RESPECT FOR THE ORIGINAL SOURCE…

For over 30 years, Paradigm has set the precedent for innovation and technology in loudspeaker manufacturing. The 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 Paradigm’s Canadian facility.

Craftsmanship

Prestige cabinets are designed, engineered and Crafted in Canada, featuring sharp lines with clean aesthetics. Each cabinet is flawlessly wrapped with real walnut hardwood – the Black Walnut is a smooth satin finish with distinctive wood figuring.

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 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.

† US patents: D654,479S and 8,340,340B2

Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens

The 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.
