Episode® 700 Series In-Wall Speaker with 2 x 5 1/4 in. Woofers
Designed to meet the demands of critical listeners, the ES-700 is equally capable as a music or home theater speaker. Even at low volume levels, you’ll appreciate the clarity and detail that these speakers produce…and when you turn them up, you’ll enjoy a wide, natural soundstage and exceptionally dynamic sound.
NCS (Natural Cell Structure) Woofer Material
We’ve combined the strength of Kevlar™ with the natural damping qualities of paper in a unique woofer material. A multi-step drying process during manufacturing enables these drivers to retain a natural, open cell structure that results in well-damped, neutral acoustic characteristics.This speaker features an 5-1/4 in. version of this driver, further enhancing low-frequency performance.
Catenary Dome Tweeter
Most dome tweeters are spherical…so why isn’t the tweeter in the ES-700? The oblong (catenary curve) shape of this tweeter produces more off-axis acoustic energy. The translation: a wider, more engaging soundstage with an open, forward sound.
Perfect for in-wall surround sound LCR installations. Also great for side and rear surround speakers. Can be mounted vertically for left and right channels and horizontally for center channel. Fits horizontally between standard 16″ off center studs.
Room Compensation Switches (Tweeter and Woofer)
In multi-room audio installations, no two rooms are alike. Floor coverings, drapes, windows and furniture all impact how a speaker sounds in a room. With the ES-700, you can quickly adjust the tweeter’s output by 3db to compensate for rooms with more or less sound absorbing materials. The same adjustment can be made to the woofer to compensate for installations near walls and corners that might otherwise cause a speaker to sound “boomy”.
Build Quality = Sound Quality
We don’t over-engineer the construction of Episode speakers just so that they survive bouncing around in your van (although that’s important). Our build quality also eliminates one of the most common problems in architectural speaker designs—secondary speaker resonance that “colors” the sound and reduces fidelity. All you’ll hear is accurate, detailed sound without the distortion.
Quick snug dogs, gold-plated push button wire terminations, rust-proof aluminum grill and cutout template all make this the standard for installation ease.

The frequency response curve shows the Sound Pressure Level (SPL) at a 1 meter (3.28 feet) distance from the speaker at all frequencies (Freq) in the audible range 20 HZ – 20,000 Hz (20K). It is an indication of how evenly the speaker reproduces the sound from the lowest bass to the highest treble.
