*The crossover in the last photo is optional. This set comes standard in an active configuration which requires the use of either a DSP or amplifier with built-in bandpass crossovers. If you prefer to run the set with a passive crossover, please select the option in the drop-down box and it will add the MXT280C crossover.
The evolution of the iconic Elate line continues to push the boundaries of performance. From the outset the Elate Carbon Pro was developed to be more than just a new set of speakers—it was designed to bring our customers closer to their quest for an immersive musical experience that will leave you breathless.
Elate Carbon carries on the tradition of high power, high fidelity speaker systems, yet takes a leap forward in sound performance. The new Pro series is highlighted by the Elate Alto cavity-back tweeter – a high-resolution design borrowing its architecture from the Supremo Piccolo. Combined with the new carbon fiber and Rohacell cone midrange and woofers, performance is breathtaking in detail, even at extreme volume levels. No other speaker system fully envelops high-resolution and high power handling like the new Elate Carbon Pro.
DMM MOTOR - Morel’s double drive system generates more magnetic energy than a single magnet of similar size, increasing efficiency and the dynamic range. The position of the secondary magnet fixed above the top plate in the motor is the key in controlling stray magnetic flux, thus generating a more focussed magnetic field while also contributing to the “shielded” characteristic of our speakers.
EVC MOTOR - Morel speakers with EVC™ technology utilize voice coils that are up to three times larger than those used in conventional loudspeakers. The EVC™ design moves the magnetic drive system within the voice coil, eliminating stray magnetic flux by effectively directing all the magnetic energy to the voice coil. The result is an ultra-efficient and powerful design, that is highly compact with efficient heat dissipation and reduced cone breakup for lower distortion.
HANDCRAFTED ACUFLEX SOFT DOME - A specially engineered damping compound applied to the soft domes of specific Morel tweeters and midranges. The combination of these materials creates a diaphragm that exhibits controlled canceling break-up (accurate–flexing), meaning each break-up mode is counteracted by another in the opposite direction. This cancellation of break-up modes leaves nothing but the pure, natural sound Morel tweeters and midrange are famous for.
TITANIUM VOICE COIL FORMER - The bobbin material has an influence on the acoustical parameters of the driver, its power handling and the reproduced sound quality. By using a titanium bobbin, Morel intended to raise the Mechanical Factor (QMS) in order to enable a wider selection of enclosure types and sizes. As for the sound quality, one is able to discern a distinctively “crisper” sound when compared to an equivalent driver with an aluminum bobbin. The rigid characteristic of titanium, along with its other advantages produces a driver that is tonally balanced and accurate, with exceptionally fast transient response.
