We at Paradigm are thrilled to present you with the latest addition to our range of affordable and performance-oriented Custom Installation products. The Paradigm DCS-208 is an all-new design, improving and expanding on the innovations you’ve come to expect from us in the world of performance audio. The Paradigm DCS-208, the perfect blend of performance and practicality. With powerful bass and zero-footprint, you get the best of both worlds, allowing you to add bass to any room without taking up valuable floor space.
Easy to Install, Anywhere
A Fire Rated integrated enclosure makes the DCS-208 suitable for residential and commercial applications. Designed for fast installation into existing rooms without the need for expensive and time-consuming drywall repairs. Simple installation, no footprint, Paradigm performance.
Proven Paradigm Performance
Distributed Audio Meets Its Match
Anthem’s MDX series amplifiers have made adding bass to whole home music systems easier than ever. For these distributed audio systems, the DCS-208FR3 can easily be driven off the bridged “subwoofer output” allowing you to take advantage of the MDX’s robust bass management, custom DSP profiles, and advanced ARC Genesis room correction for optimized performance in any environment.
Performance and Practicality All-In-One
Ultra Rigid Stamped Steel chassis and baffles and die-cast aluminum clamps add strength and rigidity for better bass performance, along with a more durable installation.
Magnetically attached grilles: neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place.
Integrated Fire-Rated Back-box Enclosure for an Easy and Reliable Install 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.
Premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors, capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.
In-Room or In-Wall, How about both?
Flexibility is Everything
