OSD Audio's Black Series acoustic in-wall ceiling speakers include components that stand up to the test such as rigid polypropylene woofers for deep, rich bass and silk dome tweeters that fill in the critical high notes. Other high-end features include butyl rubber surrounds, not foam, which gives these in-ceiling speakers more excursion capability and allows for deeper bass with wider frequency response. Whether you’re planning a whole house audio system or a full-blown home theater, you’ll appreciate the sound and sleek appearance of these heavy hitters, and our team works closely with specialty integrators to make sure your audio experience is everything you expected and more.
Black Series round in-ceiling models offer a square grille option to match the aesthetic of rectangular architectural elements such as lighting fixtures and air registers. While other brands may offer that option, only Black Series does it right with a square mask that doesn’t “telegraph” the round speaker shadow behind the grille.
TPR Rubber Surround
For installs in tough environments such as indoor pool areas, outdoors under eaves and commercial settings, use BLACK Reference series models. Their woofer surrounds are fabricated from injection molded Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) – a copolymer that has superior damping characteristics and greater resistance to chemicals, UV and pollutants.
Reference and Performance speakers offer a high frequency contour switch with -3dB, 0 (flat) and +3 dB settings to match speaker performance to the room acoustics. Highly reflective “live” rooms benefit from a -3dB HF reduction while fabric-heavy “dead” rooms will sound better with tweeters boosted +3dB.
Black Series Reference and Performance models feature audiophile-grade crossover components including Mylar bypass capacitors to enhance high frequency extension for exceptional clarity and “air.” Shields* protect the components from debris and suffocating insulation while integrated air vents keep things cool.
Installers will appreciate the Black Series mounting system for its ease and robust construction. Black Series rotating clamps have brass inserts to prevent thread stripping. The stainless steel machine bolts are thread-strip and rust resistant. Rubber damping pads on the mounting clamps minimize the likelihood of sheetrock blowout and damp resonance, vibration and buzzing. Better installs, better sound, it’s all better with Black Series.
