Episode has been making some high quality speakers with really premium parts but none of the hefty price tags that we find on other similar speakers. The ES-300-SNDBAR-40 you see here is essentially a three speaker in one box soundbar. At just 40″ wide, 4.5″ tall and 3″ deep, the soundbar is packed with four 3″ polypropylene injection cone woofers, four 3″ passive radiators and three 3/4″ silk dome tweeters. Frequency response is 105 Hz to 22 KHz with a nominal impedance of 8 ohm and a sensitivity of 88dB. Bass is not the deepest but many soundbars out there aren’t too, especially slim packaged ones like the one you see here. Slim soundbars are designed to offer a compromise in big bass over aesthetic looks. Put this under a 50″ (or smaller) TV and it will add a bigger sound presence over your TV speakers. If you want more bass, you can always add a subwoofer. But as is, its an awesome speaker for dialogue and your usual movie soundtrack.
Cosmetically, the speaker looks good. There are some minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
