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
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
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
This is a truly eye and ear-opening loudspeaker that will keep you
enthralled listening to your favorite tracks for many years to come.
