The Sound

Advanced Sonic Design

Improving the way you experience sound has been the focus of the Origin team for over three decades. Our speaker designers and engineers have over 100 years of collective experience, have won hundreds of awards for their efforts and have invented numerous patented technologies that have dramatically advanced the art of sound reproduction. The Composer Collection’s incredible performance is a direct result of their passion and commitment.

The Ultimate Combination

Although a loudspeaker is much more than the sum of its individual parts, the quality of those parts is still a critical component in the speaker’s design. Every single element of an Origin speaker is carefully chosen with one goal in mind, to create the most awe inspiring sonic impression possible.


Innovations and Inventions

A loudspeaker is an elaborate puzzle with a myriad of pieces that must precisely fit together. When a piece of a particular quality simply doesn’t exist, we invent it. The Composer Collection is filled with these innovations, from the patented tweeter design to the patented Spring-Lock™ Tool-less Mounting System (Patent #9366380), from the unique woofer surround to the sleek aspect ratio, these speakers sound better because they are better.


A Moving Experience

Having invented the in-wall speaker over three decades ago, our opportunity to revisit the process with a fresh perspective has paid true sonic dividends. Whether it is a dual woofer design or the use of a 4x8 single driver, the Composer Collection takes advantage of several technologies that result in more impact and greater overall performance.


Superior Materials

By selecting specific materials we are constantly working to reduce the weight of the cone and yet keep it very rigid. This means the woofer can react very quickly for better detail but also remain in its desired shape. The Composer Collection features woofer cones made of injection molded graphite, glass fiber or Kevlar®. The glass fiber and Kevlar are pre-stressed and mounted to a paper backing to insure the material will not lose its shape by stretching later while the cone is in motion.


Take Me Higher

Crystal clear high frequencies provide the nuances in a musical performance. Origin’s patented Dual Plane Stabilized Diaphragm or DPSD™ has an advanced suspension system that allows the tweeter to play louder, cleaner and with greater articulation, squeezing every last detail out of your recordings.


The Look

Aesthetic Integration

Making speakers to be heard and not seen has been our passion for decades. Once installed the only visible element is the grille that is magnetically attached to the speaker. The ultra-fine perforation pattern and incredibly thin outer bezel in the Composer Collection hide the speaker and blend discreetly into any décor leaving nothing but an almost imperceptible shadow.


Blending In

For an even closer aesthetic blend, Origin grilles are designed to be painted to match the ceiling or the walls. This further disguises the grilles and makes them a seamless part of the room.


Fitting In

Depending on room size, architectural features and performance requirements, the need for speakers in different shapes and sizes becomes quite necessary. With over 40 different choices in the Origin line there is a perfect option for every application regardless of the room or the interior design.



The Finish

Like They Belong

The fit and finish of Origin speakers are as clean and impressive as their sound quality. Once installed the speakers become a part of the environment where they disappear unless, of course, your pride of ownership moves you to point them out.

Sleek and Stylish

In our effort to make the Composer Collection an attractive addition to any room we have chosen to take full advantage of the Golden Rectangle. This ancient mathematical and artistic ratio has been used in timeless architecture, famous works of art and even the shape of books. By selecting and positioning specific drivers we are able to maintain this shape, which is undeniably pleasing to the eye.

Real World Installation

A unique and patented, spring loaded mounting system for in-wall installations secures the speakers in place and insures optimal sound reproduction regardless of the construction materials being used.


Composer C66

Rectangular In-Wall 2-Way Speaker With A 4x8 Glass Fiber Woofer And Exclusive DPSD™ Tweeter Technology and the patented SpringLock™ Tool-less Mounting System.

US Patent #9366380

One of the most popular models in the Origin line, the C66 is the perfect match for the person who is looking to fill their home with music that will impress anyone who walks through the door. Compact and powerful, the C66 is a blend of the finest materials fine tuned to deliver music and movie soundtracks with all the realism today’s listeners demand.



Dual Plane Stabilized Diaphragm (DPSD™)

A patented innovation that dramatically improves high-frequency performance, the DPSD™ radiator uses a unique suspension design that maintains the tweeters alignment throughout a larger frequency range. The suspension is attached at both the voice-coil and the peak of the dome allowing the driver to be crossed over at a much lower frequency. This results in improved dispersion and decreased distortion.


Going Low

The heart of the Composer C66 is a glass fiber woofer. Measuring 4"X 8" it has the same surface area as a 6 ½" round driver but it allows the overall footprint of the speaker to be much thinner and more attractive.


EQ Adjustments

Two switches on the baffle and behind the grille allow for fine-tuning of the system by attenuating bass and treble response. Placement of the speakers is often affected by the room layout and placement of the television and furniture. The ability to adjust the frequency response of each speaker to compensate for adjacent walls and other architectural features is very important.



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 center 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 Molded 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.


Spring Into Action

Securely mounting the speaker inside the wall is a necessity for full fidelity performance. The patented SpringLock™ mechanism in the Composer Collection clamps against the inside of the drywall creating uniform torque at each pressure point. This assures that the baffle will not warp and the integrity of the seal between the baffle and the drywall will remain constant. (Patent #9366380)


Magnetic Grille

A paintable, perforated grille with a thin bezel covers the entire speaker assembly and leaves a discreet finished appearance. Its magnetic attachment makes removing or replacing the grille fast and easy.
