The new NEXO ID Series will be on display at InfoComm 2015 in demo room #W206C. A new Space A category of products, the ID Series is intended for use as problem solvers in toolkits of system designers and installers within the professional audio industry.
The NEXO ID Series loudspeaker cabinet is a very compact, low profile, small format, yet high output single speaker for use under balcony, for front fill and side fill applications, and is the perfect accompaniment to NEXO line arrays in acoustically challenging spaces. Using a variety of mounting options, the ID24 compact cabinet can fit into almost any environment, offering high SPL output with variable directivities enabling it to ‘beam’ sound into difficult spaces.
The ID Series class-leading power and performance combined with an unprecedented level of versatility, makes it suitable for a huge variety of install and touring applications. Currently, the new series is comprised of the ID24 full-range compact speaker that uses twin 4” drivers, V formation, in combination with an HF compression driver offering two preset directivity options. Complementing the ID24 is two extremely low profile yet powerful subs: ID S110 (1×10″) and ID S210 (2×10″).
The unique design of the ID24 offers the user so many possibilities for tailored specification that NEXO has designated three versions: ID24i for installation, ID24t for touring and AV applications, and ID24c or the “a la carte” version which allows the customer to custom-configure the speaker to match precise requirements. The ID24 has a unique user-adjustable horn, which can be rotated easily without the need for tools by a switch on the rear panel to give 60 or 120- degree HF coverage with the standard horn fitted. This allows the HF horizontal dispersion to be ‘tuned’ for the given application – installed or touring. The ID24 can be mounted vertically or horizontally, effectively providing the user four different directivity options in each cabinet.
The ID24i, tailored to the fixed installation environment with its termination in captive cable for fast, secure connectivity using existing wiring, is available in Black or White with a matching fabric grille, threaded holes for compatibility with NEXO and popular third-party mounting hardware, and is all-weather IP55 rated.
For audio video and live music applications, the ID24t has a touring spec, featuring Speakon connectors and quick release rigging points for easy mounting – horizontally or vertically. The ID24t, also compatible with a range of NEXO and third party accessories, is available in black with a matching steel grille.
The unusual asymmetric shape of the ID24 cabinet further maximizes its possibilities. The module can be mounted horizontally or vertically, and, using the correct accessories, can be deployed as an under-balcony reinforcement module. In live performance situations, the ID24 can be pole-mounted or clipped onto a truss. A purpose-designed accessory allows it to be precisely angled for stage front-fill applications and can even be used as a wedge monitor, when stood upright in the horizontal plane.
Unique to the ID24, the ‘a la carte’ version offers the customer an unprecedented level of customization to match the loudspeaker to precise requirements, i.e.
four different directivity options, all of which are reversible by rotating the horn; different mounting options; different colors, black, white or any RAL color; connectivity options: Speakon or captive cable; and grille options: steel, fabric or foam.
The two compact subs have a low profile, sleek design, which enables them to be easily installed discretely in a wide range of locations, for example, within walls, staircases, under furniture, and more.
The ID24 benefits from highly cost-effective amplification opportunities. For example, 16 NEXO ID24 cabinets can be powered by one NXAMP4x1 amplifier and NEXO’s smallest TDController offering a host of features including ‘channel-by-channel’ preset selection and remote monitoring using the NeMo App (now available for Mac). EtherSound and Dante network compatibility is available as an option.
