Polk Audio PSW10 vs Polk Audio PSW111

Polk Audio PSW10 review

Having noticed that audio products manufacturers often have devices that look pretty similar from the first sight, I came up with an idea of testing Polk Audio PSW10 vs Polk Audio PSW111 to see if they differ with their inside features. The PSW10 subwoofer with 50-100 W range between nominal and maximal output power has also an outstanding 10 inches driver that impresses with its deep-bass capabilities. Clarity of the sound is reached with a 85 dB sensitivity and 35-200 Hz frequency response range of this product. And with adjustable low-pass crossover, phase switch & subwoofer volume controls it is especially easy to customize the settings and create the most favorable sounding for your audio system.

Polk Audio PSW111 review

Comparing Polk Audio PSW111 vs PSW10 you will definitely notice a resemblance in the model names. However, after testing these subwoofers I can say that it may be the only similarity between them. PSW111 model has a smaller driver size of 8 inches but inside it we can find a decent nominal-maximal output power range of 150-300 W. Intelligently designed control panel lets you change volume or set up preferable frequencies without unnecessary moves. Unique construction design ensures the PSW111 subwoofer is stable, steady and power efficient while its elegant inner configuration enriches the sound with perfect volume and distortion-free low frequencies.
