AMPLIFYING AUDIO PERFECTION
Built to Perfection
HAND-CRAFTED IN THE USA FROM START TO FINISH
“Audio Perfection Realized™” is a promise. That’s why Induction
Dynamics products are (and always will be) engineered, assembled,
and finished by hand in the United States.
Induction Dynamics cabinets are built by skilled artisans in Lenexa,
Kansas. After woods are cut with a low-tolerance CNC machine, every
step is done exclusively by hand. Expert woodworkers assemble and
finish the cabinets using precision tools, handpicked veneers, and
automotive-quality paints.
After the cabinets are completed, skilled technicians carefully
assemble and install drivers and crossovers, with each component
tested to meet the industry’s toughest quality control standards. Upon
assembly, additional tests are conducted to ensure consistency and
uniformity between each and every speaker.
Wood veneer finishes are selected for the best, most consistent grain
patterns, while painted cabinets are sanded and painted with as
many as twelve coats to achieve the perfect depth and texture.
STRICT QUALITY CONTROL
HAND-SELECTED COMPONENTS
HAND-MADE CABINETS
While typical industry standards allow for as
much as 5-10% variance between electrical
components, Induction Dynamics standards
only allow for a stunning 0.3% variance.
Induction Dynamics’ engineers have tested
hundreds of high-end drivers and crossover
parts. Along the way, they’ve even patented
unique technologies to further improve these
world-class electronics.
Cabinets are assembled in a state of the art,
custom workshop in Lenexa, Kansas. Wood
veneers and paints are selected, applied, and
polished by hand, ensuring perfection.
ENGINEERING PERFECTION
Maximum Clarity
PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES OPTIMIZE DRIVER PERFORMANCE
S4X® Technology
Wide Angle® Technology
The name, Induction Dynamics, is derived from the patented S4X
Super 4th-Order Crossover network. The S4X inductively stacked
crossover coils not only take up half the space of traditional 4th
order crossovers, but also produce the industry’s steepest crossover
slopes. The unique design produces slopes in excess of 30 decibels
per octave, optimizing each driver’s performance both individually
and when interacting with the other drivers. The unique technologies
increase control over range, frequency response, phase, and
impedance.
Crossover frequencies are inherently problematic because sound
from two very different drivers must be added together harmoniously,
on and off axis. Typical crossovers are optimized on-axis, but allow
phase mis-alignment in the vertical off-axis response. Vertical phase
mis-alignment results in a loss of sound quality when standing up or
reclining.
The S4X crossovers are overbuilt with the highest quality electrical
components. Low saturation coils and low dissipation capacitors
are designed to handle high power levels without heat buildup,
ensuring consistent and reliable performance at any volume. Prior to
installation, each crossover is quality control tested to within a 0.3%
tolerance to ensure uniformity between individual speakers.
4
The patented Wide Angle Technology in the unique S4X crossover
has the capability to completely align phase between drivers. By
utilizing steep S4X slopes and Wide Angle Technology, the crossover
limits driver interaction and optimizes phase in the off-axis region,
generously widening the listening “sweet spot.”
Experience consistent audio perfection - regardless of whether you’re
sitting, lying down, or moving around the room.
PATENTED S4X® & WIDE ANGLE® TECHNOLOGIES
Virtually all high-end crossover designs utilize slopes between 12 and 24
dB per octave. The S4X produces slopes that are up to 250% steeper,
in excess of 30dB per octave. These steep crossover points improve
control of each driver’s frequency range and limit its interaction with
neighboring drivers, resulting in smoother frequency response.

EXPANDED SWEET SPOT
Most conventional speaker designs have a relatively small and narrow
“sweet spot” caused by inaccurate phase matching of the drivers. In
other words, they’re only able to sound their best within a very narrow
area. Sound quality can fluctuate drastically outside of this area.
Patented Wide Angle Phase Alignment circuitry provides precise
phase matching of the drivers, noticeably expanding the “sweet spot”
vertically. Listeners enjoy clear, undistorted sound regardless of their
vertical position.
SPEAKER STANDS/
IN-WALL MOUNTING FEATURES
Elevating Perfection
SPEAKER STANDS DELIVER STYLE AND VERSATILITY
Induction Dynamics speaker stands are designed from the ground
up to match any series. Built from the same high-quality materials as
the speaker cabinets, stands offer functionality and style for Induction
Dynamics bookshelf, center channel, and subwoofer models.
The most important function of a speaker stand is to raise the
speaker’s tweeter to ear level. Humans can easily pinpoint from where
higher frequencies (the kind a tweeter produces) originate. For music
and movie dialogue to sound accurate, speakers must be positioned
at the optimal height.
6
The ST1 is a single-post stand designed for bookshelf speakers and
center channels, while the ST2 is a heavy-duty, dual-post subwoofer
stand.
Why a subwoofer stand? Placing a sub on the floor can result in
uneven frequency response as sound waves reflect off walls, floors,
and furniture. Elevating the subwoofer will minimize the effect that
boundary loading creates and smooth out low frequency response
throughout the room.
AUDIOPHILE ELEGANCE AND FUNCTION
WIRES REMAIN HIDDEN
Induction Dynamics speaker stands add visual flair while positioning the
speakers at the optimal height for sound dispersion.
Every Induction Dynamics speaker stand incorporates a channel to run
wires to the speaker. The channel is on the back side, keeping wires
out of sight.
Unprecedented In-Wall Mounting
PATENTED HARDWARE PROTECTS YOUR WALLS
PATENTED STUD-GRABBERS™ ELIMINATE
STRESS ON DRYWALL
By attaching directly to studs, the patented Stud-Grabber™ system
eliminates stress on drywall while providing a much more solid
mounting. The Stud-Grabber system is designed to fit in between
standard 2x4 studs for easy installation.
PATENTED RUBBER SUSPENSION
ELIMINATES VIBRATION
Heavy-duty, one-piece aluminum boxes with patented rubber gasket
suspension decouples the baffle from the studs and drywall, thus
eliminating vibration.
DYNAMIC SPRING SUSPENSION FOR
IN-WALL SUBWOOFERS
The movement of heavy in-wall subwoofer drivers could potentially
overload the rubber suspension. To stiffen the suspension, Induction
Dynamics® developed and patented a spring suspension that
augments the rubber suspension.
GRILLE FABRICS/ FINISHES
Match more than Paint
CHOOSE FROM 63 STANDARD GRILLE FABRICS
All speakers come with a set of built-to-order grilles. An extensive
selection of 63 standard fabrics add a splash of color to your listening
room or blend in with walls, carpet, or furniture. Custom grille fabrics
are also available by request.
Far from ordinary, Induction Dynamics grilles are assembled by hand
and utilize a patented, non-reflective design that eliminates reflections
and distortion caused by traditional grille designs.

ID1 SERIES
HIGH & LOW SUBWOOFERS
The first thing you’re likely to notice about the ID1
is its unique subwoofer configuration – utilizing
a high and low subwoofer. Why this nontraditional approach? Even bass response.
Traditionally you’ll notice that as you walk
around a room, bass response fluctuates
widely - this is due to peaks and valleys
called room modes. When subwoofers
are located close together, they simply
reinforce each other’s modes.
The freestanding ID1’s utilize spaced
subwoofers to reduce the effect
of these room modes. When one
subwoofer experiences peaks or
cancellations, the other doesn’t.
This normalizes peaks and valleys,
dispersing bass evenly throughout
the entire room.
10
MIL-SPEC 3-WAY/ 4-WAY SWITCH
For extended bass response and greater sound pressure levels,
the ID1 can be bi-amplified with a dedicated subwoofer amplifier.
Although many loudspeakers feature simple bi-amp terminals for this
purpose, the ID1 provides further control.
For maximum versatility, the ID1 series features a defeatable low-end
crossover switch that turns the subwoofer crossover on and off. The
sealed high-current, 4-pole, cadmium plated switch gives the user
three possible configurations:
1) 4-Way Passive
Looking to simplify things? Attach the provided terminal straps and plug in your full-range amplifier to the bottom set of terminals.

2) Passive Bi-Wire
This configuration leaves the internal crossover engaged, while giving you independent subwoofer control for better bass and transients… No
external processing needed. Important: Make sure to remove the terminal straps in bi-wire mode!

3) Active Bi-Wire (Advanced)
To take full advantage of bi-amplification, the “3-way + subwoofer” configuration defeats the internal 80 Hz crossover completely.
Remember - you will need to apply an active high-pass filter to your main amp, and an active low-pass filter to your subwoofer amp. These
filters are typically included as part of the subwoofer crossover in a home theater reveiver or processor.

C SERIES
CENTER CHANNELS WITH UNMATCHED VOCAL CLARITY
The center channel is crucial to any surround sound system, as it’s the
speaker dedicated to the reproduction of front-and-center dialogue.
Induction Dynamics’ C Series produces crisp, clear dialogue and
special effects at any volume.
S4X® Crossovers optimize frequency response - music and dialogue
that dramatically changes pitch won’t fade in and out, but will rather
maintain its power as it seamlessly crosses over from one driver to
the next. Frequencies critical to human speech, like those that deliver
consonants “S” and “C,” sound as natural coming from the C Series
as they do in real life, ensuring your high-definition video has realistic
audio to match.
HEAR THE DIFFERENCE
The C Series offers a variety of models to match the ID1, S1, and S2
Series and delivers seamless audio reproduction that you’ve come to
18
expect from Induction Dynamics.

SW SERIES
SUBWOOFERS WITH TRANSPARENT, EFFORTLESS BASS
“Boomy” bass is so prevalent in the home theater world that many
listeners have never actually heard a properly-tuned subwoofer.
Listeners shouldn’t be able to identify a subwoofer’s location.
However, many subwoofers utilize designs that sacrifice linearity
and transparency for sheer output, resulting in a large peak at the
resonance frequency.
When coupled with an A2 or A3 amplifier (Page 24), the SW series
also takes advantage of a patented frequency-selective excursion
limiter. The excursion limiter allows the subwoofer to produce
ultra-low frequencies, but prevents the driver from moving outside
its linear operating range. The limiter is accoustically transparent,
operating only at specific frequencies, without audible switching.
By utilizing acoustic suspension enclosures, high-excursion
drivers, and a filter circuit to eliminate resonance peaks, Induction
Dynamics subwoofers produce clean, authoritiative bass
throughout the entire sub-bass range.
Like all Induction Dynamics speakers, the SW Series is available
in a variety of sizes and mounting configurations. Freestanding
models can also be elevated with the ST2 stand (Page 8).
Subwoofers are available in any desired finish with your choice of
63 standard grille cloths.
Patented peak excursion
limiter incorporates dynamic
compression to limit the driver’s
cone motion to its linear
operating range. The limiting
is accoustically transparent
because it operates only at the
specific frequencies of peak
excursion.
Oversized capacitors and a
toroidal transformer deliver extra
power over short periods of
time to accurately reproduce
high-level peaks in the source
material.
High-excursion, custom-made
driver is built into a die-cast
frame with an extra-large,
high-flux magnet to maximize
low-frequency response in a
small cabinet.
Filter circuit with high power
handling components eliminates
the resonance peak produced
by most subwoofers.

A SERIES
AMPLIFYING AUDIO PERFECTION
A Series amplifiers provide massive real-world continuous power
output, ultra-low noise and distortion, and built-in processing to
match your Induction Dynamics subwoofers.
Both the A2 and A3 utilize patented technology to reduce distortion
and protect your subwoofers from damage. A patented, frequencyselective excursion limiter prevents the subwoofer from bottoming
out.
For improved low end extension and increased sound pressure
levels, the ID1 Series is also built to take full advantage of the A Series
patented limiters and filters. The ID1’s bi-amp terminals and a unique
3/4-way switch (Page 13) allow both passive and active amplification
of the ID1’s powerful dual subwoofers.
MASSIVE LOW-END EXTENSION, LOW DISTORTION
Induction Dynamics amplifiers protect your subwoofers and eliminate
distortion by utilizing a patented frequency-selective excursion limiter.
22
This limiter allows the subwoofer to safely produce even the lowest
sub-bass frequencies without risk of moving outside its linear operating
range.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR INDUCTION DYNAMICS®
“The ID1’s magically disappear into whatever source
you put into them. They are, indeed, the time and space
machines I’ve always sought and are now my standard
against which all others must be compared.”
Hugh Mandeson,
The Audiophile Voice
“The overall sound is coherent, musically involving, and tempts
one to listen longer than planned. It was well balanced and
full range, even at low listening levels. The ID speakers are
solid, well-built with quality components, and the choice
of finishes should provide an appearance to blend with
most decors, whether in-wall or stand-mounted. This much
versatility would be hard to find in another speaker.”
James T. Frane,
The Audiophile Voice
“After listening to the Induction Dynamics ID1.18 we are,
frankly, in a state of shock. For quality, performance,
and price, these speakers are a rare value.”
Ross Wagner,
The Audiophile Voice
“Resolution was immediately obvious. With both male
and female voices, the S2s had a body and presence that
was natural and completely engaging... Even at higher
volumes, the upper frequencies are absolutely clean
and composed, and the midrange is silky smooth.”
“I found the ID S1.8Ts had such a full presentation side
to side, up and down, forwards and backwards, that I
felt like I could walk into their musical landscape.”
“The S1.8Ts presented not only a broad, detailed soundstage
but one that very much captured dimension.”
“The Induction Dynamics speakers are among my top picks
and raise the bar for audio and home theater systems.”
