NEAR All-Environment Speaker IG8s2M

Model IG8s2M - IG Series Outdoor Speaker

The IG8s2M features the Generation 2 Metal Diaphragm Technology cone that is lighter and stiffer than the original MDT cone. The result is a broadband 3dB increase in sensitivity and more than 4dB in the midrange - making the IG8s2M easier for amplifiers to drive and better sounding with more "open" midrange and greater vocal presence.

  • Purpose-built to be extremely durable in all weather conditions, mounted in-ground 
  • 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 out) driver employs 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 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
