ELAC DEBUT S10
10-inch 200-Watt* Powered Subwoofer
Add the Debut S10 powered subwoofer to your main speakers and hear bass you never knew existed. With 200 Watts* built-in, there’s plenty of power to deliver rock-solid low frequencies that make your favorite music and soundtracks come alive with the weight and presence of a live performance.
DEBUT SUBWOOFERS: BASS THAT TAKES YOU DOWN
Audiophiles know that recreating the very lowest frequencies is key to accurate music reproduction. Yet most affordable systems are compromised in the critical bottom octaves.
CUSTOM BASS DRIVERS
Custom long-throw drivers provide bass that is fundamental to accurately reproducing today's demanding music and movie soundtracks. Both S10 and S10EQ subwoofers employ a 10-inch driver, while the S12EQ employs a 12-inch unit. Both the S10EQ and S12EQ also employ a single 10-inch and 12-inch passive radiator, respectively, which improve the transient response and increase the efficiency of the system.
THE CHALLENGE FOR SUBWOOFER AMPLIFIERS
Audio quality and power efficiency have long been at odds when it comes to amplifier design. Traditional Class AB amplifiers, which account for about 90 percent of all amplifiers made, are capable of producing prodigious power and excellent sound, but do so at the expense of efficiency. In fact, up to 50 percent of these amplifiers’ energy is wasted, dissipated as heat. Heat becomes an added liability when such amplifiers, in the case of powered subwoofers, are enclosed in a speaker cabinet. Class D switching amplifiers, on the other hand, run cool and occupy relatively little space. Compact, lightweight and efficient, they are a sensible choice for the latest applications, especially when used for powering subwoofers. Until recently, however, the sound quality achieved by typical Class D designs has not been suitable for the best audio applications, but new technology has improved these designs to compete with the best of traditional amplifier topologies.
ENTER BASH® AMPLIFICATION
BASH (Bridged Amplifier Switching Hybrid) amplifiers, introduced in the mid 1990s as a “best of both worlds” solution for subwoofer amplification, combine the sound quality of Class AB with the efficiency of a Class D amplifier. While a Class AB amp uses fixed supply voltage regardless of input signal, BASH uses a Class D amplifier with power supply modulation to track the input signal, supplying only the necessary voltage to the Class AB amp as needed. The latest BASH technology has gone through three core evolutions and is further refined in these latest ELAC Debut subwoofers.
AUTO POWER ON/OFF
Debut subwoofers will detect when audio is being sent to the unit and power on. Also, to conserve energy, the subwoofer will power off after a long period of inactivity.
