More Bass For Your Space

The amount of air a driver can move is a function of its surface area and the length of its throw or excursion. Driving the lower frequencies in the Director D107 is a massive 10-inch woofer, which has 60% more surface area than its 8-inch counterpart. However, our engineers have been able to fit this driver into an assembly the size of our competitors 8-inch models. The result is a much smaller footprint with incredible bass. The woofer cone is made of injection-molded graphite which offers low mass while consistently holding the drivers shape.

Tri-Linear Configuration (TLC)

The Director 107 features three drivers in a unique linear alignment. This three-way design allows for broader frequency response and superior power handling. The 3-inch midrange is made of injection-molded graphite and the tweeter is produced from formed aluminum.

Director Technology

The ability to point or "direct" the sound toward a specific area in the room is critical when the speakers are mounted in the ceiling. The Director D107 features an assembly that can be adjusted to focus the sound from both the woofer and tweeter toward the listening area regardless of the speaker‘s position in the ceiling. This allows for the speakers to be used in many applications. One example is a home theater where the soundstage, relative to the screen, is crucial. The seating area can be off axis and still remain in the "sweet-spot."

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.

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.

Progressive Suspension

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.

Tool-Less Installation

It is important when installing a loudspeaker in the ceiling that it be stable and secure, restricting the vibration of the assembly and limiting transfer of energy into the wall. The revolutionary Tool-Less Installation (Patent #9591390) spreads the weight of the speaker over a larger area than typical mounting systems accomplishing this result with minimal effort. Spring-loaded clips also create more uniform pressure against the drywall eliminating any warping or distortion of the speaker baffle.

Magnetic Grille

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.

Let It Sink In

With an IPX6 rating, the entire Director Collection is at the top of the class. This rating ensures that these high-performance speakers are safe from the corrosion and internal damage commonly posed by exposure to ocean water and rainstorms--backed by a lifetime warranty.
