ISE 2022: Focal introduces 300 ICA6
French brand Focal has unveiled the 300 ICA6 angled in-ceiling loudspeaker at the ISE exhibition in Barcelona. Discrete and easy to install, this versatile loudspeaker joins Focal’s current 300 Series line.
Inspired by the 1000 ICA6 loudspeaker from the high-end 1000 Series range, the 300 ICA6 joins the 300 Series incorporating all the features that made it so successful: meticulous French manufacturing in Focal’s workshops in Saint-Étienne with an Aluminium/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter and Flax cone, exclusive technologies for high quality precision and total sonic coherence with the brand’s classic loudspeaker lines Aria and Kanta.
In addition, 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 greatly enhances 3D audio effects and the overall experience, making it the perfect complement for a 300 Series Home Cinema installation. The Easy Quick Install patented technology guarantees quick and tool-free installation, too.
When it comes to designing, developing and manufacturing its products, Focal considers all the ways in which they will be used and tries to design a product pathway of discovery for its clients. Every Focal system can be added to and/or switched with the next range up within the universe of aesthetically and acoustically harmonious products it has created.
As the 300 ICA6 has a similar design and is the exact same size as the 1000 Series products, users can easily grow and develop their system.
