I realize that comparisons are a bit frowned upon in these forums, but I'm trying to gather opinions on which set to use for my HT set up (as front speakers).


I currently have the PSB 400s installed, and really enjoy them. They are great for music in stereo mode. However, I also have a pair of Image 2Bs, one of which needs the woofer and tweeter replaced.


I'm curious as to opinions/experience of which may be the better (sounding) speaker. I must say I really do like the sound of PSBs.


Thanks for your thoughts.

The Image 2B speakers are probably worth repairing, if PSB will supply the components at a reasonable price.


Technology does improve over time, however, and my inclination would be to get a pair of new Image B6 speakers, which will very likely sound better due to advances in materials technology and the continuing research PSB does to improve quality.

I consider the 2B a step above the 400, I would try to repair it.

Thanks, this is the essence of my question. I am very happy with the 400s (I got them for a steal!), but it has been nagging at me whether to invest in the repair of the Image 2B. It seems it may be worthwhile pursuit as an upgrade.


Hopefully I can find the parts at a reasonable price!


Thanks again

Thanks, I'll try to take a look at the B6 line.
