ELAC UB5 overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy balanced stereo sound with your amplifier and this pair of ELAC Uni-Fi UB5 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers. They feature a 3-way design with a 1" soft dome tweeter concentrically mounted to a 4" aluminum cone midrange driver, and a 5.25" aluminum cone woofer. The speakers accept 40 to 140W of power from your amplifier, have a 46 Hz to 25 kHz frequency response, and were designed by Andrew Jones.

Concentric Tweeter and Midrange
Positioning the 1" soft-dome tweeter and aluminum 4" midrange cone concentrically helps achieve a uniform directivity pattern for flat frequency response and enhanced imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions.
Aluminum Woofers
With aluminum, resonances that affect the linearity of paper cones can be placed beyond the driver's operating frequency range. An extended-size magnet with a vented pole piece is designed to increase power handling for accurate reproduction of bass frequencies that are clean and clear.
Three-Way Crossover
The three-way crossover is designed to ensure smooth transition between the drivers.
Braced MDF Cabinet
The internal bracing is designed to add stiffness and strength to the cabinet's MDF outer walls, helping to reduce cabinet vibration that causes unwanted coloration.
Magnetically Attached Grille
When the protective grille is removed, hidden magnets beneath the surface of the cabinet keep the front panel free of attachment holes for a clean appearance.

    ELAC UB5 reviews

    Uni-Fi UB5 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was hopping for something better... Those speakers are not "bad" but they sound way too flat... that could be what they mean by "audiophile sound"... But for my taste, this lifeless sound, lack of dynamic an clarity are the main reason I've sold mine and will not buy again. Thus may not stop you for buying cause many people may like this "flat" sound... Also note that they does not come with any protective grill so don't let them in the same room as young kids that like the shiny silver cone of those speakers. On a good note, they are VERY well built!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speakers Incredible value - well made, terrific sound, and despite some of the reviews, a beautiful black finish. A little weak on the low end, but a sub-woofer quickly fixes that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced Remarkably open and airy sound, with surprising low frequency extension and clarity for a bookshelf speaker of its size. Very clean and balanced presentation - Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing speakers at an amazing price These sound like speakers at least twice their price range, amazing definition, clarity and surprising bass range given the subwoofer element is only 6". Just make sure your receiver has enough power to drive them at 4 ohm (I use an HK AVR130). Also kudos for B&H for their great service.
