Origin Acoustics is using ISE to announce its new Performance Subwoofers, with the release of three new models of flood standing powered subwoofers.
The new collection features coated paper woofers, high-powered digital amplifiers, and a lightly textured and brushed finish, the Performance Subwoofer Collection from Origin Acoustics exceeds our previous builder-focused models in all facets.
These new subwoofers have been optimised to deliver more volume, lower frequencies, an attractive aesthetic – all sitting in a smaller cabinet. This collection benefits from an additional down-firing passive radiator, which provides extended bass frequencies and volume with no extra power consumption.
Available in 8, 10, and 12″ configurations, these models will be available from Origin Acoustics in March of 2020.
Also new from the manufacture is the new Commercial Loudspeaker Collection, made up of three categories: in-ceiling, pendant, and surface mount. Each of the three categories come with similar woofer and tweeter compliments. With polypropylene woofer sizes of five, six-and-a-half, and eight-inch, each model is sonically matched by their Dual Plain Stabilized Diaphragms (DPSDTM) tweeters.
Exclusive to Origin Acoustics, this tweeter is a precisely pinned silk dome that extends to a lower register without distortion. This allows the woofer to be more efficient and increases overall fidelity.
The all three styles are UL 1480 listed, this means they are suitable for installation into a commercial environment. The ceiling models feature a steel back can, front facing bass increasing reflex ports, a premium 70v transformer with 8-ohm bypass, and optional white or black paintable grilles. There is a stand-alone eight-inch subwoofer also available.
The pendants include unique cylindrical styling for two reasons: To bring them in line with modern light fixtures, and to add a bass-increasing passive radiator to the rear. This in turn has allowed a decrease in the overall size of the enclosure while improving low-end response. The pendant series also features an eight-inch subwoofer.
Origin has also released a pendant shell which converts any of six or eight-inch woofer models of its Director Collection loudspeakers to 70v. All the pendants are UL 1480 & UL 2239 listed, except the shell which only holds the latter.
The final series in this collection is the surface mounted, on-wall product. Featuring the same tap, driver, and tweeter compliments, these models feature a completely new patent-pending mounting system which allows for quick installation as well as two-axis positioning of the loudspeaker without changing the overall alignment of the loudspeaker.
Overall the three models round out a complete commercial collection ready for installation into any professional environment that requires premium audio quality and a modern aesthetic design.
