Canadian manufacturer PSB Speakers will show off the special PSB G-Design, with three distinctive models during CES 2007 in Las Vegas next week. The G-Design consists of the GT1 Tower, the GB1 Bookshelf and the GC1 Center Channel.
The GT1 Tower is a 2½-way design with dual 6.5-inch woofers and 1-inch tweeter. The GB1 is a two-way speaker with a single 6.5-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter. The GC1 is a dedicated center channel speaker using slightly smaller 5.25-inch woofers surrounding a 1-inch tweeter.
All PSB G-Design models use a new proprietary ferrofluid filled, aluminum dome tweeter with a neodynium magnet. This design promotes true-to-life “soundstaging.”
For use in home theater applications, all models have been video shielded. The woven fiberglass woofers are engineered for dynamic range, controlled expression, and exceptionally linear high-output reproduction. Moreover, each speaker is compared to the reference standard yielding consistently matched speakers.
All three models come in a high-gloss MDF cabinet with seamless corners and a hand-rubbed, furniture-grade finish. The company says that the shape contributes to a flatter response and richer sound.

- GC1: $849 each
- All models currently shipping
- Dual, 5-way gold-plated binding posts; bi-wireable and bi-ampable
