Fo­cal is ex­pand­ing its in­ter­est in ar­chi­tec­tural speak­ers, with the in­tro­duc­tion of the en­try-level 100 Se­ries and mid-priced 300 Se­ries (pic­tured) at ISE 2018. Both of­fer a wide ar­ray of in-wall/in-ceil­ing models for Hi-Fi, AV and mul­ti­room ap­pli­ca­tions.

The com­pact, en­try-level in-ceil­ing 100 Se­ries fea­tures a Poly­glass mid/bass driver cone and alu­minium in­verted dome tweeter.

The line is com­posed of three coax­ial loud­speak­ers, all of which can be used as ei­ther in-wall or in ceil­ing loud­speak­ers (100 ICW5, 100 ICW6 and 100 ICW8), one coax­ial in ceil­ing stereo loud­speaker (100 IC6ST), one in-ceil­ing loud­speaker (IC LCR5) and two prod­ucts specif­i­cally in­tended for in wall use (100 IW6, 100 IWLCR5).

The 300 Se­ries range is made in France and fea­tures ex­clu­sive Fo­cal tech­nolo­gies, such as its Flax cone and the alu­minium-mag­ne­sium in­verted dome tweeter. They also boast Fo­cal’s EQI sys­tem (Easy Quick In­stall). The 300 Se­ries (ICW4, ICW6, ICW8) has been joined by three new models (IW6, IWLCR6, ICLCR5). The 300 ICLCR5 is equipped with a left, cen­tre, right chan­nel se­lec­tor to me­chan­i­cally di­rect the sound to­wards the lis­ten­ing point, mak­ing it suit­able for home cin­e­mas.

For in-ceil­ing loud­speak­ers, the ded­i­cated 300 ICLCR5 is equipped with an ad­justable tweeter hous­ing for di­rect­ing sound to­wards the lis­ten­ing point. The tweeter level is also ad­justable. The flag­ship is the IWLCR6 home cin­ema model.

Whether they’re used as in-ceil­ing or in-wall loud­speak­ers, they re­quire no tools to in­stall, says the brand.
