All loudspeakers in the Origin Acoustics Director Collection have earned the IPX6 Weatherproof rating, according to the company.
In order to pass the test, all models were sprayed with a high-pressure water hose for minutes on end and left to dry over an extended period of time. This test sends water at all angles through a 12.5-millimeter nozzle at a rate of 100 liters per minute, at a pressure of 100kN/m2 for three minutes from a distance of three meters. Each model must not fail or show water seepage.
According to the company, the IPX6 rating ensures that these high-performance speakers are safe from the corrosion and internal damage commonly posed by ocean water and rainstorms.
“Our products were designed to be a step above all contenders from day one,” said Jeremy Burkhardt, Origin CEO. ”Not only is the build quality superior, with vertically integrated parts designed specifically for each system, but the materials and our IPX6 weatherproof rating make owning Origin Acoustics the better value and choice.”
