The finest speakers in the world are a medium for the music, an open window on the original performance. They take us from the mundane to the magical, beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary. They are a reflection of character. Not the sonic character of the speaker, since speakers claiming to be the finest must be devoid of acoustic personality. Rather, the finest speakers are an intimate unfolding of the songwriter's mood, the composer's message, the director's vision. They allow us to feel the music, hear the magic and see through the mind's eye into the heart of the performance.
Paradigm Â® Reference Signature. A higher level of transparency.
The Reference SIG-1.5R-30 is part of Paradigm's ultra high-end custom in-wall/ in-ceiling speakers. The SIG-1.5R-30 features Paradigm's Guided Soundfield System in which the bass midrange driver is recessed in the chassis while the tweeters fire at a thirty degree angle from the ceiling. This system allows users to guide sound toward one specific area in a room. The Reference SIG-1.5R-30 features pure beryllium domes with cobalt infused anodized pure aluminum ferro-fluid cooled cones ,and dual neodymium magnets. Both beryllium and cobalt are more rigid than aluminum. The combination was meant to improve damping and overall sound quality. The mounting system is a combination of die-cast GRIP chassis and mounting brackets which are glass reinforced injection molded polymer. These Ultra-Rigid chassis are designed to strengthen the wall around the mounting hole to help eliminate the undesirable resonance and standing waves caused from the vibrations around the speaker. The crossover network of the SIG-1.5R-30 is designed to meet with military specifications.
