Performance you can hear, with a look that all but disappears. Paradigm has hit another audio home run with this latest introduction that delivers performance and installation agility in one product.   

The latest addition to the range of affordable and performance- oriented Custom Installation products from Paradigm, the DCS-208IW3 is an all-new design, improving and expanding on the innovations already delivered by this brand. The Paradigm DCS-208IW3 is the perfect blend of performance and practicality, delivering powerful bass from zero-footprint, you get the best of both worlds, allowing you to add bass to any room without taking up valuable floor space.  

The speaker offers many advantages including an ultra-rigid stamped steel chassis and baffles with die-cast aluminium clamps that add strength and rigidity for better bass performance, along with a more durable installation. The magnetically attached grilles using neodymium technology hold the grilles firmly in place. There is also an optional acoustic backbox for an easy and predictable performance install which safeguards internal parts from debris while preventing added sound ‘spillage’ to adjacent rooms. The integrated backer box enclosure also ensures consistent and reliable performance from application to application. Nickel-plated, spring-loaded binding posts feature a larger wire hole to accept higher-gauge wire or banana plugs. Other premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors, capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.

Predictable Acoustics, Proven Paradigm Performance

The dual, 8in High-Excursion Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Polypropylene woofers deliver powerful, accurate bass, whilst the product overall is specifically designed around retrofittable sizing for simplified installation. Minimal footprint with maximum performance, the system is purpose-built for high output from a compact enclosure, with high efficiency and low distortion.  

The DCS-208IW3 gives you flexible installation options as well. Opt to use it in its default open wall cavity configuration and you have an affordable, easily retrofittable subwoofer solution. For those desiring increased control, the optional BX-208 acoustic backbox provides a large enclosure volume to let the DCS-208IW3 stretch its legs while providing acoustic control to reduce sound transmission through the wall.

The DCS-208IW3 can easily be driven from the bridged output of an Anthem MDX for distributed audio systems, allowing installers you to take advantage of the MDX’s robust bass management, DSP profiles, and advanced ARC Genesis room correction for optimised performance in any environment. The DCS-208IW3 is also compatible with the Paradigm X-300 subwoofer amplifier. Custom DSP profiles maximise subwoofer performance, while onboard Anthem Room Correction (ARC) optimises the response for any environment.

The DCS-208IW3 is the first in-wall model in the highly acclaimed and popular Defiance series. The first Defiance in-wall brings the performance of Defiance subs to more rooms than ever before. With a minimalist look, the Paradigm DCS-208IW3 is the perfect way to bring home proven Paradigm bass performance without compromise.
