Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10in. Powered Subwoofer

Description

The PSW10 subwoofer fills in the bottom end of your home theater system so your main speakers only reproduce the mid and high frequencies, not perform bass duty, too. If you're looking for your first subwoofer, look no further than the PSW10. It's a great solution for completing your sound system and will take your viewing experience, movies, games and TV to a higher level of enjoyment.

PSW10

Don't make your front stage speakers do all the work. Instead, add a subwoofer to your system. You'll free up your front stage to be more dynamic and expansive by letting the subwoofer take over the low frequency effects, the thrills of movies and the deep bass of soundtracks. We design the intelligent amplifiers in our subwoofers to filter the low frequencies cleanly and smoothly, for better blending with the full audio spectrum being reproduced by your main speakers. Easily accessible, professional-grade connections give you multiple options for hooking up, so you can tweak your performance according to your own system needs. Add a subwoofer - or two. And turn your TV watching into a wild ride and your music listening into a live-on-stage experience.

Don't Go Subwooferless
CNet.com says, "The PSW10's deep-bass capabilities were impressive, but its definition and control...were really special." Big, affordable, and fun. Add deep bass excitement and extended dynamic thrills to your music or movie sound system with an easy to choose, easy to connect, and easy to use powered subwoofer.

Features

PSW10
  • PSW enclosures are designed and engineered for perfect volume, minutely tuned for distortion-free low frequencies, and internally braced and damped to eliminate internal standing waves and other performance-robbing resonances.
  • Quality materials translate into better power handling, less wasted energy, and bigger, deep bass.
  • This unique configuration uses a specially tuned and directed port to more efficiently produce maximum bass impact.
  • Combining just the right driver materials, speaker geometry and enclosure construction techniques has a synergistic effect that produces cleaner, clearer sound. This is our patented Dynamic Balance® process, and it helps our woofers perform effortlessly under the stress of high output source material.
  • PSW subwoofers outperform the competition with durable, resonance-free Dynamic Balance driver materials that stay stiff and move fast. You experience deep, musical low frequencies and thrilling effects with superior system blending.
  • Our state-of-the-art Klippel distortion analyzer optimizes the woofer's motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension for smooth, unimpeded movement over a broad spectrum of the lower frequencies to ensure the best, most efficient performance even at extreme listening levels.
  • Easily accessible, professional-grade line- and speaker-level inputs, and speaker level outputs, allow easy connection to any system.
  • Smart sensing circuitry knows when to turn itself on and off. Superior compression circuitry limits distortion at extreme volume levels. Intelligent amplifier also features adjustable low-pass crossover, phase switch and subwoofer volume controls to professionally control your bass output and the subwoofer's blending characteristics with your front stage speakers.
  • PSW Series subwoofers blend perfectly with systems composed of other Polk loudspeakers, especially TSi, RM and R/T/M Series speakers.
  • Unique design keeps your subwoofer stable and steady even at radical volume levels, for more efficient use of power. No more "escaped washing machine" syndrome.
  • All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry's most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV and salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bass for the BUCK

Pros: I bought this in conjunction with another purchase in 2009. I ended up purchasing it for around 50 dollars. I would pay full price for it again if something happened to it. The PSW10 has lasted over 4 years and still performs like it did new.

Cons: The front comes off easily and is a bit brittle with toddlers. My fault, not POLK's. I just wish I could find a cover replacement.

Other Thoughts: If you buy this for an average home theater (800 square ft living room) you will be very pleased with this. POLK really delivered on this model. That is why this model has been unchanged for so many years.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat subwoofer!

Pros: Insane bass!
Easy to setup.
Can pair with any speakers with multiple combinations.
Amazing gaming experience.
Movies make me feel like I am right there.

Cons: Power hog. 100w max and 26 minimum (estimated on site), this thing will quickly pump up your electric bill with any speaker combination set.

Other Thoughts: Paired this with a set of Bose Media Mate speakers that have been lying around since 04. I use a composite to 3.5mm cable going into the sub channel on my soundcard and then have the speakers going into the standard channel. The sound card does all the rest. It appears that you could convert a speaker set to plug into the woofer, but since I already had these cables, i took this route. My sound blaster card enables this woofer no matter what I have on. My Realtek only sees it with games and movies that have a 5.1 channel setup (no matter what settings I make in control panel or the Realtek audio program).
10" makes the placement tough for this, and placement must be strategic because the sound is so strong, the neighbors and housemates will surely hear it.
For the amount of power it requires, it is still insanely great for gaming and Movie nights. I just make sure to unplug it when not necessary.
Got it on sale during Christmas and do not regret it; however, after seeing my first electric bill, I am thinking that I should have just got a 65w 2.1 set for cheaper and let the Bose speakers collect dust again. If you have the budget, this thing cannot be beat, and even if you don't have the budget it is nice for a weekly gaming session or movie night. Just don't leave the thing on during web surfing or you'll be sorry.
This is more of a seller thing, but this was not double boxed and came with the picture on the side of it. Word from the wise, do not have it shipped to a home where it will sit on the front porch for hours.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat sounding speaker once you fix the port chuffing

Pros: Great price for a 10 inch sub

Cons: Port chuffing. but it can be fixed

Other Thoughts: For some reason polk added a grill to the end of the port which cause the horrific port chuffing. Remove the amp and it is held in by 2 screws and some glue but can be removed easily by hand. Once removed you can really push the sub with out the chuffing occurring.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for $99

Pros: Within about 5 minutes of turning this thing on for the first time at a pretty low level, the wife was complaining.

Very powerful, a bit more powerful than I was expecting, actually. I paid $99 for this, definitely worth it. Some of the comments were saying that this was fairly low powered, or that it couldn't fill a living room.

WHAT? Maybe if you're feeding in a garbage signal or something, but this thing can fill a large living room without a problem. Some people insist on literally only hearing the bass when playing music. If that's your goal, this *might* not be powerful enough for you, but, otherwise, this is great.

This thing shakes all the walls in my house. I see people were complaining about rattle. The only rattle I get is from the walls, desks, pictures, and just about everything else. If you think this subwoofer has rattle, you're probably just rattling other things.

Cons: It comes with a cover over the speaker part and looks very nice. After pulling it off twice, one of the tabs broke in the hole. This was a pain, but nothing some pliers and super-glue wouldn't fix.

Other Thoughts: I am using this for my office room, which is about 10" x 15", though it can be heard everywhere in the house, and even if you go outside.

I use for music and for games. Definitely enhances the experience for Battlefield or Elite Dangerous.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Very cheap price for Polk sound quality. Faithfully reproduces the lowest lows clean and tight. Good connectivity, line level and speaker level inputs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've owned it almost 2 years now and have had no issues with it. I have a pair of Polk Atrium 45's on my back patio that are about 6 years old and they a bit lacking on the bass end so I added this sub. What a difference it makes. Wonderfully clean sound at moderate listening levels. It's rated 50 watts rms with 100 watt peak so it's not going to blow your windows out or shake the house off it's foundation. For that I'd recommend the Polk PSW505. This PSW10 has not dissapointed for what I needed. Just be sure to feed it a good clean signal from a quality amp. It's going to reproduce what it it is fed, garbage in, garbage out.

5 out of 5 eggsPolk Audio 10Eggs!!!

Pros: I have this connect to my 60$ Vizio sound bar at the moment and it's just what I needed. For the lack of bass in my cheap sound bar I thought I would just buy a sub woofer to connect too it. Really great sound. Plan on buying the Zvox soundbase 555 and connecting the Polk too that.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat quality and sound for the price!

Pros: Great sound and easy setup. Rich base and packs more punch the subwoofers anywhere in it's price range. It's also quite large.

Cons: Make sure to get a splitter cable to ensure it goes into both ports. I have a receiver that uses a composite subwoofer cable (not left and right). You can tell the difference when you just plug into one of the L/R ports. It also turns the sub on faster vs just connecting into one port.
