Episode® 900 Series In-Wall Home Theater Surround Speaker with dual 6-1/2 in. Woofers (Each)
  • The ES-HT950-IWSURR-6 In-wall Surround speaker is an in-wall tour de force that is purpose-built for serious home theater enthusiasts. The same premium components found in our other 900-series speakers have been selected to create this 3-way bi-pole / di-pole system. Dual 4.65 in. ribbons and 4 in. honeycomb midrange drivers create a wide rear soundstage, while our 6.5 in. NCS woofer delivers the low-end punch for the ultimate cinematic experience.
Bi-Pole / Di-Pole Configuration
  • This Swiss Army® knife of surround speakers may be configured for 5.1 or 7.1 systems, in either bi-pole or di-pole operation. Bi-pole mode is suited for larger rooms, while di-pole is perfect for tighter quarters or dedicated theaters where an enhanced sense of space is desired.
High-Performance Ribbon Tweeters
  • Just like the name implies, a "surround speaker" should envelope the listener in a large three-dimensional soundstage. That's why we've given this speaker TWO premium 4.65 in. ribbon tweeters. Each high-efficiency design features powerful neodymium magnets and a lightweight Kapton® ribbon for unsurpassed sensitivity, frequency response and linearity. What's more, the dispersion pattern has been specifically tuned for home theater applications – with a wide horizontal dispersion to put everyone in the sweet spot!
Honeycomb Midrange Driver
  • For optimum bi-pole/di-pole performance, our engineers designed a 3-way system, coupling the woofers and tweeters with two honeycomb midranges. Each 4 in. midrange is made from a lightweight, yet strong, honeycomb material that makes it the perfect choice for this application – with punchy mid-bass, plus the speed and transient response required to efficiently pair with the ribbon tweeter.
NCS (Natural Cell Structure) Woofer Material
  • We've combined the strength of Kevlar® with the natural damping qualities of paper in a unique woofer material. A multi-step drying process during manufacturing enables these drivers to retain a natural, open cell structure that results in well-damped, neutral acoustic characteristics. The result is tighter bass with lower distortion from this single 6-1/2 in. driver.
Compensation Switches
  • No two rooms are alike. Floor coverings, drapes, windows and furniture all impact how a speaker sounds in a room. You can easily fine tune the bass for boundary gain, adjust the midrange for vocal accuracy, or tweak the treble for a boost when mounting behind grill cloth.
Integrated Sealed Backbox
  • No two walls are exactly the same. They are different shapes and sizes, some have insulation, and they may be built from different materials. That's why our engineers designed a sealed enclosure made from rigid 3/4 in. MDF. Sure, this costs more than typical "infinite baffle" (or open-backed) designs, but the rewards present themselves in more predictable performance – meaning that both you and your customers will enjoy that same Episode® quality, time and time again.
An Installer’s Dream
  • You may have noticed, we’re serious about sound. But we also believe that high-performance doesn’t have to mean high-frustration. Great care was taken to ensure these speakers install just as easily as our traditional in-walls. No amenities were overlooked, like integrated dog-toggles, wire channels and bi-wiring / bi-amping support for premium performance and dynamic range in home theater applications. There's even a paintable, magnetic grill that quickly snaps into place to give the install that clean, professional look.
