Description

Legendary PSB quality and performance
The CS850 features a 1″ (25mm) titanium dome tweeter with waveguide as well as an indexed adjustment to precisely aim the tweeter’s acoustic axis. Bringing up the low end is an 8″ (203mm) polypropylene cone woofer with cast basket. In addition, the woofer and tweeter levels can be adjusted as needed. Otherwise, this speaker retains all of the other features and benefits of its more affordable little brother, the CS810.
