Paradigm’s New AMS Marine Speakers

Paradigm’s new X-treme Moisture Application speakers “rock” the boat while withstanding harsh weather elements.

Excessive moisture, harsh UV rays, fluctuation in temperature, corrosive salt spray, fog, ice, snow, and even wind can be detrimental to the average marine speaker’s performance. Paradigm's superior AMS “X” marine models are designed to withstand full exposure to any environment where excessive moisture is a problem. For optimum performance in extreme atmospheres, “X” models feature crossover networks treated with a protective conformal coating and stainless steel grilles, brackets, and hardware, providing rigorous protection from excessive moisture.

The area behind the boat wall or ceiling is essentially an infinite baffle, leaving a speaker prone to uncontrolled resonances and standing waves. Bass can become bloated with poor definition and midrange neutrality, clarity and imaging all suffer. By contrast, the rigid high-strength design of the AMS mounting system further increases wall rigidity by sandwiching and strengthening the area around the mounting hole.

Trickle-down technology from the award-winning high-end Paradigm® Reference Series, these exceptionally rigid, low-mass domes, with treated textile suspensions, ensure remarkably uniform and instantaneous power response. Drivers exhibit astonishing timbral clarity and transparency, usually associated with the best freestanding designs.

Not your typical in-wall/in-ceiling application, AMS v.3 circuit boards have been updated to FR-4 military specifications. They also boast the highest-quality component parts, hand-selected for close tolerance: film capacitors; ceramic resistors; steel air/core inductors. In this latest generation, crossovers have been carefully “tweaked” for better frequency and phase response.

AMS “X” model speakers are designed for easy drop-in installation.
