.the Paradigm Prestige 2000SW subwoofer carries a premium pricetag, but it offers three advantages that many, if not most, high-end subs do not. First, its output is competitive with that of many of the best home theater subs on the market. Second, its distortion is among the lowest I've measured, and it sounds tight and punchy as hell. And third, it includes one of the best subwoofer auto EQ systems available. The 2000SW is a great choice for upscale customers who want precise, high-output bass without the boom--and they want it in a beautiful package that looks as good as it sounds.
The overall sound quality coming from the Paradigm subwoofer was excellent, particularly with music. It reproduced detailed notes and bass lines with resounding clarity and an admirable lack of distortion. For all practical purposes, one of the 2000SW subwoofers was able to produce more than enough output to energize my room, pretty effortlessly, down to just about 20 Hz before a fairly steep roll off of the signal. Although I’ve had subwoofers that have played flat down to about 10 Hz in this room, very few of them have sounded as clean as this Paradigm has in its given operating range.
These speakers seriously rocked on movies and the performance on two-channel music was so intoxicating that sometimes I started to feel the speakers were tailor made for whatever song I was listening to until the next song came on and then I thought the speakers were made just for that song. This is what you get with properly engineered speakers – you get performance that works for all sorts of material and uses. It’s because these speaker pass the signal with the least interpretation or distortion on their part.
aradigm’s Prestige 2000SW is an awe-inducing, powered subwoofer that can handle the depths of most any movie sound effect, but it is equally adept at transmitting the proper bass frequencies from your favorite hi-res music. From Rock to Classical to bombastic action flicks, I do not see how you could do any better in the bass department.
