Bring the feel of the cinema to your home, with the Polk Audio PSW 10e.

Power to please
If you’re finding that your movies, music and gaming are missing something, a powerful subwoofer from Polk Audio could be just what you’re looking for. Featuring a 10 inch subwoofer dedicated to bass and powered by a 50 watt amplifier, the Polk PSW10E delivers the bottom line that conventional speakers miss. With bass delivered right down to 40Hz, you get the powerful, dynamic sound that’s usually only found on large, floorstanding speakers.

Punchy, resonant-free sound
This Polk Audio isn’t just about how low the bass goes, it’s about how precise it is, too. The polymer composite cone is highly rigid, meaning it moves with precision – reducing sonic distortion. The cabinet uses solid construction for rattle-free sound. Using a front bass port not only improves the efficiency but also means you can place the subwoofer close to a wall or in a corner, without blocking the port – giving consistent and even bass in all room locations.

Set the perfect balance
Comprehensive controls make it easy to get the PSW 10e to perfectly match your existing speakers and room acoustics. Set the low pass filter for the sub to seamlessly pick up the sound where your existing speakers tail off – from 160 to 80Hz. Then set the phase control to ‘0’ or ‘180’, depending upon whether the sub is placed in front of or behind you. Finally, set the volume to personal taste. Generally the larger and more densely furnished a room is the higher this needs to be – but it’s entirely up to you and there’s no ‘wrong’ setting!

Choice of connections
Designed to work with all types of systems, the PSW10e has both speaker and line level inputs. Line level (phono) inputs are generally used when connecting an AV receiver or certain amps and soundbars. The speaker level inputs work with any system that has conventional speaker outputs. Simply connect your speakers to the subwoofer and wire the sub to your system as though it were the original pair of speakers – simple.

Get right to the bottom line, with the Polk Audio PSW 10e.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, looks and price. Purchased as an upgrade from an 8 inch sub. It's bigger and better in every way. Sounds really good in my corner setup due to the front ported design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap & Cheerful Sub Exceeds Expectations I'm currently playing around with a Chinese tube amp which struggles to produce any sort of bass out of bookshelf speakers (and I've tried a few). A suggestion from another owner of the same amp was to hook a subwoofer between the speaker outputs and the speakers. Since my old Mordaunt Short Alumni had suffered the dreaded "thunder crackle" fault, I took a chance on the cheapest sub that RS had in stock that could handle speaker level input. I wasn't expecting much for the price, it was delivered within two days of ordering which is always a bonus at the moment. Initial examination proved rather disappointing. The build quality and controls were well below the standard I was used to on the Alumni, with everything pared down to what I presume is the lowest possible cost. Not a good start! However, once installed and set up, the unit really confounded my skepticism. Without the sub, while the amp was fine with music on the folky side of the spectrum, anything with more prominent bass and drums really suffered. The little Polk brought the missing basslines to life but didn't cause them to overwhelm the rest of track the way that car subwoofers often seem to do. All in all for the price, you can't fault the unit. I could have spent an awful lot more to get the esthetic niceties that I had previously been used to but, under the circumstances, I'm more than happy with the purchase from an audio perspective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, very happy. Great product, with a nice finish. Works very well with my Denon receiver. More than punchy enough for a small/medium size room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good replacement sub woofer I bought this sub woofer to replace my existing Broken one. It’s sounds great at a good price point

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Substantial high quality smooth deep sound This is a high quality product at a good price. The amplifier more than adequate to get high level and smooth deep bass. I use it in conjunction with tiny Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 speakers and the sound stage is full and integrated, albeit after a bit of necessary adjustment to Pol amplifier level and bass cut off filter point. That the power switch ha a setting that switches off the amp when there is no signal is just sweet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and does the job This unit is solid and well made, I was surprised by its weight and build. Two controls, one for actual depth of sub frequencies and another for the overall volume. Auto switch on/off feature and more besides …connection by single phono where needed or by other more convoluted means. Sound is awesome …I was in a different room and thought a low flying plane was overhead …it was the Polk throwing out the double basses of the London Phil in Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique …I’ve never heard (felt) bass like that. For the price, excellent and I fail to see how anyone would want more expensive units.
