Price shown is for a PAIR

The Orion-3.4, 3.5, 4.0 Kit is the definitive high end speaker design from Siegfried Linkwitz of Linkwitz Lab.

Madisound is offering the drivers for this system at a 10% discount off the regular price.

We only have the drivers available: not the plans, crossovers or cabinets. Please visit  TheOrionSpeakers.com and Linkwitz Lab website for this purchase information.

This kit includes:

4x Tweeters - Seas T25CF002

The Seas Excel T25CF-002, "MILENNIUM" is a 25mm soft dome tweeter with a novel Neodymium based magnet system. It is the tweeter of choice for those who seek extremely precise and realistic sound reproduction combined with a relatively low crossover frequency.

2x Woofers - Seas W22EX001

The Seas Excel W22EX001 is a 22cm (8'') cone driver developed for use as a high fidelity woofer or woofer/midrange unit. The extremely stiff, yet light cone gives tremendous bass precision and midrange detail.

4x Subwoofers - Seas L26RO4Y

The Seas L26RO4Y is a 10" aluminum cone super long stroke subwoofer with large roll surround and 4-layer voice coil.

The L26RO4Y subwoofer. Developed in cooperation with Linkwitz Laboratories in Corte Medera, California, the L26RO4Y will see its first application in two new versions of the highly acclaimed Linkwitz ORION open baffle loudspeaker. The L26RO4Y substantially improves the ORION's bass performance and dynamic capabilities. We at SEAS are also very proud that the ORION loudspeaker now uses all SEAS drive units!

There is more to a woofer than its published TS small signal parameters and X-max, derived from mechanical measurements. In the Orion's open baffle, a woofer operates in the large signal domain; and its distortion, dynamic stability and limiting behavior determine the sound. An open baffle is the most demanding and difficult environment for a long throw woofer. --Mr. Siegfried Linkwitz,

To meet these stringent demands, the L26RO4Y subwoofer builds upon the already excellent chassis, magnet system, cone, and surround of our L26ROY. An all new FEA designed spider and 4 layer voice coil wound on a stiff glass fibre former have been employed, resulting in a driver with ultra long throw, very low distortion, and extremely stable mechanical operation under all conditions; including open baffle systems. The low Qts and Fs are ideally suited for active open baffle bass systems, but the L26RO4Y can also produce excellent results in enclosure based subwoofer and multi-way systems.

Orion 4 Madisound/Wood Artistry
The most important thing I can say is that this is the best loudspeaker I have ever heard in my life for reproducing natural acoustical music, regardless of price. It's not bad for electronic music either. Pretty universally excellent on rock, jazz, trance, etc., but especially good for classical music. The most natural, nonelectronic sounding human voice reproducer I've yet heard. It is dynamic, crystal clear, coherent, has thunderous and tight lows, and most especially captures in a most captivating fashion the space of a live performace in a way I've never heard from a non planar speaker, although much more dynamic and with a greater sense of ease than a planar can do. I speak being quite familiar with a variety of ribbon/planar magnetic, electrostatic, and other cone (including ceramic) speaker designs. I freaking love this speaker!
