a musical entry-level sub at a good price
Posted by: MGNEO from: on
Despite low cost, and even lower-cost as I bought an open-box item, this little sub does no harm, and has no negative traits. I feels subs can be broken into two categories: Music OR Theater. This will NOT rumble your rafters during explosions in action movies, but, will add pleasant bass presence. It is better suited to fleshing out the low-end sounds of music when using main speakers with woofers less than 6" in diameter, in moderate or small rooms. Controls are logical and intuitive, with multiple hook-up options. Noise floor is dead quiet. Neutral-looking, can be placed discreetly in the room. Do not over-use your sub. Most people do. A little sub volume goes a long way. If you are listening to CNN and the newscaster's voice is booming and rumbling, turn the sub down, and/or lower the crossover frequency….both easily done on this sub. Your regular speakers should produce 95% of your normal audio. When a low frequency bass note occurs in a song, or in a movie or TV show, a properly set-up sub will suddenly make it's presence known, and you will smile. Like an alligator or shark gliding just below the surface of the water, you shouldn’t notice the sub until !BAM! it strikes. This sub does that nicely.

Perfect for a home theater
Posted by: Joseph from: on
I bought 2 tower Klipsch speakers and needed a sub and the guy who works in that area talked me into buying this over a Klipsch sub that cost about $200 more. When he compared them both, you couldn't tell which one was which. I'm very please with this sub, really happy watching action movies with it!!

Great value and has many options

This is a great value that provides solid sound for your system. It also has several options in the back of the subwoofer which allows for multiple types of connections.

Bang for the buck!
Posted by: Luvnewgear from: AZ on
My system consists of a Denon X4000 avr, B&W 683 S2 mains, B&W HTM61 S2 center channel, and 6.5" in ceiling rear speakers. I originally bought the matching $650 B&W ASW610 10" sealed subwoofer to fill in the low end, but was unsatisfied. The B&W subwoofer was very tight and clean for music, but lacked in overall output for movies. I didn't want to spend any more money on an additional matching B&W subwoofer, so I figured I'd now try 2 less expensive 10" ported subwoofers instead for increased output. After reading many great reviews for this $200 Polk Audio PSW108, I exchanged the B&W for 2 of them. They are not quite as tight and detailed as the B&W for music, however they make up for it with much more power and impact for movies. With 2 subs vs 1 I also get much more uniform bass response throughout my listening area. I am more than satisfied!

Nice speaker but noisy!
Posted by: Nbcokeman from: on
This speaker is a nice sounding speaker, BUT, if you like low rolling bass that shakes the house then you better be ready to hear the air escaping through the port! It hits solid but the second you push the threshold you hear every bit of air like your blowing into a fan! It's very annoying if your used to a clean hard hitting speaker without the wind noise. I bought this to replace a 12" powered JBL that I lost to lightning, and it doesn't compare at all!! I plan on returning it!

great speaker for a bugetary solution
Posted by: HiFive from: Mequon on
I am using this speaker as part of an entertainment system in the basement. It offers enough power to provide adequate sound at any volume setting. Great value for money.

Was looking to replace my JBL Sub-W; couldn't find same brand in stores. Instead, read the reviews on Polk; all were positive comments.
Decided to give Polk a shot; very happy with my purchase. Compliments my existing living room sound system nicely. Good bass, deep sounds.
