300 Series

Focal’s main concern has always been providing high quality sound for every situation. With the new 300 Series line of built-in loudspeakers with Flax technology, we have gone one step further by giving our built-in products two new qualities: a discreet design and easy installation.

There are 3 models in the 300 Series line:

300 ICW 4

300 ICW 4
a discreet, ultra-compact loudspeaker with an excellent sensitivity/size ratio.

300 ICW 6

300 ICW 6
a versatile and balanced loudspeaker with a natural and precise mid-range. This loudspeaker represents the strict definition of Focal sound.

300 ICW 8

300 ICW 8
with its rich bass, great power handling and an impressive sensitivity of 90dB, this is what you call a “loud”speaker.

 

INVISIBLE LOUDSPEAKER WITH REMARKABLE QUALITY SOUND

Throughout Focal’s history, sound quality has always been what sets its loudspeakers apart from those of its competitors: our goal is to provide sound which is musical, natural and dynamic, and which arouses strong emotions. These are the fundamental aspects of the “Spirit of Sound”. These qualities inspired the development of these three loudspeakers in the 300 Series line which correspond perfectly with Focal’s range of high-fidelity loudspeakers.

To achieve such quality, all the speaker drivers used in the 300 Series loudspeakers feature the natural Flax sandwich cone from the Aria 900 line due to the exceptional acoustic qualities of this flax-based eco-textile. The mid-range and low frequencies sound rich, natural and have great definition, whereas a mellow and smooth treble is provided by the 1″ (25mm) Aluminium/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter, a technology widely used in the Aria and Chorus ranges.

DESIGNED TO ADAPT TO YOUR USE

Each of the loudspeakers in this line is equally suitable for both In-Wall" and “In-Ceiling” installation.

To perfectly integrate your interior and become one with your walls and ceiling, the ICW loudspeakers come supplied with two designs of protective grilles. The square grilles blend in with wall-mounted screens, whereas the round grilles match the most common shape of in-ceiling lighting fixtures.

Ultra-thin and frameless, these protective grilles are ultra-discreet, making your loudspeakers seem invisible. The grilles can also be painted to ensure that they blend in perfectly with your décor. You won’t even know they’re there; leaving you alone with your music of film.

The products of the 300 Series line are extremely versatile and can be used for hi-fi systems, built-in home cinema systems or to enhance 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.

AN INNOVATION FOR EASY INSTALLATION OF YOUR IN-WALL AND IN-CEILING LOUDSPEAKERS

Today, quality sound alone isn’t enough for a product to meet all the expectations of music lovers. So Focal has focused its attention on making these loudspeakers easy to install and to assemble. That’s why Focal’s R&D department developed the EQI system (“Easy Quick Install”), making in-wall and in-ceiling installation a quick and easy process without the need of any particular tools.

The three loudspeakers in the 300 Series line all benefit from this technological innovation. Each ICW loudspeaker is composed of two parts: the EQI mounting frame and the loudspeaker. The mounting frame is fixed to the wall or ceiling using the easy-to-use mounting brackets. Once the frame has been securely fixed in place, the loudspeaker can easily be mounted to the frame thanks to a quarter-turn locking mechanism: installing the loudspeaker just takes a flick of the wrist.

Then, you just need to add the finishing touch by choosing whether to mount the square grilles or the round grilles. To make assembly even easier and quicker, the grilles are magnetic; so they’re detachable and easy to mount to the loudspeakers.
