Choosing the right drivers is part of the blend of art and technology that creates Origin Acoustics‘ signature sound. The woofer cone in the D61 is made of Poly Rubber which offers low mass and durability. The silk dome tweeter pivots allowing the installer to direct the critical high frequencies toward the listening area.
While in motion, frequencies between 700-1,400 Hz typically run up the cone of a woofer and are reflected back and forth from the center of the driver. This creates unwanted harmonic distortion. The X-Wave surround found in Origin woofers absorbs these frequencies reducing distortion and maintaining driver stability. This design also maximizes cone area by reducing the width of the surround.
As the driver travels to the limits of its excursion, the suspension, made up of the spider and the surround, becomes more rigid, exerting more control on the movement of the cone. The result is increased, clean power output throughout the driver‘s frequency range.
Using time tested and true technique of compression molding, we are able to design and produce woofer baskets that are both highly stable and acoustically neutral. The end result is a reduction in distortion without coloration from the basket itself.
A paintable, perforated grille with a micro bezel covers the entire speaker assembly and leaves a discreet finished appearance. Its magnetic attachment makes removing or replacing the grille fast and easy.
With an IPX6 rating, the entire Director Collection is ready for installation into a wet environment, just add an EX Grille. This rating ensures that your loudspeakers are safe from the corrosion and internal damage commonly posed by exposure to ocean water and rainstorms. We believe in these so much, they’re back by a lifetime warranty.
