Product Details

Polk Audio PSW Series 8" Powered Black Subwoofer, Model PSW111BK (Sold As Each)

Features:

  • Floor Coupled Port
    All woofers feature a floor coupled downward firing port. This configuration brings you maximum bass impact while keeping the front of the cabinet as low profile as possible
  • Composite Woofer
    We don't use cheap paper cardboard woofers. This is the real deal and part of why PSW Series subwoofers outperform the competition
  • Klippel Optimized Woofer
    By using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analyzer, Polk engineers were able to optimize the woofer's motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension bringing you the best possible performance even at extreme listening levels. Click here for a technical explanation
  • Dynamic Balance
    A Polk perfected method of analyzing a speaker's microscopic behavior with laser Interferometry. Polk engineers can tune out unwanted resonance and distortion with the right combination of materials, geometry and construction techniques. This brings you pure, distortion free sound.
  • Multiple Hook Up Options
    LFE, line and speaker level inputs, and speaker level inputs allow easy connection to any system
  • Intelligent Amplifier
    PSW Series subwoofers use intelligent amplifiers. This means, not only can they put gobs of power to your woofer, they'll use very little power at low volumes or standby mode
  • Sturdy Feet
    Keeps the sub from sliding across the floor when played at high volumes
  • Loud and Low Rated
    Polk home subwoofers are provided with CEA-2010 "Loud and Low" Spec. What does this mean? Instead of using the usual "inches and watts" method, we've leveled the playing field so you can easily and accurately compare the performance of different subwoofers measured the same way

      Comments about Polk Audio PSW Series 8" Powered Black Subwoofer:

      I was disappointed at first, the speaker sounded a bit flat. After all five other speakers were set up and adjusted I went back and just lowered the SW volume a bit and it just fell into place, harmonically speaking.
