Epos Elan 15 Speakers

More Power, More Dynamics, an Incredible Value

The larger sibling of the impressive Elan 10, the Epos Elan 15 is a surprisingly powerful and sophisticated bookshelf speaker. It has a larger cabinet and woofer cone than Elan 10 and, as a result, offers notable advantages in sensitivity, bass output and power handling. The Elan 15 is designed to the Epos's purist principles of simple crossover, well-behaved drive units and clean understated aesthetics.

Epos has applied the finest wood veneers for a high-quality finish. To minimize unwanted vibration and coloration, extensive horizontal and vertical internal bracing has been added to the sturdy 18mm MDF cabinets. Elan 15 can be stand mounted for optimum performance. Elan 15 is supplied with an audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws, grille-fixing holes or cloth. The baffle is machined around the woofer to create a gently contoured horn shape and, unlike a conventional grille frame, there are no obstructions or sharp edges to cause reflections and sound colorations.

Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter for the Elan 15. By using virtual-performance CAD simulation tools, Epos has achieved very high performance with a sound that combines clarity and smoothness in equal measure. The new tweeter has a low resonance frequency, high sensitivity and extended high frequency response. With its 1" doped-fabric dome, short horn, high-temperature Ferro-fluid cooled voice-coil, and shielded neodymium magnet, it is capable of high output levels for extended periods.

Epos has also developed a brand new 187mm bass/mid driver for the Elan 15. This is built on to an open-frame cast aluminum alloy chassis with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, to minimize colorations and distortions. This bass/mid unit features a high-quality polypropylene cone and 'bullet'-shaped dust cap. These form a stiff yet pliable, well-damped structure which retains its shape, even under high power. The woofer produces a sound with intense dynamics, an even frequency response, and smooth roll off. Loaded by a good-sized port and flared at both ends to reduce turbulence, this woofer produces more bass than expected from such a compact cabinet, coupled with a clear and powerful mid-range. This mini speaker is more sensitive than you’d expect, making it suitable for use with a wide range of amplifiers, from as small as 20 watts to as large as 120 watts.

In typical Epos fashion, the crossover is as simple as can be: both the woofer and tweeter networks are second-order filters at 3.2 kHz. To ensure the highest sound quality, all the resistors are metal oxide and the capacitors are high-quality polypropylene-foil dielectric, for their superior sound quality. Inductors are designed for low distortion even at high powers: air-core for the tweeter and an over-sized laminated-iron cored coil for the woofer. The input terminals are bi-wirable.

It comes as no surprise that the elegant Elan 15 will have you in awe from the first note. In addition to the astonishing bass power for its size, soundstage, depth and detail are truly exceptional, with a clarity that outshines the competition and many higher priced speakers. This is a truly eye and ear-opening loudspeaker that will keep you enthralled listening to your favorite tracks for many years to come.
