The Polk Audio company has proven itself time and time again to be not only an audio equipment market leader, but a people’s brand as well. The somewhat old subwoofer from Polk Audio, model PSW505 is a unit I’ve been meaning to discuss for some time now. The unit is equipped with some of the highest quality components available today its build is unbeatable by many of the competition’s similar products.

Since its release around 7-8 years ago, the Polk Audio PSW505 can be found at nearly any audio supply store, including Amazon.com which has this subwoofer in stock anytime with a significantly discounted price and options like free shipping available all year round.

Most previous customers were really impressed with the performance of the subwoofer's bass, which they describe to be not only crystal clear and deep but it also imitates the audio level of a real movies theater.

Pros:
  • Dynamic Balance woofer design
  • Huge Hi-Roll Surrounds
Cons:
  • Presents a rather large footprint

This unit is equipped with a 12-inch long-throw woofer with a rating up to 300 watts of continuous power and unfiltered LFE input for use with low pass filtered subwoofer output jacks. Basically the bass it delivers is unbeaten at this price level by any other competitor. And for safety, the PSW505 subwoofer is equipped with a magnet shield, thus making the placement next to any other electronic equipment possible without worry. The unit also features Polk Audio's innovative Dynamic Balance woofer design which helps tune out unwanted resonance.

Considering energy efficiency the guys from Polk Audio equipped this unit with an automatic on and off circuit that will instantaneously turn the amplifier on when a signal is sensed and it will instantly (and automatically) turn it off after 15 minutes of down time. Some of the additional features include a one inch thick front baffle for distortion-free, accurate response and slot loaded venting for less turbulence, noise and distortion. Also, the adjustable low-pass crossover, phase switch and volume control functions allows the user to control the blending of any main speaker, making the entire system user-friendly and easy-to-use.

The Polk Audio PSW505 is a great addition to any home entertainment system, no matter the size of the room in question; the unit is designed especially for larger rooms who can take a life-like bass driven impact. Its simplistic design makes it blend and become an addition to any environment.

This unit is highly recommended all around, not only by my or tech reviewers, but by daily users as well. The high quality materials of the cabinet and entire sturdy construction of this subwoofer, clearly lets you know right from the start that this unit is meant to serve for a long period of time. Durability and amazing sound performance always give a subwoofer a top rating.
