Product Description

The newly reborn Monitor Series by Polk Audio is classic Polk: a quality-built, affordable line of high performance loudspeakers for music and home theater. The new PSW10 subwoofer complements the clean, stylish look of the whole line with powerful, efficient, accurate and musical bass in compact enclosures. Built for speed, power and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound. 1 - 10 Diameter Dynamic Balance Polymer Composite cones Overall Frequency Response 35Hz - 200Hz Crossover variable 80Hz - 200Hz Power Output 50 watts Continuous Average Output / Dynamic Power Output 100 watts Inputs Speaker level, line level Outputs Speaker level Cabinet Size 14-3/8 H x 14 W x 16-1/8 D

Give your movies and music the rich, powerful audio they deserve with the Polk Audio PSW10 powered subwoofer. Hailing from Polk's reborn Monitor series--which ushered in the modern loudspeaker era in the mid-1970s--the sub combines quality construction with high-end performance, all for a price that won't break the bank. The PSW10 is equipped with a 10-inch polymer-composite cone driver that creates tight, musical bass, along with state-of-the-art laser-based Klippel measurement technology to perfectly center the voice coil within the magnetic field. The Klippel technology improves the linearity of the frequencies to ensure a deep, precise sound for everything from action-movie explosions to cello musical passages.

Adding to the quality is the non-resonant medium-density fiberboard (MDF) enclosure, the 0.75-inch baffles, and the internal bracing, all of which contribute to the sub's superior detail, accuracy, and musicality. Meanwhile, the PSW10's built-in high-current amplifier (50 watts RMS, 100 watts dynamic) supplies all the power you need for big bass, while the adjustable low-pass crossover, phase switch, and volume control make it easy to blend your sub's output with your front and rear speakers. The sub even includes automatic signal-sensing circuitry, meaning it knows when to turn itself on and off.

Though the PSW10 will work with any speakers, the sub specifically designed to complement the clean, stylish look and robust sounds of Polk's entire Monitor speaker line. The black oak finish is particularly compelling, with a style that fits seamlessly with most modern furnishings.

Connectivity stems from the line- and speaker-level inputs, along with the unfiltered LFE input. The combined options make it easy to connect the PSW10 with any receiver or amplifier. And movie fans will delight in the magnetic shielding, which protects nearby TVs and video monitors from video distortion. Measuring 14 by 14.38 by 16.12 inches (W x H x D) and backed by a five-year warranty on the speaker and a three-year warranty on the internal amp, the PSW10 makes a great introduction to powerful home theater sound.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great sub for the price..
    At first I was reserved about buying this sub-woofer. However, my reservations went away the minute I hooked it up and was able to dial it into my system.

    I do not even have this thing at full power, but it is able to shake the dual pane windows at the other end of a 15X20 basement room. I decided to test this subwoofer on The Dark Knight and Wanted on Blu-ray. The bass is crisp, clean, and adds to the enjoyment of a movie. It doesn't detract from the rest of the soundtrack like some entry level subs that just make a 'bang'. As some users have noted, low end ranges like thunder do not come in quite as clear as with higher end subs. That said, this is still the best entry level sub under $200 that you can buy.

    /// 4 stars only because no LFE, but an LFE jack can be created quite easily...more info
  • Works fine
    This rounds out the home theatre nicely. The price is nice. I shopped at the box stores and found subwoofers expensive if you could find one as a seperate item. It was easy to hook up....more info
  • Polk Gets Down
    The Polk Sub is a great piece of equipment and you can not beat it for the price that Amazon sold & shipped the unit. It does have a base bottom and begins to flutter a-bit when driven with my crown. However, it goes down and responds decently. I have a JBL 12" Sub and it is comparable.
    Nice unit and Fat sound.

  • Can't beat it for the price
    I'm using this in a bedroom hooked up to a bookshelf system (at 60% volume) and it sounds amazing. I suspect the people who rated this poorly didn't take the time to tune it properly or were using it in a room too large. For a 10 inch subwoofer this thing really bangs, I can't imagine wanting more bass. The fit and finish is wonderful, it's a really nice speaker and sounds even better. Very pleased with my purchase....more info
  • A Top Notch Sub Woofer
    An excellent buy for the price. This Subwoofer added alot to my system.
    I did shop around for this product before making the purchase on Amazon.com. The cost was more than $60. less than I could find it in the retail stores.
    Once again I am a satisfied customer of Amazon.com!
    Thanks again!!!!!!!...more info
  • Excellent sound
    I'm using this with an Onkyo TR-606 alongside a Toshiba 62" DLP HDTV and a full set of Polk speakers, and the sound quality is remarkable.

    The only caveat is that the subwoofer input has two connectors, but you really only need to connect one of them. The manual is far from clear about this, and plenty of people will probably spend extra on a Y cable, or worse yet, put in an adapter which will add both cost and loss of fidelity. But just connecting to the left input works fine. Subwoofers are mono anyway, and the double inputs are primarily there to make certain wiring configurations easier, not to add more sound fidelity....more info
  • nice kick in a small box
    Needed a big sound, but didn't have a lot of space. The Polk PSW10 did the job with flying colors. This thing is a heck of a deal. Definitely the best powered sub I've used for under $100.

    If you're in a small space, this should meet your needs. I am maybe a 12x12 room and it provides more than enough power for me. I have not used it outside of this space, but think you could go maybe 50% more. For anything larger, I'm not sure. Depends on how loud you want to go, I guess.

    This is a good entry-level sub....more info
  • Great!
    I really like this subwoofer, it is relatively portable and easy to set up, and the improvement in my sound system was dramatic!...more info
  • Great sound, price, product, and delivery
    I only have good things to say about this product. I am not a dyed-in-the-wool ultra-audiophile, but I do know good sound when I hear it. This small Polk unit fills a one thousand square foot space with omnipresent bass; that's more than one has a right to expect at the price point. So yeah, I'd recommend it. I actually had to back it down a bit from mid-point for jazz and classical applications. It is really beautiful, and I'd recommend the wood finish, even though I ordered the black. Definitely a quality piece, and it showed up in about two days, standard....more info
  • Nice sub for the $$$
    For my use, this is a very good product. $150 or so shipped, and it gives nice, tight bass response using both the speaker level inputs and, after I received a sub "y cable," the line-in inputs (not at the same time, mind you -- just pointing out I've tried it both ways).

    This is probably nowhere near audiophile quality, but to round out the bass response in my Monitor 50s, it was a nice purchase. Bass response is even and the only anomaly is if your particular track happens to have bass frequencies hovering around the port frequency, it can sound a bit unbalanced. Doesn't get overtly deep, but so far it is deep enough for my purposes. Most of my listening is music instead of movies, though with my limited video-watching, it has performed adequately there as well.

    Rating is "for the money." I really cannot compare it to the higher end subs. I'm pleased....more info
  • Awesome bass
    The Polk Audio product delivers what it promises. The bass is clear and very adjustable. I would buy another in a heartbeat....more info
  • Another quality product from Polk Audio!
    Can't go wrong with this product. Since getting it, movies and TV sound alot better. I can't comment on music yet, since I haven't played a CD/radio, but movies and TV sounds much better now with that bass. It won't BLOW you away with bass, but it gives a nice warm and deep bass that will enhance your theater sound as soon as its hooked up. And its very appealing to the eyes. Makes my audio setup look very professional now. Another great Polk Audio product. If you have a really large room or want to FEEL the bass, you might want to upgrade to a 12" subwoofer or get the more expensive model that handles more watts....more info
  • Nice subwoofer for the price.
    Just an echo of many of the other reviewers, for the price it's hard to go wrong. It runs circles around anything of a similar price point. I wish it had the LFE port, which the 12-inch model has, but you can recreate this fairly easily when you set it up. It is a little but uglier than it's modern counterpart the 111, but at less than half the cost I can hide it in the corner.

    So good sound for a normal to small room at a price point you can afford. This matches will with either the Polk Monitor Series or the TSi series. ...more info
  • Great compliment to my system
    I bought this to compliment my home theater. I have RTIA4's for my fronts, a CSI3 as my center, and this sub fits in really well. I could have gotten a bigger more expensive sub, but for my space I didn't need it. Watching DVD's and playing games on the PS2 is a whole new experience. Now I have to get some speakers for my surround. A great price and product for smaller spaces....more info

  • Great Bang for the Buck
    I purchased this sub to supplement a HDTV set up in my great room. The products works great, allows me to modify the set up easily and has a pleasing design. Overall just a great buy with good sound performance. ...more info
  • Good sub for the money
    I bought this sub to replace a passive subwoofer I already had. I have a Sony DAVFR10W wireless surround system. I love the sound of the system but the passive subwoofer was not cutting it. I needed a little more umph in the bass department. I checked on budget powered subwoofers and read good reviews on the Polk Audio PSW10. The Sony DVD receiver does not have a sub out so I had to wire it line level from the two woofer outputs on the receiver. The PSW10 belts out plenty of bass for a budget sub. I think for what you get for the price, it can not be beat. ...more info
  • Great Sub! Polk makes good stuff

    I am very happy with this sub. It works with my other Polk speakers creating a vibrant addition to the 7.1 surround setup. The price was right. I chose this sub based on other good reviews here at Amazon. I have no complaints about it. The frequency response is great. I've never owned a sub before so I don't know what a bad sub sounds like. This one sounds great to me. Explosions ROCK the house but do not wake the neighbors.

    The build quality is top notch. ALL of the Polk Audio gear I bought from Amazon has had top notch quality to the speakers and cabinets. None of my stuff was DOA. The packaging was great as was the documentation.

    I highly recommend this product.

  • Incredible bass, well built, and enough oooomph
    Love it. VERY solid and well-made. Aesthetically attractive and performs very well. I'm using it with the Polk Surround Bar and two rear shelf speakers to power a 16X16 dedicated home theater. It puts out more-than-enough bass, unless you're trying to go deaf, or impress Snoop Dogg. The clarity is exceptional and the bass is crisp and travels well. Follow the Polk instructions as they are spot-on with hookup procedures that may seem less-than-conventional. Highly Recommended!!!...more info
  • Very Nice, for The Price
    Needed to replace and old Advent 8" sub and after looking around and doing some reading, I settled on this one. While I'd have to agree with a few of the negatives I've read regarding it's performance at high volumes. For me it's a very good fit!

    I don't normally listen at high volumes and if you're also one of these people, I would say look no further. This sub performs very well for your average TV/DVD watcher, the reponse is good and the crossover and loudness adjustments work very well. It was a vast improvement over my old sub. I am more then pleased with my choice and I hope you will be also!

  • Fantastic for the Price
    Purchased this to add low end to my xmas present, a 42" plasma tv. Only drawback has been the Panasonic plasma doesn't have variable audio out like my ancient Sony Trinitron 27" CRT so I have to constantly reach behind the sub and adjust the gain. Quite obviously not a fault of Polk's.
    I only have two gripes about the sub. It seems to change its acoustic signature drastically above 7 on the gain dial. Below its a smooth increase in output, but past 7, the low end gets overly boomy and makes the whole profile unclean.
    Second gripe, mine arrived with a loose piece of MDF rattling around inside the cabinet. A .5" x .5" x 2" piece with glue and 2 staples sticking out of it. Most likely an internal bracket for a corner or some such. Too much effort to send it back, and my daughter, with her tiny agile hands, could reach down and grab it out of the cabinet via the port, once I pulled it off the bottom with a magnetic wand. Told polk about the issue so hopefully if it starts vibrating or going wacky, they'll fix it even past the warranty.

    ALl in all, I'm a happy camper, just have to keep the gain at 7 or less....more info
  • Polk PSW10
    I am not a big fan of booming bass when it comes to my music,and I already had a high power Kenwood sub for my LFE in movies,but this sub was included free with a Polk purchase.I hooked it up and it seems to work just fine even at minimum settings....more info
  • Clean Tight Base
    Produces all the low base I need. At only one half volume it rattles the pictures on the wall. I use it at one third volume. If you need more base than this get 2 of them....more info
  • Amazing subwoofer
    What a great sub. Bought for my home theater and the sound is fantastic....more info
  • Polk PSW10 Subwoofer, Good Buy
    Very good value. Meets all expectations. A little larger than expected but I should have paid more attention to that before purchasing. Easy to set up and blend with my other speakers. Would recomend to friends....more info
  • Love it!
    Purchased after much consideration of all feedback. I am a fan of action movies/music and find that the sub works perfectly in a 5.1 setup with a pioneer tuner. Love the way it sounds with Pink Floyd. Not top of the line but good enough!...more info
