Very Impressed

Very impressed with the sub. Running 2 at 2 ohms taking 500 watts. They sound great out of the box. Have them in a small enclosure so the shallow profile helps. Expected them to have limited low end due to the shallow design but thats not the case. They take all the power we've thrown at them beyond what we would listen to on the regular. At high levels the sub keeps thumping out clear bass. Highly recommend.

More bass for your buck!!!

The old adage says, " you get what you pay for," but herein lies the exception to the rule. You get way more than what you pay for, and you pay a sticker price of $69 on average. The sub is two-fold, it's rated for marine use and audio as well. The durable cone makes it ideal for moving from one setup to another. In my opinion, the shallow cone is a benefit due to the many available dimensions in box sizes of your liking. For a middle-of-the-road sub, this Polk feels like your on par with the giants but not the giant prices. Highly recommended and it won't be long before your showing off the hard thumps to friends or maybe just upsetting the neighbors due to the family portrait constantly rattling off the mantle as you drive by slowly, immersed in a textual deep nod. Have the system bumping and you could win money betting others that audio mastery they feel rang up for less than $100. Open a new bank account, you're going to need a place to put all your winnings. The sound tribe dude abides!
