Protect your investment with aPlatinum Coverage warranty plan:
There are no products for the condition you selected. Please make another selection.
This instrument or product has been carefully played/used and returned to us in
virtually new condition, however its packaging may not meet the standards set by
the factory. Also, it no longer carries the manufacturer's warranty. If you're looking
for a virtually new instrument in possibly less-than-perfect packaging, this is
a great value. We feel so strongly you'll like what you see, we're including our
60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee on instruments and 30 days on accessories, to this used product making it a no-risk purchase.
Very Good: This instrument or product has been carefully played/used and shows few,
minor signs of use. In most respects it looks and performs like new and may be considered
equivalent to display units found in retail stores. Its packaging may not meet the
standards set by the factory and it no longer carries the manufacturer's warranty.
Condition 2 products are a terrific value and you can buy with confidence knowing
our 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee on instruments and 30 days on accessories applies to this used product.
This instrument or product is in good working condition but has one or more cosmetic
flaws beyond those of a Condition 2 product. These flaws are typical of an instrument
or product that's seen normal wear and tear, including incidental scratches, chips,
dings, dents or other imperfections. It performs just as well as a Condition 1 or
Condition 2 instrument/product. Its packaging may not meet the standards set by
the factory and it no longer carries the manufacturer's warranty. Condition 3 is
a great choice if you're looking for performance and value and not as concerned
with cosmetics. You can buy with confidence knowing our 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee on instruments and 30 days on accessories
applies to this used product.
This instrument or product is not in working condition and needs repair, but can
be brought back to full functionality with replacement of parts or some skilled
repair work. If you are a do-it-yourselfer or know a skilled repair person this
is a terrific value. Condition 4 products are sold AS-IS: they do not come with
a manufacturer's warranty and are not returnable.
This instrument or product has been damaged beyond what we judge is reasonably repairable.
It's best used for spare parts or to practice repairs on, and at this price Condition
5 products are sold AS-IS: they do not come with a manufacturer's warranty and are
Accidental damage, normal wear and power surges are no longer an issue with these comprehensive and affordable plans. We even pay to ship your gear for repairs. More details.
Covers much more than the original manufacturer's warranty:
Limit of Liability: The least of the cost of (1) authorized repairs, (2) replacement with a product of similar features, (3) reimbursement for authorized repairs or replacement or (4) the price that you paid for the product.

Trident Audio HG3 3-Way Active Studio Monitors with Adjustable Mid/High SectionThe Trident HG3 Close-Field Studio Monitors feature a rather uniquely designed cabinet that helps to reduce or even eliminate some common problems that can occur in other monitor systems. Problems like limited dispersion, Doppler distortion, cabinet resonances; edge diffraction and other problems are reduced by the H3’s high and mid frequency cylinder that rotates independently form the main subwoofer cabinet.Bass ResponseThe use of a bass port in a monitor can extend the usable response of a low frequency, but below port resonance, the speaker becomes uncontrolled and will flap wildly in conventional oriented systems. The trident HG3 system eliminated this problem by using a controlled electronic roll-off below the speaker’s usable response.Separate sub woofers create additional problems by introducing phase cancellation at crossover, and exciting unwanted room nodes – eliminating the advantages of near filed monitoring. Separate sub woofer box placement is a hit or miss proposition, guaranteed to cause problems in poorly treated rooms.The H3 uses long throw, dual-voice coil sub woofers in each speaker box, and optimal tuning, to smoothly extend the response to below 35Hz in a very small enclosure. Each sub woofer uses two high-powered amplifiers to insure clean, distortion free power. Further, the port is located outside the path of all active speaker components to insure freedom from Doppler distortion at very low frequencies. Below 90Hz, the HG3 bass response is essentially omnidirectional. From 90Hz up to the crossover point of 320Hz, the bass response narrows to about 180n degrees. Above 320Hz, any large diameter speaker’s dispersion narrows, and the frequency response becomes ragged and uneven, which is not a good thing.Midrange ResponseThe most critical range in any monitoring system is the midrange. That is because the midrange frequencies are where the frequencies of the voice reside, as well as the main frequencies of a guitar’s sound, and the overall detail of music. Most two-way systems split the vocal range in the middle and assign part of the vocal to the woofer, and the other part of the critical vocal range to another speaker. That leaves part of the vocal being modulated by the pumping bass, and the other part is bouncing off the ends of the cabinet, creating edge diffractions, The result us smeared midrange, bad stereo imaging and poor off axis response. The Trident H3 uses crossover points set a t 320Hz and 3.5kHz to eliminate those problems. The unique cabinet design takes care of the rest.The CylinderThe midrange speaker is mounted in an isolated, 6” diameter, damped, inert cylinder with a 1/2” thick closed-cell wall that eliminates edge diffraction and woofer interaction. The cylinder also houses the 1-1/8” silk dome tweeter, its crossover, plus the mid and tweeter level controls. A separate 60-Watt amplifier drives the cylinder mid and treble components. The unique rotating cylinder design let’s the listener position the critical direction components exactly as needed, without having to move the main cabinet into a precarious balance position, regardless of the distance between cabinets. The electrical connections are made through the ends of the cylinder and can be turned in any direction, continuously, without damage. In fact, rotating the cylinder simply cleans the contacts.The AmplifierThe Trident HG3 power amplifier section is made up of three high-powered MOS amplifier modules, noted for their low distortion, wide bandwidth, and low noise levels. A unique “muting circuit” prevents thumps at turn on/off. Two amplifiers are used to power the woofer section, and a separate amplifier is used for the mids and highs. Overall Distortion is typically around 0.05% and the noise level is typically below -104dB. A unique warning LED is built into the front panel of the Trident HG3 that chances from green to red as you begin to approach audible distortion levels.
