PSB IMAGE C4 Details

PSB Image C4: The center will hold

The PSB Image C4 center-channel speaker handles all the dialog and sound effects of today’s digital surround sound formats with aplomb.

  • 1-inch titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid and neodymium magnets
  • Two 4-inch woofers with proprietary injection molded clay/ceramic-filled polypropylene cone
  • Horizontal orientation is easy to place near flat-panel TVs
  • Gold-plated five-way binding posts for the best connection possible
A pair of four-inch woofers with one-inch titanium tweeter in this two-way horizontal format makes the Image C4 center channel easy to place near today’s slimmest flat-screen TVs. Because the center-channel is the most important position in any surround system, PSB has engineered the Image C4 to rigorous standards of accuracy, power handling, and bass extension. These combine for solid sound whether the magnetically shielded C4 is used to complement a pair of Image bookshelf or tower modesl or in an identical left/center/right front array. The C4 is tonally matched to the entire Image line, and unlike many other center speakers it is tuned for correct balance from its real-world location on top or below a television, where the large, acoustically reflective screen will otherwise significantly degrade vocal clarity.

Audiophile-grade terminals, proprietary-design drivers, and a host of mounting options are a few of the details you won’t find on other “value” speakers.

More about the Image Series
While Image maintains its affordability, the technology adopted from PSB’s flagship Synchrony and sophisticated Imagine speakers raises this series above the norm. Smartly incorporated features include long-excursion, high-output woofers and one-inch titanium dome tweeters borrowed from the Synchrony design. This allows for remarkably compact designs that rival much larger conventional speakers. The Image Series also takes fashion cues from its siblings with a curvier silhouette and streamlined look.

The Image Series is carefully matched in timbre so virtually any combination of speakers will work seamlessly together in any space or setup — incredible flexibility that will appeal to music lovers and home theatre buffs alike. With eight models to suit a broad range of needs, there’s plenty of reason to audition the new Image Series.

Out of the lab and into your home
Led by Founder and Chief Designer Paul Barton, the PSB team’s goal is to design speakers that are true to nature. Critical to the Image Series design is research and rigorous testing conducted at the National Research Council Canada (NRC), home to one of the world’s most sophisticated acoustical laboratories. PSB was the first company to use the NRC for loudspeaker development in 1974 and remains the most active user of the facility today. The scientific resources at the NRC played an important role in the development of Image and allowed PSB’s engineers to focus on their primary goal — delivering real sound for real people.
