Hi all

I am running triton references and am considering getting another sub

People with think I am mad because the subs on the triton are pretty good already.

I believe I heard that the triton references have subs equivalent to the super sub xl.

First question. Would the 12inch xxl be a worthy upgrade to stock triton references in terms of sub output?

I don't care about music and this will only be used for movies and I was considering JTR rs1 subs but shipping and taxes to Australia make it cost prohibitive compared to rrp xxl


Second question. Should goldenear make a dual 15 inch "super sub Reference" or is something like that coming? (hopefully)

Hi, Steveo

No, I don't think you're mad at all for thinking about adding a SuperSub XXL! I did exactly that with my setup which already had Triton Ref fronts and T1 surrounds, all LFE connected. I too wondered how much of a bass kick I would get. Answer, A LOT. Not sure where you would be able to or want to place the sub, but adding it in back to bolster the surrounds would be a good fit I think.

As to a SuperSub Ref someday, I'd love to see that also. Not sure what driver size would be best, but larger than the 12" drivers in the XXL hopefully, and utilizing all the Ref level speaker upgrades including focused field magnet structure etc.

Happy listening!

I think you're "mad" because the subs on the Triton [Reference] are *phenomenal* already. B)
