Episode® 500 Series Thin Design 3-Channel Passive Soundbar for TV's 55 in. or larger (Black | Each)
  • For a soundbar that looks great with ultra-thin flat panels and provides top-notch audio performance, look no further than the ES-500T-SNDBR-50-BLK. Ideal for TVs 55-in. and larger, its cabinet measures just 1.83-in. thin, making it our thinnest soundbar yet! We trimmed the body fat while maintaining pure muscle performance with 1-in. titanium tweeters, beefy 4-in. aluminum woofers, and 4-in. passive radiators that pack some serious audio punch. This installer-friendly soundbar comes equipped with a kickstand for mounting on a cabinet or shelf, removable screw-in connectors for easy wiring, and a slim, quick-install wall bracket. 
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’s 1-in. thinner than our previous design. It provides strength and rigidity, while also maximizing internal air volume, resulting is an elegant speaker that sounds just as good as it looks!
Top-Shelf Components
  • This soundbar provides the oomph and easy listening customers want, in a slim form factor that looks great with thin TVs. Equipped with 1-in. titanium tweeters, 4-in. aluminum passive radiators, and 4-in. aluminum woofers, it delivers a robust and high-quality sound that enhances TV, movies and music. Titanium is lighter and stiffer than standard silk dome, so it’s quicker to respond and provides crisp, clean highs, while advanced 4-inch aluminum woofers create a higher SPL (sound pressure level).
Fast Installation
  • Soundbar installations shouldn’t require three arms or two people. That’s why this product features removable screw-in connectors for easy wiring, plus mounting posts that are integrated right into the slim 0.09-in. wall bracket. Just screw the bracket into the wall, connect your wiring, and slide the soundbar onto the mounting posts – no extra arm required!
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! Plus, the IR receiver pass-through and 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.
  • NOTE: If wall mounting the soundbar and using an IR tube, check the IR receiver’s depth to ensure it doesn’t extend past the back of the soundbar.
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.
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 center channel design ensures that dialog comes through loud and clear – without having to turn the TV up to “11.” 
Flexible Mounting Options
  • Included with the soundbar is a wall bracket for mounting above/below the TV and a kickstand for placement on a shelf/cabinet. At just 0.09-in. thick, the new wall-mount bracket is a perfect fit for this super slim soundbar, allowing the fully mounted product to be only 1.92-in deep!
