CustomSound Series: Designed inside the anechoic chamber at
Canada's National Research Council, this CustomSound series in-wall speaker is
engineered with PSB's unparallel driver technology. The CustomSound series C-SUR
incorporates advanced driver technology developed from PSB's Imagine Series of
bookshelf/floor-standing loudspeakers and adapts it for the unique requirements
of custom installation
In-Wall Surround Speakers: Because each woofer/tweeter
pair of the PSB CustomSound series C-SUR has its own
crossover and input, a single C-SUR speaker can be used for both the surround
and surround back channels (left or right) providing an ideal solution for a
7.1ch theater in smaller rooms. The CustomSound series C-SUR is also an
excellent "height channel" speaker because of its diffuse soundfield
characteristics that can spread sound over a wide area.
Dual Mode Configuration: The C-SUR in-ceiling speaker
uses two 5.25" clay/ceramic polypropylene cone
woofers and two 1" titanium, Ferrofluid cooled dome tweeters in
a unique dual-mode configuration.
- 1" Titanium Dome Tweeters: The two 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. The front baffle is designed to eliminate mid and
high frequency diffractions, maximizing three dimensional realism.
- 5.25" Clay/Ceramic Polypropylene Woofers: The two
clay/ceramic polypropylene cone woofers employ a rubber surround for smooth
response and an aluminum phase plug that acts as a heat sink for the voice
coil, reducing power compression.
Acoustic Enclosure: Unlike many other in-wall speakers whose
performance is compromised by the very wall into which they are installed, PSB
includes a superbly engineered enclosure that ensures the acoustic integrity of
the design in every installation. This truly rigid speaker baffle is essential
for resonance-free sound and makes it possible to get a predictable high quality
result in every installation. The computer-modeled enclosure has exactly the
right internal volume to match the drivers to deliver high sensitivity combined
with excellent bass extension and quality.
Spring-Post Terminals: The PSB CustomSound series in-ceiling
speaker is outfitted with two sets of 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). Each woofer and tweeter pair has
its own set spring-post terminals. Jumpers are pre-installed to use the C-SUR as
a single channel speaker. The jumpers can be removed to use each woofer/tweeter
pair as separate channels (for example - Surround & Surround Back).
Dog-Ear Mounting System: Specially developed heavy-duty
dog-ears (eight total) are secure and really quick to install. Using the tried
and true dog-ear mounting system makes for a familiar and trouble-free
installation. A cutout template is also included to help you install the in-wall
- Cutout Dimension: 13.1875" (w) x 13.1875" (h)
- Mounting Depth: 8" (including drywall)
- Mounting Height: 0.3125"
- Speaker Frame Dimension: 14.6875" (w) x 14.6875" (h)
- Grille Frame Dimension: 14.8125" (w) x
Paintable Magnetic Grille: The magnetically detachable
grille is powder coated in white and can be painted to match any décor. The
grille also includes a scrim that makes the grille visually opaque so the
drivers are not visible.
