Recently, I ran into a need to change my home subwoofer. After a thorough research, my choice was made for Polk Audio PSW10 vs Pioneer SW-8MK2 pair. The one by Polk Audio has a 10 inches driver on the front panel with a 50 W nominal and 100 W maximal output power. With a 85 dB sensitivity and 35-200 Hz frequency response range this subwoofer produces exceptionally clear sound. The combination of high-quality polymer woofer composition, enclosure construction techniques and proper speaker geometry results in an outstanding experience while listening to your favourite tracks.
Experiencing a need to make changes in my home audio setup I surfed through the internet to find a new subwoofer. That’s how I came to testing Pioneer SW-8MK2 vs Polk Audio PSW10. Pioneer product has a similar to the Polk one nominal-maximal output power range of 50-100 W, however its audio amplifier output power is higher – 100 W. I was pleasantly surprised with a room-shaking realism, brought by its down firing 8 inch driver and the vented enclosure producing an outstanding bass sound. And with adjustable phase and low-pass filter controls I could set up a decent sounding preferred by my ears.
