Our take on the PSB Alpha T1

by Dave Bar
PSB

Floor-standing speakers — still standing tall

Sure, floor-standing tower speakers buck the industry trend toward smaller, visually inconspicuous speakers, but they're hard to beat if great sound is your primary goal. Tower speakers produce powerful sound with excellent bass, making them a great choice for serious music lovers and for folks who want high-impact home theater.

Great home theater sound, outstanding value

The Alpha T1s may be PSB's entry-level floor-standing speakers, but you'll hear more than just "entry-level" sound. Like every PSB speaker, they're designed to ensure you experience all the thrilling special effects and emotionally engaging sounds of your movies and music. You'll be amazed by their clear, focused sound, which boasts brilliant highs and mids, as well as pronounced bass. So sit back, relax, and discover what home theater is all about.

Excellence by design

PSB's engineers began by designing each Alpha speaker from scratch to ensure that they'll deliver the same level of performance typically found on speakers twice their price. The Alpha T1s use a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter to deliver crisp, sparkling highs. The dual 5-1/4" woofers are made of metalized polypropylene, making them strong but lightweight. It means you'll hear excellent midrange detail and distinct bass without a trace of the listening fatigue that can happen with lesser speakers. The two woofers flank the tweeter in an array that increases the T1s' on- and off-axis response, so everyone on your couch can enjoy the same, great PSB sound.

Build a complete Alpha system

Create a complete, budget-friendly Alpha home theater system using a combination of Alpha T1s in the front of your room, the C1 center channel, and either the B1 bookshelf speakers or LR1 satellite speakers in the back of your room. And don't forget to add a PSB powered subwoofer (or two) for room-thumping bass.

Driver Technology

D'Appolito Array: The PSB Alpha Series T1 floor-standing speakers utilize a D'Appolito array design with dual 5.25" woofers paired with a 0.75" ferrofluid-cooled tweeter for increased on- and off-axis response while yielding wide dispersion.

Dual 5.25" Woofer: Each PSB Alpha Series T1 loudspeaker employs dual 5.25" injection molded metalized polypropylene woofers with rubber surrounds.

0.75" Tweeter: Each Alpha Series T1 tower speaker is equipped with a 0.75" aluminum dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter.

Waveguide: The T1's tweeters utilize an acoustical waveguide to deliver, more even high frequency response, no matter what part of the room you're in.

Crossover Network: The tweeter and woofers are crossed over at 3,300 Hz.

Magnetically Shielded: The T1 is magnetically shielded for safe placement adjacent to your television.

Enclosure Design

Wood Grain Vinyl Cabinet: The PSB Alpha Series T1 features a black wood grain vinyl cabinet that matches almost any decor.

Bass Reflex Design: The PSB T1 tower loudspeakers utilize a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.

Aluminum Grille: The speakers come with removable aluminum (metal-mesh) black grilles.

Connections

Dual 5-way Binding Posts: The dual binding post input terminals are located on the lower rear of the speaker cabinet. The two sets of binding posts are shorted together by a gold-plated jumper. With the jumper removed the PSB T1 tower speaker can be bi-wired or bi-amplified. The dual 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 12-gauge), pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.

Color-Coded: The speaker's binding posts are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Mounting Options

Leveling Feet: The PSB T1 tower speakers includes two sets of leveling feet - Rubber (for tile or hardwood) or Spiked (for carpet).

  • Rubber Feet: The adjustable rubber feet are used on a hard surface flooring and add approximately 0.375" to the height of the speaker.
  • Spiked Feet: The adjustable spiked feet are used on carpeted flooring and add approximately 0.75" to the height of the speaker.
