High Value, High Performance
The "no frills" version of the microPRO 2000, microPRO 1000 does not have AutoPRO, 12 volt trigger input or a glossy finish. But it keeps 100% of the sound quality and performance, including the 1200 watt amplifier, 8" woofer and 8" x 8" quadrilateral bass radiator. You'll be amazed of the quality of bass from this virtually invisible cube.8-inch driver
In combination with the blue status LED, the remote control allows you to adjust your subwoofer without getting up from your seat. The 4 way phase selector allows easy blending to your main speakers. It also gives you full control of PRO Room correcting features.
Blue Status LED
Provides you useful feedback when adjusting settings on your subwoofer. The blue light matches today's high tech electronics and can be turned off.
Yes, we realize your DSW Series sub has the colossal power to wake the house and neighbors. That's why we provide Night Mode so the subwoofer operates at less intensity.
Multiple Hook Up Options
LFE, line level inputs and outputs and 5 way binding posts for speaker level inputs allows easy connection to any system.
Intelligent Digital Amplifier
DSW Series subwoofers use intelligent digital amplifiers. This means, not only can they put gobs of power to your woofer, they'll use very little power at low volumes or standby mode.
Feed Forward? Anti-Distortion Technology
Turn any speaker or subwoofer too loud and it'll distort. Instead of using an unintelligent, performance limiting "brick wall" limiter or an antiquated servo feedback system that reduces distortion after it's already occurred, Feed Forward addresses distortion head-on before it happens while maximizing bass response. The result is bulletproof reliability with ultra-pure performance. Click here for a technical explanation.
Klippel Optimized Woofer
By using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analyzer, Polk engineers were able to optimize the woofer's motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension bringing you the best possible performance even at extreme listening levels. Click here for a technical explanation.
Offer maximum radiating area over a traditional circular design. This is the magic behind the subwoofer's ability to play loud and low, while maintaining a compact size. For a more detailed explanation on the science behind fluid coupled radiators
Woofer Design & Technology
The robust woofer is the powerhouse behind DSW microPRO subwoofers and borrows a host of innovative technology from our top of the line Signature Reference Mobile Series.
Basket is cast aluminum instead of inferior stamped steel as seen from other companies. What this means for you is an extremely rigid frame that will not flex when handling the 1200 watt amplifier. Special vents in the basket allow air circulation to keep the voice coil cool.
Inverted dust cap and surround- unique shape with reinforcement provide extreme stiffness. The cone matches the finish of the cabinet and eliminates the need for any grille. Gloss black for the 4000, 3000, 2000 and black satin for the microPRO 1000. For further cone rigidity, attached to the woofer's drive mechanism via 4.5" diameter ABS Cone coupler.
Double stacked magnets give the woofer incredible power, maximizing the magnetic strength of the woofer's drive mechanism.
Surround & Spiders
Inverted rubber surround controls the woofer and allows incredible travel and will not break down, even after relentless pounding. Dual spiders on both the woofer AND passive radiator allow linear woofer control even at maximum volumes.
Automatic Polk Room Optimizer (AutoPRO)
Many new receivers now come with automatic setup microphones making setup a snap, so why can't your subwoofer? You can now. AutoPRO uses a microphone to take actual samples of the performance in your room and adjust accordingly to smoothen out the response. Since every room is different, AutoPRO takes the guesswork out of optimizing your subwoofer. In combination with PRO, we'll bring the best possible performance out of your system.
1200 Watt Advanced Digital Amplifier
Allows for high efficiency, bullet proof reliability and minimal heat generation. Each model has 1200 watts of continuous power on tap and 2400 peak! Think that maybe too much power? No problem, use the handy remote and turn it down. But at idle, the intelligent amplifier barely draws any power.
