I have a similar setup to yours - I too have silver 6's for my fronts - powered by an XPA-5 which is also powering my 2 silver 4 surrounds and so far I have been really happy with the setup. I also have silver 4's for my rear speakers - those are powered by an XPA-200. Glad to hear you are enjoying your new setup! Have fun with it!

Thanks!

I'm sure I will look at either the bronze or silver surrounds at some point. Not sure if I'd be able to tell a difference between them as surrounds? And since my installation the other day with the silver 6's was in my already finished theater, I have no desire to outfit the space again with plastic sheeting like a Dexter murder scene.

I would see if Triad comes out with Atmos ready surrounds in the Silver line to go with your Silver fronts. If you don't want to re-do everything again, I would buy speakers for the future formats.

Dipoles do not work well with Atmos or any other object based format.

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

I'm not sure about atmos, meaning I think it will stick but I have no plans to implement it anytime soon. I am curious to see what Triad does do in regards to atmos, I'm sure they will come up with something but what type of premium will it command?

I don't know about a premium over their normal prices, they just have to design their in-wall, on-wall, and in-ceiling/on-ceiling surround speakers to meet Dolby's recommended dispersion and frequency response specs for Atmos. Cinema speaker companies have been doing that for a while now.

The only premium price might be the new in room speakers with built-in Atmos-enabled top firing speakers.

Yeah I know exactly what you mean there - I just went through that myself to put in the triads - the builder had installed some awful inwalls in some less than perfect locations - so we had to rip all of that out and redo it. What a mess! Don't want to relive that any time soon.

Hello,

I have 2 x Bronze/6 in-wall subwoofers currently running each off a RackAmp 350. I'm curious what value/benefits there may be, if any, or detriments to running the subs off an Emotiva XPA-2 instead? I'm already using XPA amps for my main 7 channels.

Thanks!

Why not stick with the amp they were designed to make use of, the one you are using, instead of a frankenstein approach?

I remember a while back some of you used some sort of screw with a rubber grommet to hold your triad in wall speakers into a frame. Anyone recall what those are called?

Hi all,

Not sure if this is normal but I've noticed a very faint humming coming from my new silver 6 in wall's with the system on but nothing playing. Is this common or is something off in my system? My old speakers did not have this hum so it makes me wonder why the Triads are doing this? I know the speakers are connected properly. Any help would be appreciated.

Not common, unless your old speakers were far less efficient (so you didn't hear it).

Efficiency is rated about the same but my old speakers were 8 ohm and these are 4 ohm, would that be it?

Wasn't that the guy who bought speakers on ebay or something, and made in wall boxes for them?

I remember someone who used RSIC DC04 clips to mount gold monitors to a baffle wall. Can't remember the user name but it was a professionally designed/built theater - I think Erskine group finished it up.
