5 out of 5 eggs Polk Audio PSW10 Subwoofer 02/12/2014

This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single

Pros:

I rate my tech knowledge high in the realm of home and car audio, to be specific. Thus, I thought to review this Polk Sub.
This is replacing a MUCH larger, 12", MTX Subwoofer that is also boxed in wood, ported, and the same 100 wattage. The only difference is it is downfiring, while you can adjust the polk where the sound faces you, as it sits on its feet. So, all-in-all, it's a fair comparison.
The Polk blows the MTX away. The bass is punchy, powerful for what it is, but much tighter. There isn't the sloppiness that the MTX creates as the bass pounds away - The Polk is tight and refined bass.
I have this setup as a part of a 7.1 all Polk Home Theater set-up and it holds it's own with the other Series II speakers. In fact, it adds a nice dimension when I'm just listening to music through my 2 front 70's, which are good speakers in and of themselves. But this makes them sound richer and fuller.
Power, well, that is a relatively subjective thing, as far as if these are "Loud" enough. I can only tell you that the bass stays clear and punchy, all the way to the point where the entire Polk set-up is hurting my ears and my wife is yelling to turn it down!
Thus, it will suit most people's needs for an excellent, entry level subwoofer that keeps the Polk promise of giving you a LOT for your money.

Cons:

There are no cons here. Even the black, wood veneer looks good. I'm not sure that it needed a silver accent, but that is merely nit-picking at looks. Overall, it looks almost as good as it sounds.

Other Thoughts:

I've been in the home audio field for many years. You can't do better than this for a basic, yet highly capable sub.
If we could do a blind "listen test," I guarantee you that this sub would sound better than many brands that cost 3X as much.
