Prepare to enjoy an immersive, high quality home audio experience. We know you are taking a small leap of faith if you have not heard our speakers. This leap of faith will be well rewarded. By selling web-direct, we can use higher quality components than other companies and sell our speakers for a lower price. There really is no beating this business model, since your money is going into top quality components and craftsmanship, not middlemen and extensive ad campaigns. As we've said before, it's not rocket science, but it's still science. If you spend more on design and components, you can make a better sounding speaker. This is especially true of compact speakers and subwoofers, both of which require the highest quality components to achieve the big, full sound that you crave.
This system includes our Mod2X Home Theater speakers. These state of the art speakers utilize a new, advanced aluminum driver and such high end components as a neodymium magnet, gold plated binding posts and oxygen-free internal wire. You only need to consider whether you want our Mod4X center channelo upgrade. This transforms your Mod2X center channel (two Orbs) into a Mod4X (four Orbs). This is great for enhancing dialogue, but not necessary in most situations.
The Mod2X and Mod4X satellite speakers in the HT Express Elite are available in Metallic Black Gloss and Pearl White. Hand Polished Steel, Hand Antiqued Copper and Hand Antiqued Bronze finishes are available for an additional $300, and Hammered Earth is available for $150. This system is also available for $1,239 with Mod1 satellites (see the HT Express). The HT Express Elite is protected by our 30 Day Satisfaction Return Policy, so you can buy with confidence.

You can configure your system with one of our custom designed audiophile subwoofers, the 200 watt subONE and the 300 watt Uber Ten. Both subwoofers offer best in class performance and provide deep, accurate bass that will satisfy the most discerning listener. Like all Orb Audio products, our direct business model allows us to provide more for your money than almost any other brand, and both of these subwoofers outperform similar models that cost twice as much in stores. You will enjoy deep, accurate bass with either subwoofer, with none of the boomy, muddy sound that can ruin the experience.
The subONE is a new design to mark our 10th anniversary selling speakers. It is acoustically matched to our new Mod1X and Mod2X satellites and is included in most of our speaker systems. It is the right subwoofer for most of our customers, the perfect combination of performance, size and price. The subONE's critically acclaimed predessor, the Super Eight, won many rave reviews and was considered to achieve the most bass possible from such a compact enclosure. The subONE builds on this success and features even better low bass performance, enhanced thermal and signal overload protection circuits, and auto-voltage detection. It is also our first subwoofer available in furniture quality walnut veneer and our first subwoofer with a wireless option.
The subONE features a high quality 200 watt hybrid amplifier that is conservatively rated to peak at over 400 watts, a super high excursion 8" (200mm) woofer and a very high-power magnet. The subONE achieves the output usually reserved for much larger designs. Any company can get bass out of a big, ugly box. Most retail brands are forced to do it this way because their products are subject to multiple layers of markups and the products must have a low component cost. Our direct business model allows us to achieve fantastic performance from a smaller cabinet by spending more on the amplifier, driver and quality of the cabinet. We have the luxury of using better components and keeping our subwoofers as slim and stylish as our speakers. It's not rocket science, but it's still science.
The Uber Ten is our answer to your requests over the last few years for a "cost is no object" design. Of course, cost is always important, and we did not ignore it. However, our primary design criteria was high performance, and the Uber Ten will blow your socks off. It features a 300W hybrid amplifier, a proprietary high-excursion 10" (250mm) driver and it packs all of the punch of much bigger subwoofers. We made the cabinet 1 1/2 inches larger (12" on the subONE v. 13.5" on the Uber Ten) for maximum performance while still preserving the compact nature of all Orb products. Anyone can make a deep, high power subwoofer that is great at explosions and not much else, but that just didn't cut it for us. We weren't looking for a sub that was just louder and deeper, we also wanted it to retain the musicality, snappiness and accuracy that has made our products famous. To accomplish this, you basically need world class, audiophile components, and we designed every piece of the Uber Ten in this manner.
To be clear, though, the subONE is the right subwoofer for most of our customers. The fact that you are considering the HT Express Elite means you might also want to consider the Uber Ten. If you have a large room, prefer your bass to be as deep as possible, or just want "the best," you should consider the Uber Ten.
