At first glance, the new Triton Two speakers from GoldenEar Technology might seem familiar, even if the company name is not. The speakers are tall and slim, mostly covered in a black grill, and use active woofers augmented with passive radiators. If The Triton Twos seem like something Definitive Technology would make, that's no coincidence. GoldenEar Technology is a new company created by Definitive Tech founers Sandy Gross and Don Givogue.
The Triton Two speakers borrow some design inspiration from the Definitive BP and Mythos series, and advance the concept further. The slim, tapered cabinet houses a GoldenEar designed 1200 watt DSP controlled digital amp which drives two 5"x9" subwoofers, with side-mounted 7"x10" radiators providing enhanced bass response. In between the two 4.5" midrange drivers is the big story - a proprietary High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter. Frequency response is rated at 16Hz - 35kHz, though in typical Definitive Tech style, the lower number represents the absolute limits of response, rather than usable in-room bass response. The GoldenEar Technology Triton Two speakers are priced at $1,249.99/ea.
