The 300 ICW 8 built-in loudspeakers have been designed to deliver the most faithful sound reproduction, whether they are used for stereo music or home cinema. They are discreet loudspeakers which blend in perfectly with your walls and ceiling.
This 2-way coaxial loudspeaker is composed of an 8-in (21 cm) woofer with a Flax cone and an aluminium/magnesium alloy inverted dome tweeter. The 8-in woofer features Focal’s exclusive Flax technology, which rivals with the famous W cones used in the Utopia, Sopra and Electra lines. Rigid and very light, these special cones produce a sound which is natural and extremely precise. The tweeter is adjustable and rotatable, so the treble can be adjusted according to the room’s acoustics.
The 300 ICW 8 in-wall/in-ceiling loudspeaker is the biggest model in the 300 Series line. Its high sensitivity makes it capable of producing a powerful sound of up to 90 dB.
SO ORIGINAL FLAX CONE
All the speaker driver cones of the 300 SERIES range are made using Flax sandwich technology. Flax is an eco-textile with astounding structural properties: it is light, rigid and well damped for providing greater neutrality of the timbre and better definition.
TNV2 Tweeter developed for these products uses Focal’s exclusive inverted dome technology, allowing for optimal energy transfer and limited directivity.
Each 300 ICW is simply composed of two parts: a mounting frame and a loudspeaker. The mounting frame is fixed to the wall or ceiling using mounting brackets which can be manipulate single-handedly. Once the frame has been fixed securely in place, the loudspeaker can be quickly assembled to the mounting frame thanks to a quarter-turn locking mechanism.
One last important point: the magnetic grilles supplied with each product are perfect for quick and easy assembly.
In terms of design, all the products of the 300 Series line come with two types of grilles: a square grille and a circular one, to ensure they blend in perfectly with your interior. Another key aspect of the design is that the grilles are frameless, making them even more discreet and elegant.
CREATE AN INVISIBLE HOME THEATRE
Each of these loudspeakers is suitable for both in wall and in ceiling installation, making the products of the 300 Series line extremely versatile and ideal for hi-fi systems, home cinema systems or to complement classic hi-fi systems, particularly loudspeakers from the Aria 900 line.
For the finest audio systems, the products of the 300 Series line are perfectly adapted for Dolby Atmos technology for total 3D immersion. Optional installation kits are available, particularly to facilitate installation in new environments.
Today, quality sound isn’t enough to offer a product which meets all the expectations in this market. That’s why Focal has gone one step further by focusing on two new qualities required by built-in loudspeakers: a discreet design and ease of installation.
Assembling the products in this line has never been easier. Installation time is kept to a minimum thanks to the EQI. This ingenuous mechanism allows you to install the products without any tools whatsoever.
