    This sub does a good job in a smaller room. It doesn’t like prolonged punishment. Worth the money. Works well in my gym.

    I knew what i was getting into after all of the research that I had done.. that being said, this Polk sub did not let me down.. i am totally impressed with its bass tone and power for the $130 spent.. i know there are better subs out there, but this Polk sub is the best option for someone not wanting to spend alot but want great bass for all applications.. basically, if you want anything better than this sub, then expect to look at $500+ subs.. its your only option.. for the $130 price point, its an unbelievable sub that hangs with some strong equipment . Its also advisable to determine your space provided.. if you need solid bass for a smaller to upper medium size room, and youre running around 100 to 150 watts on your home receiver unit, this is the perfect sub.. i would only recommend something bigger or better if you have a larger room and/ or runningg 300 plus watt system .

    Had a smaller space to fit a system into, and coupled with the Polk T-15s this sub does the job quite nicely. Tucked away under a table and 6" off the floor, the smooth, deep response of the PSW10 fills out the bottom end and allows the T-15s to sparkle with accurate clarity. I set the sub's low pass to it's highest setting to relieve the main speakers of the burden of bass reproduction as much as possible. It's running off an 80W Pyle mini amp. Now my kitchen REALLY rocks!

    I originally decided to buy this particular subwoofer because my dad bought one a few years ago for his surround sound system and i really liked how good it sounded and it looks pretty cool too. I'm currently using a hand me down stereo that is probably about 30 years old (older than me) and it was really struggling to play the low sounds in music and movies, after connecting it and taking just a few min. to adjust, it makes my old stereo sound balanced and new again. it definitely has no problem shaking the house but when adjusted properly it doesn't overpower the rest of the stereo. I also plan to wire it in once I upgrade to the new surround sound system that I'm working on building.

    Super awesome quality and a great value. I've owned a few of these. I had one in my living room and it easily rattle the windows. I have one in a cabinet in my outdoor bar and it rocks the neighborhood. And it's so cheap. I'm sure there are better ones out there for a lot more money but this is a great affordable option.

    Needed a sub for my living room. My AR sub just passed away and I needed something to fill the void. This not what really I wanted but with my limited amount to spend. I did a lot of researching and most reviews pointed to this one by Polk. I was not disappointed. Glad I did go with this one. My living room is not that big. If I had got what I originally wanted it would have bee en over kill.

    Speaker level input a great feature

    Posted .

    I've had this unit for about 2 months now. The PSW10 is a great Subwoofer for the price. It supports a high level or speaker level input connection from a receiver or amplifier not found in most Subwoofers. Using a traditional two channel amplifier w/o a Subwoofer output connection made this feature a must. All it requires is to connect the unit to the "B" speaker pair output on my receiver. This allowed me to supplement the low bass output produced from my vintage Polk RTA12B floor speakers that I found lacking from what I concluded is my current receiver's inability to drive these large speakers effectively at the low end of the audible frequency range. I set the Subwoofers variable volume at about 1/3 and the extra kick provided sounds smooth and seamless in working with the main speakers. The price was great, the hook-up easy, the shipping fast, the sound quality is very good, and the unit arrived in perfect working condition. Completely satisfied.

    Decent little sub on its own for a small to middle sized room. Recently moved and upgraded my listening area so picked up a second unit to help fill the space. Works like a charm again

    Have two in a 5.2 system and could not be happier, these are couppled with two elac towers center channel and two book shelf speakers, marantz 7011 (per amp duty) a emotiva 5 channel amp and these subs hold their own in my bed room set up, was even better catching them on sale, not boomy but nice and tight ( played with placement) and evenly distributed throu out the room, good with music and movies, thinking of setting up my work space with a 2.2 and pairing them with some def-tech speakers ( bp-8s ) i have in the garage gathering dust

    BYPASS THE CROSSOVER!

    Posted .

    I'm writing this because I own 2 of these. Ive read a lot of reviews (not just here at BB) where people are concerned about this sub having no LFE input. NOT a problem. All you need to do to use your RECEIVER to set crossover is CRANK the Hz ON THE SUB to the MAX. This bypasses the subs internal cross, allowing you to use the receiver to adjust cross settings. This isn't just my opinion, it's advice from a POLK "tech". No LFE is NOT a problem with this sub. I just thought I'd add this because it was a concern of mine when I was considering these, and maybe I helped someone with this info. (and saved you some research time!) Would I recommend this? Yes, but watch prices! (I got mine for much less)

    By far the best I’ve ever had.

    Posted .

    I have a 7.2 surround sound setup in my living room, and I have to say, this rumbles the floor, walls, and couches. It is a beast when it comes to music. I can pump the volume up and hear the bass roar. Movies are so much better with this sub. Pair it with a Sony STRDN1040 and you are set. I have in roof speakers and set combining a center channel, and two standing speakers. All made by Polk. It rocks the house!! Highly recommend!
