PSB's elegant-looking Imagine S speakers prove that great things do come in small packages. They're voiced to match the tower and bookshelf speakers in the Imagine line, and they provide enveloping surround-channel effects for immersive home theater. The Imagine line borrows technology developed for PSB's higher-end Synchrony series, so you get audiophile-quality performance in a high-value speaker. The Imagine S speakers each feature two aluminum baffles set at an angle to each other, each containing a 1" tweeter mounted below a 5-1/4" woofer. Their Tri-mode Surround design means you can wire them in three different configurations, depending on your setup:
- dipole: gives you diffuse sound, ideal when the speakers are placed to the sides of the listening area
- bipole: more direct sound, better for when the speakers are placed behind the listening area
- dual monopole: wire one set of drivers to a "surround" channel, and the other to a "rear" channel on your receiver lets you take advantage of 6.1- or 7.1-channel sound using only a single pair of speakers in the back of your room

Precise driver design for natural sound
The drivers are mounted flush with the smooth front baffles, for improved sound dispersion.
The Imagine Ss each feature two highly accurate 1" titanium dome tweeters that produce smooth, sparkling highs. The 5-1/4" woofers use a proprietary ceramic-filled polypropylene cone, which makes them very stiff and light. The resulting midrange is clean and balanced, with tight bass response. Highly efficient motor structures with unique compound magnets help reduce audible distortion. It all adds up to seamless sound as special effects move from side-to-side and overhead.
PSB's Imagine speakers feature acoustically inert enclosures, with seamless, unbroken surfaces that are beautiful to look at.
Solid, elegantly curved cabinets with a real-wood veneer finish
All Imagine speakers have smooth, 1-1/2" thick front baffles that blend almost seamlessly with the seven-layer laminated MDF side, top, and bottom panels. Plus, the heavy internal bracing ensures an impressively solid, acoustically inert enclosure. The top, side, and bottom panels are clad in real wood veneer that's hand selected for its beauty and quality.
