5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound!, November 21, 2009

This review is from: PSWI225 Polk Wireless Subwoofer (Black) (Electronics)
I'm a budget conscious audiophile and I was a bit hesitant on the whole wireless concept. I was under the impression that I would lose some sound depth...but wow was I ever mistaken. I've owned Polks for years now and have always been impressed by the overall quality of their products. I was also hesitant about the whole "Made in China" side of the equation...but apparently Polk engineers are always on site in China to ensure that all their speakers meet Polk's quality requirements. If any of you are hesitating...don't! This sub does exactly what a sub is supposed to do...in that it properly complements the sound emanating from a good set of main speakers.
Basically...very pleased!

Rico,

Great review. In the past with wireless products of various kinds, I've always had horrible problems with interference. Sounds like that hasn't been the case for you with this sub, right? I love Polk products and now have an installation where one wireless and one wired sub would make great sense -- a 30' x 15' AV room that's connected to a hallway and smaller adjacent room, so tends to be some leakage. Anyway, glad to hear this one worked out for you!

Hi,

Sorry for the time to reply but with young kids running around non stop and all...this kind of slipped my mind. As an update to my review, I noticed that sometimes there was in fact interference with the wireless signal. Unfortunately, Polk uses the most common frequency (i.e., 2.4 GHz) which is used in everything like WiFi routers and such. So I played around with the frequency selector on the back and eventually found one that works great with very little interference. I also upgraded my router to a much better router (Netgear Dual Band Router) and now, I can't remember the last time I heard a bit of interference. Basically, I HAD to make this work as I was not about to run a 30+ foot subwoofer cable through the walls and my wife would not stand to have a cable running on the floor... I also noticed that the wireless connection sometimes drops (just like pretty much any connection) so a simple flip of the switch ON/OFF fixes everything. Suffice to say that I am very happy with the overall sound quality of the subwoor as well as the reliability of the wireless connection...(it just took a bit of playing around with the channels to get everything working great).

Hope this helps.
Cheers!
