Niles Upgrades In-Ceiling Speaker Lines

9/23/2010 09:00:00 AM Eastern

ATLANTA — Niles is coming to the CEDIA Expo to upgrade
its Directed Soundfield (DS) and step-up ICS series
of in-ceiling speakers.

Niles is updating the line by adding
narrow-bezel, low-profile, magnetically
attached grilles to look as unobtrusive
as possible.

To the ICS series, the brand is also
adding integrated custom-tuned Rear
Wave Control (RWC) enclosures to deliver
predictable audio performance and
reduce unwanted sound from entering
adjacent rooms. On the DS series, the
enclosures are available for the first time
as an option.

Each speaker in both series is said to feature a unique
shape to fit easily through a cutout to simplify installation,
particularly in retrofit applications.

The ICS speakers are part of the Niles IntelliControl ICS
line, which is exclusive to select pre-authorized dealers.

The SKUs in the DS series consist of 7- and 8-inch
models, including:

• the DS7MP LCR with 7-inch glass fiber woofer cone,
1-inch soft dome tweeter, dialog switch for center channel
applications, and tweeter-level switch;

• the DS7PR LCR with 7-inch glass fiber woofer cone,
1-inch fluid-cooled dome tweeter, dialog switch and tweeter-
level control; and

• the DS7HD LCR with 7-inch IMPACT
(Improved Aluminum Ceramic
Technology) woofer cone, 1-inch titanium-
nano-coated IMPACT tweeter,
Kapton non-conductive voice coil former
and copper shorting caps, dialog
switch, and tweeter-level switch.

Prices were unavailable.

The eight-SKU ICS series consists
of the following:

• RWC7.3 LCR with 7-inch glass
fiber woofer cone, 1-inch soft dome
tweeter, dialog switch, and centerchannel
switch;

• RWC7.5 LCR with 7-inch woofer, 1-inch fluid-cooled
dome tweeter, dialog switch and tweeter-level switch; and

• RWC7.7 Elite Performance with 7-inch IMPACT woofer
cone and extended pole, 1-inch nano-coated IMPACT
dome tweeter, Kapton non-conductive voice coil former,
dialog switch and tweeter-level switch.

Prices were unavailable.
