BUENA PARK, Calif. (February 1, 2016)—A super compact version of the NEXO ID Series will make its debut at the ISE Show in Amsterdam. This brand-new family of low-profile high-output loudspeakers is already finding their way into theatres, auditoriums and fixed installations. Class-leading power and performance combined with an unprecedented level of versatility, the new ID Series products are suitable for a large variety of install and touring applications.
ID (InSpace Definition) describes a new category of products, intended as problem-solvers for the toolkits of system designers and installers in all areas of the audio business. The physical characteristics of the loudspeaker cabinets are super-compact and low profile, enabling use in architecturally challenging spaces.
The ID Series is comprised of three products. The ID24 full-range compact speaker, using twin 4” drivers in a V formation in combination with an HF compression driver on an easily rotatable horn from the back panel; currently four horn patterns are available. Two low-profile subs, the ID S110 (1×10″) and ID S210 (2×10″) complete the ID offerings.
The unique design of the ID24 offers so many possibilities for specific applications that NEXO has designated three versions: ID24i for installation, ID24t for touring and AV rental, and ID24c the “a la carte” or custom version, including any RAL color with quantity. Certain weatherization features are built into the ID24 so that application can extend to corrosive environments. The ID24 can be mounted vertically or horizontally, providing four different directivity options per cabinet.
The ID24i is designed for the fixed installation environment with termination in captive cable for fast, secure connectivity using existing wiring. It is available in a black or white finish with a matching fabric grill, and threaded holes for compatibility with NEXO and popular third-party mounting hardware.
For AV and live music applications, the ID24t features NL4 connectors and quick release rigging points for easy mounting, horizontally or vertically. The speaker is compatible with a range of NEXO accessories, and is available in black with a matching steel grill. These can be deployed as under-balcony speakers, pole mounted, flown from a truss, or precisely angled for stage front-fill applications, and can even be used as a wedge monitor, when placed upright in the horizontal plane.
There are also two compact, powerful subs in the ID Series. The S110 single 10” and the S210 double 10” have a low-profile, sleek design, which allow them to be easily installed discretely in a wide range of locations; i.e. within or on walls, staircases, under furniture, and more.
The ID24 benefits from highly cost-effective amplification opportunities in three specific ways: 16 ID24 cabinets can be powered by a single NXAMP4x4, using a combination of DTD Controller and DTDAMP models, or by using the DTD Controller with existing, generic amps!
Remote monitoring using the NeMo application, EtherSound or Dante network and AES/EBU digital input compatibility extend user control in real-time to a front of house position as an option.
