How do you get "Reference" quality performance (in other words: phenomenal output with breathtaking clarity, superb extension and speed!) out of an in-wall subwoofer without it tearing your wall to shreds with the first big explosion or tympani crescendo?
Serious high-output subwoofers produce real energy. However, the majority of in-wall subwoofers out there can't produce serious bass, so vibrational energy isn't an issue. Not so with the RVC-12SQ in-wall subwoofer. The RVC-12SQ is like a dog off the leash. Free from the rigid constraints of conventional in-wall designs, backed by Paradigm Reference technology behind the drivers and powered by the Paradigm
X-300 or X-850 Ultra-Class-D amplifier (sold separately), the RVC-12SQ is free to dig deeper for new levels of articulate, soul-stirring bass while chasing new heights in performance. The result is a quality and quantity of bass that rivals our leading freestanding subwoofer designs.
Despite all this power, the RVC-12SQ's footprint is minimal. It mounts into a standard 2"x 4" stud wall. Thought you'd heard it all? Not quite!
Paradigmâs RVC-12SQ enables system contractors to remove the most hulking piece of A/V equipment from the floor and install it discretely in the wall, without sacrificing performance.The RVC-12SQ can easily be installed in a normal two by four stud wall with an optional BX-12SQ back box for best results, or retrofitted into existing spaces. Paradigmâs Perfect Bass Kit (PBK-1) can also be added via the X-850 amplifier as a room correction system. The PBK-1 uses a specially calibrated microphone and advanced algorithms to compute a target frequency response for the subwoofers to yield optimal in-room sound. RVC-12SQ provides unrivaled articulate bass performance from a nominal footprint mountable in a standard two-by-four-foot stud wall. Installation of an optional back box and Paradigmâs Perfect Bass Kit subwoofer room correction system make RVC-12SQ the most powerful and precise in-wall subwoofer available.
Conventional in-wall subwoofers excite wall vibrations through a reactive force opposite to that created by the movement of the voice coil. We turned things around. In the design of the RVC-12SQ the two woofers fire in phase, in opposite directions. This results in a physical cancellation of wall vibrations.
Advanced Dual Side-Mounted 4" (102 mm) x 14" (356 mm) Mineral-Filled Co-Polymer Polypropylene Cones: Highly damped and tremendously rigid, the cones provide tight, well-defined low-frequency response with an authority that does justice to the most challenging music and movie material.
Pleated LCSâ¢ Linear Corrugated Thermoplastic/Rubber Over-Molded Surrounds featuring Ultra-Long-Travel Suspensions: Exceptional peak-to-peak cone movement that is completely free of edge-hole distortion - every bass note sounds distinct. High-Power 1" (25 mm) 6-Layer Voice Coils: Wound on aluminum formers with high-temperature coating in a multilayer configuration for greater stability and support during cone excursion.
FEA-Optimized 1/2-lb (0.19 kg) Super-Neodymium Magnet Structures with Symmetrical Focused Field Geometry: Generate a truly enormous magnetic forcefield in the gap.
One-Piece High-Pressure Ultra-Rigidâ¢ Die-Cast Chassis/MDF Mounting System sandwiches and strengthens the wall, greatly increasing its rigidity. Controls flexing and ringing and since aluminum is non-magnetic, stray magnetic losses are eliminated. Additional details above.
