Epos Loudspeakers are part of FinkTeam which in turn is an adjunct to Europe’s premier loudspeaker design consultancy, Fink Audio Consulting.


In 2020 Creek sold the Epos Loudspeaker brand to Karl-Heinz Fink, founder of German speaker designer firm FinkTeam and also head of acoustic design consultancy Fink Audio Consulting. Karl-Heinz had always been interested in the Epos design philosophy and knew he could update that philosophy with more modern design and engineering techniques.

In an interview with Robin Marshall made in the 80’s Robin said clearly that he designed the speakers based on the ideas and know-how he had at that time – not more and not less. That sounded like the Fink Audio way……trying to stretch boundaries and not copying the past.

Analyzing the old construction was interesting. It used a 7“ woofer with Polypropylene cone and an underhang coil with a huge magnet, but multiple layers of VC winding to make the whole coil heavy in order to get a sort of roll-off in the response curve of the woofer. The size of the woofer was not following any standard – too big for a 6.5“, but too small for an 8“. But it was a clever choice, because you could get more drive at lower frequencies more like an 8“ and a midband character closer to the 6.5“.
