230VAC Model (Long flash - Short flash)
4-1 = Fault from gate PCB while amp was working ok. May reset with power cycle

So I will call Tom in a few days and see what it might be. Pity, I get in moods to want to rock the foundation now and then...
Triax wasn't discontinued, just updated with new drivers. It's now called the T-18.

Did you unplug it from the wall for a couple minutes so it will reset?

@basshead81 - Yes. Talked with Tom and will send the amp back. I don't believe they keep this amp in stock so we'll see. Also, it was an extremely snug fit. I was about to remove a woofer to get to the back of it but after 2 days of tugging it finally came out.

I'm surprised no one took you up on your offer. The Cordovan Cherry Triax is beautiful! But then I'm biased.

Hello from Spain
I've seen their products and see that they subwoofers starting 15 .They have thought of a future do some 10 "subwoofer that can compete against SVS PB1000.
In Spain the best value in 10 " I see is the SVSfor 550 euros.
Sorry for my English ,translator use.


Greetings and thanks in advance.

It's already gone. Traded the enclosure for a standard finish at PSA a few weeks ago.

Err.... speaking of old, I should probably relay this. Tom and co got the amp repaired with their usual efficiency. However, I've been busy with life stuff (kid had some issues) and missed the delivery. Fedex returned it to PSA and it's been back with them ever since. Triax has been sitting in the corner since my post in 2015. I should probably try and get it shipped back here (again), if I knew where the screws were to put it back in

You have a non-working Triax just sitting in the corner? And all you need to get it up and running is an (I'm assuming, free) amp and some screws?

WTF???

I think we found that the other day during some inventory checks---we were like "where did this 6000w amp come from"? But we figured it out. Anyway, let us know when you're ready to rock and we'll have it on the way with a bunch of new screws too..

I'll have to. Since we bought a TV for the playroom noone wanted to watch movies in the basement. So it was just me for a movie every month... but I finally have the itch to get it setup again

Thanks Tom. Bet you guys still don't use a lot of those 220v amps? hehe I will be in touch in the next 2 weeks. Got the go ahead from my wife to paint the basement area flat black. Also got the go ahead to see what comes out at Cedia next month. Maybe a RS400 or RS500 in my future there. The home theater might see a revival!

Today was my first day with it.
Had some new furniture delivered and added a carpet pad under my area rug so I put it off until today.

Sounds great!
Crisp and clean bass is how I'd describe it.

Still tinkering a little and only listened to 2 channel music with 80Hz crossover on the Denon 4520.

I traded in a cordovan cherry enclosure this past summer at PSA. I couldn't stand that it didn't match my other 3. Check with Tom, they may still have it and can maybe piece together one for you.

Tom says the cabinet is to dinged up. Plus, it has no drivers. It does not use the S1500/3000 drivers.

Oh bummer. It was in great shape when I dropped it off.

I thought maybe they had parts left over to make another.

Wow, I didn't realize the Triax is 50 lbs heavier than the T18 while performance is quite similar.

I am in SoCal so it would have to be a local seller because shipping would be impossible.

The original Triax had some beefy 15's in it.

Tom said they'd charge close to the price of a new T18 to make and ship another even if your cabinet was pristine.!

I am not really surprised by that. The amp is basically the same and I know those drivers were expensive.
