Piece of junk. My smaller cheaper 10" Polk PSW10 was better. Returned it because of the annoying hum and poor sound quality.
Found mine NIB on marketplace for 60. The hum is unbelievably annoying. It's now in storage in the basement until I decide what to do with it. I'd pass on it given what I know now even at $60.

The hum is likely a ground issue. Try a ground lift.

I just bought this, it's size is HUGE. Just a heads up, it's much bigger than I expected. Also rounded sides don't allow it to nest into the corner of a room neatly.

I bought two of these off CL for $80 and they've been decent. No hum. I push them very hard and they've held up well. These things are huge so keep that in mind. If you are on a budget I don't think you'll find something better for the price but you can get much better by spending a bit more

i wonder how can they make any money at all.
typical brand name speaker has mark up margin of about 6~10X (meaning about 15% of the MSRP is the actual component cost). this is only for the components and does not include engineering, designing or labor. a notable outlier was S.M.S.L Tabebuia speaker that has the component to MSRP margin of 40 to 50%, which is the highest in a branded speaker to the best of my knowledge.

so back to this. shipping a 40lb box is going to cost you 27 dollar in zone 1, and up to 95 dollar in zone 9. let's say monoprice get some amazing business shipping deal that shipping a 40lb box nationwide with free return for only 30 dollars. that leaves only 65 dollar for the actual product. this leaves about 10 dollar to 30 dollar in parts cost, say 20.
i honestly have no idea how they make a sub woofer for 20 dollar in parts.

Quote from SacMcNasty :
Dude!?!? Really?!?!?!

Even my 8inch Pioneer MK2 hits at least 37hz!
that's because pioneer likes to fool people who are easily fooled.
anything can produce sub 20 Hz wave (heck, i can wave my hand and produce 20 Hz wave). what matters is how loud it can make the sound at what frequency.

reputable companies follow the industry standard, provide -3 db (half) value and/or -6 db (quarter) value.

here is the actual CE-2010 measurement listed on the site.

80Hz 121.6dB
63Hz 119.6dB
50Hz 115.6dB
40Hz 109.9dB
32 Hz104.3dB
25 Hz 98.2dB
20 Hz90.3dB

https://www.monoprice.com/product...4c0a1c0e10


and here is your sub woofer following the same CE-2010 measurement, based on https://hometheaterreview.com/the...he-meters/
63 Hz: 114.2
50 Hz: 113.8
40 Hz: 107.0
32 Hz: 102.8
25 Hz: 87.4
20 Hz: NA

to put in human term, at 63Hz, this sub is twice as powerful as yours, at 32-50hz this sub is 60% more powerful, at 25 Hz this sub is 4 times more powerful than yours.

How's PSW10? Do you recommend or want me go for a bigger one? I want to add it to Wharfedale Diamonds 11.2.

Quote from SacMcNasty :
I don't doubt any of this. But this "sub" is a joke. Now...since I own and use two JBL 560p's that aren't a joke...I can easily state that they destroy this POS at less than double the cost despite being rarer than a Unicorn to find.

This POS Monoprice sub was not made to last with questionable parts and shotty CS.

I mean really dude!?!?!?
A 12inch sub with a 150watf amp?

Lol!
I dont see how your comment helps anyone looking for a brand new sub for around $100. All your comment does is inflate your ego.

I bought one of these early in 2020 but sounded muddy and awful so I submitted a warranty request. The refurbished replacement I received sounds fantastic, luckily getting the replacement was free. I will eventually buy another one and check sound quality as well in case there's a known defect.
