Based on the award-winning LCR platform from PSB Speakers, the latest LCR line-up consists of the C-LCR, an angled sealed in-ceiling speaker, and the W-LCR, a two-way sealed in-wall speaker. Both models retain their impressive sonic performance, but receive an aesthetic upgrade to the frameless grille consistent with the rest of the CustomSound installed speaker line, and enhanced dog legs for quicker and easier installation.
Like all products from the brand, the C-LCR and the W-LCR feature exceptional sound quality, with excellent on- and off- axis response, flat down to 50 Hz in the case of the C-LCR and 62 Hz in the case of the W-LCR. Both models were designed and voiced by Paul Barton, renowned for his part in the seminal research studies that linked psychoacoustics to speaker design. Previous generations of the CustomSound LCR speakers received critical acclaim for their musicality, often compared to listening to high-end stand-mount speakers, and with a similar driver complement, crossover design, and baffle construction, the updated LCRs retain the sonic performance of their predecessors.
As part of the CustomSound series of architectural speaker products, the LCRs receive an update to their grilles with matching perforation patterns that run to the edge to create a seamless, modern look.
The already-high-quality backboxes and included templates made the previous generation of the LCR speakers a breeze to install. The dog legs are now fabricated from nylon, a less brittle material, preventing breakage if over-torqued.
