True-to-Nature Sound: The PSB Imagine mini C center-channel loudspeaker
produces a large soundstage and impressive bass along with the true-to-nature sound
for which PSB is known. The PSB Imagine mini C has a wide frequency and dynamic range,
natural tonal balance, and precise spatial imaging needed to make both music and
movies lifelike and enjoyable.
Two-Way Design: The PSB Imagine mini C employs a two-way speaker
design. It houses a single 1" ferrofluid-cooled titanium dome tweeter with
a neodymium magnet and tw0 4" clay/ceramic filled polypropylene woofers
with rubber surround. The result is startlingly big and commanding sound with
fine detail and emotion.
- 1" Titanium Dome Tweeter: The 1"
titanium dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeters use a neodymium magnet
structure to help extend the frequency response at both ends for
effortless, airy top octaves and smooth, uncolored response.
- Dual 4" Clay/Ceramic Filled Polypropylene Woofers: Dual
4" woofer cones are clay/ceramic filled polypropylene to optimize the
combination of stiffness, internal damping, and low mass. The woofer's
magnetically neutral polycarbonate basket contributes additional stiffness,
and the bullet-shaped phase-plug enhances linearity at higher frequencies.
Crossover Network: PSB engineers designed the crossover frequency
very low relative to the woofer size in order to provide the same sound no matter
where the speaker is placed. The crossover is a 2-way acoustical fourth order
Linkwitz-Riley type with a 24 dB/octave slope. The tweeter and woofers are crossed
over at 2,200 Hz.
Small Cabinet: The PSB Imagine mini C center-channel loudspeaker is
the smallest center speaker of the imagine family. The cabinet measures just
(w) x 5.9375" (h) x 8" (d), and weighs only 9.8 lbs.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The PSB Imagine mini C center-channel
loudspeaker uses a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing port for higher
efficiency and deeper bass. There is an included port plug to decrease the
amount of bass output from the speaker cabinet.
Detachable Grille: The PSB Imagine mini C includes a detachable
Binding Posts: The binding post input terminals are located on
the back-panel of the speaker cabinet. The binding posts will accept spade connectors,
pin connectors, banana plugs (single/dual), and bare wire up to 8 gauge.
Color-Coded: The speaker's binding posts are color-coded
(red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Rubber Base: The PSB Imagine mini C features an integrated
rubber base to help secure the speaker in place to prevent slippage and vibration.
Placement: You should place the PSB Imagine mini C
loudspeaker directly above or below the center of your TV screen.
