Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Orion® brand includes the return of XTR™ – a renowned series of products from Orion's past. XTR is designed for car audio enthusiasts demanding maximum performance at a midrange price. Orion's silver anniversary is all about returning to the glory days of the brand and XTR is a big part of Orion's championship legacy!

XTR HIGH PERFORMANCE AMPLIFIERS

Built on a reputation of quality and reliability, these amplifiers embody the true meaning of power and performance. Housed in a sleek heatsink, loaded with features and packing an extremely powerful punch for their size, XTR™ amplifiers stay true to the Orion® legacy of cracked windshields and punishing SPL!

XTR AMPLIFIER FEATURES AND BENEFITS
PRS POWER SUPPLY

MOSFET power devices are used in power supply deisng for their durability, current capacity and fast switching speed. Orion has developed the awesome PRS (Pulse Regulated Supply) Power Supply design. Unlike the PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) Power Supply used by other manufacturers, the proprietary PRS power supply utilizes a fixed duration square wave pulse that amplifies the current. The benefits of this are incredibly fast recovery time, low output impedance power supply, faster slew rate and less overall noise.

SYMMETRICAL LAYOUT

Clean/efficient layout that helps to reduce hot spots and noise due to clutter or un-equal grounds or heat transfer.

DIFFERENTIAL INPUTS

The audio input circuit allows for higher noise rejection and better audio coupling than standard audio input circuits. The integration of these inputs delivers an all around excellent listening experience.

SMALL FOOTPRINT

The XTR line offers consumers and installers freedom to explore new installation locations.

CUSTOM CONNECTORS

The new terminal connectors accept larger gauge wire, simplify the installation and improve the cosmetic look of the install. With less overall insertion loss, the overall power and performance of the system is improved.

EXTRUDED ALUMINUM HEAT SINK

Extruded aluminum delivers solid aluminum heat sink for maximized performance.

DIFFERENTIAL INPUTS

These days it is much more likely that the consumer will be using the factory head unit with these amplifiers. To aid in the installation, we have equipped these amplifiers with high-level inputs that also include an Auto-Sense circuit. Orion's high-level inputs accept voltages from 1V to 10V from the head unit's speaker outputs. When more than 1V is detected on the speaker line, the amplifier will turn on. Once the voltage is gone for more than 30 seconds, the amplifier will turn off.

LINE-OUT

All Orion XTR amplifiers feature a balanced line out to allow easy connection of additional amplifiers to the audio system.

REMOTE BASS CONTROL

Connection of the optional HP-RB1 remote mountable bass control allows vairable adjustment of the bass control from the driver's seat. The HP-RB1 is only active when the crossover is set to low-pass. Excludes XTR2502 & XTR2504.

INFRASONIC FILTER

Aids in the elimination of unwanted noise or harmonics at very low frequency that may degrade the sound quality of a subwoofer and/or enclosure caused by distortion or over excursion from those unwanted noises or harmonics.

Matched outputs have less notch distortion and better sound quality. With symmetrical output designs, clipping the output creates an even order distortion (as opposed to an odd order distortion) if the outputs are not matched correctly. Even order distortion is much less offensive to human hearing. Thermal stability is improved as heat is dissipated from the devices more evenly.

XTR SUBWOOFERS

Here comes trouble! Orion® XTR™ subwoofers are back on the streets and they're ready to pound their mid-priced competition into the ground. Head-to-head, with power handling up to 300 watts RMS, this is not a fight – it's a massacre!

XTR SUBWOOFER FEATURES AND BENEFITS
CUSTOM TRIM RING

The XTR custom trim ring delivers a cleaner finished look for the installation.

DUAL COOLING

The dual cooling feature maximizes the subwoofers performance. Better heat dispertion.

TINSEL LEAD

Tinsel leads are the number one failure mode of subwoofers. There are various ways to attach the tinsel leads, the first is just to arc them from the terminal to the cone, the leads have the potential to either break or short together. Another is to weave them into the spider, this method prevents them from shorting together, but causes the leads to stretch as the spider moves, resulting in breakage. XTR subwoofers feature a loop-stitch method that loops the lead over the rolls in the spider and then secures the lead in the valleys of spider with a stitch. This keeps the leads free of tension, but secure during peak excursion.

X-VENTING

Heat is the root of all evil. To relieve as much heat as possible, XTR subwoofers feature X-venting on the voice coil former and the neck of the cone underneath the dust cap. Both of these vent areas aid in removing heat from the motor assembly of the driver. This improves both the peak power handling and extends the overall life of the driver.

XTR COAXIAL SPEAKERS

The new XTR™ Series coaxial speakers offer the renowned Orion® performance in easy to install standard frame sizes and feature 3 ohm voice coils for getting the most out of your head unit or amplifier. The ceramic dome tweeters can be angled up to 15% on a 360° swivel.

XTR COAXIAL SPEAKERS FEATURES AND BENEFITS
POSITIONABLE SILF SOFT DOME TWEETERS

Dynamic control is key to maximizing your listening experience. XTR's positionable tweeters deliver superior sound with endless tuning possibilities.

VEHICLE FITMENT

As speakers are expected to work in a variety of applications, they are also expected to fit in a wide variety of vehicles. These days, the OE speaker systems are much more elaborate and have a wide range of sizes. Orion speakers are designed to fit the majority of these applications. Close attention is paid to these elements when designing the speakers. Key areas are mounting, magnet depth and diameter and the distance the tweeter protrudes from the front of the speaker to ensure the speaker fits properly.

MATERIALS

Even in the entry-level product, Orion cuts no corners when it coems to materials. The Orion speakers use a paper/fiber blended cone that is rigid yet lightweight to reproduce the music as accurately as possible. The Tweeter is a large metalized polymer to extend the high frequency response.

XTR COMPONENT SPEAKERS

The new XTR™ Series component speakers keep their cool when the music heats up, with grained and plated injection molded poly cones, silver-plated metal mesh and pivoting tweeters.
