  4. Further information: Up for sale are my 2 (small factor) subwoofers. These have a 12" down firing woofer with two 10" passive radiators on the side. Items can be split, and one of them has some more markings on the top than the other and will be cheaper priced. They both have build in EQ but you need to buy the paradigm PBK mic to be able to use it. (not included) Both can be shipped into their original packaging. Specifications can be found here https://www.paradigm.com/en/sealed/ultracube-12 Thanks to its design and use of passive radiators (also makes for great handles for carrying) these are rather small in size which makes them easy to fit into a common living room, and having 2 subs you are better equipped to deal with room modes, and you get a 6dB increase, compared to one sub.

  8. Further information: Price Drop and open to "REASONABLE" offers! Not $300.00 like the bloke the other day thanks lol. They are Exceptional value at the asking price even if I do say so myself! I used these for about 6 months when I was into movies, but then I just started 2 channel listening. Basically, they have been sitting on the wall for 3 years unused. I have the boxes if shipping is required but would prefer local pick up at this stage (Social distancing requirements followed of course) as they would be expensive to ship as they are quite heavy. However, if a potential buyer was interested in paying for shipping I would assist. Any questions please feel free to PM me.

  11. Hi all, My CC-690 recently started sounding awful (tinny/vibration), and with the current travel restrictions, I thought I'd open it up and have a look. I couldn't see anything obviously wrong, so I just re-seated the mechanical connections at the drivers and crossovers. In testing, I came across the following odd behaviour: - With only the upper range (top binding posts) connected, the tweeter/midrange assembly works as expected (woofers silent) - With only the lower range (bottom binding posts) connected, the 4 woofers work as expected (tweeter assembly silent) - When both sets of binding posts are connected (using either bi-wire cables or the supplied links), only the tweeter assembly works (woofers are silent) I can't understand how this is possible as the top binding posts appear to be wired directly to the tweeter assembly's crossover and the bottom posts to the main crossover (which directly drives the 4 woofers). In this photo, the purple/black pair of wires go directly to the tweeter's crossover: If anyone with more knowledge of speaker design could help me to understand what's going on (and ultimately, to fix the speaker!), that would be fantastic. This is doing my head in! Thanking you all in advance.

  13. Hi everyone its been a little while since writing on these forums, however I have had the privilege to be able to officially get hold of a paradigm defiance subwoofer and review it for over a month and see what it has to offer for its price. so here I go. Paradigm is known for there great sounding speakers, I've personally listened to them and have always commended their sound quality, however I was courious to see how their subs would perform given a price tag of about $999, that's where the defiance V10 comes in. This subwoofer is the latest generation of subs that paradigm has to offer which is part of the 'V' series of subwoofers in the defiance range, paradigm also offers an upgraded series of subwoofers in the defiance range called the 'X' series, in which those subwoofers feature more power and includes a bigger 15" subwoofer model in the range. Features: The Defiance V10 features a front firing 10" driver (hence the name 'V10') in a ported enclosure, however unlike some subwoofers such as the Krix Seismix 3 MK7 or the SVS PB-1000 which features the port in front, the V10 features it on the bottom of the sub making it a down ported configuration which usually means that the type of floor can affect the way this subwoofer would perform. On the back of the V10 is a 120 watt rms/ 240 watt peak amplifier, it features two low level rca inputs with one of them being an LFE input ( this input bypasses the sub's internal crossover to allow full crossover control from an AV Receiver/Processor), the V10 also features high level speaker inputs as well, however it only accepts banana plugs and not just bare wire. The V10 has a power mode switch and a setting to switch between local and app control for the V10, speaking of apps, the V10 is app controlled via the "Paradigm Subwoofer Control" app, which allows full control of the subwoofer on a smart device from your seat and because the V10 features Anthem's ARC room correction via a separate app ("Anthem ARC Mobile"), you have the option of either using your phone as the set-up microphone or you can get the optional dedicated microphone. Setup: I had the V10 setup with my Polk Signature speakers which is configured as a 5.1.2 Dolby atmos/ DTS X, I had the S20 bookself speakers as my fronts, the S30 as the centre and two pairs of S10's in which one pair does surround and the other pair does the height Dolby atmos/ DTS X effects. the AV receiver powering up the whole system is a Yamaha RX-V1083 (same as RX-A1070) with the Sony UBP-X700 as the media source. As far as crossovers go, I had the front three speakers set to 80Hz and the surrounds and effects channels set to 90Hz. I connected the V10 via the LFE input and had the sub placed between the left and centre speaker as that was where the V10 like most of my subs performed best. I did the rest of the set-up for the V10 using the apps and ran the Anthem ARC room correction via "Anthem ARC Mobile" using my Samsung Galaxy A20 mobile device as my set-up microphone (not the most accurate way to set-up the sub, but it was good enough), then I went into the " Paradigm Subwoofer Control" app where I had the level set to '-12" (the range is -40 to +8 I believe) and the phase was at 0 degrees, I didn't set the crossover as I already connected the sub to LFE. Performance: After the setup and calibration, I decided to play some music content (in stereo mode 2.1ch) starting with "Phil Collins live at Montreux 2004" on standard Blu-ray to see how well the V10 can reproduce the sound of drums and see how well it can handle the complexity of two drum sets, overall the V10 performed very admirably, thanks to the Anthem ARC room correction, each kick drum was reproduced clean and tight without any noticeable overhang and complexity of the drums was handled nicely with each hit sounding well defined without sounding like a one note wonder, it doesn't have as much kicking energy as the Krix Seismix 3 MK7, but it still remains cleaner than the SVS PB-1000. When playing "In the air tonight" and the bass played, the V10 gave a very satisfying performance where it made a nice transfer of bass energy into my listening area almost giving the impression that I was there, once again the V10 still playing clean but smooth, I played other music content as well such as; Nils Lofgren (bass and drum solo), Dire Straits (money for nothing), Bee Gees (live by request: massachusetts) and Lifehouse (hanging by a moment). Throughout listening to music the V10 performed consistently well and I didn't feel that the V10 needed any further adjustment for improvement in its music playback, so that's a big thumbs up to Anthem's ARC room correction. After finishing with music, it was movie time and for that I started with "BumbleBee" on Ultra HD Blu-ray, I watched the whole movie and all the while observing how well the V10 can handle 'LFE' effects. The V10 produced some satisfying effects, rumbling effects sounded quite convincing with some good punch and soundtracks sounded nice and cinematic and it was quite exciting to listen to, particularly the fight scene between BumbleBee and Dropkick and Shatter, punches and kicks as well as blaster fire shots were reproduced solidly and they didn't sound like the same bass thud, they sounded separate making it easy to tell the difference between a blaster gun and a punch. I then moved on to "Finding Nemo" to where Marlin and Dory are inside a whale, in this scene are some aggressive rumbles when the whale stops and when the whale is talking to Dory, this scene has plagued some subs that I've had in the past sometimes producing a lot of port noise or the woofer would bottom out, however the V10 handled it pretty good, I did have my ear near the port as well to see if there was port noise and I couldn't detect it. I did also play some other movies such as; Transformers (the last knight), Kong Skull Island, Godzilla (king of monsters), Star Wars (the phantom menace) and Tron (Legacy). In all those movies the V10 performed quite solidly, however it wasn't without issue though and this is probably due to the 120wrms amplifier, it doesn't handle dynamics as well as some of the more higher powered competitors in the same price range, this is especially the case when playing "Transformers (the last knight)" and "Godzilla (king of monsters)" where big explosions at times can sound a little underwhelming and if you push the sub level any higher to hear those big explosions to a more satisfactory level it will compress and it is noticeable. Competition: Krix Seismix 3 MK7: this is currently the sub that I own and have always been impressed by its overall performance, so how does it compare to the Paradigm Defiance V10? well in terms of features, the V10 is the way to go if you want app control capabilities and a good range of inputs including high level inputs, which the Seismix 3 MK7 does not have and the V10 has room correction whereas the Seismix 3 MK7 doesn't have that, however if great overall power and performance is what you are looking for then the tables do turn in favour of the Seismix 3 MK7, it has 350 watts rms whereas the V10 only has 120 watts rms and despite the advantage of room correction the Seismix 3 MK7 did better overall, while the V10 did well in music playback, the Seismix 3 MK7 did it better, it had more energy to give and was more engaging, but at the same time its clean and tight. when it came to movies the Seismix 3 MK7 did way better than the V10 mainly because of the power difference which means Seismix 3 MK7 didn't compress at high volume or with high dynamic effects like the V10 did. SVS PB-1000: being a previous owner of a PB-1000, I know that If great movie performance is what you are looking for then it has to be the PB-1000, it has more power then the Paradigm Defiance V10 (300 watts rms vs 120 watts rms) and due to this power difference the PB-1000 like the Seismix 3 MK7 would not compress at higher volume like the V10 did and the PB-1000 does go a bit lower as well, but once again if high tech features, room correction and musicality is what you are after then between the PB-1000 and the V10, its going to be the V10, it plays cleaner and tighter than the PB-1000 and has a bit better definition as well. Yamaha NS-SW300: I use to own the NS-SW300 and in terms of looks it does make a statement for itself, this subwoofer covers all the basics well in terms of features, it even has high level speaker inputs and outputs, but Paradigm Defiance V10 does once again have app control and room correction and it does show when come to the sound, it sounds way cleaner and tighter than the NS-SW300 which translate to better musical performance. When it comes to movies as well the V10 does better than the NS-SW300, its more cinematic and sounds goes a bit lower as well whereas the NS-SW300 sounds like its struggling to hit lower frequencies at high volume below 35Hz and starts rattling pretty badly when trying to hit those lower frequencies. Conclusion: Overall the Paradigm Defiance V10 is quite a nice subwoofer, it has some great features and I'd definitely called it a smart subwoofer given that it has smart device app control and an excellent Anthem ARC room correction system which in turn made the V10 a solid musical performer and it does quite well in movies, however for almost the same price you can more powerful offerings from other brands that may be better especially for movie content that has a heavy demand in the LFE effects. Pros: > App control >Room correction >Solid music performance >High level inputs Cons: > Only 120 watts RMS > struggles with movies at high volume and high dynamics > competition offers more power for similar price
  14. Hi All, I’m planning to buy a pair of surround speaker and a pair of Ceiling speaker. I have now Paradigm Premier 800F front and Paradigm Premier 500C centre. For surround I have now pair B&W M1 speaker and ceiling I have pair of Canton 445. Subwoofer I’m using SVS SB3000. Amplifier I’m using Marantz SR6013. I’ve upgraded fronts centre subwoofer amplifier between 6months to a year ago. Now I’m ready to upgrade surround and ceiling speakers. I’m not sure if I must use paradigm surround and ceiling to complement my front and centre or should I go other brand with better crossover and better value. my budget $1000-$1500 for both surrounds and ceiling speaker. Thanks in advance for all suggestions.
