Center channel speaker plays a dominating role in every home theater. It along with the front left and right speakers is like the sugar to a coffee, i.e. it completes the front LCR stage. It provides you with the prime soundtrack information, dialogues and other such vocals which help you in perceiving the movie. Hence, choosing the right center channel should hold your topmost priority. Paradigm center speakers are one of the best speakers well-known to reproduce clear, crisp speech and dialogues.
Like bookshelf speakers, center channel speakers are also placed on a cabinet or table right in front of the screen, above or below the screen level. In absence of such furniture, the speaker can also be mounted with the help of a stand. Center channel requires an elevated placement so that it is brought in level to your listening arena for you to feel the realism.
Premier 600C are spectacular Paradigm center speakers with a 3-way design of 6 drivers. All the 6 drivers are arranged horizontally with the woofer and bass driver on either extremes, followed by the tweeter and midrange at the center, one above the other. Center channel works best with a 3-way design because it allows the drivers to perform closer while reproducing more diverse sound field.
The 600C Paradigm center speakers are built with a single 1” X-Pal aluminum tweeter, single 4” anodized aluminum midrange woofer cone and two 6.5” carbon-infused polypropylene cones for bass driver. These drivers are further accompanied with two additional passive radiators which serve as the major difference between 500C and 600C. Passive radiators help in gaining extra power.
The tweeter and midrange driver is protected by Paradigm’s hallmark Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA) lens. The bass drivers and passive radiators are employed with Active Ridge technology (ART) surrounds to enable these Paradigm center speakers function efficiently even at high sound pressures.
