Snap One has announced the launch of the Triad PDX Series of architectural speakers to provide Partners with a solution that pairs the premium audio performance that Triad is known for with a simplified installation experience made possible by Push Lock by Swarm technology.
Coined “PDX” in homage to the Portland Airport — the city in which each speaker is custom-designed and engineered — the series includes 13 speakers and 19 accessories, including optional custom-colored grilles, rear enclosures and pre-construction brackets.
“The PDX series marks the first Triad launch since the Snap One and Control4 merger in 2019, and it truly embodies the benefits of both companies coming together,” says Alex Zaliauskas, director of product management for speakers at Snap One. “We have incorporated the installation features that Partners love about Signature by Episode speakers and leveraged Snap One’s resources to build a premium, better performing Triad speaker with Push Lock technology — all while staying true to the Triad brand through engineering, sound quality and performance.
Triad PDX uses high-performance materials and the components like carbon fiber, Kevlar, Teteron, dual voice coils, chemically etched metal components, and more. The infusion of Kevlar into carbon fiber for the woofer, to create a premium audio experience, is unique to Triad PDX, according to Snap One.
To make installation a breeze for Partners, Triad PDX uses Push Lock, an exclusive toolless mounting solution specifically designed for Snap One. The proprietary installation technology — which is employed in Signature by Episode speakers — allows for an upgrade path to a more premium product by securing the speaker with the simple press of a button for fast and secure installation.
The two-piece baffle/speaker module assembly allows Partners to remove the speaker while leaving the cradle and grille in the ceiling or wall — preventing the speaker from being stolen or damaged during the construction process and allowing for HVAC pressure testing for certification of occupancy.
The series also includes helpful accessories like construction brackets that offer flexibility during a new build or install process, rear enclosures for all models that can control air volume and sound propagation to adjacent rooms, and replacement grilles for all models that can be painted and custom-ordered to match the project aesthetics.
What’s more, the Triad PDX series is the first Triad line to launch in local stores and worldwide in the U.S., Canada, EMEA and APAC regions. As such, Triad Authorized Dealers will be able to count on omnichannel shopping options, among other benefits.
