Crestron Launches Expanded Residential Audio Portfolio

Bringing next-level speaker options into any space in any home

Crestron Speakers made by Origin Acoustics Ultimate Series line

At CEDIA Expo, Crestron Electronics (Booth 16017) is expanding its robust audio portfolio with four new products, including three additions to the Crestron Speakers made by Origin Acoustics Ultimate Series line as well as an all-weather model of Crestron’s Saros Surface Mount Speakers. Built natively for the Crestron Home OS and for easy integration with custom systems, these new audio solutions pair seamlessly with Crestron’s DM NAX Audio-over-IP distribution platform and blend stylishly into any interior aesthetic.

Additions to Crestron Ultimate Series Speakers

Crestron first partnered with Origin Acoustics early in 2021 to bring next-level speaker options into any space in any home, so homeowners can select the speaker that best fits their lifestyle. Today’s announcement gives homeowners even more flexibility, as the Ultimate series now includes Crestron’s first Active Subwoofer, three-inch in-ceiling speaker SKUs, and a brand-new dual tweeter version of the Crestron Ultimate IC8 speakers.

The Crestron Ultimate Active Subwoofer made by Origin Acoustics delivers deep, impactful sound for extremely low frequencies, ideal for home theaters or game rooms. Constructed from premium carbon fiber materials with a unique design, this 10-inch 400W subwoofer can be mounted on its side, upright, or on the wall. Greater flexibility is enabled with the optional wireless extender kit, which allows the sub to sit up to 50 feet away from its content source.

Crestron’s Dual-Tweeter version of its Ultimate In-Ceiling eight-inch speakers (IC8)

With six- and eight-inch in-ceiling speaker options already available, Crestron’s new three-inch Ultimate In-Ceiling speaker (IC3) is designed to deliver equally impressive sound from a much smaller footprint. A 100-degree conical dispersion lets the two-way, full-range IC3 produce excellent sound coverage throughout the space and its all-weather rating means it can be installed indoors or out, in both residential and marine applications. Best for new builds so it can disappear into the design of the space, the form factor of the 200W IC3 pairs perfectly with Crestron’s LED light fixtures so owners can enjoy a uniform aesthetic.

Further rounding out Crestron’s in-ceiling options is the addition of the Dual-Tweeter version of the Ultimate In-Ceiling eight-inch speakers, which provides peak stereo output from a single speaker for demanding residential installations in small room applications like hallways and shower rooms. With weatherized construction, these solutions can also be installed for use in the patio, sauna, and swimming pool areas.

Crestron’s all-weather Saros Surface Mount speaker

Crestron’s Saros Surface Mount Speakers are now built with an all-weather IPX6-rated construction, ideal for outdoor applications including gardens, bathrooms, saunas, or on yacht decks. Major improvements have also been made to the mounting mechanism to provide total flexibility for application location. Available in six- and eight-inch SKUs, the 120W Saros Surface Mount Speakers support both LoZ and HiZ configurations and are engineered to achieve smooth, even coverage, high output, and clear, natural sound quality. These speakers are also designed to provide better frequency response as volume rises, making them perfect for entertaining in loud environments.

The Active Subwoofer will be available in Q1 2023, while the IC3, Dual Tweeter IC8, and weatherized Saros Surface Mount speakers will be available in late 2022.
