Paradigm 85F Floorstanding Speakers  

Respect for the original source

Designed, engineered, and fully Crafted in Canada, by people who love great audio (just like you). From the precise workmanship of the non-resonant cabinets to their beautiful premium-grade finishes, Prestige is truly hand-built for performance. 

Music is a living thing, born in a studio and on-stage. It grows, expands, and takes over the world. It takes an extraordinary level of loudspeaker performance to reproduce the thrilling experience in the comfort of your own home. 

That’s the goal of Paradigm's Prestige Series. And like the most effective live performances, Prestige achieves its goal with simplicity, technology, and the application of a talented human touch. Whether you seek a more lifelike realization of your music sources, or you want a truly earthshaking home theater experience, the new Prestige Series offers you the best seat in the house (the one in your own living room)!  

Prestige is smart engineering

Paradigm's next-generation X-PAL™ pure-aluminium drivers along with our exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeters Lens that protects the delicate tweeter dome and acts as the Phase Plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies for smoother, extended high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output. 

Driver Design & Engineering

 Paradigm guarantee consistency of their precision engineering, going beyond the industry standard to deliver superior high performance in each prestige loudspeaker that they have built. 

 


X-PAL™ woofer and midrange brushed pure-aluminum cones combine lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncolored frequency response. Matching concave dust caps ensuring a more uniform dynamic response and a cleaner, modern aesthetic. Paradigm’s 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. Crafted from audiophile-grade injection-molded thermoplastic elastomer, ART™ surrounds are more durable and reliable, for a lifetime of superior sound.

Lightweight, extremely durable high-excursion Nomex spider design delivers a longer life of flexibility and performance. Nomex is 10-times stronger than industry-standard cotton-based spider material. Super-strong die-cast baskets feature integrated heat sinks for higher power handling, better bass, better dynamics, and less power compression.

Mid-woofers and woofers feature long-excursion, high-power 1.5-inch voice coil motors with Kapton formers, high-temp wire (tolerances to 600°F!), and more durable Nomex collars.

The reference-level Prestige crossover design includes high voltage film and bi-polar capacitors, heavy gauge inductors, and superior ceramic stand-off resistors for consistent performance at any playback level, and provide seamless blending for a more realistic performance.

SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System - a butyl-rubber driver fastening system in which critically placed isolation inserts and gaskets decouple drivers from the speaker’s enclosure, resulting in an unparalleled reduction of driver/enclosure interactions and their associated performance-robbing resonances and vibrations.

The Prestige 85F is exactly the same configuration as the 75F but scaled up to house the larger 6.5" Midrange and Bass Drivers for greater dynamic headroom and Bass extension but with the same control and speed.
