Paradigm Signature Designer Series In-Wall Speakers


Introduction to the Paradigm Signature In-Wall Speakers

Having previously enjoyed the opportunity to review the Paradigm SA-15R-SM In-Ceiling speakers, I jumped at the opportunity to evaluate another set in my home theater. Paradigm's line-up of in-wall/in-ceiling speakers includes both the SA Series v.3 and the top-of-the-line Signature Series v.3. When deciding to go with permanently installed speakers, one does not want to choose the wrong speakers. Once that template is drawn and the hole is cut, there is no going back. It is also very difficult to audition in-walls since everyone's room has different acoustical properties. Making sure you buy the correct speaker that suit your needs and will keep your ears happy is critical with permanent installs. With that in mind, choosing the top of the line Paradigm Signature SIG-1.5R-30 and SIG-ADP's for my home theater would seemingly stack the odds of success in my favor.
