DRIVER DESIGN & ENGINEERING
Maintaining control over your design and manufacturing process is the only way to ensure perfection. For the ultimate in control, Paradigm builds its drivers in-house. Only by handcrafting each driver ourselves can they guarantee the consistency of their precision engineering, going beyond the industry standard to deliver superior high performance in each and every Premier loudspeaker built.
Active Ridge Technology (ART™): Premier features Paradigm’s patented Active Ridge Technology (ART) surrounds, made in-house and overmodled directly onto each woofer and midrange cone. This design achieves greater excursion, for a 3dB gain in output and 50% reduction in distortion. Crafted from injection-modled thermoplastic elastomer, ART surrounds are more durable and more reliable, ensuring a lifetime of superior sound.

X-PAL™ tweeter with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) 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. Patent pending.
Lightweight, extremely durable high-excursion Nomex spider design delivers a longer life of flexibility and performance. Nomex is 10-times stronger than industry-standard cotton-based spider material.
Super-strong die-cast baskets feature integrated heat sinks for higher power handling, for better bass, better dynamics, and less power compression.
