I didn't realize until after the fact that the only controls on the Triax are gain, power, program 1 or 2 (adjusts low end slope), and a mute button (Tom said this is just for diagnostic purposes). So for those needing to adjust phase, they'll have to use an external device.

Still, if the Triax performs like we are expecting/hoping, these are minor details that can be dealt with. I'm certainly not canceling my order. biggrin.gif

No phase adjust? This seems very odd that a premium sub like this doesn't have one. Seems like a this would limit your placement flexibility and integration with more than 1 sub. AutoEq systems like audyssey xt would optimize one sub, but you would need audyssey xt32 to phase align two subs. Not everyone has those though...

I dont think the subm, cap, or any sub that utilizes a speaker power plate amp is equuipped with phase..I may be wrong so do not quote me.

You could be right...never realized that, if that's the case. Strange why a seemingly simple thing like that would be omitted from a plate amp perspective.

Just thought I would throw this out there as I was I think the second guy to order the Triax, it originally was concieved to be a six driver monster, like two Triaxs stacked. Just to assemble this creature Tom and Jim would have had to invest in a lot of extra equipment like lifts and other devices just to asseble the Triax and move it around. Then the end user (us) trying to even get this thing into the house and position it, weight would have been almost four hundred pounds eek.gif I know I would have probably bought it wink.gif So I guess the Triax will be the only model in the Prism line. Are there loudspeakers in the plans, I would think so but don't want to start any false rumors, I would be first in line tho. smile.gif
Cheers Jeff

Is any of you ordering the triax in the 220v-240v configuration? I thought it was only 110v. I wonder if it would be significantly better or just a slight increase.

My xv15 arrived today! biggrin.gif

I tell ya, I admit I'm getting older, but whooo... that felt awfully heavy taking it down my stairs to the basement. lol eek.gif

Ran a very quick audyssey setup with my Denon 4311 (my family is visiting this week and they came back while I was attempting setup) and like what I'm hearing. BUT... if someone could point me to any posts, advice, etc.. on levels etc..
After the quick setup, the 4311 put my sub at -1.5dB. My gain on the sub is set at approximately 1:30 to get 75dB. Freq adjust I set all the way to the right.

Thanks all! Have a great night! biggrin.gif

Thanks much. smile.gif

I can't really enjoy the sub quite yet, the family is visiting. lol tongue.gif BUT, I did throw on flight of the phoenix just to test out the beginning crash scene.... Only put the sound to -40 to make sure I didn't disturb anyone, and just THAT level put a huge grin on my face... lol biggrin.gif

Next week I'll be able to test everything fully... can't wait. biggrin.gif

Have you had a chance to mess around with it yet in regards to listening? What size room do you have it in?

I've been tinkering with it for about a day and a half. I placed it in the same spot previously held by a VTF3MK4 and an XS30. it handles the room much better than the XS30 as the room is about 8k cubic feet and open to several other rooms.

I don't see myself needing anything more but I really find myself shocked at how well the VTF3 kept up in here by comparison (in max output mode of course).


The XV30f is certainly impressive to behold and to hear. Just mentally prepare yourself for the sheer amount of presence should you decide to go with one :-) It digs deep and loud... I watched Cloverfield and it almost ran me out of the room!

Have a XV30F right now but it isn't enough for me and upgrading to a Triax biggrin.gif

Total volume it is currently in is a little bit over 8,000 CF as well.

Replying from my phone and I missed your sig lol. That Triax should be a beast! I don't think my neighbors would put up with that too well as the XF already shakes the driveway. I keep waiting for that note on my door.

Ah, no worries smile.gif

When was your house built? I browse around the forum and hear about all of these people saying their subs annoy their neighbors. Home I'm in was built in early 2000s and is around 1900sq ft but there isn't anyway it reaches the neighbors houses. Its in the living room which you enter from the front door and while the front doors do vibrate it isn't something that would transfer all the way over to the neighbor's houses.

In a standard neighborhood too, so its not like we are on a few acres with plenty of space between homes. And I listen plenty loud wink.gif

My house is a 2100sq ft ranch built in 1977 and is a similar layout as yours. I do not get any complaints from the neighbors either. The lot is fairly large being 150x150' so that must help.

Our house was built in 06 sitting on about 1/3rd acre. The houses are pretty densely packed so it's tough to say. The couple to our left are older so I try to be a little more aware of our noise level but it's quite possible that they cant hear a thing. The folks behind me however. .. I KNOW they can hear it. biggrin.gif

At sixty and sixty-nine, we qualify as an older couple and we're a whole lot more forgiving and tougher then you know.

We're not fragile flowers.

Sorry Bee, I'd never imply that you were! These folks are more like 80 and the wife is sick...that's more where my concern stems from. My dad is 70 and loves the loud stuff. smile.gif

I noticed the base plate versions were removed from the website?

Interesting.

Perhaps it wasn't selling? I wonder if the baseplate is still available?
