Paradigm Prestige 1000SW

Prestige 1000SW feature a single 12″ high excursion driver, sealed enclosure, built-in Ultra-Class D™ power amplifier, USB port, on board sweep, and PBK equipped for advanced room correction.



You know Paradigm builds the most powerful subwoofers and the new Prestige 1000SW and 2000SW are no exceptions. Designed, engineered and hand-built in Paradigm’s Canadian facility, the new Prestige subwoofers feature a clean design with front mounted controls including a Tone Sweep to instantly locate room rattles and buzzing, PBK On/Off and much more.

High Excursion Bass Driver:

X-PAL™ Pure-Aluminium Cone Woofers: combine lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncoloured frequency response. Matching X-PAL™ dust caps ensure a more uniform dynamic response and a clean, modern aesthetic.

Paradigm’s Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surrounds: Made in-house and overmolded directly to each cone, ART™ surrounds achieve greater excursions for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds. (US patents: D654,479S and 8,340,340B2)

Dual Voice Coil Design: Wound on high-temperature Kapton formers, the multi-layer voice coils provide exceptional motor strength.

Extruded-Aluminium Centre Heatsinks: Provide internal forced-air cooling to force heat away and increase power handing while reducing distortion.

Advanced Technology:

Efficient Ultra-Class-D™ Amplifier: More than 90% efficient, Prestige subwoofers are designed to completely control the bass driver for up to 2,000 Watts of sustained power.

Ultra-Low Noise Transformer: Unlike cumbersome and heavy transformers used in line frequency power supplies, Prestige 2000SW uses noise reducing networks and an advanced control circuit resulting in high current and ultra quiet operation.

Digital Signal Processing: Paradigm has maximized processor efficiency and audio output to deliver a consistent and musical bass without audible distortion – even when the played at loudest level.

Super-strong diecast basket features an integrated heat sink for higher power handling, better bass, and better dynamics and less power compression.

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.
