Par­a­digm’s New De­fi­ance Sub­woofers

Par­a­digm Elec­tron­ics Inc., global leader in speaker de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing, is proud to an­nounce their new De­fi­ance sub­woofers. Fea­tur­ing six sub­woofers in two se­ries (X Se­ries and V Se­ries), De­fi­ance sub­woofers de­liver pure power, un­leashed by clean, ef­fi­cient am­pli­fi­ca­tion.

De­fi­ance X Se­ries

Ev­ery­thing is max­i­mized with the new De­fi­ance X10 / X12 / X15 sub­woofers. Out­put is mas­sive, thanks to heavy-duty, in­ter­nally-braced cab­i­nets, and Ac­tive Ridge Tech­nol­ogy® woofer surrounds for max­i­mum driver-ex­cur­sion. Mas­sive SPL lev­els are achieved with pre­ci­sion con­trol, intense de­tail, and van­ish­ingly low dis­tor­tion, for cin­ema-qual­ity bass. Crafted in Canada, De­fi­ance X is the big­gest sub­woofer made on this con­ti­nent.

De­fi­ance V Se­ries

For intense bass per­for­mance with no gim­micks, De­fi­ance V8 / V10 / V12 sub­woofers are an amaz­ing value. Smaller foot­prints pack tons of tech­nol­ogy into a com­pact pow­er­house of low fre­quency im­pact. Pound for ground-shak­ing pound, De­fi­ance V de­liv­ers the best bass at an un­beat­able value.

“When bass is prop­erly re­pro­duced, it is the foun­da­tion in mu­sic and movie sound­tracks,” said Keith Dowd, Di­rec­tor of US Sales, Par­a­digm. “It’s easy to de­sign a sub­woofer that makes a lot of noise, but a sub­woofer with van­ish­ingly low dis­tor­tion that sounds as good as a high per­for­mance speaker can only come from a com­pany that knows how to de­sign and build high per­for­mance speak­ers.”

All De­fi­ance sub­woofers (ex­cept the V8) fea­ture app con­trol, An­them Room Cor­rec­tion (ARC®), and optional wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity.

Sub­woofer App Con­trol: Sim­plify setup & tun­ing with the free Par­a­digm Sub­woofer Con­trol App. The iOS and An­droid app con­trols vol­ume, low-pass fil­ter, phase, room gain, and much more from the com­fort of your lis­ten­ing chair. It fea­tures three pre­set lis­ten­ing modes, and lets you re­motely turn An­them Room Cor­rec­tion on and off.

An­them Room Cor­rec­tion (ARC): Shape the bass to fit your lis­ten­ing space! ARC Tech­nol­ogy is con­trolled via the free Par­a­digm iOs and An­droid smart­phone app. ARC mea­sures your space, com­pares it to lab stan­dard re­sponses, and in­stantly re­moves per­for­mance-rob­bing anom­alies. The re­sult is easy to hear: real­is­ti­cally blended, ac­cu­rately ren­dered deep bass. ARC gets great cus­tomer re­views be­cause it de­liv­ers pro­fes­sional re­sults at the touch of a but­ton. To pro­vide even more ac­cu­rate mea­sure­ments, De­fi­ance X sub­woofers in­clude an ex­ter­nal ARC mi­cro­phone com­pat­i­ble with ARC Mo­bile (for iOS and An­droid) and ARC-2 for PC.

Wire­less Mod­ule (Optional): All De­fi­ance sub­woofers (ex­cept the V8) can ben­e­fit from the De­fi­ance Wire­less Trans­mit­ter Sys­tem. The trans­mit­ter and re­ceiver mod­ules con­nect eas­ily and al­low users greater place­ment op­tions for the sub­woofer. De­fi­ance X sub­woofers el­e­vate woofer en­gi­neer­ing via pro­pri­etary Ac­tive Ridge Tech­nol­ogy (ART) Surrounds. The far­ther the driver can freely move, the deeper the bass it can gen­er­ate. Patented ART driver de­sign “over­molds” durable driver surrounds to al­low the far­thest pos­si­ble throw with­out dis­tor­tion or de­struc­tion. Greater ex­cur­sion re­sults in a mea­sured 3dB gain in out­put, with a 50% re­duc­tion in au­di­ble dis­tor­tion com­pared to drivers held back by stan­dard surrounds.
