Wall Mount Speaker Solution

PSB Speakers today announced the immediate availability of their PWM Series, a new range of high-performance wall mount speaker solutions. Three models comprise the series: PWM3 ($2,499), PWM2 ($1,499) and PWM1 ($799). All can be utilized in horizontal or vertical positions for left, right, center or surround performance applications.

The slim profile of the PWM models allow them to hug the wall and maintain a minimal visual presence. Their clean and simple lines complement virtually any design aesthetic. Each of the PWM models is only 3 1/2” deep and 6 1/2” wide and measure 28”, 36” and 48” long for the PWM1, 2 and 3, respectively. A mounting bracket is included with each model and the Satin White or Satin Black finish with a soft magnetic, cloth grille complements any décor. While these models claim to provide a visceral home theater or music experience on their own, PSB’s in-wall subwoofer options with matching amplifier can be employed should additional bass performance be desired.

Dual layer voice coils with powerful magnets and carbon fiber cones for exceptional detail, low distortion and superior power handling. The new proprietary 1″ titanium dome tweeter is ferrofluid cooled and features a Neodymium magnet for high sensitivity and power handling. A wave guide on the front of the tweeter helps match the response of the tweeter near the crossover point with the woofer for a seamless transition. 

The entire PSB family of products are tonally balanced providing the flexibility to seamlessly mix and match between on-wall, in-room, in-ceiling and in-wall PSB models to suit the specific requirements of each application. 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.

“Following up on our long-time success of the PSB W1 on-wall, the PWM Series was conceived based on direct feedback we have received from the CI marketplace. Whether as part of a complete on wall system, a basic TV application or as an on-wall center channel solution for floor standing speakers; we believe the PWM models will exceed expectations in every way. These three PWM models have been created solely with the professional installer and their clients, in mind”.

Joe de Jesus, Lenbrook’s Product Manager for Custom Installation.
