INSTALLATION OF SOLIDDRIVE
SD1G ON GLASS SURFACES
By utilizing these three basic installation steps,
you can install the SolidDrive SD1g on glass
surfaces.
Getting Started with SolidDrive
1.
Mount the SolidDrive SD1g onto the
glass surface.
The SolidDrive SD1g should be mounted in an
inconspicuous location of the window. Simply apply
the VHB pad that comes with the drive to the base of
the drive (the side opposite the label). Remove one side
of the protective layers from the VHB disc and apply
to the base of the SD1g. Then remove the other
protective layer and apply to glass surface with
moderate pressure.
When mounting the SolidDrive on the window, keep it
about 4 to 6 inches from the window frame. The
SolidDrive SD1g will have maximum output with at
least 20 square feet of window surface space (Figure 1).

What’s included with the SolidDrive SD1g
for installation on glass surfaces and what
is supplied by the installer
A SolidDrive SD1g consists of:
One (1) SolidDrive SD1g unit and attached wiring
harness with Eurostyle connector. *No additional
mounting materials are needed.

For glass: For installation on glass surfaces, the
SolidDrive SD1g comes with a VHB double-sided
adhesive disc.
STEP
2.
Make the electrical connections.
The SolidDrive SD1g can be installed on windows
to deliver sound to glass storefronts and glass
reception areas. The entire windowpane can become
a speaker delivering both interior and exterior sound
on single-pane glass. For double-pane glass, it is
important to mount the SolidDrive SD1g to the side
you wish to be audible.
Make the electrical connection between the SolidDrive
SD1g and the speaker cable using the Eurostyle
connector attached to the end of the SolidDrive SD1g
audio cable. The polarity of the wiring is clearly
indicated (Figure 2).
The SolidDrive mounted to glass works great for
these applications:

Equalize the SolidDrive SD1g sound
system.
The surface material plays a key role in the system’s
sound performance. To ensure an optimal listening
experience the installer MUST equalize the SolidDrive
SD1 system. Equalization is accomplished by using the
SolidDrive Glass Passive Equalization Module or using
the auto equalization feature available on some
receivers. *Additional information about the SolidDrive
Glass Passive Equalization Module can be found on
the back cover of this guide.
INSTALLATION NOW COMPLETE – ENJOY THE
SOLIDDRIVE SD1G SOUND SYSTEM
Now that you’ve completed the installation process
and equalization, you can enjoy the True Audio
Perfection of the Induction Dynamics SolidDrive
SD1g sound system.
HIGH OUTPUT INSTALLATIONS
For installations requiring high output or on very
large glass surfaces two Solid|Drive SD1g’s should be
used for each of the channels with the two SD1g’s
wired in series for each channel (Figure 3). When
mounting the SD1g on the glass surface, keep the
drives approximately 4-6 inches apart and around
4-6 inches from the window frame.
Figure 3. SolidDrive SD1g’s wired in series for high output installations
With the SolidDrive SD1g you can make any window
into a speaker and increase customer traffic,
direct in-store flow and deliver timely sales and
marketing messages.
