Origin Acoustics Ambisonic Bollard Landscape Speakers Arrive for Spring 2024

Origin Acoustics Bollard landscape speakers are a solution to the challenge of producing bass from individual outdoor speakers in an attractive design aesthetic that could withstand the elements.

Origin Acoustics Ambisonic Bollard Hex landscape speakers in all colors and sizes

Origin Acoustics has announced upgrades for its Ambisonic Bollard landscape speaker solutions. The outdoor speaker line expands from two to three sizes, adds a new hexagonal design, along with tweeter upgrades across the range.

All Ambisonic Bollard landscape speakers now feature high-performance Ambisonic round planar magnetic ribbon tweeter technology for superior high frequency reproduction and clarity with lower distortion at higher power levels. 

As the curator of Design Centric Technology, Origin Acoustics is expanding its Ambisonic Bollard landscape series by adding a medium-sized solution to complete the series for a total of three sizes—Bollard 106 (large), Bollard 85 (medium), and Bollard 64 (small)—for powerful performances in any residential or commercial outdoor application.

The new Ambisonic Bollard 85 landscape speaker features an easy-to-bury 8” integrated subwoofer, and a 5 ¼” down-firing driver that disperses 360° sound patterns, and a 22” structure that extends out of the ground. The sub is ported out of the same opening as the mid/tweeter for cohesive sound.              

Each Ambisonic Bollard speaker has an adjustable impedance setting for 8Ω, along with 70v/100v. This allows for installation flexibility with nearly 200-800W of peak power handling, depending on the model, and the ability to play from 32Hz to 20kHz. Larger transformers/tap settings on the subwoofer deliver clean and deep bass at louder volumes.

Additionally, a modern new hexagonal aluminum speaker sleeve will eventually replace the existing round and square options in the series. Bollard speaker sleeves are designed to withstand harsh outdoor elements, including moisture, heat, and the sun while maintaining the aluminum’s natural beauty. The sleeve styles are available in three colors to complement any outdoor environment—Midnight Black, Stargazing Silver, and Champaign—and are backed by a five-year warranty. 

Price & Availability

The Origin Acoustic Ambisonic Bollard Landscape Speaker series will ship during Q2 2024. They will also be on demonstration at CEDIA 2023 (Origin Acoustics booth #2133). Pricing TBD.
