Intended to blend with outdoor environments, the Rock Monitor will ROCK your (outside) world.

ONTARIO, CANADA - CEDIA EXPO 2005 - Paradigm introduces the Rock Monitor™ 60 -SM outdoor speaker - a high -performance speaker alternative designed for stealthful outdoor applications. Creating a subtle and aesthetically pleasing outdoor entertainment zone, the versatile Rock Monitor allows audio lovers to take the high -quality audio performance normally associated with interior speaker options to the great outdoors.

Housed in weather -resistant textured faux -stone, Rock Monitor's three available finishes (Fieldstone, Northeastern Dark Granite and Western Sandstone) complement any outdoor setting while blending naturally into the landscape. With the discreet rock -replica cabinets, owners can place mulitple Rock Monitors throughout the yard to add to the garden décor while providing an unobtrusive listening zone; put the Rock Monitor in a flower bed, on a deck/patio or around a pool and enjoy the luxury of high -performance audio in the comfort of your backyard.

Featuring award -winning Monitor Series technology, the speaker has two 1 -inch PTD™ pure -titanium dome tweeters that are offset at 60 degree angles for Dual Directional™ sound reproduction. The Rock Monitor's 6 -1/2 -inch woofer with dual voice coils provides wider than normal dispersion with clarity and depth to overcome outside background noise. Able to produce a large soundfield, the Rock Monitor allows owners versatile placement applications while providing powerful audio performance.

For smaller areas, a single Rock Monitor can produce quality stereo sound. In larger yards, multiple Rock Monitor speakers can be used to cover the desired area reducing L/R sound imbalances that occur with separate stereo speakers as people move around or are seated closer to one speaker than the other. A versatile speaker, Rock Monitors can also be wired in mono and used traditionally as a stereo pair. At 14" x 13" x 13", the weather -resistant 12 lbs. Rock Monitor comes with a security stake and cable to prevent theft or unauthorized movement.

The Rock Monitor 60 -SM is available in Fieldstone, Northeastern Dark Granite and Western Sandstone, and pricing will be announced at CEDIA 2005.
