The W1 speakers operate traditionally, while the W3 sports both left, right and center channels.
So you don't want to spend the floor room that's demanded by speakers but you don't want to spring for in-walls. PSB's new Imagine series of on-wall speakers is for you. With a depth of three inches, these speakers are made to sit flush with your similarly wall mounted TV.
The W1 is a more traditional speaker. It operates on a single channel, and can be used as a left, right, center or surround speaker. The W3 has left, right and center in one enclosure, making it more akin to a soundbar than an individual speaker.
"Properly designing a wall-hugging speaker like the Imagine W1 requires a thorough understanding of acoustics to get sound that is true-to-nature," says PSB founder Paul Barton. "PSB has perfected the tools required to get the optimal result for every loudspeaker application."
Both speakers begin selling this month, with the W1 coming in at $599 and the W3 running $1,199.
