PSW10 is a great addition to any subwooferless system and will bring your movie watching experience to the next level. 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.

They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime. The voltage of the item is Standard US Voltage / 120 volts.

From the Manufacturer

The PSW10 subwoofer fills in the bottom end of your home theater system, so your main speakers don’t have to perform bass duty, instead having only to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. If you’re looking for your first subwoofer, look no further than the PSW10. It’s a great solution for completing your sound system and will take your viewing experience, movies, games and TV to a higher level of enjoyment.

key features

  • 10- inch Dynamic Balance® woofer delivers both the deep pounding bass demanded by action movies and the speed and finesse required to bring music to life.
  • Intelligent amplifier is designed to deliver gobs of power when your music or movie needs it, and consume very little power at low volumes or standby mode.
  • Compact non-resonant cabinet easily tucks out of the way, yet its forward firing design produces maximum impact at all volume levels, so you’ll always feel the PSW10’s big bass presence in the room.

take a look inside this product


Dynamic Balance® Woofer Design. Polk perfected the method of analyzing a speaker’s microscopic behavior with laser interferometry. With that information in hand, Polk engineers select the ideal combination of materials, geometry and construction techniques to literally “tune out” unwanted resonance. The result is a subwoofer that delivers pure, distortion-free deep bass.

Klippel Optimized Woofer. Using a state-of-the-art Klippel distortion analyzer, Polk engineers optimized the woofer’s motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension, bringing you the best possible performance even at the most extreme listening levels.

Composite Polymer Cone. We don’t use cheap paper cardboard woofers. This is the real deal and part of why the PSW10 subwoofer outperforms the competition.

why you should consider this product

If you’re new to the excitement of home theater audio, or looking to complete your first serious sound system, the PSW10 is the perfect subwoofer to bring heart pounding big bass thrills to your movies, gaming and favorite TV programs without breaking the bank.

Style Name: Bookshelf Speaker
The Polk Audio T15 speakers are a good option if you are on a budget and the speakers are on sale as they can often be. At $100+ I feel there are better sounding options for a little more money like the Polk Audio TSi100 bookshelf speakers which sell for $130-150. Doing a audio comparison between the 2 pairs of speakers, the TSi100's produce a noticeably fuller sound than the T15's. The T15 has a frequency response of 60Hz-24kHz compared to the TSi100's frequency response of 53Hz-25kHz. While on paper that is a small difference, the TSi100's produce significantly better bass. The sound from the TSi100's is also crisper and has better detail. The difference in audio quality between the 2 pairs Polk speakers is quite stark.

I'm using the T15's with a FiiO A1 Mini Amp for an inexpensive, compact setup to play music from an iPhone in my kitchen. The T15's work great for that purpose. They would also work great as inexpensive surround speakers. I found the T15's audio quality to be comparable to the Polk Audio OWM3 speakers which are primarily used as surround speakers. The T15's have better bass while the OWM3's sound brighter. If looking to mount the speakers on a wall, the OWM3's have the clear advantage of being 4.1" deep versus the T15's which are 7.25" deep.

The T15's look and feel very well built. They also feature a wall mount with integrated key hold slot. The T15's are a solid performing inexpensive speaker. If you are looking to purchase the T15's, I'd do so if they are on sale for $80 or less since there are better options out there for a little more money if spending $100+ on the T15's. I purchased my pair when they were on sale at Best Buy for $50. At that price they are fantastic speakers.

Style Name: Bookshelf Speaker
I purchased these a couple of months ago when beginning my new surround sound set up. Got these with a yamaha rx-v373 receiver then. Devices I had connected were a 40" lcd hdtv,roku2hd video & music streamer, an iPod, and an lg bluray/cd player with additional streaming. I knew I would end up getting more powerful floor speakers for mains, a sub & center so I didn't want to overspend on bookshelf speakers that would end up being rears. Testing these at BB vs higher end polks, & klipsch that were double to triple the price was surprising. Very subtle difference, except being able to hear the slightly better bass on the more expensive options. Compared to a Pioneer set at the same price of these T15s, Polk blew Pioneer away, even to me without true "audiophile" hearing. Before completing my speaker set up I used these as mains, and after breaking in these sounded great in my condo. Crisp, clean highs, full mids, and decent puchy bass (these go down to 60 hz).

Here's the full set up I have since added...polk tsi 400, cherry as fronts, polk cs20, cherry center, and a polk psw 505 sub. You can see my reviews for those separately. Set all speakers to "small". 16 gauge wire for these rears, 14 gauge for fronts & center, lfe cable from receiver for sub. Verdict? Audio bliss! Since I set my sub crossover to 60, and since rears don't typically receive deep base signals anyway in video, I could upgrade these rears by spending double or triple price and hear absolutely no difference. With a good sub & fronts, center, rears that collectively handle down to 60 hz, if using as rears I highly recommend these. And for 100 bucks or less (I see these are down to 70 now on amazon) you wont't find bookshelfs that can rival these. Polk makes high quality speakers even at there lowest range.

Style Name: Bookshelf Speaker Verified Purchase
I bought these for my rear surround sound speakers. They are mounted to the wall using pinpoint mounts and hardwired audio outlets, so all the wiring is in the wall. These sound amazing. I had a set of Panasonic rears, they were micro speakers sort of like the tiny Bose speakers. These are far better. I now have much more audio coming out of the rears than i ever noticed before and that annoying feedback hiss is gone if I put my ear close up to the speaker. They are not too heavy and just the right size to complete the room. I will also note that Polk Audio has some of the nicest packaging in the industry, they box and foam interior is very protective. My speakers shipped from Washington State to the East Coast and the box was mint. I don't know how they would be for front speakers (I have a set of towers) but as rear or 7.1 side speakers these are a terrific addition and at a cost of $100 a set for Polks you really cannot go wrong here.

Style Name: Subwoofer Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I was one of those people that read about 200 hundred reviews before I decided on the PSW10.

I am glad I did, it sounds really nice... good depth and nice pop/boom for the money (and I would pay a lot more for this knowing what I know now). Now I have an enclosed media room with no windows and the sound is brilliant. If you looking for a cheap sub, you got one here that is worth it. All these people are really being honest.

Maybe this helps, maybe not, but if I took the time to write a review... I REALLY LIKED IT!!!!

Style Name: Subwoofer Verified Purchase
I am incredibly impressed with the PSW10. After a few hours tweaking knobs on both the subwoofer and the receiver, I have reached close to perfection. Despite the large physical size, the PSW10 seems to have disappeared! Instead, the entire room is filled beautifully with low frequencies melding perfectly with my surround sound speakers. I am no longer staring at the subwoofer when something is exploding on-screen, distracted by a distorted, booming sound.

Ignore the reviews stating that this sub is boomy and unable to accurately hit the lows. This is not the PSW10's fault. Cranking the volume knob on the PSW10 is not the way to achieve more bass or lower frequencies! Plan on spending some time to get the PSW10 just right. Listen to a wide variety of music and movies. The PSW10 will sing in perfect harmony with your set-up when tuned correctly. You will hear new lows in music you have listened to for years. You will feel the explosions in your body on your favorite action films. For around $100, this subwoofer is an absolute steal.
