NEAR to Unveil In-Ground Subwoofer
NEAR has announced that its new IGS10 outdoor subwoofer will exhibit at CEDIA Expo and arrive in March 2015.
The product features a 10-inch woofer design, joining the 12-inch IGS12 subwoofer and three full-range models in the IG in-ground series.
The subwoofer features industrial design by Allen Boothroyd and acoustic design by Bill Kieltyka:
The IGS10 like the other IG series models employ ultra low mass Metal Diaphragm Technology (MDT™) woofers for best-in-class sound quality and durability. The woofer is a Magnetic Liquid Suspension (MLS) “spiderless” design resulting in longer cone excursion for superior bass output and lower distortion. As an added benefit, the magnetic fluid serves to draw heat away from the voice coil for exceptional high power durability. The IGS10 also features NEAR’s innovative UDIO (upside down/inside out) low frequency driver technology. UDIO is an inverted cone diaphragm woofer driven by voice coils wound both inside and outside the former. With UDIO technology, frequency linearity and sound quality are maintained even at punishingly loud volume levels.
The IGS10 will retail for $1,199 starting next March. See NEAR at Booth 886 at CEDIA Expo.
