Concentro Center Channel

Concentro S501 Center Channel Speaker

There is no doubt about it—the S501 Center Channel is a true Concentro in every respect, in a much smaller package. It's the perfect partner of the Concentro series, both in terms of appearance and performance in a multi-channel system. 


The progressive design elements from the Concentro Series combined with the clean lines of the Vela Series to create a strong visual presence. The trapezoid basic shape, convex shaped baffle, and gently angled cabinet combine in a strikingly organic way to create a strong visual statement.


The extensive list of patented features and the revised woofer magnet system guarantee superlative sound. The effortless performance can be adjusted to suit the room acoustics. Close your eyes and you’ll instantly forget you’re listening to a compact speaker ... all you hear is music.


The Concentro S507 is available in black and white high-gloss finishes .

The Concentro S501 Center Channel

Absolute Performance Meets Home Theater

The ELAC Concentro Center high-end center loudspeaker is the perfect partner of the Concentro series, both in terms of appearance and performance in its multi-channel system. With the same patented features of the Concentro—JET Tweeter, AS-XR Crystal Woofers, adjustable Tone Ring, and a revised woofer magnet system—you can now have Concentro level of performance from a Bookshelf Speaker.

Design Methodology

Modern Hybrid Design

Creating the Concentro experience in a smaller package is no easy feat. For the Concentro S series loudspeakers, we've taken the progressive design elements from the Concentro Series and combined them with the clean lines of the Vela Series to create a strong visual presence that is ported to a classic center format. The baffle that escapes on all sides, the trapezoidal basic shape, and the impressive dimensions come together in a strikingly organic way.

Directivity Control Ring (DCR) Technology

Exchangeable Wave Guides to Optimize Listening

Since no two rooms are the same, midrange directivity can be adjusted using three exchangeable Directivity Control Rings (DCRs). This provides the ability to optimize the Concentro S Loudspeakers for the listening space. They range from more Direct (often preferred for nearfield) to more Diffuse (often preferred for farther listening positions).

Crystal Membrane Driver

Engineered for Low Distortion

Based on ELAC’s Aluminum-Sandwich AS Technology. Resembling the surface of a large crystal, the aluminum-foil stamping stiffens the aluminum dome, diminishing resonances and minimizing coloration, while improving power handling and dynamics. The voice coil design of the drivers results in an expanded frequency range, and driver surround allows for longer cone excursions for truly prodigious volume and lowest distortion, a unique engineering achievement for a driver of its size.

JET 5 Tweeter

Lightning-Fast Response and Wide Dynamic Range

Delivering true high-definition sound, ELAC’s JET 5 tweeter enthralls with its lightning-fast response and wide dynamic range, offering minimal distortion, lots of headroom, and a distinctly wider frequency range than conventional dome tweeters. The ELAC JET tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in the industry and has won international praise for its transparent and effortless sound image.
