PSB Imagine X2T speakers are big and boldThe PSB Imagine X2T delivers big speaker sound, ideal for full throttle home theater thrills, without sacrificing refinement for music.
[MUSIC] If your wondering what you should spend your money on when it comes to building a home theater system, it's undoubtedly the speakers which are most important. Followed by a decent amp receiver to drive them. While some people would balk over paying one thousand dollars for speakers,. A pair of psp imagine st2s will likely outlast everything else in your system, including your TV. At $1299 a pair, these are definitely an investment, but you sure get a lot of speaker for your money. These are tall speakers. They're a bit over three feet. And they're attractive looking with a black ash wrap. And its distinctive three-way speaker arrangement consisting of a carbon fiber mid driver and a two bass drivers. Like most PSB speakers, the X2T uses a one inch titanium tweeter and this and a mid-range driver are kept in their own cabinet to separate them from the bass. While I had some reservations about the smaller X1Ts, I've no such problems with these. The X2T is a very talented performer, which is able to communicate dynamics, as well as, subtlety across a wide number of genres. They will also kick **** in a home cinema context getting as low down as 40 hertz. The only thing to be aware of is that they do deliver a lot of bass. And in a small room this could be overwhelming [INAUDIBLE] But if you do have the space, the X2Ts are excellent value for the money. This is Todd Pendlebreef for Cnet.com. [MUSIC]
