I used anchor bolts--the speakers are not that heavy. The mount is very stable on the wall. In addition to the clamps that grip the side of the speaker, I was also able to use a bolt through a hole in the mount bottom plate into the mounting bracket on the bottom of the speaker. I believe it is an M6 bolt. This makes the connection between the mount and the speaker absolutely solid. The mount adjusts horizontally 180 degrees, and about 10 degrees in the vertical plane. The vertical adjustment allows me to aim the speaker directly at the MLP.

I also have Imagine Mini's as DSX Height and rear surround speakers. For the Mini's, I use the PSB mounts that are designed specifically for that speaker. Also highly recommended (but a bit pricey).

i dont think the b6's have mounts made for them since they are meant to be used as mains. I could be wrong though
post #3965 of 5490
Also i am going to mount the mains on the wall, and I am going to mount them upside down so the tweeter is closer to ear level. this sound like a good idea?

I think it is a bad idea, and is not the way the speaker is intended to be mounted.  The proper procedure, IMHO, is to have the speakers mounted in the proper orientation, and angled downwards  so that they point directly at the MLP.  This means that selecting a speaker mount that has vertical articulation is important.

 

You may want to consult with PSB technical support to get their opinion as well.

thanks for the reply. I will try to contact them smile.gif

EDIT: ok just talked with them, they said it would have no impact on performance, however it is not needed. a slight angle to the wall bracket will give the same reults (i.e the tweeter does not need to be exacty ear level)

so upright they go smile.gif

I am creating a home theater from scratch. It would be 50/50 2ch music / movies.
I am thinking of getting:
PSB Imagine T2 Tower for front L and R (300W)
PSB Imagine Center (150W)
PSB Imagine Surrounds (can do bipole or dipole or combination) (150W)
PSB Subseries 300 (12", 300W)



Nice selection. I've had the T2, C and S in bipole setup for over 2 months now and I love them.
I have added Imagine B's as wide speakers so they match the front soundstage.
As AustinJerry states, go with one of the Subs from those companies he mentions.
I went with 2 svs subs (sb13 ultras) and they are wonderful with music and have enough power for movies.
They augment the imagines in every way without overwhelming them.

Looking for opinions on the psb image surround speakers, I have aerials up front and cannot find aerials for rears that are reasonbly priced, so I am debating on getting the psb.s, thanks
post #3971 of 5490
May be I missed the info. Where online would be the best place to buy PSB speakers?
post #3972 of 5490

I don't know if they're the best place, but I've bought items from them before and have been very pleased.... www.crutchfield.com

+1.  I don't think you will find an authorized dealer who discounts from MSRP.

post #3974 of 5490
I called PSB, it seems like Audio Advisor has them around $50 less than the others. BTW the Imagine T2 speakers Would they be a nice pair of speakers for a DENON AVR-991? or Any suggestions I want them for music more than movies I have a HSU sub.
post #3975 of 5490
I would also give DMC electronics a try as well, I bought my PSBs online from them. Also I heard good things about Saturday Audio as well.
post #3976 of 5490
Bought an image c60 for next to nothing from a guy last week. Dwarfs my CLR1. Yikes.

post #3978 of 5490

Nice. What sub and av receiver r u running? I'm also a proud owner of the b6 and c5.
post #3984 of 5490
I am runnung a SVS pb12

denon 1612 (I am looking to upgrade this as it is now the weak link in my HT) possibly going to an onkyo 818. if i can sell my denon


how about you?
post #3985 of 5490
I'm running an onkyo nr609 and two Yamaha rsw 300's. Can't help it but I like these subs, as messy as the bass is and all. B6's at the rear, yamaha ns333 sides and yamaha ns777 towers. Looking at the nr818as an upgrade too and moving my 609 to the pc room.
post #3986 of 5490
not ot be OT but the 818 is at a great price of 679 at amazon. how does the onkyo sound driving the psb's?
post #3987 of 5490
Love the fortress u built too... All u need now is a plastic sheet from the ceiling down to stop any stray projectiles being thrown. Lol. Kids are cute but they destroy stuff... and usually go for the expensive stuff too.

Quite clean actually. Onkyo has always been good to me, not for everyone though, but it handles psb's at this price range nicely.
post #3989 of 5490
Unfortunately in Australia, u won't find an nr818 for under $1300aud. Everything is expensive here. My b6's set me back $700aud 6 months ago.
