French loudspeaker manufacturer has unveiled its smallest loudspeaker to date in the form of the new ID14, and its S108 partner sub bass.
The ID14 and S108 are the latest additions to the company’s ID Series of high-power compact cabinets.
Built entirely in France, the ID14 is a 5”-cubed Polyurethane enclosure containing a high-powered point source, capable of 116dB (peak) with a frequency response of 120Hz – 20kHz. Measuring 130mm x 130mm x 120mm, and weighing 1.7kg, the dual concentric design features a coaxial 4” LF driver with 1.3” voice coil, and a 1.4” diaphragm for the HF. ID14 is offered with two directivity options: a 100°x100° horn as standard, with an asymmetric alternative offering 90°x140° dispersion.
This speaker can be used standalone or in a distributed system, for front fill, infill or delays. Available in black, white or any RAL colour, the ID14 is well suited for installation applications, particularly for those stealing with architectural challenges in historic buildings, as well as those with a need for unobtrusive high-power performance, such as houses of worship, airports, hotels and the hospitality industry. The ID14 also has also been designed with immersive sound and FX applications in mind.
There are two versions of the ID14, which share the same acoustic components. The Installation version features an acoustic fabric fitted front grille, and there is a cable gland with two-core cable for audio input, offering IP55 protection. The Touring version of the ID14 uses a Magnelis steel grille, and the back plate holds two Speakon connectors.
The ID S108 is the purpose-designed companion sub bass cabinet for the ID14, and together they create an extremely compact high-power three-way system, ideal for small clubs and bars. Using a high efﬁciency bass-reﬂex design, the ID S108 features a long excursion 8″ Neodymium driver tuned to match the frequency response of the ID14. Like the ID14, the ID S108 is available in touring or installation versions, in black, white or custom colours on request.
A comprehensive range of accessories is available to allow use of the ID14 in a wide variety of applications. The ID14 has a dedicated U bracket, but it can also be installed on a microphone stand. On the rear of the speaker, two M6 inserts (73mm pitch) are ready for the NEXO accessories for wall-mount applications. Because ID14 has a fully symmetric design, there are no left or right versions: every unit in rental inventory can be the same.
The company’s recommended amplification solution is the NXAMP4x1Mk2 Powered TDController, which can power up to four ID14s per channel.
