A short review.
I know most discussions seem to be about the bigger units but, I have been listening and fine tuning a PSW111 for 3 weeks now. That's an 8" geared towards small sats and soundbars. It took a while to break in and to find the sweet spot for the unit and I was intentionally matching it to a Polk Audio TL250 package for TV viewing in a small family room. OK, so I was pleasantly surprised by that combination.
However, I hooked up my old Paradigm 5 SEv3 fronts, cc-170 center and Titans in the back just to see how that would work with this small sub. The center was somewhat weak, not really the sub. Oh and the wife hates the appearance of the Titans:rolleyes:
For music, the PSW111 is surprisingly good, almost seamless even through a drum solo it rolled in and out with great definition. The SE fronts have 8" woofers so I did not expect that. The Saving Private Ryan opening beach scene I thought would show the weakness but it still held up well. Not the ground shaking from something like my old Paradigm 12" down in the 26khz range but much better than I expected to get. I think it has a lot of power for an 8" and certainly sounded better than the PSW10 that is nearly out the door. Cranking up the gain did not show it getting flabby or huffing and still held good definition.
For now, it's a keeper, although I am working on a gear swap for a Paradigm Center 2 and a Definitive 10" sub. If that happens I may have to explore in-ceiling speakers for the surrounds.
