The Persona B Bookshelf/Stand-Mount Loudspeaker delivers the full performance benefits of Beryllium drivers. In fact, it is the only loudspeaker in its class that features the tandem Truextent® Beryllium tweeter and mid-range driver system, and nothing else. Experience remarkable transient response, surprising low-end extension, seamless blending and breathtaking transparency in places where floor standing speakers may not be appropriate, or in a superior home theatre system.
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.
