PARADIGM SUB-2 SUBWOOFER
The most difficult task in designing SUB 1 and SUB 2 was not just to have these subs play lower and louder than any other subwoofers in the world, but to do so in a size that wouldn't dominate the average living room, and in a cabinet that could be mistaken for a very fine piece of furniture.
And then there are the mind-boggling specs. SUB 2 plumbs the depths to 7 Hz with bloodcurdling output: 112 dB at 10 Hz, 126 dB at 60 Hz (in room). Connected to a 240-volt line, SUB 2 delivers 4,500 watts of continuous RMS Sustained power and a Frankenstein 9,000 watts of Dynamic Peak power through its unique Power Factor Correction system. Talk about bringing your music and movies to life! SUB 1 is no slouch either, delivering 1,700 watts of continuous power and 3,400 watts at peak.
Details3-Kilowatt Amplifier Platform. Designed, engineered and manufactured by Paradigm in North America, the SUB 2’s state-of-the-art Ultra-Class-D™ amplifier design premiered to rave reviews and great success in the Signature SUB 25. Motivated by their success, our engineers went back to work, tweaking, testing and modifying the ampifier’s circuit board and software. The result is the most powerful subwoofer amplifier we (or anyone else for that matter) have ever produced. We call it the “Kilomax” design because when connected to a 240-volt line, it delivers a monster 4,500 watts of RMS Continuous power and a Frankenstein 9,000 watts of Dynamic Peak power.
No Power Transformer. The output stage is Direct-Connected™ to the power line to provide maximum power.
Advanced Output Stage. Increases switching speed and efficiency. Unlike conventional Class-D designs which use the slow built-in diodes of the output MOSFETS, our Ultra-Class-D™ design steers circulating currents to ultra-fast diodes (ten times faster!).
