The ICE630LCR (left, center, right) speaker provides imaging and staging that would be lost with regular, down-firing ceiling speakers. The woofer is set at a 15-degree angle. The critical high and mid-range frequencies are then pointed toward the listener, not the floor. So, when your video tracks left to right, the soundtracks right along with the video. This speaker is also great for rear and side surrounds in a 5.1 or 7.1 system.
What Are the Benefits of an Angled In-ceiling Speaker?
The angled speaker is a real problem solver because not every space is ideal for custom home theater sound applications. The angled in-ceiling speaker features a 15-degree angle for the midbass driver plus a pivoting tweeter for placement flexibility. This speaker can be part of the three-piece set to handle the front stage of the surround system when both on-wall and in-wall are not a favorable option. The angled design allows the ideal place in the ceiling closer to the wall just above the monitor. This creates a more realistic sound image when compared to normal in-ceiling speakers that are mounted closer to directly above the viewing area. Standard in-ceiling speakers are generally placed at least three feet from the wall to avoid the reflective sound. The angled speaker can be placed within a foot of the wall
