Introduction - Mercury iC
Mercury iC sets a new performance standard for budget in-ceiling loudspeakers, delivering Tannoy's renowned sound quality in discreet installations anywhere in the home. Mercury iC draws heavily on the technology and acoustic design of Tannoy’s multi award-winning Mercury series of traditional cabinet loudspeakers that have dominated the budget hi-fi market for over two decade. Constantly evolving and now in its best-ever sixth iteration. Mercury’s value, ease of drive and outstanding sound quality is available in a Tannoy in-ceiling loudspeaker for the first time.
Mercury’s value, ease of drive and outstanding sound quality is available in a Tannoy in-ceiling loudspeaker for the first time.
Available in two models, the Mercury iC5 and even larger and more potent Mercury iC6, the range has been designed with music reproduction at its heart. Set in a rigid, high-tech chassis the driver and crossover configuration offers a winning combination of rich bass, articulate vocals and a sweet, extended high frequency performance. Unlike the majority of budget in-ceiling loudspeakers, Mercury iC draws on Tannoy’s long heritage in professional and residential loudspeaker design to deliver a true musical loudspeaker in a discrete, fit and forget format.
Tannoy’s experience in ceiling loudspeaker design extends to fitting over 5,000 units in the famous Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai, as well as prestigious hotel installations in Las Vegas including The Bellagio and Wynns. It is no surprise then that Mercury iC is incredibly simple to install, featuring shallow profiles, four innovative self-aligning clamps and high-quality gold plated spring binding terminals. Mercury iC delivers all of the outstanding value, performance and versatility that has made Tannoy's Mercury series loudspeakers best sellers for over two decades.
The flagship of the Tannoy Mercury iC range, the Mercury iC6, is a potent in-ceiling loudspeaker ideal for larger rooms or where music performance is critical. Despite its power and performance, a cut out of just 200 mm (8.94”) and depth of 77 mm (3.00”) is required to install the Mercury iC6 to deliver full range performance. Using advance materials the iC6’s 150 mm (6.00”) mid-bass driver and 22 mm (0.87”) tweeter combination offers a class-leading 89 dB efficiency and exceptional power handling. With recommended amplifiers up to 90 watts per channel, the Mercury iC6 is capable of handling 180Watt peak program material and deliver exceptional music performance even at very high sound pressure levels.
The Mercury iC6 tweeter has been engineered to work in harmony with the mid-bass driver, using a potent neodymium magnet system to maintain the high efficiency and power handling across the audio range. Its smooth HF performance, directional mounting pod and wide dispersion characteristics make for a musical and articulate loudspeaker capable of producing true high fidelity performance whatever the installation.
Installing the Mercury iC6 could not be simpler. Featuring a self-adhesive cut-out template, self-aligning clamps and gold plated spring terminals, the iC6 can be installed and running in a matter of minutes. The smooth white bezel and white push-fit grille can be painted with household paint to complement or contrast any room décor. Developed in conjunction with Tannoy’s Mercury series of traditional hi-fi loudspeakers, the Mercury iC6 is ideal for use as a main music loudspeaker or can be integrated as part of a multi-channel home theatre system.
