In response to many requests from the field, PSB strengthens its existing line up of architectural in-ceiling speakers with the introduction of four new models. In parallel with the existing CS610 and CS650, PSB is launching the 8” equivalents, the CS810 and CS850. In addition, PSB will be launching two new value-priced models. A new 6” model CS605, and 8” model CS805 will serve the demand for budget-sensitive projects and volume applications. Deliveries will commence mid-November.
CS850 ($499 each U.S. MSRP) is a premium two-way in-ceiling speaker system with 8” woofer, carbon-filled polypropylene cone with injection-moulded basket and high power distortion cancelling magnet technology. The CS850 offers higher sensitivity and lower distortion at high playback levels than comparable in-ceiling speakers. The 1” titanium dome tweeter features a neodymium magnet, ferrofluid cooling, and for this application a waveguide which is rotatable and aimable for pinpoint imaging. Tweeter and woofer level switches help tailor the frequency response to allow for flexibility in application.
CS810 ($349 each U.S. MSRP) is a two-way, 8” in-ceiling speaker system with a 1” titanium tweeter with waveguide technology. The tweeter is rotatable and aimable to focus the sound and has a high frequency switch to tweeter level to tailor its tweeter level to the environment or personal preference.
