Our take on the Infinity ERS 610

by Dave Bar
Infinity

Hideaway high-performance sound

Infinity bookshelf and tower speakers have long been known for their precise detail and spacious imaging. Now you can enjoy the same great Infinity sound from speakers that hide away in your ceiling. The ERS 610 features a powerful three-way design utilizing a rectangular MRS (Maximum Radiating Surface™) flat-panel mid-bass transducer, dual 3" midranges, and a 1"  dome tweeter — all of them made of Infinity's rigid, lightweight CMMD (Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm) driver material, ensuring accurate response. The MRS mid-bass drivers' flat, pistonic motion delivers cleaner, more uniform sound than conventional cones for exceptional detail and resolution. The tweeters proprietary waveguide design disperses sound evenly throughout your room, for impressive imaging.

Versatile design with sound-shaping controls

The ERS 610 is ideal for home-theater surround sound, and also does a great job for multi-room audio applications. The speaker's enclosed rear back box helps provide smoother, more consistent bass response. Plus, the ERS 610's boundary compensation switch and tweeter level controls let you fine tune response to your listening room. Designed for easy installation, this speaker features mounting clamps that swing out and securely grip your ceiling from the inside. The grille and grille frame are white, and can be painted to match any decor.

Features

3-Way In-Ceiling Speaker: With technologies derived directly from the acclaimed Infinity Cascade Series, the ERS 610 in-ceiling speaker features a patent-pending 7.75"x3.375" MRS flat-panel mid-bass driver, dual 3" CMMD midrange drivers, and a 1" CMMD-dome tweeter with an integral waveguide, all mounted in a unique baffle that is optimized for home theater performance and superior off-axis response, so everyone enjoys the movie or music soundtrack.

Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (C.M.M.D.): Infinity's C.M.M.D. technology delivers accurate performance with dramatically reduced distortion for incredibly lifelike sound. Additionally, the C.M.M.D. drivers can withstand extreme temperatures, moisture, humidity and sunlight.

Maximum Radiating Surface (MRS) Flat-Panel Transducer: The flat pistonic motion of the ERS 610's MRS mid-bass driver sends a cleaner, more uniform sound to your ears than that of conventional cones, for exceptional detail and resolution.

Waveguide Design + Tweeter Level Control: The ERS610' tweeter incorporates a proprietary waveguide design to ensure smooth distribution of sound throughout the listening area. You can use the speaker's tweeter-level control to slightly boost or cut the tweeter's output, depending upon the room layout, construction, and furnishings.

Built-in Back Box w/ Paintable Grille: The ERS 610 includes a back box for smoother bass performance, and can be adjusted for placement near walls or corners. The grille and flange can be painted, allowing this speaker to match any decor.

Boundary Compensation Control: This control is designed to be engaged when positioning the loudspeaker within 2' of another surface to eliminate the bass peak caused by the second surface and to maintain a smooth, natural bass response.

Spring-Post Speaker Terminals: The ERS 610 in-ceiling speaker is fitted with spring-post speaker terminals that will accept bare-wire (up to 12AGW), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single only).

Mounting Options: The ERS 610 features mounting clamps that swing out to securely grip your wall from the inside. This speaker requires a cutout of 11.375", with a depth of 5.625" (including the thickness of the drywall). Once the hole is cut, the speaker can be dropped in and the locking tabs can be tightened, allowing you to secure the speaker to the drywall without any extra assembly.

Note: An optional rough-in frame (IW10R RIF, sold separately) is available from Infinity for use in new construction installations before drywall is installed.

Infinity ERS 610

Written By Anonymous, Tulsa, OK on Wednesday, September 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these because they had an angle to the tweeters and would allow me to aim the speakers to better distribute the sound to my listening positions. I think the overall size of the speaker is a bit ridiculous because if you had to replace these speakers later then it would be difficult to find a speaker than would fill the hole made in the sheetrock. Also for the cutout being almost 12" you would think that Infinity would provide a speaker capable of lower frequencies. So if you would like to aim the speaker from the ceiling may I suggest to go with Definitive Technology ceiling speakers. They are capable of much lower frequencies. I am happy with the purchase, but the size and lack of low frequencies is these speakers low point.
Pros:
Angle of the tweeters, clarity
Cons:
Bass output, Size of Speaker cutout
