The down -firing Seismic™ 12 featuring dual high -velocity 10" passive radiators, consistently delivers rock -solid bass performance.

Combining cutting -edge Paradigm® Reference technology and design and delivering remarkable precision and accuracy, this is the subwoofer that lovers of home theater and bass aficionados have been waiting for.

The epitome of elegance, yet capable of sheer brute power, beneath the refined exterior of the Seismic™ 12 lie superb examples of the company's award -winning Reference technology, including a powerful 10 -inch high -excursion co -polymer polypropylene bass driver, high -pressure die -cast aluminum chassis and the company's proprietary AVS™ Airflow Ventilation Cooling system, powerful computer -optimized magnet/motor structures.
