Hi everyone,
I'm setting up a new home theater, my question is regarding subwoofers. I have polk 660wi (i got it for 300 bucks, i know most ppl dont recomend it) and polk psw111 subwoofer.

Should i use both as a dual subwoofer setup in my home theater, would it be a big mis match. or just use the polk 660wi and add another 660wi if i need it.
the setup is mostly for movies...20% music. I dont really play loud, so Im assuming it wont be a big problem. Let me know what you guys think, thanx for the advice.

Try using both subs.

Klipsch RF 7 based HT 7.4, Pioneer SC 35, Acurus Five 200 amp, Chase SS 18.2(2), VS 18.1(2), Samsung BDP F 7500, Asus/My Book Live HPC 4 TB

Yaquin VK 2100 amp, McIntosh XR 5 speakers, Samsung BDP F 7500

Well, the 660wi will definitely out perform the PSW111 - the PSW111 will hit it's limits way before the 660wi will. I wouldn't recommend using them together unless you only use the PSW111 for a little "foundation" by turning down it's gain at least 10db in relation to the other sub and placing it near your MLP. The benefits from this will probably be negligible, but hard to know for sure unless you use measuring software (a must for properly integrating multiple subs).

You'd be much better off with two identical subwoofers if you can.
