Rectangular In-Wall 2-Way Speaker With A 4x8 Kevlar® Woofer And Exclusive DPSD™ Tweeter Technology
When the paradigm shift from cabinet speakers to in-wall speakers took place decades ago, this was the size for which everyone clamored. It was small enough to be discreet while being large enough to produce both full frequency and enough sound pressure to fill a room. The C60 Collection dramatically renews this tradition with advanced driver technology and a very attractive form factor. It is perfect in the bedroom or the bathroom and is great for both music and theater sound.
Dual Plane Stabilized Diaphragm (DPSD™)
A patented innovation that dramatically improves high-frequency performance, the DPSD™ radiator uses a unique suspension design that maintains the tweeters alignment throughout a larger frequency range. The suspension is attached at both the voice-coil and the peak of the dome allowing the driver to be crossed over at a much lower frequency. This results in improved dispersion and decreased distortion.
The heart of the Composer C68 is the bass section featuring a Kevlar® woofer that creates the sonic foundation. Measuring 4"X 8" it has the same surface area as a 6 ½" round driver but it allows the overall footprint of the speaker to be much thinner and more attractive.
Two switches on the baffle and behind the grille allow for fine-tuning of the system by attenuating bass and treble response. Placement of the speakers is often affected by the room layout and placement of the television and furniture. The ability to adjust the frequency response of each speaker to compensate for adjacent walls and other architectural features is very important.
X-Wave Woofer Surround
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.
Compression Molded Woofer Baskets
Utilizing the latest techniques and materials in plastic fabrication, Origin is able to create basket designs with superior stability and acoustic neutrality. These baskets combine with the driver suspension to increase linearity and improve overall performance.
Spring Into Action
Securely mounting the speaker inside the wall is a necessity for full fidelity performance. The unique SpringLock™ mechanism in the Composer Collection clamps against the inside of the drywall creating uniform torque at each pressure point. This assures that the baffle will not warp and the integrity of the seal between the baffle and the drywall will remain constant.
A paintable, perforated grille with a thin bezel covers the entire speaker assembly and leaves a discreet finished appearance. Its magnetic attachment makes removing or replacing the grille fast and easy.
