Rich, detailed sound
The ‘6000F tower is the middle-of-the-pack option in Paradigm’s Monitor SE floor-standing lineup. Its three-way, five-driver design provides a big soundstage with clear instrument separation and lifelike dynamics. The special tweeter design and carefully crafted drivers are quick and responsive, whether you’re watching giant robots fight on-screen or jamming out to some Springsteen. These speakers have no trouble keeping up and drawing you into anything you may be listening to.
A finely crafted tweeter
Paradigm did extensive research into what makes a tweeter sound clear or muddy. That testing and analysis led to the patented X-PAL pure aluminum dome tweeter and PPA (Perforated Phase-Aligning) lens featured in the Monitor SE Series. This proprietary design uses the lens as refined phase plug — it blocks out a wide range of unwanted out-of-phase frequencies, giving the tweeter smooth, uncolored highs
The ‘6000F uses a three-way speaker design. Three 5-1/2″ drivers are dedicated to reproducing low frequencies, while an additional 5-1/2″ woofer handles the midrange. Thanks to that design, there’s a good deal of detail and soundstage separation between the highs, mids, and bass frequencies. The bass drivers and midrange driver are made of mineral-filled polypropylene and have an inverted dust cap. That design keeps the drivers lightweight and rigid, allowing them to be agile enough to keep up with the most demanding music and films. The carefully designed surrounds help to control the linear motion of the cones while giving them a low-profile appearance if you choose to leave the grilles off. The rear-firing port helps to give the low-end response more depth and punch
Partnered with Canada’s National Research Center
Paradigm is partnered with Canada’s largest federal research and development organization, the National Research Center (NRC). The two research the nature of sound and human hearing together, and their findings influence the design and performance of Paradigm’s loudspeakers and subwoofers. The result is a uniquely realistic sound that’s backed by ample scientific research.
