Sony SACS9 vs Polk Audio PSW10

Sony SACS9 review

Sony SACS9 vs Polk Audio PSW10 has 115 W power, while the other is 50 watts. It is recommended that the CUT OFF FREQ controller be set to 200 Hz for maximum use of the low-level converter function. The subwoofer is a classic black cube, which in our opinion is a definite plus.

The output of the phase inverter is located at the rear, which should be noted when placing the sub. The main controls are located on the back panel. There are no legs, instead, the rubber stickers are included. You must stick it to the bottom of the subwoofer.

Polk Audio PSW10 review

It is a 10-inch active sub with a polymer composite diffuser. The PSW10 has a 50W amplifier. In the sound of the sub, the power and quality properties are perfectly harmonized. You can adjust the gain in a very wide range.

PSW-10 ideally works with the recommended manufacturer of AS from its catalog. Beautiful decoration of the furniture class - stylishly in harmony with the decor of the room. The heavy-duty MDF chassis is designed to provide the ideal volume and is carefully tuned to eliminate distortion at low frequencies. Polk Audio PSW10 vs Sony SACS9 has speaker level output (pair), while the SACS9 hasn't.
