About LX Speaker Factory
In order to better reflect all of the latest design innovations coming out of Linkwitz Labs, The Orion Speakers has rebranded as LX Speaker Factory, and can now be found at LXSpeakerFactory.com. Since 2004, we have been handcrafting beautiful hardwood versions of all of Siegfried Linkwitz’s speakers in our custom woodshop, located in Sonoma County, California.
All speakers are custom made, and customers can choose from a wide variety of hardwoods and finishes to match their design preferences. With our attention to detail and craftsmanship, we are proud to offer speakers that will look as good as they sound.
Alan discovered the joy of woodworking in high school woodshop, where he built his first set of cabinets. After experiencing the satisfaction of working with his hands to create a beautiful and functional piece of furniture, woodworking grew into one of his greatest passions. And just as Alan appreciates the beauty of wood’s natural grain patterns, he has grown to love the elegance of a high quality sound system.
In 2010, when Alan first heard the depth and richness of sound produced by Siegfried Linkwitz-designed speakers, he knew he had found an opportunity to merge his love of quality audio with his passion for woodworking, and has been dedicated to this mission ever since.
Don Naples has been a master craftsman and audiophile for over 50 years. He has extensive experience in crafting both wood and metal. Back in 2004, Don met Siegfried Linkwitz and heard the first version of the Orion speakers. He immediately sold his more expensive speaker system and built three pairs of the Orion speakers. From that point on, he has been building Linkwitz-designed speakers for customers all around the world.
In 2010, Don and Alan met at a Sonoma County Woodworkers’ Association meeting, where the two forged a friendship. Alan began working with Don building speakers and eventually took over the business. The two have been working together since.
