Overview

Our take on the PSB Image T6

All Image speakers have heavy internal bracing and 1-1/8" thick MDF cabinets to ensure impressively solid, acoustically inert enclosures. These cabinets have a traditional look, but with slightly curved tops and fronts to soften it. This family of speakers also features attractive vinyl finishes, allowing the Image speakers to easily integrate into just about any décor.

Excellent performance...and an exceptional value

Experience the kind of clean, balanced sound that has earned PSB speakers a sterling reputation among high-end audio circles. The Image T6 borrows from driver technologies developed for PSB's sophisticated Imagine family and 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.

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

The Image T6 features a 1" titanium dome tweeter that effortlessly dishes out smooth, uncolored highs. The tweeter sits just below the midrange in a unique arrangement that's characteristic of PSB's high-end Synchrony speakers. The long-excursion, high-output 5-1/4" midrange driver and dual 6-1/2" woofers use the same proprietary ceramic-filled polypropylene cones as the Imagine line. The stiff, lightweight cone material helps them deliver midrange that's clean and balanced, with excellent imaging. Each of the woofers is contained in its own ported internal enclosure, which allows for extended, defined bass response uncommon for a speaker of this size.

From the review Rocking the house with the PSB Image T6 speakers

"Ultimately, I think, the test of a great speaker rests on your enjoyment of the music. I had the pleasure of testing the T6s by listening to music and artists I've thoroughly enjoyed for years. Can a speaker make a difference? Can an old tune take on new life? The answer to both is a resounding 'yes.'"


— Marshall Chase, A/V Writer

The best sounding speaker in the tradition of old school big box warmth and bass. These things slam. I measured the response with an RTA- flat down to 35Hz. I do not need a subwoofer- it's up for sale. Great sounding bass, midrange and high end. Good detail. I am very happy.

Driver Technology

Cone Design: The midrange and woofer cones are clay/ceramic filled polypropylene to optimize the combination of stiffness, internal damping, and low mass. The magnetically neutral polycarbonate baskets contribute additional stiffness, and the bullet-shaped phase-plugs enhance linearity at higher frequencies.

Tweeter: The 1" titanium dome, Ferrofluid cooled tweeters use 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 3-way acoustical fourth order Linkwitz-Riley type with a 24 dB/octave slope. The crossover points are 500 Hz and 2,200 Hz.

Connections

Binding Posts: The dual binding post input terminals are located on the lower rear of the speaker cabinet. The two sets of binding posts are shorted together by a gold-plated jumper. With the jumper removed the Imagine T6 can be bi-wired or bi-amplified. The binding posts will accept spade connectors, single banana plugs, pin connectors, and bare wire up to 8 gauge.

Mounting Options

Leveling Feet: The Imagine T6 includes two sets of leveling feet; the rubber covered feet are used on a hard surface and add approximately 1/2" to the height of the speaker, the carpet spikes add approximately 1" to the height.

In general Klipsch speakers have a unique sound. People tend to either love them or hate them. I have been a big Klipsch fan for many years. That being said, I have a pair of Klipsch RF-83 and a pair of PSB T6. For both purchases, I considered the RF-82, but I really did not like the sound. I felt that the RF-82 did not have a full sound. The PSB T6 speakers sound amazing. If I had to rank the three speakrs I would say RF-83, T6, then RF-82. That being said, speaker sound is completely subjective. It is personal preference and also depends on so many other factors, like how you plan to use them, configuration, room size, etc. So for every person that likes one speaker, someone else will prefer the other. If you haven't listened to either speaker and can't do so, then get the T6. You will not be disappointed with the purchase. [ JASON  Mar 16, 2014 ]
have the rb62 and these PSB after break in sound much better all around. Heard the RF82 in a store and was not impressed. Have a rc62 for center wish I could trade for the psb center. [ Dennis  Mar 16, 2014 ]
tell larry I cannot comment on the klipsch since I have not heard them, but am very pleased with my purchase of the psb speakers. a ton of clean, smooth and neutral sound for not a lot of money. [ TERRY N  Mar 16, 2014 ]
