High-performance sound from a slim floor-standing speaker

PSB's Imagine X1T tower delivers refined sound with the kind of spatial and dynamic accuracy that will make it a hit in any home theater or stereo music system. The Imagine X line borrows from driver technologies developed for PSB's top-tier Synchrony speakers, giving you high-end sound at a budget-friendly price. The Imagine X1T also features clean lines and a slim cabinet design that won't clutter up your listening room.

High-tech drivers produce clean, well-balanced sound

The Imagine X1T's 1" titanium dome tweeter effortlessly dishes out smooth, uncolored highs. The speaker's dual 5.25" woofers use an advanced clay/ceramic-filled polypropylene cone design. This stiff, lightweight material helps them deliver midrange that's clean and balanced, with surprisingly deep bass. It all adds up to realistic, detailed sound with a wide, deep soundstage that'll really draw you in.

Features

2.5-Way Speaker Design: The PSB Imagine X1T floor-standing speaker employs a two-and-a-half speaker design with a single 1" tweeter and two 5.25" woofers. This dual-woofer transitional two-and-a-half way design features identical 5.25" woofers that work in tandem at the lowest frequencies but crossover at different frequencies to integrate better with room acoustics and give the optimum dispersion and power response. Like all Imagine woofers, the cone materials have been carefully engineered for optimal control, allowing for a simpler, more cost effective crossover design. With the Imagine 1" pure titanium dome tweeter, the Imagine X1T delivers refined sound with tonal, spatial and dynamic accuracy

  • 1" Tweeter: The PSB Imagine X1T features a 1" titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid and a neodymium magnet structure for extended high frequency response that remains distortion free even at extreme volume levels.
  • 5.25" Woofers: The PSB Imagine X1T houses two 5.25" proprietary injection-molded clay/ceramic reinforced polypropylene cones with rubber surrounds that have been refined to improve stiffness, internal damping, and low mass. By optimizing the control and performance, the PSB engineering team was able to reduce the complexity of the crossover design.

Bass Reflex Cabinet: The Imagine X1T floor-standing speaker utilizes a bass reflex enclosure with a front-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The cabinet's front baffle is made from 32mm" thick MDF and is extremely rigid to prevent unwanted distortion and vibration. A black ash wood-grain finish complements the crisp, clean lines, and slim cabinet to integrate seamlessly with almost any decor.

Dual Binding Posts: The Imagine X1T floor-standing speaker features dual 5-way, gold-plated binding posts that can accept bare wire (up to 8AWG), spade-lugs, pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The two sets of binding posts are shorted together by a gold-plated jumper. With the jumper removed the Imagine X1T can be bi-wired or bi-amplified.

NRC (Nation Research Council): Through many years of research at the National Research Council (NRC) in Canada, home to one of the world's most advanced acoustical laboratories, PSB's design team has learned not only what people love to hear, but also how they hear it in a room. Critical to the Imagine X series design is this research into human perception of sound using double-blind listening tests. Double-blind testing removes any listener bias to give us the most accurate test result. It allows PSB to understand what is most important to listeners and allows us to create the ideal blend of performance and price for every application. In 1974, PSB was the first company to use the NRC for loudspeaker development and remains the most active user of the facility today. PSB's experience with the NRC, how they interpret the data and implement it into the design of the Imagine X series speakers, gives PSB a real advantage in speaker design.

Rubber & Spiked Feet: The PSB Imagine X1T floor-standing speaker comes with four rubber feet and four spiked feet. The rubber feet should be used on hardwood and tiles floors, while the spikes should be used on carpeted flooring. The feet thread into the bottom of the speaker and are adjustable to level the speaker up with your floors. The rubber feet add approximately 10mm to the height of the speaker, while the spiked feet add approximately 25mm to the height of the speaker.

Applications: All PSB's Imagine X series speakers are carefully matched in timbre, giving you flexibility to combine any of the models to work together in many different rooms and system setups; from a simple stereo application to a complex home theater system.

Canada is almost as far away from New Zealand as you can get, but it seems we are close on more than just stunning scenery and a large neighbour.
We also appear to share similar tastes in a great sounding loudspeakers. For over 30-years Canadian speakers have been popular addition to New Zealand homes. The Canadian sound differs from USA and UK markets, with their scientific approach being woven into the DNA of their products for the last 4 decades.
Perhaps inspired by nature, science or both, PSB are among the most awarded and reviewed Canadian loudspeaker companies.

THE “NATURAL AND OPEN” CANADIAN SOUND: INSPIRED BY NATURE

In 1974, Paul met Dr. Floyd Toole, a world renowned psychoacoustician at the NRC, who conducted numerous studies to understand how sounds were interpreted by the human sense of hearing at both the psychological and physiological levels. To Paul, who had devoted much of his childhood to become an accomplished violinist, it was a “Eureka” moment. He had long puzzled over how to consistently reproduce on a set of speakers the unique timbres of different violins exactly as they would sound to him when he played them.

What Paul immediately recognized upon listening to Dr. Toole describe his research was that his findings gave him the formula he needed to design speakers that to the human sense of hearing, would be perceived as organic sounding.

In other words, he could create speakers that wouldn’t fatigue a listener over long periods of listening because the listener would perceive those sounds in the same way they would the nature’s roaring thunder of Niagara Falls to all the subtleties of the soundscapes at the Algonquin Provincial Park.

In Dr. Toole, Paul found a lifelong friend and peer who would influence him and whom he influenced, all in the pursuit of a way to reproduce sounds that listeners would perceive as equivalent to that which was real, alive, and natural.
