Episode® Triple Series Passive Radiator Subwoofer
These powerful Episode® Triple Series Passive Radiator Subwoofers combine stunning good looks with sophisticated DSP technology, BASH amplification and three woven fiberglass woofers to deliver one amazing performance. They’re designed to excel in dedicated home theaters and audio systems that require high output from a small cabinet. It features an impressive 1200W of peak power for the 10" and 720W for the 8".
Every component and system is precision engineered and tuned to deliver an incredible experience. So too with this Triple 8" and 10" subwoofer - the woofer system, passive radiators, amplifier, power supply and even the cabinet - all come together in concert for an amazing performance.
BASH® Amplifier Technology
At the heart of this unit is a highly efficient BASH® amplifier. This hybrid technology produces up to 1200W (Peak) of clean, tight bass for the 10" (720W for the 8") and is up to 60% more efficient than conventional designs. In standby mode, the subwoofer consumes less than 0.5 watts, making it one of the “greenest” solutions available.
Digital Signal Processing
The BASH amplifier employs a DSP engine that precisely controls the amplifier’s output and frequency response to maximize output while limiting distortion. Compared to analog designs with limited capabilities, the software-based DSP provided our engineers with virtually unlimited filtering. This gave them the ability to fine tune the system for razor flat response across the entire frequency range.
Woven Fiberglass Driver
Behind the performance is a custom driver that is made of top-shelf components like a woven fiberglass sandwich cone, Nomex spider, double stacked/vented motor and an oversized 2" high-temperature voice coil. Each passive driver is made from the same top-shelf woven fiberglass material and is finely tuned to match the system.
Gloss Black Cabinet
To withstand the high pressure levels of this powerful acoustic system, the cabinet is constructed from 1” thick MDF to create a strong enclosure. Sculpted curves and rounded corners provide an elegant form factor, while a multi-layer painting process and hand-polishing bring it all to an elegant finish.
Balanced XLR Input & Output
For high-end theater applications, the Triple 8" and Triple 10" use a balanced XLR connection for clean, resilient bass performance. Plus there's also an XLR output for daisy-chaining to a second subwoofer.
High/Low Level Inputs & Outputs
If a balanced connection isn't possible, no problem. For more traditional installations, there are gold-plated RCA connections including an LFE input. If your receiver only has speaker outputs, connect it to the high-level inputs then use the high-level outputs to hook up the speakers.
Volume, Crossover & Phase Controls
For an unbelievable music and movie experience, the subwoofer needs to be configured to match the speakers and room. Rear-mounted rotary volume, crossover and phase adjustments enable you to finely tune the subwoofer with the rest of the system.
Signal Sensing/12V Trigger
This Episode® subwoofer features power-saving modes that reduce power consumption when it's not in use. “Audio Sense” mode automatically turns off the subwoofer after 15 minutes. “Trigger” mode relies on a 12V signal sent from either a remote system or another component to tell the subwoofer when to turn on and off.
