Our take on the PSB Alpha T1 by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Great home theater sound, outstanding value
The Alpha T1s may be PSB's entry-level floor-standing speakers, but you'll hear more than just "entry-level" sound. Like every PSB speaker, they're designed to ensure you experience all the thrilling special effects and emotionally engaging sounds of your movies and music. You'll be amazed by their clear, focused sound, which boasts brilliant highs and mids, as well as pronounced bass. So sit back, relax, and discover what home theater is all about.
Excellence by design
PSB's engineers began by designing each Alpha speaker from scratch to ensure that they'll deliver the same level of performance typically found on speakers twice their price. The Alpha T1s use a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter to deliver crisp, sparkling highs. The dual 5-1/4" woofers are made of metalized polypropylene, making them strong but lightweight. It means you'll hear excellent midrange detail and distinct bass without a trace of the listening fatigue that can happen with lesser speakers. The two woofers flank the tweeter in an array that increases the T1s' on- and off-axis response, so everyone on your couch can enjoy the same, great PSB sound.
Build a complete Alpha system
Create a complete, budget-friendly Alpha home theater system using a combination of Alpha T1s in the front of your room, the C1 center channel, and either the B1 bookshelf speakers or LR1 satellite speakers in the back of your room. And don't forget to add a PSB powered subwoofer (or two) for room-thumping bass.
Our building is small and good, acoustically. Two Crutchfield speakers are perfect for the room!
