Exchanged it for a PSB 125

emailkenny, Crutchfield
22 January 2014
  • Summary: As the review title states, I returned and exchanged a Polk 110 for a PSB 125. It's been a year and I still prefer and enjoy the PSB 125. So, no regrets. As a matter of fact, I just ordered and received a PSB 100 from Crutchfield.
  • Pros: Overall attractive design (cherry finish).
  • Cons: Sounded cheap to me.

Pathetic

Klaus, Amazon

  • Summary: I have this paired with Polk Monitor II 50 fronts, Polk CS1 II center. and Polk Monitor II 30 rears. It nudges the low end down a bit, but doesn't often add much punch. When watching action movies I'm left wondering where's the BASS I was suppose to get with a subwoofer.

you can do better

  • Summary: Why buy this sub when u can get the psw 505 at the same price? It has a larger driver, more power and a lower frequency response. the 505 is not much bigger as far as size goes, but It's totally different in performance. I had a psw 10 for 2 days.

Wrong Cherry Tint

1 December 2012
  • Summary: I haven't used this product yet but the cherry color is a wrong match for my Cherry colored Polk Rti series. I wish I had a heads up on this before buying.

Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!

D.G., Crutchfield
9 November 2012
  • Summary: Polk should be ashamed of himself to want so much for this weak sub. Replaced it with a Paradigm PDR-8 for the same price and it blew the Polk out of the room. The Polk PSW10 sounds better and is also cheaper!
  • Pros: Built like a tank.
  • Cons: Its the weakest 100 watt sub i've ever heard!!!!

Didn't last past the warranty period

Thomas Malcolm, Amazon
12 March 2009
  • Summary: It does exactly what a sub should do, provide rumbling bass. Until the amp fails. The amp in mine failed after 3 years and now it sounds like the sub is blowing raspberries at me when it plays. Literally. Ha ha, you got me Polk. Verry funny, I own the amazing spitting sub.

Polk customer service was excellent in diagnosing it as a bad amplifier

SLB86, Amazon
12 March 2009
  • Summary: After 3 years (and after the warranty period) the sub started to crackle and pop. There would be a large thumping noise (like a heartbeat) even when the receiver was off and sending no signal. Polk customer service was excellent in diagnosing it as a bad amplifier.

Disappointing Lifespan

Tyler Ash, Amazon
12 March 2009
  • Summary: It died after 3 years of conservative use. I don't expect electronics to last forever, but a 3 year lifespan is disappointing.
