The Elan 15 is the larger of the two bookshelf speakers in the Elan range. It is shown here with optional ST12i stands (sold separately). The Elan 15 is suitable for use with a amplifiers from as small as 20 watts to as large as 120 watts into 4 Ohms. Its design holds true to the purist principles followed by Epos. We believe this design philosophy delivers the very best sound quality and musical performance for the money. Only the finest real-wood veneers are selected, book-matched and hand-laid. To minimize unwanted vibration and coloration, extensive horizontal and vertical internal bracing are positioned inside the sturdy 18mm thick MDF cabinets. Elan 15 is supplied with two baffles. The standard audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws is fitted. If required, this can easily be swapped for the alternative cloth covered version. Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter for the Elan range. By using virtual-performance CAD simulation tools, this new tweeter has been designed to achieve the accuracy and speed of a metal dome but with smoothness associated with a soft dome. The new 7" mid/bass driver, built on to an open-frame cast-aluminum alloy chassis, with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, minimize colorations and distortions while allowing greater sound pressure levels than earlier Epos drivers. In typical Epos fashion, the Elan 15 crossover is as simple as we can make it: both the woofer and tweeter networks are 2nd order filters, all the resistors are metal oxide, all the capacitors are high-quality polypropylene-foil dielectric types and internal wiring uses proprietary solid-core wire covered in a sponge sheath to prevent vibration. In conclusion, the new Elan 15's are eager to please and combine stylish elegance with good taste and gracefulness.
