  • Breakthrough design for incredible studio-quality sound.

    The PSB Alpha P5 bookshelf speaker is a classic two-way design that can be placed on a
    stand, a shelf, a desk or a table and is equally well-suited for home theater or stereo listening. Available in choice of simulated Walnut or Black Ash, the P5 delivers outsized performance compared to its nearest competitors. Simply add a subwoofer (for even deeper bass) and/or other Alpha models for an awesome home theater experience.

    • ¾” 19mm Aluminum Dome tweeter with Neodymium magnet
    • Woofer with Polypropylene Cones and Rubber Surrounds
    • 5-Way, Gold-Plated Bing Posts.

    How to Improve on a Legend
    While the original intent has not changed, today’s Alpha designs benefit greatly from improved materials and production techniques, not to mention an additional 30 years of experience. These new Alpha models are ‘clean sheet” designs taking full advantage of the latest available technologies to create speakers that are smooth and dynamic with the ability to express the full range of musical sounds with nothing added and nothing taken away.

    Improved Drivers and Materials
    For the new Alpha P5, PSB developed a new 5 ¼” woofer employing dual layer voice coils with powerful magnets and polypropylene cones for detail, low distortion and power handling. A new ¾” (19mm) tweeter is ferrofluid cooled and features a Neodymium magnet for high sensitivity and power handling. A wave guide on the front of the tweeter helps match the response of the tweeter near the crossover point with the woofer for a seamless transition. Of note, the tweeter is placed below the woofer on some models which, in concert with the precisely engineered crossover network, provides a uniform sound field whether the listener is seated or standing.

    Unsurpassed Value
    In keeping with the Alpha philosophy, the P5 indeed represents remarkable value for its size and performance. In fact, though the new models easily outperform the originals, all of the new Alphas are slightly cheaper than the original models, when adjusted for inflation. Better performance for less money means outstanding value.
