Hi, More input: I'm glad Moraga is enjoying his Tritons-wait until they are fully run in. As he points out, you should do critical listening seated as the vertical dispersion is somewhat limited (on purpose) while the horizontal dispersion is quite wide.
One other point regarding high frequency response: believe me, I want to hear the beautiful shimmer of the cymbals too. But not the shimmer of a ringing tweeter added to the shimmer of the cymbals. There is a difference. And yes, a bright ringing tweeter can make a dead recording sound more live. But this artificial "Hi Fi Zing" is what we, and many other high end loudspeaker engineers have worked so hard to design out. One other point too: when you listen to speakers and try to relate it to live, make sure that you are relating it to natural live and not live sound reinforcement. There is a big difference. Even rock sounds much better, really a whole different world, when it is played at home loud but through a really good system, as opposed to at an arena.
Regarding 65Cobra427s questions/remarks about the grill cloth etc.: we have gone to a lot of trouble, in conjunction with a high end interior designer, to choose an acoustically transparent cloth, which was also very attractive in a subtle way. We do receive many compliments on the look and styling, but of course this is very personal. I am including part of an EMAIL that I received here in private messages as an example (I hope that this is OK with the sender) and it is very real: "in fact this is the first speaker my wife was really happy to order and not because of the way they sound but when I told her that these don't require separate subs and subs are built into speakers she was very happy and thrilled and she really liked the shape and look of Triton Twos and small footprint of SuperSat50C".
Regarding the set-up question from Klee: You can certainly add a separate sub on the LFE channel. As I have said,"bass is like horsepower, only you can decide what is right for you". You would set the left and right speakers to large and everything else to small. If your processor has a setting (I think some call it super bass or something like that) which sends some of the left and right channel bass to the sub, I would not use it. The bass on the Tritons is really quite excellent and is better than most separate subs, especially above 30 Hz and absolutely with music. If you add a separate sub for the LFE channel it will have to be a really good one in order to actually improve things as well as to not degrade the sound. Using it only on the LFE channel should minimize any negatives and hopefully give you what you are looking for. If you are getting Tritons, you might want to get them home, run them in and then decide if you really need a sub on the LFE channel. I am not familiar with the Rythmic subs so I really can't comment on them.
Regarding the question on the cabinet materials: yes,as Klh007 wrote, the SuperSat 50 is extruded aluminum, the SuperSat 3 is marble powder infused polymer and the Triton is high density MDF.
Finally, yes, Klh007 is very correct regarding the measurement anomalies that are encountered when you try and measure low frequency response (as I have said before). When you look at some of the measurements and try to relate it to what you or the reviewers hear, it just makes no sense. I don't know what to say. I and my engineers have had countless discussions with the good folks that try to measure these things and everyone walks away frustrated. In the end you have to trust your ears. Happy Listening Sandy
