Overview

Our take on the PSB CS610

PSB's founder Paul Barton paid our headquarters a visit when we picked up the company's renowned speaker line. I came away from his training thinking "wow, these guys really love making speakers!" Barton's passion for excellence is reflected even in PSB's modestly priced models. The CS610 delivers smooth, clear sound that's ideal for an in-ceiling music system. Or, use a pair for your home theater's surround or Dolby Atmos® overhead effects channels.

Sweet overhead sound from an audio stalwart

PSB CS610 In-ceiling speaker

PSB's CS610's high-quality voice coils and crossover network combine for clear, crisp sound.

Adaptable to your decor

I love how PSB combines detailed musical performance with a sleek design. The '610 includes both square and round magnetic grilles. Choose the one that best fits your room — it's a breeze to attach.

The grilles are paintable, so you can match them to your room's decor. The zero-bezel edge means no bulk around the sides of the grille, making it virtually disappear into your ceiling.

DIY installation

PSB's rotating-cam design makes your in-ceiling installation straightforward. Once you have the CS610 in place, simply use a screwdriver to tighten each cam for a secure grip against the back of the ceiling.

Features

CustomSound Series: PSB's CustomSound series of high performance architectural loudspeakers offer superior stereo and home theatre sound in residential and commercial applications. Designed inside the anechoic chamber at Canada's National Research Council, the CustomSound series speakers are engineered with PSB's unparallel driver technology and expertise.

6.5" Carbon-Filled Polypropylene Woofer: Featuring PSB's trademark carbon-filled polypropylene 6.5" woofer with rubber surround, this speaker has a warm and balanced sound with plenty of power handling thanks to the high temperature voice coil.

Aimable 0.75" Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter, another proprietary PSB driver, is concentrically mounted and features a carefully engineered Wave Guide and ball-joint pivot mount assembly. This allows the tweeter to go lower in frequency, creating a perfect blend with the woofer in the crossover region, and allows the tweeter to be aimed toward the listening position for enhanced musical imaging.

Tweeter Level: Adjustment for the level of the tweeter allows you to "dial-in" the upper frequency response of the speaker and its acoustic environment after installation to achieve the most musical balance for every room. The tweeter level switch is found on the front of the speaker and can be set to +3dB or 0dB.

Precision Crossover Network: The PSB CustomSound series in-ceiling loudspeaker utilizes a precision crossover network between the woofer and concentrically mounted tweeter for a smooth wide-band response.

Spring-Post Terminals: The PSB CustomSound series in-ceiling speaker is outfitted with spring-post terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, and banana-plugs (single only).

In-Ceiling Installation: The CustomSound series in-ceiling loudspeaker features a slim and discrete profile that practically disappears in the room thanks to its low-profile perforated grille and frameless design, making the speaker easy to install and conceal in all types of rooms. The in-ceiling speaker employs four high strength doglegs for easy installation and removal. In part to their wide dispersion characteristics and other aspects of their superb sonic performance, mounting position in your room is very flexible.

  • Cutout Size: 8.375"
  • Mounting Depth: 4.6875" (including drywall)
  • Mounting Height: 0.1875"
  • Speaker Frame Diameter: 9.25"
  • Grille Frame Dimensions: 9.3125" (w) x 9.3125" (h)

Paintable Steel Grille (Round & Square): The CustomSound series in-ceiling speaker comes with both round and square magnetic frameless grilles. The grilles use high-strength magnets for easy installation of the grilles to the speaker. The grille is constructed of painted steel and can be re-painted to match your ceiling following standard painting practices and techniques (spraying, not rolling or brushing, will yield best results).

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Beautiful "pure" sound; whatever was recorded is what you will hear. I have PSB speakers in other applications (outdoor, computer) and like them really well. Easily driven by Sonos Connect Amps. [ GARY  Jun 04, 2018 ]
