2 out of 5 eggs blobby bass... 10/19/2013

This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single

Pros: It's cheap, it's made by a reputable company.. Makes a lot of boom. Great for explosion or other non-discriminatory low-end frequency reproduction.

Cons: lots of blobby and inaccurate bass. Below 30Hz it plays a lot of frequency multiples and not much of the fundamental frequency. This sub is really not good as an actual accurate sound reproduction device, it's great for movie explosions.

Other Thoughts: I'm perhaps spoiled, I've had many expensive subs. I thought that perhaps that sound reproduction technologies have evolved and a low-end sub would actually be a decent low frequency source. Nope. This sub doesn't play to 23Hz, and the worst offender is that it plays a lot of artifacts (the artifacts are still low frequency, so the sub is good for non-discriminate low end reproduction). I'm not that demanding of subs (or at least, not as demanding as I am of the main speakers), but as a musician I couldn't stand this sub for classical and jazz music. It'll do ok for hip-hop I guess, all you need is a bump, irregardless of frequency.

Pros: 1. Works.
2. Did I tell you it works, by the way?

Cons: 1. This thing has a rather loud spin up... SWOOSH-sh-sh..

Other Thoughts: This thing is loudish. I don't use the drive to play movies, so I haven't tested that. But installing OS from it, I immediately noticed how obnoxious the drive is (of course I had it out of the case, as well)... Maybe it's okay for continuous slow speed reads from DVD's (movie watching), maybe I'm just over-reacting...
