Excellent Value!

John, Crutchfield
28 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the speakers based on a recommendation from my Crutchfield representative, Zach. It was excellent advice! Paired with a Sony receiver, the speakers are a little tight just out of the box. So I would spend a few days running various types of music at various volumes while I was away at work. After about 30 to 40 hours of play, the sound is more rich and full.
  • Pros: excellent value and great for classical and most classic jazz music
  • Cons: as the low-end is not as deep without a sub woofer, I probably wouldn't recommend these for loud large space rock music.

Incredible Deal

DougM, Crutchfield
18 June 2014
  • Summary: At $179 these speakers are unbeatable. Tight, punchy bass which is quite deep and full for such a small box and woofer. I feel no need for a sub. Rich, clear open mids and crisp, airy highs with no hint of shrillness. They play amazingly loud without strain. They have a great soundstage and precise imaging, with a real three dimensional quality unmatched by any speaker i have ever owned at any price. I couldn't be happier. Way to go, Paul!
  • Pros: Amazing sound quality, terrific tonal balance and imaging. Superb build quality.
  • Cons: Not for headbangers who want to shake the walls and ruin their ears.

PSB B4's make a great computer speaker set up

Alock, Crutchfield
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased these as PSB B4's on sale as they're being discontinuing for the new Image X line-up. A complete steal for $179.99 I have them paired with a NAD D3020 Hybrid amp (which I love) & a Mordaunt-Short Aviano 7 (10" sub 175 watts) They are fine speakers. I'm about 25 hours in for break-in & they keep sounding better as times goes by. Excellent soundstage for such a small (4" driver) They are very neutral sounding & maybe a tad polite, but that's what I like.
  • Pros: Size vs. output! Insane quality speakers for short money! I purchased the Dark Cherry finish & even though it's a laminate, it's appearance is beautiful IMHO.
  • Cons: Could be a tad more efficient, but I'm splitting hairs.

excellent little speakers

khk, Crutchfield
5 February 2014
  • Summary: I was a bit uncertain about buying these. I thought they were pricy, compared to other similar speakers, and the vinyl finish wasn't particularly appealing to me. But, I got them anyway and I couldn't be happier. They sounded great right out of the box. I have them hooked up to a 15 year old 25 wpc yamaha shelf system in a small, 11 x 14, room and they fill it nicely. I don't feel the need for a subwoofer at all.
  • Pros: Great sound and no breaking period necessary, although, i do think that they did get better after a week of use.
  • Cons: Not a big fan of vinyl wood grain finish but they do look nice from distance.
