IGS12 12" in-ground/on-ground subwoofer, 70V/8 Ohm
When added to a series of full-range IG series speakers the NEAR® IGS12 subwoofer adds the last half-octave of bass foundation that makes music really come alive. The IGS12 delivers unparalleled low-frequency performance via groundbreaking design. The IGS12 remains musical at any playback level and is capable of withstanding almost any abuse.
The NEAR® IGS subwoofers look and sound great when used as freestanding on-ground speakers that can be camouflaged among planters and pots. But we primarily designed them to be partially buried in the ground, affording homeowners superior sound performance, lower visibility and ultimate security.
The packed earth around the speaker dampens enclosure wall resonances to zero, allowing all of the woofer energy to go into moving air rather than the cabinet. In-ground installation also reinforces bass response by providing an infinite baffle to focus the sound waves. The IGS12's bass impact is visceral, precise and detailed.
