Setting the tweeter (300ICW6 and 300ICW8)
The tweeter can be set using the switch at the rear of the loudspeaker as shown in the diagram (fig. B).
Orienting the tweeter (300ICW6 and 300ICW8)
The tweeter can be tilted +/- 20° and can be pivoted 360°: direct the tweeter towards the listening area for
maximum precision of the treble and of the stereo image (fig. C).
In-wall position of the main loudspeakers.
Your Integration 300 Series loudspeakers have been designed to deliver the most faithful sound
reproduction, whether they are used for stereo music or home cinema. Nonetheless, some simple rules
should be followed to optimise their performance and to guarantee good tonal balance and a realistic sound
image. The loudspeakers should be positioned symmetrically, facing the listening area, ideally forming an
equilateral triangle with it.
However, it is possible to vary these distances to find an ideal compromise according to the particular dis-
position of the room (fig. D).
The loudspeakers should be positioned at the same height, in the same horizontal plane. Ideally, the tweeter
should be positioned at the same height as the listener's ears when in the normal listening area (fig. E).
Position of surround and central loudspeakers
The sophistication of film soundtracks means that a very broad range of surround-sound effects can be
achieved nowadays. The choice of positioning for surround-sound loudspeakers is crucial for achieving
a realistic 3D sound-space. The aim is to apply some basic rules to achieve sounds that are sufficiently
diffused and difficult to locate (fig. F).
The centre loudspeaker must be positioned near the screen for realistic reproduction of dialogue (fig. Fa).
If you’re using a micro-perforated projection screen (acoustically transparent), you can consider placing a
centre loudspeaker behind it.
If you plan to use the 300ICW products from the 300 Series range as in-wall loudspeakers, place the sur-
round loudspeakers high enough up, above the listeners’ ears. Do not place surround-sound loudspeakers
too far behind the listening area, as this degrades sound perception. Aim for a placement along the side
walls, on either side of the listening area or ever so slightly behind the listening area to achieve more envel-
oping sound effects (fig. Fb, Fd).
If you plan to use the 300ICW products from the 300 Series range as in-ceiling loudspeakers, place them
far enough apart on each side of the listening area, or ever so slightly behind the listening area (fig. Fc).
For 6.1 or 7.1 surround-sound systems, you can use a combination of loudspeakers from the 300 Series as
both in-wall or in-ceiling loudspeakers.
The only maintenance required for the Integration 300 Series loudspeakers is dusting with a dry cloth. If the
loudspeaker is dirty, we recommend simply cleaning it with a damp cloth.
Never use solvents, detergents, alcohol-based or corrosive products, scrapers or scourers to clean the loud-
speaker surface. Keep the loudspeakers away from sources of heat.
If you wish to do so, you can paint the grilles of your 300ICW products so they blend in with your interior.
We recommend first removing the grille from the product and then painting it using a paint spraying device.
You can use the same type of paint as the wall paint (fig. G).
If you want to paint the ceiling/wall without removing your 300ICW product, we have supplied a protective
