The Servo-15, as its name implies, contains a BIG 15" servo-controlled bass driver. How BIG is it? Well, I’ll tell you -- it makes the 10" woofers in my InnerSound Eros speakers look like midrange drivers! Actually the Kevlar-fiber composite cone measures about 15", while its massive die-cast aluminum frame measures 16" to 17 3/4", making it appear more like an 18" woofer. The cabinet itself is a sealed enclosure, measuring a modest 20"H x 18"W x 23"D and weighing in at about 80 pounds. A pop-off black fabric grille with the Paradigm logo adorns the front baffle of the front-firing driver. Four large black plastic feet couple the subwoofer to one’s flooring and make the woofer easy to slide around the room (I wonder if the Vibrapod people know about this!).
Good products ask questions of their owners. The Paradigm 15 is that kind of product. Far from sitting there and doing it’s job quietly and predictably, the Servo 15 will spring a few surprises and highlight bass-sounds that you never knew were there.
This is not the sub necessarily to wind up and scare your friends, impress the kids, or scare the cat (although it did do that). It is however a sub to savour that will work its way onto your must-keep if the house goes up in flames list.
The Paradigm Servo 15 is a refined stunner of a product that deserves good room placement, a good system and great music or soundtracks to get the best out of it.
Give it some quality source material and some quality time and it’ll earn its keep and earn a fair amount of respect too!
