Really impressive

By 

from Saint Petersburg, FL

Comments about Polk Audio PSW505 Subwoofer:

I wanted to upgrad an 8 inch subwoofer that I had and after looking at the options, I chose the Polk. It is good looking, easy to set up and sounds great. It really helps those movies come to life, while not sounding too " Boomy". It takes a little time to get the cross over set up right, but it is worth the effort.

Ease of Use
Take the time to set the corss over frequency.

Solid, tight bass. Excellent dispersion. Reasonable price.

By 

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Polk Audio PSW505 Subwoofer:

Polk Audio, in my experience, has always made a quality speaker.  All that I've owned have had great sound at a reasonable price.  The PSW505 Subwoofer follows this as well.  Tight, powerful bass, clean sound and great sound dispersion.  You can hide it behind a chair with no loss of sound quality or performance.

Great but not as a primary sub

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about Polk Audio PSW505 Subwoofer:

I bought this sub to work basically in conjunction with my 12" Klipsch.  The Klipsch is being used for low bass while my polk is being used for medium bass levels.  It does a great job but was very unhappy to see no LFE input, just the basic sterio input on the back, did some research and found out a person can use the red input for LFE though.  Like i said, this is a great accent sub, it doesn't hit very hard but does a great job with the medium bass levels you will sometimes get in movies.  I would not crank the power to high on this sub otherwise you might start getting distortion.  I tuned it in to the level that I normall watch TV's at, if having a house party with the music cranked up I will usually lower the volume on the sub.  The look of the sub is very clean and being the first time I have used a polk I wasn't dissapointed too much.  I think the actuall sub could handle a bit more with a better amplifier but thats just me.

NO BETTER SUB FOR THE MONEY - PERIOD!!!!!!!

By 

from Yalaha, FL

Comments about Polk Audio PSW505 Subwoofer:

No, it does not get the ultra-lows, but in most roome modes, it still reaches VERY low and CLEAR.  One would have to spend twice this amount to gain only marginal improvement.  BUY one before they are all gone!~!!!!

Not worth the money

By 

from Springboro, OH

Comments about Polk Audio PSW505 Subwoofer:

I love Polk speakers they are good, but they make lack luster subs.This sub is not awful and you probably will not hate it, but compare it to something from SVS Sound and you will cry over your bad decision.Go buy a sub from someone who is know for subs, the Polk sub is just lackluster

Accurate and Clear Base Response...

By 

from Frisco, TX

Comments about Polk Audio PSW505 Subwoofer:

Simple design and clear sound.  This sub is a real winner.  Excellent frequency response and virtually no distortion or reverberation.  It functions well as both a home theatre and music sub.

With plenty of power to spare, this sub is guaranteed to rattle your windows.  Installation is simple with true 5-way binding posts.

In our eyes, the only caveat is that the PSW505 is only available in one finish:  Black.
