Anyone eager for an affordable, high-end surround speaker will want to hear Paradigm Surround 1 or Paradigm Surround 3. These speakers add size and dimension to the musical soundstage, which envelopes you in non-localized sound. Their design ensures maximum placement flexibility – even in rooms where dimensions and configuration are not ideal.
Paradigm’s patent pending Phase Aligning (PPA™) Lens Distinctive perforated lens in front of the tweeter and midrange drivers increase and smooth output without coloring the sound, while also protecting the drivers from getting damaged.
X-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure Aluminum Mid-Bass Cones: Provide high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, super extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions. (Paradigm Surround 3)
Mineral Filled Polypropylene Mid-Bass Cones: Oversized computer-optimized ferrite magnets and high-power motor structures deliver detailed performance with clean, extended bass. (Paradigm Surround 1)
Paradigm is partnered with Canada’s world-renowned NRC in ongoing research to reveal the true nature of sound and human hearing. Findings influence design and performance specs, resulting in a uniquely realistic listening experience, backed by sound science.
