Episode® 500 Series In-Ceiling Thin Bezel Speakers with 8 in. Woofers (Pair)
  • Beauty, brawn... this 8" thin bezel speaker has it all! The ES-500T-IC-8 blends contemporary aesthetics with incredible performance to create a system that appeals to both audiophiles and designers alike.
A Designer’s Dream
  • Builders and designers will love how the ES-500T's thin bezel look matches the rest of the dcor, such as contemporary low-voltage and "high-hat" lighting. Combined with a bezel that’s up to 1” smaller in diameter than the competition, these speakers virtually disappear into the ceiling. Installation is clean and effortless thanks to a magnetic grill that quickly snaps into place using strong neodymium magnets.
Precision Engineering
  • In order to rise above the field of mass-produced "put your label here" products, you need competent engineering and quality components. In this 500-series model, our speaker designers have combined the low frequency responsiveness of a 6.5" injection-molded polypropylene woofer with a 1" ferro-fluid cooled, fabric dome tweeter. Bringing it all together is a custom 2nd-order crossover network that ensures a precise performance each and every time.
Tweeter Compensation Switch
  • In custom audio installations, no two rooms are alike. Floor coverings, drapes, windows and furniture all impact how a speaker sounds in a room. With the ES-500T, you can quickly and independently adjust each tweeter's output by 3db to compensate for rooms with more or less sound absorbing materials.
Pivoting Tweeter
  • Lots of tweeters can be aimed. But ours can be aimed when you're on the top of a ladder. . . with your client talking to you. . . your phone ringing. . . and nothing to hold onto other than the tweeter bridge (Yes, we know you do that, so it doubles as a handle).
Installation Ease
  • With competitive products, slight variations in sheetrock can sometimes leave a gap between the grill and the ceiling. Our unique bezel design and oversized dog toggles close the gap, keeping the speaker firmly planted to the ceiling.Thanks to these "puppies", unwanted resonances are reduced plus you can be sure it's not going anywhere! Gold plated spring terminals mean that even if you're on a ladder… talking to your customer... you can still connect the wires effortlessly.
