About the PSB Image B4
Potent bookshelf speakers provide exceptional sound
When we heard these little gems demoed in our sizeable training room and without a subwoofer we were impressed by their wide soundstage, and by the overall sonic impact. Use a pair of B4s with your home office computer, send a pair off with the kids when they go to college, or mount four or more around your home theater room to get impressive surround sound. The Image line borrows from driver technologies developed for PSB's sophisticated Imagine family, as well as the top-tier Synchrony speakers, giving you high-end sound at a budget-friendly price. The Image line also features a slightly different cabinet design than its predecessors, showcasing clean lines that won't clutter up your listening room.
Advanced drivers for clean, well-balanced sound
The Image B4s each feature a 1" titanium dome tweeter that effortlessly dishes out smooth, uncolored highs. The long-excursion, high-output woofer uses the same proprietary ceramic-filled polypropylene cone as the Imagine line. The stiff, lightweight material helps it deliver midrange that's clean and balanced, with a sense of impact and immediacy. You'll also marvel at the detailed imaging, and wide soundstage produced by these compact speakers.
Sleek, thoughtful cabinet design
All Image speakers have heavy internal bracing and 1-1/8" thick MDF cabinets to ensure impressively solid, acoustically inert enclosures. The cabinets have a traditional look, but with slightly curved tops and fronts to soften it. This family of speakers also features attractive vinyl finishes, allowing the Image speakers to easily integrate into just about any décor.
