Upgrade Option - 6 room Multi-Room Audio with 6 pairs of speakers

Upgrade Option - 6 room Multi-Room Audio with 6 pairs of speakers
Regular price $7,949.60

This upgrade provides built in audio in 4 rooms or audio zones, controlled from the Smartlife App. This upgrade requires a Starter solution that includes the Smartlife App and Hub. 

We recommend the use of in-wall or in-ceiling speakers with each of your main TVs, as the speakers in the modern thin TV generally provide poor sound quality as there is no room for speakers. With recessed TVs or Samsung Frame TVs it is preferable to use in-ceiling or in-wall speakers rather than the visual weight of a separate soundbar. 

Flexible Listening: Listen to different sources at the same time at different volume levels throughout your home. Or set all zones to the same source and/or volume to enjoy your music all around your home.

The multi room audio system also enables you to enjoy good sound from your TVs -the integrated Multi Room Audio system ensures all sound comes through the in-ceiling speakers including when you are using the built in TV tuner or smart TV features.

  1. Lounge (in-ceiling, pair)
  2. Kitchen/ Dining (in-ceiling, pair)
  3. Family Room (in-ceiling, pair)
  4. Outdoors (box speaker, pair)

    Includes 3 pairs of Origin Acoustics in-ceiling speakers

    Director 6″ Series – 2-Way In-Ceiling Loudspeaker with a 6.5″ IMG Woofer, Pivoting Silk Tweeter and Tool-Less Installation.

    – PIVOTING TWEETER
    – TOOL-LESS INSTALLATION
    – IPX6 RATING

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    WEATHER PROOF
    With an IPX6 rating, the entire Director Collection is ready for installation into a wet environment. This rating ensures that your loudspeakers are safe from the corrosion and internal damage commonly posed by exposure to moisture. We believe in these so much, they’re back by a lifetime warranty.

    Includes 1 pair of Origin Acoustic Outdoor Speakers OS55B

    Season Outdoor Collection
    Taking entertainment outside is a balance of audible accuracy, dispersion and power. The Seasons On-wall Collection utilizes a unique driver configuration in a triangular
    cabinet with active woofers and tweeters firing forward and dual passive radiators firing off the back two sides. This means substantial bass and greater achievable
    volume levels to fill the yard, deck or pool area with impressive sound.

    EXCLUSIVE ENHANCEMENTS
    Our Seasons Outdoor Loudspeakers are best in class when it comes to audio and installation enhancing features. The rectangular driver and passive radiators on our OS6 series produce serious low-end while remaining aesthetically refined, and the 2-way design on our OS5 series offers realistic audio with an even smaller footprint.

    WEATHER PROOF IPX7 DESIGN
    All of our OS speakers enjoy an IPx7 rating, which means they could be submerged in up to three feet of water and still perform. So regardless of the amount of moisture in the air, these speakers will last.
