With the new Solano Series, ELAC presents three new speaker models, the BS 283 bookshelf, FS 287 floorstanding and CC 281 centre speaker.

Made In Germany

Made at the brand’s  German manufacturing site in Kiel, he Solano Series remains faithful to ELACs design principles, forms, and materials. Rather than emphasizing individual elements, ELAC says they focus on their joint performance. ELAC chose a sleek rectangular shape combined with a gently curved front baffle, lacquer finish, solid aluminium base plate, and front-facing drive units.

ELAC Solano loudspeaker family


In keeping with ELAC’s design principles, the Solano Series comes with the JET5 tweeter, which supports the mid and low-frequency ranges with a driver that combines a smooth, anodized aluminium membrane with their AS-XR assembly process. What isn’t visible is the membrane’s unique AS-XR sandwich construction.

You can choose between mono-wiring, bi-wiring or even bi-amping. The down-firing system in the BS 283 and FS 287 offers an effective way of balancing the loudspeakers with the acoustics of your room.
