Paradigm Defiance Subwoofer Offers Performance, Competitive Price
Paradigm has launched six new subwoofers as part of their Defiance series that are pound for pound the most affordable on the market considering their raw performance.
The six subwoofers are split between two series - X Series and V Series - that are separated by their footprint but have a lot of similarities including app control and Anthem Room Correction. ARC is important as many media rooms in a client's home can come in any shape or size making correction sometimes nearly impossible. Wireless modules are optional but can connect remotely to a number of placement options.
The Defiance X - X10 / x12 / x15 -series is the workhorse line, utilizing heavy-duty, internally-braced cabinets, and Active Ridge Technology woofer surrounds for maximum driver-excursion. Massive SPL levels are achieved with precision control, intense detail, and vanishingly low distortion, for cinema-quality bass. Crafted in Canada, Defiance X is the biggest subwoofer made on this continent.
For intense bass performance with no gimmicks, Defiance V8 / V10 / V12 subwoofers are an amazing value. Smaller footprints pack tons of technology into a compact powerhouse of low-frequency impact. Pound for ground-shaking pound, Defiance V delivers the best bass at an unbeatable value.
Defiance X subwoofers elevate woofer engineering via proprietary Active Ridge Technology Surrounds. The farther the driver can freely move, the deeper the bass it can generate. Patented ART driver design “overmolds” durable driver surrounds to allow the farthest possible throw without distortion or destruction. Greater excursion results in a measured 3dB gain in output, with a 50% reduction in audible distortion compared to drivers held back by standard surrounds.
The Defiance X Series starts at $1,499 for the 15-inch X15, $1,299 for the 12-inch X12, and $999 for the 10-inch X10. The Defiance V series starts at the 12-inch V12 for $649, 10-inch V10 for $549, and 8-inch V8 for $399.
