OSD Audio Announces Trimless In-ceiling Speaker with Innovative Dual Voice Coil Design

The dual voice coil design gives installers and homeowners new options for adding great sound in small spaces such as bathrooms, narrow hallways or even a walk-in closets

Brea, Calif., May 31, 2012-OSD Audio, a Southern California-based manufacturer of whole-house audio products, announced the release of the ACEMK690TT Trimless, 6.5" Dual Voice Coil Summed mono stereo in-ceiling speaker. The dual voice coil design gives installers and homeowners new options for adding great sound in small spaces such as bathrooms, narrow hallways or even a walk-in closets. Once both voice coils are connected, the stereo signal is summed into a single mono stereo full range output.


"This is a perfect in-ceiling speaker for tight spaces but there's a lot more to the ACE690TT," notes Tim Leahy, General Manager and Product Specialist at OSD Audio. "Dual tweeters double the dispersion pattern of the high frequencies, plus we added a 4 or 8 ohm switch so the speaker can be converted to a single mono speaker and combined with a second ACEMK690TT so users have the option of having a stereo pair of speakers where only one of the voice coils is connected on each speaker." Leahy points out that this setup will dramatically increase coverage because the dual tweeters are active in both the single summed mono stereo speaker application or when used as a stereo pair and in both cases provides a broader dispersion pattern of high frequencies versus a speaker or speakers featuring a single tweeter.

OSD audio boasts other high-end features of their new top of the line MK Series ACE690TT, including a 6.5" spun Kevlar cone, dual 1-inch aluminum dome pivoting tweeters and an elaborate 18dB crossover network with audiophile-grade components. The ACEMK690TT also features a micro flange grille with a virtually invisible trim and seamless appearance. The ACE690TT in-ceiling speaker has an MSRP of $84.95.
