epoque baforce controller

The flagship product Epoque Baforce Controller sets the ultimate benchmark for
active subwoofer crossovers / controllers.

The Epoque Baforce Controller is the choice for the ultimate sub-bass reproduction. In order to achieve a maximum sound quality, resultion and velocity without any looses, we designed our Epoque Baforce Controller completelly analog. Our supreme design goal was, not to hear the crossover / controller in the signal path.

Because of the completelly symetrical design, the Epoque Baforce Controller totally avoids interferences from the outset and reaches hereby an even higher sound quality.

These completely analog and symmetrical crossover / controller electronics are housed in a non-compromise enclosure which is milled out of a full block of a specific aluminum alloy. Hereby we get perfect control over EMI, heat dispersion, freedom from magnetic interfering fields and an ideal resonance behavior of the complete system.

Additionally the massively oversized discret power supply always ensures the absolute stable working conditions of our Epoque Baforce Controller, no matter at which level.

Reviewer Statements


I have not previously experienced such a coherent, completely seamless coverage of the entire frequency range!

Dirk Sommer “Hifistatement”

"The saxophone on a jazz recording was larger than life!"

Jim Clements "hometheaterhifi.com"

"The sound quality was staggering."

Martin Mertens "fairaudio"

"Digital sounded as resolved and easygoing as great analog, the highs remaining pure, the lows resolving to the very depths of the recording -- impressive stuff …"

Marc Mickelson "The Audio Beat"

"I know of no other speaker that plays music with such homogeneity."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"For the first time in show memory I just sat and listened for fun, to cut after cut."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"I was so impressed I went back on Sunday to confirm what I heard, and yes, these just might be the most realistic speakers on the planet!"

"Audiokarma"

The Göbel Epoque with its unique bending wave driver covering a frequency range from 180 Hz to 31.000 Hz sounded detailed and extraordinary coherent."

Peter Breuninger "AVshowrooms"

"Another specialty of the Epoque Fine is its thrilling, yet unspectacular fine dynamics."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"Yet it's a system which sounded remarkably open, natural and even dynamic with a string quartet piece."

"I returned to this setup over and over again surprised each time by the overall ease and coherency of the Göbel Epoque."

Clement Perry "StereoTimes"

"Simply unbelievable that so much resolution can be accompanied by such strong tonality and such a rich foundation!"

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"The German made Göbel Epoque Reference Bending Wave loudspeaker proved to be a show stopper."

Clement Perry "StereoTimes"

"The sound image was incredibly fast, with high resolution and to a certain extent simply effortless so that the awesome amount of technology immediately just faded into the background and let the music take over."

Martin Mertens "fairaudio"

"With the Lacorde Statement, you do not have to choose between a huge imaginary space or melodic, refined, yet rich bass response. Here, you absolutely get both!"

Throughout Analog Controller

Our ultimate Epoque Baforce Controller is a highest end active crossover / controller, which is specifically designed completelly analog with the best possible parts available. Only through our completelly analog design you will get the best possible sound quality, resolution and velocity as we hereby have no looses or latancies based on A/D conversion, DSP processing, and D/A conversion.

Completely Symmetrical

Additionally our crossover / controller is designed completely symmetrically, in order to get even more freedom from interferences and therefore an even higher sound quality. Our supreme design goal was, not to hear the crossover / controller in the signal path and we are sure that we reached it!

Massively Oversized Power Supply

The massively oversized high end power supply can shortly deliver few times higher peak current as will need at maximum level. Additionally In order to even lower the interferences, we designed the enclosure so the power supply has it’s own shielded chamber and doesn’t effect the analog section. Hereby the noise floor is again shifted to the lowest potential possible and even the smallest dynamic impulses will be reproduced with unbelivable velocity and precision.
