Call them for more info.

I thought I had read somewhere (on this forum) that Triad wasn't offering that service anymore. So you're saying they still are? That would be great.

The room is treated and the sound is spectacular. With that said, the tweeters in the surrounds are currently on the top, which when seated, are about 2-3 feet above my head. I may turn them around and see how it sounds with them on the bottom.

Oh, and if I do ever plan to go with ATMOS, then that's another "issue" as I can't go dipole with these surrounds.
Triad Gold and a pair of Cap 1400's in a 1,800 cu ft room!! You are not worried about headroom I imagine!!

If you're not running Atmos, I'd probably leave the surrounds oriented as is. In a standard 7.1 setup it's typical for the surrounds to be elevated above ear level, plus the dipole design means you're getting a diffuse sound field. I don't think it's worth the effort to flip them over. 2-3 feet above ear level is pretty much perfect for a 7.1 setup.

If you get them re-wired for bipole in order to go Atmos, then I'd flip them over to bring the tweeter closer to ear level. But honestly I wouldn't worry about it for now if it were me.

Good advice - thanks for the feedback. I agree, sans ATMOS for now, I think I will keep as is. Sounds really good and very diffuse, which is the goal.

And yes, in my room, I have plenty of headroom!

To all my friends here in the Triad thread,

I need two volunteers to help test out a new theater design system we are thinking of rolling out for Triad customers only. This is a completely different approach than the one I previously tried out several months ago.

If you have home theater plans (not handwritten) please contact me. I really would love to have your input on this.

Thanks so much!
