Origin Acoustics unveiled a wealth of new speaker products at a CEDIA 2018 press conference yesterday, including new subwoofers, new home theaters speakers, a marine loudspeaker collection, outdoor loudspeakers and Amazon Echo Dot wall-mount for its Valet System.
On the subwoofer front, Origin debuted the CSUB12 in-wall subwoofer that that fits in a standard stud bay and is installed in advance of the drywall, a discreet visual effect. The SUBDD12EQ is an addition to the Deep Subwoofer collection and features two active 12-inch woofers, both side mounted at a 90-degree angle to each other. They are driven by 1,200 watts of internal power.
The new architectural home theater system, the Marquee Collection, has several models to address various theater configurations. The Marquee front channel LCR’s boast a driver configuration with dual eight-inch woofers, dual five-inch midrange drivers and a single compression driver. The drivers are mounted in a steel baffle attached to a sealed, extruded aluminum enclosure. The enclosure can mount in or on the wall depending on the homeowner’s preference. Various grille options, from slatted wood to a more conventional perforated metal, are available.
