PARADIGM REFERENCE SIGNATURE SUB 1 AND SUB 2 UNLEASH THE PERFECT STORM
Silent, hexagonal cabinets will redefine the audio industry’s performance standard for bass reproduction. 
TORONTO, CANDADA – October 1, 2009 – Paradigm Electronics Inc., an international leader in speaker design and manufacturing, introduces the Reference Signature SUB 1 and SUB 2 as the flagship models in its growing line of high-performance, smart subwoofers. The SUB 1 and SUB 2 models are more powerful than any other Paradigm speaker to date; they are completely unique both in their internal elements and aesthetic qualities; and they represent the best in audio bass technology and highest performance characteristics in the subwoofer category.
 
The SUB 1 and SUB 2 cabinets offer virtually no shaking despite moving vast amounts of energy via the drivers and 3000W “Kilomax” amplifier platform which is capable of 4500W when connected to a 208V or 240V line. The SUB 1’s six high-excursion, low-distortion 8-inch (10-inch for SUB 2) woofers are arranged in stacked pairs and geometrically aligned so the resultant force vectors, producing up to 7,500 watts of dynamic peak power, cancel each other out. Even a full glass of water placed atop the SUB 1 or SUB 2 will barely ripple. This radial alignment concept is successful because the pressure waves inside the cabinet generated by each driver as the cone and voice coil move in and out are effectively cancelled, leaving a silent and distortion-free cabinet.
 
Another benefit to the new models’ woofer design is their compactness. In the SUB 2, six 10-inch drivers move as much air as a pair of 15-inch or a single 21-inch woofer in a smaller, more compact form factor. Handsome finishes and eye-catching but not overbearing design elements support the ability of these subwoofers to be hidden in plain sight. With the added flexibility conferred by Paradigm’s Perfect Bass Kit (PBK) room correction, staggering performance is assured in just about any listening area.
 
Advanced scientific features such as AC line voltage detection, power consumption monitoring, and a universal power supply on the SUB 1 and SUB 2 ensure that the subwoofers are fed a diet of clean, unadulterated energy.

Are these different than the hex shaped ones you saw at CEDIA?  The price is a LOT higher than I remember that interview stating, and definitely out of my league...


I lost my signature and all I got was this Nutter t-shirt

I can imagine hearing reports of earthquakes in areas where there normally are none.
