Focal unveiled the 300 ICA6 angled in-ceiling loudspeaker at the ISE (Integrated System Europe) trade fair last week. Available from September for $499, the French company says the 300 Series speaker is both discrete and easy to install. Although designed for use in both home theater and hi-fi installations, Focal promotes the ICA6’s suitability as an Atmos/DTS:X height speaker.

As with the original 300 Series speaker line, the 300 ICA6 is manufactured in France at Focal’s workshops in Saint-Étienne, and incorporates aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeters and flax cones. These design assets and technologies are deployed to make them coherent with the brand’s Aria and Kanta lines. Ready-to-paint magnetic grilles are supplied with the product to ensure a completely unobtrusive installation.The speaker has a 61/2-inch (16.5cm) driver and is angled at 35° to counteract the “shower effect” experienced with other loudspeakers. The angle also means it can be positioned in several ways in the ceiling, as well as in corners for fully discreet sound delivery. An Easy Quick Install patented technology ensures a quick and tool-free installation, according to Focal.

When designing, developing and manufacturing its products, Focal says it considers all the ways in which said products will be used and “tries to design a product pathway of discovery for its clients”. Focal systems can be added to and/or switched with the next range up within the company’s portfolio of products. Additionally, the 300 ICA6 has a similar design and is the same size as the 1000 Series, so consumers can grow or mix and match their systems as desired.
