Apologies for getting comic-book-guy on you, but air motion tweeters aren't ribbons. As I understand it, they work on a diff principal, enough that Heil got a patent on the design. Even Sandy admits they don't compare to plasma tweeters, but now that the patent has expired, they seem to be best-in-class, showing up in more and more designs.

As for the LFE, I would send one cable to each Triton One (yes, they are monstrous huge!!) since each can be calibrated separately by Audyssey.

Curious about the 7000s myself, but they seem highly recommended by the folks over at GoldenEar for Atmos deployments, so I assume they know more than I do

They would certainly know! If they recommend them, well, then they should work splendidly.

Non-standard RAIDs can recover deleted files. Anyone who says RAID protection is only for failed drives is lying.

The 3000 TL is a decade old design, so you're probably getting them at a great big discount. Price/performance will be tricky because of that.

I've never heard them, so I can only say the Tritons have over a decade of technological progress in materials and design, as well as a radically different tweeter. The rest you'll need to decide for yourself during auditions.

I have the Triton Two , Center XL, and a pair of def tech 8080st for surround, w/ Goldenear SS60C as a single rear in a approx 2,300 sq ft room used 95% for TV and movies, and was interested to hear what others with Triton Two use for subs - the GE website says the TT2 go down to 16Hz, and they definately add depth and punch that my SVS 20-39CS ported sub has - but not in the league of a dedicated sub -
Do you have a separate sub? If you have a sub anyway - why not get the Triton 7 (or 5's) instead?
With the Triton two - do you still see the benefit of an additional 2nd separate sub?

Only you can make that call, $2500 is a good chunk of change, does your system need upgrading elsewhere, or do you want to start with Triton 1s and build around them?

$2500 is WAY too much for BP3000.

I tried to use the LFE in on the Triton 2's. I could never get it right. So I run them full range, no LFE in. I then got a Force Field 5. Still needed more. So I ended up with a PSA XS30se . YMMV

I run a Power Sound Audio XS30 with my triton 2 set up.
It is placed at the back of my 2300 cubic foot room. Because it has dual 15 inch subs and Tom V says it can reach 7 hz, i opted out of 2 in the back of my room. The XS 30 more than handles the low stuff. What the Triton 2's do is "round out" the bass and give the sound in my room a nice smooth bass with no null that i can hear.

I have heard the Triton ones and they will shake your pant leg. If i ever get them, i really see no need for an additional sub. If you think about it the Triton ones are a great deal. Two subs of their stature would easily cost close to 2k, so you get a world renowned speaker with a great set of subs. Seems worth their asking price if one can afford them.

I think the 5's are going to sell very well, and your right if you have a good sub, the 5's are a great way to go!

I have a pair of Triton 7s for my L and R and a Supersat 60C for the Center. I have two subwoofers as well. What should I set the crossover to on the two types of speakers? Audyssey set the Triton 7s to 40Hz and the 60C to 100Hz. I usually change the front three to 80Hz manually - but was not sure what to do here.


Thanks!

Try the 7s at 60 or 80hz, and the 60C at 150hz. Let the subs handle the rest.

But experiment. Every room is different.

Use my current Towers @ 80hz and run my center @ 100hz but sometimes depending on the content will set the level higher or lower on the center channel... like my HSU to handle all the low Hz.
