Triton Tower Speakers Overview
The Triton Series Tower Speakers are high-performance loudspeakers, with the top four models including a built-in powered subwoofer. All the Triton Towers are engineered for superb performance in both high quality two channel stereo systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music systems. Their sleek, elegantly curved and tapered design is not only gorgeous but is important from a performance perspective as well. Performance-wise, the Triton Towers all deliver boxless three-dimensional imaging, which reviewers have hailed as “mystical”, “magical” – and, best summed up by the dramatic, “had us believing that the entire surface of the front wall was covered with speakers.”. Likewise, the powerful, deep subwoofer bass blends perfectly with the silky smooth, utterly transparent midrange and high frequencies, putting many dramatically more expensive speakers to shame.
The powered subwoofer sections in each Triton Reference, Triton One.R, Two+ and Three+ incorporate a high power GoldenEar digital amplifier. The amplifier’s DSP design not only yields extremely linear and low distortion response, but also dynamically controls operating parameters for optimum performance. The amp drives up to three front-mounted quadratic subwoofer bass drivers which are coupled to multiple side-mounted quadratic planar infrasonic bass radiators. The result is awe-inspiring bass, which delivers both musical subtlety as well as room-shaking authority. The advantages of building the subwoofers into the Tritons are many. First, of course, this eliminates the need for additional subwoofer boxes in the room. But more important are the performance advantages. By engineering the subwoofer as an integral part to the speaker, we get far superior integration and blending than can be achieved with separate subwoofers, even when using two. The two subwoofers in a pair of Tritons couple better to the air in the room, helping to better deal with the room’s eigenmodes and smooth out response. Of course, the dual subwoofers are also intrinsically more powerful and couple together synergistically for more truly exceptional bass.
The hallmark of all GoldenEar speakers, the Triton Tower Speakers all utilize our High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter design. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion-like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. Greater efficiency, lower distortion, improved dynamics and superbly detailed sound are the result of this amazing technology. And every Triton Tower utilizes our amazing spider-leg, cast-basket mid/bass drivers with proprietary computer optimized cone design that assures smooth, extended response.
The Triton Towers’ striking, but harmoniously minimalist design, can fit nicely into a great variety of decors while going almost unnoticed. Their sleek, narrow baffle, sophisticated look also helps the speakers create truly magnificent 3D imaging with tremendous depth, height and width that extends well beyond the loudspeakers themselves. As with all GoldenEar speakers, development work is conducted at our Arnprior, Canada engineering facility utilizing our full-size anechoic chamber, which is an exact duplicate of the chamber at the NRC in Ottawa Canada, in combination with intense critical listening.
Visually, the flagship Triton Reference and the Triton One.R offer a strikingly beautiful upgrade to the classic Triton styling, with a gorgeous hand-rubbed piano gloss-black lacquer finished one-piece monocoque cabinet. Sleek, statuesque and refined, the Triton Reference is simply a gorgeous statement piece that will excite listeners with its dynamic visual presence, as well as its extraordinary sonic performance.

The Triton Two+, Three+ Five and Seven Towers are beautifully finished with an elegant black designer cloth, piano-black base and top cap.
Triton Three+ Tower Speakers
The Triton Three+ incorporates the same advanced technologies and delivers state-of-the-art performance remarkably similar to its bigger brothers. The Triton Three+ is literally a smaller version of the award-winning Triton One and Triton Two+. It is the perfect solution for listeners looking for a more compact loudspeaker that offers equally superb performance for both high-quality two-channel systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music systems.
Like the Triton Two+, the Triton Three+ incorporates technologies developed for the Triton One. Its built-in powered subwoofer (a technology first pioneered by GoldenEar principals Sandy Gross and Don Givogue) includes an integral 800 watt GoldenEar ForceField digital/DSP controlled power amp driving an active front-mounted long-throw 5″ x 9″ quadratic subwoofer driver. This is coupled to two opposing, inertially balanced 6-3/4″ x 8″ quadratic planar infrasonic passive radiators which are located on the sides, near the floor, in order to take full advantage of boundary coupling. There is one of the same 4.5″ high-definition spider-leg, cast-basket MVPP™ drivers as used in the Triton Two+, along with the same GoldenEar signature High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter. Performance-wise, the Triton Three+ delivers the same boxless three-dimensional imaging as the bigger Tritons. Likewise, the powerful, deep subwoofer bass blends perfectly with the silky smooth, utterly transparent midrange and high frequencies, putting many dramatically more expensive speakers to shame.
Triton three+ tower with built-in 800-watt powered subwoofer
Like the Two+, the Triton Three+ incorporates the built-in powered subwoofer technology first pioneered by GoldenEar principals Sandy Gross and Don Givogue. In this case, there is an integral 800-Watt digital/DSP controlled power amp driving an active front-mounted long-throw 5″ x 9″ quadratic subwoofer driver. This is coupled to two opposing, inertially balanced 6.75″ x 8″ quadratic
planar infrasonic passive radiators which are located on the sides, near the floor, in order to take full advantage of boundary coupling.
There is one of the same 4.5˝ high-definition cast basket MVPP™ drivers as used in the Two, along with the same GoldenEar signature High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter.
Performance-wise, the Triton Three+ delivers the same boxless three-dimensional imaging as the Triton Two+, which reviewers have hailed as “mystical,” “magical” — and, best summed up by the dramatic reviewer’s rave,“had us believing that the entire surface of the front wall was covered with speakers.” Likewise, the powerful, deep subwoofer bass blends perfectly with the silky smooth, utterly transparent midrange and high frequencies, putting many dramatically more expensive speakers to shame.
GoldenEar’s™ Second Generation Triton Two+ and Triton Three+ Towers
GoldenEar’s™ Triton Towers have set the audio world on its proverbial ear with extraordinary sound quality, elegant styling and unequalled value. They have earned an incredible series of awards and honors all around the world. Tritons are the latest signature creation of Sandy Gross, whose award winning loudspeakers have been impressing and delighting reviewers and listeners for over 40 years. Incorporating cutting-edge technologies like High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeters, advanced technology drivers with our highly evolved and sophisticated bass-loading technology, linear-phase fully balanced crossover networks and inertially-balanced quadratic planar infrasonic radiators, they are, in the words of Stereophile’s Robert Deutsch, “the holy grail of audio that we all seek.” Tritons will absolutely bring all your music and movies to life!
“Both models could move and handle like European race cars … the Two+ and Three+ played faster-with greater detail, presence and agility. They shed more light on the music … Two impressive high-end loudspeakers at a very comfortable price.”
– Herb Reichert, Stereophile
Now, GoldenEar is pleased and proud to announce the second generation Triton Two and Three, the Triton Two+ and Triton Three+, which incorporate many of the new technologies and refinements developed for the One, along with the successful application of all of the additional experience that we have gained over the years and in the process. As we focused on the major development project to bring the original Triton Two and Triton Three up to Triton One’s sonic standards, this is the path that we took: examining the myriad of details, some very significant and some less so, in order to optimize as many as possible to bring us to our lofty goal. Simply put, listening will clearly and instantly reveal how well we have succeeded. Initial listening by noted critics
and important reviewers has been exceedingly positive, and the consistent response has been surprise and shock at just how closely the sonic character and voicing of the new speakers approaches that of the Triton One.
