If you need a great in-floor sub that pounds and gets fairly low this is it
3 April 2014
Summary: I'm a big Polk fan. In fact most of my upcoming house build will feature Polk products (in-wall, in-ceiling, and in-floor subs). I am installing 4 for these in-floor subs in my great room powered by 2 Polk SWA500's (designed to match up w/these subs). While I haven't installed these subs yet, I have listened to them simply outside of the shipping box and they perform great. I have demoed them on both music and movies and there output is very nice.
Summary: I'm a big Polk fan. In fact most of my upcoming house build will feature Polk products (in-wall, in-ceiling speakers, and in-floor and in-wall subs). I am installing 4 for these in-floor subs in my great room powered by 2 Polk SWA500's (designed to match up w/these subs). While I haven't installed these subs yet (house is still under construction), I have listened to them simply outside of the shipping box and they perform great (in my current home).
Pros: performance, out of sight sub
Cons: under 30 hz material, pricey when you consider the cost of the sub and amp compared to a "normal" sub, but then again it would take up floor space.
Summary: It's not perfect, but it's darn good. I bought 2 for my living room, which is 12x18, and it rocks pretty hard. I built a "false" wall to house these, a left and right in-wall speaker and a center channel, as well as to hide the wires to my TV which is wall mounted. My only regret is not doing enough to make the framing sturdier because these puppies shake the wall. They're great.
Summary: The product by itself is a great design but for it to be installed properly you need a big area in your ceiling to mount this baby. If you have a walk around ceiling--like Maryland homes do-- there would be no problem to mount this product. Buyer beware of size problems...returned product never heard sound quailty.
Summary: This is the sub for my living room where I have 5.1 in the walls. I watch movies and TV and also listen to a lot of music in the room. This sub is mounted in the wall of the A/V closet, with the grill facing out into the room. It just looks like a small HVAC register, and that's the only part you see unless you're actually in the closet. It's powered by a 300W BASH amp and works beautifully.
