This graph shows the quasi-anechoic (employing close-miking of all woofers) frequency response of the W3 L/R section (purple trace), W3 center channel section (green trace), W1 surround (red trace), and SubSeries 200 subwoofer (blue trace). All passive loudspeakers were measured with grilles at a distance of 1 meter with a 2.83-volt input and scaled for display purposes.

The W3 L/R’s listening-window response (a five-point average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal and vertical responses) measures +2.05/–2.91 decibels from 200 hertz to 10 kilohertz. The –3-dB point is at 103 Hz, and the –6-dB point is at 71 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 6.25 ohms at 257 Hz and a phase angle of –43.50 degrees at 179 Hz.

The W3 center’s listening-window response measures +0.80/–2.31 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. An average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal responses measures +1.26/–1.42 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. The –3-dB point is at 126 Hz, and the –6-dB point is at 106 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 5.89 ohms at 284 Hz and a phase angle of –43.18 degrees at 179 Hz.

The W1’s listening-window response measures +1.37/–1.75 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. The –3-dB point is at 109 Hz, and the –6-dB point is at 91 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 6.33 ohms at 247 Hz and a phase angle of –39.86 degrees at 158 Hz.

The SubSeries 200’s close-miked response, normalized to the level at 80 Hz, indicates that the lower –3-dB point is at 28 Hz and the –6-dB point is at 25 Hz. The upper –3-dB point is at 131 Hz using the LFE input.—MJP

Your picture of the TV with the PSB W1 on the sides really intrigued me. Did you leave them like that when you tested them as the surrounds? Because I have to put my new TV a speakers in a corner. Also I could use some advise on how to install surround speakers in a diagonal room.
Thank AVRFAN
