Computer simulations were used in the development of the chassis for the epic ELAN 15. The test shows whether that positively affects the sound of the compact box.

The creations by Michael Creek many myths have grown up – just think of his legendary amplifier. A new chapter was added to the epic of the English star developer when Creek at the end of the last millennium epic bought the 1983 by Robin Marshall founded speaker brand. Since then he congratulate a dedicated following with sound independent and very sparkling boxes.

The ELAN 15 is the larger of the two compact boxes in their series. However, there are no special home theater enhancements in purist Britain. Also complex crossovers are taboo in Britain: simple and straight the motto in terms of construction, which is apparently essential importance for epic. The transition frequency of the second-order filter, implemented with metal oxide resistors and high-quality Polypropylene capacitors, non-critical phase is 3.2 kilohertz and demands a lot from the mid-woofer. For this she separates the two chassis of two-way bass reflex box not in the critical area of the human voice, where it could be especially disruptive.

EPIC ELAN 15: construction

So the mid-woofer even under high stress remains stiff as Sherlock Holmes in a British Club, put him on its developers a dust cap in the form of a bullet. Through these dimensionally stable, optimal solution damped including the roll behavior of Polypropylene cone on the border of the work area should be optimized. The 18.7 cm chassis was built as a new development with the help of CAD-computer simulation.

Finally, also sound gurus in good old England with the blessings of the modern age are prepared. So that the tweeter with this bullet by a chassis can keep up, they gave him a short Horn extension to improve the degree of efficiency. Make the connected amplifier right can steam it, Ferro fluid cooling the coil of his excessive heat 2.5 cm plastic dome to help.

The ELAN 15 consist of 18 mm thick MDF walls of the enclosure. Because this strength bodes not just safe-like rigidity, trust the developers on internal stiffeners. The wood is of good quality, the baffle is located at once with and once without covering. It can be fix by clips on the behind front panel. Therefore, if you look out curved without stringing on a smooth, laterally and to the drivers. The chassis are fitted perfectly organic and have no open screws that could break the sound or interfere with the eye of the beholder with its edges.

EPIC ELAN 15: hearing test

Sound, nothing disturbed the appearance of the epic. The small Englishwoman has performed with due homogeneity. She gave the original timbres voices and natural instruments. The extremely crunchy for this class, rich and contoured bass gave her but special respect. In the listening test protocols, he earned the predicate “sow fast”. However, this strength only with appropriate music came to the bear about with electro beats or drum solos.

When it simultaneously went with rock music, pop or jazz recordings in all areas to the thing, then the Middle had a slightly distant, while the heights sometimes of galoppierten – because you were still somewhat “faster” than the bass. Overall these small idiosyncrasies the near a wall, parallel structure typical of epic settled reduce and also the figure worked under these conditions extremely stable and plastic. And terms of musicality and joy of playing, makes the ELAN name already all honor.
