Crafted to celebrate 50 years of PSB Speakers, it echoes the legendary Passif I and Passif II models. Immerse yourself in rich, true-to-nature sound with a touch of nostalgia and cutting-edge technology.
Our legacy of exceptional sound
PSB was built upon a foundation of performance and an unrelenting pursuit of excellence. The50 continues that legacy. Featuring a 1" titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid damping and neodymium magnet, it crafts a wide, deep soundstage with exceptional imaging. The 6.5" woofer and 8" passive radiator ensure precise bass reproduction. This marriage of advanced technologies with a vintage-looking speaker design results in a harmonious audio experience, delivering True to Nature sound.
Honouring a heritage. Embracing the future.
While the Passif 50 pays homage to its classic predecessors, it introduces modern refinements. Sold in mirror-imaged pairs, this configuration elevates imaging precision with both tweeters strategically positioned inside the soundstage. Its heavily braced enclosure is meticulously designed, with mitered joints for enhanced fit and finish, minimizing cabinet vibrations. Including dual five-way binding posts allows for versatile bi-wiring or bi-amping options, quickly adapting to your preferred audio setup.
Backed by research and experience
The Passif 50 is a testament to PSB's five decades of acoustic research and design excellence. It promises tonal fidelity, spatial realism, and effortless dynamics at all volumes, representing years of audio innovation. Made for music lovers, this classic stand-mount speaker faithfully reproduces music as intended by the creators, ensuring pure, uncolored sound.
A vintage aesthetic and timeless design
The Passif 50's vintage elegance shines with its open-grained walnut veneer enclosure and magnetically attached woven cloth grille. Its warm walnut veneer enclosures, along with anniversary edition touches like a front grille pull tab featuring PSB’s original logo and a rear-panel plaque commemorating “Passif 50 – 1972-2022,” reflect its nostalgic charm. Coupled with state-of-the-art technology, this retro design pays homage to the past, welcomes the future, and delivers the quality you expect from PSB.
Stunning speakersPosted onI bought these speakers earlier this year to pair nicely with a new NAD 3050LE. These are amazing speakers, delivering precisely the beautiful, refined sound I was looking for. I've paired them with a KEF 12b sub which integrates superbly with the help of the Dirac Live intrinsic to the NAD 3050LE. Overall, I can't recommend these speakers enough and I look forward to a lifetime of enjoyment from some very special kit.
