Polk Audio PSW10 review

Looking at Polk Audio PSW10 vs Dayton Audio SUB-1500 we see that the first unit has 10-inch driver while his opponent has 15 inches. The LFE cinema input is supplemented with separate connectors for the right and left channels, and the “hot” speaker terminals are duplicated by the corresponding acoustic outputs. The crossover adjustment range is 60 - 110 Hz. The phase changes only discretely. Despite Polk Audio PSW10 has a 10W low-frequency driver and a 50 watts power amplifier with pick a peak power of 100 watts, the sound pressure is enough for a room of 20 square meters.
