snapav episode impression series

SnapAV today introduced the Episode Impression Series satellite speaker and bandpass subwoofer. The Impression series offers 4” satellite speakers and a 6.5” bandpass subwoofer with a low distortion, wide dispersion and flat-frequency response.

Available in 2.1, 4.1, custom-sized kits, and individual SKUs, the Impression Series offers numerous configurations. The 4.1 kit comprises four Impression satellite speakers and one Impression bandpass subwoofer. Episode’s standard configurations range from a single pair of satellite speakers or a single subwoofer up to a 4.2 system with four satellite speakers and two subwoofers.

The Impression satellite speaker (model ES-IM4IC) is a 4” in-ceiling speaker that provides audio through a carbon/aramid fiber cone and ribbed rubber surround and is designed for simple installation in both new construction and retrofit projects. The ribbed surrounds use an inverted parabolic design to provide greater cone excursion without rippling, so the speaker can be played louder without distortion.

Using a standard 4” hole and accompanying round or square 5” bezel-less grille blend in with modern 5” standard lighting cans. Episode also offers an in-ceiling bracket (model ES-IM4-BRKT-IC) for the satellite speakers and each speaker features a high-pass switch for easy setup, and dealers can choose from black or white grilles. Both round and square are provided with each speaker to ensure end-customer satisfaction.

The Impression Bandpass subwoofer (model ES-IM6-BP-SUB) is a 6.5” in-ceiling subwoofer that features a dual voice coil, fabric-coated paper cone with a rubber surround, along with a bandpass box that provides greater efficiency and deeper bass extension. This new-construction-only product requires mounting before drywall or access from above. The subwoofer uses a flexible tube to connect to a 5” ceiling grille so it appears identical to the other speakers throughout a room. The full speaker cabinet mounts behind ceiling drywall, so the 5” grille is the only piece visible. The in-ceiling bracket and pre-construction backbox are sold separately.
