Triad Building, Portland, OR - Home of lean manufacturing.
Headline

In a world of cookie cutter products, Triad is the sole company designing and manufacturing a comprehensive line of high-end architectural loudspeakers. We don't look at our products as commodities, but rather as individual Unique Solutions to the problem of seamlessly integrating high-quality sound into a sophisticated living environment.

We believe you shouldn't have to settle for a generic "good enough" custom speaker when there is an innovative Triad product that is perfect for virtually any application. There are other critically important reasons for choosing Triad. We believe the best custom audio products on earth will not make you happy unless the system is properly conceived, designed, installed, and explained.

This is why Triad offers exemplary factory support, and is sold only through the best custom installation dealers; respected CEDIA members. We will provide you with the best experience for your investment before, during, and years after the sale.

 

Why Buy Triad?

Triad manufactures the only full line of high end custom loudspeakers.
Triad offers the most complete array of applications-based custom speaker solutions, designed for specific usage, and without compromise. We believe custom speakers should be the same high quality as the very best audiophile speakers, but they should blend unobtrusively into your environment.

Made in America.
95% of Triad speaker models are designed and manufactured in our modern facility in Portland, Oregon. We do not simply assemble product; we design and build it. And utilizing lean principles, we are able to manufacture efficiently in America to provide an outstanding value and compete with the rest of the world.

Triad is available only from the best custom audio/video dealers.
Triad partners with the top CEDIA and PARA dealers with the experience, expertise, and professionalism to give you the best results, visually and sonically. 

Exemplary service and support.
Triad sales consultants and service technicians provide valuable service and design assistance. Call 800 666 6316, and one of our custom design professionals will answer your call personally. At Triad, "your call is important to us" is a fact; not an indifferent recorded message.

Company image.
Triad’s has had a long-term vision since 1982, treating customers and dealers honestly and with integrity. Our continuing steep growth has been mostly by word of mouth and with the reputation of being the benchmark custom speaker brand. We value substance over gimmick.

Custom built in batch sizes of one.
Triad products are literally made fresh daily, following the lean manufacturing model of no inventory of finished goods. Your speakers are made for you, and they always represent the most current version. Products typically are built within four days, and are then shipped to your dealer via FedEx service.

Premium components.
Triad uses the highest quality drivers and crossover components for the absolute best performance and value. Many of our European drivers are used in speakers far more expensive.

Unparalleled construction quality.
Our fully-engineered, solidly-braced enclosures are built like bank vaults, with the best materials and extensive damping for the cleanest sound at all playback levels. Our sophisticated manufacturing techniques allow for intricacy and close tolerances. Where other companies use wood screws, we use expensive brass fittings. Where they use particleboard, we use MDF, the most uniform and inert cabinet material.

Different versions of the same speaker.
As many as four versions of each model exist, to allow for the best sound without compromise, regardless of where the speaker has to be installed. All Triad speakers feature the same type of full enclosure for the best performance and isolation. An InWall version of a Triad model will sound like the OnWall, InCeiling, or InRoom version, allowing you the ultimate in placement options while maintaining superior sound quality.

Custom paint and veneer options.
Because we make what we sell, we can offer dozens of stock finishes, as well as the ability to match paint or wood finishes using the sample you provide. Veneer finishes are book-matched, with even the back and bottom of speakers finished. InWall and InCeiling paint matching allows speakers to be heard yet not seen when installed.

Custom enclosure sizes.
Triad speakers can be slightly or radically modified to fit very specific custom applications if need be. One-off designs can be done as well.

Accurate Sound.
Our philosophy is to design and build the most accurate speakers possible, regardless of type or application. Our speakers do not have a signature sound; they are neutral and faithful to the source, which is another way of expressing “high fidelity.”

Exceptional reliability.
Because we only use the finest components, we are able to offer a 10-year limited warranty on our speakers.

A pleasant surprise.
It is our mission to exceed your expectations and provide you with the best sound, best appearance, and the best value. You may not think you can tell the difference, but we give you more credit than that. You will be ecstatic with the results of your Triad installation.
