Explosive performance for movies and music

Have a big room? Have the need for BIG, life-like bass impact? Then the PSW505 is the subwoofer for you. More than a mere brute, the PSW505 is equally at home reproducing all the subtle nuance of a plucked string bass as it is belting out a rocke's roar. Full-featured and over-powered, the PSW505 will rock your world and tick off your neighbors.

PSW505 Features

  • Real wood veneer finish
  • Slot Load Venting improves bass response. The wide, long Slot Load Vent dramatically lessens turbulence, noise and distortion, pouring out a tidal wave of precise, thunderous bass!
  • Polk subs sound better because they're built better. Rock-solid MDF construction (including a 1 inch thick front baffle) suppresses enclosure panel resonance for distortion-free, accurate response.
  • Big 12 inch Long Throw Driver for longer excursion and better linearity.
  • Huge Hi-Roll Surrounds that support their longer excursion.
  • Most powered subwoofers are good for just gut-rumble and boom. Polk understands that you listen to music too so our subs are tight, precise and accurate.
  • High current 300 Watt Continuous (460 Watt Dynamic) power amplifier.
  • Adjustable low pass crossover, phase switch and volume control allows perfect blending with any main speaker.
  • Auto on/off circuit that automatically turns your subwoofer on when it senses a program signal. When no signal is present, the amplifier turns off within 15 minutes
  • Unfiltered LFE input for use with low pass filtered subwoofer output jacks
  • Pro-grade 5-way binding posts speaker inputs and outputs.
  • Magnetically shielded for safe, flexible placement next to a TV or video monitor.
