Our take on the Mirage OMNICAN OC-55

by Chris Egner

Mirage's OMNICAN OC-55 in-ceiling speaker gives you crisp, clean sound from a concealed source and lets you save floor and shelf space. These versatile speakers are also tough enough for high-humidity applications such as bathrooms. And they're weather-resistant — add a pair to your screened-in porch or under the eaves of your house.

Mirage's Omnipolar® technology allows the OC-55 to disperse sound in a 360° pattern. You get a deeper, wider soundfield and smoother blending between speakers, so your entire listening space becomes a "sweet spot." You can also rotate the saucer-shaped Omniguide mounted above the drivers to fine-tune the sound for your listening space.

Mounting Options


Omnican Technology: The revolutionary Omincan OC-55 creates sound in a perfect 360-degree dispersion pattern. By utilizing the natural room reflections, this type of design radiates sound in a perfectly spherical dispersion pattern, expanding the sweet spot to encompass virtually the entire room.

OmniGuide Design: The OmniGuide is a proprietary component, which utilizes a perfectly angled dispersion saucer to create a large sound field. This technology creates natural sound and allows greater flexibility for speaker placement. The OmniGuide can rotate a maximum of 250° so you can fine-tune the sound in the listening area. The speaker is shipped with the OmniGuide in the center position, allowing you up to 125° rotation in either direction.

Drivers: The Omnican OC-55 utilizes the following drivers:

  • Woofers: The Omincan OC-55 contains a 5.5" titanium deposit polypropylene driver for low and midrange response. The woofer has a patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround for increased output and lower distortion.
  • Tweeters: The Omincan OC-55 contains a 1" PTH (Pure Titanium Hybrid) tweeter for precise high frequency response.

Back Boxes: The Omnican speakers include durable ABS back boxes to ensure uniform tonal balance, independent from the mounting position. The back boxes also provide protection from moisture and dust for the internal speaker components. The back box can be removed for space restricted installations.

Terminals: The speaker is equipped with gold-plated spring loaded binding posts. The posts can accept bare wire up to 12 gauge, pin connectors, and after removing the plastic caps, the posts can accept banana plugs (not dual banana plugs).

Mounting Options

Installation: Installation requires an 8.15" diameter hole and an 8.15" mounting depth. With the back box removed, the required installation depth is 2.87". The low-profile, dome-shaped grille of the Omincan OC-55 only protrudes approximately 1-3/4" beyond the ceiling.

Grille: The removable aluminum mesh grille is finished in a designer white to integrate easily into any decor. A grille removal tool is included.

Paintable: The grille and frame of the Omincan speaker can be painted to match the decor and design of your home.
