Comparing subwoofers I was wondering how can devices with the similar nominal-maximal output range (50-100 W) and amplifier output power (50 W) differ. Once, I’ve started testing Polk Audio PSW10 vs Yamaha YST-SW012 it became more clear. 10-inch device by Polk Audio has an advantage of adjustable low-pass crossover and phase switch presence. Also, it has detachable grilles that add an extra protection for the driver and the whole device. A decent low-frequency sound is reached with a help of its 85 dB sensitivity and 35-200 Hz frequency response range. An intelligently engineered PSW10 subwoofer is composed to bring distortion-free low frequencies and eliminate standing waves or other performance-robbing resonances.
While testing Yamaha YST-SW012 vs Polk Audio PSW10 subwoofers I was impressed with the power of the sound that can be created by 10-inch and 8-inch devices. 50-100 W nominal-maximal output range of Yamaha product combined with 28-200 Hz frequency response provides a decent clear sound. Its 8-inch multi-range driver with magnetic shielding ensures deep low-frequencies sounding for your music, movie and game effects. Linear Port minimizes extraneous noise while unique construction design keeps it stable for more efficient use of power.
