Triad PDX offers an exceptional solution for a seamless installation. Each speaker can be installed at once with zero tools, or you can remove the speaker and install the cradle with its optional backbox and grille, which allows you to return and place the speaker post-construction. All of this is done without compromising the industry-leading sound and build quality for which Triad is known.

Experience every audible detail with precision technology and build quality. The interwoven Kevlar and Carbon fiber with PVA coating command higher control of cone breakup, while the aluminum shorting ring further fine-tunes sound with tighter bass and enhanced distortion reduction. The fusion of top-tier material selection and design distinction of Triad PDX has yet to be seen in architectural audio.

Everything about Triad PDX centers around the purest sound quality possible. The 1" Pivoting Teteron dome tweeter with oversized surround increases piston area, resulting in higher sensitivity and reduced motion, providing smoother frequency response. All 5 Series PDX tweeters also include an additional copper cap and dual Neodynium magnets in the motor system, which linearizes/stabilizes the variance in inductance—reducing distortion with better transient/impulse performance.

 

Triad Series 5 Family shotCLASSIC TRIAD VOICING

Triad PDX speakers use top-shelf crossover components and are tuned like all other Triad speakers to give them their coveted Triad sound. They can even seamlessly integrate with other Triad speakers due to their Timbre matching, allowing you to mix and match speakers within the series to meet the needs of each room while providing identical tonal qualities throughout the home.

The tweeter adjustment switch helps you deliver detailed and clear sound in any space. It helps compensate for both an overly reflective or overly damped room by either cutting or increasing the tweeter level to improve performance, while the woofer adjustment allows you to fine-tune the speaker's low frequencies depending on the interaction between the speaker and the room.

Not all job sites are secure during the construction phase, leaving components left onsite susceptible to theft. With the Triad PDX 2-piece baffle/speaker module assembly, you can remove the speaker module for safe storage offsite until the site is secure while the Frame/HVAC cover and grille remain installed.
