2014 Editors' Choice Award

The Absolute Sound 2014 Editors' Choice Awards

The Paradigm SUB 2 may be one of the few subwoofers that can be properly mated with planar loudspeakers. Its lightning-fast ability to project front, rear, and sideways means that it is simply impossible to detect where it is positioned. The SUB 2 features what Paradigm calls Vibration-Canceling Design Architecture, and the design clearly delivers the goods. The hexagonal cabinet can make it hard to install, but once in place the SUB 2 can deliver a crushing 112dB at 10Hz.

Paradigm SUB 2 Signature Reference Six-Driver Powered Subwoofer: “Audiophile Recording Ace Reviews T

Within the first couple of seconds of that first depth charge explosion, I knew the SUB 2 was a game changer. The entire room shook and the leather in the theater chairs flapped like they were in a giant wind storm... The Paradigm SUB 2 Reference Signature subwoofer may be the best-measuring, self-enclosed, powered home cinema subwoofer ever made!

Paradigm SUB 2 Subwoofer Review

The SUB 2 is insanely expensive, unreasonably heavy, and all around ridiculous in almost every way I can imagine – and despite all that, I love it. It is a subwoofer that throws the entire concept of ROI out the window and is a testament to what engineers can accomplish given free rein to innovate. While I certainly can’t afford one – the SUB 2 deserves to be on the short list of anyone who can. It’s big, it’s a little stupid, and it’s the best commercial subwoofer I’ve ever encountered.

Paradigm Signature Sub 2 Subwoofer Review

Most of my friends have seen so many speakers come through my house that they barely get a second glance or draw a comment anymore. Not the Sub 2, it invariably received comments and questions. Paradigm’s Signature Sub 2 is undoubtedly one of the most impressively engineered powered subwoofers on the market today. If this fine subwoofer is within your financial means you would be remiss to not give it an audition.

Paradigm Reference Signature SUB 2 Subwoofer

I’ve never heard a sub that approaches the performance of the Paradigm Reference Signature SUB 2. This is 230 pounds of pure, pulverizing home theater excitement, and it earns my highest recommendation. Unlike other subs, you needn’t worry about whether your associated gear is up to the challenge. With this one, you need to be sure your house is structurally sound enough to withstand it.

Paradigm Signature Sub 2 review. The most powerful active subwoofer ever built...

The simple fact is I couldn't stress this product in any way. You will reach the limit of what you think is sane far sooner than you will find any limit in the Signature Sub 2. It's an absolute Reference Status subwoofer, and I love it.

Paradigm Reference Signature Sub 2 Subwoofer

The Paradigm Reference Signature Sub 2 is a tremendously ambitious effort that redefines what should be expected of a powered subwoofer. I haven’t experienced another subwoofer that I think is as capable...Find a Sub 2 you can demo, and I think you’ll come to the conclusion I have. Get it. Play it. Be moved by it.
