500C Centre Channel
The Premier 500C is an elegantly proportioned Centre Channel which cunningly hides the true finesse and scale of its sound reproduction. It is a 4-driver 3-way acoustic suspension design which incorporates a 1” (25mm) X-PAL dome Tweeter with perforated phase-aligning lens combined with a 4” (102mm) black anodized X-Pal carbon-infused polypropylene Midrange, also sporting the unique perforated phase-aligning lens. The lineup is completed by a pair of 5½” (140mm) ART surround carbon-infused polypropylene high performance Bass Drivers. With low frequency extension down to 47Hz the 500C can fill a medium sized room with clear rich vocal energy to complement the 800F & 700F floorstanders or the 200B & 100B stand mount speakers in a quality home theatre system.
Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surrounds
Premier features Paradigm’s patented Active Ridge Technology (ART) surrounds, made in-house and overmolded directly onto each woofer and midrange cone. This design achieves greater excursion, for a 3dB gain in output and 50% reduction in distortion. Crafted from injection-molded thermoplastic elastomer, ART surrounds are more durable and more reliable, ensuring a lifetime of superior sound.
Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Tweeter and Midrange Lens Technology
Distinctive perforated lens in front of the tweeter and midrange drivers increase and smooth output without coloring the sound, while also protecting the drivers from getting damaged.
Performance & Value
To produce a loudspeaker that meets our standards for performance and value, we took complete control of the manufacturing process, an unprecedented move at this price point. In our state-of-the-art North American facility, we have produced a loudspeaker that defies convention; a homegrown loudspeaker that benefits from innovations found throughout the Paradigm family of loudspeakers.
Crafted in Canada
Premier Series speakers are designed, engineered, and made in Paradigm’s state-of-the-art 225,000 ft2 Canadian facility. We chose heavy duty, non-resonant 3/4-inch MDF, with optimally placed interior bracing, and reinforced front baffles to ensure an audio performance beyond any other in this price range. Smooth front baffles, enhanced with 1-inch MDF, reduce diffraction and improve sound radiation characteristics. You can feel the Premier build quality that comes from true handcrafted manufacturing. Beautiful, furniture-grade finishes complete this new standard of performance and value.
