Focal has introduced its new 300 ICA6 angled in-ceiling loudspeaker at the Integrated System Europe (ISE) trade show in Barcelona.
The speaker is discrete and easy to install, says Focal, thanks to the Easy Quick Install patented technology that guarantees tool-free installation. Inspired by the 1000 ICA6 loudspeaker from the high-end 1000 Series range, the 300 ICA6 joins the 300 Series, incorporating many of the same including French manufacturing in Focal’s workshops in Saint-Étienne with an aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter and Flax cone. The ready-to-paint magnetic grilles supplied with the product ensure a completely unobtrusive installation.
The 300 ICA6 has a 61/2″ (16.5cm) speaker driver and is angled at 35° to counteract the “shower effect” experienced with other loudspeakers. The angle also means that it can be positioned in several ways in the ceiling, including in corners for fully discreet sound delivery. Using the product in a Dolby Atmos/DTS:X loudspeaker enhances 3D audio effects and the overall experience, says Focal, suggesting that the speakers are a perfect complement for a 300 Series Home Cinema installation.
Since the 300 ICA6 has a similar design and is the same size as the 1000 Series products, you can easily grow and develop a system.
Focal’s 300 ICA6 angled in-ceiling loudspeaker will be available in Canada in September 2022 for $649.
