NHT - N-iC3-ARC - In-Ceiling Speaker (Single)
Our 3-tweeter, 6.5" (165.1mm) in-ceiling speaker with Aluminum drivers that features Anti-Resonance Casting (ARC), and a low-vision grill.
The iC3-ARC is a super-premium, 3rd generation, high-end in-ceiling speaker utilizing a number of unique technologies that work together to deliver an audio performance well beyond your expectations. Sold as single units rather than speaker pairs, iC3-ARC in-ceiling speakers are ideally used for premium multi-room audio, as home theater speakers for any channel, in office commercial venues or anywhere you want affordable high-end sound hidden from view. Weather and moisture resistant materials make the iC3-ARC suitable for outdoor eves, covered patios, and master bathrooms as well.
The iC3-ARC also features a redesigned micro-perforated, bezel-less grill that attaches magnetically and reduces the installed footprint by almost 10% over its predecessor. The iC3-ARC in-ceiling speaker technologies include the premium anodized aluminum version NHT’s proprietary 3-tweeter array to deliver the widest, sound field currently available from any ceiling mount speaker. This patented array is nested in the center of a custom designed, long-throw, 6.5" (165.1mm) aluminum-cone woofer. These components are then assembled into the remarkable new Anti-Resonant Casting or ARC “monocoque” chassis and 3-tweeter array sub-assembly to provide unprecedented strength and a lifetime of durability while acoustically reducing frame vibrations (distortions) to inaudible levels.
Just before we install the speaker components, a smooth rubberized paint finish process is applied to the chassis that works together with ARC to help damp surface vibrations that can further blur the sound. The iC3-ARC is also an integrated, serviceable design and features a bezel-less grill/frame design (no exposed frame lip or wide trim ring around the grill) and the beautiful micro-perforated grill attaches and centers itself magnetically!
Simply said, with over 25 years of acoustic design under our belt, the iC3-ARC is simply NHT’s best mid-size ceiling mount speaker to date. Be sure to use the companion iCB6 pre-construction bracket for exposed ceiling joints. Note: this bracket IS NOT used for retrofit application (i.e. existing structures).
