Polk PSW505

 

March 2004 Polk PSW505 subwoofer. $1299 It was in 1987 somewhere in Maryland that I first saw Mathew Polk's creations in person for the first time

Next time you're in DC say 'Hi' to Mathew for me.

Pounds!!

 

I could not be happier with this sub. I have it, had it, in with 2 infinity towers, some little KLH monitors, and a Polk center channel. Not an audiophile quality system but hey, it rocks my world. Watch that Star Trek reboot, the first one, this thing...

It pounds ; 12 picks up a great range from deep lows to those weirdish highs ; COD sounded just amazing ; Action/adventure/Sci-Fi movies are great on this sub ; I listen to a lot of rap/hip-hop and this thing just goes to town on that type of music. Oh...

Cannot hook up in my apartment building. Neighbors would get ultra PO'd. Plus I have a state trooper living downstairs now ; Very heavy, kind of a beast to move ; Sharp corners ; I'm really stretching for some cons here

Great Sub

 

When you set it up be sure to use the receiver to control the frequencies that are sent to the sub amplifier to obtain the best sound balance among all speakers.

The sub is easy to set up and sounds great. When properly paired with a receiver the bass can be set to fit your taste

No real cons yet

Decent Sub

 

I got this sub after I got my dad a Polk sub. I bought him the super epic 1100 watt RMS 8 inch Polk. That thing is epic. Of course it is, right? But after hearing how amazing that thing sounded, I decided to go with this one. It's a great sub for...

Polk is a high end brand in home and car audio. With that in mind, I decided to get this sub instead of a different one in the same price range. It's a good sub, but not great. It does get loud, it does rumble pretty good, but it doesn't like really...

Tends to distort with really low bass. Bass frequencies below 40 hz and this thing will just distort and pop. It's not really bad, I've heard much much much worse. But its bad enough that I was disappointed. If super low bass is important to you, then...

Very impressive for the price

 

If you buy this subwoofer it is better to give it a very long burn in time before you expect it to truly drive to it's full potential. As with all stereo speakers, you must give them time before you drive them as hard as they can go. I've had mine for...

Very tight bass, the punch behind it and how together it sounds is comparable to some sealed subwoofers. The standby mode that automatically turns it on and off is nice as mine is tucked away where the switch is not easily accessible

The manual included is a little lacking and the setup instructions are a tid bit unclear

Polk Audio PSW505

 

This thumps. I wasn't expecting this sub to be so powerful. I had to reduce the volume quite a bit so the people upstairs would quit stomping on the floor, and so it would sound level with the rest of the speakers

Very heavy. Not a total con but it does make me have to prepare for it

good value

 

For a family room, den, bedroom, office, etc system this can be a good economical choice that sounds quite good. But for a dedicated theater or media room, I'd recommend something else like Definitive or other better performing subs.

Picked this up on sale, not used in my primary media room but used in a basement bar system, and it sounded very good for the cost. Well built, good construction

At full msrp there are alot of better options out there, but the common sale/street prices make this sub a good all around value ; For a 12" it really lacks the solidity and extension in the lower range. Starts to get a little sloppy at high volume

Excellent purchase

 

Great product. Watch the price and timing...you can get incredible deals if you just keep watching !!!

I was concerned that this unit wouldn't have the power for a large room (17 x 25 ft) with cathedral ceilings. This sub handles it with ease!!! Mostly watch movies but music is excellent also. Didn't even know some of the bass lines existed prior to...

None... I read lots and lots of reviews and all the complaints are unwarranted unjustified
