GoldenEar Technology Triton Two Floorstanding Speaker First Look
If you're going to have a name like GoldenEar Technology, you'd better have something other than silver wiring and pretty aesthetics to back it up. Sandy Gross, co-founder of Polk Audio and Definitive Technology, and Don Givogue, another Definitive co-founder have the sort of pedigree that lends instant respect to a new audio company. The top of the line Triton Two has dual 4.5-inch upper bass/midrange drivers with multi-vaned phase plugs in a D’Appolito configuration around a High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) tweeter. The HVFR tweeter is composed of a high temperature film which is folded like an accordion. According to GoldenEar Technology, this combination takes up no more room on the speaker face than a 1" dome tweeter but has a wider dispersion than ribbon tweeters. Pair that with integrated 1200watt subs and you've got a speaker that dips down to 16Hz for $1249 each! We had a chance to demo them at CEDIA and we were very impressed!
