For over 30 years, Paradigm has set the precedent for innovation and technology in loudspeaker manufacturing. The new Prestige Series builds on this history by combining new technologies with smart engineering that provides astonishing performance at an incredible value – all completely crafted in their Canadian facility.
Prestige continues the re-invention of premium speaker design and engineering with the patent-pending 25S Surround/Stereo Speaker. Not your every-day surround speaker, Prestige 25S delivers an exemplary musical experience – whether from a single speaker playing stereo sound, or creating the ultimate 7.1 Home Theatre system.
Smart Engineering, Flawless Aesthetics
The innovative rear-mounted tweeter and driver housing completely hides front baffle hardware. Drivers are shock mounted to a reinforced 1-inch MDF baffle, which reinforces rigidity and cabinet strength while eliminating unwanted cabinet resonances. The low profile, acoustically transparent grille attaches magnetically for a stylishly stealthy front presentation.
Patented† Active Ridge Technology (ART™)
Paradigm’s patented† ART™ surrounds, made in-house and overmolded 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-molded thermoplastic elastomer, ART™ surrounds are more durable and reliable, for a lifetime of superior sound.
Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens
New distinctive, concentric perforated lens protects the delicate X-PAL™ tweeter dome and acts as the Phase Plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies for smoother, extended high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output.
