Full-featured powered subwoofer with dual 10 inch drivers and patented Power Port technology.
Explosive Performance For Movies And Music
If you're looking for clean, high output bass in your mid-sized to large room (and who isn't?), this is the perfect powered subwoofer for you. Its massive dual 10" drivers pound with nearly 50% more surface area than a single 12" driver. The PSW650 delivers all the power and gut-rumble you expect from a home theater sub, and is also fully capable of conveying all the depth and musicality of a plucked string bass. Quite nicely, we might add. It also gives you the control you crave. Its volume, crossover frequency and phase controls allow you to fine tune it to match your room, and your taste. And the inclusion of both line level and speaker level inputs allow easy hook-up to any system.
- Two 10 inch direct radiating subwoofer drivers -- nearly 50% more surface area than a single 12" driver -- for deep bass, smooth response and low distortion
- Dual Power Port bass ports for deep bass and high acoustic efficiency with low distortion
- High current power amplifier (165 Watts Continuous, 250 Watts Dynamic)
- Subwoofer volume control, variable crossover control and phase switch allow you to optimize performance to match your audio system, room acoustics, and program material
- 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
- +3dB bass boost switch provides increased output when connected to electronics with low output subwoofer output jacks
- Unfiltered LFE input for use with low pass filtered subwoofer output jacks
- Speaker and line level inputs
- 80Hz High-pass filter on both line level and speaker level outputs

"...this is one great little inexpensive subwoofer...the PSW 650 did an excellent job with music and really came alive in the theatre where I never did get it to say "uncle!"

etown.com, June 1999
"Oh yes, the PSW650 is certainly capable of pumping out mass quantities of low-frequency energy. It can, when overdriven by its owner, rattle your teeth as well as your room. And yet, when properly tuned, the 650 is also capable of seamless integration with one's main speakers and of a remarkable degree of musical accuracy."
"The Polk PSW650 proved to be something of a revelation to me. I didn't expect it to be as tuneful or as satisfying as it proved to be. Given all that it offers for $699, this has got to be one of audio's best values (but be careful, you may find yourself feeling a sudden urge to indulge your, er, baser instincts)."
StereoTimes.com, May 2000
"When it comes to home theater applications, the PSW650 rises to the occasion. This is one powerful subwoofer. It adds a foundation of deep bass to movies that you can feel. The PSW650 brought my home theater to life."

Widescreen Review Subwoofer Buyers Guide Fall/Winter 2000
"The Polk PSW650 is a great-looking, great-performing powered subwoofer that costs less than $800. It rivals the performance of the best home theatre subs and is among the better vented subwoofers for music reproduction, too. If your budget for a subwoofer is under a thousand bucks, this one should be at the top of your short list. It's a darn good subwoofer and an excellent value."
"...an attractively priced subwoofer than can certainly hold its own against much more expensive units." A "Best Buy."

"The PSW650 is flat-out the most impressive subwoofer I've ever auditioned, whether for home theater or music. It's so powerful in its reproduction of bottom-end special effects, it could probably stun a terrier at 10 yards, yet it's capable of producing tight, tuneful music when Paul Chambers walks his acoustic bass behind a Coltrane solo.
Not that the LSi15s aren't capable of deep, solid bass. They are. But reinforced by the PSW650, they reproduce a bottom end you could crack an egg on. I mean solid!"
