5-Way Transitional Design:
The PSB Imagine T2 tower loudspeaker features an unique five-way "transitional" design for seamless frequency response and controlled directivity to eliminate
unwanted reflections. The 5-way tower speaker is equipped with three 5.25"
woofers, a dedicated 4" midrange driver, and a 1" dome tweeter. The Imagine T2
tower speaker offers a sound experience that is smooth, detailed, and real.
Custom Designed Woofers & Midrange:
The PSB Imagine T2 tower loudspeaker employ three 5.25" woofers and one 4"
midrange driver. The woofer and midrange cones are clay/ceramic filled polypropylene
and use rubber surrounds. The aluminum phase plug mechanically smoothes the response
and acts as a heat sink for the voice coil, reducing power compression.
Titanium Dome Tweeter: The 1" titanium, Ferrofluid
cooled dome tweeter's light yet rigid diaphragm and over hung voice coil,
combined with a computer optimized magnetic circuit produce an extended high
frequency response that remains distortion free even at extreme volume levels.
Crossover Network: The crossover is a 2-way acoustical fourth
order Linkwitz-Riley type with a 24 dB/octave slope. Tight tolerances were used
when choosing the crossover components; heavy multi-laminated iron cores are
used for large value inductors, high gauge wire air core inductors are used for
medium and small values, all the capacitors are low loss and film capacitors are
used for the midrange and treble frequencies. The tweeter, midrange driver, and
top woofer are crossed over at
1,800 Hz; the two bottom woofers play only 500 Hz and below.
Acoustically Inert Cabinet: The cabinet is an integral part of speaker design and
has a dramatic effect on the overall sound of a speaker. PSB's 7-layer laminated
construction results in a solid, acoustically inert enclosure. The side and top
panels are curved for added stiffness, with a high-gloss lacquer exterior. The
front baffle is designed to eliminate mid and high frequency diffractions,
maximizing three dimensional realism.
Triple Port Bass Reflex Design: The beautifully curved, hand-crafted
cabinet features PSB's Triple Port Bass Reflex design and subdivided discrete
the cabinet has three separate chambers, each with its own port on the rear panel.
There is one chamber and port for the tweeter, midrange, and top woofer; and
there is a separate chamber and port for each of the two bottom woofers. This Triple Port Bass Reflex design can produce deep bass down to 34Hz.
Port Cover: One port cover is included to seal one of the
three ports (if
necessary), thereby changing the bass tuning characteristics of the speaker to
correct the interaction with the room. If needed, additional port covers can be
obtained from PSB for a nominal fee.
Dual 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
Imagine T2 can be bi-wired or bi-amplified for even better sound quality. The
binding posts will accept spade connectors,
banana plugs (single or dual), pin connectors, and bare wire (up to 8 gauge).
Leveling Feet: The Imagine T2 includes two sets of leveling
feet; the rubber covered feet are used on a hard surface and add approximately
1/2" to the height of the speaker, the carpet spikes add approximately 1"
to the height.
