• ID14, the smallest loudspeaker in Nexo's history

    Despite constraining regulations on its production processes, NEXO has just unveiled a new point source speaker. The smallest loudspeaker design in the company’s 40-year history, the new ID14, and its S108 partner subbass, are the latest additions to the ID Series of high-power compact cabinets. Like the larger ID24, the ID14 is lightweight, versatile and weather-resistant.

    Made entirely in France, the ID14 is a tiny 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 (5.1"x5.1"x4.7"), and weighing in at 1.7kg (3.75lb), 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.

    It can be used standalone or in a distributed system, for front fill, infill or delays. Available in black, white or any RAL colour, ID14 will be of especial interest to the installation sector. It is a tool for those applications with a need for unobtrusive high-power performance, such as houses of worship, airports, hotels and the hospitality industry. The ID14 is also expected to prove popular for surround sound and FX applications for immersive audio.

    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 2-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 subbass cabinet for the ID14, and together they create an extremely compact high-power 3-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 precisely 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.

    There is also a range of accessories to allow use of the ID14 in a variety of applications. The ID14 has a dedicated U bracket (via two M6 inserts on the back), but it can also be installed on a microphone stand using one of the two built-in M10 threaded inserts.

    The recommended amplification solution is the NXAMP4x1Mk2 Powered TDController, which can power up to 4x ID14s per channel. A dedicated set-up for each directivity is available on the NXAMP, ensuring perfect coverage at any frequency. Additionally, the DTDAMP4x0.7, paired with a DTDcontroller, can power up to 2x ID14s per channel.

    Octaves, thirds of octaves and decades are divisions of the spectrum used in audio, since they work in the same way as the ear, increasing their width in Hertz as frequency increases, and decreasing it when frequency decreases. They are used for the definition of the width of filters, as well as for the spectral analysis.... Read more
