Good 500/550wi subwoofer...Better Polk Audio customer service.
18 July 2014
Summary: I originally bought a dsw pro 400 along with a pair of rtia5, a csia4 and a pair of f/xia4. The 400 develop a random/occassional thumping issue after 2+ years of ownership. The local retailer replaced the original dsw pro 400 with a floor model of the dsw pro 500 at a steep discounted price. Recently, the 500 floor model bit the dust and wouldn't even power on. The local retailer has recently went out of business so I had called Polk Audio for warranty support.
Summary: This thing surprised me. New I would get some descent lows for movies and music, but I wasn't expecting the thump. You can really feel the bass. And as always Crutchfield is great. The best online store or any store that I have ever dealt with. The shipping is usually a couple days ahead of what they tell you, and as with most orders from Crutchfield was free.
Summary: This Sub is bad.. definitely hits harder then I had expected for just having a 200w amp. I wasn't to impressed at first until I call Crutchfield Customer service. These guys are awesome and fast. In less then 2 min they had me in the settings getting all my speakers n sub tuned in just right. Turned the sub up on the receiver, now it's got the floor shaking without the distortion sound. Sounds good with action movies and music. Has that hard hitting bass.
Pros: Hits hard and never gets tired. Great sound and no distortion
Cons: Don't know if i wouldve paid full price for it.. lot of money for me but it definitely is worth every penny
Summary: Does great in my basement, nice bass! once I set the crossover on my receiver so bookshelves were at 80db and the sub at 40 db im not over working my tsx110 bookshelf speakers, and the sun handles the bass beautifully! $300 off with the Polk deal was a great bargain.
