PSB Alpha PS1 Desktop Speakers

PSB Alpha PS1

PSB Speakers introduced the Alpha PS1, a powered speaker designed for use with a computer, game console, or smartphone. The PS1 is the perfect sonic upgrade for any device with a headphone output and it also features a subwoofer output for additional flexibility. Its driver complement sports a 3.5” metalized polypropylene cone and oversized magnet structure paired with a ¾” aluminum tweeter. To get the most out of its performance drivers, the Alpha PS1 includes a highly efficient 2 x 20W power amplifier. The universal power supply works with any AC voltage making it convenient for world travelers.

Finished in gloss black, the curvaceous, organic form of the PS1 is functional as well as beautiful. Its compact dimensions (H 7 7/8” x W 4 1/2” x D 6 7/8”), allow maximum internal volume for impressive bass response yet small enough to be placed easily on a desktop.
