Induction Dynamics (Booth 108) is demonstrating its updated ID1 tower speaker in both a 2-channel configuration and as part of a multichannel surround system at CEDIA. First introduced in the 1990s, the ID1 has been embraced by audiophiles around the world for its perfectly matched drivers and hand-adjusted crossover components that ensure flawless reproduction of audio source material.
The updated version,released earlier this year,provides a new front-ported cabinet design and separated high and low subwoofers for accurate bass response even in challenging rooms. As with the original ID1, the new version includes a unique three-inch soft dome mid-range driver that covers the entire voice bandwidth for completely natural sounding vocals. This driver is paired with a 1.125-inch inverted titanium dome tweeter, one 6.5-inch Kevlar cone woofer with rubber surround and cast frame, and two 10-inch mica-graphite poly cone subwoofers with rubber surround and cast frame. All drivers are hand-selected to match one another within 1/2 dB; Induction Dynamics’ patented S4X super fourth order crossover provides superior driver control for a wider vertical sweet spot.
“When it first came out, the ID1 represented a breakthrough in speaker sound,” says Duke Ducoff, MSE Audio VP of sales. “This new version takes that signature sound a step further with a new subwoofer driver placement that reduces bass peaks and valleys caused by room reflections. These speakers are equally at home in a listening room or as front speakers in a home theater system. We’re excited for the opportunity to put it through its paces for CEDIA attendees.”
The ID1 is available in freestanding, onwall and in-wall configurations. Standard finishes include rosewood gloss, black gloss,black satin, and sports car red gloss; any desired woodgrain or paint may be accommodated. Grille fabrics are available in 63 different colors. All Induction Dynamics speakers are manufactured in Lenexa, Kansas USA.
