“The ID1 is designed to create an immersive audio experience by incorporating the highest quality materials and innovative design,” says Michael Sipe, Vice President of U.S. Sales for MSE Audio. “The ID1 features an innovative toggle switch, which allows users to operate the ID1 as either a three-way plus subwoofer, ideal for home theater, or as a four-way stereo. Each Induction Dynamics speaker is hand-tuned to exact specifications to achieve precise sound in any home theater or stereo listening environment.”
The ID1 features MSE Audio’s patented crossover, S4X super 4th order, with almost 30-db-per-octave slopes at 80, 700 and 3800 Hz. The ID1 drivers include a 1.125-inch titanium, inverted-dome, phase-controlled tweeter, with a three-inch soft dome midrange and a 6.5-inch Kevlar woofer. The subwoofers incorporate a dual 10-inch, mica-graphite poly cone driver with a case frame and rubber surrounds. The ID1 features a three-way partition with a nominal impedance of eight ohms, 98-dB for one-watt, at one meter, with the subs boasting 4 ohms and 89 dB/1w/1m.
Measuring 56 inches tall, 11 inches wide and 10.5 inches deep, the ID1 is an impressive, floor-standing speaker, placing the dual 10-inch woofers with an upper drive spaced to alleviate floor-bounce resonances. Standard finishes include black gloss and black satin, with custom finishes also available. The new Made in USA speakers will be demonstrated by MSE Audio during CEDIA 2019 (September 11–14), in booth 3925.
