RARE FOR SALE ON AUDIOGON... Paradigm Active 40 Version 2 in Black Ash finish Perfect condition no Nick or Dings.Original box ,manual come with Include Paradigm Stand J23 Original box as well. Description The Active/40 loudspeakers are part of Paradigm's Reference line and stem from the company’s passive Studio/40 design. However, the Active/40 shouldn’t be thought of as simply a Studio/40 with some amps thrown in. This is quite a different speaker, although cosmetically the two look very similar. Each Active/40 measures 21.5"H by 8.25"W by 13.25"D and weighs in at a hefty 55 pounds, largely due to the amps mounted to the back inside. The speaker uses a 1" aluminum-dome tweeter and two 6.5" woofers -- one with a mica-polymer cone and the other with a polypropylene cone -- all of which Paradigm designed and manufactured. The Active/40 is a 2.5-way design. What this means is that both woofers operate through the lowest frequencies to give the best bass possible. But as the frequency increases, one of the drivers is rolled off and the other travels into the midrange region by itself -- sort of like engines dropping off a rocket, I guess. The tweeter handles what’s above all that. The crossover is a third-order design with the main crossover point at 1.5kHz. Additionally, one woofer crosses electro-acoustically at 400Hz, while the other woofer handles everything up to 1.5kHz. Like all Paradigm models, the Active/40s have been designed for wide and even dispersion. There are two solid-state amplifier modules in each Active/40 speaker: 50 watts for the tweeter and a 125 watts for the midrange/woofer section. Therefore, each speaker is biamped with enough power to drive it to excruciatingly loud levels. Having the amps built right in also allows for a safety feature. If you play the speakers too loudly -- the green "P" on the bottom front turns red, indicating that you should TURN THE MUSIC DOWN! Paypal add 3.5%.Thanks
