PSB Imagine C3 Centre Speaker is a true 3-way transitional design – unusually sophisticated for a centre channel – that uses the same driver technology as the Imagine T3. The C3 includes two of the 7" woofers, both active at lower frequencies and with different low pass filter frequencies to maintain proper power response, as well as the same titanium tweeter as the Imagine T3. The specially developed midrange driver is unique to the Imagine C3 and is responsible for the excellent speech articulation of this speaker. The enclosure is rear-ported and includes a tuning plug to adjust the bass output for different placement options.
High Resolution Tweeter
The Imagine C3 is using a hand-selected version of PSB's famous titanium dome tweeter. This 1" dome features a neodymium magnet, high-temperature voice coil and ferrofluid cooling, allowing it to keep pace with the high power handling of the rest of the speaker. Several years spent perfecting the production process has resulted in a tweeter with extremely smooth response and amazingly low distortion compared with other well-known tweeter designs. The integrated 'phase plug' is ingeniously designed to extend high-frequency response while also creating an 'air spring' that effectively dampens the metal dome's 'oil can' resonance. Although this resonance is beyond the audible range if not well suppressed it can affect the audible range. Excellent power handling allows PSB to ideally place the crossover point at 1,800Hz, which enhances the dispersion and integration with the midrange driver.
