About the Paradigm Millenia LP Trio
Excitingly clear sound for your home theater's front channels
Excitingly clear sound for your home theater's front channels
If decor is a high priority for you, you might be looking for alternatives to a traditional home theater speaker setup. After all, tower speakers can be huge, and even smaller stand-mount speakers take up floor space. Paradigm heard your concerns and introduced the Millenia LP Trio for the kind of setup you're after. It's basically three high-performance speakers built into one attractive wall-mountable sound bar, with dedicated woofers and tweeters for your home theater's left, center, and right channels. This single speaker effortlessly handles your front soundstage and delivers clean, engaging sound, despite a super-slim profile that's only 2" deep. The bar's 48" width makes it an excellent fit underneath a 55" or larger TV.
A total of nine drivers, three for each channel, gives this speaker some serious output. Each channel gets a 1" tweeter featuring Paradigm's patented S-PAL (Satin-anodized Pure Aluminum) material, giving you plenty of upper-frequency goodness without being too sharp. The tweeters are housed in a rigid, mineral-filled ABS chassis and use a Perforated Aluminum Mesh Screen™ guard with a phase ring tucked away inside it, both to protect the tweeter and to maintain a wide soundstage with effortless high-frequency extension.
The six 4-1/2" bass/midrange drivers, two per channel, use an anodized unibody cone that deflects any unwanted frequencies outside of the drivers' crossover point. What that means is the drivers can do their own thing without their sound being drowned out or muddied by other frequencies. The carefully crafted surrounds help control the in-and-out motion of the cones, allowing the drivers to remain agile and accurate. Speaking of motion, the high-performance 1-1/2" aluminum voice coil, Nomex spider, and powerful neodymium magnet underneath the cone are the real workhorses of the operation. Together, they're responsible for moving the drivers and keeping them quick and articulate.
What you'll need
The LP Trio will sound its best when used with a separate subwoofer — especially to provide deep rumbling effects that make home theater so much fun. Grabbing one like Paradigm's MilleniaSub will help complete your setup and give your music and movies depth. Unlike most sound bars, this speaker doesn't have any power built-in, so you'll connect it to a home theater receiver.
The LP Trio was designed to be mounted on the wall. You can use the included wall-mounting bracket to hang it below your TV for a sleek, modern look. It also includes horizontal stands for placing it directly on an A/V cabinet or TV stand.
Partnered with Canada's National Research Center
Paradigm is partnered with Canada's largest federal research and development organization, the National Research Center (NRC). The two research the nature of sound and human hearing together, and their findings influence the design and performance of Paradigm's loudspeakers and subwoofers. The result is a uniquely realistic sound that's backed by ample scientific research.

Passive 3-Channel Soundbar Loudspeaker: The Paradigm Millenia LP Trio is a passive 3-channel soundbar that incorporates left, center, and right channels into one speaker enclosure. The Millenia LP Trio soundbar will act as your home theater system's front left, center, and front right speakers. Add rear speakers and a powered subwoofer (all sold separately - see Accessories Tab) to complete your home theater setup.
Note: The Paradigm Millenia LP Trio is a passive soundbar speaker (not self-powered) and will require separate amplification from an AV receiver with front left, front right, and center channel speaker outputs.
Three 1" Dome Tweeters: The Millenia LP Trio features a total of three 1" dome tweeters; one tweeter for each channel (Front Left, Center, Front Right). Each tweeter consists of a S-PAL (satin-anodized pure aluminum) dome with a PPA (Perforated Phase Alignment) lens, plus an advanced motor structure with extruded aluminum heat sink and a rigid mineral-filled ABS chassis for exceptional high-frequency detail and clarity without unwanted resonances and distortion.
- S-PAL (Satin-Anodized Pure Aluminum): S-PAL (satin-anodized pure aluminum) offers a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio, plus outstanding internal damping for exceptional high-frequency detail and clarity without unwanted resonances and distortion. Aluminum yields less distortion than commonly-used polypropylene, resulting in cleaner and clear high-frequency sound.
- PPA (Perforated Phase Alignment) Lens: The S-PAL tweeter incorporates Paradigm's patented PPA (Perforated Phase Alignment) Lens. This exclusive design acts as a refined phase plug, blocking a wide range of out-of-phase frequencies which increases and smooths output without coloring the sound. Both visually stunning and functional, Paradigm's signature PPA Lens technology improves performance while also protecting the tweeter from getting damaged.
Six 4.5" Midrange/Midbass Drivers: The Millenia LP Trio soundbar houses a total of six 4.5" midrange/midbass drivers; two midrange/midbass drivers for each channel (Front Left, Center, Front Right). Each 4.5" midrange/midbass driver features a high-performance anodized-aluminum unibody cone with an optimized nitrite-rubber surround for excellent excursion and control. The 4.5" midrange/midbass drivers also incorporate a high-performance motor assembly that includes a 1.5" high-temperature aluminum voice-coil and powerful neodymium magnet for high power handling capabilities.
Spring Post Terminals: The Paradigm Millenia LP Trio soundbar is outfitted with a set of spring-post terminals for each of its 3 channels (Front Left, Center, and Front Right). These spring post terminals will accept bare wire up to 12AWG and pin-connectors. The spring-post terminals will not accept banana plugs or spade-lugs.
Note: The Millenia LP Trio is a passive soundbar (not self-powered) and will require connection to an AV receiver with Front Left, Front Right, and Center amplifier channels.
Mounting & Placement Options: The Paradigm Millenia LP Trio soundbar is an ideal match for most 55" and up flat-panel TVs. It can be mounted on a tabletop or shelf using the included feet or mounted on a wall using the included wall-mount bracket. The feet allow for slight angle adjustment, while the wall-mount bracket is fixed and does not offer any angle adjustment. Mount the soundbar speaker horizontally, directly above or below your TV, whichever position brings sound closer to ear level. Keep in mind, the Millenia LP Trio speaker will allow for higher than usual placement of the high-frequency drivers, a particularly important feature when wall mounting.
- Dimensions With Mounting Feet: 48.0625" (w) x 6.375" (h) x 3.8125" (d)
- Dimensions With Wall Bracket: 48.0625" (w) x 6.4375" (h) x 2.0" (d)
Note: The Millenia LP Trio has to be used with either the mounting feet or wall-bracket installed. Because of its slim cabinet design, the speaker cannot be mounted on a flat surface without the horizontal feet. The speaker is not designed to work with any other 3rd party wall-bracket.
Millenia Series: The Millenia Series offers sophisticated state-of-the-art Paradigm speaker technology wrapped in a sleek cabinet design to complement today's flat-panel televisions. Paradigm's Millenia Series consists of one satellite loudspeaker (Millenia One), two LCR loudspeakers (LP 2 / LP XL), one soundbar speaker (LP Trio), and a compact powered subwoofer (Millenia Sub) - all sold separately.
NRC Partnership: 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.
