Features

Features
Because it can be wireless, it's the easiest way to add deep bass excitement to any system, including a compact speaker array or a sleek SurroundBar installation.

The DSWPRO440wi goes anywhere you want the extra boost of realism that only solid low-frequency effects can provide.

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.

Polk intelligent amplifiers require less power to sound great, use power more efficiently and know when to stand down (especially at low volumes or in "Standby" mode); even at extreme listening levels, it's a wonder of digital high efficiency, bullet-proof reliability and minimal heat generation.

Lightweight, super-stiff composite polypropylene cones create greater efficiency and more cone control, while durable rubber surrounds provide superior damping and free range of motion.

5 out of 5 eggsvery pleased

Pros: 1) Easy to hook up (especially if you read your receiver's manual about what type of hook up it provides for a powered sub)

2) Looks great, solid construction

3) my living room is 18 ft by 15 ft with 8 ft ceilings, and it fills the room with however much bass you want (from barely there all the way up to window rattling multiple rooms away)

Cons: 1) I knew that it did not have a volume dial when I got it, and I thought that it would be one less thing to break; however, so far I have not found a way to determine what volume it is at and that has been a little frustrating.

Other Thoughts: So far I am very pleased with the sub, and choose this model due my smallish room not needing a bigger sub, and the wireless capabilities. I am currently using a wired connection (sub is less than 10 ft from my receiver, so I did not see the need for a $100 adapter), but love the flexibility if I ever move it to another room.

I have read a couple of reviews where people have had trouble getting this sub up to the boom level that they wanted. After hooking the sub up and running my receiver's calibration program, my sub was under performing and I was a little worried. I went into my receiver's calibrations and saw that it had my sub at -12 db! After I moved it to -3 db, and adjusted the crossover to 100 hertz (I have fairly large 3 - way bookshelf speakers), it sounds great.

The key to making this sub sound great, is your receiver's settings. My onkyo (tx-nr609) receiver has all kinds of settings for music, tv, and movies. I had to play around with them to see which worked best for what I was listening to. There is no one settings that works great for everything. That is perhaps the hardest thing to remember when you plug it in, turn it on, and just want it to work.

I am writing this review in my home office, which is about as far away from my sub as I can be, and still be in the house. I have pandora going with a modest volume level, and I can clearly hear/feel my sub all the way across the house. I don't mean that I can hear noise. I can clearly hear/feel each individual bet of the music, and it is great.

This is my first real sub, so take my review with a grain of salt. Those of you use to real subs, may be able to spot more shortcomings than I have.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound

Pros: Remote has a night mode that really works well for night time viewing. The four phase settings allow for fine tuning the sub to the main speakers. Its really well built and feels solid and looks good. Also the room optimizer does help tweak it for where you decide to put it in the room. It goes real low, lower than I thought an 8 in sub could go. The bass is nice and tight and clean. I had the included sub that came with the polk 6750 set up and thought it was great till I got this one. I found that it sounded so much better than my old sub, yet did not travel out of the room it is in as bad as the old one did.

Cons: The remote can take a little time to work. It took a few hours for it to start working,but once it does it works fine. My remote came with a row of buttons that did not work,but a quick email to Polk and they mailed a new one out to me. Also if you set it to auto and are listening to tv low at night with night mode and it auto turns off thinking it has no signal when it comes back on the night mode is turned off.

Other Thoughts: I really love this sub and I thought the one I had was good. The remote was a little bit of a pain but was easily fixed and it works like a charm. It really rocks music and movies. This sub is great if you want nice tight clean bass and be able to have a night mode that turns its volume down. Just know that with auto mode it can turn off and will reset the night mode. I found I like it with the switch to off and use the remote to turn it off and on and that way the night mode stays on till I turn it off.
