While the Gold LCR does have larger woofers (and a physically larger cabinet), worth noting that the Gold Monitors use much more expensive Scan-Speak Revelator drivers. So it's not quite apples to apples to note that the Gold LCR has 8.5" woofers whereas the Gold Monitor has 7" woofers.

Have you heard both? If so, which do you prefer - i.e. Gold LCR's or Monitors?

I have heard both and the difference is mostly noticeable when playing music. The Gold Monitor's have a smoother, slightly warmer, and more "musical" sound than the Gold LCRs. That's why I recommend them to our customers looking for both high-end movie and music reproduction.

We generally spec the Gold LCRs for dedicated theater rooms and they can play loud and sound great. They are excellent speakers to be sure.

Dawn,

My plan for my renovated/upgraded home theatre, built in 1997 originally, is to move from a 5.2.4 system to a 9.4.13 system. Speakers will be 3 Aerial Acoustics 7t floorstanders up front, 6 Aerial 7LCRs on wall, for the base layer. 2 JL Audio f212 subwoofers (each sub has 2 12" woofers) and 2 Paradigm Personal subwoofers (each sub has 6 8" woofers), with subs at the quarter points of the side walls. Currently per my installer Gerry Behm, [email protected], we have planned 13 Triad inceiling rotatable/9 Sat speakers. My theatre is 18'3" wide, 25' deep (the buildout at the rear, where we took out cabinets/shelves/wetbar and are putting in new cabinetry, etc with moving component racks back there and also projector, so may end up only 24' to 24.5' deep when we get done with this), and 12' high. My installer recommended the Triad inceiling rotatable/9 Sat speakers as they can be aimed with the built in laser at the MLP and as my ceiling is high at 12' high. At CEDIA of course the Trinnov (I have Trinnov Altitude 32 SSP) - Triad demo was very nice and impressive, using Triad Gold up front and I believe Triad Gold minis for the rest.
Since we originally planned the above Triad inceiling speakers, we have decided that we can move air vents and lighting if necessary to obtain near perfect positioning.

Question whether you would recommend I consider any different Triad speaker inceiling for this purpose,and the pros and cons of this approach?

Also, do you think there is any benefit of adding any inceiling Triad subwoofer(s), and if so please explain.

I admit that at CEDIA I really didn't hear the benefit of any inceiling subwoofers, and too many subs in too many places adds to the complexity of PEQ and Trinnov optimization for the subs. But curious what you think about this.

I thought 13 was a typo, then you repeated it again! What are you going to do with THIRTEEN in-ceiling speakers? Even if the Atmos setup was 9.4.8, which is already a lot, and you add some extra for Auro3D (e.g. Center Height and/or Surround Height) I'm still not following how you get to 13? If your room is long enough that you're going for the full 10 Atmos overheads, I would question why you only have 9 speakers on the base layer?

If it's for Auro/Atmos cross-compatibility, the Trinnov is smart enough to let you repurpose the Atmos "Top Middle" speakers as an array for "Top Surround" (voice of god) for Auro. I'm assuming this is a relatively large room, with so many ceiling speakers, so it wouldn't make sense to have a single mono Top Surround but rather array it to directly-overhead using existing Atmos middle overheads (an example in this Auro3D layout diagram showing a VoG array to multiple overheads, which will create more even coverage of the seating vs a single speaker).

^^ I'm with you. I don't understand 13 either, particularity with the 3D remapping feature of the Trinnov.

My room is 22 feet long so 8 ceilings speakers would work, and 10 would be stretch. I don't need a VOG since the heights above my head can be that. If I were to expand beyond my 9.x.6 it would be 13.x.8.

I'm sure he must have a good reason!

As I am remodeling, I thought why not cover every eventuality, and Trinnov advised that I do this as long as I don't mind the extra cost. Note my theatre after remodel, with cabinets/component racks, etc at back, will be 18' 3" wide, 24.5' long, 11'11" high.

I hear you but I am surprised Trinnov would make this kind of recommendation given the existence of re-mapping - along with the non-existence of Auro source material. But, if DTS:X Pro will use all of those speakers, it could be quite interesting.

I agree with BP and others. 13 Atmos speakers is way too many. Depending on the number of rows, I would consider (4) IC Bronze LCRs, for the front and rear Atmos speakers, and (2) IW Bronze LCRs for the middle of the room.

Actually, I have a number of 2L blu ray audio discs and some of them have Auro-3D tracks!!!

Dawn, my installer recommended the Triad inceiling rotatable/9 Sat speakers as they can be aimed with the built in laser at the MLP and as my ceiling is high at 12' high. Isn't this an issue with the IC Bronze LCRs and IW Bronze LCRs? Please explain the pros and cons of these speakers vs the Triad inceiling rotatable/9 Sat speakers for my setup. Trinnov and others have emphasized the importance of the top/inceiling speakers being aimed at the MLP (middle listening position).

We typically use Silver RotaSats for problem theaters where standard LCRs won't work properly. Atmos is based on coverage and height, and the IC Bronze LCRs are angled toward the listener at a 45 degree angle.

If you could upload a floorplan (with seating) we can take a look to see if there are any problems.

Thanks, Dawn. In talking with my installer, he advises that due to large overside air vents, this limits ceiling placement a bit, which is why he has recommended what he has. However, I will give him your email to discuss with you as the ceiling install is scheduled to start the start of October as my attic is awful hot here in Arizona now!

OK, that doesn't really answer the question. What possible eventuality will require THIRTEEN ceiling speakers? And in what version of that eventuality is 13 ceiling speakers required yet you only need 9 ear level speakers?

Are they recommending something like this? Two five-speaker arrays front-to-back and then a Center Height + Top Surround in the middle for Auro3D? If so, I would argue that a multi-row theater like that should also have at least dual side-surrounds to even coverage across the rows for surround effects, so at minimum 11 speakers at ear level.

Per Adam Pelz, Trinnov recommends the standard 10 Dolby Atmos speakers, then add a single Height Center and a pair of Tops to cover multiple rows, which would be 13 channels and do a good job with all 3 immersive formats..

Few people know more about home theater (and, specifically, Trinnov) than Adam, so I would trust his recommendation as his reputation is impeccable. That said, it still doesn't make sense to me that if 5 pairs of Atmos overheads are merited, why wouldn't the situation by extension also merit additional side-wall speakers? I would expect at least dual side surrounds, as I noted above.

Regardless, you are in extremely good hands and clearly have the budget to make no compromises, so I am 100% sure you will be thrilled with the result especially if Adam is calibrating the system.

What do you all think of this setup?

4x Triad inwall Bronze surrounds
4x Triad inceiling Bronze/8 Sat for Atmos

Would a Silver/6 Sat for Atmos be worth the extra $200?

It's really mostly dependent on ceiling height. I seem to remember that you have an 8 foot ceiling, so the Bronze Sats should work.

I would like to thank Dawn for her excellent advice recommending the Bipole Inwall Bronze/4 Surrounds to use as my Atmos speakers, my ceiling is 7'-10" high and the resulting sound is clean, clear and room filling with explosive dynamics without any beaming. I also use 2 Onwall Bronze Surrounds for surround speakers (of course) and a pair of custom made Vifa bipole speakers for the top rear speakers. Amplification is a mix of new and old Van Alstine and Adcom amps for a total of 1765 high current watts.


Installation took a week, crawling through the attic was impossible because of a combination of low height, braces and 16" of blown insulation so I figured out how to run wires from hole to hole from below.


The goal was to make as many speakers as possible disappear. I think I succeeded, the finished photo has 8 speakers.

Yep 8 feet. Which will be reduced 2-3” depending on my soundproofing

I'm building a new house and I'm considering using two of the InWall Bronze 4 or 6 Sub, would it be better to have two amps or get the subs at 8 ohm sharing an amp? Not sure how much of a price difference/performance difference there is either way?

I believe that there's a 3db difference between using (2) 8 ohm subs with a single RackAmp 300 and going with (2) RackAmp 300's and (2) 4 ohm subs.

MSRP pricing below:

(2) InWall Bronze Subs with RackAmp 300 (two 8-ohm woofer enclosures): $2260

(1) InWall Bronze Sub with RackAmp 300 (4-ohm woofer enclosure): $1460 x 2 = $2920

Thanks, so not too drastic, probably more of a difference though with the low end of the 6 vs 4.

Looking into this a bit more I may need to use the in ceiling bronze 10 sub.

Here is a general layout of the room (22x18), the cathedral ceiling makes it challenging, I guess I should be using inceiling vs inwall for these locations?



Green = Triad In Ceiling Silver 8 LCR or ?
Yellow = ?
Red = Possible Sub locations

Here is a general layout of the room (22x18), the cathedral ceiling makes it challenging, I guess I should be using inceiling vs inwall for these locations?



Green = Triad In Ceiling Silver 8 LCR or ?
Yellow = ?
Red = Possible Sub locations
I would rather see InWall's in the corners of the room instead of InCeiling mounting. If you can only do InCeiling, then try to get the subs closer to the walls or even near the corners for better performance.

Thanks, i'll probably be limited to the 4 with in walls in those locations, but since this is a general viewing room the loss of the deeper low end should be ok.

Yes I do on Rotating silver Sats. I have 4 of them. Room is small, single row of seats.

Rotating to aim is handy and works well. The 9v laser guide is neat trick but once installed not needed. Helpful but slightly gimmicky, guess it depends on cost to add this feature.

Performance the sound nice, in Atmos duty it is hard to critically assess ceiling speakers when there is so much more info coming at you from other channels.

I have Triad silver everywhere else in my 7.2.4 so it made sense.

I Thank-You ... Sir for your response.

My H/T is, 24' Long, 20' Wide 9' Ceiling.
Approximate dimensions ^^^

When and if I ever get to add Atmos I'm going to go with six (6) overhead speakers.

Thanks again,
Terry
