Our take on the PSB Alpha HT1

by Dave Bar
PSB

Why choose a pre-matched speaker system?

Looking for speakers that'll deliver thrilling, edge-of-your-seat surround sound? Choosing a pre-matched speaker system is one way to ensure seamless home theater performance. These systems are made up of speakers that share the same tonal characteristics — that means the sound will stay consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker around your room. Most pre-matched systems come with a subwoofer — a must-have for high-impact bass.

Superlative home theater performance

Here's a great deal on a high-performance home theater speaker system from PSB. The Alpha HT1 includes two pairs of their Alpha LR1 satellites for your front and rear channels, a matching Alpha CLR1 center channel speaker, plus PSB's SubSeries 1 powered subwoofer — all at a package price that saves you money. This compact six-speaker system makes it easy to enjoy hard-hitting home theater sound in just about any room.

PSB Alpha LR1 speakers

PSB Alpha LR1 satellite speakers

Pint-sized satellites with a big sound

The Alpha LR1s are the smallest speakers in PSB's lineup, yet they still manage to deliver dependably crisp, clear PSB sound. The speakers use a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter to deliver extended, sparkling highs. The 3-1/2" woofer is made of metalized polypropylene, making it strong but lightweight.

You'll enjoy excellent midrange detail and distinct bass without a trace of the listening fatigue that can happen with lesser speakers. Designed to be wall-mounted or placed on an entertainment stand, the LR1s are the perfect solution for rooms with various seating arrangements and odd sizing.

The center of attention

Don't be deceived by its small size, PSB's Alpha CLR1 dishes out powerful center channel sound that anchors the dialogue and special effects in your movies and TV shows to the action on your TV screen. You'll be pleasantly surprised when your fire up this little dynamo and experience the wide soundstage it produces. Designed to be wall-mounted or placed on an entertainment stand, it's 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter and dual 3-1/2" woofers are the perfect sonic match to the Alpha LR1 satellites.

A foundation of deep bass

The PSB SubSeries 1 boasts impressive bass performance, an absolute must for convincing home theater. This sub's 8" woofer pumps out quick, controlled, lifelike bass down to 36 Hz. It's backed by 110 watts of continuous power courtesy of the sub's built-in amplifier. Plus, the front-mounted controls make it simple to adjust the volume and crossover frequency, so you can get the best performance in your room.

Alpha LR1 Bookshelf Speakers

Two-Way Design: The PSB Alpha Series LR1 loudspeaker features a true two-way design that employs a single 3.5" mid-woofer paired with a single .75" ferrofluid-cooled tweeter. The result is an extremely tight sound with excellent imaging characteristics

  • 0.75" Tweeter: Each Alpha Series LR1 is equipped with a 0.75" aluminum dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter.

Note: The tweeters and woofers are crossed over at 3,000 Hz.

Wood Grain Vinyl Cabinet: The PSB Alpha Series LR1 features a wood grain vinyl cabinet that matches almost any decor. The Alpha Series LR1 utilizes an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure for tight, accurate midbass performance. The speakers come with removable aluminum (metal-mesh) black grilles.

5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 12-gauge), pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs. The speaker's binding posts are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Rubber Feet: The PSB LR1 loudspeakers include eight self-adhesive rubber feet to safely and securely place the speakers on floor-stands or other AV furniture.

Wall Mounting: Each PSB Alpha Series LR1speaker features a single keyhole slot and a 1/4"-20 threaded insert to wall-mount the speaker. In addition, non-skid rubber bumpers are attached in the corners of each speaker, so not to mar wall surfaces when the speakers are mounted.

  • Keyhole Slot: Each Alpha Series LR1 speaker has a single keyhole slot on the back panel to easily wall-mount the speakers.
  • 1/4"-20 Threaded Insert: Each LR1 loudspeaker also features a single 1/4"-20 threaded insert to wall-mount the speakers using optional articulating brackets (sold separately).

Alpha CLR1 Center Speaker

D'Appolito Speaker Array: The PSB Alpha Series CLR1 loudspeaker's D'Appolito speaker array employs a single .75" ferrofluid-cooled, aluminum dome tweeter flanked by a pair of 3.5" mid-woofers to create a wide soundstage with increased on and off axis performance.

  • Dual 3.5" Woofers: The PSB Alpha Series CLR1 speaker employs dual 3.5" injection molded metalized polypropylene woofers with rubber surrounds.
  • 0.75" Tweeter: The Alpha Series CLR1 is equipped with a 0.75" aluminum dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter.
  • Waveguide: The CLR1's tweeter utilizes an acoustical waveguide to deliver, more even high frequency response, no matter what part of the room you're in.
Note: The tweeter and woofer are crossed over at 3,000 Hz.

Wood Grain Vinyl Cabinet: The PSB Alpha Series CLR1 features a wood grain vinyl cabinet that matches almost any decor.  The Alpha Series CLR1  utilizes an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure for tight, accurate midbass performance. The speaker comes with a removable aluminum (metal-mesh) black grille.

5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 12-gauge), pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs. The speaker's binding posts are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

  • Rubber Feet: The PSB CLR1 includes four self-adhesive rubber feet to safely and securely place the speaker on a floor-stand or other AV furniture.
  • Wall Mounting: The PSB Alpha Series CLR1 provides dual keyhole slots and a 1/4"-20 threaded insert to wall-mount the speaker. In addition, four non-skid rubber bumpers are attached in the corners so the speaker won't mar wall surfaces when the speaker is mounted.

SubSeries 1 Powered Sub

8" Woofer/110W Amp: The PSB Speakers SubSeries 1 is a powered subwoofer, featuring a front-firing 8" polypropylene cone woofer with a rubber surround. The woofer is driven by a 110-watt RMS (140 watts dynamic, 280 watts peak), Class AB amplifier. The SubSeries 1 also has a front-firing 1" x 8" slot port.

Controls: Two rotary control knobs are provided on the front of the subwoofer. One controls the output level of the subwoofer, relative to the volume of the other speakers in the system. The other control adjusts the high-frequency roll-off of signals sent to the subwoofer. The control is continuously variable from 50 Hz to 150 Hz, and allows you to precisely match the subwoofer's bass production with the main left and right stereo speakers. The rear-panel phase switch allows for the adjustment of the phase of the subwoofer in relation to the speakers used in the system, either 0 or 180 degrees.

Inputs: The SubSeries 1 can be connected by the following methods:

  • Low Level Input: Two gold-plated RCA jacks are provided for connecting your receiver via the low-level input. You can use a single RCA cable to connect the Subwoofer or LFE (low frequency effects) Output from your receiver, preamplifier, or integrated amp. Either the left or right channel inputs can be used. Since most subwoofer/LFE outputs are filtered by most receivers/processors, the subwoofer's variable low-pass filter is usually not required and should be bypassed. This is done by placing the crossover switch to the External Crossover (LFE Input) position. If your receiver or integrated amplifier has preamp outputs, or if you are using a preamplifier without a designated subwoofer/LFE output, the preferred connection is to use a stereo RCA cable plugged into both left and right inputs. If the preamp outputs are unfiltered, the subwoofer's internal crossover should be used and the switch placed in the "Internal Crossover" position.
  • Speaker Level In: Two pairs of 5-way binding post terminals (for left and right channel) are provided for connecting the sub with speaker wire. The terminals will accept bare wire, spade lugs, pin connectors, and single or dual banana plugs. The plastic inserts must first be removed from the terminals before using banana plugs. Speaker wires can also be run from the subwoofer directly to the main speakers, eliminating the need to run wires from the receiver or amplifier to the main speakers.

Auto Power Mode: The subwoofer features a main power switch on the back panel. When switched to On, the subwoofer is initially in stand-by mode, awaiting the presence of an audio signal. When the signal is received, the subwoofer turns on automatically. When no signal is detected, the sub's amp will automatically turn off after approximately 15 minutes. In the Off position, the subwoofer will not power up. A green LED, located on the front panel between the control knobs, will glow when the subwoofer is active.
