Create Custom Sound Setups With PSB Speakers

PSB manufactures professional quality speakers prized for their rich harmonics and acoustical range. This world-renowned brand features single speakers and multiple configurations whose key features you can discover in the following questions and answers.

What are the available configurations and their components?

Basic configurations containing PSB speakers include single speakers or subwoofers. These give you the freedom of revamping an existing configuration or creating a new one. The other available configurations include:

  • 2.0 System: A basic two-channel (left and right) audio system paired with two stereo speakers
  • 2.1 System: Includes everything mentioned above and a subwoofer
  • 5.1 System: Consists of five stereo speakers and a subwoofer designed to deliver movie theater-quality sound or multi-channel music
What are passive, powered/active subwoofers, and their compatibility?

Passive subwoofers require an amplifier to supply power. The power supply can also be a receiver, the main console in a home theater or audio setup. Subwoofers require an enormous amount of power, so be sure the power supply potential of your amplifier or receiver matches the energy needs of the passive subwoofer you choose. A powered subwoofer contains its own built-in amplifier supplying power. Powered subwoofers are often interchangeably called active subwoofers. You can connect PSB speakers by wire to any entertainment system of your choice, providing you have adequate sources of power, the right wires and audio input jacks. Types of input jacks for PSB speakers on eBay include:

  • Banana Jack: Standard audio connector jack used for joining wires to equipment.
  • Raw Cable Jack: A wire with a jack at one end and open, uncut wire at the opposite end.
  • Stereo L/R RCA: Standard colored jacks (usually red, green, yellow, or white) shaped like large headphone jacks that you insert into inputs on a receiver or amplifier.
What shapes and applications do PSB speakers correspond to?

PSB speakers come in all shapes, sizes, and colors (black being most common). These speakers' availability hinges on the wide assortment of gently used and new-in-box (NIB) PSB speakers on eBay. Applications vary as well, but there is usually a type of speaker for any custom installation you seek. A few applications include:

  • Bookshelf
  • In-ceiling
  • In-wall
  • Floorstanding
  • Central channel
Can you use a central channel like a subwoofer?

It's better to purchase and use speakers for their intended purpose. Different PSB speakers have different construction and wiring that lets each type receive and process specific audio signals from your receiver or main theater console. Center channel PSB speakers specifically receive and transmit dialogue and non-harmonic noise. Stereo speakers primarily receive and process treble frequencies and medium-to-high tones. Subwoofers are designed to receive and transmit extremely deep sounds without which the harmonic output from your stereo lacks the warmth and depth associated with clarion bass.
