Looking at buying some orb audio speakers, but looking at other suggestions / reviews of orbs as well...


Currently we live in an apartment, so I don't need anything that will blow the neighbors away, but we won't be here forever so I also don't want something that will become useless after we move to a house in a few years or so.....

was thinking about either the:

Mod2 HTQuickPack $888




or the
Peoples Choice HT QuickPack $698



Living room where these would be placed is about 20x17

Going to need a receiver too, but haven't decided on that yet...


Currently I have some old Acoustic Research Bookshelf speakers and a center channel up front with no rears (AR HC5)... No rears now so we are looking to fix that...

Any ideas?

Budget maybe around 1200 or so...

I would aim for some speakers that have some bass - the sub has to do a lot of work.

HT Labs measurements >>

The L/R Mod2’s listening-window response (a five-point average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal and vertical responses) measures
+2.84/–2.04 decibels from 200 hertz to 10 kilohertz. The –3dB point is at 195 Hz, and the –6dB point is at 164 Hz. Impedance reaches a
minimum of 4.28 ohms at 617 Hz and a phase angle of –47.35 degrees at 241 Hz.
