Polk Audio PSW10 vs Klipsch K100-SW

Polk Audio PSW10 review

PSW10 is a 12-inch subwoofer with an amplifier power of 50 watts. The Dynamic Balance driver and non-resonant chassis provide a deep, smooth response. The front panel pleases the eye with a pretty silver color.

Polk Audio PSW10 vs Klipsch K100-SW has the front panel is silver color. It is located a speaker with a diffuser made of a polymer composite with a concave dust cap, also FI port of a rather large diameter. Adjustment elements are displayed on the back panel, stereo inputs are linear, and high-amplitude. The output is only high-amplitude.

Klipsch K100-SW review

The Klipsch K100-SW subwoofer features a 10-inch subwoofer and a fully digital amplifier. Klipsch K100-SW has 100 W nominal power vs Polk Audio PSW10 has only 50 W. It can fill your room with low-frequency energy, which you can not only hear, but also feel.

Outwardly decorated very elegantly: the black case in combination with a golden speaker looks cool. On the back panel, you can find all the necessary inputs and outputs. Also, it accepts LFE, so you can connect it to most of the receivers available on the market.
