Paradigm Electronics Inc. has introduced the latest version, series v.2, of its Paradigm Reference SA Series of in-wall/in-ceiling speakers.
In addition to the advancements in speaker technology across the lineup, the series includes two new models: SA-15R-SM and the SA-15R-30. The SA-15R-SM is a stereo/mono model featuring the company’s proprietary Dual-Directional Soundfield, producing rich dual-channel sound from a single speaker. The SM model is ideal in smaller areas, or rooms where a stereo pair would not be suitable or is not desired, Paradigm says.
The SA-15R-30, with its high-frequency PhaseArm, features Paradigm’s proprietary Guided Soundfield system, allowing the homeowners to guide the sound exactly where they want it in a room. The PhaseArm positions the high-frequency driver closer to the plane of the ceiling, resulting in improved phase response as well as improved dispersion, both on and off axis, according to the company.
New technology features of the SA Series v.2 include: G-PAL gold-anodized pure-aluminum domes, S-PAL satin-anodized pure-aluminum bass/midrange cones, gold-anodized solid-aluminum phase plugs, aluminum or copper-clad aluminum-wire voice coils, precision crossover networks and Paradigm-designed PosiGrip binding posts.
Pricing for the SA Series’ new models:
- SA-15R-SM – Single speaker system with stereo L/R inputs. 3-driver, 2-way
in-ceiling/in-wall: $449 each
- SA-15R-30 – Two-driver (mounted at 30 degrees relative to ceiling), 2-way
in-ceiling: $549 each
