The NEAR IG8s2 employs advanced technologies and superior materials to deliver truly high-fidelity sound to everyone on the patio or deck, at every volume level, without fatigue. Best of all it can do that over many years, even decades, of full exposure to nasty weather, without yellowing, rusting or fading. The NEAR IG8s2 looks and sounds great when used as freestanding on-ground speaker, but performs best when partially buried; affording homeowners superior sound performance, lower visibility and greater theft security. The NEAR IG8s2 radiates sound evenly in a 360-degree pattern for more uniform coverage and better sound quality for every listener. As listeners move through and around the space they’ll be rewarded with uniform volume levels, perfect octaveto-octave tonal balance, and clear, natural vocals without the “shouty” quality of so many outdoor speakers.

The IG8s2 utilizes a Generation 2 MDT metal alloy woofer with dual voice coil UDIO technology along with the Magnetic Liquid Suspension (MLS) technology patented by New England Audio Resource in 1993. Our Titanium alloy tweeter supplies smooth, detailed “air” and life to the music. The result is exceptional sound quality that rivals audiophile-grade indoor speaker systems. Like other NEAR speakers, the IG8s2 is truly weatherproof, not just “weather-resistant,” and can be used totally exposed to the elements. The enclosure is color-through polymer that sheds moisture, dirt and chemicals. The pigments are embedded uniformly throughout the material so the sun won’t fade the color and garden tools won’t mar their looks.

Features

  • Purpose-built to be extremely durable in all weather conditions
  • Stylish design provides functional rigidity and extra security when buried
  • Generation 2 anodized metal alloy speaker cones (MDT) maintain specified performance over a broad range of temperatures (-20 to +160 degrees F; -29 - +71 C) for consistent sound quality in every season
  • UDIO (upside down/inside outside) driver employs inverted diaphragm driven by voice coils wound both inside and outside the former for extremely accurate linearity, even at extreme volume levels
  • Heavy-gauge epoxy-coated stainless steel grille withstands the rigors of outdoor living
  • MLS spiderless motor uses specially developed Ferrofluid to center the voice coil and eliminates the distortion generated by spiders
  • Sealed magnet gap locks out moisture and debris
  • 1” coincident mounted tweeter with 8” woofer positioned for optimum dispersion
  • LLDP (Linked Low-Density Polyethylene) colorthrough enclosures are acoustically inert and stand toughunder abuse and in extreme conditions
  • Advanced polymer cone surrounds resist UV rays, chlorine, fertilizer and salt spray
  • 70V multi-tap transformer standard for use with the NEAR 6XL power amplifier in 70V operation (can be by-passed for 8-ohm systems)
  • Signal connection via pre-terminated burial grade cable exiting the bottom of the speaker enclosure; the 8 conductor cable provides access to 70V taps or selects 8-ohm operation
  • Color: Kodiak Brown enclosure with matching grille
