Description

Paradigm Founder Series 120H Hybrid Floorstanding Speakers

Despite the high efficiency of the Paradigm Founder Series 120H Hybrid Floorstanding Speakers, when we say hybrid, we don’t mean it gets great gas mileage.

No, we mean it has an amplified bass section that does the “heavy lifting” for you. Since our engineers designed the 120H from the ground up with its own amplification for the bass, we could perfectly tune the output as a system, giving a higher performance in a smaller package than would typically be possible.

The 120H also takes advantage of the incredible ARC Genesis room correction system that takes real-world measurements in your room to tune the bass response for your specific situation. This is indeed next-level bass performance that allows your amplifier to concentrate its energy on the critical midrange and high frequencies. The 120H offers truly uncompromised performance in a very reasonably sized package.

The Founder Range

  • Founder Series 40BThere is a lot to love here in such a compact package. With almost every technology featured in the larger floorstanding models, the 40B bookshelf/standmount is the perfect way to experience the magic of Founder Series with a minimal footprint. Available in 4 gorgeous finishes, the 40B is the ideal way to add beautiful sound and looks to any space.
  • Founder Series 70LCRThe smallest center channel option in the Founder Series is also one of the most versatile. The 70LCR is not only designed to be used as a high-performance center channel wherever space is a concern, but it’s equally as skilled when used as a main or surround channel. With equally stunning performance, whether oriented vertically or horizontally, the 70LCR is the perfect solution to get consistent, high-quality sound wherever you need it.
  • Founder Series 90CThe most ideal center channel is to use the same speaker as the Front Left and Right channels. This is not always practical, especially when towers are being used. The Founder 90C was designed to capture the overall performance, dynamics, and realism of the larger tower models, but in a design that is more practical to use underneath a TV or screen.
  • Founder Series 80FBarely taking up over 1 square foot of floorspace, the 80F is an incredibly approachable entry point into the world of high-end sound. Containing every new Founder Series technology in our repertoire, the 80F is a stunning, premium loudspeaker that can outperform many larger, and more expensive, models. The 80F allows you to experience the dynamics and scale that a tower is capable of while still being comparatively unimposing in a room. The 80F: Maximum Performance, Minimal Footprint.
  • Founder Series 100FThe 100F takes the design of the 80F to the next level. We added more bass drivers, larger woofers, and a dedicated midrange to a cabinet that is only slightly larger than the smallest 80F. More bass, improved dynamics, and increased clarity and realism. For those desiring an even better experience, the 100F is the perfect choice.

Features

During their exhaustive research, design, and engineering process, they looked closely and carefully at how speakers interact with their environment. The contemporary home interior presents design challenges that have become even more prominent over the last decade.

Stone, glass, and wood have become the materials of choice and open concepts dominate. Founder’s design has evolved with this trend and is perfectly suited to deliver its maximum performance in rooms that would challenge traditionally designed speakers.

Whether you enjoy movies and music in a more traditional listening space, or your home is from the pages of Architectural Digest, you can be sure Founder will sound as good as they look.

  • Precision – When we say “precision” we mean the nuance, detail, and realism that is achieved when a speaker “gets it right.” Founder series includes many new advances in design, materials, and engineering to provide class defining levels of performance.
  • Control – Packing incredible technology into a speaker means nothing if the benefits don’t reach your ears. By addressing every component, our engineers made sure that you could hear the results of their hard work in any environment.
  • Dynamics – Detail, clarity, accuracy, fidelity – these are words often thrown around to indicate the quality of sound, but what of the quantity? Recreating a live performance takes dynamics, or the ability to recreate quiet sounds, loud sounds, and everything in between. Let’s look at how the Founder Series recreates the broadest and most powerful dynamics.

AL-MAC™ High-Frequency Driver
The Founder’s tweeter is a 1″ (25mm) Aluminum Magnesium Ceramic (AL-MAC™) dome with a proprietary Oblate Spherical Waveguide (OSW™) and a Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Lens.

AL-MAG™ Midrange Driver
The Founder’s midrange is a 6″ (152mm) Aluminum Magnesium (AL-MAG™) cone with Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Lens, Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System, and a 2” high-temp multi-layered voice coil with ventilated Apical™ former.

Ultra-High-Excursion AL-MAG™ Bass Midrange Driver ONLY on Founder Series 40B & 80F
The Founder’s mid/bass driver (40B and 80F only) is a 6″(152mm) Ultra-High-Excursion Aluminum Magnesium (AL-MAG™) cone with Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Lens, Gen3 Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surround with Vertical Mounting System, Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation, and a 1.5” high-temp multi-layered voice coil with ventilated Apical™ former.

Ultra-High-Excursion CARBON-X Unibody Bass Driver
The Founder’s Bass driver is a 6” (152mm), 7” (177mm) or 8” (215mm) Ultra-High-Excursion Unibody CARBON-X™ Cone, over-molded Gen3 Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surround with Vertical Mounting System, Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation and a 1.5” high-temp multi-layered voice coil with ventilated Apical™ former.

Beautiful Premium-Grade Finishes
Founder Series cabinets are offered in a variety of beautiful premium-grade finishes: Walnut and Black Walnut have a smooth satin finish with distinctive wood figuring. Our exclusive Midnight Cherry and Piano Black feature a luxurious hand-rubbed, high-gloss finish.

ADVANCED Shock-Mount™ Feet
Founder Floorstanding Speakers include Advanced Shock-Mount™ Feet which decouple the cabinet from the floor, not just once, but twice, for extremely effective vibration decoupling. Interchangeable hardware is included for both carpet and hard surfaces. The feet can be adjusted from above to level the cabinet with ease.

ADVANCED Shock-Mount™ System
The Founder Series midrange and bass drivers are mechanically decoupled from the front baffle by our Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System.

This special mounting hardware uses an elastomer suspension to prevent any transfer of vibration from the driver to the cabinet, and from the cabinet to the driver. By eliminating resonance, the driver is free to render sound purely and efficiently with no audible distortion and maximum clarity.

Dual-Sync™ Continuous Flux Motor
The Founder’s new coaxial midrange driver found on the center channel models, employs OSW™’s oblate spheroid shape with a coaxially mounted tweeter.

It maintains detail and sonic focus within the broad and deep sound stage by acting as the waveguide for the tweeter, making its dispersion characteristics ideal for any listening space.

Our patented Dual-Sync™ Continuous Flux Motor has taken away the limitations of combined magnet structures as well as having a full-sized, low-distortion and higher output midrange tweeter combination while maintaining a relatively low height for the center channel cabinet, allowing for greater placement flexibility.

Cascade-Fusion Bracing
Cascade-Fusion Bracing inside Founder Series’ faceted cabinets increase rigidity and break up standing low-frequency waves.

This delivers much tighter bass with greater clarity and accuracy. All bracing is extensively reinforced, making the cabinet into a monolith stronger than the sum of its parts. The inherent strength of the geometric cabinet profile distributes the load points across a larger cabinet area providing greater support and rigidity than can be achieved with traditional square cabinet geometry.
