PSB speakers take the high ground
The CW60R in-ceiling speaker's rightful place is held aloft serving either as a complement to PSB tower and bookshelf speakers or with a combination of their fellows to fill your home with music or surround sound.
Clarity, fidelity and direction
The PSB pedigree shows through in the CW60R's realistic, true to life sound. Whether the instrument is a screaming guitar, a hushed voice, or even a booming cannon, its presence will be palpable. The 6-1/2" woofer pairs with a 3/4" tweeter to bring striking sound to spaces large and small. Plus, the tweeter pivots, so you can aim it toward your favorite listening position. These inconspicuous in-ceiling speakers are voice-matched for use with cabinet-built PSBs, and of course, they'll mesh with other PSB in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, too. Any way you choose you'll be delighted with the results. And a moisture-resistant design lets you use these speakers in damp areas like your laundry room or bath, as well as outdoors under eaves.
An optional in-wall bracket is recommended for installing the CW60R in a home with new construction.

PSB CW60R Reviews
Average Customer Review:
I just installed these speakers in the ceiling of my customers house and am very impressed with the sound quality. To check the sound quality, we played Beethoven's 5th and we were blown away with what was being reproduced by the speakers. As per the instructions, PSB recommends to box in the backside of the speakers with a volume of about 2.7 cubic feet with a blanket of fiberglass insulation covering it. I was only able to get the volume to 2.04 cubic feet but what a difference that made on the purity of the sound! Beethoven's 5th never sounded so good. I would definitely recommend these speakers.
Pros: Easy to install, just check for obstructions. Great sound. Well built.

Overview: The CW60R from PSB Speakers is a pair of high-performance ceiling-mount speakers. The CustomSound CW Series of in-wall/in-ceiling speakers incorporate the same speaker arrays as found in PSB's highly acclaimed Platinum-series speakers for true audiophile performance.
Drivers: The CW60R speakers employ a 6-1/2" fiberglass-textured polypropylene woofer, which has a higher cone mass and enhanced motor strength for higher power handling. The rubber surround damps resonance and provides exceptional durability. The low-resonance 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter delivers exceptional clarity in the high frequencies. The tweeter has a pivoting mount, allowing it to be aimed towards the listening area for best response.
Frames: The white ABS plastic frames extend approximately 3/4" beyond the grilles on the finished side. The frames also extend about 5/8" beyond the rough opening cutout. The speaker requires an 8" cutout in the ceiling or wall for mounting the speaker.
Grilles: The speakers are equipped with flush-mount aluminum grilles for a clean and unobtrusive look. The grilles have hundreds of precisely-sized perforations to make them acoustically transparent. The grilles and frames are paintable to match any decor. Self-adhesive "PSB Speakers" logo badges are also included.
Mounting Clamps: The CW60Rs have 4 toggle-style mounting clamps for installing the speakers in the wall or ceiling. When a Phillips-head screwdriver is first applied to the mounting screws, the clamps "toggle" out from a rest position (out of the way for easy insertion), turning 90 degrees and into a position to clamp firmly against the wall.
Pre-construction Bracket: For new construction, the optional CK60R pre-construction bracket (760CK60R, sold separately) is recommended. The bracket is designed to be a "hole-saver" to indicate where the speaker should be installed before the drywall goes up. In addition, an optional BBX-88 Performance Enclosure (available from the manufacturer) defines the optimal enclosure volume for the CustomSound series speakers, and mounts between two studs behind drywall.
Weather Resistant: The CW60R is weather resistant to enable installation in moist environments, such as bathrooms or indoor pool areas, or outdoors in porch ceilings or under eaves. The polypropylene cones with rubber surrounds, stainless steel fasteners, aluminum grilles and ABS plastic frames can withstand moisture, but the back of the speaker should be protected. The speakers should not be installed in an area that is totally exposed to the weather.
