PSB Intros New Line of CustomSound In-wall Speakers


PSB-CustomSound-In-wall-speakers-small.jpgPSB Speakers introduced four new CustomSound speakers designed for custom installation, two new in-wall (W-LCR, W-LCR 2) and two in-ceiling (C-LCR, C-SUR) models. All four CustomSound models feature premium materials such as Clay/Ceramic-filled, Polypropylene cone woofers with rubber surround, 1" Titanium dome tweeters with Ferrofluid cooling, Sealed MDF backboxes, frameless magnetic grilles, and gold-plated spring-loaded binding posts.

W-LCR ($799) - an In-Wall, 2-Way design features two 5 ¼" Woofers combined with PSB's 1" Titanium Dome Tweeter to provide sound that is intended for stereo music or as a left, center or right speaker in home theater applications. These can also be used as surround speakers for 5.1 and 7.1 systems.

W-LCR 2 ($999)- an In-Wall, 3-Way design adds a 4" Midrange driver in addition to the two 5 ¼" Woofers providing enhanced output capability and lower distortion, especially at high SPLs. The Midrange and Tweeter are mounted together on a rotatable sub-baffle to allow for vertical and horizontal mounting. This makes the W-LCR 2 a good fit for use as a center speaker in a home theater or for stereo presentations in larger rooms.

C-LCR ($799) - In-Ceiling design uses the same driver complement as the W-LCR but due to the additional depth offered by ceiling mounting provides a useful increase in sensitivity and bass extension. The C-LCR offers a solution for installations where wall mounting is not desired or practical (masonry walls for example).

C-SUR ($799) - the diffuse dispersion characteristics of the CustomSound C-SUR In-Ceiling dual mode speaker is designed for side and back surround channels in a multi-channel home theater. Another possible application is in long narrow spaces like corridors and hallways where one C-SUR can allegedly take the place of two or more In-Ceiling speakers.

PSB maintains that the new CustomSound models can be utilized on their own or combined with other PSB speakers to create a customized home theater package.
