A taller tower of power.
The flagship floorstander of the Uni-Fi Slim series is a beautiful, precision instrument that offers advanced technology with its concentric midrange/high-frequency transducer and proprietary aluminum-cone drivers. These support a 3-way, bass-reflex design that delivers a sound and appearance unequalled at their price point. Add a subwoofer to create a very serious two-channel system, or use it as the heart of a no-compromise surround set up.
Custom-designed concentric driver
The delicacy of a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter and the harmonic accuracy of a rigid aluminum 4-inch midrange cone come together in a symphony of sonic perfection. Positioning the tweeter concentrically within the midrange voice coil achieves a uniform directivity pattern, for flat frequency response and formidable power handling, along with enhanced imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions.
Balanced three-way design
A three-way speaker offers many advantages in the design of a full-range system. By assigning dedicated drivers to high, mid- and bass frequencies, each is optimized for the frequency range for which its design and material composition is best suited. Drivers like the groundbreaking concentric midrange-tweeter of the Uni-Fi Slim series perform at their best, while larger, aluminum-cone woofers handle the frequency ranges in which they perform best. At the same time, a three-way speaker complement allows for a more straightforward crossover and cabinet design, eliminating complex and costly solutions.
The Uni-Fi Slim enclosures are narrower, taller and deeper than the original Uni-Fi series, engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls. Yet each has been carefully engineered to maintain the same internal volume, resulting in sonic characteristics indistinguishable from the originals. The cabinets incorporate specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibration, which causes unwanted coloration to the sound. ELAC believes that the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.
