Outstanding Home Theater Performance And Value. The Mod1X Home Theater Speaker System is about performance, design and value. It features five of our newly designed Mod1X satellite speakers and our compact, powerful subONE subwoofer. These speakers make a statement with their sound as well is with their stylish design. And, as with all Orb Audio speaker systems, the Mod1X Home Theater Speaker System excels at both music and home theater, setting our speakers apart from many other satellite/subwoofer systems. All colors are in stock and ship within one business day.
The Mod1X Home Theater Speaker System delivers everything you want from a speaker system. It is the rare combination of amazing sound reproduction, small package and great price. First and foremost in any speaker purchase is sound quality, and this system produces brilliantly detailed imaging and full, rich sound that will please even the most discerning listener. Our new Mod1X satellites have even better high frequency and low midrange performance than our original, award-winning Mod1 speakers. And our new subONE subwoofer offers greater low bass performance than it's highly acclaimed predecessor, the Super Eight. It's also available with optional wireless connectivity and an optional real walnut veneer finish for the first time.
The Mod1X speaker system is also compact and stylish, featuring steel satellites that are the size of an orange and a high-perfromance, low-footprint subwoofer that outperforms many larger subwoofers. So, unlike most other speaker systems, they will fit in virtually almost any space and complement almost any decor. But be careful - you should not be fooled by the size of these speakers - they sound big. Very big. Most other speakers simply fail at being both small and producing good sound because you must use extremely expensive components to accomplish these competing design objectives. Orb Audio can afford to use these components because we do not spend your money on middlemen and intermediate markups. Instead, we sell direct to our clients and can design our speaker systems with components normally found only in much more expensive systems. It is a business model that makes a lot of sense and in the end you wind up with a system that costs no more than the generic box systems in all of the stores, yet performs better than all of the award winning domestic and international systems in a much higher price range.
Our Mod1X satellites are constructed with a new custom-designed, full-range 3" aluminum driver, set in our exclusive 4 3/16" steel sphere enclosure. They will work with all of the popular home theater receivers on the market rated up to 120-140 watts. If your receiver has more than 110 watts of power, basic care should be exercised. The Mod1X satellites feature gold-plated binding posts, high-power neodymium magnets and oxygen-free internal wire. They are assembled in the United States by skilled craftspeople with years of experience in electronics assembly.
You may upgrade any of your Mod1X satellites to Mod2X satellites for increased output and performance. A Mod2X is simply two Mod1X connected together. It is capable of louder output and also has a slightly extended frequency range.
In this package, you can upgrade your center channel speaker to a horizontal Mod2X speaker. This will enhance dialogue performance. If you would like to upgrade your front left and right speakers as well, look at our People's Choice system, which features upgraded Mod2X speakers for your three front speakers (left, center, right). Of course, the Mod1 sounds great as is, and since they are modular and upgradeable, you can upgrade one or all of them as your needs or budget changes in the future. We would also be happy to help you decide which system is best for you on the phone at 877-ORB-AUDIO (877-672-2834).
Additionally, if you have a 6 channel or 7 channel home theater system, you can purchase one or two additional satellites to fill out your system. Simply select the appropriate 6.1 or 7.1 upgrade from the drop down menu. The Mod1X Home Theater Speaker System is available in Metallic Black Gloss finish and Pearl White for a base price of $889, and you may select optional Hammered Earth, Hand Polished Steel , Hand Antiqued Copper or Hand Antiqued Bronze as well. These custom finishes are extremely labor intensive and would not even be possible if we were mass producing our speakers.

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. Forget the muddy, boomy bass that plagues many systems...these subs are clean, deep and accurate and are great for both music and movies.
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 almost all 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" 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 Uber Ten is purely for those that have the extra budget and desire for bass beyond what is considered normal to most people. If you have an especially large room, or just prefer your bass to be as deep as possible and don't mind the extra 1.5" of cabinet space, consider the Uber Ten. Otherwise, put it out of your mind and go with the subONE.
All home theater systems ship with free attractive matching steel desk stands.
