Hi all - new to here - just a few quick questions about the PSW202...
I just picked usp the CSi30 and the FXi30 and got the PSW202 "free"
Is anyone else using this sub? What do you think of it?
Any suggestions as to how to set it up....
Running off the LFE from my Yamaha RX-V530
Main are an "old" pair of Monitor 7's.... still sound great...

I got one a couple weeks ago and am running it with my RT600i's (all four main speakers) and am pretty pleased although personally, I am wondering whether I really need to use it as the RT's did a pretty good job anyway...
I hooked it up Polk's way using the speaker wire method and it certainly gave more bass volume, sounds great for a midsized room!

I Got the 202 with my LsiC, I hooked it up to my surrounds, The 30's,placed it right behind the couch. I have the 350 hooked up to the Mains, but especially in HT mode the 202 is a nice extra kick in the ass. I don't know that it(the 202) would be my first choice to hook up to the mains...but it will definately work until an upgrade comes along.
Enjoy, Peace, StuffMD

STUFFMD and mikeyboy - thanks for the reply... I think it not a bad Sub (pretty good for free!) but my main have as good or better -3db response than this sub.... Think I will look into an upgrade..... anyone have any suggestions as to a better sub.. remember I only have 75 watts /ch with my Yamaha rx-v530.... so volume is not the problem... freq resp is....

Hey Don, I really like my Psw-350, It shakes the house all the way up to the third floor.....but I have always found( in my experience) that the bigger the room the more sub you need. My HT is setup in a 10by15 room. The 350 does great....15by 15 this sub works well....but as room size increases the bigger the sub you will need.
Just my 2 cents.... Peace StuffMD

I had the option of either taking the PSW202 for free or getting a $200 credit toward the purchase of a higher-end sub. I chose the PSW202. I'm happy with it.
My apartment isn't that big, so I don't need a huge sub. Plus I don't want to create a situation where the neighbors are complaining.
When I get a house of my own, then I'll consider upgrading. Until then, I'm enjoying the free sub.

After using the 202 for a while and playing around with the multiude of setting, I have found this sub to be great for HT but a little lacking for music... but for much the same reason that you have stated, I have decided that for "free" it is a great sub!
