”Yet again, the Elac Debut B5.2 are the best speakers you'll find at this price.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2023 award-winner.

Perfect for movies and music

The handy size makes the Debut B5.2 ideal for a wide range of applications. Perfect as stereo speakers in a smaller room, the Debut B5.2 also suits being paired up with one of the matching subwoofers (Sub 10.2, Sub 10EQ or Sub 12EQ) and being used as part of a sub/sat system in a larger room. With matching centre and effect speakers available, it can also play a role in the versatile Debut 2.0 home cinema system.

Custom design by Andrew Jones
Both the tweeter and bass drivers are custom designed by renowned audio expert, Andrew Jones. The drive units deliver an exceptional audio experience that’s hard to match with typical off-the-shelf parts.

Enhanced bass response
Utilising a bass reflex cabinet with front port enhances the bass efficiency of this compact speaker. With its trademark, woven aramid fibre cone, it also delivers a fast and punchy bass that suits all types of music.

Top end precision
The custom-designed tweeter waveguide with deep, spheroid profile is utilized to improve directional control and shield the silk dome tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction. The result is superb high frequency precision, letting you hear every detail of sound in absolute clarity.

Superb as stereo speakers or part of the Debut 2.0 home cinema speaker package, the Debut B5.2 speakers make a flexible choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Speaker Had these for a while now, and use them with the Cambridge Audio EVO150, I did not want something to upset the Neighbours, but they can as they punch well above the price range, and sound crisp and clean, for the Money you would have to spend double to just match their performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front Porting still works Bought to replace wharfedale 9.1s, also front ported. Tested against equivalent price rear ported speakers with speakers placed 6" from wall as I would have to place them at home. The Elacs were far better with more controlled bass and clearer separation of the sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous sound I added the Elac Debut B5.2s my F5.2s and C5.2. Brilliant sound quality. I would recommend Elac to anyone looking for quality and priced for any budget

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elac Debut B5.2 Speakers. Elac Debut B5.2 speakers ordered via Richer Sounds Oxford. Having allowed them to 'run in' for 48 hours or so, I was very pleasantly surprised by how good these budget speakers sounded - a really well rounded sound with excellent detail and strong bass performance without 'booming' or drowning out the treble and mid-range. Forward facing bass port works well and good for mounting closer to a wall if required. I bought these as a second set of speakers for listening to my hifi in another room, but they're very nearly as good to listen to as the main set of speakers costing several times as much. I would certainly recommend these speakers - excellent build quality and value for money given the superb sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact speakers, great value for money. ELAC Debut B5.2 PROS These speakers are precise at picking out individual instruments and separating them from each other rather than producing an harmonious rounded conglomerate of sound. They handle a very wide range of frequencies with ease and have a good top end as well as a tight bass response. They are very compact, feel well built and exceptionally good value for the money. CONS If anything these speakers can sound a little too clinical (which is not particularly a bad thing if you like your sound that way like me). GENERAL I cannot say anything about the longevity of them as I have not owned them for long but if you are on a budget and want a good pair of speakers I can highly recommend them, especially with the 6 year guarantee included by Richersounds.
