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 improvement to system I was already very happy with my system - new Cambridge AXR100D powering two old Monitor BXIIs - but thought this might produce added depth. It did - with a vengeance! Improves sound effects on TV and films, of course, but more importantly gives real presence to lower-register instruments like the double bass. I'm not sure I fully understood the notes re optimising set-up, but I'm very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great with my beolab 6000's Had the sub a couple of weeks now and I am very pleased with the subs performance . All the reviews I found on Amazon where for the most part it was sold in the US were right. For the the price point you can't go wrong . I've hooked it up with my Denon receiver as part of a 5.1 setup and it along with the centre channel have been the game changers . It is more feeling than sound . My lounge is 4m x4m

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for my tannoy subwoofer. I bought this to replace my broken subwoofer. Slotted in with no problems. Played a few dvd s and cds without to much settings alterations. Very pleased with its looks and it fits in very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely made and does exactly what I want it to do This subwoofer was purchased for a very specific purpose. Namely to reproduce the low sounds of a pipe organ for a virtual pipe organ set up using midi manuals and Hauptwerk software on a computer. It does this beautifully when connected to an old ARCAM amplifier. A particularly useful function is that it can accept speaker level input. Amps that lack a separate pre-amp stage or specific subwoofer lineout need this feature. The set up can also play music but, to date we haven't listened to a lot so I can't comment on how it works more generally. I'm guessing very well. You can set volume and cut off frequencies and phase shift; coupled to decent speakers it should work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Punchy, responsive and very well built. I was looking for an affordable sub to complement some passive bookshelf speakers (Arcam Musos). The Polk arrived in no time at all and was easy to get going. Bring able to run the speakers from the sub was ideal for my setup. The auto power on/off is useful and reliable. Frequency and phase adjustments mean that you can fine tune to sub to just how you want it. I'm running this off a Cambridge Audio amp and I'd say the sub is set to perhaps 7% volume, which is plenty loud enough. Obviously a lot of power here which I look forward to using with many different kinds of music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahhhh....that's where the bass goes... Wanted to see what difference a sub would make to my system. Ancient Mission cinema speakers are nice and clear, but lack drive. I like heavy, bass laden music and films and this sub has been eye opening. It's amazing how much of the bottom end was missing, even for bass guitars or low drums, it now fills the room with pulsing low end. I'm really happy with this addition and have been showing it off. Separate volume and frequency controls are great as i can have the main speakers lower whilst the sub just deals out the bass at a constant level. I will not be without a sub again! If you are thinking about it, just buy it! Be careful to check the output on your amp first, i bought the wrong cables and had to order something else to suit (single phono into dual).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Input Features I have good speakers, but there is a limit to the bass an 8” cone can deliver. I have been looking for a sub woofer for some time, but most are wired for RCA cable from cinema/surround sound amplifiers. I wanted one which connected directly to my older quad cabled stereo speakers so I could match my amplifier’s “sound”. This Polk subwoofer provides both inputs and has allowed me to augment my speakers with excellent bass using the volume and crossover filter controls. The power, volume and quality are perfect tor my 50m2 room. I wish I had bought one sooner as it brings an added dimension of base I have been buying my hifi from Richer Sounds since they opened in 1991 and never been disappointed. Much of my equipment is still going strong. My speakers are good but the bass
