Beauty and power—that rare combination that’s often applied in the world of sports, like in those old NFL Films clips when they refer to football as something like a savage ballet. In the audio world, beauty and power isn’t so oddly connected, but tends to be exclamated with high-end products, especially speakers.
Take Induction Dynamics’ new ID1-18 Tower Speaker, for example, which will be unveiled next month. At roughly 5 1/2-feet tall it is imposing, and with dual 18-inch subwoofers and a three-way design it is certainly booming.
It’s also available in rosewood gloss, maple satin, black satin and silver gloss and, oh by the way, grilles are available in 63 color options. The look’s certainly a thing of beauty to behold.
As for the three-way design, that features a 1.125-inch high-power soft dome tweeter, a 3-inch soft dome midrange, dual 8-inch woofers with Kevlar cones (and those 18-inch subs).
Beauty, power and high-performance for the discerning ear. Go to www.inductiondynamics.com for more, and check with authorized dealers for pricing.
