Wisdom Audio today announced the first in-ceiling loudspeaker as part of its Sage loudspeaker series. Targeting high-performance entertainment audio applications where architectural design aesthetics are important, the Sage Series ICS7a in-ceiling loudspeakers is designed as a multi-channel solution in a media room or overhead channels in an immersive home theater. Wisdom Audio will showcase the new in-ceiling speaker product alongside its new Sage Series Superbars on stand 5-U120 at ISE 2017, Feb. 7-10 in Amsterdam.
Inside the Sage Series ICS7a in-ceiling speaker is a redesign of Wisdom’s Sage P20 driver. This re-engineering introduces a change in the power shading capabilities of Wisdom Audio’s planar magnetic driver (PMD), delivering a fully passive Sage Series point-source product that’s capable of achieving high output down to 57Hz. To ensure maximum clarity, the angled PMD design allows the on-axis energy to be focused straight at the listening area. An optional laser alignment tool (LAT-IC) — sold separately from the system — was created to assist installers in achieving ultra-precise driver orientation, improving focus and delivering incredible imaging. The system does not require active crossover or bi-amplification, allowing dealers worldwide to offer Sage Series performance at a lower price point.
