Paradigm Defiance X12 12" Powered Subwoofer

Ultimate, Uncompromising Bass.

12 Driver with Patented ART Surround, 650W RMS (1300W Dynamic Peak), App Control, High-Velocity Low-Turbulence Ported Design, Anthem Room Correction (ARC ) Included.

Defiance subwoofers deliver pure power, unleashed by clean, efficient amplification in a mix of six models, from entry-level to ultimate performance. With app control and Anthem Room Correction (ARC ), you'll have powerful, perfectly balanced bass at your fingertips.

Optional Wireless Module

Place your subwoofer anywhere in your room, with no inconvenient cabling, and without sacrificing speed or performance. The Defiance WT Wireless Module* (sold separately)features fast and clear 2.4 GHz dynamic frequency selection with instant error correction and a 50ft range.

Patented Active Ridge Technology (ART )

The farther the driver can freely move, the deeper the bass it can generate. Patented* ART driver design overmolds durable driver surrounds to allow the farthest possible throw without distortion or destruction. Greater excursion results in a measured 3dB gain in output, with a 50% reduction in audible distortion compared to drivers held back by standard surrounds.

* US patents: D654,4795 and 8,340,340B2.
Only available on Defiance X15, X12, and X10.

Anthem Room Correction (ARC )

Using your mobile device or optional calibrated microphone (included with Defiance X models, sold separately on Defiance V models*), ARC measures your space, compares it to lab standard using proprietary advanced DSP algorithms, and instantly removes performance-robbing anomalies. The result is easy to hear: realistically blended, accurately rendered deep bass. Professional room correction at the touch of a button.
