Seismic new sub from Paradigm16 June 2010
Despite measuring only 30cm across, the "little sonic bulldog" that is Seismic 110 offers 1kW of power. At the heart of the new sub is an ultra-low-distortion split-coil drive woofer coupled with an 850W RMS Ultra-Class D amplifier, which is capable of delivering 150W RMS continuous and a 2,550W dynamic peak.
The exterior shell is a die-cast monocoque design that forms an integrated compact package with the woofer tucked inside. The 10-inch woofer cone is capable of two inches of travel, while the dual spider suspension and FEA-optimised ribbed surround are said to "help keep things under control when the going gets loud". Meanwhile, the optional Paradigm Perfect Bass Kit (PBK-1TM)can analyse the Seismic 110’s response in a room, then set the correct equalisation parameters to obtain optimal sound.
Paradigm’s marketing manager, Mark Aling, commented: "The Seismic 110 captures all of the design and engineering talent we have in-house at Paradigm. This subwoofer is a true collaboration between our industrial, mechanical, electronic and acoustical design team; unlike many of the other subs, this product has no off-the-shelf parts but is custom built to showcase how form follows function."
