Episode® 500 Series 3-Channel Passive Soundbar for TV's from 46 to 52 in. (Black | Each)
  • When performance is a priority, this soundbar has you covered. Its slim design pairs perfectly with 46-in. to 52-in flat panel TVs, offering exceptional sound that doesn’t clutter the wall with a bunch of speakers. Featuring a thin aluminum cabinet with 4-in. drivers and 1-in. titanium tweeters, it delivers a robust, high-quality sound customers are sure to love. We even included a low-profile mounting bracket and kickstand for easy installs on a wall or cabinet.
Bigger Drivers. More Oomph.
  • How does this product manage to provide such stellar sound? Simple: it’s powered by bigger, better, more advanced 4-inch polypropylene injection cone woofers that provide the lower frequency response needed to get a deep, full sound and better bottom end. This soundbar provides all the oomph customers want – in a slim form factor that doesn’t overpower their TV.
Titanium Tweeters
  • Movies, TV shows and music sound crystal clear, thanks to speakers that are outfitted with 1-in. titanium tweeters, instead of the standard silk dome. Titanium is stiffer, which means it’s quicker to respond, providing a crisp, clean sound. Talk about easy listening!
Dialog That’s Dialed In
  • If your customers complain about their TV’s dialog being difficult to hear, this soundbar takes care of the problem. Its carefully engineered design ensures that dialog comes through loud and clear – without having to turn the TV up to volume 60.
Who Says Three's a Crowd?
  • Sure, squeezing this many speakers into one cabinet is quite the design challenge – but, man, is it worth it! With independent left, center and right channels you get all the benefits of a true front-stage, yet in a discreet soundbar form factor. Just connect an A/V receiver, surrounds and subwoofer for an amazing theater system.
Low-Profile, Extruded Aluminum Cabinet
  • For the best speaker performance in a flat panel TV application, you need to balance aesthetics and acoustical performance. The design challenge here is how to put a high-performance speaker (or in this case, three) into such a thin box. To do this, our engineers started with a thin extruded aluminum cabinet that provides strength and rigidity, while maximizing internal air volume. The result is an elegant speaker that sounds just as good as it looks!
Hidden IR
  • Many installations require the use of an IR repeating system; the problem is where do you hide the IR receiver? Check out this innovative approach - we've placed a knock-out right behind the grill to let you neatly hide it out of sight. Say goodbye to unsightly stuck-on IR receivers!
Integrated Wire Management
  • The IR cable and all speaker connections are made through a single terminal cup, making it easy to run wires (and hide them) in tight quarters behind a flat panel TV. Yep, we thought of that too. 
Flexible Mounting Options
  • Included with the soundbar are a wall bracket for mounting below the TV and a "kickstand" for placement on a shelf. If you're using one of our Strong™ articulating TV mounts, there is also an optional soundbar bracket that allows the speaker to move with the TV.
