“This subwoofer’s immense 2,200W power output – 4,400W on peaks – doesn’t automatically make it the best thing we’ve heard. Instead, it’s the overall quality of engineering that counts, which is where the XR 13 excels. It may not have the largest footprint around, but clever use is made of its 325mm high-excursion driver, set into a seriously robust cabinet. The result is superlative bass control, allied to ultra-low distortion. Whether you’re playing music or movies, it delivers lightning-fast low frequencies that snap like a firecracker, allied to breathtaking dynamic power.” – stereonet Product of the Year ’24

A Master Class in Design and Engineering
The all-new XR subwoofers are a master class in design and engineering refinement that challenges what is possible from a compact, sealed subwoofer design. Our goal was to push the boundaries of performance while never losing sight of aesthetics by wrapping everything up into a suitable size that won’t ever feel out of place.
Purposefully Beautiful and Intentionally Functional
The faceted design of Paradigm XR13 Subwoofer’s cabinet is not only purposefully beautiful but intentionally functional. The geometric profile elegantly distributes the massive load of housing the powerful woofer inside, providing greater strength and rigidity than traditional rectangular designs. The custom 2″ thick MDF front baffle adds further rigidity to the cabinet and acts as the backbone necessary to withstand the brutal forces of the massive woofer and magnet within.
Cascade-Fusion bracing further increases cabinet rigidity for maximum acoustic precision while also breaking up standing waves internally, which provides more accuracy and greater bass clarity. Did you know? During early development, the XR woofers were able to split the test cabinets at the seams from their brute force! Cascade-Fusion bracing was the logical solution, adding strength and beauty to this legendary bass recipe.
A Match Made in Heaven
XR’s cabinet embodies our “Art Embracing Science” philosophy. It’s the perfect complement to any system and blends perfectly with our award-winning Founder series of loudspeakers, even available in the same gorgeous Walnut, Black Walnut, Piano Black, and exclusive MidnightCherry finishes.
Best-in-Class Premium-Grade Finishes
XR cabinets are offered in a variety of beautiful premium-grade finishes: Walnut and Black Walnut have a smooth satin finish with distinctive wood grain. Our exclusive Midnight Cherry and Piano Black feature a luxurious hand-rubbed, high-gloss finish.
XR Design Philosophy
XR is not only about maximizing output but minimizing distortion too. This one-two-punch design philosophy is bolstered by the inclusion of exclusive Paradigm technologies not found elsewhere. The Paradigm XR13 Subwoofer turns up the bass by turning down the noise!
Advanced Shock-Mount Technology
Paradigm’s exclusive Advanced Shock-Mount enabled outriggers are designed with multi-layered durometer rubber-metal matrices to provide industry-leading isolation whose benefits can be measured and heard in the real world.
It doesn’t get much better than this
To put it simply, XR woofers are the most powerful speaker drivers that Paradigm has ever created. With output capability so high that some of our test cabinets were literally busted open from the massive forces generated inside. While incredibly powerful and capable of extreme output, power without control is meaningless. To that end, the XR’s woofer is also a super low distortion design, significantly outclassing its intended competitors in not only distortion but maximum output, especially for a subwoofer this compact and beautiful.
