Polk Audio PSW10 Review
Polk Audio PSW10 adds accurate and booming bass to sound with its 10” woofer and 50 watt RMS amp. The power rating may seem to be less compared to some of the other subwoofers, but this subwoofer definitely improve your audio experience. The PSW10 subwoofer has enough features to add solid bass to normal sound and, thanks to its affordable price, it is an excellent sound accessory for many home sound and home theatre systems. This is a compact subwoofer in an MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) cabinet which adds solidity through its 26 pound weight.
Polk Audio is a household name not only in its country of origin, the United States. It is well known in many other countries in the world thanks to its superior performance in the automobile and home speakers areas. The Polk Audio PSW10 is not the “boom-iest” subwoofer available in the market, but it adds plenty of thrills to any home theatre or sound system. The PSW10 subwoofer can integrate with most of the home theatre and sound systems. The receiver can either be hooked up to the sub through speaker-level or line-level connections. The low pass crossover continuously varies so that you can customize the sound to match this subwoofer with your other speakers.
What are the functionalities ?
Many choose powered subwoofers that cause so much rattle that the wall frames shake. The PSW10 subwoofer is not the rattling kind. What it produces is accurate bass that adds superior quality to your home theatre system. Instead of producing muddy sounds, this subwoofer thumps and rumbles keeping sound clarity at its best. For connecting the PSW10 subwoofer, you get to use the stereo speaker level inputs and outputs along with the RCA line-level inputs. There is no direct / LFE input to bypass the onboard 80Hz to 160Hz crossover control. Matching the PSW10 with Polk's Monitor 30 satellite speakers is fairly easy and this can be done during the installation phase. The installation process itself is simple and the user manual takes you through a step-wise process to start and complete the job. The Polk Audio PSW10 subwoofer has an inbuilt amplifier to supply 100 watts peak power (50 RMS) for deep and low end sound with minimum distortion. The MDF enclosure is non-resonant and contains a 3/4-inch baffle and a flared/vented bass port. The bass clarity is beautifully maintained by this subwoofer through its compression circuitry and Klippel laser measurement technology. The frequency response in this subwoofer ranges between 30Hz and 200Hz. The smart amplifier on/off circuitry can sense the signals and work accordingly. You can personalize your sound experience with the adjustable volume control of the subwoofer. The PSW10 subwoofer has dimensions of 14.5x14x15 inches and is available in cherry and black vinyl cases. It has a titanium finish front baffle that adds a touch of class to its appearance.
Conclusion: should I buy it ?
The specifications of the Polk Audio PSW10 may seem low end, but the bass quality is immense. It produces deep and accurate bass that has the right kind of thump for producing excellent sound for home theatre systems.
