PSB's Synchrony S speakers give you seamless surround effects along with flexible setup and placement options. Your eyes will appreciate this speaker's simple, sophisticated looks, and your ears will appreciate PSB's precise driver design. They 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

"The Synchrony S surround speakers were equally adept...I heard very nearly zero discontinuity from center to fronts to surrounds, which approaches the finest performance I've encountered."
Dan Kumin, Sound+Vision, November 2007
Great sound begins with quality driver materials
The titanium dome tweeters are carefully crafted to produce smooth, accurate highs free from distortion and grain. The woofer cones are made of fine-weave fiberglass, which creates a stiff, self-damping cone. You'll hear exceptionally clean mids with excellent detail and tonal accuracy. Extra-large voice coils and virtually distortion-free motor structures help preserve clarity and detail. Plus the rigid, cast aluminum baskets are magnetically inert for maximum efficiency.
The woofers use lightweight, rigid fine-weave fiberglass cones for exceptionally smooth response.
The tweeters use high-flux neodymium magnets to maintain clear, accurate highs, even during dynamic peaks like explosions or cymbal crashes.
Top-notch crossover ensures optimal sound dispersion
PSB's years of design experience and tireless testing at the National Research Council in Canada have led to a superior crossover design. The high-quality components are carefully picked to create the fourth-order crossovers that go into Synchrony speakers. Meticulous engineering ensures minimal driver overlap, with precisely chosen crossover points to maintain proper dispersion. The result is a smooth frequency response over a wide "sweet-spot."
A solid cabinet with a luxurious, real-wood veneer finish
Extruded aluminum front and back panels hold the curved, seven-layered side panels in place, creating an incredibly rigid, acoustically inert cabinet.
Heavy, rigid cabinets helps eliminate vibrations to to keep the sound pure. The double-walled aluminum side surfaces hold the curved wood panels in place. Each wood panel is constructed using seven layers of MDF, each one individually laminated to improve the panel's stiffness and absorb sonic energy that might otherwise color the sound. The top and side panels are clad in real wood veneer that's hand selected for its beauty and quality.
