  • Paradigm SUB 25

    I just saw a blurb about the new Paradigm SUB 25 in the "Coming Attractions" in the April 2009 Home Theater magazine (page 22).

    As usual there has been an AVS thread on this for months.

    Some info:

    "Ultra-Class D" 3000 watts RMS with a peak of 7500 watts.
    120- or 230-volt circuit
    Power Correction technology
    15 inch driver
    3 in Peak to Peak.
    USB port?
    Retail of $3999.

    Specs

    I found this link at AVS.

    Any thoughts from Craig or others?

    Woof, that's pricey. Wonder how it booms :)

      Peope have pointed out that for $4K there will be serious brick & mortar as well as ID subwoofer competition.
      Both for single units as well as multiples of cheaper/smaller subs.

      I think there are some aspects of this sub which make it interesting to dissect the features.

        Yeah, for 4k I could have 2 PB13 Ultras plus their new sub EQ and $300 left over. This would have to be an insanely good sub to top that.

          ... vs. SVS

          Right on!:greedy:

          I wonder how much the new SVS 16 inch subs will be.

          - 13.5" woofer with an overhung VC/motor (the Ultra 13.5" woofer is underhung)
          - cube shaped with 16-17" outer dims
          - side accent panels like the M-series and the PB12-Plus
          - magnetically retained metal grille like the PB12-Plus and PB13-Ultra

          SB16-Ultra:

          - 1000W DSP with front-mounted bezel/display
          - wireless connectivity
          - 16.5" woofer with an underhung VC and radial neodymium motor
          - cube shaped with 19-20" outer dims
          - all veneer or gloss finishes like the PB13-Ultra
          - magnetically retained metal grille like the PB13-Ultra

          The DSP essentially replaces the analog controls, and does not necessarily imply an auto-EQ solution. While auto-EQ certainly exists on some of the DSP chipsets we're using, it almost assuredly won't be on the Plus model, but it may be an extra-cost option on the Ultra model.

          While the auto-EQ is quite powerful (multi-band with multi-position algorithms and much better than the typical single band solutions floating around), it still doesn't have the processing power of the AS-EQ1, which will remain the optimal external EQ solution in any event.

            i would be comparing this to other sealed subs not ported ones. As for sealed i would probably go with two submersives over this... way more cone area, ICE amps, obviously the finish isnt as good but seaton is probably as good if not better than paradigm engineers :)
