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 cherry oak finish is particularly compelling, with a style that fits seamlessly with most modern furnishings.
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 (WxHxD) 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.
