Surprisingly Large Soundstage
The Alpha C1 center channel speaker from PSB offers superior midrange characteristics and low frequency response to handle complex on-screen action and dialog.
Using a pair of 5.25-inch midrange drivers and single .75-inch aluminum dome tweeter in a rear-ported cabinet for increased bass response, the Alpha C1 delivers a surprisingly large soundstage from such a compact enclosure. Customers and critics alike are amazed at the accuracy achieved by the Alpha C1, and are even more pleased with its value-based cost. Anchor the center of your theater sound with one of these, and enjoy the rewards.
"Highly Recommended" by Home Theater Magazine
"The redesign of these Alphas is a total success," reports Mark Fleischmann in his February 2007 review of a PSB Alpha home theater system for Home Theater magazine. "Here, then, is a great set of affordable speakers with a fine pedigree, designed by someone with a good ear…. Highly recommended."
"PSB's entry-level Alpha Studio Theater System is a winning compromise between relatively small size and exceptional sound quality at an affordable price," observes Steve Guttenberg in his June 2006 review for CNET.com.
Hand-built Drivers and Crossover
The Alpha C1 begins with a solid modular bass-reflex cabinet and loads it with PSB's newly designed, hand-built drivers and crossover network. The 5.25-inch injection molded metalized polypropylene cone woofer with damped rubber surround woofer paired with a single .75-inch ferrofluid-cooled tweeter creates a two-way design that is truly remarkable.
Designed 'From the Ground Up'
The design team at PSB worked tirelessly to build a speaker line from the ground up using technologies found in our higher-end offerings. The end result is an affordable speaker with a modern, yet simple look that has already received accolades from professional reviewers. From newly designed drivers to solid modular cabinets, the Alpha series is a tangible illustration of our commitment to excellence and value.
The Alpha C1 includes five-way gold-plated binding posts and clear bumpers for resonance control.
The C1 has a 62-21,000 Hz frequency response, 92 dB sensitivity, 10-120 watt power rating, and measures 17-7/8" wide, 7-1/16" high, and 9-1/2" deep.
