Easy Install

Signature by Episode features exclusive Push Lock by Swarm technology, a toolless mounting solution specifically designed for Signature. For both in-ceiling and in-wall speakers, Push Lock secures the speaker with the simple press of a button for the fastest and most secure install on the market. Plus, the dogs can be cinched down an extra 6mm when you need additional security in situations with uneven sheetrock, popcorn ceilings, etc.

Your Speaker, Your Choice

Every Signature by Episode speaker (yes, both in-ceiling and in-wall) can be installed via a one-step or two-step process. Install the speaker in one step with zero tools and one trip up the ladder or remove the center core of the speaker and install the cradle with optional backbox and grille, so you don’t risk speaker damage while the build completes.

Unmatched Performance

Crafted in house with a sleek finish and elite components designed to achieve the sound principles of the NRC, Signature by Episode delivers lifelike tones that are pleasing to the ear and won’t fatigue the listener over time. With premium woofer and tweeter material, these bad boys deliver deep bass and unmatched tonal clarity for lifelike sound at any listening level. Signature’s superior audio quality is accomplished by adhering to our three philosophies on sound: low distortion, wide dispersion, and flat frequency response.

Angled view of backbox

Direct-Mount Backbox

The one-step install features a jumperless design for a single-wire connection to the rear of the backbox (sold separately) for a once-up-the-ladder toolless install. The two-step install lets you prewire and install the backbox to the cradle, keeping blown insulation from falling through the ceiling and maintaining pressure during home efficiency tests. Plus, when you return to finish the job, the speaker installs into the cradle & backbox with no wires needed AND no tools. Every Signature by Episode speaker comes with a cradle and has a compatible cradle that can be purchased separately.

Dual tweeters with surround switch on right

Innovative Tweeter Pods

Signature tweeter pods are vented in the back to drop the resonance frequency of the tweeter, allowing the system to be crossed over for greater dispersion and less distortion. The lower the crossover, the less work the woofer has to do to play higher in the frequency band, providing greater spatiality when listening to music.

Dual-Tweeter Configuration

Stereo signals are reproduced with good separation thanks to the orientation of the dual tweeters. Plus, they can also be configured as dipole or bipole so that the sound emanates from the sides of the speakers.

Surround Mode Switch

Set the speaker to bipole or dipole to get the perfect sound for your application and preference.

Easy Protection

The speaker’s protective cover serves as a handle when carrying up a ladder, as a shield during transportation and install, and as a guard during paint. They are included with all in-ceiling speakers and cradles to provide protection and convenience.

Drywall with bracket inserted and speaker being installed

Flush-Mount Design

Our affordable flush-mount brackets (sold separately) offer a unique design to turn any Signature by Episode and Episode speaker into a flush-mounted solution, providing a seamless transition from grille to wall without cracking the drywall or requiring a new speaker. You won’t mind passing this simple solution to the drywaller to help get the job done!

Speaker with white grille attached

Stronger Grille Magnets

The magnet structure on the speaker frame has nearly 2X the holding capacity of other architectural speakers, preventing grilles from vibrating at loud volumes and bowing over time.

Ribbed Surround

Inverted surrounds feature a parabolic design to provide greater cone excursion in a linear form without rippling of the surround, allowing the speaker to be played louder without distortion.

Red, green and yellow round brackets

Simple, Versatile Brackets

Our Signature by Episode speakers are compatible with our ES-ESS brackets and several thin-bezel, paintable grilles for a smooth, minimalistic finish. And as an added plus, our Signature by Episode speakers share the same cutout dimensions as all our other Epsiode speakers for ultimate versatility. This speaker is compatible with ES-ESS-BRKT-IC and SIG-CRADLE-IC.
