Focal launches angled install speaker at ISE

French audio brand, Focal used last week’s ISE to introduce its new 300 ICA6 angled in-ceiling speaker inspired by its flagship 1000 Series line.

Joining the current 300 Series line, Focal has enhanced the range with a product for hi-fi and home cinema setups.

Inspired by the 1000 ICA6 loudspeaker from the high-end 1000 Series range, the 300 ICA6 joins the 300 Series incorporating its most successful features: 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. Additionally, the speaker comes with ready-to-paint magnetic grilles to ensure a completely unobtrusive installation.

One of the main features of the new 300 ICA6 is its 6.5” (16.5cm) speaker driver which is angled at 35-degrees to counteract the ‘shower effect’ that can happen with 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 ideal for a 300 Series Home Cinema installation. The Easy Quick Install patented technology ensures quick and tool-free installation.

Focal is well-known for its futureproof designs, considering all the ways in which a loudspeaker will be used and tries to design a product pathway of discovery for its clients. Every Focal system can be added to an/or switched with the next range up within the universe of aesthetically and acoustically harmonious products its has created. As the 300 ICA6 has a similar design and is the exact same size as the 1000 Series products, end users can easily grow and develop their system.
