Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 215-997-4300 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

World-class performance! Our Signature products deliver best-in-class performance for music and home theater with bold aesthetic.

A Disappearing Act That's Tough For The Competition To Follow!

It's not often that Paradigm makes a fuss about removing something from a speaker but this is one of those times. The whole point of ceiling speakers is in the aesthetic. When customers choose Paradigm in-ceilings, it's a given they want to hear great sound, they just don't want to see it. We complied, making our virtually invisible in-ceiling bezels even less visible across the Signature Series in-ceiling lineup. The odd time your customer looks up at the ceiling, there won't be much to see ... which is exactly what they're looking for!

Product Features

Thinner, Sleeker Bezels with more transparent scrim for a cleaner, disappearing aesthetic with increased sonic transparency.

Low-density NLC Non-Limiting Corrugated thermoplastic elastomer TPE Surround, trickle down technology from our Signature Series. FEA optimized and overmolded onto the polypropylene cone.

In concert with the new motor structure (see below) we've achieved double the power in these models! + 3dB! The speaker now plays louder. The thermoplastic elastomer is ten times more effective than standard elastomers in damping vibrations and resonances and the corrugations increase peak-to-peak excursion. While we would have loved to have effected this change across models, the Guided Soundfield model was the only model physically able to accommodate the size and quantity of corrugations needed and the larger motor structure.

Motor Structure Includes a Three-Split Voice Coil, thicker top plate and larger ceramic/ferrite magnet. The new structure further improves low-frequency sound distortion at high excursion while maintaining the much-lauded frequency response of the previous generation. The speaker can play significantly louder now, but without a hint of compression/distortion.

ABOUT OUR IN-WALL MODELS FOR THOSE WHO ARE WONDERING! Thinner bezels are not an aesthetic issue in in-walls, so bezels were left untouched.



Full-Perimeter Bracket Design. Unlike typical mounting ears, brackets cover the full diameter or height and width of the speaker chassis to effectively sandwich and strengthen the area around the mounting hole.

Cutting-Edge P-Be Pure-Beryllium Domes. Exotic beryllium! The metal of choice for truly ultimate levels of high-frequency performance. A stiffness-to-density ratio superior to metals such as aluminum, titanium and even diamond. Performance is clear, uncolored and completely uncompromised.

Cutting-Edge Co-PAL Cobalt-Infused Pure-Aluminum Cones. Combine high stiffness-to-mass ratio with superior internal damping for an even greater degree of accuracy. Advanced Nomex® cloth suspensions and butyl rubber surrounds promote superb and extended excursion. Cutting-Edge Mineral-Filled Co-Polymer Polypropylene Bass Cones. Superior stiffness-to-mass. Precision-engineered for higher sensitivity, power handling and ultra-low levels of distortion. Massive optimized ceramic ferrite or neodymium magnet / motor structures with focused-field geometry.

Combination Ultra-Rigid Die-Cast Chassis and GRIP Glass-Reinforced Injection-Molded Polymer Bracket. Supremely rigid structure reduces resonances and standing waves. The use of an aluminum chassis allows the chassis to function as a heatsink.

Paradigm has made every effort to ensure accuracy of information, but cannot be responsible for typographical or photographic errors. Refer to actual cut-out templates packed with each speaker before attempting to cut any holes.

Crafted in Canada

Designed, engineered, and fully Crafted in Canada, by people who love great audio (just like you). From the precise workmanship of the non-resonant cabinets to their beautiful premium-grade finishes, Prestige is truly hand-built for performance.

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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.
