PSB said they collaborated with Dolby Labs to achieve very precise frequency and directivity response that perfectly matches Dolby’s specifications. Custom-designed drivers were created for Imagine XA utilizing technology from PSB flagship models. The tweeters are titanium dome with ferrofluid cooling and a neodymium magnet structure. Woofers are clay/ceramic reinforced injection molded polypropylene cones. The advanced crossover design and distinctive wave-guide grille dial the Imagine XA precisely into the specified Dolby Atmos target function. Speaker terminals are 5-way gold plated binding posts.

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.
