by Paradigm

Founder is no ordinary loudspeaker. We ve treated every part, large and small, as if it were the most crucial piece of the whole. Every component has been thoroughly researched, designed, engineered, and tested. Not only are the drivers completely new, so is their mounting hardware, the cabinet s internal structure and shape, and even the feet. By leaving no element unaddressed, we ve created something that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

Ultra-High-Excursion CARBON-X Unibody Bass Driver The Founder s Bass driver is a 6 (152mm), 7 (177mm) or 8 (215mm) Ultra-High-Excursion Unibody CARBON-X™ Cone, over-molded Gen3 Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surround with Vertical Mounting System, Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation and a 1.5 high-temp multi-layered voice coil with ventilated Apical™ former.

ADVANCED Shock-Mount™ Feet Founder Floorstanding Speakers include Advanced Shock-Mount™ Feet which decouple the cabinet from the floor, not just once, but twice, for extremely effective vibration decoupling. Interchangeable hardware is included for both carpet and hard surfaces. The feet can be adjusted from above to level the cabinet with ease.

ADVANCED Shock-Mount™ System The Founder Series midrange and bass drivers are mechanically decoupled from the front baffle by our Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System. This special mounting hardware uses an elastomer suspension to prevent any transfer of vibration from the driver to the cabinet, and from the cabinet to the driver. By eliminating resonance, the driver is free to render sound purely and efficiently with no audible distortion and maximum clarity.

Proudly Crafted in Canada The Founder Series is completely designed, engineered, and built at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility just outside of Toronto, Canada. It's made by people who love great audio (just like you). From the hand-chosen, specially engineered components and materials, to the precise workmanship of the non-resonant cabinets with their beautiful premium-grade finishes, Founder Series is truly hand-built for performance. Sure, we could say "Made in Canada," or "Manufactured in Canada." But we believe that building loudspeakers is an art. Everyone at Paradigm shares a passion for crafting speakers, and it's from this intense passion that "Crafted in Canada" was proudly born.

Partnered with the NRC Paradigm is partnered with Canada s world-renowned NRC in ongoing research to reveal the true nature of sound and human hearing. Findings influence design and performance specs, resulting in a uniquely realistic listening experience, backed by sound science.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
