Monitor Audio ICS-8 In-Ceiling Subwoofer
Designed to seamlessly complement the Monitor Audio CF230 flush fit speaker system, the ICS-8 takes your audio experience to new heights by fitting discreetly into ceiling and wall cavities, as well as under floors. This innovative subwoofer enhances the CF230 driver array, delivering punchy bass frequencies from 40 Hz to 120 Hz.
Specially Designed for Precision
Exclusively available with its specially designed pre-construction bracket, the ICS-8 ensures a precise edge to plaster and finish, maintaining the visual harmony with the CF230 system. With round and square flush fit grille options, integrators can seamlessly combine the ICS-8 with a CF230 system, creating an extensive and virtually invisible speaker setup that doesn't compromise on audio quality.
Advanced C-CAM Cone Technology
The ICS-8 features Monitor Audio's renowned C-CAM cone technology, utilizing a 20 cm long-throw driver to deliver tuneful, punchy bass. Internally angled in the rigid MDF enclosure to reduce overall box height, the driver operates in the small bandpass area, providing optimal performance while remaining unimpeded by building materials.
Bandpass Enclosure Design
The bandpass enclosure design conceals the driver inside the sealed box, with only a flexible tube and aperture for venting into the room. This ensures the performance of a 20 cm subwoofer from a 10 cm grille opening. The ICS-8 is ideal for pre-construction installations in spaces with sufficient joist depth and spacing, allowing it to breathe new audio life into existing environments.
Simple and Rewarding Installation Process
In new projects, the ICS-8 pre-construction kit simplifies installation. Integrators mount the bracket, cut out the hole, secure the tube to the d-ring, and fit the plasterboard. The 'mud bank' attaches to the plasterboard before plastering, and the plastering shield allows skimming up to the bracket. After drying, sanding reveals a precise, clean edge. When the grille is painted to match the ceiling color, the result is a perfectly discreet installation with no visible edges or shadows.
