I have a complete Polk system:
RTi8's for mains
CSi5 for the center
RC55i's for the surrounds
As you can see, the PSW10 is a few grades below the RTi line. It's brand new. I bought it three months ago for my living room renovation.
Just tonight, I hooked it up.
Not a fan.
It definitely puts out something, but it's not what I want to hear. It sounds "woofy" and "boxy." I loathe that midrangey type sound. I actually turned the x-over as low as it would go, and lowered the volume after a little while. It bothered me that much. It sounded very separate from the rest of the system - there was no smooth transition to the bass frequency.
Anything I can do short of buying a new sub?
I'm good with woodworking, so building my own is not at all out of the question.
