Persona™ is a showcase of vanguard materials and Paradigm’s most advanced audio technologies, all entirely Crafted in Canada.

Over Three Decades of Innovation

Elegantly Curved Cabinet Designed, engineered and Crafted in Canada, this heavy duty, non-resonant cabinet is an intricate system of rigid enclosures, braced and damped to defeat vibrations and internal standing waves. Offered in a variety of beautiful finishes, its presence makes a forceful statement, but its performance remains utterly transparent.

Seven Layer HDF Construction Construction of the beautifully curved and completely inert enclosures begins with seven layers of HDF wood composite material and Viscoelastic adhesive placed in a custom press. The enclosures are treated with radio-frequency (RF) energy to accelerate the curing process, which takes almost a week to complete. The result is a strong, constrained layered damped enclosure that’s the perfect acoustical foundation from which to build upon.

Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA) Driver Lenses A patent pending technology for our Beryllium tweeter and mid-range drivers, this exclusive design blocks out-of-phase frequencies which increases and smooths output without colouring the sound, while also protecting the crown jewels of the Persona series, the expensive Beryllium drivers, from getting damaged.

Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surrounds 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.

X-PAL™ Woofer Drivers X-PAL pure-aluminium cones blend lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncoloured frequency response. Combined with ART surrounds, these woofers produce truly huge bass with no threat of flexing or distortion.

Ultra-High-Excursion Differential Drive Woofers The Persona 9H & 7F use Differential Drive motors in the woofers, which have increased power handling, improved mechanical stability, and reduced magnetic flux modulation distortion. This exclusive design utilizes dual voice coils and 3 powerful magnets to achieve exponential levels of output with vanishingly low distortion. Advanced Dual

Voice Coil Systems The Persona 9H Hybrid features dual voice coil systems with high-temp wire (tolerances to 600°F) wound on resilient Kapton formers, supported by high-excursion Nomex spiders. This 1.5-inch motor design packs the effects of a super-extended throw into a compact enclosure. In addition, the die-cast woofer baskets feature integrated heat sinks and AVS™ Airflow Ventilation System Cooling, for higher power handling with less power compression.

Dual 700W Ultra-Class D Amplifiers Persona 9H features two powerful onboard amplifiers deliver an astonishing 1400 Watts RMS of clean, continuous power even at lifelike performance levels. Adaptive PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) optimizes amplifier efficiency and smooths supply variations, for instantaneous reactions and reference-quality performance with bulletproof reliability. In addition, Anthem Room Correction (ARC) Technology in the pre-amp section corrects for the effects of reflective surfaces in any room. Anthem

Room Correction (ARC™): Perfect Sound Anywhere. The powered woofer section of the Persona 9H Hybrid includes our exclusive Anthem Room Correction (ARC) Technology. ARC measures low-frequency sound output in your room and compares it to optimal response curves that account for spatial anomalies. The advanced algorithms of ARC then effectively remove the anomalies, leaving only the ideal standard: realistically blended, natural-sounding bass performance, in any listening space.
