It’s too bad that most flat-panel TVs don’t sound as pretty as they look. To match that pretty picture, Paradigm has just announced two additional on-wall speakers for its Reference Signature line.
The Signature W5 and W5 C each provide that oomph to your entertainment setup, without cluttering up that big, beautiful picture. In fact, these units actually add to the style.
Both the Signature W5 and W5 C (for center channel) are a couple of tall boys, measuring more than three feet in length. This is to accommodate their six drivers. They also boast the company’s P-Be Pure-Beryllium dome tweeters and Co-PAL cobalt-infused pure-aluminum bass and midrange cones, as well as Paradigm’s Reference Signature Series v.2 technologies.
“People will be blown away by the performance of the W5s,” said Mark Aling, Paradigm’s marketing manager. Hey—they’ve never disappointed before.
Both include mounting supports, and are available in cherry or natural birdseye maple inlay with contemporary silver cabinet, or Piano Black inlay with dark gray cabinet.
Paradigm’s Reference Signature W5 and W5 C are shipping now, for $2,999 each.
