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 W-LCR2
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
Three-Way Speaker Design: The W-LCR2 In-Wall speaker is a
true 3-way loudspeaker design employing two 5.25" woofers along with a 4"
midrange driver that seamlessly transitions to the 1" titanium dome tweeter. The
midrange and tweeter are on a rotatable sub-assembly to allow for uniform
dispersion whether the speaker is oriented vertically or horizontally (4 screws
will need to be removed to rotate the sub-assembly and then re-installed to
- Titanium Dome: Tweeter: The 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.
- Clay/Ceramic Polypropylene Midrange & Woofers: The 4"
midrange and two 5.25" woofers feature a two
clay/ceramic polypropylene cone and rubber surround for smooth
response, plus 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.
Dual Spring Posts: The dual spring-post terminals are located on the
back of the in-wall speaker enclosure. The two sets of binding posts are shorted
together by jumpers. With the jumpers removed the W-LCR2 can be bi-wired or
bi-amplified. The spring-post terminals will accept single banana plugs, pin
connectors, and bare wire up to 12 gauge.
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. The W-LCR2 can be installed vertically as
left or right speaker, as well as installed horizontally as a center speaker. A
cutout template is also included to help you install the in-wall speaker.
- Cutout Dimension: 10" (w) x 23.0625" (h)
- Mounting Depth: 4" (including drywall)
- Mounting Height: 0.31255"
- Speaker Frame Dimension: 11.4375" (w) x 24.4375" (h)
- Grille Frame Dimension: 11.5625" (w) x 24.6875" (h)
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.
Applications & Placement: PSB's CustomSound series W-LCR2 in-wall
loudspeaker can be used in a distributed audio, home theater, or stereo
application. In part to its wide dispersion characteristics and other aspects of
its superb sonic performance, mounting position in your room is very flexible.
