It could be better

Not a terrible sub for the price and would be okay for very light use. I've had it for a few months and like many other reviews mention, have been dealing with port noise on certain low end notes. For most use it's not too bad but if you try to watch a movie fairly loud then your going to hear the port noise and it'll drive you nuts. Tried the fix that is mentioned on several sites but that hardly makes a difference. Plan on switching it out for a better subwoofer soon.

  • from Cornwall, ON

its grate!!!

i have no port issues at all it has good beep bass not sure why others are having problems ,,,

  • from London, ON

Excellent Buy!

Purchased one last week and the output was excellent. I also own a Cerwin-Vega Subwoofer(purchased years ago) and the bass sound quality of the Polk is much more deep and smooth.

  • from Oshawa, ON

Happy with my Polk Sub

I am buying a second one of these to replace a 10” Nuance which failed and I wish I had not spent the same cost on a failed fix. Should have just got the Polk. Can’t be beaten at the price.

  • from Windsor, ON

Great budget subwoofer

This subwoofer has worked great for me so far. In comparison to what I had before(a cheaper sub that came with a home theater package) this sub produces deeper bass and can be turned up much louder. I have not had the noise issue that some others have reported. There is not a sound out of the sub when no audio is being played through it. If you're not looking to spend big money on your stereo system I'd highly recommend this sub.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Good value for the money

This sub is a part of 5.1 my setup in the living room. I paired it with old Panasonic HT in a box front and center speakers and a new Pioneer VSX-531 AVR. The idea is to have a cheap and a decent 5.1 HT system for watching cable TV, youtube and an occasional movie or a Netflix show. The sub performs very well in that role. I set the crossover to 200Hz because this sub covers frequencies up to 200Hz better than my main speakers. The room is quite big, but the sub fills it with warm bass to a pretty high level. It adds much needed lower frequencies to the poor sound from the main speakers. Do not expect that you can host a party or play loud bass rich music with this sub. It just does not have enough power for that. I have researched the subs when I configured my main 5.1 setup in the basement. There I have a Klipsch R115SW which is by far superior to PSW10, but it costs about 8 times more. I recommend PSW10 for an entry level 5.1 setup. It will perform better than a sub from a "theater in a box" passive subs, better than a 2.1 computer THX certified subs and very likely better than most soundbar subs. To get a better sub, you will have to pay at least 2-3 times more.

  • from Innisfil, ON

Quite Impressed

I bought this to replace an older PSW111 that failed on me. This sub is much better, and handles the deeper bass with the 10". Overall its perfect, especially at this price.

  • from Saint John NB

Very Satisfied

Bought this today and hooked it up to my Yamaha R-s300 receiver which has subwoofer out. I am watching / listening to the Hip 's concert from 2016 recorded live by the CBC (I recorded it) and this little sub is adding the "guts" that was room missing. I only wish the Yamaha was more than 55 watts. Can't think of a single bad thing to say about this sub. It really has taken my audio setup to closer to a true rock concert environment. When I purchased I opted for a more expensive RCA cable. I am glad I did, the back of the sub is pretty warm so there must be lots of juice being pumped from my amp through my cable. Maybe not, but for the sake of 10 bucks, I'm happy with my setup. An audiophile probably would find fault with this sub and my setup as well, but for me, it works. The 300 square foot room is rocking!

Do not buy this!! Spend money on something better!

  • from Hanmer, ON


Bought this subwoofer a day befor christmas 2016, i love it ever since, i have a old 1997 sony reciever and speakers, i use the speaker level input and it sounds amazing! But how do you get rid of the port noise??? Unscrew the metal amp in the back and you will see the end of the port,Theres a mettal thing that you can unscrew, its there to stop stuff from getting sucked in. Take that out and you will no longer have port noise, i get 0 port noise, and it makes the subwoofer a little more louder and deeper.

  • from Montreal, QC

Dont buy this piece of s#*t

Returned it.... Makes way more port noise than you think even when removing the metal plate on the back of the port... Keep it at a low volume if you dont want that lol. My towers perform better without it anyways, just by using the equalizer I have.

  • from Châteauguay, QC

It's okay

It's an okay subwoofer for smaller rooms, believe what the reviews say. I don't think it's worth the full price. It has plenty of port noise even if you remove the metal plate from the back of the port and trust me, it cannot hit low ends well with the chuffling noise

  • from Hanmer, ON

Really amazing!!

Wow i bought this today and as an Audiophile i would say it sounds great for it size, i looked at it on the web page here the went to best buy and bought it, i expected it to be bigger but for it size super super deep on bass, it shakes the house!! but there is some port oise but its not that noticeable :) It is a loud subwoofer as well.

  • from Campbell River, BC

i am liking the sub

  • from Toronto, ON

  • from canada

great sub

I bought this subwoofer to replace my crap 5 inch subwoofer.So far I'm very happy with it, it produces nice clear deep bass with little wires and it's quite easy to hook up.

  • from Barrie ont

Movie lover

I got 4 of these subs for my theatre room and let me tell you it will shake everything zero distortion and amazing deep base , amazing deal and looks great Good job Polk ??

  • from Pickering, ON

Polk subwoofer

Paired it up with mirage bookshelf speakers I bought years ago to pickup bass response to the vinyl I have now started playing again, very pleased with the tightness of the woofer and having the volume control. Well worth the money for 300 to 4or 500 square ft. Rooms

  • from London, ON

consider this at least

in the middle of the night, following the day i made up my mind to buy two of these subs i thought should offer the following: I bought a sub that looked identical to this, with the same model number, 8 years ago, from a small media wiring company beside the place where i worked at the time for 100 dollars after i went in to ask for an opinion about something. This was a standby product that they stocked and i left feeling like i had settled on something mediocre. 8 years later its still going after being lightly used for at least 3 hours, nearly every day since. It has also had my back as a music playback work horse too. After looking hard for an upgraded sub for a second system im putting together it finally dawned on me that buying two of these sexy little polks will check every box i have and cost me less than any other option available to me by far.

  • from Burlington, ON

Great Sub for the price

Great Subwoofer for the price. I had purchased one for me and one for my father in law. I have another polk audio subwoofer and I find they pound well. A little on the big side but if you have the space nothing to worry about. Can't beat the price. I recommend it as a starter sub or to add to an existing system.

  • from Quesnel, BC

Great Value

I bought this subwoofer to replace a Klipsch sub that died -in fact I bought this Polk model for less money than Klipsch wanted for the replacement parts to fix theirs. That said, I am quite happy with this Polk sub and would certainly recommend it to others based on both sound quality and price. Just remember to experiment a bit by trying it out in different locations in the room -it can make a huge difference.

  • from Vanncouver, BC

Perfect value for money!!

I used this a little over a year now, and all I can say is there's nothing out there you can buy with this performance to price ratio. I use this with my Polk AudioTSi 500 towers and it is a perfect match. Certainly this is not the loudest subwoofer out there, its more suitable for small to medium rooms. This delivers amazing low end notes with perfect accuracy.

  • from Calgary, Alberta

Happy Customer

As expected, did not disappoint. Once I setup the settings correctly, I found just the right amount of bass.

  • from Québec, QC

Nice unit, poor sound quality.

Very nice design, lots of connectivity, unfortunately, the amp can't control the driver, and the bass-reflex makes some horrible port noise.

  • from Toronto, ON

Two Thumbs Up!!

You will never regret buying this if you needed something to complement the low frequency of your sound system. It has a good crossover control and volume to tweak the output. The enclosure is bigger than I thought!

  • from Brossard, QC

Great value

Great way to complete your home theater system and you can't beat the price.

  • from Van BC

Great sub

  • from Richmond Hill, ON


Great for your average home theatre system and great bang for your buck

  • from Uxbridge, ON

Great product...

I am extremely happy with the sub woofer, well worth the price and adds another dimension to our movie experience. Requires a sub in cable otherwise complete.

  • from ajax ont.


I bought the polk sub on sale because what I have read about it in the reviews just have to say it is a awsome unit well worth the money can't go wrong with this one

  • from montreal Qc

  • from Stoney Creek, ON

Polk Audio

I purchased the Polk Audio 10 inch PSW 10 powered subwoofer to replace a cheaper brand and wow what a difference the sound was great the bass sound well lets just say I had to turn it down you will not be disappointed.

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Very Surprised

I was boxing day shopping at Best Buy and I came across a wall of boxes labelled polk audio subwoofer with a very low sale price on it and I had to take a look. I was in the hunt for a subwoofer anyway to compliment my Klipsch speakers so i took a closer look. After checking reviews on my smart phone at the store I took a gamble and bought the Polk Audio subwoofer and hooked it up to my system. All I can say is WOW. From my experience with this subwoofer so far I just love the bass that comes from them. Perfect crisp bass, not underpowering at all. I put these right up there with some of the higher priced subwoofers out there. For the low price that they are on boxing day, or when they go on sale is totally worth every penny spent for this amazing subwoofer. I've had mine now for a year and I love them. I'm actually thinking about buying another one for a backup because of how low the price is. You can't go wrong at all with this purchase.

  • from Guelph

Polk sub

Great for the money

  • from Surrey, BC

Good quality sound

Bought this subwoofer on sale to replace another subwoofer, sounds good for medium sized room. It has enough thumping to complement my surroun system.

  • from Surrey, BC

Sound is all right

Bought this subwoofer on sale, sound is good, my only complain is that the front grill anchor is breaking on its own,

  • from Not Mississauga, ON

Great for most people

I can't speak as an audiophile but this subwoofer is great for a family room or rec room. It's added a lot more punch over a previous subwoofer I had.

  • from Montréal, QC


i give 7 out of 10.

  • from Granby, QC


Hard to find better for that price !!! Where I find ordinary the sound from the music, it is simply incredible when watching movies ! Very please with my purchase, no regrets !

  • from Mississauga, ON

Clear Sound

Nice clean sound, I can define the difference between a string bass and an electric bass on the Polk Subwoofer. It meets all my expectations.
