The product of expert Crestron® audio engineering, Essence™ speakers deliver the pinnacle of performance for demanding residential installations. Select esoteric materials, top shelf components and a refined, high-end appearance underscore the meticulous design behind each model. The result is a complete line of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers worthy of a place in every room of the finest custom home.
The Essence line promises the ultimate in installed audio design, delivering simply stunning sound quality while minimizing any impact on your décor thanks to paintable zero-bezel grilles. Both round and square grilles are included. Streamlined installation is facilitated through a three-point, spring-loaded toggle clamp mounting system optimized to minimize interference with obstructions within the ceiling space.
The Essence IC8 model provides a pair of 2-way in-ceiling loudspeakers featuring 8 inch long-throw woven Kevlar® woofers for deep, defined low end, and large 1.1 inch advanced synthetic polymer dome tweeters for crisp, fluent highs, articulate midrange, and consistent coverage across a wider listening area. Cast aluminum woofer baskets assure pure, uncolored bass response. Offset post-mounting of the tweeters reduces midrange frequency response anomalies normally caused by interference between the woofer and the back of the tweeter. Precision 4th order crossovers utilizing the highest quality components ensure a full, rich and detailed response across the spectrum. Power handling is an impressive 175 Watts (program), with a wide frequency response from 38 Hz to 20 kHz (±3 dB).
