About The Paradigm Defiance X15 Subwoofer

Everything is maximised with the Paradigm Defiance X15 subwoofer. Output is massive, thanks to heavy-duty, internally-braced cabinets, and Active Ridge Technology (ART) for maximum driver-excursion. Massive SPL levels are coupled with precision control, intense detail, and vanishingly low distortion. Completely Crafted in Canada, Defiance X series subs are top performers in their class.

The Paradigm Defiance X15 packs a ton of amplifier and driver technology into a sophisticated powerhouse for maximum low frequency impact. Pound for ground-shaking pound, Defiance X delivers some of the very best bass performance in its class. The Defiance X15 features a 381mm (15") bass driver with patented ART surround controlled by a 900 Watts RMS (1,800W Dynamic Peak) Class D amplifier for deep bass down to 14Hz. It also features App control via a smartphone and Anthem Room Correction (ARC) is included.

Paradigm Defiance X15

NEW! App Controlled: Simplify setup & tuning with the free Paradigm Subwoofer Control App, available for iOS and Android devices. Adjust volume, low-pass filter, phase, deep bass and much more from the comfort of your listening chair. It features three preset listening modes, and lets you remotely run the Anthem Room Correction (ARC®) process.

Anthem Room Correction (ARC): Shape the bass to fit your listening space! ARC Technology is controlled via the free Paradigm iOS and Android smartphone app. Using the microphone in your mobile device or a specially calibrated Paradigm microphone (sold separately), ARC measures your space, compares it to lab standard responses using proprietary advanced DSP algorithms, and instantly removes performance-robbing anomalies. The result is easy to hear: realistically blended, accurately rendered deep bass. ARC gets great customer reviews because it delivers professional results at the touch of a button.

Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART): 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. Only available on Defiance X15, X12, and X10.

Optional Wireless Module: Place your subwoofer anywhere in your room, with no inconvenient cabling, and without sacrificing speed or performance. The Defiance WT Wireless Module (sold separately) features fast and clear 2.4 GHz dynamic frequency selection with instant error correction and a 50ft range.

Down Firing Ports: Tuned ports turn the floor into a tool for enhancing bass response, allowing more flexible placement options with no risk of turbulence or distortion.

Built to Perform: Reinforced cabinet construction and vibration killing driver design delivers deep, detailed bass.

Defiance subwoofers deliver pure power, unleashed by clean, efficient amplification. Listen to Defiance subwoofers for yourself and step-up your bass experience.

In The News

“When bass is properly reproduced, it is the foundation in music and movie soundtracks,” said Keith Dowd, Director of US Sales, Paradigm. “It’s easy to design a subwoofer that makes a lot of noise, but a subwoofer with vanishingly low distortion that sounds as good as a high performance speaker can only come from a company that knows how to design and build high performance speakers.”
