Someone spending $10,000 on a projector & screen, $3000 on receiver & amp and $10,000 plus on just speakers isn't going to think twice about dropping $6000 on two subs.

It's all relative to what you consider expensive.

Don't tempt me... Ok what about a guy that spends 200 on speakers, 200 on a receiver, 500 on screen and 10,000 on LFE/SW rolleyes.gif

Some how I have a hard time believing you'd even consider buying a pair of $2000 subs.

Yes, that was my conclusion as well. Having a halo product like this will increase the credibility and the value of the company name.

It is also a Very Enticing subwoofer that appeals to a different crowd. A lot of posts on here are insulting to the people that consider this sub at a less than 3 grand price point to be a Good Value. smile.gif
You don't have to be a movie star to consider buying this sub. You just need understand Value to the person buying it. I'm sure Tom would appreciate not running his potential future customers off.

No not at all, there are plenty of people that wouldn't even spend what you have on your system. All I'm saying is that cost is only relavent to what you consider expensive.

Lots of people will think that $3 grand for a sub like the Triax is a great deal.

The Speakerpower amp that is used in the Triax lists for $1299. That leaves $1500 for the 3 15" high quality drivers and the massive cabinet it comes in.
This is a Good Value!!! http://www.speakerpower.net/index.html

Prime I would assume you have enough intelligence to realize I was joking with you. If you can't figure that out for yourself there's nothing I can do about that.

I don't know if you should use the word..intelligence..but yes, I figured you were joking. I didn't take offense to it. I was joking when I first questioned if you were calling me cheap.

It's all good. smile.gif

Okay, I didn't want you to think I was calling you cheap or putting down your system.

No, I wouldn't think that. I think I have a pretty good system for the money I was willing to put into it. I have a dedicated room for my home theater but it's a smaller room so the equipment I have takes care of it more than adequately.

This is the way I see it, I paid $2800 for a 230lb subwoofer that's putting out 4000 watts rms and has 3 massive 15in drivers, didn't have to pay tax and didn't have to pay shipping which just saved me over $500 and I'm getting even more out of it then what was originally advertised. This is my reason for wanting to try out a Triax, because of the deal eek.gif I've seen subs three times the price that don't even look like they stand a chance so the plan is to try one out and if it performs beyond what anything else will do at that price then it would be worth buying a 2nd one to smooth out the bass. The nice thing is that if one can't afford a 2nd Triax then atleast the first one will still give you nice results until you can afford a 2nd if needed. Sure we all spend plenty of $$$$ on our equipment but this sub is a steal for anyone looking to upgrade their current sub setup so I think this is a great deal and if my first Triax impresses me then I will surely get a 2nd one to go with it! After all if you've made it far enough to be putting a Triax in your setup then it wouldnt be a bad idea to get a 2nd one and be done with it, but like I said just one would still work great especially if placed in the ideal location of the HT room.

I can't wait to post a video of my Triax at work, ima show some damage being done to the house with some freq sweep video clips. Does anyone know some good clips I could use to demonstrate some of the Triaxs capabilities to put on my youtube video? Should I order something now so I can have it here on time or is there something on youtube already that would work?

All rooms are different as you know. Thinking back three rooms I had a big drop at around 25hz, the last room had a couple peaks, and the room I’m in now I’m flat down to 14hz using just one sub with no dsp or Eq. A room can do quite a hack job to a flat sub and it can also do just the opposite. It doesn’t always take 2-3 subs.

Yeah it's so crazy how different rooms can be, that's why ima go with one Triax for now and give it a good month or so to see how it works out. Man I can't wait to get it, I wonder how much longer until they're ready? It feels like when you were a kid the night before Christmas and it'd be hard to go to sleep cuz you were so anxious to rip open the presents, I need my package! Santa where are you, I need a Triax! eek.gif I've been good all year biggrin.gif

That would be one big dude for sure. Hey how bout a PR Triax? it would alleviate some of the size issue going vented. PR’s have to be placed a certain way in relation to the drivers though, not sure that could be done with three divers and it would take like 6 of them.. maybe it wouldn’t reduce the size thinking about it. I'm sure it's just fine the way it is, but who knows what Tom and Jim will do over the course of time??

I also get a good response from my single sub located in the front left corner. I sent my REW measurements to Tom and he agreed that a single sub solution was perfectly reasonable in my situation. I expect sometime later next week we should start getting Triax shipping notices! biggrin.gif

PR stands for passive radiator, it is essentially a speaker/driver with no motor structure that vents a enclosure like a port except in a different way. There is no such thing as a vented Triax though. It is a sealed design. I was only thinking out loud of different options to reduce the size if one were to go with a vented design Triax. cool.gif
