Measuring 150mm wide x 215mm deep x the standard 1m high (39.0″ x 5.9″ x 8.5″) and weighing 15kg (33lbs), the ID84 uses eight 4 inch drivers and an array of dome tweeters on a curved baffle in a light-weight aluminium cabinet with a rigid steel spine. The choice of dome tweeters over a conventional HF compression driver results in particularly low levels of distortion and contributes to a ‘hi-fi’ performance that extends the ID84’s suitability well beyond the traditional column speaker role of voice reproduction into music applications. The ID84 achieves a frequency range of 90Hz to 20kHz with a peak SPL of 136dB. The unique directivity switch on the rear panel enables instant switching of vertical HF dispersion, and cabinets can be linked ‘end-to-end’ to create longer columns. Multiple rigging options and a comprehensive range of accessories make it easy to deploy the ID84 in a wide range of fixed installations and mobile applications.

The installation version (ID84-I) is IP54 rated for outdoor use and features a cloth covered grille. Speakers can be specified in custom RAL colours and use a cable gland with a 2-core cable for audio input.
