Good for Quality, Tight bass

Summary: I have had one of these for a few years now and it does incredibly well. Setup correctly... this sub will blow your mind for its size, and be well worth the cost. I will recommend this sub for those seeking clean, tight, and crisp bass. (Massive power, small sub.)Don't be mistaken. it doesn't lack power. however if you're looking to impress your friends with noise. you can produce much more of that for much cheaper!
Superb sound, easy set-up, and Jimminie Christmas is it beautiful!

Summary: I was a little skeptical when I first purchased the Polk DSW MicroPRO 3000 Subwoofer because much of my High School and College days were spent throwing absurd amounts of money into Car Audio. Now, as I am addicted to Home Audio, it was tough buying a subwoofer because I had Car Audio as my frame of reference. The Polk DSW MicroPRO 3000 Subwoofer far exceeded all of my expectations in sound, set-up, and beauty.
Summary: I agree with another reviewer on this site. Its a GOOD subwoofer, but not nearly worth the price. I have a 12" infinity 250 watt RMS subwoofer that cost $400. The Infinity actually outperforms my Polk DSW Micropro 3000 in every way (volume, frequency response, speed). The Micropro does hit pretty darn low, and can shake the floor under some conditions. Its not a very musical subwoofer; it sounds late and doesn't have a very good range.
Summary: We needed a subwoofer for a game room that had vaulted ceilings and is large 20x20 with big opening and this subwoofer rocks. It bounces around a bit too much and so I used the screws at the bottom to elevate this up a bit and its less bouncy now. Love it for clean bass and a good looking wife approved form factor.
Amazing bass - still shaking!!! Wish I bought it sooner

Summary: I bought this to use it with my Polk speakers. Front Floor standing TSi500 speakers do have reasonable low frequency response but as soon as I connected Micro Pro 3000, it sounded like low's were not as good even with TSi500 towers. My family loved this addition as we upgraded from Bose where I had read reviews that it's all high and no Low - can not be any far from truth. There is no comparison between Bose and Polk. Polk wins hands down.
Summary: Got it from eBay for a super-low price. Hookup with the receiver by speaker wire. Can hardly feel its existence but once you mute the subwoofer you will know what is missing. (My mains are already pretty good in low-frequency.) Used the mic to auto-calibrate and the result is great. NOTE: the test tunes are horribly loud! Be careful! No humming no booming, but I like this low profile response.
Summary: Low priced subs have cheaper speakers, none or less controlled woofer movement and feedback electronics, and usually expose some resonating frequencies that result in unpleasant booming effects. I could mention half a dozen of subs like that that would produce a lot of uneven and poorly controllable bass that nearly stops your breath with loudness or "air", especially some designs with an open tuned port.
Summary: I've owned this "little" sub for a few months already. Bought it for my 2 channel system because it was the right size, it is a sealed enclosure which I was looking for this application, and yes, it is gorgeous. The performance for both music and Home Theater is incredible. very tight, controlled, musical bass excellent for a 2 channel music system.It is a small sub, but with it's passive radiator and no distorsion technology you can also get it to move a lot of air.
