Video Creator’s Channel Audioholics
For Their Tenth Anniversary Or Body, Oh
has updated all their speakers. They sent us a couple different models to take a look at the Mod 1x and the mod 2x speakers as well as the new 200 watt sub-1 subwoofer. ORb is creating speakers that are small. They’re unique and they’re attractive the base of their designs 3 inch full range driver in a sealed design. It’s a carbon steel sphere about four inches in diameter.
Each Of These Little Modules Is Predictably Called
an orb and they’re mounted either solo or wired together in pairs or quartets to form their various speaker models prices start at $125 for a single or above the basic stand and multi-channel bundles are available. The nice part of the modular design is. You can also upgrade from the Mod 1x to a mod 2x or 4x just by buying the additional. There are six standard finishes, one for every aesthetic traditionalists are going to want the black modernist might prefer white or hand polished steel steampunks and Victorians would be drawn to a copper or bronze finish. I personally have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.
So I Was Very Happy For The Hammered
earth finish with a slight texture. There are modest up charges of about fifteen dollars per module for the hammered earth finish and thirty dollars per module for the steel copper and bronze finishes. The speakers come standard with a steel desktop stand in black or white. Though I was also able to audition the stainless steel boss desk stands. A variety of wall and floor mat mount stands are available.
The Steel Stand Was Able To
hold the speaker with confidence and also allowed you to bend it a little bit to. An angle adjustment The boss stands much sturdier, but don’t allow that angle adjustment. The ORb Sub-one is an 8-inch composite driver in a bottom ported cabinet that measures only 12 inches cubed. It’s quite small by ported subwoofer standards. It’s a available in a matte black finish for 399 but I took a look at the real walnut Veneer at 517 dollars.
Its Powered By A 200 Watt
hybrid digital amplifier has a standard volume and crossover knob a 180 and a 0 degree phase switch as well as an automatic sensing power mode. There’s also a wireless adapter available for $129 that plugs directly into the speaker, so you don’t need any additional power. I set up the Orbs in both a Near Field desktop environment as well as a number of configurations 2. 0 2. 1 5.
1 In A Large Room.
The Orbs Orbs feature nicer spring terminals which work great but I think that the limitation here is that with the mod 2x. For example, the jumper wires and the speaker wires have to both be plugged into the same speaker terminals, so I had to use 16 gauge wire or less. I think it might be smarter for order to take a look at smaller banana plug connectors, which would allow them to use rings or spades for the jumper wires and then allow you to use a thicker gauge cable with a banana wire or black banana plug for your main speaker wires. According to the published manufacturer’s specifications, the mod X1 is rated to 80 Hertz at plus or minus 3 UK.
However, To My Ears And My
measurement microphone they actually started to dip off a little closer to 120 Hertz. This isn’t a problem because I was able to cross over the subwoofer the sub-one at 150 Hertz for full range sound with no problems, but I would like to see or double-check their measurements. When listening to the mod X2. I noticed that placement was critical when you take to full-range drivers and you put them in close proximity to one another. You run the risk of getting comb filtering, which is where high frequency details dips off a little bit when you’re off access from the speaker, and this will happen if you take the speaker and set it lower on a media stand or a little bit higher like you would if you were going to use it for a surround sound speaker.
I Notice For Instance When I Was
listening to these in a stereo configuration that strummed acoustic guitar strings tended to lose. snap until I raised or lowered my head to get back at ear level with the speakers so be very careful with placement and also distance as the closer you are to these speakers the greater the angle and the greater the comb filtering effect. The mod X1. By contrast, had much better off access response and it was more tolerant of placement above or below ear level. Given that this single mod at 1x had enough power handling for my large room.
It Didnt Exhibit Any Comb Filtering Effects
it’s less expensive its higher impedance. It’s my all-around recommendation unless you absolutely need maximum power handling from the mod 2x. In listening, the orb was very smartly designed it reproduced the critical mid-range excellently cleanly at high volumes and this kept dialogue clear and present high frequencies weren’t exactly extended or Airy even in the near field, but this. again expected from a single driver design.
I Think The Orb Engineer Has Made Some
very good choices when looking for a speaker that was both small and it looked and sounded good. Meanwhile, the subwoofer sounded as good as any subwoofer. A reported design for its size would and I think that it works suitably low for music. I didn’t notice any port noise when watching movies with a lot of low frequency information.
While This Sub May Not Be A
room shaker. It won’t produce any unwanted distortion or port noise. It’s high frequency reproduction was suitable for the mod 1x and I was able to cross it over 150 Hertz. It’s not a game changer by any means, but I think that it is small solid and attractive which makes it the perfect companion for the stylish orb speakers typically you need to pay a significant premium.
- various speaker models prices start
- orb speakers typically need
- mod 1x mod 2x speakers
- price pretty affordable speakers
- mod 2x speakers new 200
For Non-Box-Shaped Speakers And Unique Finish
options orb is giving you both at a price that’s pretty affordable. These speakers prove that you can engineer conversation starter styling and good sound without having to take a second mortgage out on top of that they sound pretty good with the mod 2x is showing great mid-frequency, detail and power handling and the subwoofer being pretty competent for its size. While you can get better sound for the same money out of larger box to your speakers, you lose out on serious style points if you’ve been living without good sound because you think that you can’t afford speakers that both look and sound good I’d really recommend that you take a look at the orbs.
