Epos Announces Encore 50 Loudspeakers  Print E-mail

Three years after beginning the design process on the Encore 50, it’s finally ready to debut.  The flagship speaker from Epos will debut at CES just under a week away. The cabinet for these floor-standing speakers measure s just about four feet high.  It’s deeper than it is wide, 15 inches from front to back and just over ten inches wide. 


The cabinet is made of a birch-plywood MDF mix using plywood bracing within the inside to support the full 110 pound weight of the Encore 50.  Separate bass, treble and mid-range sections are hermetically sealed within the cabinet, allowing the crossover itself to be located at the base of the cabinet.  Each driver is wired individually to the crossover unit.
 
A pair of 220mm woofers handles the bass, allowing a frequency range as low as 28Hz.  The two woofers are bass reflex loaded by a 90mm port that’s positioned midway between them.  According to Epos, the height of the woofers was chosen to help eliminate floor bounce cancellation and to ensure a smooth transition between the woofers and the 158mm mid range driver.

The tweeter in the Encore 50 is a special version of the Epos Mi tweeter design.  It’s got an anodized aluminum dome, a Kapton voice coil former and Ferro-Fluid damping.  A price for the Encore 50 loudspeakers from Epos has not yet been announced, but further details will be revealed in early January.
