ELAC FS 189 - AUDIO (Germany) review

... "And, indeed encouraged, the measurements in the audio lab amazing to day: 112 dB maximum SPL, coupled with the very ordinary sensitivity of 86.5 decibels. These results demonstrate truly exceptional headroom (maximum volume) and on top of the spare amplifier connected . ... The developers relieve the speaker in the lower octaves, where the stroke is greatest. This vote will not only ensure that the three 17.5-inch chassis compress or later strike at all, it reduces our dependence on free installation and large spaces.
