Even one may be pushing the envelope, but I just like the look of huge drivers!
That said, I was also wondering what you use to mediate the auto on/off functionality? If I'm mot mistaken, I think that is the same amp in the T-18 that has only an on and off switch? I know there's a few ways other have recommended, but I was curious what you find works best. Also, does it ever create the power on "boom" sound with the method you use?
Sorry for all the questions.
And that veneer looks great - excellent choice!
Yep, just one Triax. Room volume is about 5500ft3 total. No problem with the questions....
1. Bass response: pretty good at my main listening position. Tom agrees my reasponse is good.....others here, not so much..lol..If you want a graph, I'll be happy to PM it to you, just let me know. Last time I posted it publicly, chaos insued.
Response across all seats in the room is not even, but that was never my goal since it's usually just one or two of us listening. Multiple subs would be needed if you want even coverage. Oh, and in my room/setup one Triax has more than enough power to make it feel like the room is about to blow apart when called for!
2. Crossover: 120hz. And no, localization is not an issue most of the time. Sometimes if the bass is real intense, there's a sense it's coming from that side of the room, but not obviously localized (I hope that made sense).
3. I use this remote trigger plug connected to my pre/pro (Anthem AVM20) to control on/off on the sub;
It works very well. There is no "boom" or "thump" when powering on (I do hear the relay click). There is a "thump" heard when powering off. This is not related to the remote trigger plug, it's the sub itself. Tom confirmed this is normal and harmless. I understand in later shipments the sub amp was tweaked to eliminate this.
I love the wood veneer finish (Corovan Cherry).
The standard finish is way too utilitarian for my tastes, especially since it's so visible in my living room.
I'm still thrilled with the performance of my Triax and still have no desire to replace it.
