Aluminium Magnesium Ceramic (AL-MAC™) Tweeter with Exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens
AL-MAC™ is Paradigm’s unique blend of Aluminium, Magnesium and Ceramic materials; each of which contribute to the end goal of greater accuracy and realism. Their special properties contribute to the final product which is not only strong and lightweight, but embodies a natural anti-resonance to ensure the tweeter doesn’t just sound good “on paper” but truly sounds incredible in the real world.
Paradigm’s exclusive CARBON-X™ Cone combines lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncolored frequency response. Drivers feature long excursion voice coil motors for greater power handling and reduced power compression.
Advanced Shock-Mount™ System
Mechanically decouples the basket from the die-cast aluminium baskets from the specially formulated CARBON-X™ ingrained baffles reducing performance-robbing vibrations and resonances between the acoustic platform and the rest of the speaker. Without these resonances, all drivers are left free to deliver pure, unaltered sound with no audible distortion.
Patented† Active Ridge Technology (ART™) surrounds
Made in-house and over-moulded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds. † US patents: D654,479S and 8,340,340B2
Advanced Features for a Solid and Secure Installation
FEA-Optimised Ultra Rigid Cast-Aluminium Baskets feature integrated heat sinks for higher power handling, for better bass, better dynamics, and less power compression.
Rear Component Shielding protects internal parts from debris. The translucent polycarbonate material creates an installation that will not warp. Flat covers also make it easy to lie speakers down during the installation process without tipping.
Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology significantly reduces the adverse effects of diffraction while improving frequency response.
Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap.
Premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors, capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.
Nickel-plated, spring loaded binding posts feature a larger wire hole to accept higher-gauge wire or banana plugs.
Bezel-Free Micro-Perf Grilles. Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap.
Magnetically attached grilles: neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place.
