Product Description

Paradigm Prestige 1000SW

The Paradigm Prestige 1000SW Subwoofer is not only the perfect match for Paradigm’s Prestige range of loudspeakers, 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.


Prestige 1000SW subwoofer utilizes a single high excursion 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.

Advanced Technology

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.

  • NEW Efficient Ultra-Class-D™ Amplifier: More than 90% efficient, Prestige 1000SW subwoofers are designed to completely control the bass driver with 1,000 Watts of sustained power.
  • Ultra-Low Noise Transformer: Unlike cumbersome and heavy transformers used in line frequency power supplies, Prestige 1000SW uses noise reducing networks and an advanced control circuit resulting in high current and ultra quiet operation.
  • Digital Signal Processing: Paradigm has maximized processor efficiency and audio output to deliver a consistent and musical bass without audible distortion – even when the played at loudest level.
  • Super-strong die-cast basket features an integrated heat sink for higher power handling, better bass, and better dynamics and less power compression.
  • 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.

  • NEW 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, 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: Wound on high-temperature Kapton formers, the multi-layer voice coils provide exceptional motor strength.
  • 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.
  • Extruded-Aluminium Centre Heat Sinks: Provide internal forced-air cooling to force heat away and increase power handing while reducing distortion.
