What is a GA10, and what does this statement have to do with Triad?

My initial reaction is that the Triad speakers are significantly inferior to my SVS MTS speakers from 2010. I perceive a gap, a serious weakness, in lower mid-range, the bass-boosted male voice range in superhero movies, and in the handoff to the subs. And the subs are powerful enough to vibrate the room but seem a bit rumbly, not quite as crisp as I'm used too from my SVS PC12+.


My initial reaction might be wildly premature, since the audio is isn't tuned yet. It's had a once over with Audyssey and some by-ear adjustments by the tech. And the control is limited since my electronics is just a Marantz 7702mkII, and no DSP or graphic EQ to really dial it in.

Also possible, my SVS kit in the living room maybe has always had a mid-range push and the bass is turned up too high without me realizing it. It's just Audyssey tuned and the sub set to my taste. Maybe I'm used to overly bass-enhanced sound and so a neutral system sounds weak in comparison.


What I'm looking for is whether I'm experiencing a known Triad weakness, that even the Silver 6 in-walls don't too mid-range well. If so, I'd start looking for a LCR swap sooner than later. Or, maybe Triads are fine but my amplifier settings need tuning. Maybe even adding a unplanned DSP to dial things in.

Thanks.

How far do you sit from the front speakers?

What are the crossovers set at?

How large is the room overalll?

Is it sealed with doors or open to the rest of the house?

If you turn up the volume of the subwoofers, does that help?

Where are the subwoofers located in the room?

What kind of room treatment do you have?
Also without speaker, not room response measurements, you will not know for sure, but I doubt the problem is the speakers not having a good anechoic measurement.

Maybe a good tradeoff for being able to aim the tweeter directly at the MLP tho...
The tweeter is centered, so it is a simple matter of adjusting delay in the crossover. Less crossover work than a tweeter that is beside the woofer. Makes the speaker more point source, which is a good thing.
