Origin Acoustics and Amina Collaborate To Launch BLENDS
Origin Acoustics announced something it calls Boundaryless Listening Experience with Natural Depth Sound (BLENDS) invisible speakers at CEDIA 2023 (booth 2133). BLENDS is the collaboration between Origin Acoustics and Amina Technologies. The companies claim the BLENDS invisible speaker line is the first to feature a 60-minute UL fire-rated product in both 70V and 8ohm for commercial and residential installs and “perfectly sized” magnetic shims that attach to standard rear enclosures.
The BLENDS series consists of two new invisible loudspeakers—Edge 8STS and Edge 10STS, featuring larger tapered edge panels that install direct-to-stud, ready for prefilling, taping and filling. Amina says the new loudspeakers are different from Amina’s standard free-floating, fully skimmed-over products, which Amina’s own NA team will continue to promote for the high-end residential and commercial NA markets.
The Amina ALF100SM is a direct-to-stud mounted in-wall subwoofer that complements EDGE speakers by delivering bass while “blending into any home’s interior design” with concealed ports that allow for discrete installations. The BLENDS series will also include the brand-new Amina EDGEi/S200 product for applications that won’t allow a screw-to-stud installation.
