Two tweeters should be driven by two independant amplifiers, Do not parallel the tweeters and thus need to complicate the chipamps by paralleling them as well.
Similarly for two woofers. Use independant amps for each woofer.
That comes to 5 chipamps. Is 68W of maximum power into each of the 5 drivers sufficient for balanced peak SPL capability from the Orion drivers?

One 5channel amp dedicated to each Orion is far more likely to sound better than 12 or 16chipamps in a common chassis.

Personally I would build stereo amplifiers.
One stereo amp to the tweeter pair. One stereo amp to the woofer pair.
One monoblock to the Mid driver.
Total amp requirement for the 10driver Orions: 4 stereo amps and 2 monoblocks.
