So i would say if music is your priority, go with the Tritons because they are designed with perfect cross over across the range and you don't need <30Hz usually. If you are more into movies, SS50 + sub may be a good way to go to get the extra low end. From the sound of it, Aon + sub may be the killer combo if you already have a sub you are happy with.
.

When I demo'd the GE's, I watched a bit of the 3rd Transformers movie. The guy assured me that there was not a sub connected to the system and the tritons were really rocking the room with all the rumbling explosions and action. kpump, go check 'em out if you can.

The stand looks awesome! I wish I could find some low profile mounts for the 50's. I would like to toe them in a bit, but I think they sound great. I just picked up my complete set from Deluxe AV in Naperville today. I have two 50's and a 50c for the front and 4 sat 3's for surround. And I picked up another 50c for the family room set up, and now I am waiting for Sandy to release the inwall's so I can get 4 of those for the family room too. I really like the sound of these speakers for music and movies. Still want to give them some more time to break in, but I would highly recommend these to anyone.

Blu,
That looks AWESOME! I like that your has alot or room for tilt. I am working on a laser engravement for my rear support bar. It will say "GoldenEar Technology". I would really like to use the Font GoldenEar uses. But I am having a hard time finding it. Would love to have that font in AutoCad so I can dump it into my laser program. Maybe Santa will come thru for me. Once again, Great job. Did you make two stands? One for you and someone else? Merry christmas and happy new year to everyone here.

Thanks Buddy. Maybe you can get the font from Sandy at GE., That would also look nice on the base of my stand. Merry christmas and happy new year to you and yours as well.

DyeLooper,

You probably already knew that the font is Times New Roman, as my wild guess. Only thing is to find out the letter G. I tried to look it up thru the font list, including the ones in SolidWorks and AutoCad, but could not find it. They might have use a special designed character. You should ask Sandy as Bluvette suggested.

Base foot print? Well each leg is 5/8" x 1/2 " and overall 15-15 1/2" wide. Speaker stands 6-6 1/2" inches high off the TV stand. Four rubber feet that are able to tilt back or forward as needed.

Santa? Sandy? That would be real nice. I actually thought of it when I saw your stand and new that the Text would look great on your stand. Just thought I would try it on mine first. If it turns out real nice and you want it done, you can always ship the base to me or a new one and I will do it for you (has to be anodized though). I'll post something soon, maybe this weekend of what I get done with the font I use.

I have Triton twos up front with sat 50's in the rear with a 50c in the center and I'm wondering if it would be safe enough for me to run them along with my new Denon 4311CI for the weekend without getting into the whole tweaking of everything? I'll wait until next week if it safer but would mind hearing them over the long weekend.

As long as you make sure the sat 50's are crossed over at 80 or 100 you should be fine. I ran my 50's for a night without tweaking or audyssey and it was fine. I do like the results after audyssey though. I think it took less than an hour to run audyssey and tweak. But, enjoy the speakers, I love mine.

Yeah that's perfectly fine. I have the same speaker setup. I played several cd's on repeat in multichannel while not watching tv or movies. They need about 100hrs of break in, but keep getting better and better as hours pass by

Make sure you have the Tritons set to large full band and the 50c and 50 surrounds set to small and around 100-120hz
post #1155 of 2341
Thanks guys. I'm hoping to get started on the fronts within the hour or so I have not had the chance to read through on the Triton two manual but I'm assuming that there is some type of why connection to power the two subs on the speakers? Is there anything special they should be set at?

Just connect the tritons to the receiver with speaker wire, plug the power cord in turn the gain to around 10 o'clock, make sure they are set to full band in the receiver and you should be good to go. I don't have the tritons only the sat 50's, so triton owners feel free to chime in or correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks everyone. Of course I didn't get to it tonight with the wife and a 2 year old. I'm going to try and get it all setup tomorrow if I'm lucky. How would I setup the subwoofer on the Tritons along with my HSU VFT-15 using the audyssey to fine tune everything? Would I be better off just letting the VFT handle all the real low bass and the Tritons handle all the middle and upper bass management? Is there an easy way or am I over thinking it? I only planned on connecting the LFE out to the VFT-15.
post #1158 of 2341
Any new data and/or pricing on the upcoming in-walls yet? I'm very eager to know. Hopefully we see something come CES perhaps.

I'd say keep it simple.. LFE for the sub and just speaker wire for the tritons. Set the tritons to large full band. The sub will handle the ultra low bass
post #1160 of 2341
Thanks everyone you and Sandy via PM where very helpful. I'm looking to see what I should have my sub set at and I did post this over in the HSU this morning but nothing yet (I know it's a holiday weekend) not trying to be pushy just want to make sure I'm on the right track for when I get to it this afternoon.

To handle the more low end stuff so it's very clear and actuate but not loud and over powering. I want it to blend right in with clear crystal sound. For the lower end sound if I'm reading it correctly I would want to leave none of the ports open?

Set up with the following settings?
Ports: closed
Q: 0.3
Crossover Defeat Switch: Out
Phase Switch: 0*
Power: Auto-On
Operating Mode Switch: EQ1

Do these sound about right to everyone?

Wanted to know how to incorporate a FF sub into my current TritonCinema Two system? Current fronts are wired directly to L/R, like its recommended. I have 19x19 room and the Cinema system has give more detail than I have ever had before, but for the bass on either movies or music is just not the same as with a stand alone sub, my listening position is directly in front but if I move to either left or right then the subs on the Triton's become more pronounced. So I was thinking a FF 3, wireless, putting it about 5 feet behind and to my right would maybe be then change that's needed.
Please give me any input you can on my idea and the specs on connecting the sub and any changes that need to be made to current settings of the TritonCinema Two to accommodate the added Sub.(I am using the settings in the manual and the ones posted over on AVS for my system)

Thanks

Has anyone had the green light on the back of your Triton's flickering? On One of my Triton's the green light is flickering periodically.. Then turns solid green. When I turn the system off it shuts off like normal after a little while. Any thoughts?

Did your HSU work well with the Tritons? Where is the HSU thread? Couldn't find it.

It's on and in place just haven't really set it up properly yet I'm going to run the Audyssey setup tomorrow. I have not been able to figure out what the crossover should be set at yet on the VFT-15 so I'm still up in the air with that. Also really haven't thrown any real source at it other then regular TV, you know the whole wife and 2 year old thing

Yes. The F3 points are pretty close to what I saw measuring in room.
