About The Paradigm Stylus 470-SM

The Paradigm Stylus 470-SM is the largest "stereo-input" model and will fill a fairly big area but is essentially designed for spaces where installing two or more speakers is not practical - for example an apartment. So if you like to have your music both inside and outside then rest assured Paradigm are the experts.

Whether you are relaxing in the garden, on the terrace, or by the pool, the experience is enhanced by music. Why limit the enjoyment of your hi-fi to the house when there are great opportunities to enjoy the music in the great outdoors? All models we sell have specially treated cabinets to resist harmful UV rays, banana/bare wire type connections and a swivel bracket. Contemporary Stylus speakers are an easy, stylish and surprisingly affordable way to bring the Paradigm high-performance sound you enjoy indoors…outdoors. They’re weather resistant — so install them outdoors and leave them there.

Paradigm Stylus 470-SM Outdoor Speakers

Solo Performer: Stylus 470-SM

  • Two PTD Pure-Titanium High-Frequency Domes offset at 30° angles
  • Dual Voice-Coil ICP Injection-Molded Co-Polymer Bass / Midrange Cone

Stereo Sound: Stylus high-performance “SM” (stereo/mono) speakers offer rich pure-fidelity dual-channel sound from a single speaker. Their unique Dual-Directional Soundfield provides wider-than-normal dispersion, a particularly important consideration outdoors where there are no walls or ceiling to contain sound. These speakers are ideal in small outdoor areas less suited to a stereo pair, or where a single speaker is preferred.

In larger areas, multiple “SM” speakers eliminate sound imbalances that occur with stereo sound as people move around, or are seated closer to one speaker than the other. For details on all placement options provided by Stylus “SM” speakers, please contact us here at Audio Trends.

Pure-Titanium Dome Tweeters: Superior PTD Pure-Titanium Domes with Unique Controlled WaveGuide Faceplates deliver smooth, clear, extended response. Ferro-fluid cooled and damped.

Injection-Moulded Polypropylene Cones: Superior ICP Injection-Molded Co-Polymer Polypropylene Cones. Oversized magnets and superior motor structures ensure a very detailed, authentic midrange.

PolyGlass Reinforced Enclosures: Superior PolyGlass Mineral-Filled Reinforced Enclosures. Fully sealed (no ports) for protection against the outdoor environment … even under adverse weather conditions!

Brave The Elements: Weather, Water, UV-Resistant Aluminum Grilles stainless steel / brass hardware, gold-plated binding posts and stainless steel / polymer mounting brackets.

Our Take

Did you know that Paradigm loudspeakers are still designed, engineered, and crafted just outside Toronto, Canada? It’s been that way since 1982. That’s when co-founders Jerry VanderMarel and Scott Bagby decided to, eh-hem, change the prevailing industry paradigm. They wanted to build high performance loudspeakers right near their home. They wanted to custom-design their speaker components based on science, not speculation. And they wanted to make them available at prices that everyone would appreciate. We totally agree with the philosophy and although we sell other brands that have similar ethics, long-time customer loyalty has seen the brand a favourite with our customers for decades. 

The Stylus 470-SM is a large three driver, 2-Way outdoor speaker (two tweeters) and is ideal where you have an odd-shaped entertainment area and find placement difficult and can only use one speaker or alternatively have the space but demand beautiful sound across the zone or zones. If you have ever been to Canada in the Winter - as several of the Audio Trends staff have - then you will appreciate how cold it gets. All Paradigm speakers have been tested in this harsh environment and will withstand the extremes experienced here in Australia with ease. At 93dB efficiency (above average) you will need at least a 50 Watt RMS - preferably about 80 Watts or more) per channel amplifier, not so much for power as the 470-SM's only handle 80 Watts RMS max in Mono (40+40 Stereo) but to minimise amplifier distortion. They come with speaker wire binding posts which will accept decent cable. Our recommendation would be QED 79 strand as it is reasonably priced, can be run over long distances (upto 20 metres) and is resistant to oxidisation.
