Nice completes its convergence with ELAN, SpeakerCraft and Panamax Energy Management

After acquiring Nortek Security & Control in 2021, Nice is focused on strengthening its position in North America, by converging its product portfolio towards a unified brand.

The process is part of the company's plans to offer a complete and integrated ecosystem of products, aimed at residential, commercial and perimeter protection applications.

"Delivering on this vision will allow us to tell a more comprehensive and integrated story, designed to better address the needs of our partners and customers. By focusing on home management solutions first, we are equipped to begin convergence and develop a more comprehensive end-to-end solution for homes and businesses."

New audio solutions
The company also announced the launch of a new series of audio devices, which was presented at CEDIA Expo 2023, a specialized home technology fair.

Nice indicated that the new references of its catalog are the SC-IC3 small aperture speaker, the SC-IC-SUB8 small aperture subwoofer, the SC4-100 4-channel amplifier, the SB-40P soundbar and the AIM Mk3 series of architectural speakers.

This is Nice's first series of advanced audio solutions, following the company's transition with brands such as SpeakerCraft, ELAN and Panamax.

"In our new phase we are committed to improving the experience of our customers and partners through continuous innovation, performance and flexibility. We have optimized these products to work together as a complete system, or as standalone devices, to meet the needs of integrators and designers," said Jeff Shaw, Vice President of Product Management at Nice.

Small aperture speaker SC-IC3
It allows different installation options, with round and square grids included, as well as flush mounting kits. The high-performance 3.5" ceiling speaker features a carbon fiber woofer, 1" aluminum tweeter and custom crossover design to deliver dynamic sound through a 4.75" aperture.

Small aperture subwoofer SC-IC-SUB8
It reproduces best-in-class bass through a small aperture and features filtering circuitry that eliminates unwanted frequencies, a custom woofer, and dual 1 1/2" voice coils that result in optimal performance.

SC4-100 4-channel analog filter amplifier
Designed for flexibility and convenience in distributed audio and home entertainment applications. Powerful, easy to set up and install, the SC4-100 delivers up to 100 watts of power to each of the four independent, pair-bridgeable channels, allowing for a 2-, 3- or 4-channel configuration.

In addition, each channel has two selectable analog high-pass filters to optimize the performance of connected satellite speakers or subwoofers, without the hassle of DSP or IP. Independent level control, individual indicators, audio detection and input and output triggers complete the feature set.

SB-40P Soundbar
With its 3 channels it reproduces an exceptional and dynamic sound, with an independent central camera that improves the clarity of the dialogues and left and right cameras that create a wide soundstage for music and movies. The combination of graphite, polypropylene and carbon fiber materials produces exceptionally clear and dynamic sound, perfect for a standalone home entertainment solution or integrated into a complete home audio system.

AIM Mk3 Speakers
They incorporate the innovative ARC Tweeter Array™ technology and feature an adjustable woofer and WavePlane™, as well as a newly designed crossover to support the most demanding audio content and offer three-dimensional details in immersive high-fidelity audio platforms.
