Paradigm Introduces Monitor Series v.6

The latest version of Paradigm's Monitor Series is the v.6. It contains all of the same technology as the v.5 series but also adds new technology like modified phase-coherent crossovers, a new finish and redesigned magnetic grilles. In addition, the Titan Monitor now has a rear port as well as an updated voice coil.

The sixth incarnation of its Monitor Series, Paradigm's re-vamped Monitor line retains all of the same technology as the v.5 series while adding updates such as modified phase-coherent crossovers, redesigned magnetic grilles and a new finish. For individual product updates, the Titan Monitor gains a new rear port as well as an updated voice coil.

In response to customer and dealer feedback, Paradigm did a complete re-design of the Monitor v.6 grilles. The new magnetic grilles feature low diffraction with re-worked, reinforced placement of the magnets to ensure the grilles will stay centered over the baffle at all times and not move unless removed.

For aesthetics, Paradigm added nickel-plated screws to all bookshelf, floorstanding and center-channel speakers. Made popular by furniture manufacturers, all v.6 models are also available in a new Wengé (pronounced wen-gay) finish. When black, rosenut or cherry don't match a room's décor, customers now have the option of wengé, a dark brown, almost black, finish with fine pencil-thin, light tan lines interspersed with blackish brown stripes.

"When you have something that works and sells as well as our Monitor Series, it doesn't make a lot of sense to re-invent it top to bottom," says Paradigm Marketing Manager Mark Aling. "However, if the R&D team identifies something that can be improved, even incrementally, our philosophy is that such changes enhance the value of the product. Paradigm's customers and dealers deserve the best value possible, and that's what Monitor Series v.6 is all about."

Paradigm's SuperDrive• technology, first introduced in Series v.5, remains a vital component of the Monitor Series. SuperDrive combines high efficiency with high output and low distortion. Combined with the tweaked crossover design, even moderately powered amplifiers allow the Monitor Series v.6 speakers to deliver its performance. Because of their high efficiency and power handling, Monitor Series v.6 speakers hold their own in terms of efficiency and output with major brands of horn speakers.
