  • Superb!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BIGREDDOG - October 22, 2018

    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!

  • great subwoofer for the price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PolkAudioFan - November 23, 2013

    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.

  • This is a very solid piece of gear...
    Reviewed by MrChiSox - October 10, 2015

    I own this subwoofer and use it for bass extension with my Audioengine A2+ desktop loudspeakers. I find it to most entertaining. NO it doesn't beat the BIG stereo but this setup sounds EXCELLENT and has me re-thinking the way I listen to music. I'm 54 years old and hate having to move great big heavy heavy amplifiers and speakers.

  • Value but sure not audiophile quality
    Reviewed by Bpaudio - January 13, 2013

    After giving this sub a good 3 week break in period I have say it sure lacks any semblance of clear articulated bass. With that said I would give it points for at least filling the room with boom. While the clarity isn't anything to brag about it does fill that 150hz to about 50hz frequency range in. Don't expect to play Japanese bass drum music and be awestruck. Rap sounds ok and so does heavy metal if you don't expect to hear the striker hitting the face of the drum. A good focal or velodyne may give you that but at a much higher price point. All in all an ok woofer god at keeping your theater budget on track. Audiophiles will be disappointed.

  • Good unit!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JFMc - August 31, 2019

    It's a sub - woofer. It sits in the corner and makes loud thumping noises. The Polk does that very well. Mine is tied to a small bookshelf system, but does a great job of filling in where the speakers (bose cubes) can't reach in terms of sound. As the cubes don't have much at all in terms of bass, the polk does a great job at making up for the absence. It has widely adjustable controls, so you can get a clean thump or soften things out so it's more of a heavy sustained bass. Nice unit, particularly for what I paid. No problems at all with it or with setting it up, except that my wife isn't sure what it does... She's learning, though!
