Triton™ Two Tower Loudspeaker
The Triton Two Tower is a high-performance loudspeaker with a built-in powered subwoofer. It is designed for superb performance in both high quality two channel stereo systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music systems. Their sleek, elegantly curved and tapered design is important from both a styling as well as a performance perspective. The gorgeous piano black finish and compelling cutting-edge styling speaks for itself. However, additionally, the very narrow front baffle contributes significantly to Triton’s exceptional 3D imaging capability, which is especially important when used in 3D home theaters.
The built-in powered subwoofer section incorporates a GoldenEar designed 1200 watt DSP controlled digital amp to drive two front-mounted quadratic 5”x9” long-throw subwoofer bass drivers which are coupled to two side-mounted quadratic 7”x10” planar infrasonic radiators. The amp has a PLD (Programmable Logic Device) based state machine with a 278nS update time to manage a myriad of functions including soft-clipping, DC offset control, output-stage anti-saturation protection and discrete multi-band limiting. Intrinsic THD is extremely low so very little negative feedback is required thus ensuring optimum transient performance.
There are two 4.5” GoldenEar-designed cast-basket high-definition bass/midrange drivers which are arrayed in a D’Appolito configuration around the tweeter. The drivers incorporate a unique Multi-Vaned Phase Plug (MVPP) as well as a proprietary computer optimized cone topology that helps them to achieve smooth linear response extending beyond 20 kHz. Even though they are crossed over at 3.5 kHz, the extended bandwidth and smooth resonant-free response well beyond their crossover point helps them to achieve near ideal performance in the range in which they are utilized.
The high frequency driver is a proprietary High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) design. The tweeter diaphragm is a high temperature film, which is folded like an accordion and positioned within an intense neodymium magnetic field. Unlike more conventional dome or ribbon tweeters which push the air, the HVFR develops higher pressure and velocity by squeezing the air out between the pleats of the diaphragm. The result is better impedance matching to the air in the room with greater control, smoother more extended response and dramatically improved dynamic range.
