Hey Paul- would you happen to know if there is an issue with someone pairing the silver dsp sub with 500watt bash with the newer 600watt bash amp? My guess is no but just wanted confirmation.

Finally finished the screen wall! 3 in-wall Gold Monitors ready to rock. Acoustics in place. It's an unconventional install with 6" speakers in a 4" wall. The acoustic panels are 2" deep, so they are even with the front of the speakers. +6" stand-off supports for micro-perf screen (screen mounting brackets will add additional distance). Would have preferred a weave like the E4K, but the room dictated a different screen surface. Too bad few will see these great speakers once the screen goes up!

Here's a close-up showing how the speakers meet the acoustic panels. The flash and angle make the panels appear lighter in color than they are. After considering some of the advice given to me earlier in this thread (thanks Craig, Dennis), I decided to cut the fire blocks out of the wall and raise the speakers a little higher. Was a bit of a chore, but I think for the best. The speakers are now 1/3 of screen high. This places the tweeters above ear level, but a good trade-off I think. I wish I could have placed the screen lower, but this is as low as I can go due to the furniture.



I'll be driving these speakers with the bad boy on the right

That looks great! Nice work.

I'm planning the same wall build, I'm using Gold inwall/6 LCRs. (set them in 4" and buildup with 2" of foam)

What is the size of your screen? Do you have a build thread?

Thanks

Thanks! I tried to do a neat job, but nobody will ever see the work behind the screen. I just finished about half the wiring in the equipment closet, and I'm taking a coffee break! Thought about starting a build thread, but I've been so busy I just never got around to it. Screen is a 122.5" wide Stewart 2.40 with auto masking. It's in a massive crate in my garage now- 370 lbs. Acoustic panels are Auralex studiofoam wedgies. Trying to control some of the sound that bounces off the back of the screen. The panels are easy to trim with an electric carving knife, but it's time consuming to precisely trim around brackets, speakers, etc.... I used the tubetak adhesive rather than the foamtak. These are 1' x 1', but you can get them larger, and in other thicknesses. PM me if you have any questions. I'm in Tx also.

If I had only know I was going with a projection rig, I would have used 6" studs when I built the house. Could have done a few other changes that would have cost almost nothing..... but we do what we can. I do have 5 dedicated 20 amp circuits though . About half way through building the house I started thinking about a projection rig, and had the builder add an outlet for a possible projector, and outlets in the closet in case I ever moved the gear there. I did have some conduits and power cables running between the studs where the center channel speaker is, so that was a pain in the a$$. Hindsight is 20/20. Could have built a dedicated room, but we decided against it.

Here's the new Sony 1000 ready to go. It's already up and running and is just fantastic! Bright, quiet, sharp.



And a work in progress shot with the Gold Monitors. They are hooked up to the Parasound A51 now, and I can't wait to try them with some real horsepower.

Hey there. I'm the guy that bought your sub. Some questions...

I listen to movies loudly, which has never been a problem with my current Emotiva sub. This sub makes a thud noise when it's really trying to extend. Any idea what this is or how I can stop it? It only happens on the most bassy parts. It's quite off-putting.

What's the difference between volume and gain control? What is the slope? There's no manual. I'd hate to have to lower levels completely just to fix these things that only happen during certain parts.

Also unlike the 600 watt version, there's no IP control; yet another disappointment.

Check the low pass crossover setting. Might be set too high. I used it as a fill sub so I set the low pass up higher. The gain setting is for gain matching with the processor. Usually should be left at 0 or equal to your other sub. If the 600watt has IP control then this one would as well. I would update the firmware. Although I see nothing in the specs or manual for IP control in the 600 watt version.

Might also make sense to just do a factory reset to kill my settings.

Also - here's the manual PDF

Can someone suggest a good Triad dealer with the best prices?

I just received my plans from the pro theater layout service and I will be looking at 4 Bronze in walls.

My room is 15x21 with 8 ft ceilings. I have Klipsch RF-83's up front. Does anyone think it is necessary for me to go with the Silver line? Would that change the placement that the service has already specified for me?

Thanks.

I have this posted in my own thread but figured I should post it here as it may or may not be useful to anyone considering the Triad Gold LCRs.

Before anyone read my thoughts on the Triads, I think it may be a good idea for you to read my review/thoughts on the JTRs Sealed T8s I did almost a year ago as I feel it somewhat ties into this review.

If you read or did not read the review you should know that I loved the JTRs.

Disclosures: All these listening tests were done without the aid of alcohol or any other substances. It was just me and my two ears. I have not owned that many speakers in my lifetime, not as many as some here, but I have heard some friends and family members speakers, speakers at different events, various IMAX movie theaters, various aftermarket car audio system (not just woofers on wheels but good car audio systems), specialty stores with dedicated rooms and even some decent headphones.

OK so let's start

Both the JTRs and Triads look and feel to be solid build quality. My JTRs have a more rugged pro look while my Triads have more of a finished smoother, more refined, look. I prefer the Triads when the lights are on but usually we have the lights off when watching movies so maybe it a moot point for me. If your thing is to have a nicer finish the Triads look better but JTRs do make custom finishes as well for an additional cost.

After I hooked up the Triads, I disengage the previous Audyssey setting as it was set to work with the JTRs. I made sure all the crossovers were set to 80hz and level matched everything with an SPL meter and listened to music and some movies scenes for 1.5 hour and really loved what I heard.

I would have left things well enough alone but the bass coming out of the SubMersive was just a tad bit boomy (room related). So I decided to try Audyssey which did smooth out the bass more and I like what Audyssey does to my surrounds too.

Audyssey XT set my Gold LCRs to full range and I changed it to 80hz.

Audyssey had previously set the JTRs at -12 and it set the Triads at L/C/R -7.5, 8.0 and 7.0 respectively. Cleary the JTRs are more efficient/sensitive at 98db. The Triads Gold LCRs are 92db sensitive. With the Audyssey setting the JTRs at -12, the center channel (via SPL meter) measured 2db more than the left and right. I thought this might have given the JTRs an advantage as I thought dialog intelligibility was a little better on the JTRs. Triads were not bad at all (was actually great) but the JTRS were slightly better. While JTRs center was 2db more than the left and right speaker, the Triad left, center, and right measured the same via the SPL meter. I raised the level of the Triad center (1db) from -8.0 to -7.0 and the dialog improved further where I now feel they are about the same. Both are excellent at dialog intelligibility.

JTRs can definitely play louder but my room is only 1150cu. ft and I'm only sitting 8 to 8.5ft from the front 3 speakers. The Triads can go loud enough to put a grin on your face or damage hearing in this little room with the Onkyo 805 receiver. It's one of the few receivers that actually meet and exceeds its published specs (bench tests). I also feel that while the Triads are very dynamic, the JTRs seemed even more dynamic but in a small room like mine with the just 805 receiver, the Triads are way more than dynamic enough for me. In a much larger room, say ~2500cu ft or more, I believe the JTRs should have a bigger benefit in dynamics over the Triads when using the same wattage.

Let's just cut to the chase - In my room, even with the JTRs having a slight edge in dynamics and being more efficient, the Triads Gold LCRs are the best speakers I've ever owned. Triads are smoother, voices sound even more natural and it seems more delicate with certain material while resolving more detail. I'll go as far as to say, the Triads are the best speaker I've ever heard in my life time! (Again, this is just my personal preference and it should be noted that the JTRs new is still about half the price of the Triads new). To be even clearer, I am not saying there are not any other better speakers out there. I'm just saying that I personally have not heard anything better.

In 2 channel mode, the sealed Triple 8s gives a great wall of sound. The Gold LCRs seem to cast an even bigger, more engulfing, wall of sound. There were times when I could swear, not only was sound coming from center, the right, far right and left and far left of me but it almost sounded like there was sound wrapped around me (WTF?!) How is this possible? It was like wearing some of the best set of headphones but music had more air and or ambience/presence to it. Imaging was superb in two channel mode! While I was going through some of my favorite music cd's my, 68 year old, mother in law walks in the room a few times and starts dancing. I could not believe how great these speakers sound and how the lead singer's voice was anchored at, what seemed like, the center channel even though this was in stereo (2 channel mode). The T8-lps did this quite well too but the Triads were revealing more details while remaining smoother to my ear. I was in such disbelief that I sat my mother-in-law in chair (sweet spot) and asked her Can you tell me which speaker you can hear the voices while the music plays? My mother-in-law begins to pick up back ground singers on the right speaker, tells me she hears certain instruments on the left side and then explain the lead singers voice is coming from that speaker (as she points towards the center channel - which was not even on). It's one thing for me to understand some of this stuff and pay attention or look out for it but it's amazing that it's so apparent to someone who knows nothing of this hobby and could care less but yet she can still pick up on this stuff so easily. On movies, this trait makes the Gold LCR seems more fluid - meaning stuff just pans across the front stage so smoothly. There are no drop outs, holes or gaps, if you will, in the front stage. The Triple 8s were exceptional at this, the Golds are slightly better.

Since I've had the JTR T8-lp's for almost a year, I had a lot of opportunities to try different sources on them. On some poor sources, the JTRs can really point out the flaws in the source. Sometimes if the source is bad enough, it's not pleasurable listening experience. I don't think this is a flaw in the JTR as they excel when the source is good/great. Less than stellar sources on the Triads don't sound great but it does not sound as bad as it does on the JTRs. This may not seem like such a bad thing but if I'm watching a movie with a somewhat poor recording/source, I am more focused on how distracting it sounds versus actually watching the movie. This is probably just a mental flaw in me as it does not bother the wife or others who has watched these movies with me. Since the Triads don't sound as bad with the same source, I am more focused on the movie and can enjoy it that much more.

IMHO the JTRs are great at live acoustic type music. It's an incredible goose bump inducing experience. They are good with most music as well (source dependent of course). The Triads are a goose bump inducing experience regardless of the genre of music, not just live acoustic stuff. While I have experienced goose bumps on previous speakers, the Triads do it way more often. There was one point where the Triads induced tears That has never happened with any other speaker regardless of source, material, location, price, venue and etc! The Triad Golds are silky smooth, detailed and a pleasure to listen to at any volume. It does not have to be turned to near reference to enjoy them. For a guy who was always 99% HT, the Triads have me listening to more music in 1½ week than what I have listened to in the past 2 years or 2 previous systems. I feel they are fantastic with movies and yet even better with music. I never felt the need to pull out CDs with my last 2 systems as I do now - not that the JTRs or my Sapphires sounded bad with music but that's how phenomenal I think the Gold LCRs are with music.

It seems I can turn the volume up more on the Triads and they seem to sound fuller, smoother, may be warmer than the JTRs yet remain very detailed. I don't know why this is - I thought with the JTRs being more efficient it would sound more composed (if you will) at reference. JTR sound composed at reference but the Triads sound composed yet fuller at reference. (Again this is in my small treated room with an Onkyo 805 receiver).

Midbass seems slightly improved and smoother on the Triads. I'm also noticing more subtle details in movies and music. I can hear more instruments on music and heard a few background singers I never heard before on certain songs. On movies, if someone is walking outside, I hear more of the details like the wind, leaves/trees ruffling, birds chirping and background noises. On other movie scenes where someone might be talking in a big room a little louder than normal; I can clearly hear their voice in the center speaker and a subtle echo on either the right or left speaker. It's not only that I can hear these details clearer now vs previous speakers but it's how life like they sound that is equally impressive. These subtle details, mixed with big dynamic swings, superb clarity, engulfing wall of sound and the smooth/natural sound of the Gold LCR makes for an amazing music and movies experience -the best I've ever heard in my home or previous homes/set up. It really boggles my mind how a speaker can be this detailed, have this kind of clarity, sound so natural and tight yet remains so silky smooth.

I've had my in-laws staying with us for a few weeks. They have been watching movies with us almost every night. My mother-in law was always quick to tell me to turn down the volume on previous systems (except the JTRs). She never once mentioned that with the Triads either. Can't remember what movie it was, but I had it around -6 from reference for most of the movie but for the last 40mins, I let it ride at reference and no one said anything. I thought it sounded great but at the end of the movie, I asked them if it was too loud and they said no.

In the End, I feel it was a huge gamble for me to buy the JTRs without ever listening to them and the gamble paid off very nicely. It was an even bigger gamble for me to buy the Triads (used), which, I also never heard; from someone I never met. I've been very lucky as the bigger risk is reaping bigger/sweeter gains. I know we all say this at one point or another in this hobby but in my current room, there is no need or desire to upgrade from the Triads Gold LCR. The only desire is to spend more time in said room!

While sound quality preferences/opinions will differ from person to person, I still feel the JTRs are a tremendous value. If one likes a speaker with excellent dynamics, dialog intelligibility, ability to play very loud and great overall clarity then Triple 8s are probably for you, but FOR ME and if someone wants the same clarity and great dynamics but with more a little more refinement, smoother sound, and greater low level detail, then the Triads would make almost anyone ridiculously happy.

There you have itThe Triad Gold LCRs are my favorite speaker...ever!

Nice write up. The JTR's are all about output. Try comparing the JTR's to the Platinums. Would be another story all together. There is no comparison. I haven't heard a speaker yet that can compete (for home theater) when it comes to raw output, dynamics and resolution. They do a great job with music as well. Not the best I've heard for pure music but for a room used for movies first and some music, Plats are top notch.
post #4242 of 6133
Thanks Tony! I’ve read many great things about the Plats and the Gold Monitors too.

I’ve never heard any JTRs other than the ones I owned. The JTRs T8s I had were actually a new sealed version that came out in mid 2011. As I understand it, Jeff at JTR has made improvements each year to achieve better SQ. The ones I owned and all 2011 and newer JTRs now use a BMS compression driver which increased SQ even further. Even with all that said, I still prefer my Golds LCRs. IMHO, I never thought my JTRs were bad in SQ. They were actually pretty good but the Triads Gold LCRs, man those Triads are really somethin’ spectacular!

Well I talked to a Triad rep. They told me to raise the high pass crossover to at least 25 hz. This fixed it but doesn't this mean that the sub isn't going as deep as it should be able to?

How loud do you have your subs set to? If you play back a test tone from your proc. what does your spl read for the subs?

Go to the home page of the Triad web site www.triadspeakers.com and go to "How to buy." For your area, call the local Triad rep and ask for a dealer. As far as "best price," Triad is not an inflated-price product that has deep discounts, but you are on your own with the dealer. As far as trying to order out of your area, keep in mind that dealers claiming to be Triad dealers often aren't but they "can get it." In that case, you could be getting discontinued product, B-stock, freight damaged, used, or worse. If you order from an authorized dealer, the product is specifically made to your order, and it's the most up-to-date, plus you have a 10-year warranty on speakers. Also, if you buy from an authorized dealer, the grills can be paint matched at no additional charge. (Once the grills have been painted white or black at the factory, they can't be repainted.)

When you say "4 Bronze in walls" which model do you mean? Surrounds? (We have all kinds of Bronze InWall models.) The Bronze Surrounds are similar to the Silver Surrounds, but the Silvers play a few dB louder and you can safely use an 80 Hz crossover frequency. With those Klipsch, the Bronze Surrounds should be set at 100 Hz, regardless of what Audyssey says.
post #4247 of 6133
Paul,

Thanks for the heads up about the authorized dealers and the not so authorized dealers. I must say a 10 year warranty is impressive and inspires quite a bit of confidence that triad is standing by a quality product.

The layout designer (shawn byrne) recommended triad In wall bronze surrounds. He gave no other specifics but I can ask Him.
post #4248 of 6133
Can anyone comment on what kind of amplifier power I'd want with a Bronze LCR and surround setup?

http://shop.emotiva.com/collections/...roducts/upa500

Will this be enough to power the speakers to loud levels? To clarify "loud", I'm confused on what a dB actually means but my receiver is set to between -5 and 0 dB at movie watching volume.

I'm not opposed to upgrading to the more powerful XPA line if I had to.

Boy, I just found this! Can't wait to officially purchase my Triad Plats!!

Just a few questions............

Are Plats really that big.........or is Paul just vertically challenged? I'm thinking the former.....

That's a Platinum LCR in a BaffleWall on a stand, so it looks huge. I'm a hair under six feet tall, wiseass.

Without subs (I'm not quite sure on pricing) you could probably get a full Silver system with 3 LCRs and 2 surrounds. IIRC when I priced out a full bronze system (3 LCRs, 2 surrounds) that it was about $2500.

From what I've read, then with that room size it'll be best to use their dipole "surrounds" as surrounds. I'm getting fantastic results from my OnWall Bronze LCRs. Hoping to get me some dipole surrounds as my room is about 13' x 18'.
post #4254 of 6133
If given the chance will it most always be a better experience to use side surround as opposed to ceiling surrounds? Could a higher quality ceiling surround like what triad offers perhaps match or give as good of an experience as a lower quality side surround option? Just curious as I originally was planning on in ceiling surrounds but decided to stick with my paradigm side dipole surrounds after reading a ton of threads. Not sure I saw one that approached that specific question although I'm quite sure I know the answer.

Hi guys

I need some help.
I've been planning my theatre for some time now and i'm at the point of purchasing Sonance Cinema LCR 1 and sur1. But since i've come across this thread i'm confused can anyone give some advice as to what the difference between the two I should go with and what triad's would you recommend to match the sonance's.

I've got a Integra DTR 80.2 receiver
Room size is 4000mmx5500mm, 4000 being the front wall.

Thanks in advance.

Looking to run a non surround system using two triad 6 gold lcr inwalls. Any idea on a great amp to run them? Parrasoud? Any suggestions without breaking the bank. I'm assuming that a denon avr just won't do them justice? What would you suggest as a processor for eq and so on as incase I want to go to a full surround in the future.

Parasound would be a good choice. I use Classe stereo and mono blocks for my plats but that depends on budget. Parasound has the best bang for the money. Especially on Audiogon. Another amp that seems to match well with the Triad is ADA. I have the PTM6150 running my surrounds but they sounded great for mains as well.

It COULD have been the best-sounding demo ever if the bass level had remained where it belonged. The early RackAmp500s (16 of them for 8,000 watts) kept defaulting and losing calibration memory. I heard the system sound thin twice, but the one time it was set properly, tears came to my eyes. It was superb.

InRoom Silver LCRs are $800 each and the InWall versions are $900 each. InWall and OnWall Surrounds are both $700 each. You may be able to scale down to two Bronze Surrounds and save $400, if that matters.

Are you trying to match some Triad speakers to Sonance, or are you looking for a comparison? I no longer work for Triad, so I'll go out on a limb and say the difference between the two is like the difference between a piggy bank and a vault. You have a spectacular receiver, and it deserves appropriate speakers, otherwise, you spent too much on it. There are inwalls from Triad that will fit into a 4" stud space, but if you have 6" of space, your options open up (along with your wallet.) Sonance makes very good distributed audio speakers, but they are not known for their home theater products. For inwalls, though, you could do a lot worse than Sonance, which is decent quality.
