The ”Uni-fi” in this speaker’s name comes from its unique driver arrangement. Using a design commonly associated with KEF, ELAC uses a concentric driver that places a 1” soft dome tweeter in the middle of a 4” midrange cone driver. This allows high and midrange sounds to reach your ears at exactly the same time, for a superior soundstage and imaging.

Dayton pulled off an amazing feat here, putting a 6.5” woofer and electrostatic tweeter in a pair of bookshelf speakers that usually go for well under $100. Check out the inexpensive crossover mod if you want to tame the treble a bit more.

Note: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker.

These measurements do not take into account variations in the speaker shape, such as curves, diagonal edges, or cutaways. These measurements cannot be relied upon to measure the internal volume of the speaker.
