PSB Imagine XB Details

PSB Imagine XB Bookshelf Speaker: Affordable high-performance in a bookshelf model
  • Two-way design
  • Woofer: 1 x 5-1/4-inch Injection Molded Clay/Ceramic reinforced Polypropylene Cone with Rubber Surround and Dual Magnets
  • Tweeter: 1-inch Titanium Dome with Ferrofluid Neodymium Magnet
The PSB Imagine XB bookshelf speaker is a compact two-way model that offers a 5-1/4-inch woofer and one-inch titanium dome tweeter. It shares the injection-molded, clay/ceramic reinforced polypropylene designs of the Imagine X towers with dual magnet and rubber surround. The critically tuned cabinet employs a rear-facing port for high sensitivity and extended bass response.

The Imagine XB is ideal for smaller rooms or in concert with a powered subwoofer for a compact full-range system. Perfectly timbre-matched with the X1T and X2T towers, the XB is a great choice for surround channels in home cinema installations.

The essentials.
True-to-nature sound is the design goal of all PSB Speakers. Imagine X brings a new level of realism to these affordable speakers applying the latest speaker materials and technology to PSB's most popular models. PSB's designers focused on simplicity—distilling sound to its purest essence — in order to bring listeners the experience that they really love.

Real sound for real people
Four models, one objective: to reproduce the most accurate sound available for the money. Imagine X models are all carefully matched in timbre, giving you flexibility to combine any of the models to work together in many different 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."

    — Paul Barton, PSB Founder and Chief Designer
