Overview

Our take on the PSB Image C5

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 that's softened by slightly curved panels. This family of speakers also features attractive vinyl finishes, allowing the Image speakers to easily integrate into just about any décor.

Clear dialogue and lifelike special effects

PSB's Image C5 center channel dishes out natural, dynamic sound that'll make it the star performer in your home theater speaker system. The Image line borrows driver technologies developed for PSB's sophisticated Imagine family, as well as their 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

K2 Power crossover network

The tweeter uses a powerful neodymium magnet for crystal-clear highs.

The Image C5 features a 1" titanium dome tweeter that effortlessly dishes out smooth, uncolored highs. Its two long-excursion, high-output 5-1/4" woofers use the same proprietary ceramic-filled polypropylene cone as the Imagine line. The stiff, lightweight material helps them deliver midrange that's clean and balanced, with surprisingly deep bass. It all adds up to distinct movie dialogue and impact-rich special effects that'll draw you into the on-screen action.

Driver Technology

Cone Design: The two woofer cones are clay/ceramic filled polypropylene to optimize the combination of stiffness, internal damping, and low mass. Each woofer's magnetically neutral polycarbonate basket contributes additional stiffness, and the bullet-shaped phase-plug enhances linearity at higher frequencies.

Tweeter: The 1" titanium dome, Ferrofluid cooled tweeter uses a neodymium magnet structure to help extend the frequency response at both ends for effortless, airy top octaves and smooth, uncolored response.

Crossover Network: The crossover is a 2-way acoustical fourth order Linkwitz-Riley type with a 24 dB/octave slope. The tweeter and woofers are crossed over at 1,800 Hz.

Connections

Binding Posts: The binding post input terminal will accept spade connectors, single banana plugs, pin connectors, and bare wire up to 8 gauge.
