Proper Settings for the Triton Speakers
Hi, I have addressed this several times, but will again. The Tritons should be set as Large L and R with no crossover on them. If you are using them in a 5.1 system, even though previously we recommended just speaker wire, recently we found that when you set the processor to Large L and R and Sub No, even though the LFE information is fed into the L and R channels, it is attenuated and/or rolled off, so we now recommend using the LFE in: Large L and R (no crossover) Sub Yes. Set the bass level on the back of the Tritons to taste with 2 channel music. DO NOT use Double Bass, Bass Plus, Super Bass or whatever else your processor calls it when it feeds bass on 2 channel music to both the main channels and LFE, as this will result in boomy bass. Set the LFE channel to taste with movies. As I have mentioned, normally I prefer it without Audyssey or other correction systems. Also, and very important, I believe that Audyssey has some kind of dynamic expansion system or bass dynamic expansion system (I can't remember exactly what it is called) that results in very boomy sound. Apparently, once you engage Audyssey, even if you then turn Audyssey off, this expansion system is engaged unless you go in and specifically turn it off. Again, proper setting of the sub level on the back of the Triton is important. Often, on Twos, it may be 9 or 10 0'clock. I can't tell you how many times I have gone into a store where they or their customers were saying the Tritons had too much bass, only to find that the level on the back was too high. That is what the control is there for, and a big advantage with Tritons, as you do have this kind of control over the bass level.
Oh, I hope that all of you that have the new Ones are enjoying them. Response has been pretty phenomenal. And the bass, among other things, is quite special. They are shipping regularly now as we fill the pipeline. We are still running backordered, but catching up, and have good quantities coming throughout the fall. All the Best, Sandy
