Origin Acoustics D65 - Fully Pivoting 2-Way In Ceiling Speaker

The Origin Acoustics D65 in-ceiling speaker features a fully pivoting 6.5-Inch IMG Woofer, an aluminium tweeter and an ultra simple Zip-Clip mounting system. With the ability to ‘aim’ the sound at a particular listening area the D64’s are a superb choice for home cinema applications and rooms where the sound needs to be focussed on a ‘sweet spot’.

Bass Desires

Moving the maximum amount of air is the key to great bass reproduction. The woofer cone is made of injection-moulded graphite which offers low mass while consistently holding the driver’s shape.

Coaxial Configuration

Placing the tweeter directly in front of the woofer creates a true point source for uniform dispersion and frequency response. The tweeter is produced from formed aluminium.

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 D65 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 is particularly useful for home theatre systems where the soundstage, relative to the screen, is crucial.

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 centre 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.

Compression Moulded Woofer Baskets

Utilizing the latest techniques and materials in plastic fabrication, Origin is able to create basket designs with superior stability and acoustic neutrality. These baskets combine with the driver suspension to increase linearity and improve overall performance.

Zip-Clip Mounting System

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 Zip-Clip system 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.

EQ Adjustments

A switch on the speaker baffle, behind the grille, allows the installer to fine-tune the speaker’s performance through treble adjustment. This is essential as the speaker’s proximity to adjacent walls and soffits can dramatically affect frequency response.

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.
