The Eltax Vintage PWR 1959 loudspeakers have been designed to reproduce all types of music as accurately as possible, provided that a few rules should be followed to optimize performance and achieve a realistic sound image. Ideally, the speakers should be placed symmetrically in front of the listening position to form an equilateral triangle. The cabinets should be placed on the floor or on an optional dedicated stand, at the same distance from the rear wall and from the adjacent side surfaces.In order to optimize the setup of the speakers in your listening room, we recommend the following tests:Above all, you should avoid positioning the loudspeakers in the corners of your room. The result will be an artificial increase in the level of bass, masking the speed and details of this range.First, adjust the spacing of the two speakers in order to find the realistic balance between a wide sound image (wide apart speakers) and a sound image respecting the punctuality of the voices (close speakers).Secondly, move the speakers away from the rear wall by steps of 10 cm to find the balance between the depth of the sound image (far from the back wall) and the level of the extreme low frequencies (close to the back wall).Finally, adjust the loudspeakers orientation by turning them gradually toward the center of the listening area. If you leave the speakers parallel, you may want to bring them closer together, if you orient them more than 30°, you may increase their spacing.


It is essential to connect the speakers using the correct polarity. Make sure to connect the “ + ” terminal of the speaker (Red) to the “ + ” output terminal of the amplifier. Then, make sure to connect the “- ” terminal of the speaker (Black) to the “ – ” output terminal of the amplifier. A wrong connection would cause a cribled stereo image and loss of bass. Use high quality speaker cable to perform.


When you take them out of the packaging, the Eltax loudspeakers are not yet able to reproduce with the same efficiency all the sound frequencies they are supposed to play. The loudspeakers are complex mechanical assemblies which need a period of adaptation (“burn-in”) to operate at their best and become acclimatized to the temperature and humidity conditions of your environment.This burn-in period may last for some weeks, but you can quicken it by operating the speakers between 100 and 150 hours consecutively, on a moderate volume with a specific burning-in CD, or by broadcasting a radio station.
