CustomSound Series: Designed inside the anechoic chamber at
Canada's National Research Council, this CustomSound series in-ceiling speaker
is engineered with PSB's unparallel driver technology. The CustomSound series C-LCR
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
Two-Way Speaker Design: The C-LCR in-ceiling speaker
features a two-way design employing two 5.25" clay/ceramic polypropylene woofers
with rubber surround along with a one 1" titanium ferro-fluid cooled dome
tweeter with wave-guide. The drivers are mounted on an angled baffle in a deep
box to allow proper dispersion required to create a nice three-dimensional sound
stage when recessed into the ceiling.
- 1" 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.
- Two 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-ceiling speakers
whose performance is compromised by the very ceiling 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-ceiling speaker enclosure. The two sets of binding
posts are shorted together by jumpers. With the jumpers removed the C-LCR 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 C-LCR can be installed as a left or right speaker, as well as
a center speaker. A cutout template is also included to help you install the
- Cutout Dimensions: 13.1875" (w) x 13.1875" (h)
- Mounting Depth: 8" (including drywall)

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 C-LCR
in-ceiling 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
