Paradigm Prestige Has Perforated Tweeter Lens

Paradigm uses a new kind of tweeter lens in its Prestige line. The Perforated Phase-Aligning system is visible as a perforated structure covering the tweeter. It acts as a phase plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies, improving detail and output. You're looking at the line's two centers, the 45C ($1299) and 55C ($1699), with two to four 6.1-inch woofers, three-inch midranges, and one-inch X-PAL tweeters, the latter using a new aluminum formulation. Shipping now. Also shown was a prototype of the Prestige 2000SW, a 15-inch sub with 2000-watt amp. Its handy front controls include a tone sweep that operates independently of Paradigm's Perfect Bass Kit sub-tuning program. Shipping in spring at price to be determined. Oh, and Paradigm also showed two speaker models using DTS Play-Fi, a versatile new wireless technology you're going to be hearing a lot more about now that heavy duty manufacturers are starting to license it. When they ship in spring, the smallish PF 600, larger PF 800, and PF Amp will ship for an estimated $599 and $799 per pair and $499 for the amp.
