with removable black cloth grille.

sound in a perfectly spherical dispersion pattern, expanding the sweet spot to
encompass virtually the entire room.
OMNIGUIDE Design: The design
consists of a conically
shaped cylinder that is responsible for reflecting sound in a perfect 360 degree
pattern. This unique design guarantees the same tonal balance and dispersion
characteristics no matter how and where you mount the speakers.
- The speaker should be inverted
with grille facing downwards when it is mounted above 6 feet.
- The speaker should be mounted
normally with the grill facing up when it is mounted below 6 feet.
The OMD-C1 is designed for use as a Front or Rear center channel in Home Theater
surround sound applications.

voice matched with the following family of Mirage speakers - Mirage's OMD-28 or
OMD-15 floor standing speakers, Mirages OMD-5 bookshelf/satellite speakers and
Mirage's OMD-R rear surround speakers.

television without distortion.
Drivers: The drivers used in
the OMD-C1 are as follows:
The speaker features two 5.5" poly titanium deposit hybrid woofers with
ribbed elliptical rubber surrounds.
- Midrange: The OMD-C1 also
features a 4" poly titanium deposit hybrid midrange driver which directs the
sound into the OMNIGUIDE module of the speaker cabinet.
- Tweeter: Floating above
the midrange is a precisely angled cast aluminum OMNIGUIDE module that
houses the speaker's proprietary 1" PTH tweeter.
Enclosure: The sealed cabinet is made of very solid inert medium density fiberboard (MDF) which creates a solid,
flex-free cabinet which eliminates music altering distortion. The enclosure is
curved and completely sealed.
