Paradigm Prestige 95f *SOLD*
2.5-way floorstanding speaker
Finish: Black Walnut
Condition: 8.5/10 No Boxes
This pair of Paradigm Prestige 95Fs were originally sold by The Audio Store to a customer who upgraded to Paradigm Founder series speakers.
The Paradigm Prestige 95f speakers feature a 2.5-way, 4 driver design. The 95f uses a 1in X-PAL dome tweeter, an 8in X-PAL mid/bass driver and two 8in X-PAL woofers. The Prestige 95F speakers utilize the 2.5-way crossover technology to greatly improve off-axis performance (for listeners not positioned directly in front of the sweet spot) and boost deep bass dynamics. This leap in acoustic performance is acheived by utilizing all three woofers at low frequencies, while the bass/midrange covers voice and musical instruments without the necessity of "crossing over" to the dedicated midrange. Made in Canada.
