaed-foil membrane driven by a strong magnet system of neodymium rods which moves the air relatively faster than the pistonic motion of a standard driver resulting in higher sensitivity and extraordinary dynamics. An improved neodymium magnet system paired with other upgrades contributes to an even higher efficiency and sound pressure level as well as extending frequency response up to 50kHz.

The core is a foil membrane folded to 0.84mm. For consistency across the high production capacity, gluing and handling is undertaken by two SCARA robots while the folding and fixing is done by hand as Elac understands craftmanship of skilled technicians is inimitable. JET 5 tweeter produces an effortless, airy and resonance-free image with a linear frequency response suitable for DVD-A and SACD.

Grille magnets

Elac FS 509 VX-JET speakers feature a metal grille that is attached via only the force of magnets concealed beneath the cabinet's surface. Those wanting to listen without a grill and aesthetic appeal will appreciate the pure design and seamless surfaces of the pristine ELAC cabinetry.


For ultimate treble and bass frequency detail, there are two pairs of terminals that provide a convenient solution for bi-wiring or bi-amping. These premium, gold-plated terminals are suitable for wider cable cross sections and high-quality spade lugs.

HD spike

The spikes are machined from solid brass with a bright chrome finish. These huge spikes use a M10 thread and ensure secure positioning with solid, stable footing with necessary clearance to the floor.

Aluminum baskets

To reduce mechanical vibrations and assure optimum rigidity, the baskets for cone drivers utilised are made of cast aluminum instead of pressed or stamped steel.

Magnetic shielding

Watch television free from colour distortion. Thanks to magnetic shielding, CC 501 VX-JET can be installed next to CRT screens or devices with hard drives sensitive to magnets with no interference.
