Triad Speakers is expanding loudspeaker offerings to include Dolby Atmos enabled height modules in its Bronze and Silver series. Used in conjunction with LCRs to achieve the full effects of Dolby Atmos, the module’s function is to direct overhead effects towards the ceiling, which is reflected towards the listener. While ideally mated with matching Triad LCRs, the modules can be used with other front channel speakers.
To achieve the immersive moving audio experience of Dolby Atmos without using separate in-ceiling speakers to capture overhead effects, it is necessary to use either in-room main channel LCR speakers with integrated height channels (i.e. Triad’s InRoom Bronze or Silver LR-H speakers) or Dolby Atmos enabled height modules used in concert with LCRs.
Each Triad module consists of an upward firing top array optimized to bounce sound effects off the ceiling: the Bronze is comprised of four 2-inch drivers; the Silver incorporates four 3-inch drivers. Each module aesthetically complements its InRoom Bronze or Silver LCR counterpart. The module either sits atop the LCR or is placed in close proximity appropriate for its performance such as in a cabinet or on a wall.
In 2014, Triad introduced its first integrated Dolby Atmos loudspeaker solution, the InRoom Bronze LR-H. Last year the company upped the ante with the even higher-performing version, the InRoom Silver LR-H.
The Triad Dolby Atmos enabled height modules are passive, therefore require Dolby Atmos Audio Video Receivers or Preamp-Processors/Amp combinations to power them. The Bronze and Silver modules are available in a variety of colors and finishes including custom paint-matched or veneered to match the décor of the room.
