    Because you love music more than your neighbours.


    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. 


    Connected to a 240-volt line, SUB 1 delivers an astonishing 1,700W of continuous power and 3,400W at peak - in a cabinet that could be mistaken for a very fine piece of furniture.


    With not one, but six cutting-edge drivers in each sub, transient information is conveyed with pristine clarity and perfect precision. Dynamics come through with lightning-fast speed and a power so shattering that it must be heard to be believed. Bass reproduction is eerily accurate and detailed, in large part a result of Paradigm's unique Vibration-Canceling Design Architecture.


    Bass Design Specifications:

    • Six powerful 8" drivers
    • Vibration-canceling design architecture

    • Mineral-filled co-polymer polypropylene cones
    • High-pressure die-cast aluminium chassis with AVS (Airflow Ventilation System Cooling)
    • Overmolded non-limiting corrugated TPE surrounds & Nomex cloth spiders
    • 76 mm (3") 10-layer long-travel aluminium voice coils
    • Extruded aluminium centre heatsink
    • Resonance control ribs (RCR)
    • Computer-optimised ceramic (hard ferrite) magnet assemblies with balanced field geometry
    • Magnetic pole piece

    These subs are movers, not shakers … Massive Air Movement, Massive Output, Vibration Free.


    Two cutting-edge Ultra-Class-D amplifiers, designed, engineered and manufactured by Paradigm in North America, are housed inside the SUB 1’s compact hexagonal cabinet.


    Amp Design Specifications:

    • Switching power supplies, for simultaneous control of all six bass drivers
    • 3400W dynamic peak power; 1700W (850W each amp) RMS sustained power
    • Low-noise, ultra-high-power compact transformer
    • Full-bridge Ultra-Class-D design output stage
    • Precision components & dual-sided FR-4 rated glass / epoxy circuit boards
    • Proprietary amplifier temperature sensors
    • Novel adaptive PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) power processor
    • Paradigm’s digital signal processing (DSP)
    • 16mm ultra-rigid aluminium amplifier panel

    "The SUB 1 brought home performance that bested

    what I could get in the theater and never disappointed.

    Just make sure to fasten everything in the room down when you decide to let it rip."
