A DISAPPEARING ACT THAT'S TOUGH FOR THE COMPETITION TO FOLLOW!
It’s not often that Paradigm makes a fuss about removing something from a speaker but this is one of those times. The whole point of ceiling speakers is in the aesthetic. When customers choose Paradigm in-ceilings, it’s a given they want to hear great sound, they just don’t want to see it. We complied, making our virtually invisible in-ceiling bezels even less visible across the Signature Series in-ceiling lineup. The odd time your customer looks up at the ceiling, there won’t be much to see … which is exactly what they’re looking for!
NEW! Thinner, Sleeker Bezels with more transparent scrim for a cleaner, disappearing aesthetic with increased sonic transparency.
NEW! Low-Density NLC™ Non-Limiting Corrugated Thermoplastic Elastomer TPE Surround, trickle down technology from our Signature Series. FEAâ€ˆoptimized and overmolded onto the polypropylene cone;
NEW! Motor Structure includes a three-split voice coil, thicker top plate and larger ceramic/ferrite magnet.
In concert with the new motor structure (see below) we’ve achieved double the power in these models! + 3dB! The speaker now plays louder. The thermoplastic elastomer is ten times more effective than standard elastomers in damping vibrations and resonances and the corrugations increase peak-to-peak excursion. While we would have loved to have effected this change across models, the Guided Soundfield model was the only model physically able to accommodate the size and quantity of corrugations needed and the larger motor structure.
The new structure further improves low-frequency sound distortion at high excursion while maintaining the much-lauded frequency response of the previous generation. The speaker can play significantly louder now, but without a hint of compression/distortion.
Full-Perimeter Bracket Design. Unlike typical mounting ears, brackets cover the full diameter or height and width of the speaker chassis to effectively sandwich and strengthen the area around the mounting hole.
State-of-the-Art G-PAL™ Gold-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes. Ferro-fluid cooled and damped. Exceptionally rigid, low-mass domes with treated textile suspensions ensure extremely uniform and instantaneous high-frequency response.
State-of-the-Art S-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Cones. High stiffness-to-mass ratio. Outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass and tremendous freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions.
State-of-the-Art Mineral-Filled Co-Polymer Polypropylene Bass Cones. Highly damped and tremendously rigid for tight, well-defined and deep low-frequency response with a weight and authority that does justice to music and movies.
High-Pressure Ultra-Rigid™ Die-Cast Aluminum Chassis and Mounting Brackets (selected models). Dramatic reduction in resonances and standing waves. Aluminum chassis also serves as a very effective heatsink.
High-Strength GRIP™ Glass-Reinforced Injection-Molded Polymer Chassis and Mounting Brackets (selected models). Increased strength and the rigid design reduce the problems associated with structural flexibility mentioned earlier in this catalog.
Paradigm has made every effort to ensure accuracy of information, but cannot be responsible for typographical or photographic errors. Refer to actual cut-out templates packed with each speaker before attempting to cut any holes.
