Overview

Our take on the PSB CS1000

PSB Canada knows as much about harsh weather as they do about high fidelity. The sturdy interior of the CS1000 cabinet features extensive bracing to put a damper on vibration. All materials are tough enough to withstand temperature and moisture extremes. Other protective measures include their UV resistant enclosure, rust-proof speaker terminals and rubber seals and gaskets. These speakers will provide years of music enjoyment whether you're out listening on your urban terrace, on the boat dock or just cooling off in your toddler's pool.

Great sound, right where you want it

The PSB CS1000 outdoor speakers are built to provide amazing sound quality in the most challenging environments. These weather-proof speakers deliver crisp highs with their 1" titanium dome tweeters. And the 6-1/2" woofer pumps out deep bass with a forward facing port and a plug you can remove to add bass punch. Each CS1000 has a bracket that lets you mount it horizontally or vertically. Once mounted, each speaker can be swiveled to direct the sound wherever you like.

Driver Technology

All-Weather Outdoor Speaker: The all-weather, outdoor PSB CS1000 loudspeaker is specially designed to bring PSB's renowned sonic performance to wide-open indoor or outdoor spaces.

Two-Way Speaker Design: The CS1000 outdoor speaker's two-way system includes a 6.5"woofer with a clay/ceramic injection-filled polypropylene cone and rubber surround that complements a 1" titanium dome tweeter to deliver full-range music reproduction.

  • 1" Tweeter: The CS1000 feature a single 1" titanium dome tweeter with a ferrofluid neodymium magnet.
  • 6.5" Woofer: The CS1000 features a 6.5" clay/ceramic filled injection-molded polypropylene woofer with a rubber surround.

Waveguide: The CS1000's tweeter utilizes an acoustical waveguide to deliver, more even high frequency response.

Crossover Network: The tweeter and woofer are crossed over at 2,200 Hz.

Enclosure Design

Weatherproof Design: The PSB CS1000 features a rugged, weatherproof design to bring high-end audio performance to any outdoor environment or commercial installation.

Durable Build: The CS1000's durable build features a thick-walled UV-resistant polypropylene cabinet, an aluminum grille, and rustproof terminals with a rubber cover for protection from the elements.

Bass Reflex Cabinet: The CS1000 utilizes a bass reflex cabinet with a front firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. A rubber phase plug is also provided for tighter, accurate bass reproduction.

Internal Ribbing: The CS1000's cabinet utilizes extensive internal enclosure ribbing for extra stiffness to prevent resonance.

Aluminum Grille: The speaker comes with a removable aluminum (metal-mesh) grille.

Paintable Finish: The PSB CS1000 outdoor speaker is available in a black or white finish. The enclosure and grille are both paintable.

Connections

Gold-Plated Binding Posts: The gold-plated  binding posts will accept bare wire (16-12-gauge), pin connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single only). The speaker terminals are spaced to far apart to use dual banana plugs.

Color-Coded: The speaker's binding posts are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Terminal cover: The CS1000 includes a rubber terminal protective cover to protect the speaker's gold-plated speaker terminals from the harsh elements of the outdoors.

Mounting Options

Applications: The PSB CS1000 is the ideal speaker for a range of residential and commercial environments, including decks and patios, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and fitness centers.

Dual-Rotational Bracket System: PSB engineers designed a fully adjustable, dual-rotational bracket system to allow for multiple mounting options, even in difficult places. Thanks to this highly flexible bracket, the CS1000 can be mounted vertically or horizontally and rotated up to 90 degrees on one axis and 170 degrees on the other axis.

4 questions already asked

Mine are retceiving signal from dedicated output and working well above my expectations [ Vesselin  May 14, 2015 ]
I have a pair with 3 other pairs of speakers all in one amp 100W and haven't had a problem - these are fantastic outdoor speakers [ DANIEL  May 14, 2015 ]
One pair will be enough unless you have more than 20 people in your pool at one time. I have one pair of speakers powered by an amp that is only 45w x 2, and they fill my back yard. Aprox 40' x 100'. They are great sounding outdoor full range speakers! [ JASON  Mar 15, 2016 ]
We used a pair in a space that is bigger than this - and it's pretty good. Seems, the base becomes lost the larger the area. These replaced a set of Bose outdoor speakers and they're definitely an improvement. There is only so much you can do without infuriating the neighbors! Waiting for more wireless options. [ Jon  Mar 15, 2016 ]
You shouldn't but it really depends on what you are driving them with and location. I am using a Niles 1230 with the speakers mounted against my house and they sound amazing. If I crank them everyone on my block can hear them. [ Jeffrey  Mar 15, 2016 ]
Absolutely. One pair is all you will need. Make sure you have a good amp - I recommend NAD. [ Dale  Mar 15, 2016 ]
Those speakers will be fine as long as you mount them 8-10' up on the house and point them both inward 40 degrees or so. [ CHRISTOPHER  Mar 15, 2016 ]
You will hear the sound across the length of the pool, but the sound will obviously be better at one end than the other. With 2 pairs it will be better and when you are in the middle of the pool you will enjoy music from both sides -similar to a concert. [ Peter  Mar 15, 2016 ]
It depends on how high you play the music.. If your cranking heavy metal or Rap you might want 4. Or if you have big crowd, I have 6 but they are spread out over big area and pool. The sound quality is very good though [ ALFRED  Mar 15, 2016 ]
These speakers sound good half a block away from the deck I have them mounted on! One pair should be more than enough. [ Bobby Dean  Mar 15, 2016 ]
These should work fine with the EOS. You will connect from the speaker output on the EOS to the speaker inputs on these. [ Jeff  Mar 09, 2015 ]  Staff
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best speakers for your system I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Krissy  Jan 27, 2014 ]  Staff
