About the PSB CS650

Pristine PSB sound with zero footprint

If you're looking for high-end sound reproduction without taking up any floor space, check out PSB's CS-650 in-ceiling speaker. It uses the same custom-designed 1” titanium dome tweeter as PSB's flagship Imagine T3 tower speaker — one of my favorite floor-standing speakers. The result is dynamic high-frequency performance without any footprint. A 6-1/2" carbon-filled woofer rounds out its sound with solid bass response.

Great for music or home theater effects

The CS650 delivers smooth, clear sound that's perfect for an in-ceiling music system. Or, use a pair for your home theater's surround or Dolby Atmos® overhead effects channels. The '650 features tone adjustment switches for both the woofer and the tweeter so you can dial in the ideal output levels for your room.

PSB CS650 in-ceiling speaker

The PSB CS650's high-quality voice coils and crossover network combine for clear, crisp sound.

Adaptable to your decor

I love how PSB has combined detailed musical performance with a sleek design. The '650 includes both square and round magnetic grilles. Choose the one that best fits your room — it's a breeze to attach.

The grilles are paintable, so you can match them to your room's decor. The zero-bezel edge means no bulk around the sides of the grille, making it virtually disappear into your ceiling.

DIY installation

PSB's rotating-cam design makes your in-ceiling installation straightforward. Once you have the CS650 in place, simply use a screwdriver to tighten each cam for a secure grip against the back of the ceiling.

If this is a do-it-yourself install, check out our guide to installing in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, along with our selection of in-wall speaker wire.

Product Research

Features

CustomSound Series: PSB's CustomSound series of high performance architectural loudspeakers offer superior stereo and home theatre sound in residential and commercial applications. Designed inside the anechoic chamber at Canada's National Research Council, the CustomSound series speakers are engineered with PSB's unparallel driver technology and expertise.

6.5" Carbon-Filled Polypropylene Woofer: Featuring PSB's trademark carbon-filled polypropylene 6.5" woofer with rubber surround, this speaker has a warm and balanced sound with plenty of power handling thanks to the high temperature voice coil.

Aimable 1" Titanium Dome Tweeter: The 1" titanium dome tweeter, another proprietary PSB driver, is concentrically mounted and features a carefully engineered Wave Guide and ball-joint pivot mount assembly. This allows the tweeter to go lower in frequency, creating a perfect blend with the woofer in the crossover region, and allows the tweeter to be aimed toward the listening position for enhanced musical imaging.

Tweeter & Woofer Level: Adjustment for the level of the tweeter and woofer allow you to "dial-in" the best blend of high and low frequency response for the speaker and its acoustic environment after installation to achieve the most musical balance for every room. The tweeter and woofer level switches are located on the front of the speaker and can be set to +3dB or 0dB.

Precision Crossover Network: The PSB CustomSound series in-ceiling loudspeaker utilizes a precision crossover network between the woofer and concentrically mounted tweeter for a smooth wide-band response.

Spring-Post Terminals: The PSB CustomSound series in-ceiling speaker is outfitted with spring-post terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, and banana-plugs (single only).

In-Ceiling Installation: The CustomSound series in-ceiling loudspeaker features a slim and discrete profile that practically disappears in the room thanks to its low-profile perforated grille and frameless design, making the speaker easy to install and conceal in all types of rooms. The in-ceiling speaker employs four high strength doglegs for easy installation and removal. In part to their wide dispersion characteristics and other aspects of their superb sonic performance, mounting position in your room is very flexible.

  • Cutout Size: 8.375"
  • Mounting Depth: 4.6875" (including drywall)
  • Mounting Height: 0.1875"
  • Speaker Frame Diameter: 9.25"
  • Grille Frame Dimensions: 9.3125" (w) x 9.3125" (h)

Paintable Steel Grille (Round & Square): The CustomSound series in-ceiling speaker comes with both round and square magnetic frameless grilles. The grilles use high-strength magnets for easy installation of the grilles to the speaker. The grille is constructed of painted steel and can be re-painted to match your ceiling following standard painting practices and techniques (spraying, not rolling or brushing, will yield best results).

Customer Q&A

2 questions already asked

Q
Do I need back cans for these speakers for better quality? What is the part number for the back cans and does Crutchfield sell them?
[ Srini  Jun 29, 2020 ]

Hi Srinivas. Using back boxes for the PSB CS650 or the CS850 is not required, but can be used. We do not offer the back cans for purchase, but you would need model BCN-600 for the CS650, and model number BCN-800 for the CS850.
[ Jess  Jul 13, 2020 ]  Staff
Q
These speakers say that backcans are available. Does that mean it comes bundled in the box or is it a separate purchase???
[ Martin  Feb 06, 2017 ]

Thanks for your question. I'm sorry, no there would be no backcan/enclosure included. That would be a separate purchase. If you have further questions you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
