Snell Announces An Entry Level, In -Cabinet Speaker at CEDIA 2003

Installer-Friendly with Exceptional Performance, the ICS 500 LCR was Specially Designed for "Invisible" Installations

CEDIA EXPO, Indianapolis, Sept. 5, 2003 -Snell Acoustics, acclaimed for its tradition of handcrafted loudspeakers with leading edge designs, introduces the entry -level, in -cabinet ICS 500 LCR Speaker at CEDIA EXPO 2003 beginning today in Indianapolis.


Innovatively designed by Snell's chief engineer Dr. Joseph D'Appolito, a clever re -configuration of the elegant QBx25 Tower, gives birth to the ICS 500 LCR speaker for applications that demand the performance of a freestanding tower, in an easily integratable package. .

Commonly, bookshelf and tower speakers sound "chesty and cupped" when placed inside cabinets and entertainment centers. To solve this problem, the ICS 500 uses a special utility enclosure that houses dual 6 1/2 -inch Aerogel woofers, and a 1 -inch aluminum dome tweeter. The cabinet was specially sized and tuned to integrate into most audio /video furniture, fitting easily onto a typical 20 -inch wide cabinet shelf when placed horizontally or a 9 -inch space when placed vertically.

Voiced to compensate for cabinet boundaries and off axis response, the ICS 500 achieves an openness and clarity that matches today's top freestanding designs. Build by hand in the Peabody, MA factory; the ICS 500 will withstand the rigors of today's challenging movie soundtracks while upholding its "audiophile" pedigree when playing music.

The ICS 500 will sell for a suggested list price of $550 each, in durable Black Oak. It can be seen with Snell's other outstanding products at Booths 1304 and 1308 in the Indianapolis Convention Center during CEDIA EXPO.
