Triad Introduces OmniSub Line of Entry -Level Powered InRoom Subwoofers - Aims to Set the Value Standard for Powered InRoom Subs in the Custom A/V Channel

New from Triad: three entry-level, powered in-room subwoofers that incorporate the build-quality, components and sound characteristics of the company's higher-end products.

Portland, OR - February 2, 2010 - Custom manufacturer Triad Speakers, Inc. today introduced three entry -level, powered in -room subwoofers. The Mini, Bronze and Silver OmniSubs are fully -featured, attractive and compact packages that deliver high output with deep bass extension. At $500, $650 and $800 MSRP each, these new solutions represent Triad's most affordable in -room subwoofers to date, complementing the company's recently introduced comprehensive line of DSP Subs.


The compact InRoom Mini OmniSub makes use of a long -excursion 8 -inch driver and a 200 -watt BASH (Bridged Amplifier Switching Hybrid) amp. The InRoom Bronze OmniSub taps a 10 -inch driver and 300 -watt BASH amp with the InRoom Silver OmniSub utilizing 12 -inch driver and robust 500 -watt BASH amp. All OmniSub enclosures are heavily braced and acoustically inert - a trademark of all Triad subs for almost thirty years.

According to Triad's Director of Sales and Marketing Paul Scarpelli the company chose BASH amplifier technology because it generates almost no heat, and is extremely efficient, with low energy consumption, even when tasked hard. "The amps provide the sound quality of traditional Class AB amplifiers, but with the efficiency and low heat of Class D amplifiers,"
says Scarpelli.

"The goal of the OmniSub line is to provide Triad dealers with more cost -efficient, yet high -performing powered sub solutions for applications such as bedrooms and smaller living rooms, as well as home theater venues. We are confident that in doing so we will broaden our reach in the marketplace while at the same time setting the standard for performance, features, and value. We believe that dealers will quickly take notice," says Scarpelli.

Other notable features include signal -sensing power -on with adjustable sensitivity; user presets (Normal, Music, Cinema, Night); boundary compensation for optimum performance regardless of placement; a simple parametric equalizer; gain and delay adjustments, and both line level and speaker level inputs.

The OmniSubs are shipping to dealers now. For all media inquiries, please contact Paul Muto at paul@mutocomm.com or via phone at 631.849.4301.
