Niles in-ceiling loudspeakers are divided into two levels, general ceiling-mount loudspeakers and Directed Soundfield™. DS loudspeakers achieve dramatic results despite architectural challenges associated with off-axis listening, including home theater installations, vaulted or cathedral ceilings, and other applications and locations where speaker placement if fixed but the soundfield is not. CM loudspeakers feature an integrated woofer/baffle design that provides a 15% improvement in woofer cone area, resulting in richer, deeper bass. The bridge-mounted tweeter allows for a sealed woofer cap, making the unit weather-resistant.
