Polk Audio PSW125 review

The Polk Audio PSW 125 subwoofer is equipped with a large 12-inch diameter woofer and a powerful 300-watt amplifier and is designed to sound large rooms. The built-in amplifier is precisely matched to the bass to achieve the best sound control over the entire frequency range.

This is not a small subwoofer. Polk Audio PSW125 vs BIC America F12 weighs more (18,2 kg vs 9,2 kg). Despite the considerable physical dimensions, it does not look bulky. Possibility of connection via linear stereo, low-frequency LFE, and acoustic. In this model, there are signal level and input filter controls, and an absolute phase signal switch.
