Summary: Hooked this subwoofer up in parallel with a pair if Polk Atrium 4 speakers. The natural roll off of the subwoofer and the satellites blend perfectly. To some it may appear to be a pricey system for an outdoor porch but it sounds great.
Summary: I had a hard time rating between 1-2 stars. I love the idea of this unit. However, Polk should really consider how to place/market it. It costs the same as a powered unit. IT is not (and I knew that going in). The materials act like you can give this its own channel - which was my preference.
Summary: I have been very impressed with the bass provided by the Polk 10" Sub. I have a large outdoor pool area and used 2 10" subs that fill the whole area with good sound. I think that placement along walls and some distance from each other helps a lot.
Summary: So I needed a sub to compliment my kicker outdoor speakers. At first I thought the sub was powered and after opening it,, realized it wasn't. Guess I should have read it a little closer. Anyway, I have the sonos connect amp.
Pros: Outdoor, lightweight, mountable to the ground by twist and lock, theft prevention via and steel eyelet. Decent bass that won't anger your neighbors.
Summary: These can be an excellent solution if you're looking to round out an exterior system on the lows and mid-lows. If you're looking for a bone rattling ultra-low frequency sub, find a powered one that can handle the outdoors.
Pros: An excellent solution for me to round out the lows and mid-lows and add an overall "richness" to my outdoor sound.
Cons: Be prepared to tweak things to get the sound you want in your specific application - adding volume control and/or using a pair - especially when using with other brand speakers.
Summary: I have a double deck consisting of (2) 16x20 decks with a step down between. I have the larger Def Tech speakers on the house and they sound great, but you lose the base as you are on the lower deck so I thought I'd try this. It arrived 18hrs after I ordered it (amazing).
Pros: Superior outdoor sound quality, paintable
Cons: Took 2 of them to get the sound I was looking for, crossover setting a little high for my taste in Sub bass.
