Polk Audio DSWmicroPro Series 8" Subwoofer-DSW1000

Polk Audio DSWmicroPro Series 8" Subwoofer with Klippel distortion analyzer and dynamic balance technology


In the DSWmicroPRO1000, you’ll find most of the superior technology found in the other DSWmicroPRO models, with a couple of small exceptions that we promise won’t impact your end result: The biggest bang for your bass buck. 1200 Watts of clean, floor-shaking continuous power from an intelligent amplifier moves the resonance-free 8-inch woofer in addition to the downward-firing 8x8-inch quadrilateral bass radiator. Klippel analysis ensures smooth motor movement even at extreme volume levels, and Dynamic Balance® tuning ensures smooth-blending, distortion-free performance for movie, gaming and music. Enjoy 100% of the famed deep, musical Polk  bass from this “no frills” (har!) DSWmicroPRO model!
Feed Forward Distortion Suppression Technology 
  • Knows in advance how the woofer’s acoustic system will respond to the output signal from the amplifier, and stops signals that could cause distortion or damage before they even get to the driver, for the biggest possible bass response with the least distortion or risk of damage.
The Polk Room Optimizer™ (PRO) 
  • Gives you four preset “room optimizers” to choose from, allowing you to program in the optimal bass and blending setting for your specific room.
Heavy Duty MDF Enclosures 
  • Designed and engineered for perfect volume, minutely tuned for distortion-free low frequencies, and internally braced and damped to eliminate internal standing waves and other performance-robbing resonances.
Furniture-Grade Piano Gloss Black 
  • Finish matches today’s high tech TVs, furniture and speakers. (Matte finish on DSWmicroPRO1000.)
State-Of-The-Art Klippel Distortion Analysis 
  • Clears the path for instantaneous dynamic response by optimizing the woofer’s motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension for smooth, unimpeded movement over a broad spectrum of the lower frequencies, even at extreme listening levels.
Polk’s Proprietary, Patented Dynamic Balance Technology 
  • Allows our engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds.
  • More rigid under fire than any stamped steel, Polk’s cast aluminum baskets will never flex, even at extreme listening levels. Specially designed side vents encourage air circulation, keeping the voice coil cooler and more efficient.
The Unique Shape Of The Inverted Dust Cap 
  • Provides extreme stiffness, while the lightweight cone material ensures fast response and effortless movement. Extra rigidity is achieved by attaching the drive mechanism via the ABS cone coupler.
Durable Rubber Surrounds 
  • Allow incredible “travel,” and won’t break down even after relentless pounding.
