Hi, Regarding a bigger brother to the Triton Two: Nothing at this point. Going beyond the T2 is no easy feat, but maybe someday. Now, hopefully a useful tip.
Tips on Using LFE in on Tritons: As you know, we normally suggest just hooking up Tritons with speaker wire and configuring your processor to Large Left and Right and Sub No. This will then feed the LFE signal into the left and right speaker channels and it goes down the speaker wire where the circuitry in the Triton takes it out and feeds it to the sub. There has been much confusion regarding why we suggest this and whether or not some receivers are actually doing this, based on the fact that some listeners found the LFE level much more pronounced ( to them, better) when they ran separate LFE into the Tritons. While there might be some units that do not feed the LFE into the Left and Right channels, per the Dolby spec , almost all do. The key here is that when you say Sub No, the LFE signal is sent into the Left and Right channels at a level predetermined by the electronics manufacturer and not variable by the user, as it would normally be when the LFE out is used. Some listeners, apparently, want a higher LFE level than the standard setting. We would suggest using the LFE out (Large Left and Right and Sub Yes) and inputing into the LFE ins on the Tritons, if you want a higher LFE level. I believe that when some listeners found that it "works better" with separate LFE, the "working better" was that they then had the LFE level higher. The reason why we have always suggested Large Left and Right and Sub No is that everything is then properly balanced, especially for stereo two channel music listening. Some processors have a setting( called variously super bass, bass plus etc.), or perhaps running all the time, that even with Large Left and Right, in two channel mode the low bass is sent both to the left and right speakers and the sub. The problem here is that if you have speakers with extended bass, like the Tritons, you will have too much bass and it will likely be boomy. In the case of the Tritons, if you use LFE and one of these bass plus settings, the Tritons will basically be sent double the bass signal on two channel music. Hopefully, now, everything is perfectly clear. All the Best, Sandy
