Paradigm CI Series

Paradigm Electronics Inc. has just announced that they have completely revamped their custom install products – introducing three new lines of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers: CI Home Series, CI Pro Series and CI Elite Series. These new lines incorporate advanced technologies for greater performance and power-handling and also have bezel-free micro-perf grilles for discreet installation, a re-engineered mounting system, and improved build-quality.

There are now 18 in-wall and in-ceiling speakers to choose from withhin the three new CI Series lines, with price points and matching aesthetics that allow customers to mix-and-match models to meet their needs and budget.

CI Home Series: Replaces the CS series and provides superior sound, easy installation, and a new bezel-free micro-perf grille with an incredibly discreet aesthetic.

• NEW Bezel-free, Magnetically-attached Micro-perf grilles: Neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place. Square grille option available for most in-ceiling (round) models.
• Pure-Titanium Dome (PTD) Tweeters: Ferro-fluid damped and cooled to ensure smooth high-frequency performance with amazing clarity across a wide listening area.
• Superior Mineral-filled Polypropylene Bass/Midrange Cones: Oversized computer optimized ferrite magnets and high-power motor structures deliver detailed midrange performance with clean, extended bass.
• Rigid ABS clamps simplify and reduce installation time.
• Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap.

CI Home Series – MSRP (U.S.):
In-ceiling (round) models:
H55-R: $199/ea
H65-R: $229/ea
H65-SM: $259/ea

H65-IW: $229/ea
H55-LCR: $329/ea

CI Pro Series: Replace the AMS series and are Crafted in Canada. They take performance to the next level with patented technology, step-up components, and hallmark Paradigm sound quality, plus a new bezel-free micro-perf grille with an incredibly discreet aesthetic.

• NEW Bezel-free, Magnetically-attached Micro-perf grilles: Neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place. Square grille option available for most in-ceiling (round) models.
• NEW X-PAL tweeter with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA) tweeter lens protects the delicate pure-aluminum tweeter dome and acts as the Phase Plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies for smoother, extended high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output.
• Tweeters are cooled by our patent pending RED die-cast aluminum housing (see below) and the original ultra-stable Ferrofluid, made exclusively by Ferrotec.
• Mineral-Filled polypropylene woofer cones with Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART) surrounds, made in-house and overmolded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds.
• NEW Rear Component Shielding protects internal parts from debris. The translucent polycarbonate rear cover creates an installation that will not warp. Flat covers also make it easy to lie speakers down during the installation process without tipping.
• Die-cast aluminum chassis, baffles (in-wall models only), and clamps add strength and rigidity for better bass and midrange, along with a more durable installation.
• Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap.
• Designed to fit applicable Paradigm Fireboxes and PB brackets

CI Pro Series – MSRP (U.S.):
In-ceiling (round) models:
P65-R: $279/ea

CI Elite Series: Replace the SA series and are Crafted in Canada. Builds on the CI Pro performance and features with oversized voice coils and X-PAL pure-aluminum cone technology for the ultimate in sound performance.

• NEW Bezel-free, Magnetically-attached Micro-perf grilles: Neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place. Square grille option available for most in-ceiling (round) models.
• NEW X-PAL tweeter with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA) tweeter lens protects the delicate pure-aluminum tweeter dome and acts as the Phase Plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies for smoother, extended high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output.
• Tweeters are cooled by our patent pending RED die-cast aluminum housing (see below) and the original ultra-stable Ferrofluid, made exclusively by Ferrotec.
• NEW X-PAL pure-aluminum woofer cones combine lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncolored frequency response. Woofers feature long-excursion, high-power 1.5-inch voice coil motors for greater power handling and reduced power compression.
• Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART) surrounds, made in-house and overmolded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds.
• NEW Rear Component Shielding protects internal parts from debris. The translucent polycarbonate rear cover creates an installation that will not warp. Flat covers also make it easy to lie speakers down during the installation process without tipping.
