Product Details:

The Paradigm Founder 120H Hybrid Floorstanding Speakers offer the following features.

Founder is no ordinary loudspeaker. We’ve treated every part, large and small, as if it were the most crucial piece of the whole.

Every component has been thoroughly researched, designed, engineered, and tested. Not only are the drivers completely new,

so is their mounting hardware, the cabinet’s internal structure and shape, and even the feet. By leaving no element

unaddressed, we’ve created something that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

Precision. Control. Dynamics.

These are the pillars the Founder Series was built on.

Every once in a while, something special comes along and changes the rules. The perfect blend of technology, design, and

performance. At the start of Founder’s development, we knew one thing, when Art Embraces Science, anything is possible, and

we exceeded our wildest expectations.

Founder is no ordinary loudspeaker. Every component, large and small, was scrutinized down to the tiniest detail. Every

component has been thoroughly researched, designed, and engineered, exclusively for Founder’s. New patented technologies

were developed for the acoustic platform. The new cabinet platform is not just a stunning design, its unique shape and

integrated structural bracing delivers acoustic performance that cannot be matched by traditional square boxes. By leaving no

element unaddressed, Founder’s is so much more than the sum of its parts.

During our exhaustive research, design, and engineering process, we 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.

Bi-Amp capable + Hybrid Design

All models in the Founder series can be Bi-amped or Bi-wired. That means two channels of amplification can be run to a single

speaker. This not only provides a more direct connection to the components inside the speaker but raises the amount of power

available to it. Taking it a step further, the Founder 120H includes an internal 1000-watt amplifier that powers the bass drivers.

With this amp doing the heavy lifting, your amplifier is free to handle the mid and high frequencies with far less effort. This

hybrid design not only improves the maximum output of the speaker but also allows us to fit this incredible performance into a

smaller cabinet that’s designed as an integrated system. The 120H’s powerful amplifier can also take advantage of our

award-winning ARC Genesis room correction system for reference level accuracy regardless of the challenges presented by the

room. Since ARC Genesis is part of the internal amp’s control system, it can be used with any brand of electronics you wish to
