Easy to Install, Anywhere

DCS-208IW3 gives you flexible installation options. Opt to use it in its default open wall cavity configuration and you have an affordable, easily retrofittable subwoofer solution. For those desiring increased control, the optional BX-208 acoustic backbox provides a large enclosure volume to let the DCS-208IW3 stretch its legs while providing acoustic control to reduce sound transmission through the wall.

Proven Paradigm Performance

Purpose-built for high output from a compact enclosure, with high-efficiency and low distortion. The dual, 8” High-Excursion Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Polypropylene woofers have a larger surface area than a 10” sub for powerful, accurate bass. The optional enclosure ensures consistent performance in any application while reducing sound transmission to other areas of the home.

Distributed Audio Meets Its Match

The DCS-208IW3 can easily be driven off the bridged output of an Anthem® MDX for distributed audio systems, allowing you to take advantage of the MDX’s robust bass management, DSP profiles, and advanced ARC Genesis room correction for optimized performance in any environment.

Performance and Practicality All-In-One

The Paradigm DCS-208IW3, the perfect blend of performance and practicality. With powerful bass and zero-footprint, you get the best of both worlds, allowing you to add bass to any room without taking up valuable floor space.

Other Features:

Ultra Rigid Stamped Steel chassis and baffles and die-cast aluminum clamps add strength and rigidity for better bass performance, along with a more durable installation.

Magnetically attached grilles: neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place.

Optional Acoustic Back-box Enclosure for an easy and predictable performance install safeguards internal parts from debris while preventing added sound ‘spillage’ to adjacent rooms. The optional back-box enclosure also ensures consistent and reliable performance from application to application.

Nickel-plated, spring-loaded binding posts feature a larger wire hole to accept higher-gauge wire or banana plugs.

Premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors, capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.

In-Room or In-Wall, How about both?

The DCS-208IW3 is the first in-wall model in the highly acclaimed Defiance series. The latest Defiance in-wall brings the performance of Defiance subs to more rooms than ever before. With a minimalist look, the Paradigm DCS-208IW3 is the perfect way to bring home proven Paradigm bass performance without compromise. Bass they’ll remember, with a look they’ll forget.

Partnered with the NRC

Paradigm is partnered with Canada’s world-renowned NRC in ongoing research to reveal the true nature of sound and human hearing. Findings influence design and performance specs, resulting in a uniquely realistic listening experience, backed by sound science.
