The Monitor Audio ICS-8 subwoofer enables system-enhancing bass from the most visually discreet of settings. Developed primarily to complement the Monitor Audio CF230 speaker system, the ICS-8 fits into ceiling and wall cavities and under floors, enhancing the CF230 driver array and providing punchy bass from 40 Hz to 120 Hz.
The ICS-8’s 20 cm long throw driver uses Monitor Audio’s renowned C-CAM cone technology to help ensure excellent reliability, as well as outstanding audio performance. Angled internally in the rigid MDF enclosure to reduce the ICS-8’s overall box height, this specially designed driver operates in the small bandpass area, treating listeners to tuneful, punchy bass.
This design provides the performance of 20 cm subwoofer from but a 10 cm grille opening. The ICS-8 is used in mainly pre-construction installations, when and where access can be made, such as in a basement, and when afforded sufficient joist depth and spacing. This set up allows the Monitor Audio subwoofer to breathe new audio life into an old environment.
