ELAC FS 187 - You have to hear it and touch it, because it is simply so
beautiful and unostentatious. The Kiel-based company has certainly hit
the bull's-eye with the distinct styling of the new 180 series.
You have to hear it and touch it, because it is simply so beautiful and unostentatious. The Kiel-based company has certainly hit the bull's-eye with the distinct styling of the new 180 series. The design is simple, elegant and timeless; the speakers are utilitarian and at the same time even affordable.
This slender beauty works like her big sister, the FS 189, also using “down firing”. That means each FS 187 is equipped with 2 bass ports. One emits sound toward the back, the other downwards onto the base plate. The effect of the actual lengthening of the base port is deeper bass tuning. This arrangement also works as an acoustic low-pass filter. The rear projection bass port comes closed off with a bass control plug. By removing it, bass reproduction can be intensified.
