I was looking at the DSW pro4000 too but everyone seems to be against Polk. Just curious, has anyone reading this thread done an A/B between a higher end Polk sub vs. Empire, HSU, SVS, etc? From what I'm gathering, many larger companies (though I can remember the day when Polks were made 5 miles up the street from my current home) that make multiple lines run the risk of spoiling their reputation because people often hear the lower end junk and then dismiss the entire brand.
What I liked on the Polk DSWpro4000 was a.) small size high WAF, and b.) the Polk room optimizer. The room EQ w/mic seems like a good idea for dialing in the sub. I'd venture to guess a properly dialed in smaller sub would best in many ways a giant poorly setup sub. With that said, I know zero about how good/bad the Polk sub EQ actually works and I'm sure an Avia DVD and SPL meter would be a better solution, or even the Audessy system maybe?
Has anyone listened to the Polk DSWpro4000 in person in home?
