PSB CW180R IN-Ceiling/In-Wall Speaker: Round shape, cost effective design




  • Platinum-derived 8-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter
  • Unique high-frequency, constant directivity SonicGuide™ gimbals to provide a focused, even response both on and off axis
  • SonicGuide™ can be tilted 30° left or right and the whole assembly turned through 90 degrees
  • Fully enclosed back box NCB available
  • Midrange and tweeter switches allow for response adjustments



Clever engineering and world-class industrial design combine in the PSB CW180R, a high performance coaxial in-ceiling/in-wall speaker. Coaxial speakers are very popular due to their small footprint, which makes them ideal for space-restricted in-ceiling and in-wall installations.



Special attention has been paid to the issue of aiming sonic energy toward the listener without forfeiting sonic integrity. The CW180R employs the same Platinum-derived 8-inch woofer and 1-inch dome tweeter as the CW383, re-engineered for a two-way layout.

The CW180R uses a unique high frequency, constant directivity SonicGuide™ that is gimbaled to angle in any direction. The SonicGuide™ is a proprietary, adjustable and aimable multipart flare attached to a 1-inch metal dome tweeter. Its contours and dimensions are designed such that it provides very even response with little variation both on and off axis. It also increases the directivity of the tweeter so that the listener hears transparent, naturally focused sound. Equally important, the SonicGuide™ reduces “backwards” tweeter energy that otherwise reflects from the woofer cone, thus eliminating a serious response error that plagues virtually every other “coax” speaker. The SonicGuide™ can be tilted 30 degrees left or right and the SonicGuide™ assembly is mounted on a click-indexing turning yoke that turns a full 180 degrees.


“Dog leg” style mounting clips insure quick and easy mounting. Two response tailoring switches provide a 3dB adjustment to midrange and tweeter levels. Whether mounted in the wall or in the ceiling the system’s response can be directed toward the listener for best possible sound. The result is very natural sound quality and great installation versatility.

Installation notes

- Optimum installation height (for in-wall installation) is between seated and standing ear level position.

- Distance between left and right speakers (CW180S/R) should approximately equal the distance from the listening area to the wall or ceiling.

- Make small exploratory hole and check for obstructions in wall cavity before cutting mounting hole.

- Mounting template provided.

- Lightly fill wall cavity with fiberglass 2 feet above and below system (CW180S).
- Use standard 4” fiberglass split to half thickness.

- Use 1” thick fiberglass behind system.

- Adjust electric screwdrivers to appropriate torque. Tighten 4 mounting screws firmly but do not over tighten!

- SonicGuide tweeter can be turned +- 45 degrees via the gimbal ring, then +- 30 degrees on its axis.

- Aim tweeter toward center of listening area via SonicGuide and gimbal ring.

- Switches give subtle balance adjustments for midrange and treble. Set to suit room acoustics and personal taste.

- See manual for more installation hints.
