If you still prefer your whopping bass in the traditional style, Canadian manufacturer Paradigm has a couple of true boom boxes for you.

The company recently intro’d a pair of architectural subwoofers, but went back to the bread and butter for the Sub 12 and Sub 15 that are sure to breathe bassy life into any audio-intensive theater.

The Sub 12 features a 12-inch driver, with low-frequency extension down to 16 Hz; on the Sub 15 there’s a—you guessed it—15-inch driver, and low frequency down to 12 Hz.

The models essentially act as high-performance replacements to the company’s “retired” Servo-15 and Seismic 12 subs, with higher playing ceilings and other improvements, Paradigm notes.

Among the specs:

  • Mineral-filled co-polymer polypropylene cones
  • RCS Resonance Control Rips
  • Dual 3” high-temperature aluminum voice-coil design
  • Proprietary Airflow Ventilation System cooling
  • 35-pound magnet assemblies
  • Dual Ultra-Class-D amplifiers
  • Dual-sided FR-4 rated glass/epoxy circuit boards
  • RCA and balanced XLR inputs
  • Auto on/off

There’s also a USB port for future upgrades, and also for use with Paradigm’s Perfect Bass Kit (PBK-1) room compensation enhancer.

Both subs are ready to rock your theaters now, with retail tags of $1,999 for the Sub 12 and $2,799 for the Sub 15.
