Nexo previews ID loudspeaker install range at Prolight
Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt was the venue for the first view of Nexo’s family of loudspeakers, aimed primarily at the installation and commercial audio market.
The ID Series in being aimed at a range of install and touring applications.
ID (InSpace Definition) describes a new category of products, which are intended as problem-solvers for the toolkits of system designers and installers in all areas of the audio business.
Using a variety of mounting options, the ID24 compact cabinet can fit into almost any environment, whilst its ability to offer high SPL output with variable directivities enables it to 'beam' sound into difficult spaces.
At launch, the ID Series is comprised of three products:
• The ID24 full-range compact speaker, using twin 4-in drivers in a V formation in combination with an HF compression driver offering two preset directivity options.
• Complementing the ID24 are two striking low-profile powerful subs, ID S110 (1x10-in) and ID S210 (2x10-in).
Nexo has designated 3 different versions of the ID24: 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 user-adjustable horn, which can be rotated 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. As the ID24 can be mounted vertically or horizontally, this effectively gives the user four different directivity options in each cabinet.
The ID24i, tailored to the fixed installation environment with its termination in captive cable for secure connectivity with existing wiring, is available in Black or White with a matching fabric grille. It comes with threaded holes for compatibility with NEXO and popular third-party mounting hardware. It is all-weather IP55 rated.
For AV 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 3rd-party accessories, is available in black with a matching steel grille.
The unusual asymmetric shape of the ID24 cabinet measn it 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 pole-mount or clip onto truss. A purpose-designed accessory allows it to be precisely angled for stage front-fill applications. ID24 can even be used as a wedge monitor, when stood upright in the horizontal plane.
There are two subs in the ID Series, the S110 single 10-in and the S210 double 10-in have a design, which allows them to be installed in a wide range of locations - within walls, staircases, under furniture and more.
The 16x ID24 cabinets can be powered by a single NXAMP4x1, NEXO’s smallest powered TDController, which offers features including ‘channel-by-channel’ preset selection and remote monitoring using the NeMo app. EtherSound and Dante network compatibility is available as an option.
