Paragon Detail

Ring Radiator Tweeter

The Paragon speakers use an extremely high quality ring radiator tweeter which is very advanced and is one of the best tweeters we’ve ever heard.

It uses a 35mm dual concentric diaphragm with a wave-guide centre plug and an unusually large neodymium magnet structure.

Paragon's tweeter are a special 'ring radiator' design which is extremely quick and refined

The Mid-Range Drivers

The mid-range is catered for by twin 100mm poly-glass drivers with extremely low cone mass allowing incredible transient response.

The Bass Drivers

Each speaker contains two 6.5” sliced paper cone drivers, in their own sealed sub-enclosure to handle upper bass.

Paragon's drivers are of extremely high quality and performance.

Sub-bass using Whise patented technologies

The Paragon sub-bass has its own 350 Watt amplifier built-in for truly effortless bass.

The sub-bass section of the Paragon uses advanced patented Whise technologies to produce low bass with very low levels of distortion. This section uses twin 10” drivers each with an extremely large linear travel of 36mm. They are mounted in a balanced configuration which virtually eliminates resonances.

Whise enclosure technology uses acoustic filters which, when combined with Whise electronic crossover technology, dramatically reduces harmonic distortion. This results in exceptional clarity and detail at upper bass and midrange frequencies while the lower bass always sounds unbelievably tight and controlled. While most systems (especially subwoofers) begin to compress the sound as the volume increases the Paragon sounds effortless, even at high volumes.

Exceptional Crossovers

The Crossover networks are completely enclosed and isolated from the rear radiation of the drivers to minimise the effects of resonances on the crossover components.

The Paragon comes with its own Whise electronic crossover used between the active sub-bass and the main section. This electronic crossover uses Neville Thiele filter technology with 100db per octave slopes to ensure only low-bass emanates from the sub-bass drivers and no low-bass is directed to the upper-bass drivers.

Paragon use Hovland film and foil capacitors which offer a significant improvement in sound quality.

The detail, clarity, openness and smoothness of the Paragon will amaze you. The Paragons are equally at home playing jazz, classical, rock or an exciting movie soundtrack.

“ My objective was to create a speaker that was as close to flawless as possible, and I am truly thrilled with the final results. This has been a long term personal project and I would love to share the results with you.” – Colin Whatmough.
