  Paradigm  Phantom v3  tower front speakers - black :

Home Theatre Sound Review [Aug 2002] :
   The Phantom v.3 is one great-looking speaker : with a narrow front baffle of 197mm [7.75"] and 940mm [37"] in height, the Phantom v.3‘s elegant proportions did not dominate my medium-sized room
   The fit and finish are superb -- my samples came in light-cherry laminate, among the best that I have ever seen. The removable front grille is attractively styled with a curved bottom. Behind the grille is a dark-gray front baffle where the drivers are mounted
   The Phantom v.3, like all Paradigm speakers, is designed to work best with the grilles on. This is a good idea if you have kids running around with scissors {which is not a good thing for numerous reasons!}
   The bad thing is that you may be tempted to leave the grilles off, since the drivers are so attractive

   A 25mm [1"] ceramic/metal composite-dome (CMC) tweeter sits near the top of the v.3‘s front baffle. Directly below the tweeter are two 6.5" metallescent polymer-cone (MPC) woofers
   As I learned from Paradigm, "metallescent" means that the polymer cone is embedded with metal pigments to give the driver low mass with high stiffness, resulting in greater midrange clarity over standard polypropylene woofers. Below the lower 6.5" woofer is a large 3"-diameter front port, allowing easy placement near rear walls
   The Paradigm Phantom v.3 has a single set of gold-plated binding posts in the back. According to Paradigm, the rated sensitivity is 91dB "in-room" with impedance "compatible with 8 ohms." With these specifications, you‘d think these speakers would be easy loads to drive with modest amplification. With my 60Wpc Outlaw Model 1050 receiver, this was indeed my experience
