    The Polk PSW505 utilizes a shielded 12-inch high-excursion polymer-composite cone with hi-roll surround driver for tight musical bass, as well as slot-load venting that further improves bass response by dramatically lessening turbulence, noise and distortion. This unit's rock-solid MDF enclosure construction with one-inch-thick front baffle suppresses enclosure panel resonance for an even more distortion-free, accurate response.
    The PSW505 includes an unfiltered LFE input for use with low-pass filtered subwoofer output jacks, and pro-grade five-way binding post speaker inputs and outputs. This unit features an on/off circuit that automatically turns your subwoofer on when it senses a program signal, and shuts it off within 15 minutes after no signal is present. The PSW505 also features an adjustable low-pass crossover, phase switch and volume control that allows perfect blending with any main speaker, and magnetic shielding for safe placement near TVs and video monitors without causing video distortion. Full-featured and over-powered, the Polk Monitor PSW505 has a sleek, black real-wood veneer finish and is a great introduction to high-performance sound.
