Paradigm Releases DCS-208IW3 In-Wall Subwoofer

Paradigm says “subwoofers should not be seen but heard”, and that's why it has announced the addition of the DCS-208IW3 in-wall subwoofer to its vast offering of custom installation solutions.

The proudly Canadian giant of loudspeakers says its new addition is a more conventional version of the DCS-208FR3. Rather than featuring a fire-rated backbox, the DCS-208IW3 is designed for use with its new construction backbox (sold separately), the BX-208, or it can be retro-fitted without a backbox.

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. 

The DCS-208 in-wall subwoofers are also compatible with the Paradigm X-300 subwoofer amplifiers. Custom DSP profiles maximise subwoofer performance, while onboard Anthem Room Correction (ARC) optimises the response for any environment. 

Purpose-built for high output from a compact enclosure, with high efficiency and low distortion, the dual, 8” High-Excursion Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Polypropylene woofers have a larger surface area than a 10” sub for powerful, accurate bass. The optional enclosure ensures consistent performance in any application while reducing sound transmission to other areas of the home.

Available in late August 2022, the Paradigm DCS-208 will sell for $949 RRP.
