Subwoofer Control App
Simplify setup & tuning with the free Paradigm Subwoofer Control App*, available for iOS and Android devices.

Using your mobile device or optional calibrated microphone (included with Defiance X models, sold separately on Defiance V models*), ARC® measures your space, compares it to lab standard using proprietary advanced DSP algorithms, and instantly removes performance-robbing anomalies. The result is easy to hear: realistically blended, accurately rendered deep bass. Professional room correction at the touch of a button. * Not available on Defiance V8
