                I own 2 of these subs. No bottom end without excessive port noise, actually not much bottom end period. If you are thinking about buying this sub, DONT. Save your money until you can get something better, or buy something different around the same price point. I will be replacing these subs as soon as the wife will let me. Stay far away, no matter how cheap it is. I regret buying these subs, un-listenable at high volume levels, your ears will thank you if you do not buy this sub. STAY FAR AWAY ...

                  Based on the single review of this subwoofer, I had to jump in here and say something. I bought this subwoofer based on 527 reviews on Amazon and never found a single negative comment that would lead me to "Stay FAR away" confused.gif

                    With over 700 mostly five star reviews and huge discount for discontinued product listed on one of most popular online merchant store, I was sure I can't go wrong with PSW505. But I was. If you never had any sub before, this probably will meet your expectations as for less than $200 you get massive heavy well built cube able to shake your room well. But is it all what defines decent sub sound quality? Certainly not.

                    First of all, this sub must have really poor amplifier/supply design as...

                      Let me start by saying I'm not a audiophile, with that being said, this sub rocks. I came from a Onkyo HTIB subwoofer which it sucked, I didn't realize what I was missing until this sub came in, again not a audiophile, but I do love bass. My sub is already broken into meaning I had it playing for more than 20 hrs, and it sounds great deep low and loud bass. It shakes my whole house. My living room is 12x18 not big or huge. I was going to buy a Klipsch RW12D glad I didn't some may say the klipsc...
