Minimal Opening

Trying to win a bid for with a particular architect or interior designer? Even though most never look at their ceilings, every detail is important and a six- or eight-inch loudspeaker might just be too much for every homeowner. We created the minimal opening series just for that reason. To help you attract and keep high-end clients.

Integrated Aesthetics

The Director 50 Series matches most 5” & 6” recessed lighting fixtures. With an optional square grille and matching in-ceiling sub, these loudspeakers are perfect for times when the client demands both high-end aesthetics and premium audio quality.

DPSD™ Tweeter Technology

The patented Dual Plane Stabilized Diaphragm (DPSD™) Tweeter suspends the tweeter dome at multiple points, allowing it to be driven with more power for greater frequency response and wider dispersion.

Tool-Less Installation

Interchangeable, secure, elegant. This is the way in-ceiling loudspeakers are meant to be installed. The Director Minimal Opening Series utilizes our tool-less mounting system to provide a secure installation into any ceiling. You won’t need any tools once the hole is cut, just secure the ring and insert the loudspeaker. The spring-loaded clips and multiple points of contact ensure the weight is distributed more evenly than traditional dog-legs which eliminates warping of the baffle or drywall.

Premium Materials

Pre-stressed woven glass fiber woofers, compression molded baskets, X-Wave™ Rubber Surround, DPSD™, Tool-Less Installation, and Low Profile Grilles – The Director 50 Series has all of the elements of the award-winning Director Collection.


Origin Acoustics warrants this product from defect for a lifetime. For more information, read about our Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Single Speaker Stereo

Occasionally, there’s not enough space for two loudspeakers, but stereo is required. As music and movie lovers, we wanted to design a loudspeaker that doesn’t compromise with mono, regardless of constraints. The D57DT/SUR can produce stereo sound or simply improve the dispersion of a mono source. The choice is yours.
