Origin Acoustics Explorer Collection: ‘No One is Making Yacht Speakers’

Pirates, however, could be a problem. That’s because the six new speakers install – and uninstall – with a flick of the wrist, just like Origin’s land-bound models. A bandit could make off with a good haul in no time.
Despite their simple snap-in installation, however, the speakers fit snug to the wall, with beveled bayonet rings for the wall that correspond to beveled rubber on the speakers.
“No water can get into the cavity,” says Nick Berry, VP business development for Origin.
And in the off chance that a droplet breaches the ring, the entire guts of the speakers are “covered in silicone,” Berry says.
In addition, the trim and grilles feature Origin’s Weather-X coating that resist rust and discoloration over a very long time.
Berry says that, while other companies might make pricey "marine-grade" speakers, "No one is making yacht speakers" like Origin.
