The Director Collection

Details Matter

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”
 Charles Eames.

We live in the details. As the only speaker manufacturer solely dedicated to architectural audio, we’ve developed the Director Collection to exceed your requirements in a way no other company could. This collection was designed and voiced in Eugene, Oregon by the team who developed the first in-ceiling speakers over forty years ago. Each part is intentionally graceful, functional, and contributes to the larger whole. The advancements of the Director Collection are unique to Origin Acoustics, and can only be found in our products. The speakers install into smaller cut-outs. We’ve chosen to use premium materials like Kevlar or Glassfiber, to ensure long lasting clear audio. The unique tool-less installation system makes upgrading to whole home audio quick and easy. And our speakers have the most flexibility in aiming, ensuring you will always hear the audio as it was intended.

If you need more than basic, you need Origin Acoustics Director Collection.

Actual Installation

Origin Exclusives

Explore Our Technology

Dual Plane Stabilized Diaphragm™

This unique tweeter significantly enhances dispersion of high frequencies. The DPSD tweeter’s dual suspension design improves clarity, even at high volume.

Compression Molded Woofer Baskets

Using the most advanced materials and injection molding techniques, these baskets outperform typical stamped or cast baskets in their rigidity and integrate with the driver’s suspension to improve linear travel and low-frequency definition.

X-Wave Surround®

Our unique surround of the woofer absorbs unwanted resonance. This feature provides cleaner, punchier bass.

Tool-less Installation

14 different models fit into the 6 and 8 inch bayonet ring allowing for incredible variety in price and performance levels. Decisions don’t have to be made until the final installation. A ring and grille can hold the place for the speaker that then takes only seconds to install.

Tri-Linear Configuration®

The Tri-Linear Configuration stacks our DSPD tweeter and mid-range woofer together in an ultra-flexible pivoting pair. They crown the woofer, finishing the our speaker off beautifully.

Multi-Motion Pivot®

Our Tri-Linear Configuration allows our speakers to have the most pivot of any architectural speaker. Aim the sound from ceiling right to your listening area.
