Snap One is expanding its family of Episode Home Theater speakers designed to deliver cinematic sound through high-performance components and support for the latest object-based surround sound technologies.
Included in the new family of Snap One’s Episode Home Theater speakers are two performance levels: Episode Home Theater and Episode Home Theater Reference.
According to the Charlotte, N.C.-based company, the six models in the Home Theater series leverage a common set of materials and components to bring consistent performance when mixed and matched even with products from different Episode product lines.
The Episode Home Theater lineup includes:
- 6-inch tower speaker
- 6-inch in-room monitor speaker
- 6-inch in-room LCR speaker
- 4-inch in-room/on-wall height speaker
- 4-inch on-wall LCR speaker
The Home Theater series features rigid MDF cabinets designed to limit vibration, carbon fiber woofers, low distortion one-inch aluminum dome tweeters, second order Linkwitz-Riley filters and acoustically transparent local magnetic glass. All in-room models are available in three different color options, including gloss black, gloss white and walnut veneer.
Meanwhile the Home Theater Reference series speakers are designed for high performance, with Snap One positioning the speakers as the “pinnacle” of the Episode speaker portfolio.
The Home Theater Reference series features an exclusive Coherent Source Module, upgraded crossovers, and an adaptable lineup of architectural in-wall and in-ceiling options.
The Episode Home Theater Reference speakers include:
- 6-inch in-room tower speaker
- 6-inch in-room LCR speaker
- 4-inch in-ceiling LCR speaker
- 6-inch in-wall surround speaker
- 6-inch medium in-wall LCR speaker
- 6-inch large in-wall LCR speaker
In addition, each model features a Coherent Source Module that directs frequencies to specific speakers in two- and three-way designs, as well as the new Reference Tower 4-way design.
The series also features a solid MDF cabinet, 1-inch aluminum dome tweeters, an aluminum dome midrange or wide band transducers, carbon fiber woofers and second order Linkwitz-Riley filters with Zobel impedance matching.
The Episode Home Theater Family offers full support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro3D immersive surround sound sources, the company adds.
Alex Zaliauskas, director of product management for speakers at Snap One, says these speakers are the best Episode products the company has developed.
“Our Partner integrators have long trusted Episode to provide high-performance speakers at an incredible value, and Episode Home Theater takes that goal to new heights,” Zaliauskas says. “We’ve dedicated countless hours to meticulously curating the finest drivers and components for this line of speakers, setting a new standard of sound reproduction and raising the bar for the Episode brand.”
