Prestige 75F is Smart Engineering
Paradigm Prestige 75F harnessing cutting-edge new technologies, originally developed for Prestige series but now rolled out across a whole range of products. Like next generation X-PAL™ pure-aluminum drivers.And a Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens protects the delicate dome and blocks distortion for smoother high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output.
Prestige is an Authentic, Handcrafted Piece of Art
Designed, engineered, and fully crafted in Canada, by people who love great audio (just like you). Perhaps because of that, Prestige 75F benefits from precise workmanship in non-resonant cabinets and beautiful premium-grade finishes. Prestige is truly hand-built for performance.
Prestige cabinets are designed, engineered, and crafted in Canada. They enhance audio performance because they’re constructed of heavy duty, non-resonant ¾-inch MDF with strategic interior bracing and an massive 1-inch baffle! Prestige 75F cabinets feature sharp lines, clean aesthetics and premium-grade finishes.
The innovative rear-mounted tweeter and driver housing completely hides front baffle hardware. Prestige 75F drivers are secured with Paradigm’s SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System to a reinforced 1-inch baffle. Rigidity and cabinet strength are maximized while unwanted cabinet resonances, that interfere with the sound, are virtually eliminated. The low profile grilles attach magnetically for a stylishly stealthy front presentation that looks fine with grilles on or off.
Prestige 75F benefits from a rigid polished stainless steel and aluminum base that isolates and defeats performance-altering vibrations. The bases feature reversible foot options for hard and soft flooring.
Prestige cabinets are offered in beautiful premium-grade finishes: Walnut and Black Walnut timber veneers have a smooth satin finish with distinctive wood figuring. Midnight Cherry and Piano Black premium finishes cost more than the satin finishes but feature luxurious hand-rubbed, high-gloss look that reflects its environment.
Innovation & Technology
For over 30 years, Paradigm has set the precedent for innovation and technology in loudspeaker manufacturing. It’s for that reason that Prestige 75F combines new technologies with smart engineering that provides astonishing performance at an incredible value — all completely crafted in their Canadian facility. Prepare to be impressed .
Tweeter Design & Engineering
Prestige X-PAL™ tweeters are Paradigm’s next generation design. An advanced pure-aluminum tweeter dome has enhanced high frequency performance of a computer-designed phase plug. Highs are clear and accurate with pinpoint imaging. Prestige’s rear-mounted tweeter design hides ‘nuts and bolts’, presenting a seamless wave-guide and aesthetic.
A new Finite Element Analysis (FEA) optimized pole piece concentrates the magnet’s power for maximum efficiency and lightning fast response.
Tweeter designs are cooled by the original ultra-stable ferrofluid, made exclusively by Ferrotec. As well as cooling the voice-coil, ferrofluid is a colloidal suspension of magnetic nano particles so it transfers magnetic energy right-up to the dome. It maximizes efficiency, cools and damps resonance in one fell swoop!
Driver Design & Engineering
Maintaining control over the design and manufacturing process is how Paradigm ensures perfection. For the ultimate in control, they build their next generation X-PAL™ drivers in-house in Canada. By crafting each pure-aluminum tweeter, midrange and bass driver themselves they guarantee precision engineering. Paradigm go beyond normal industry standards to deliver superior performance in each and every loudspeaker they build.
New X-PAL™ woofer and midrange drivers employ pure-aluminum cones. Aluminium combines lightweight stiffness with a greater degree of accuracy for a smooth, uncolored frequency response. Matching concave dust caps ensure more uniform dynamic response and a clean, modern aesthetic.
Paradigm’s patented Active Ridge Technology (ART™) surrounds are made in-house and over-molded directly onto each cone. Because of this, Prestige 75F woofers achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) standard woofers. Crafted from audiophile-grade injection-molded thermoplastic elastomer, ART™ surrounds are more durable and reliable, for a lifetime of superior sound.
Lightweight, extremely durable high-excursion Nomex spiders delivers a long life of flexibility and performance. Nomex is 10-times stronger than the industry-standard spider material.
Prestige 75F woofers, by design, have high power handling, better bass, better dynamics, and low power compression. They use strong die-cast baskets with integrated heatsinks, over-spec, high-power, 1.5-inch voice coil motors with Kapton formers, high-temp wire and durable Nomex spiders. No aspect of the Prestige 75F bass unit design is left to chance.
The crossover design of the Prestige 75F is reference-level. It includes high voltage film and bi-polar capacitors, heavy gauge inductors and superior ceramic stand-off resistors for consistent performance provide seamless blending of bass, bass-mid and high frequencies for a realistic performance.
SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System – a butyl-rubber driver fastening system in which critically placed isolation inserts and gaskets decouple drivers from the speaker’s enclosure, resulting in unparalleled reduction of driver/enclosure interactions and their associated performance robbing resonances and vibrations.
