The Custom Installer's Smarter Choice.The CI PRO Series is manufactured in Canada and takes performance to the next level with patented technology, step-up components, and hallmark Paradigm sound quality.
Aluminum Magnesium Ceramic (AL-MAC™) Tweeter with Exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter Lens
AL-MAC™ is our unique blend of Aluminum, Magnesium, and Ceramic materials; each of which contribute to the end goal of greater accuracy and realism. Their special properties contribute to the final product which is not only strong and lightweight, but embodies a natural anti-resonance to ensure the tweeter doesn't just sound good "on paper" but truly sounds incredible in the real world.
Paradigm's exclusive CARBON-X™ Cone combines lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncolored frequency response. Drivers feature long excursion voice coil motors for greater power handling and reduced power compression.
Advanced Shock-Mount™ System
(baffle/basket isolation) Like the CI Elite Series, we've added the same great Advanced Shock-Mount™ System to mechanically decouple the basket from the chassis. This significantly reduces performance-robbing vibrations and resonances between the acoustic platform and the rest of the speaker. Without these resonances, all drivers are left free to deliver pure, unaltered sound with no audible distortion.
Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART™) surrounds
Made in-house and over-moulded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds. US patents: D654,479S and 8,340,340B2.
Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology
significantly reduces the adverse effects of diffraction while improving frequency response.
Advanced Features for a Solid and Secure Installation
FEA-Optimized Ultra Rigid Cast-Aluminum Baskets feature integrated heat sinks for higher power handling, for better bass, better dynamics, and less power compression.
Integrated Acoustic Back-box Enclosure safeguards internal parts from debris while preventing added sound 'spillage' to adjacent rooms. It also ensures consistent and reliable performance from application to application. (CI Elite LCR models only)
Screen Compensation Mode ensures true acoustic transparency when placed behind micro-perforated projection screens. (CI Elite LCR models only)
Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap.
Premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors, capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.
Nickel-plated, spring loaded binding posts feature a larger wire hole to accept higher-gauge wire or banana plugs.
Bezel-Free Micro-Perf Grilles offer a clean aestetic from room-to-room.
Magnetically attached grilles: neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place.
