One Systems is introducing the new all-weather 118IM-Sub subwoofer at this week’s InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas (booth C12108).
The new subwoofer incorporates the One Systems 18I/O 18-inch extended bass transducer with patented Inside/Only (I/O) voice coil design. Coverage is nearly 100 percent omnidirectional, and frequency response (+3 dB) is stated as 40 Hz – 120 Hz. The medium-density polyethylene enclosure is optimized for high UV exposure and harsh environments, measuring 23 x 20.1 x 20.7 inches.
All external rigging and suspension hardware, as well as the metal grille, are built using 304-grade stainless steel. The structural internal rigging is made with high-strength aluminum. The grille is a 3-layer “rain shield” design minimizes direct rain contact with the system’s transducers. The unique vent design also allows for easy moisture drainage from the interior of the enclosure.
The 118IM-Sub is designed to IEC 529 IP45 (solid object penetration to 1 mm (0.04 inches) and water jets from any direction). The enclosure and components are also designed to Mil Spec 810.
The input section consists of a 5-pin barrier strip. A weather cover is provided with an integral gland nut connector for outdoor applications. The gland nut is weather proof and is rated NEMA 6P (IP68). The connector will accommodate cable outside diameters from 7 mm to 12 mm (0.236 in to 0.472 in). The maximum diameter will accommodate most 2-conductor AWG 12 cable assemblies.
“The 118IM-Sub joins our line of copolymer based all-weather loudspeakers. This subwoofer provides systems integrators with extended low end in a very small footprint,” states One Systems president Doug MacCallum. “It has a tremendous output to size ratio and is optimized for long life in any environment – be it rain, snow, high humidity, high heat or indoors.”
