150-watt Subs for $449 or $549

PSB Speakers just announced two affordable subwoofers for high quality music and movie listening. The new Alpha S8 (8-inch) and S10 (10-inch) powered subs feature specialized long-throw drivers and efficient, bass-extending bass reflex enclosures. Both models employ digital signal processing (DSP) to allow PSB’s engineering team to maximize all aspects of performance to deliver the flattest frequency response and powerful bass extension. The built-in high efficiency digital amplifiers deliver 210W of dynamic power for unconstrained deep-bass peaks and musical accuracy.

The Alpha S8 and S10 subs are both bass reflex designs with a rear port housed in compact cabinets of black woodgrain. The S10 features a 10” woofer with polypropylene cone and rubber surround while the Alpha S8 sports an 8” woofer. Other than woofer size, the two new PSB subs have similar feature sets and utilize the same 150 Watt digital amplifier and variable crossover from 50-150Hz.

Like all PSB speakers, final voicing is performed by Founder and Chief Designer, Paul Barton, at Canada’s famed National Research Council. PSB’s research has discovered how listener preferences can be integrated into a wide range of speaker designs for many different applications, yet all featuring consistent sound quality that is natural and lifelike.    

“Alpha products enjoy a long and successful history for PSB and have developed a reputation for outsized performance at their given price points.” commented Paul Barton, founder and still Chief Engineer of PSB Speakers. “Earlier this year, we launched a new range of four Alpha models  which were the first ones in nearly twenty years. The new Alphas have been enthusiastically received with requests for subs to complement them. Thought they do that quite well, the S10 and S8 are equally well suited for use with any quality speaker for music or movies.”
