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.
The Polk Audio PSW10 is better subwoofer in this comparison. Check Polk Audio PSW10 price
