Barely taking up over 1 square foot of floorspace, the 80F is an incredibly approachable entry point into the world of high-end sound.

Containing every new Founder Series technology in our repertoire, the 80F is a stunning, premium loudspeaker that can outperform many larger, and more expensive, models. The 80F allows you to experience the dynamics and scale that a tower is capable of while still being comparatively unimposing in a room. The 80F: Maximum Performance, Minimal Footprint.

Founder’s tweeter is made lighter and stronger with Paradigm’s special combination of Aluminium, Magnesium, and Ceramic materials. It has a natural resistance to uncontrolled resonance that makes it far more accurate and responsive than other designs. It doesn’t just sound good on paper, it performs in the real world.

Founder Series Paradigm Lss

Founder’s midrange driver is developed with listener sensitivity in mind. The midrange is in many ways, the most important driver of any speaker design because it produces the most familiar sounds like the human voice. By using Aluminium and Magnesium, Paradigm have improved its realism and accuracy.

Founder is perfect for large, open-plan rooms with reflective surfaces like windows and hardwood floors.

OSW™ gives you better sound where you want it, and less distracting sound where you don’t.

Real solutions for real life.
