Enormous sound, incredible value

Exceptional sound and uncompromising value are at the foundation of PSB’s Imagine speakers. The Imagine X2T Tower is no exception. Borrowing many design innovations from our award winning Imagine T2, the Imagine X2T is a powerful combination of premium performance and affordability. A true three-way speaker, the X2T is able to meet the needs of your high performance, multi-channel, or stereo setup with ease.

  • 200 watts input power
  • Titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid and neodymium magnet structure
  • 6½” Clay/ceramic reinforced injection moulded polypropylene cone woofers
  • 3-way sealed mid-range chamber dual port bass reflex
  • Two sets of gold-plated five-way binding posts can be bi-wired or bi-amped
  • Black ash vinyl finish

Add excitement and flair to your system setup

While the Imagine X2T is the largest speaker in the Imagine X range of speakers, the sleek, minimalist black cabinet design allows it to blend well into the home and your system setup. The yellow cones of its two 6½” (165mm) woofers emphasise its front baffle and provide some flair. These are also easily concealed using the provided grilles. The Imagine X2T is a welcome addition to any space at an exceptional price.

Features:

3-Way Speaker Design: The PSB Imagine X2T floor-standing speaker employs a three-way speaker design with a single 1" tweeter, one 5.25" midrange driver, and two 6.5" bass woofers for a realistic, true-to-nature sound for music and movie soundtracks.

  • 1" Tweeter: The PSB Imagine X2T features a 1" titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid cooled high-temperature voice coil and a neodymium magnet structure for extended high frequency response that remains distortion free even at extreme volume levels. A carefully engineered phase plug (the little plate in front of the dome) extends high frequency response and helps control the inevitable high frequency breakup mode while protecting the delicate dome from prying fingers.
  • 5.25" Midrange: The Imagine X2T utilises a separate 5.25" midrange driver in its own tuned enclosure for ideal dispersion and low distortion at high SPLs; this midrange driver is designed specifically for the Imagine X2T. Featuring an injection-moulded poly-filled carbon fibre cone, the 5.25" midrange driver features a novel shape and filleted surround to optimise the reproduction of voices.
  • Dual 6.5" Woofers: The PSB Imagine X2T houses two 6.5" proprietary injection-moulded clay/ceramic reinforced polypropylene cones with rubber surrounds that have been refined to improve stiffness, internal damping, and low mass.  Each 6.5" woofer has its own separate acoustic chamber tuned with a front-facing port to achieve incredible control and spatial, dynamic sound quality. Dividing and individually porting the chamber eliminates standing waves inside the X2T's tall, slim speaker cabinet. The placement of the woofers in multiple positions also reduces the first reflection phenomenon, minimising the negative effects of the primary "floor bounce" reflections, creating a much more accurate and tuneful bass performance. The result being low distortion bass response that speaks with powerful authority.

Bass Reflex Cabinet: The Imagine X2T floor-standing speaker utilises a bass reflex enclosure with two front-firing ports for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The cabinet's front baffle is made from 1-1/4" thick MDF and is extremely rigid to prevent unwanted distortion and vibration. The narrow cabinet design helps prevent diffraction effects that can create early acoustic reflections that colour the sound of voices and instruments. The 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 X2T 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 X2T 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 X2T 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 theatre 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 recognised 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.
