JET – An Audio Legend
Often imitated, never equalled. The JET tweeter is synonymous with the ELAC brand.
In 1993 ELAC took over the air motion transformer tweeter system from the Berlin speaker company ARES. Over the years this has been fundamentally re-engineered acoustically and its production process optimised. ELAC trademarked the JET name and it is seen as a classic ELAC driver, featured in many of ELAC’s most famous products.
In 2005 ELAC coupled the JET tweeter with a midrange driver to produce a dual concentric driver, the VX-JET. The dual concentric driver used in the flagship Concentro loudspeakers is derived from this.
