Triad Speakers’ made-in-the-USA line-up is growing, as the company has announced an expansion of its Dolby Atmos loudspeaker offering.

The new line-up includes Dolby Atmos-enabled height modules in its Bronze and Silver series, which can be used in conjunction with LCRs to achieve the full effects of the 3D audio format.

The module’s function is to direct overhead effects towards the ceiling, which is then reflected towards the listener.

While Triad envisions users matching the new height modules with its own LCRs, it admits that installers are free to use any other front channel speakers.

To achieve the immersive moving audio experience of Dolby Atmos without using separate in-ceiling speakers to capture overhead effects, installers will need to use either in-room main channel LCR speakers with integrated height channels, like Triad’s In-Room 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 optimised to bounce sound effects off the ceiling: The Bronze is comprised of four two inch drivers; the Silver incorporates four three inch drivers. 

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. 

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 wide variety of colours and finishes including custom paint-matched or veneered to match the décor of the room.
