Fast and articulate extended bass response
Each 6-1/2-inch woofer has its own separate acoustic chamber tuned with a front-facing port to achieve incredible control and spatial, dynamic sound quality. Dividing and individually porting the chamber eliminates standing waves inside the X2T's tall, slim speaker cabinet. The placement of the woofers in multiple positions also reduces the first reflection phenomenon, minimizing the negative effects of the primary ‘floor bounce' reflections, creating a much more accurate and tuneful bass performance. The result being low distortion bass response that speaks with powerful authority.
Elevated performance in the all-important midrange frequencies
The Imagine X2T is a true three-way speaker that utilizes a separate midrange driver in its own tuned enclosure for ideal dispersion and low distortion at high SPLs (Sound Pressure Levels). The all-new driver is designed specifically for the Imagine X2T. Featuring an injection-molded poly-filled carbon fiber cone, the 5-1/4-inch midrange driver features a novel shape and filleted surround to optimize the reproduction of voices. The narrow cabinet design contributes by preventing diffraction effects that can create early acoustic reflections that colour the sound of voices and instruments.
Pure Titanium tweeter dome for extended high frequencies
The one-inch dome combines a high stiffness-to-mass ratio for ultra-fast transients and extended response without breakup until well beyond audibility. The high temperature voice coil with ferrofluid cooling allows for high SPL output without compression, and the rare-earth neodymium motor magnet gives high sensitivity and accurate response at the lower end of its response range. A carefully engineered phase plug (the little plate in front of the dome) extends high frequency response and helps control the inevitable high frequency breakup mode while protecting the delicate dome from prying fingers.
The new Imagine X series: Real speakers for real people
PSB’s new Imagine X series was created with one objective: to reproduce the most accurate sound for the money. The four models in the series are carefully matched in timbre to give you the flexibility to combine any of them to work together in a variety of rooms and system setups.
Acoustic research makes the difference
Through many years of research at the National Research Council Canada (NRC), home to one of the world's most advanced acoustical laboratories, PSB’s design team has learned not only what people love to hear, but also how they hear it in a room. Critical to the Imagine X design is this research into human perception of sound using double-blind listening tests. Double-blind testing removes any listener bias, thus providing the most accurate test result. It allows PSB to understand what is most important to listeners and allows the company to create the ideal blend of performance and price for every application. In 1974, PSB was the first company to use the NRC for loudspeaker development, and remains the most active user of the facility today.
"By conducting carefully controlled blind speaker tests, then measuring all the speakers to see what sonic characteristics appealed to the listeners in the tests, we were able to figure out what matters and what doesn't."
