For many years, there has been a difference of opinion as to how to make the most effective surround sound speakers: Dipole or Bipole. Up until now, Triad has built the speakers as Dipole with both drivers out of phase with each other, so as to create a null at the listening position.

Dolby Atmos is becoming a bigger and bigger factor in theater design, and Triad has been selling a tremendous number of Atmos systems. Dolby recommends Bipole (both speakers are firing in phase with each other) in systems that require conventional front firing speakers for rear and side speakers.

Effective immediately, and unless specified differently, all Triad surround speakers will be built and shipped as Bipole.

For those of you that have existing Dipole speakers in your systems, these can be changed to Bipole. Contact Triad or your local dealer for more information.
