Elac Vela VFS 407 (Pair)


 Floorstand speaker (2.5-way w/JET 5-fold ribbon tweeter)

The kind of speaker I’d love owning


The FS 407’s JET 5 folded ribbon tweeter is hand-assembled in Germany to ensure top-notch performance.

A unique tweeter yields superb sound

The VELA FS 407 uses ELAC’s renowned JET 5 folded ribbon tweeter, which is hand-assembledin Germany to ensure the best possible quality.

This unique design works like the bellows in an accordion, squeezing air quickly and precisely to produce sound. Highs are incredibly smooth and detailed, while offering a realistic three-dimensional feeling of sound in space.

This speaker brings the bass, too

The FS 407 delivers ultra-smooth midrange and deep, rhythmic bass, thanks to its2-1/2-way, three-driver design. It uses one of its 6″aluminum and paper “sandwich” woofersfor bass frequencies, and the other formidbass/midrange.

Each driver features a die-cast basket and a unique, crystal-shaped cone design for punchy, musical bass that can fill even large rooms.

Ideal for music and for movies

Use a pair of FS 407s with confidence as part of an audiophile-grade stereo system, or as the front channels of an ELAC VELA Series surround sound system.

Whether you’re enjoying your favorite album or the latest superhero movie, you’ll appreciate the crystal-clear, vividly realistic sound these speakers produce.

Upscale fit and finish

The FS 407 uses a sturdy, reinforced enclosure to reduce vibration and eliminate unwanted resonance. Its beautiful, grille-less design features a wood veneer exterior and a high-gloss lacquer finish.

You’ll want a powerhouse amp to drive them

The FS 407s have a nominal impedance of 4 ohms.

In particular, I recommend matching them with ELAC’sAlchemy Series DPA-2amplifier. This high-end, space-saving amp offers plenty of power for the FS 407s to reach their full potential.
