The CI Pro series is Crafted in Canada and takes performance to the next level with patented technology, step-up components, and hallmark Paradigm sound quality, plus a new bezel-free micro-perf grille with an incredibly discreet aesthetic.
The CI Pros P80-R in-wall/in-ceiling speakers are suitable for use in a large variety of listening environments, featuring wide, uniform dispersion and can be installed almost anywhere. Although these speakers sound great out of the carton, they will sound even better once they are broken in. Operate them for several hours before you listen critically [High-frequency drivers use ferro-fluid that can thicken at temperatures below 10° C (50° F)].
Innovative Technology makes the Difference
X-PAL™ tweeter with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens that protects the delicate pure-aluminium tweeter dome and acts as the Phase Plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies for smoother, extended high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output.
Paradigm tweeter designs are cooled by the original ultra-stable Ferrofluid, made exclusively by Ferrotec. Ferrofluid is a colloidal suspension of magnetic Nano particles in a liquid carrier with low volatility and high thermal stability.
Superior Mineral-Filled Co-Polymer Polypropylene Bass/Midrage Cones Oversized computer-optimized ferrite magnets and high-power motor structures deliver detailed midrange performance with clean, extended bass. Even movie dialog is incredibly clean and clear.
Paradigm’s patented† Active Ridge Technology (ART™) surrounds, made in-house and overmoulded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds. Crafted from audiophile-grade injection-moulded thermoplastic elastomer, ART™ surrounds are more durable and reliable, for a lifetime of superior sound.
Super-strong die-cast aluminium baskets feature integrated heat sinks for higher power handling, for better bass, better dynamics, and less power compression.

Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology
RED™ Technology (patent pending) is a die-cast aluminium tweeter housing that significantly reduces negative effects of diffraction while improving critical midrange frequencies. The irregular edges and off-centre placement break up standing waves typically found around the woofer cone and tweeter housing of traditional designs. Additionally, the aluminium structure dissipates unwanted heat which increases power handling and allows a lower crossover frequency, improving sound and reducing distortion.
Advanced Features for a Solid and Secure Installation
Die-cast aluminium chassis, baffles (in-wall models only), and clamps add strength and rigidity for better bass and midrange, along with a more durable installation.
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.
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.
Nickel-plated, spring loaded binding posts feature a larger wire hole to accept higher-gauge wire or banana plugs.
Premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors, capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.
