Episode® 550 Series 3-Channel Passive Soundbar

Great sound never looked so stylish. The Episode® 550 Series 3-Channel Passive Soundbar is made with premium components and designed to fit alongside flat-plan TVs for a modern look! They’re actually three independent speakers in one – consisting of left, center, and right (LCR) channels, and are perfect for living room and bedroom applications. With multiple soundbar sizes available, they can be used with a wide range of TV sizes, from as small as 37” and up to 65” and larger.


Low-Profile Cabinet

Our engineers created an aluminum cabinet, which is thinner (only 2.83") and stronger than wood or plastic. The design also maximizes internal cabinet volume to ensure the best possible performance!


Modern Aesthetics

A brushed aluminum finish and black baffle make this soundbar a statement piece in any space. Plus, it’s modern look blends seamlessly with today’s most popular televisions.



Top Shelf Components

This soundbar features 1" titanium tweeters and 4" polypropylene injection woofer with Nomex Spider and high-temperature voice coil. For fuller, low-end performance, 4" passive radiators are coupled to the active woofer.


Flexible Mounting Options

Included with the soundbar is a bracket for easy wall mounting and a “kickstand” for TV stand or mantle placement. When mounting the soundbar to the wall, the bracket’s innovative angle adjustment features ensure the soundbar will fit just right.



Hidden IR

Many installations require the use of an IR repeating system, but where do you hide the IR receiver? We've placed a knock-out right behind the grille, so it stays neatly out of sight.



Integrated Wire Management

The IR cable and speaker connections are made through a single terminal cup, making it easy to run wires, while the removable enclosure makes it easy to hide them in tight quarters.


Three Channel Construction

With independent left, center and right channels you get all the benefits of a true front-stage, in a discreet form factor. Use the soundbar in combination with an AVR, surrounds and a subwoofer for an amazing theatre system, or pair it with our 3-channel mini amplifier and subwoofer for superior sound at the TV.
