IN-WALL/IN-CEILING LOUDSPEAKER, 8″ FLAX MID-BASS
Your 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” (21cm) woofer with a Flax cone and an aluminium/magnesium alloy inverted dome tweeter. The 8″ 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 90dB.
The built-in 300 ICW 8 loudspeaker is extremely easy to install. The EQI (Easy Quick Installation) mounting framesupplied adapts to all walls and ceilings of a thickness ranging from 3/16″ to 1 3/16″ (5 to 30mm). No screws or tools are required for installation. The mounting frame is equipped with a mounting bracket which secures the system in place. Once the frame has been installed, all you have to do is insert the loudspeaker and lock it in place by rotating it 90°. Then, just add the finishing touch by choosing whether to mount the square grilles or the round grilles. The grilles are magnetic, so you simply place them on the loudspeaker. They are also equipped with anti vibration studs to avoid any unwanted noise. Available in a white finish, the protective grilles have also been designed so that they can be painted to ensure they blend in perfectly with your wall or ceiling.
The loudspeaker is protected from dust and it isn’t affected by humidity, so you can install it in a bathroom, a kitchen etc.
FLAX CONE SPEAKER DRIVERS
The woofer of the 300 ICW 8 loudspeaker benefits from Focal’s Flax technology. The cone is composed of a Flax structure sandwiched between two sheets of glass fibres. This eco-textile gives the cone lightness, rigidity and great damping properties. This gives the sound an even more neutral timbre. The mid-range has excellent definition and the bass are very rich.
This 81/4″ (21cm) speaker driver offers great power handling and exceptional sensitivity. It is capable of producing powerful sound up to 90dB.
ADJUSTABLE AND ROTATABLE INVERTED DOME TWEETER
The TNV2 Tweeter in the 300 ICW loudspeakers comes from the Chorus and Easya ranges. It integrates Focal’s exclusive inverted dome technology, allowing for optimal energy transfer and limited directivity. The dome’s aluminium/magnesium alloy guarantees outstanding rigidity and damping to provide a mellow and dynamic treble. This smooth sound is also enhanced thanks to the Poron suspension supporting the dome.
The tweeter used in the 300 ICW 8 loudspeaker has three settings (-3dB, 0dB, +3dB) enabling you to adjust the treble according to the acoustics of the listening room. It can also be adjusted (±20°) and rotated 360°. You can direct the tweeter towards the listening point for even more precise treble and stereo image. These two adjustments also enable you to control the loudspeaker’s off-axis response.
