Wow This sub woofer is the best thing I could have bought for my home stereo. From the time I hooked it up and adjusted the power . My floor,windows and the walls of my house began to shack rattle and roll. I mean it's the bomb as the kids say. Really I would recommend it to anyone...... Have fun and good listening...........Joe

I paired this sub with (5) Polk LS Vanishing series in-wall speakers in my home theater which is 23x15 feet. I wanted something powerful enough for LFEs and good percision for music as well. I went by reviews only since my local stores didn't have infinity and my Polk options were not that good. All I can say is they were right-on. This sub does not dissapoint. It has enough power to shake the room without being boomy like others can be. Music sounds very good as well (as I expected from infinity). Even at lower volumes it compliments the speakers nicely. I almost bought a different product but glad I didn't - this one was well worth the extra money.

This new unit [PS410] is a direct replacement for an Infinity PS10 with a 10" diameter subwoofer bought in 2003, which was moved to my bedroom area for my stereo system. This one [the new PS410], provides me the deep, clear and defined bass needed for listening to the Rippingtons [C-Jazz] or David Arkenstone [New Age] music. When listening to Zyce & Flegma [titled "Goa Trip A", Electronica music], the unit has a clear bass feel for the music, when wired into the 6.1 - 900 w. RMS system. The unit was easy to setup, wire into the Sony AV reciever and balance the sound characteristics within the large family room.

I replaced my old Infinity sub with this model. Works great. The trick on all subwoofers is to realize they are to supplement the signals coming in to the main speakers, not to function as a separate speaker. Many overuse or blow them by trying to shake the walls each and every moment. I hope never to have to use the warranty. However....

Even though Amazon had it advertised as One year warranty, I knew from prior experience that all Infinitys have five year warranties. This info was not included in the box. In fact, no warranty info was included with this order.
I went to their website and downloaded the warranty sheet that should have been included with my order. Their operation manual at their website was identical to the one I received. The warranty comes as a separate document. If I have bought a refurbished unit advertised as new, I need to know it now so I can return it.

When I decide to buy this subwoofer I chose 10" for my room of 20 sqm to be conservative, but when I conect it was more than I expected. The sound is clear and smooth with and impresive power and no distortion, work very well with my Yamaha RXV-677, I m very happy whit this Sub.

This subwoofer is exactly what I needed. It has the perfect balance of deep booms and subtle thuds to round out your action movies and FPS games. It was also a perfect middle ground as far as price to quality. It isn't the cheapest sub around, but I have friends who got one of the cheap-but-popular subs for their home theaters. They are more distracting than anything. The goal of a subwoofer is to have it blend in and not be obvious which speaker(s) are projecting your low frequencies. Cheap subs just blast out garbled rumbles, this one is subtle, but powerful.

I bought this to replace my older Infinity PS10 sub that I had for ten years before its amp went out. Strangely, Infinity's site doesn't have any information about 10 inch subs in their lower primus line anymore. The only 10" sub I found was in their reference product line. So I wasn't sure if this PS410 model had been discontinued, but it was one more reason I decided to hurry and order it, because I didn't like the other three options in case this one sells out. The reference line is a little out of my price range, and the primus 8 & 12 inch subs were too small & big. The 10 inch was perfect, and I would highly recommend it for the value and sound quality.

This PS410 is a little bit longer front-to-back than my PS10 was. Make sure you take note of the dimensions in the product description before ordering. One reason I like this size is it's the most cube-like. I think the tall & narrow 8-inch sub looks kind of lame in comparison, as well as giving up a small amount of low-hz range. IThe 12-inch is also more of a cube, and I would have loved to buy that one, but I simply don't have the shelf space for it (the 10 fits perfectly in my setup).

The switches and inputs on the back are on-par for what you'd expect on a subwoofer. You have volume, crossover frequency (50hz-150hz), LFE/Normal switch, phase switch (0, 180), and L/R inputs, both standard RCA as well as the posts for raw speaker wire. Most people (myself included) will only need one of the L/R inputs, but it's cool that it supports both in case you have a serious dual-sub (5.2 / 7.2 / etc) setup.

Another thing I've noticed they have improved since my previous Infinity sub is the transition between sleeping and playing. My PS10 would take a few seconds to wake up after receiving a medium-volume signal to wake it up, and would often make a chirping noise. This PS410 is very responsive and doesn't make any weird noises when waking up.

My wife and I can't agree on whether or not to keep the black cover on the front, but fortunately, the sub looks and sounds fantastic either way.

Overall I am loving this subwoofer and hope it can give me at least another 10 satisfying years of window-shattering, neighbor-waking awesomeness.

Wanted a sub woofer for music only, particularly jazz, no video. Paired with my Magnepans. Very pleased with the sound. Right amount of bass, doesn't overpower the speakers and keeps up with the MG-IIs.

I bought this for music and as a low frequency effects (LFE) unit for my home theater. I have a medium sized living room and this subwoofer is perfect for it. The movies are superb, and listening to music is a joy. Getting down into the 30's and even high 20's Hz ranges, with clarity, really completes the home theater and adds to the music listening experience. The controls are simple and straightforward. The sound is clean, clear, subtle, and beautiful. I'm sure this sub could really shake my walls down, but that's not what I want. I want perfect music, and thrilling home theater. This subwoofer really delivers, and does so at a very fair price. Kudos to Infinity for making a great product.

I bought this to replace an old Sony 12" 150 watt sub. The Sony sounded good. This sounds better. The bass this thing puts out is very clean and smooth. Drops down to 27Hz so you can feel those nice, deep, low moments in movies and music. The best part about this sub is that it never gets that "muddy" sound that so many other subs get. It lacks a little as far as punch goes, but it is a ported sub, so that's expected. It would be great if they made a sealed enclosure version of this, I'd buy one in a heartbeat. I'm using this in a 14x22 family room that is open to a 13x13 dining room and a 10x12 kitchen area. This sub does a good job of filling up the large area with sound. Overall, I'm very happy with it. It's a keeper.
