Near Unveils Weatherproof, In-Ground Outdoor Speakers

Near unveiled in-ground outdoor loudspeakers designed for residential installations.

The Near IG models can be partially buried in the ground and are omni-directional designed, which means sound is radiated evenly in a 360-degree pattern.

By partially burying the speakers, the packed earth ensures that the enclosure is resonance-free so all the acoustic energy is used to move the air rather than the enclosure walls.

Secondly, the ground acts as an infinite enclosure, which helps produce high-impact bass response.

There are three IG full-range models plus an optional in-ground 1-inch, in-ground subwoofer. All Near IG series full-range models employ Metal Diaphragm Technology woofers and inverted titanium dome tweeters.

The speakers are designed to withstand humidity, salt air, heat, cold and immersion durability standards.
