The MilleniaSub is considerably more complex than the MilleniaOne, housing two bass drivers, a sophsticated electronic crossover and a very powerful amplifier in its slim, compact form.

"Back to Back Bipolar Dual Woofer Design... inherently vibration cancelling. Woofers fire in opposite directions resulting in physical cancellation of cabinet vibration and a massive reduction in the potential for sound-destroying resonances.

"Killer Polymer Monocoque Cone Design... the outer skin of the cone bears the brunt of the motion stress brought on by extended cone movement. Cone is FEA-optimized (Finite Element Analysis) for maximum strength-to-weight ratio.

"Over-Molded Corrugated Santoprene Surround... well known performance advantages like high excursion and symmetrical compliance as well as increased longevity remiscent of our RVC-12SQ in-wall sub = higher outout, lower distortion; every bass note sounds disinct.

"Radical Dustcap Design... braced through the center and adhered to the cone's edge to move primary cone breakup mode to outside the woofer's operating band. Reduced distortion and improved frequency response.

"FEA-Optimized Motor Structure... 1" voice coil, high energy rare-earth neodymium ring magnets.

"5-mm Thick Die-Cast Aluminum Cabinet... ultra-rigid but also super slim to fit in al the state-of-the-art technology.

"Built-in wireless receiver for wireless signal input option.

"USB port for Perfect Bass Kit equalization.

"Advanced Ultra-Class-D Amplifier... Paradigm's Digital Signal Processing Design. Sophisticated mathematical algorithms shape frequency response ensuring accurate, consistent musicla bass without distortion even at highest output levels."

This cutaway view of the MilleniaSub shows off its many high tech features.

The MilleniaSub is about as big as a standard briefcase — pretty darn small for a subwoofer. The three knobs on the front are controls for level, crossover frequency, and phase. The "P" logo lights up blue when the sub is powered up; it powers off automatically when no input signal is sensed.

Like the MilleniaOne, the sub can be positioned vertically as in the previous photo or horizontally on four felt-padded, hefty, locking metal feet. Here, too, is a closeup of the unusually flat 13 x 4" bass driver with its corrugated surround.

Input panel has AC jack, USB port and phono input plug. Note big thumbscrews that attach sturdy plastic base for vertical operation.

Note: The MilleniaSub design did not just materialize out of the blue. It is, in fact, an adaptation of a low profile subwoofer developed for in-wall mounting that Paradigm has offered for some time. For details, see this page on the RVC-12SQ reference in-wall subwoofer.
