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.

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.
