Origin Acoustics D85 - Fully Pivoting 3-Way In Ceiling Speaker

The Origin Acoustics D85 in-ceiling speaker features a fully pivoting 8 Inch IMG woofer, a 4" IMG midrange driver, an aluminium dome tweeter and an ultra simple Zip-Clip mounting system. With the ability to ‘aim’ the sound at a particular listening area the D85’s are a superb choice for home cinema applications and rooms where the sound needs to be focussed on a ‘sweet spot’.

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. The impressive D85 features a long-throw 8-inch woofer, which has 80% more surface area than its 6-inch counterpart. However, Origin Acoustic's engineers have been able to fit this driver into an assembly the size of many a traditional 6-inch model, the result is a much smaller footprint with incredible, dynamic bass.

Tri-Linear Configuration

The D85 features three drivers in a unique linear alignment. This three-way design allows for broader frequency response and superior power handling. The 4-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 D85 features a mid-tweeter assembly that can be adjusted to focus the sound 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.
