A Subwoofer in Every Room

Subwoofers bring rich sound to a distributed audio system and provide a more satisfying listening experience than systems without subs. Our lineup of in-wall subwoofers lets you bring the bass without the hassle of finding somewhere to hide it. Our single, dual, and free air subwoofers are easily installed in a wall cavity or a preconstruction or retrofit enclosure, making it easier than ever to add a sub to every room. Complete your install with our full suite of Episode accessories.



Unparalleled Performance

A low profile 8" driver with more than a 1/2" of excursion brings high-quality sound and booming lows to every install.



The core of the versatile Episode Signature Subwoofer system is this Free Air Subwoofer driver, which can be installed in a variety of ways to best suit the job, including directly in the wall, into a back box, or in combination with another sub to create a dual sub setup. Add a sub to every room by leveraging an open-air cavity or installing in one of our pre-construction or retrofitenclosures for a hassle-free way to immediately increase your customer’s overall satisfaction with their audio system.




This sub can be hidden in a standard 2 x 4" stud bay and can accommodate sheetrock thicknesses from single 1/2" to dual 5/4" for a flush install that won’t take up valuable space.



Easy Install

Spring-loaded tension dogs make it easy to place this subwoofer in the wall, back box, or enclosure. If using the retrofit enclosure, be sure to align the dog ear screw with the area marked on the front of the enclosure.



Hassle-Free Wiring

Spring-loaded push terminals allow you to attach speaker wire directly from an amplifier or optional back box.



Ribbed Surround

A polypropylene woofer with ribbed surround creates linear cone movement for tighter, cleaner bass and reduced distortion.



Discreet In-Wall Accommodation

This subwoofer is compatible with our wide variety of grille options including round, square, rectangular (for dual sub install), bezel, bezel-less, and black. A standard thin bezel white grille is included with your purchase, giving you a modern finish that fits in seamlessly with Episode speakers.

EQ settings are built into the subwoofer amplifier to optimize performance for any application and set-up.
