I used vinyl electrical tape around the top edge of the tubes to creat a seal when the top plate was installed. As I filled with sand I used a rubber mallet to pack the sand tight. They ended up very heavy and solid and most of all dont ring at all. On the top plate I just used silicone feet from Home Depot and set the speakers on top. Naturally the adhesive side of the silicone feet is facing the top plate. This solution worked out perfectly and trust me I shopped everywhere on the net for stands. The VTI are the most reasonable for the quality you will find.

I took it back apart and noticed some debris in the ferrofluid, and assume that is the cause. My plan is to clean out the old ferrofluid and replace, taking care to keep debris out. Do you agree with my diagnosis?

The 3v2's Paradigm tweeter: Before I replaced it, I noticed that one speaker was muddled compared to the other at high frequencies. I swapped tweeters back and forth, and then speaker cables back and forth, and noticed that the muddled sound followed the tweeter. So I replaced the diaphragm on that tweeter. However, with the new diaphragm, it still sounds muddled at high frequencies compared to the other. But, it's also louder in the mid frequencies, almost as if the crossovers are different. But because the distinction followed the tweeter, it can't be a crossover issue. I am very confused as to why the tweeter is behaving like this, and I am not sure what to try next since I don't know the cause of the difference from one tweeter to the other. (It may be worth mentioning that one of these tweeters was replaced years ago under warranty, but I don't know which one.) Any ideas?

Thank you very much for the help. I took pictures along the way and plan on posting a picture-guide to replacing tweeter diaphragms once I get these issues sorted out.

Thanks,
Ryan
I would appreciate any suggestions anyone has, very much.

I did measure the Monitor 3v2's tweeter voice coil resistances - the good tweeter is at ~29.8ohms, the new muddled one is at ~24.4ohms.

Thank you for any advice anyone has!

I think the Monitor 3v2 tweeter just needed to be broken in. The Vifa tweeter had some crap in the old ferrofluid so I replaced it and it sounds great.

You have such excellent taste in speakers!!
Are your serial numbers all numeric or alpha-numeric? And how many digits are they? Very curious to know. Of corse I'm asking about your 100s and not the sub.

Thanks. :-)

Have to admit that while I love my Monitor 11s, the finish on those Studio 100s makes me envious.

Question Stand for Paradigm CC-690

Any recommendations for a stand for the Paradigm CC-690, other than Paradigm's own J-18C?

Some details: I am a newbie to the hometheater world. I'm building a new HT, with Paradigm Studio 100s and the CC-690 (had to sell some of my organs to fund it ). From what I've heard, it's better to have the center channel on a proper stand (instead of a short media cabinet).
I know Paradigm has the J-18C stand, but at $500 it seems far too expensive. I've also heard the CC-690 has an unusual bottom, plus there's the 38" width and 70lb weight. I've searched far and wide on the interweb, but couldn't find anything that's designed to work with it.

I have been thinking about upgrading my old center 1 speaker. Has anyone mixed a studio series center with Monitor series speakers?

I use Monitor 11 sides, two mini motors as my center rears and the small surrounds for the rear.

My center speaker is 12 years old. My monitor 11 are three years old. I want a cleaner sounding center and I am willing to move up to the studio series if it matches.

For whatever reason dialogue on my current center is not as loud or clean as it used to be.

Thanks.

I haven't heard anything but it's possible. I want to get a pair of tributes but I would get killed if I get anything else. Besides, for 2 channel I would really like a pair of 802 Diamonds.

I hope it's not true. If it is, Paradigm really is going to be scratched off my list after the Prestige line's sonic "fiasco" at CEDIA. They improved the bass frequency reproduction and the tower models' feet compared to the Studios, but everything else was a definite downgrade.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

Did you talk to the reps there? Curious what they had to say about your thoughts on the new speakers.

Amazing to me how they keep upping the price on old speakers

Unfortunately, only a lowly sales rep was left standing as I happened upon the last demo on the CEDIA floor before the wrap up. I would have talked with the official Paradigm "dudes" if they had stuck around. Probably off getting a stiff drink.

Yes, the spiel is still the standard: Paradigm is the best value in home theater.

Not for a long time now.

After reading the initial reviews of the Prestige line I decided to go with the Studio 100's and I couldn't be happier. I have been told that the bass wasn't that good with the 100's however I don't find that to be the case. I bought a JL anyway however the 100's are the best speaker I have owned so far.

It's a shame that it's not available anymore, but I use a Plateau ST-CC-17 (PDF) that cost me ~$150 and works just fine.

If you can't find a CC speaker stand that will handle the CC-690, a perfectly good - and still very cost-effective - option is to use a pair of speaker stands such as, say, this VTI stand ($70/ea.).

The CC-690 has two "feet" on the bottom - which I gather slot/lock into place on the corresponding Paradigm stand - but as long as you can get either...
- both feet onto the top plate of a single CC stand; or
- one foot onto each top plate of a pair of stands,
...you'll be fine.

Thanks eljay. I came across the Plateau in some old threads but couldn't find it on sale anywhere, guess it's been discontinued.
The alternative you suggested - using two single stands - makes sense, I was thinking of it as a backup solution. For that I'm gonna wait till I get the speaker and then figure it out.

I wouldn't be surprised. They have been upping the prices every year. That's why I made the purchase 2 weeks ago. Yeah they Studio line might eventually be discontinued, but that might be a year or 2 out. I want to get in before they up the prices. Pretty happy with my Studio 100's. Also ordered an Emotiva amp. Can't wait until that arrives!

I heard from the local dealer that the Studio line will be discontinued very quickly, potentially end of the year. Dealers will probably start selling them at a discount to clear the inventory and make place for the new Prestige line.

What would you say is the current price to performance leader while still maintaining aesthetics? That was always my draw to the paradigm lineup.

I had planned to upgrade my Monitor 7 setups to the Studio series early next year but seeing that they are looking to dump the lineup and the replacement isn't all that great, I'm wondering if I should look else where.

Would be for 80% movies (blu ray) and 20% misc; gaming, TV, etc.

Looking to add one of the new Denon receivers also to maximize the new features and calibration options.

If you plan on using Atmos enabled speakers (rather than installing on or in ceiling speakers) for the new immersive sound formats, then probably the biggest bang vs. buck are the new Andrew Jones designed Pioneer Elite speakers (the SP-EFS73 towers are $1,400/pair and the SP-EBS73-LR bookshelves are $750/pair). They were quite ear opening (considering their price) at CEDIA. You don't necessarily even have to use the top firing modules to start out... they're good speakers in and of themselves.

The next choice would be Triad and their Silver LCR line of speakers ($1,800/pair MSRP). They would be just slightly higher priced than the Studio 100's, but their audiophile Silver Monitors, the next step up from the LCR's, are superb ($2,000 each and worth every penny)! Outstanding sound quality and quite dynamic for movie soundtracks without sacrificing musical qualities, a decent value for performance, and U.S. made. They are made to order in any variety of veneer choices, or they can be customized to your tastes for a small upcharge.

With any speaker, even a tower, you will need good subs to take the brunt of the low bass.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

So I decided to hang up my 5.1 plans and run 2-channel (with a sub, 2.1?) ... I put my Monitor 3v2's on top of my 9se mkII's and am running each in series per channel. Sounds decent.

Edit: Returning to parallel due to the fact that speakers wired in series to the same channel become out-of-phase. This explains why the speakers in series sounded a little more flat - I had assumed it was because of the increase in total resistance ... I was wrong.

Thanks Dan. I'll keep this post in mind when it's buy time.

Without upgrading my Kuro, the budget looks to be around 10k so I'll start adding these pieces together and see where each option ends up.

For whatever reason dialogue on my current center is not as loud or clean as it used to be.

Thanks.
Hi, I'm running Studio 100s with a CC-390 for HT and it works just fine. Saving a bunch of money.

So I'm looking for a little help. On my system I have the cross-over set to 50 Hz. When I play Demons by Imagine Dragons, I get severe low frequency distortion from the left front speaker only, no matter what the volume is set at. Additionally this happens whether I am playing through iTunes, Spotify, etc.

I really don't want to destroy a driver.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks,

Mike

Decided to use my spare pair of Atoms as height speakers in my basement system. Have to say I really like the effect! They match well with the Monitor 11s I'm using as my mains. So now I'm running 7.1, but without any rear surrounds.
