Paradigm Electronics of Ontario, Canada is recalling about 2200 of its Paradigm Cinema-brand subwoofer audio components manufactured in China.
According to Paradigm, the subwoofer can overheat when the speaker system is played at high outputs for an extended period of time. This risk of overheating poses a fire hazard to consumers. The company says that it has received one report of a subwoofer overheating, causing minor property damage, but no reports of injuries.
The recalled subwoofers were sold through small specialty stores and independent audio products dealers nationwide, as well as online through Amazon.com, from July 2009 through August 2010 for about $700.
