Product Description

The XB is ideal for smaller rooms or in concert with a powered subwoofer for a compact full-range system. The perfect timbre match with the X1T and X2T towers also make the XB a great choice for surround channels in home cinema installations.

Imagine X
The Essentials.
True-to-nature sound is the design goal of all PSB Speakers. Imagine X brings a new level of realism to these affordable speakers applying the latest speaker materials and technology to PSB's most popular models. PSB's designers focused on simplicity—distilling sound to its purest essence—in order to bring listeners the experience that they really love.

Acoustic Research Makes the Difference
Through many years of research at the National Research Council Canada (NRC), home to one of the world's most advanced acoustical laboratories, our design team at PSB Speakers has learned not only what people love to hear, but also how they hear it in a room. Critical to the Imagine X 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, we were the first company to use the NRC for loudspeaker development and we remain the most active user of the facility today. Our experience with the NRC, how we interpret the data and implement it into the design of our Imagine X speakers, sets us apart from other speaker manufacturers. It has allowed us to focus on our primary goal—delivering real sound for real people.

"By conducting carefully controlled blind speaker tests, then measuring all the speakers to see what sonic characteristics appealed to the listeners in the tests, we were able to figure out what matters and what doesn't." - Paul Barton, Founder and Chief Designer

Real Sound for Real People
Four models, one objective: to reproduce the most accurate sound available for the money. Imagine X models are all carefully matched in timbre, giving you flexibility to combine any of the models to work together in many different rooms and system setups.
