"The deep bass was impressively deep for a sub as small as the PSW111. And when we popped in a few CDs, the sub's definition was above par. It's an amazingly good sub for the money."
"But the overwhelming sense I had from early listening was one of warmth. The low mid-range, the place where male voices, cellos, and trombones live, suddenly came alive. I could hear all this ambience I wasn't hearing before in movies and TV shows — street noises, intakes of breath, footsteps. Sure, you could take this sub to the slamming max if you want, but the main takeaway I have from adding this component into my system is that things have been put into balance again."
Unique driver materials, speaker geometry and construction techniques produce clean, crisp sound and effortlessly big bass, especially when you need it most, makes it possible for the PSW111 to pack all the power of Polk Audio technology into just a little over a square foot. Experience the strongest bass you'll ever feel in one of the smallest subwoofers you’ll ever find.
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. Smart circuitry, superior compression and an intelligent amplifier deliver highly efficient bass with low distortion and enhanced blending.
When it comes to subwoofers, build quality is everything. The acoustically-inert, furniture-grade MDF cabinet construction reduces resonance and distortion, so you get rich, detailed audio the way it's meant to be heard-minus the muffled noise and rattled disruption inherent in low-quality, lesser-than audio equipment.
Specially tuned, downward-firing ports produce maximum bass impact and keep the cabinet's front profile as sleek as possible. Presented in a softly rounded cabinet with a nicely finished cloth grille, the PSW111 blends seamlessly into any home environment, no matter where you listen.
On the rear panel, you'll find an impressive range of connections that allow the PSW111 to play nicely with any amp + speaker configuration. As you'd expect, the LFE/Line-In connections will hook up to the Sub Out or Pre-Out of your receiver/amplifier. If your amp doesn't have these output connections, take advantage of the PSW111's high-level speaker in/out terminals to connect the sub via your front-channel speaker path.
With the PSW111 in the middle of your amp and speakers, the sub picks up the tonal qualities of your processing chain and handles the low-frequency crossover before passing the signal through to your stereo loudspeakers. Your stereo or surround system will come to life as the subwoofer blends seamlessly with the speakers.
