The NEAR has again rewritten the book on all-environment audio. The all-new NEAR IG Series employs refinements made to our legendary MDT and MLS technologies. In the allnew IG Series, our improved MDT and MLS technologies are coupled with our new UDIO (upside down/inside out) woofer design. UDIO is an inverted cone diaphragm woofer driven by voice coils wound both inside and outside the former. With UDIO, frequency linearity actually increases as signal level goes up. With the combination of these audiophile grade, weather-defying technologies, our IG Series achieves a new pinnacle of performance. All IG models use coaxial direct radiating drivers. We don’t need to cover them under a plate or cone and we don’t load them into a megaphone.
The NEAR IG Series speakers produce uniform (unreflected) dispersion for musicality and rely on the inverse square law for natural sound pressure roll-off for neighbor-friendly performance. The handsome yet rugged roto-molded LLDP (Linked Low-Density Polyethylene) enclosure is "color-through" so garden tools won’t harm its looks. A rigid and corrosion-proof stainless steel grille protects the drivers from damage. The real-world-proven weatherproof drivers are further protected by a hi-tech hydrophobic fabric which sheds water, dust, and debris. With NEAR IG Series speakers, your music will sound consistently clear and life-like year-in and year-out. The IG8 is attractive enough to install "free standing" and can be easily camouflaged among planters and pots. Its stylish design also provides functional rigidity and extra security when buried.
