The People's Choice system features three of our exclusive Mod2 satellite speakers for your front left, center and right audio channels. You can customize the system with two, three or four Mod1 speakers for your rear channels, so the system is compatible with all 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 receivers. When you combine our custom Super Eight subwoofer with our Mod2 Satellites in each front channel, you achieve an imersive, high quality experience. The People's Choice Home Theater Speaker System can outperform most $3,000+ subwoofer/satellite systems and would have a base price of $2,500 if it were sold through traditional retail channels. That means you can have the highest expectations for sound quality, craftsmanship and service. This system also compares quite positively with many high quality floorstanding speakers, and many of our clients choose the Mod2 when they have to replace larger speakers due to space constraints or design considerations.
The People's Choice system is rated at over 115W power handling and is compatible with all home theater receivers. The Mod1 and Mod2 satellites feature gold 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. The Mod2 satellites are backed by a five year limited warranty, as well as a 30 day Satisfaction Guarantee. Please see our FAQ for further details and the links throughout this site. Our products are very high quality and labor intensive and we are quite proud of them.
Base Price: $1,098. Available in Gloss Black, Pearl White, Hand Polished Steel ($240 option), Hand Antiqued Copper ($240 option) and Hand Antiqued Bronze ($240 option). Like all Orb Audio systems, the Mod1 and Mod2 satellites in this system are Handmade In The USA. The Mod2 is also a perfect match with our optional HOSS designer floor stands, as shown to the right and below, so check them out. They are also compatible with our BOSS desk stands, which are a sturdy, beautiful way to present your Mod2 speakers. All speakers that are not being wall mounted or placed on BOSS or HOSS stands will receive a free basic steel desk stand.

You can configure your system with either of our custom designed audiophile subwoofers, the 200 watt Super Eight 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 Super Eight is acoustically matched to our Mod1 and Mod2 satellites and is included in all of our speaker systems. It is the right subwoofer for almost all of our customers, the perfect combination of performance, size and price. In fact, the Super Eight offers the highest possible performance out of a 12 inch cube and has received many rave reviews. It features a high quality 200 watt BASH hybrid amplifier that is conservatively rated to peak at over 400 watts, a super long-throw 8" woofer and a high-power magnet. The Super Eight provides output that is on par with most high quality subwoofers that have much larger cabinets and drivers, and it retains the musicality and tightness that is essential to success (yet lacking in many other systems).
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 BASH 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 Super Eight 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 made the Super Eight 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 Super Eight is the right subwoofer for at least 90% 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 our first love, the Super Eight.
All home theater systems ship with free attractive matching steel desk stands. Our HOSS floor stands are a great addition to our speaker systems, ultimately stylish and handcrafted in the United States from polished steel. Our new BOSS desk stands allow you to upgrade your desk stands to a stylish stainless steel design that is simply stunning (or you can use the desk stands that are included with the speakers and pictured throughout the site). Additionally, we have a variety of wall and ceiling mounts to attach our speakers in almost any situation, and be sure to check out our selection of speaker wire and audio/video cables, if you do not already have those items. For a limited time, speaker wire and audio video cables are on sale for very attractive prices.
