No problem since you have a really good subwoofer you have options and can't really go wrong. I've heard the t7s and I was very impressed but speaking solely for myself I get the upgrade bug too much so I tend to save up to get what I want.

Dear Sandy,

We all are very eager to find out if there would be a big brother to Triton 2 (If there could be a triton 1). Kindly let us know if we could expect something big in the near future.

John

I have been reading people reviews on forums and it seems like almost all of them complain about there ge tritons 2 once they have them home they end up selling them and buying some thing else I really like the way they sound and get great reviews on sound and vision mag any. Reason why?
post #1895 of 2341
We've all heard the rumors about a Triton 1, but is anyone else curious if Goldenear is working on a dipole/bipole surround speaker?

Sandy, I'd love to hear your opinions on these type of speakers if you get a chance.

Ditto- I watched craigslist , AVS, Audiogon for a long time and rarely saw Triton 2's being sold. Where did you find them being commonly sold. Also what was the complaint?

Google triton 2 and look at the blogs you will see people complaining and saying there going to sell them! It's weird because all of the magazines articles I find they say there are really good speakers. I just try and read everything I can on them so when I buy speakers I will be happy because it's a big purchase thanks for responding

It would be nice to have a couple of reviews on youtube of ge tritons 2 ht set up!

I have the aons 3 and the super center X up front, I am debating on rears, I am thinking of getting a pair of aons 2 or super sats for the rear, but I am also thinking of getting the sevens and putting them up front and using the aons 3's for the rears, my question is, what would the sevens ad that I don't have with the aons 3's, I have been at this hobby for a long time and have changed speakers a few times, I always found something that I felt was missing, the golden ears have solved that problem, I have spent thousands on speakers, aerial, salk, b&w to name a few, I have not enjoyed any of them as much as I do the golden ears, thanks

Currently I have Triton 2's and GE 50C - though I'm redoing my HT so I haven't set these up yet.
I also have a Klipsch RC-64II center channel that's is looking for a new home that I haven't sold yet.
When I sell that I'll probably get the Super Center XL and some GE surrounds.

I've read on this thread of many people mixing and matching - i.e. one person used Triton 2's all around (I think even as his center channel) and others (like yourself) using Aon's as surrounds or as a center
Aren't centers and surrounds specifically built to do each job best and not another job- i.e. wouldn't using a triton 2 (designed as a front channel) be worse when used as a center or surround than a center / surround channel designed for that job (i.e. better at the high frequencies for the center, and better dispersion and surround effect for the surrounds?

I have the super X as my center, it is excellent, I would not consider any other speaker as my center,

Horizontal center speakers (and small surrounds) were created/designed to accommodate space issues in the average living room or entertainment cabinet, not to improve sonic quality. Technically the ideal is identical speakers all the way around (how theaters are set up, how movies are mixed) so using 5 Aon's would create a great HT/surround experience! But, since most homes don't have room for that manufacturers do their best to create speaker's that will fit with the best possible sound.

I started with 3x Aon 3's across the front in my secondary home theater room, but I traded up to Triton Seven's for mains. The Seven's are a little more open and airy than the Aon's, and they go even deeper. I probably haven't owned as many speakers as you, but I have a friend who's a real audiophile and loves to experiment. I've heard *lots* of speakers at his home. I've never heard a sound I like better than GoldenEar, except for his Bozak Concert Grands. But I'm guessing they stand almost 5' tall, a good 30" wide and maybe 18" deep. Not exactly home theater friendly, and maybe not the kind of sound I'd want in my home theater anyway. I have no trouble recommending the Triton Seven's as mains, and the Aon 3's as surrounds. I still use an Aon 3 as a center in that room, and it's a really good match for the Seven's. You'll definitely be able to tell the difference between the Aon 3's and the Seven's as mains and for stereo music. I experimented with Aon 3's for my main home theater room, but I found them a bit too small and got Triton Two's. However, had I heard the Triton Seven's before I bought the Triton Two's it would have been a harder decision as to which to use in that bigger room. That's how much I like the Seven's.

I think there are a lot of people that don't know how to set them up. For instance they should not be crammed against a wall. They need space to sound their best. Also until the new centers came out, people were complaining about missing mid-bass, which they weren't aware the Tritons were handling. Or heard that the mid-bass was missing and decided they had to sell their set up because there was not a "competent" center channel.

Personally i have had my GE2's and SS50 C for just over 2 years and until i auditioned the SCXL, i did not realize what i was missing. The SS50 sounded better to me than my Paradigm Reference series center, when mixed with the GE2's which are superior to the Reference Paradigms i had.

A triton2 would be the best center, giving the full dynamics to the center channel. It is just too big a speaker for most set-ups. That is why Sandy originally designed the SS50c so it could be mounted under a flat screen.

Triton 2's can also be used for surrounds, giving that lucky person 4 subs in their set up.

I am thinking of moving up from the aons 3's to the 7's, if anyone would be interested in the 3's pm me, thanks

Help I have a denon 3808 receiver I just bought my ge tritons 2 and I started to set them up using audyssey mic it says caution l/r phase what does this mean? HELP
post #1912 of 2341
make sure the polarity of the speakers is correct. positive to positive and negative to negative on both sides of the speaker cable.

This happened to me on my old 3808. As long as your positive and negative is correct at the receiver and then to the GE's, ignore it. I called my dealer when it happened to me and those were the instructions they gave me. I ran my GE's from 2011 until may of this year on my 3808. When i bumped up to Audyssey XT32 in my Onkyo 818, never had that problem.

Congrats, they will give you excellent sound for years to come.

I just did that and it worked thanks my audyssey set up my tritons 2 at 40Hz and my super center xl at 40Hz is that right ?
post #1915 of 2341
I will more than likely move up to the SCXL in the new year. Since i have a SS50C that is being replaced, i was wondering about using it as a surround speaker (then getting another to match). It looks like the only difference between it and the regular SS50 is that the terminals would be turned and the goldenear label would be turned, otherwise i believe they are the same speaker???

Can anyone offer assistance??
post #1916 of 2341
I run the Triton Two's full range and the SuperCenter XL at 60hz because it's more efficient that way. You could run the XL at 40hz, though. I have no doubt it can go that low. It's a monster. biggrin.gif

I think the SS50C has its tweeter oriented for horizontal operation, while the regular SS50 is vertical.
