Episode® 900 Series Home Theater In-Wall Speaker with dual 7 in. Woofers
  • The ES-HT950-IW-7 in-wall speaker represents our best thinking on the subject of speaker design. The absolute best components have been combined with a 3-way system design to deliver best-in-class performance. A 4.65" ribbon provides amazing clarity and detail while our larger 7" NCS woofers deliver an over-the-top experience that come only come from Episode®.
NCS (Natural Cell Structure), Mass-Loaded Woofer
  • It there’s one thing every home theater enthusiast loves, it’s horsepower. The ES-HT950-IW-7 features our largest and most power NCS woofer yet, at 7" in diameter it has a 1.25" voicecoil and 18° larger magnet for unsurpassed output and performance. For the woofer cone, we combined Kevlar® with the natural damping qualities of paper in a unique material. Then a multi-step drying process during manufacturing enables the woofer to retain a natural, open cell structure that results in well-damped, neutral acoustic characteristics. And with TWO of these 7" woofers in every cabinet there’s even more to love – with as much surface area and output as many 10" subwoofers!
High-Performance Ribbon Tweeter
  • A premium speaker with resounding lows means nothing without equally impressive highs. That’s why our engineers paired the NCS woofers with a premium 4.65" ribbon tweeter. This high-efficiency tweeter 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, while limiting the vertical dispersion to improve imaging by reducing undesirable ceiling and floor reflections.
Honeycomb Midrange Driver
  • To accurately blend the acoustics of the woofers and tweeter, our engineers used a 3-way system design. The 5-1/4” midrange is made from a lightweight, but 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.
Compensation Switches
  • No two rooms are alike. Floor coverings, drapes, windows and furniture all impact how a speaker sounds in a room. On the ES-HT950-IW-7, you can quickly adjust for bass boost on the woofers, or leave flat for Boundary Compensation and adjust the midrange and tweeter levels +/-2dB independently. In addition, the tweeter position gives an extra screen EQ boost of 3dB over 8 kHz for mounting behind perforated screens.
Integrated Sealed Backbox
  • No two walls are quite 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" 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.
