About the Paradigm Prestige 1000SW Subwoofer
The Paradigm Prestige 1000SW Subwoofer is not only the perfect match for Paradigm’s Prestige range of speakers, it is also a fantastic subwoofer in its own right and deserves to be on your short list when considering subs in this price range...even though it weighs a massive 41kg!
Prestige 1000SW subwoofer utilises a single high excursion 305mm (12") driver in a sealed enclosure with built-in Ultra-Class D™ power amplifier to boost deep, powerful bass.
Louder, Lower Frequency, Less Distortion: You know Paradigm builds the most powerful subwoofers and the new Prestige 1000SW is no exception. Designed, engineered and hand-built in Paradigm’s Canadian facility, the new Prestige subwoofers feature a clean design with front mounted controls including a Tone Sweep to instantly locate room rattle buzz, PBK On/Off and much more.
Solid Footing: Prestige Subwoofers ship with rubber feet for hardwood floors, along with 2-inch carpet spikes to ensure your subwoofer won't move wherever you place it in your room.
Prestige is an Authentic, Handcrafted Piece of Art: 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.
Powerful amplification and advanced technology drives Prestige Subwoofers to another performance level. With front mounted controls and integrated room correction with PBK, you'll get gut-wrenching bass in any environment. Included is a super efficient Ultra-Class-D Amplifier that delivers around 1,000 Watts of sustained power to completely control the bass driver. Unlike cumbersome and heavy transformers used in line frequency power supplies, the Paradigm Prestige 1000SW uses noise reducing networks and an advanced control circuit resulting in high current and ultra quiet operation. Paradigm has also maximised processor (DSP) efficiency and audio output to deliver a consistent and musical bass without audible distortion – even when played at the loudest level. One way they achieve this is by employing a super-strong die-cast basket that features an integrated heat sink for higher power handling, better bass, and better dynamics and less power compression. The lightweight, extremely durable high-excursion Nomex spider design delivers a longer life of flexibility and performance. Nomex is 10-times stronger than industry-standard cotton-based spider material.
High Excursion Bass Driver
Maintaining control over the design and manufacturing process is the only way to ensure perfection. For the ultimate in control, Paradigm builds its drivers in-house. Only by handcrafting bass drivers can they guarantee the consistency of their precision engineering, going beyond the industry standard to deliver superior high performance in each and every Prestige Subwoofer built. The X-PAL™ brushed pure-aluminium woofer cones combine lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncoloured frequency response. Matching dust caps ensuring more uniform dynamic response and a cleaner, modern aesthetic. Paradigm’s patented Active Ridge Technology (ART™) surrounds, also made in-house and over moulded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds. Crafted from audiophile-grade injection-moulded thermoplastic elastomer, ART™ surrounds are more durable and reliable, for a lifetime of superior sound. Dual Voice Coil design is not new technology and we're pretty sure it was Tannoy in the UK that came up with the idea. It works by winding multi-layer voice-coils over high-temperature Kapton formers to provide exceptional motor strength. Extruded-Aluminium Centre Heat Sinks provide internal forced-air cooling to force heat away and increase power handing while reducing distortion.
