Paradigm Monitor Series 7 Subwoofers

696375.jpg

Paradigm introduced three new subwoofers featuring the same new streamlined aesthetics and smaller footprint that define the updated Monitor 7 Series Speakers. The new Monitor SUB 8, Monitor SUB 10 and Monitor SUB 12 subwoofers also boast a number of trickle-down technologies from Paradigm's award-winning Signature and Studio Series subwoofers, ensuring better bass performance from a smaller, more conventional-looking package.

The Monitor SUB 8, Monitor SUB 10 and Monitor SUB 12 are engineered around the same single-driver design. The SUB 8 and SUB 10 both feature a mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a corrugated Santoprene surround (8 and 10 inches, respectively) first seen in the company's ultra-high-end Signature Series, a 1-1/2″ 4-layer copper-clad aluminum voice coil, Nomex spider, 4.5 lb ferrite magnet and an AVS die-cast heat sink chassis. The SUB 12 turns up the heat with a 2-inch 4-layer copper-clad aluminum voice coil, 6.5 lb ferrite magnet, along with dual Nomex spiders and AVS die-cast heat sink chassis.

All three subs feature internal Ultra-Class D amplifers delivering 900 watts Dynamic Peak/300 watts RMS Sustained power and boast low frequency extension of 19 Hz (SUB 8), 17 Hz (SUB 10) and 16 Hz (SUB 12) (DIN). The Monitor subs are wireless-ready; with the addition of Paradigm's PT-2 transmitter (sold separately), up to four Monitor subwoofers can be daisy-chained simultaneously.

Each sub in the line comes with an integrated USB port for PBK (Paradigm's Perfect Bass Kit) equalization (sold separately), which analyzes the subwoofer's response in a room and then sets the correct equalization parameters to obtain optimal sound, even with less-than optimal placement. Even when the finest subwoofer is placed perfectly, bass can sound bloated or boomy due to imperfect room acoustics. The PBK system measures the subwoofer from multiple positions in the room to highlight problem areas and calculate the correct EQ curve, resulting in pitch-perfect bass tailor made for the room.

Designed, engineered, and manufactured in Paradigm's state-of-the-art Toronto, Canada facility, the Monitor Series 7 subwoofers are the perfect complement to the newly launched Monitor Series 7 line of loudspeakers.
