The ELA-4 sub woofer ratings and data provide the information you need to see this is a great sub for both movies and for music. And it does all this at an affordable price too.

The best subs are also musical

There’s nothing worse than “one note bass” that just thuds and thumps with no articulation. The ELA-4 will never be found guilty of this sin. It tracks each note, each transient perfectly, with perfect pitch and just the right amount of impact. If your material calls for lots of gut wrenching bass, this sub will deliver. But it does more than just offer a thrilling home theater experience. And this is where most other subwoofers leave a lot to be desired. Most subwoofers can’t play music to save their life. The ELA-4 was designed with music in mind. In fact all our products are designed with music in mind first. Then we make sure they also have the capability to also offer slam and extension. The ELA-4 is so musical in fact, that its performance is capable of working well in systems much more costly than you would think. Have some speakers that cost over 10K? Fine, the ELA-4 subwoofer will easily keep up and mate with them.

Home theater impact

Offering a 12” high excursion driver that is capable of almost 2” of excursion, this system can really move some air. That in itself is maybe not so impressive. The interesting thing is that it also does this with very low distortion. So you get deep bass, but you also get ‘quiet’ deep bass, that only tracks the sounds on the recorded DVD or Blu Ray. What does that mean? It means the enclosure and the motor are not making their own sounds that ‘add to’ the sounds on the recording. That’s what you want. A system that only plays what is on the recording. And this is what the ELA-4 subwoofer does so well. It neither adds nor subtracts from the sound you should be hearing. It plays the notes and makes perfectly clear what that sound is. Whether it’s an explosion with metal shards flying all over the place or a symphony orchestra playing at full tilt with canon fire, the ELA-4 Sub woofer is there to deliver. And deliver it will.

How can it do this?

The cabinet is built to a standard you just don’t see offered anywhere else. Ever see a subwoofer cabinet that is this well braced? Ever see one made out of 100% Baltic Birch Ply? How about 1” thick cabinet walls also? Finding another product on the market that has all of what the ELA-4 sub woofer offers is going to be a tall order. This is why we can offer a 90 day money back guarantee. That’s how sure we are you will agree that this is one very special subwoofer.
