One cool thing about Triad, they keep things honest with regard to pricing. If they can make it for a "low" price, they sell it that way. On the other hand, their top drawer stuff is NOT cheap -- but that reflects real costs to design and manufacture.

Just like their design philosophy is pretty no nonsense (and resembles how pro audio works), their pricing model is similarly devoid of gimmiks.

<sarcasm alert>

They would never make it as a consumer brand!

</sarcasm over>

Just ordered 3 iw silver 6 lcr's to replace my current front stage. These will be my first closed back in wall speakers so I'm curious for what I can possibly expect. Should I expect a boost in clarity or bass response? Any feedback will be appreciated as I'm excited to hear them.

They sound, from my experience, almost exactly the same as their in-room speaker counterparts. That's the beauty of Triad's in-wall designs-- the internal cabinet volume is about the same (that's why they're taller than most in-walls out there).

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Think of inwalls as having a natural baffle ie. The wall itself. Should have less issues with SBIR but acoustic treatments around room will have more of an impact.

I use six in-wall Silver LCR's in columns all stuffed with insulation..........the Silver LCR's sound great and are very dynamic.

Could someone please help me out with "SBIR?" Not sure what that is/means?

Boy I miss Paul.......

Great ambassador for Triad and is a straight shooter.

Anyhow, can someone tell me the sound signature difference between Silver and Bronze LCR......

I know sensitivity is 2db's/watt/meter.........eq can deal with that issue.

Well, my Triads came....
Got Triad in Room Silver LCR. C is done in horizontal configuration http://www.triadspeakers.com/products/irslcr.html
4 satellite inROom silver satillites http://www.triadspeakers.com/products/irssat.html

They were all pre drilled for mounting holes except the Center Channel. That one was customized for horizontal position with the tweeters and woofers moved. However, they did not pre drill as they were not made aware of how it was to be mounted. I spoke to them and they said it can be done at time of installation by me. I expressed concern for getting sawdust on the inside of speaker when I drill to make hole but they said that there was so much foam and insulation inside that thing that it will not make any difference. Of course, I hate the idea of drilling a hole myself into a brand new center channel. THoughts?

Anyways, they did not come with brackets and I am desperately searching for brackets for these speakers to mount to wall. I would prefer if they were tilting adjustable and pan adjustable.


DO you know of some good quality speaker brackets I can mount these on wall with. Folks at Triad mentioned Omnimounts but I am not sure why. Their weight limits will not hold these
The satellites weight 14lbs and the 3 fronts weigh 29 lbs each.

ROom is drywalled...
Any mounts/brackets come to mind?

The Silver LCRs have a better low end than the Bronze LCRs. They also have a smoother midrange.

I with I had a good answer. Definitely go with mounts that are much sturdier than you think you need, for safety.

And I would definitely let the dealer handle that mounting.

(Strange that they steered you to in room speakers when you wanted to mount things on the wall. The onwall versions make mounting easy and are dialed in to sound right, with the known SBIR factor, that the in room version will be challenged with.)
