- Product Name: ID1.15, S1.8
- Manufacturer: Induction Dynamics

- First Impression: Pretty Cool
We remember when Induction Dynamics brought to mind only thoughts of hidden drivers that make drywall turn into a natural speaker amplifier. No more. In fact, this week Induction Dynamics introduced the ID1.15 and S1.8 loudspeakers. The two products
complete the company's "Super Loudspeaker" line, which also includes the ID1.18
tower loudspeakers and the C1.8 center loudspeaker.
The ID1.15 measures
62.5" in height and incorporates a 1.125" high-power soft dome tweeter, a 3"
soft dome midrange, an 8" woofer with Kevlar cone, and dual 15" subwoofers with
laminated cones. As with the larger ID1.18, the ID1.15 provides very high power
handling down to the lowest audible frequencies as well as exceptional sound
quality. In addition to its smaller size, the ID1.15 has a
rear-panel switch that allows the user to switch the crossover in or out of a
four-way speaker mode, enabling its use both in home theater and sound room
applications. Another patented feature in the ID1.15 is Induction Dynamics'
non-reflective grille frames, which eliminate frequency response distortion
caused by ordinary grilles' near-field reflections.
The S1.8 Super 8
3-Way loudspeaker, measuring 25" high, provides 8" woofers and a special high
power tweeter for left, right, side or rear channel home theater uses. Its high
power drivers match the drivers used in the other products in the Super
Loudspeaker series, ensuring optimal performance throughout the entire system.
An optional stand is available for the S1.8.
Also available as a
complement to the series is the A2 600 Watt subwoofer amplifier with patented
ID loudspeakers are available in standard
rosewood gloss, black satin and black gloss and can also be customized with
other woods and finishes to any buyer's wish. Grilles are available in 63
standard color options. Accessories include chrome finished, adjustable carpet

This snooping through patents is new to me and I find it really interesting.
How does this work? Do you actually have these speakers to review?
I should make an effort to audition something, anything.
What I'd really like even more is to open one of those 240 lb beasts up to see how they made it.
1. Their heavy weight is 240 lbs.
2. No price tags.
What was the price on the ones you saw Warp?
