The K-Series sees the start of a new era in Epos’s history. The first speaker range to be designed by Luke Creek sees the introduction of
slot-port technology, the reintroduction of simplistic crossover design and a very clever removable rear panel allowing digital upgrades.
The K1 is the starting point in this new range. This small stand-mount speaker delivers a rich deep and involving soundstage with bass quality
that will have you hunting for a hidden subwoofer. Designed to be used with an eclectic spectrum of music, the K1 is soon to be the benchmark
that all others will be judge by.
The K series features an unusual front firing slot port, rear mounted drivers and painted cabinet finishes. The K-Series is not only sleek
and stylish, it also has a clever trick hidden up its sleeve.
Out of the box the K-Series is a stylish and sonically impressive passive loudspeaker, built to a very high standard. Now for the trick;
designed into the K-Series is a latent upgrade path that allows it to be converted from a passive to a sophisticated ‘active digital’ product,
using an optional Active-K module. Active-K allows the K1 to be at the heart of a 21st century ‘Hi-Resolution’ audio system.
The K-Series is much more than just another box loudspeaker, it paves the way to the future of Hi-Fi!
Using virtual performance CAD simulation tools, Epos has achieved very high performance, and a clean, open yet smooth sound quality from this tweeter.
The tweeter has a low resonance frequency, high sensitivity and extended high frequency response. With a 25mm fabric-dome, short horn, high-temperature ferro-fluid cooled voice-coil, and neodymium magnet, it is capable of high output levels for extended periods without degradation to sound quality.
The Epos K1 mid-bass drivers produces an even frequency response and smooth roll-off.
The Epos 150mm mid-bass driver has a high-quality polypropylene cone and a bullet-shaped dust cap. These components form a stiff, yet pliable, well-damped structure which retains its shape even under high power loading.
The K1 mid-bass drivers also benefits from a bucking-magnet system, ensuring all the magnetic force is concentrated around the voice-coil, allowing for low distortion and high efficiency.
In true Epos tradition; the K-series has reverted to a more simplistic passive crossover topology, for which the brand is synonymous.
A first order crossover is used to allow the Epos tweeter to have a wide dynamic range with super low distortion. The mid-bass crossover uses a 2nd order filter ensuring the K1 is an easy load for any amplifier.
