This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Hits most low music notes
Great for TV/movies
Gets pretty loud
Cons: I waited four years to buy a second one
Other Thoughts: Now that I have a second PSW505 in my living room, I wish I had purchased it sooner! Getting one was such a huge impact, I didn't think getting another one would make that much more of a difference, but it did.
Paired with Monitor 70's front and 60's rear.
This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Gets low enough for most music
Gets loud enough for my computer room
Cons: No LFE
Doesn't hit the lowest notes
Not a con, but this sub isn't small. You probably aren't buying it for its size though.
Other Thoughts: Bought for the price just to have it, and it finally made its home as a computer sub paired with Monitor 30's.
This is a great subwoofer for my garage or my desktop computer. I don't think I would use it as a living room subwoofer, as it's just not loud and low enough for me. That's probably why I have two PSW505's for that system.
This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor30 Series II Two-Way Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair
Pros: Great sound
5-way binding posts
Can be mounted on-wall with just drywall screws (use caution)
Other Thoughts: Remember these are bookshelf speakers. These are not low-range speakers, and if bass is what you want from these, then you'll want a subwoofer. These handle what most bookshelf speakers should be able to handle. If you're not going to use a sub, then get the Monitor 40's (which I also have).
Used as desktop computer speakers with a PSW10 subwoofer. Another set is used as part of a 7.2 setup, and a third set will probably be purchased.
