If you’re short on time and just want the highlights of this article, here it is:
The ELAC Debut Reference DBR62 speakers offer a balanced, full sound with plenty of detail. The two-way design with the 1” cloth dome tweeter and 6.5” woven aramid-fiber cone woofer provide a balanced sound. Additionally, the dual-flared ports and full-perimeter brace minimize cabinet coloration and chassis resonances. The speakers are also very versatile, with multiple audio inputs and outputs, as well as Bluetooth connection.
Overall, the ELAC Debut Reference DBR62 speakers provide a good sound quality with plenty of detail in the highs, lows, and mids. The full-range sound, powerful bass, and easy connectivity make these speakers a great choice for those looking for a balanced, full sound. The speakers may not be perfect for those looking for an overly loud or bass-heavy sound, but they are certainly worth considering.
Now let’s get to its bolts and nuts.
ELAC Debut Reference DBR62 Review: Sound quality
Let me tell you something right off the bat.
The sound quality performance you'll end up getting from a speaker will always depend on your room acoustics - particularly room dimensions and speaker positions.
The impact of the combination of these two is actually so strong that in most cases, it doesn't even make sense to utter a single word on sound quality without speaking of them.
This is also why it's not unusual to see completely different reviews of the same speaker.
In one case the speaker might be placed in a sweet spot inside the room and hence the user might be satisfied. In other cases the same speaker might be ill placed and hence user might even have returned it.

The point most people miss here is that it mostly isn't even about the engineering behind the speaker itself. It's about where you place the speaker inside which room.
So, in order to solve this problem, I've partnered with Acoustics and Audio Engineering PhD Andrea Cicero from AC Acustica and created Soundton - a simple, 2D, browser accessible online speaker placement calculator.
With Soundton, now there's a way to figure the sound quality of most speakers before you buy them.
