Lavoce unveils waterproof in-ceiling coaxial at ISE

Accessible to OEM manufacturers only, the ICF061.00 is an IP65-rated 6.5-inch 6Ω coaxial with 86dB sensitivity, 100W program power handling and a 70Hz–22kHz frequency range with constant directivity, suitable for any stealth in-wall or in-ceiling installations which may be exposed to high levels of water, salt water or humidity. The unit is totally sealed and uses a ferrite motor structure for the 6.5-inch woofer and a neodymium motor structure for the marine-certified 24mm soft dome tweeter, both of which are fully optimised using FEM techniques to maximise projection.

To support the IP65 rating, the R&D team engineered a basket made from ABS material and have used a marine-grade coated PCB for the built-in sealed crossover to prevent corrosion, together with a polypropylene cone with UV inhibitors and NBR rubber surround for the 6.5-inch woofer. The addition of silicone insulated lead wires is said to further enhance durability for outdoor applications.

The mounting depth is only 81mm and, for a fast and easy installation, the ICF061.00 incorporates a simple and robust hooking system so there is no need for access above a ceiling or behind a wall, and an edgeless mesh grille with a magnetic locking system for a near stealth installation. MOQ-dependent, the ICF061.00 is available to purchase unbranded or with a customer branded rear label and, later this year, will also be available with a 70V/100V line transformer, named ICF061.00X.


The Italian manufacturer has also released the SAN184.50iP and SAN216.00iP high motor strength neodymium subwoofers, designed to partner with the Powersoft IpalMod amplifier and software platform (8,500W @ 1Ω).

The SAN184.50iP is a 3,400W program power 18-inch with 2Ω nominal impedance, while the SAN216.00iP is a 5,000W program power 21-inch with 1Ω nominal impedance. Both are characterised by having very high motor strength, high efficiency and high power handling, together with high excursion capability (2.1-inch and 2.5-inch peak to peak respectively). To compliment the Powersoft IpalMod technology, both models have been designed using Lavoce’s proprietary Loudspeakers Design software and advanced FEA techniques. Key features include Ultra-Low Distortion (harmonic and intermodulation) and Reduced Power Compression, achieved by ensuring symmetrical force factor Bl(x) and stiffness, full motor magnetic flux saturation resulting in flat inductance over excursion and current L(x,i) and by the optimisation of thermal behaviour.

Using two SAN184.50iP 2Ω or one SAN216.00iP 1Ω with the IpalMod in an optimised and very robust cabinet design reportedly delivers overall efficiency of the amplifier-loudspeaker system, together with an improvement of the audio performance at the lowest frequencies. Fully optimised, the system combination can deliver more than double output SPL capability compared to conventional subwoofer designs, with the added benefit of no perceived ageing of the speakers. For rental and install companies, this can result in a reduction of the amount of subwoofer cabinets typically required for a project, saving on physical storage space, logistics costs and onsite power consumption.
