This thread is intended for Triad speaker owners as well as to those interested in Triad. There is a lot of discussion these days about these speakers. My intent of this thread is for it to be used as a single source of info for those interested. Please feel free to share your thoughts, description of your setup, and most of all photos.

My company is a proud Triad dealer here in Oklahoma. We have a brand new showroom build-out currently going on right now. We'll have several in-wall, in-celing, and in-cabinet designed setups for our customers to come see and hear. Once completed we will begin sharing our showroom photos for those interested in seeing the Triad in a "real-time" ennvironment.

We welcome Mr. Scarpelli (a.k.a Triad Dude) to join us here. His helpful knowledge is always appreciated.

This thread is not intended to be Triad v. the world. Keep clean and civil folks.

So, let's get it started and have some fun!!

Glad you started this thread and hopefully it will become very active. I'm about 90-percent sure that Triad is my next speaker as I cant get the InRoom LCR Gold's off my mind... matching bases and red rosewood for me.

check your pm

Was nice chattin with ya Mike. I really think you are going down the right path with the GOLD LCR's. We'll have these in the main theater room, so take a drive and hear for yourself in a few weeks. As good as the LCR's are, I think what makes the system magical is the matching Gold Center. Nothing quite like having a fullrange capable center channel speaker.

Rosewood sure is purty too!

Well, I have some that are suitable for the Triad Museum. I have the System 7 models (probably about 15+ yrs new). I have 4 white and 2 black satellites and two white powered subs. The subs were rated 100w at the time and I think they're 10" (could be 12"). They may be old, but they still sound pretty good.

Great idea. It's about time. I'm a proud Triad custom dealer in the NY Metro (Tri-State) Area. I have a
Triad Platinum 7.3 Room:

InRoom Platinum LCR Left and Right
InRoom Platinum Center
OnWall Gold Surround x4
InRoom Platinum Power Sub x 2 (Run as Stereo Left and Right)
Def Tech Trinity Supercube (handles just the LFE track, not Triad obviously)

And I also have Triad InRoom Gold LCRs (left, right) and InRoom Gold center for demo'ing purposes.

I imagine there are several. Paul Scarpelli has yet to chime in here on this thread, however in due time he will. He's the Director of Sales and Marketing for Triad, so I would PM him to find a dealer near to you.

Hey, guys, thanks for starting the thread. I appreciate you Triad dealers who have stepped up to buy demo systems, especially when lots of speaker companies give stuff away to buy your hearts and minds. (I can't afford to GIVE away an 800 lb. Platinum system.)

I'll lurk and try to answer questions. To find a demo in the Bay Area, e-mail Mike Bradley at baycityav@aol.com and tell him I sent you. Triad is mostly in custom dealers, and we have little retail presence, so sometimes a demo is hard to find. If you have a problem, contact me.

And indulge me in a short explanation of Triad...

We manufacture a full line of custom speakers for what we believe to be the best possible sound with the best integration into the industrial design of the home. We have three, four, or even five versions of the same speaker so there's an appropriate speaker for any application. (The Bronze LCR, for example, has an InRoom, InCeiling, InWall, and OnWall version.) All our speakers are designed with a fully-engineered sealed enclosure for accurate and predictable results. Because we actually make stuff here, we offer custom paint matching for free, and we can even make pure custom solutions for problem installations. We only sell through authorized CEDIA-type dealers. We use lean manufacturing techniques, and we build to order, stocking no finished goods. We use all water-based finishes, no harsh solvents, we love our mothers, we've never kicked a dog, and we never exceed the legal speed limit.

So much emphasis has been placed lately on turning my HT demo room into a batcave so that my projector can obtain contrast levels in excess of 15,000:1 that my original ten 75 watt spot /flood ceiling lights are easily absorbed into a seemingly black hole. I also need to get a better digital camera. Sorry..... but you can barely make out the InRoom Platinum speakers. I will update this shortly especially the center channel which is without a doubt the most impressive center speaker I have ever heard.

Help with positioning Triad inwall Bronze surround.
My HT is 13.5 ft. wide and 22 ft. long with two rows of Berkline seating . First row( 3 seats) is 14 ft.away from a 119inch screen. Second row( 4 seats ) is on a 12 inch riser approx. 17 ft away from the screen. I am using Triad Bronze inwall /4LCR X 3 in the front, Triad Bronze inwall/4 surrounds and Triad inwall Silver Omni on the rear wall.
Where should I position the bronze surrounds? All the info I have looked into for speaker positioning just tells you the specs for one row of seating i.e either next and above your seating area or slightly behind it. I get conflicting answers from My triad dealer/installer and from Triad customer service.
Any help/ suggestions will be highly appreciated.

One would almost have to see the room in person to make an intelligent decision, but I won't let that stop me.

7.1 mandates the side surrounds be placed differently than surrounds in a 5.1 system...usually. I'd place the sides between the two rows on the side walls, equidistance from the ears of the listeners in the two rows. If you place them forward more, the front row won't get much surround from the back, and if you place them farther back than I'm suggesting, the back row will be wallowing in surround information.

If I've read your post correct, you are going with 9.1 configuration, correct?

Each has their preference. For me I usually place the surrounds slightly in front or behind the main seating positions.

or

Break your room up into thirds and place the surrounds at each breakpoint. They need to be slightly overhead while seated as well. Adjust your seating accordingly. This option we use 90% of the time with excellent results. There may be some who disagree, but it has worked for us with no complaints.

Paul, thank you for your response. I am going to try to post some pictures or diagram of my HT, to give you a better idea.
Currently the way I have it planned, is that the bronze inwall/4 surrounds( 1 pair ) are being integrated in a column that is being built on a riser, 12 inches up from the main floor and about 3 to 6 inches behind the back of the first row.
I did not understand how moving the surrounds forward would affect me getting surround from the back which would be a pair of Triad Silver Omni.
One more question to which I can't find a answer. What kind of dipole speakers are triads? They have a front firing front woofer(Not found on other dipole/bipole speakers) and 2 poly full range drivers. What exactly is the role of the front firing woofer and how does it affect speaker placement for multiple rows?
I apologize for the long post. Thanks in advance. Please help.

You are too kind. I know my picture blows. I just need to adjust my lighting situation; it was fine until I started turning it into a batcave. Those are Triad-made custom Platinum stands. In the next picture, I'll throw my InRoom GOLD LCRs next to the Platinums so everyone can see the difference.

The directional cues don't really come from the woofer; they come from the higher frequencies. In order to package a dipole so that it was compact and the inwall version fit between studs, we opted to go with a single woofer of higher quality than two smaller ones. Also, the cabinet volume won't support two woofers, plus you run into bass cancellation between the two drivers the lower the response goes. The dipole effect comes from the 3" drivers being out of phase with each other. BTW, those 3" drivers are nice ones, and they have good response from around 300 Hz up to over 14 kHz. Having the sound eminate from a single driver has it's advantages.

Your placement of a pair of surrounds in the column is fine, as long as the surrounds are placed at least slightly behind the first row of seating.

Hey, switch the flash on, and the picture will be fine. Batcaves are perfect for home theater, and guano works well at diffusing.

As big as the Gold LCRs are, they are dwarfed by the Platinums. It's like looking at a 737 next to a 747. I'd love to see that picture, too. Um...use a flash, my man...

Well, I'm now officially a Triad owner. Placed my money on the table today for some InRoom LCR Gold's with matching pedestals in red rosewood.

Black takes a week, a custom veneer like mine takes about a month. I can't wait for them to arrive. Maybe they will make it just in time for Christmas. We'll see.

Platinum front soundstage. Here's a better picture. More to come. I want to snap a shot of the Platinum next to the Gold. That will really show the size of this bad-ass speaker.

Mike, I wondered if you had taken the step. Let us know your thoughts when you get them and send us a pic of the custom finish. I think you'll enjoy these over your previous speakers.

The rosewood is stunning, and we use consecutive slices for the speakers, so the grain carries over from speaker to speaker. Also, the grain in the speaker continues down into the pedestal.

Nice front soundstage, indeed. You should be able to pin people to the back wall. The setup in your picture, including two Platinum PowerSubs, retails for $24,750, and our dealers keep nagging us for something more expensive, so we're working on InRoom Platinum Monitors, at $10,000 each. They'll most likely use seven Scan-Speak drivers and the R-29 tweeter, in a taller, narrower enclosure. There will be an inwall version for custom theater applications. (Inwalls suck, yanno...)

Great looking setup. I keep scouring magazines (Electronic House, Audio Video Interiors, etc.) for ideas on the design of my dedicated media room and it isn't often that they showcase a setup where the front speakers are In-Room.

Yes and within the same week I found a buyer for my Butler Audio 5150 amp and for not much more picked up a Parasound Halo A51 in mint condition. So, I'm very ready for the Triads to arrive.

They were ordered two weeks ago or so. I doubt they will be here by Christmas, but it sure would be nice.

Oh and since I wont be in my current home in a year or so, I didn't order any rears for this new system. I didn't want to cut into walls or ceiling. So, I picked up some brand new in box, Triad Omni Gold InRoom speakers for $227.00 on Ebay. I will use those on stands on each side of my sofa when I want to experience 5.1

You are going to love the Parasound Halo A51. I've yet to find a better amp for the money. When you take in account it's price, good looks, reliability, and warranty, it's pretty hard to beat.....Actually, I've quit looking. I even use that amp in my personal multi-channel music system and I can have just about anything on the market that I want. I have it mated with the Parasound Halo C1 controller and Dynaudio Confidence C1 monitors, Confidence center and IP24 in-ceiling speakers. Everyone knows 2-channel audio comes first for me, so it's no surprise why I went with the Dynaudio C1's, they are amazing!

We just did an exclusive Parasound Halo and Triad system. The complete Parasound and Triad package consisted of three dedicate 5.1 systems totalling $65k worth of product. Parasound Halo and Triad is a match made in heaven IMHO. We also did dual Triad Silver/Gold subs in these systems. Uh, the Triad subs packed a punch and played extremely tight and clean. I was very impressed, I'm going to add a Gold sub to my personal setup now.

Looking at installing Triad in-ceilings in my basement HT. Limited to in-ceilings due to existing wiring and WAF. Room is 15 X 18 (TV is mounted on 15 ft. side). Hoping to keep budget for 5 speakers (L/R/C/rears) near/under $3500. Any suggestions? Also, any suggestions on Triad dealers in the Twin Cities area? Thanks.
