    Default Is the PSW110 worth it?

    I ordered 2 Monitor60's, 2 Monitor30's and a CS1 from NewEgg. I got a decent price on their Black Friday sale. They should be better than the T15's and CSR I was using.

    Another large retailer has a PSW110 for $125. Is the PSW110 a decent sub? I'm currently using an Older Sony 100W sub.

    It'a an excellent sub for the money if you get it on sale. It should be a vast improvement on your Sony.

    That's a great price for that sub. Why don't you share which large retailer it is that has them on sale in case anyone else would like to pick one up?

    LOL!

    Can't beat the price though. It should, in theory, be an upgrade.

    All the older equipment is going into the finished part of the basement.

    My Monitor 60's and CS1 came in..

    Still waiting for the Monitor 30's as surround to come in.

    Everything I have so far is breaking in and sounding quite nice.

    Default In a smaller room the PSW110 may best be used as LFE for movies

    PSW110 puts out ample bass sounds when broken in, but I find that in a smaller room (e.g., 15 feet 3 inches wide x 11.5 feet between the front and rear walls x 8 feet ceiling height) the PSW110 ends up either overpowering the main speakers at higher amp dial volumes or else just doubles the bass of the main speakers at lower amp dial volumes. A little bit of an increase or decrease of the amp potentiometer makes a huge difference in the amount of bass output--I prefer to dial it in manually rather than calibrate it to a specific channel dBC level.

    Since I've found that the front mains I am using can actually output usable bass down to 30 Hz when not driven to a receiver's near maximum volume (and the PSW110 lower frequency limit is indicated as 32 Hz), I've opted to run the front speakers as large and then use the PSW110 as LFE for those really loud movie sound effects that are better reproduced using a subwoofer rather than the front mains.
    Main room speakers setup, 5.1 surround sound setup: Pioneer VSX-517K AV receiver, Polk Audio Monitor 40 Front speakers, Polk Audio CSM Center speaker, Polk Audio M10 Surround speakers, Polk Audio PSW110 Subwoofer.

    Secondary room, 2 channel stereo setup:
    Technics SA-GX170, KLH TW-09B.

    Computer, 2 channel stereo setup: Nata SL-200 Integrated Amplifier and Speaker System connected to a Soundblaster X-fi Xtreme Audio Soundcard.
