Tool-Less Installation

Interchangeable, secure, elegant. This is the way in-ceiling loudspeakers are meant to be installed. The Director Collection utilizes our tool-less mounting system to provide secure installation in any ceiling. The spring-loaded clips with multiple points of contact ensure the weight is distributed more evenly than traditional dog-legs which protects your ceiling and decreases unwanted vibration transfer.

More Bass. Less Space.

A 6-inch loudspeaker simply cannot create the low end of an 8-inch. But most 8-inch loudspeakers require huge cut-outs. Not ours. Our 8-inch in-ceiling loudspeaker takes up the same space as our competitors’ 6-inch. So by choosing our 80 Series loudspeakers, you are able to effectively have more bass, in less space.

Compression Molded Woofer Baskets

Using time tested and true technique of compression molding, we are able to design and produce woofer baskets that are both highly stable and acoustically neutral. The end result is a reduction in distortion without coloration from the basket itself.

X-Wave Woofer Surround

When a speaker cone reaches its limit of movement and comes to a hard stop, unwanted waves ripple up and down the cone. This is much like a wave hitting the edge of a pool and reflecting back in the center of the water. Our X-Wave Woofer Surround progressively absorbs that impact, preventing unwanted sonic distortion and improving the overall fidelity of the loudspeaker.

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.


The uses of the Director D83DT/SUR do not end with single-speaker stereo capability. With the flip of a switch, the loudspeaker can convert it to a dedicated surround speaker in a bipole configuration. This enhances dispersion, perfect for real channels in surround sound systems.
