The sleek 48” tall Triton Two is a high-performance loudspeaker with a built-in powered subwoofer. The Triton Two Tower is engineered for superb performance in both high quality two channel stereo systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music systems. The sleek, elegantly curved and tapered design is not only gorgeous but is important from a performance perspective as well.
The subwoofer section is powered by a 1200 watt GoldenEar designed ForceField Digital Amplifier. The amplifier’s DSP design not only yields extremely linear and low distortion response, but also dynamically controls operating parameters for optimum performance. The amp drives two 5”x 9” front-mounted quadratic subwoofer bass drivers which are coupled to dual side-mounted 7”x10” quadratic planar infrasonic bass radiators. The result is awe-inspiring bass, which delivers both musical subtlety as well as room-shaking authority.
The advantages of building the subwoofers into the Tritons are many. First, of course, this eliminates the need for additional bulky subwoofer boxes in the room. But more important are the performance advantages. By engineering the subwoofer as an integral part to the speaker, we get far superior integration and blending than can be achieved with separate subwoofers, even when using two. The two subwoofers in a pair of Tritons couple better to the air in the room, helping to better deal with the room's eigenmodes and smooth out response. Of course, the dual subwoofers are also intrinsically more powerful and couple together synergistically for more truly exceptional bass. Hookup is as simple as just speaker wire, and there is a separate LFE input if desired.
There are two cast-basket upper bass/midrange drivers, which incorporate GoldenEar’s proprietary Multi-Vaned Phase Plug (MVPP™) as well as a computer optimized cone design. They are arranged in a D’Appolito array surrounding the tweeter, an extraordinary new High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) design. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion-like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. With its sleek, narrow 5.25” wide baffle, the Triton Two’s sophisticated look not only blends with any décor, but also helps the speaker create truly magnificent 3D imaging with tremendous depth, height and width that extends well beyond the loudspeakers themselves. As with all GoldenEar speakers, development work is conducted at our Arnprior engineering facility utilizing our full-size anechoic chamber, which is an exact duplicate of the chamber at the NRC in Ottawa Canada, in combination with intense critical listening.
The Triton Two Tower is finished with an elegant black designer cloth and piano-black base.
