Innovations & Inventions
A loudspeaker is an elaborate puzzle with a myriad of pieces that must precisely fit together. When a piece of a particular quality simply doesn’t exist, we invent it. The Director Collection is filled with these innovations, from the patented tweeter design to the mounting system, from the unique woofer surround to the pivoting mid/tweeter assembly, these speakers sound better because they are better.
Shaking It Up
Creating deep dynamic bass requires moving lots of air. This means bigger drivers and typically bigger enclosures. The Origin team has developed a new design that allows us to fit an 8-inch woofer into a typical 6-inch baffle. Even more impressive we are able to fit a 10-inch woofer into a typical 8-inch baffle. What does this mean? It’s more bass in less space. The footprint in the ceiling is smaller and less obtrusive, but the sound they deliver must be heard to be believed.
By selecting specific materials we are constantly working to reduce the weight of the cone and yet keep it very rigid. This means the woofer can react very quickly for better detail but also remain in its desired shape. The Director Collection features woofer cones made of injection molded graphite, glass fiber or Kevlar®. The glass fiber and Kevlar are pre-stressed and mounted to a paper backing to insure the material will not lose its shape by stretching later while the cone is in motion.
