The new MOS36 is the latest addition to the minimum opening system line of products from Origin Acoustics.

An easy-to-install enclosure provides a very low-frequency response from a 6-inch fiberglass woofer, which ports around a 2-inch wide-band aluminum driver, providing a well-balanced sound from a design-centric 4-inch opening. 

The system includes 6 different finish options, in the square, round, and both flushed and surface mount options, along with the necessary spacers to adjust for various surface material thicknesses. 

The MOS36 is the latest in a series of products that address the interior design needs of today’s modern homes, while still delivering the high-performance sonic experience that customers desire.

Origin Acoustics Soundbars 2022

The new line of Origin Acoustics soundbars includes several unique features designed to address the cosmetic needs of consumers, along with the installation flexibility needed for today’s design-centric homes.

This allows you to adjust each end cap up to .75 inches, allowing for 1.5 inches of total adjustment. VesaMatch™ mounting design by Origin Acoustics provides easy installation.

There are also 2 LCR models available for on-wall home theater applications. All the soundbars utilize a mix of 3.5” fiberglass drivers along with 1-inch DPSD Silk dome tweeters wrapped in a beautiful aluminum cabinet for amazing sound and clarity.
