I have a blown tweeter on one of my Synchrony Ones.

It is pretty obvious:



Has anyone ever had to replace a tweeter? Did you do it yourself, or did you need to return the speaker to a repair center? How much does a typical tweeter cost (or a return/repair)?

Edited to add: Does anyone know for sure whether the tweeters across some PSB lines are the same? For example, is the tweeter in my Imagine B the same as the Synchrony One tweeter? How about the tweeter in my Imagine Mini?

Quick sanity check - have you made sure that the input terminals are all tight? If the bridging clips are loose, or you're bi-amping / bi-wiring, that could explain the behavior.

Hoping this is it, and not a blown tweeter.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I have checked the binding posts to make sure the connections are tight. BTW, the top binding posts connect the midrange as well as the tweeter, so a loose connection would affect both drivers.

There is some good news, though. The rubber surround for the tweeter comes right off, revealing four screws that hold the tweeter in place. I removed the screws, and the tweeter slides right out. I anticipate that PSB support will be able to ship me a replacement tweeter for self-installation. Much better than shipping a tower speaker back to a repair center. I'm starting to feel better now...

Edited to add: I checked the tweeters on my Imagine B's, and they don't look to be the same.

Edited to add: Joy! Ordered replacement tweeter from PSB Parts, cost $70, arriving on Monday.

Glad to hear you have it under control. I was going to tell you that it's easy to remove the rubber ring around the tweeter and then simply unscrew it, but you're already there. What is the part number for the tweeter given on the back of it? The Imagine tweeters say PSB 1N 11NH on the sticker on the back of the heat sink. I'm not at home so I can't look inside my Synchrony right now.

For every new thing I learn, I forget two things I used to know.

The Synchrony tweeter part number is PSB SY 101.

Just to make sure it is the tweeter that is defective, and not the crossover electronics, I swapped tweeters in the two Synchrony towers. Confirmed--it's the tweeter. I'll be back up and running by Monday.

Actually, since a lot of what I am watching these days is satellite TV programming, which is heavy on center-channel content, I can hardly tell that the tweeter is dead. It could have stayed that way for a while, but I happened to run the speaker level-setting white noise and immediately could tell something was wrong.

Ah, yes, that's right - PSB SY 101. I couldn't remember. Thanks.

I have Imagine B's as surrounds with my Synchrony One's, and they match quite nicely.
Well, I was able to find a good deal on a pair of Synchrony surround speakers.

However, I have not found any Synchrony two centers available. How poorly do folks think an Imagine center would match up to my Synchrony two towers? I suppose I could just roll without a center until I can find a used Synchrony two center for sale.

Thanks for the advice

I am going to ask a question that may seem very stupid to many of you. I am new to the Home Theatre setup and bought my first recently from a PSB authorised dealer. It was a demo version. He gave me a very good dealing the Image T6 ($450 a pair). He had them for around 2 years and mostly stayed in his cabinets. He played the speakers and they seemed fine to my inexperienced, ignorant ears. I will be moving out of the country soon and was wondering if there was anyway to check if everything is fine.

He did say it comes with warranty and I saw someone post about their dead tweeter. I read about frequencies, decibels etc but still struggle to understand. Don't know much but would buying a SPL meter help?

Put your ears close in front of each woofer and tweeter. If sound comes out fine most likely everything is fine.

Is anyone living in the greater Toronto area, GTA, interested in purchasing BNIB Image T5 in black? I may have a line on a decent price and could pass some savings along. I see the msrp is $1,049 and they are on sale for $699, I can do better! pm me if interested.

For anybody in the Chicago area, or that wants to make a road trip: Paul Barton of PSB is going to do a demo of the new Imagine T3 line at Saturday Audio Exchange on the night of Thursday, December 4th.

Andy Zimmerman, the owner, told me yesterday when were on the phone about the new NAD seven-channel M27 (which I'm getting after demoing the M22, and working out an equipment trade-in as part of the deal). I think the NAD marketing rep is coming in as well or one of their engineering honchos, but I'll confirm.

Hello, I have a dilemma.

I bought a PSB Image T6 speakers 2 months ago for music listening at the moment.
Now I want to add center speakers, then sub, then surround if the budget permits. I have now the budget for the center speaker which the local dealer quoted me before. However, the dealer informed me just now that PSB Image is already phased out and can no longer serve my order. he's offering me the Imagine series but it is way expensive.

Im contemplating to buy a similar priced (to Image C5) speaker, he suggested I can go for Polk Audio Csi a4.
I also know that it is a bad idea to have mixed brands, especially for the front speakers.


Any suggestions, or comments from experience?

POLK! Jazzy, your local dealer should give himself an uppercut.

The Image C5 has simply been rebadged as the Imagine XC. It's almost identical and still the perfect match for the T6's.

Dont mix Polk with PSB.

Optimal results are obtained when using same brand / series. I noticed a big difference when I upgraded from 9c to Stratus Center to match my Golds. The 9C is great but it is nice that the levels and voice are now a perfect match. Watch Audiogon, US Audio Mart, and ebay for the speaker you want. My old 9C will probably be on US Audio Mart soon.

There are several active listings for PSB Image Center speakers on ebay right now. They are going cheap. I see several 8c's for ~$100

NAD M15 /NAD M25 / PSB STRATUS GOLD / PSB STRATUS 6C /DENON AVR 3300/CARVER TFM 45/35 - ANTHEM MCA3 / NAD T163
IMAGE DYNAMICS / INFINITY RS3 / POLK MONITOR 10/ALTEC 501 / INTEGRA 50.3/PARADIGM DSP 3400 / GOLDENEAR AON3 / HK AVI 200

Thanks! I was looking at ebay also, but shipping + tax here in PH will add up and may cost similar to the Imagine XC. so might as well go with Imagine XC.

What do you think about mixing other brands for SUB? I find PSB subwoofer expensive... will it matter much for movies? Polk sub? (sorry I keep on asking polk, bec it is cheaper)

There's no problem at all mixing brands for a sub. PSB subs are above average, but there's better value|performance equations to be found with specialist sub manufacturers.

Budget sub? This one is hard to toss: NXG Technology NX-BAS-500 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer($270). Here's a review from Home Theatre Shack. Get two of 'em!

The sub mixing issue is less critical. I would still steer clear of polk. They are just not what they used to be!!!! HSU and SVS have some good bargain subs. I would not go too cheap on a sub though. Too cheap equals regret and money wasted. Save up, be patient and get something worth having and keeping!!!

Hi there,

I'm gonna ask you, PSB owners a question. And I really need your help..

I want a 5.1 system and I'm in a place that had a very limited choices which are :

First choice is the PSB imagine X ( Imagine X2T floorstanders ,Imagine XB ,Imagine XC)

The second choice is the Monitor Audio Silver 6 (
Silver 6 floorstanders , Silver Centre , FX surrounds ).

the subwoofer will wait for a little bit because it need another budget.

I am very sorry if this is the wrong place, but I really need your help.

I never have heard the Monitor Audio speakers, so how could I have an opinion? Being quite pleased with PSB in general, I can certainly recommend them. I would try and find a dealer who will let you borrow the demo speakers for an in-home audition. That's what I did.

Did you get a chance to listen to both sets of speakers in the store? If so, which sounded better to you? Also, I recommend bringing some of your own demo material that you are really familiar with to see which speakers sound best to you.

I own PSB synchrony two speakers and love em, but I have heard really good comments on Monitor audio as well.

Also what is the store's return policy? If you dont like your choice after getting them home can you return them?

Sorry if this isn't giving you a this or that type answer, but with speakers, I have found with long experience that "different strokes for different folks" applies.

The good news is that I don't think you can make a "bad" choice here.

In my experience the Monitor Audio speakers are generally brighter and leaner than PSB.
If you want something slightly laid back and a bit easier to listen to, PSB.
If you want a more cold and analytical sound, Monitor.
I personally prefer PSB over Monitor.

It would appear that the Synchrony line is discontinued. Its no longer listed on the PSB website.

NAD M15 /NAD M25 / PSB STRATUS GOLD / PSB STRATUS 6C /DENON AVR 3300/CARVER TFM 45/35 - ANTHEM MCA3 / NAD T163
IMAGE DYNAMICS / INFINITY RS3 / POLK MONITOR 10/ALTEC 501 / INTEGRA 50.3/PARADIGM DSP 3400 / GOLDENEAR AON3 / HK AVI 200

If you want something slightly laid back and a bit easier to listen to, PSB.
If you want a more cold and analytical sound, Monitor

I personally prefer PSB over Monitor.
I'm generally afraid of, uh, generalizations, but the comments above mirror my experience as well. PSBs neutral or slightly warm, mellow. Monitor Audio more detailed and forward but can be slightly edgy and bright. Which you prefer is up to you.

I would add that I think the Monitor Audio Silver line looks much nicer than the PSB Imagine X line.

For every new thing I learn, I forget two things I used to know.

Yup for sure they are. I got real lucky finding a good deal on a synchrony two center locally on Craigslist, due to a heads up from a AVS'er here ( a very kind gesture!)

I'm not sure if this is the first review done on PSB ImagineXT lineup...
