Wisdom Audio, designer and manufacturer of loudspeaker systems tailored for the
most discerning audiophiles, recently announced the first in-ceiling loudspeaker as
part of its successful high-fidelity, high-resolution Sage loudspeaker series.
Targeting high-performance entertainment audio applications where architectural
design aesthetics can’t be compromised, the Sage Series ICS7a in-ceiling
loudspeaker system seamlessly blends into the environment, providing a high-
resolution stereo audio in a living space, a multichannel solution in a media room or
overhead channels in an immersive home theatre. Wisdom Audio will showcase the
new in-ceiling speaker product alongside its new Sage Series Superbars on stand 5-
U120 at ISE 2017, Feb. 7-10 in Amsterdam.

“With the introduction of our Sage Series line and point-source loudspeakers, our
reputation for providing superior audio within home and private theatres is
unparalleled,” said Luc Guillaume, managing director for Wisdom Audio. “Now we’re
expanding the series with the ICS7a, broadening the lineup’s application flexibility
and answering the need for a high-performance, architecture-friendly audio
solution. It produces stunning audio quality inside an innovative design, making this
product a natural fit for high-end media or living rooms.”

Behind the high-performance sound of the new Sage Series ICS7a in-ceiling speaker
is a redesign of Wisdom’s award-winning Sage P20 driver. This reengineering
introduces a breakthrough in the power shading capabilities of Wisdom Audio’s
planar magnetic driver (PMD), delivering a fully passive Sage Series point-source
product that’s capable of achieving high output down to 57Hz. To ensure maximum
clarity, the angled PMD design allows the on-axis energy to be focused straight at
the listening area. An optional laser alignment tool (LAT-IC) — sold separately from
the system — was created to assist installers in achieving ultra-precise driver
orientation, improving focus and delivering incredible imaging. The system does not
require active crossover or bi-amplification, allowing dealers worldwide to offer
Sage Series performance at a lower price point.

The key driver behind the development of this solution was flexibility — which is
why the ICS7a includes an optional Extended Coverage Waveguide that is designed
to enhance its polar pattern and allow for greater placement options. As a result,
the system is a perfect fit for applications requiring surround and overhead
