Our take on the Mirage OMD-15 by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
Enjoy rich, dynamic sound from your music and movies with the OMD-15 from Mirage. This speaker borrows technologies from Mirage's award-winning top-of-the-line OMD-28 to create incredibly lifelike sound with an exceptionally wide soundstage, accurate imaging, and extraordinary depth. Its sound is well-balanced and natural, with deep, precise bass and smooth highs. The OMD-15's slim design lets you enjoy this great sound without sacrificing all of your floor space. A high-gloss finish enhances the speaker's stylish, hand-crafted cabinet.
Innovative technology for exceptionally open, lifelike sound
The key to this speaker's expansive, true-to-life sound is Mirage's exclusive Omnipolar® technology. Thanks to the saucer-shaped Omniguide mounted above its top drivers (see "Photos" tab above), the OMD-15 can disperse sound evenly in a 360° pattern. The result: a deeper, wider, taller soundstage that transforms your entire listening space into a "sweet spot."
Mirage's approach delivers a combination of direct and reflected sound that's more like what we hear in real life. It gives you easier, more flexible placement options too. You won't have to anchor yourself to one primary seat you'll experience warm, natural audio throughout the room. Plus, the OMD-15's high sensitivity rating means that you can crank up the volume without straining your amp.
High-performance cabinet design
The speaker's cabinet is divided into two sections. The top section includes a woofer and tweeter in a sealed chamber for accurate vocals, guitars, and other mid- to high-frequency sounds. This chamber also includes a passive radiator to enhance bass response and improve sensitivity. The lower section includes another woofer and a down-firing port. This ingenious design gives the OMD-15 excellent bass response despite its small footprint. Each woofer cone features a patented surround for greater strength and higher power handling.
Recommended center channel: OMD-C1.
Recommended surrounds: OMD-5.

Overview: The Mirage OMD-15 is a slender tower speaker that uses sophisticated driver technology, Mirage's exclusive OMNIPOLAR technology and elegant cabinet design to make the speaker ideal for the listener who has floor space for a full-range tower speaker. The speaker is available in a Gloss Rosewood and Gloss Black finish.
Note: The speaker is sold individually; not as a pair.
OMNIPOLAR Technology: This technology radiates 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.
Applications: The OMD-15 is a versatile tower speaker because it is full-range and can be used as a front main or surround speaker. You can use this speaker to help create a complete home theater speaker system or a dedicated 2-channel stereo setup.
Voice Matching: This speaker can be matched up with Mirage's OMD-C1 or OMD-C2 center channel, Mirage's OMD-28 floor standing speakers, Mirage's OMD-5 bookshelf/satellite speakers, and Mirage's OMD-R rear surround speakers to create a home theater speaker system.
Note: The Mirage OMND-S10 subwoofer for Home Theater application when using the OMD-15 speaker is recommended.
Video Shielded: The speaker is magnetically shielded so you can even place the towers close to your television without distortion.
Drivers: The drivers used in the OMD-15 are as follows and are separated into two cabinets (one sealed cabinet and one ported cabinet):
- Sealed Top Section:
- Tweeter: Floating above the midbass is a precisely angled cast aluminum OMNIGUIDE module that houses the speaker's proprietary 1" PTH tweeter.
- Midbass: The speaker features a 5.5" poly titanium deposit hybrid midbass driver located on top of the cabinet.
- Passive Radiator: The speaker also uses a 5.5" passive radiator midbass for added midrange which is mounted above the woofer and is front firing.
- Ported Bottom Section:
- Woofer: The speaker features a 5.5" poly titanium deposit hybrid woofer with a ribbed elliptical rubber surround mounted in the front of the cabinet and is front firing.
Enclosure: The 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 divided into two sections. The enclosure uses a sealed section at the top of the cabinet for the Tweeter, Midbass driver and Midbass passive radiator to provide clean and accurate reproduction of high and midrange frequencies. The bottom half of the cabinet uses a down firing port design used to help the front-firing subwoofer produce louder, lower frequencies.
Foot Print: The tower speaker is attached to a platform base which the down firing port fires against. The speaker comes supplied with spike feet if the OMD-15 tower speaker will be resting on carpet. The footprint of the speaker without the spikes measure 9.909" wide x 12.312" deep. The spike feet footprint measures 7.9375" deep x 7.25" wide1 x 5" wide2 (the base tapers front to back).
Speaker Terminals: The OMD-15 uses high quality gold-plated bi-ampable binding posts located on the rear of the speaker. The terminals will accept a wide range of connector type including spade lugs, banana plugs or pin type connectors. The versatile speaker terminals allow you to connect the OMD-15 speaker in the traditional method or Bi-Wire or Bi-Amplification method.
