Persona C

Passive Center Channel Loudspeaker

The Persona C Center Channel is the starting point for a remarkable home theater system. Timbre-matched to the Persona line, with identical dispersion, transitions are seamless and realistic.

Persona’s tandem Truextent® Beryllium tweeter and mid-range driver system anchors the action to your screen with an extraordinary level of accurate detail. For truly stupendous theatrics, imagine a Persona C Center Channel with a pair of Persona 9Hs on either side! As with the whole Persona line, the performance of Persona C is nearly free of common loudspeaker-generated interference like distortion or tonal coloration.

The evolution of luxury is a heritage of high performance and value.

Engineered to “take on the persona” of your audio performance, each speaker virtually disappears behind an unprecedented level of realism and transparency. Whether you’re passionate about classic two-channel stereo, or an enveloping multichannel home theater system, Persona’s combination of innovation, performance and elegance introduces luxury in an indulgent new class of loudspeaker.

Driver Materials

99.9% Pure Beryllium

One of the keys to Persona’s luxury and value is our use of Beryllium, the absolute best diaphragm material, typically found only in speakers costing considerably more. Persona uses Truextent® Pure Beryllium that is specially formulated to be exponentially stiffer and significantly lighter than other premium diaphragm materials. It enables superior transient response and virtual transparency, with vanishingly low audible coloration.

Beryllium is a rare chemical element (Be) with low mass, high tensile strength and high thermal stability.

It is incredibly rigid and lightweight; everything an audio engineer desires in a speaker cone. In fact, Beryllium has been used in the audio industry since the 1970s. Because of its use in only the finest (and most expensive) audio equipment, it has retained a certain “cult” status.

Precise control of the manufacturing process produces Beryllium with a highly uniform grain structure. This material is many times more rigid and less dense than more common cone materials. In industry testing, our Beryllium cone material exhibits substantial improvements in durability, speed, and reduced interference. It can add more than an octave of distortion-free output.

Tandem Beryllium drivers reveal the full range of high performance.

Paradigm’s Persona is the only loudspeaker in its class to achieve this level of performance using Beryllium material for both midrange and tweeter drivers. Every model in the Persona Series features Truextent Beryllium driver systems, and each model achieves a truly unexpected level of high-resolution detail, depth and dynamics thanks in part to rare, extraordinary Beryllium.
