Klipsch KSW-10


Klipsch's Synergy Sub-10 is powerful

Amply endowed 10-inch subwoofer ; 200-watt amplifier (FTC rated) ; Versatile connectivity

The sonic match with its companion SLX speakers is far from seamless

We used the KSW-10 with a pair of Klipsch's new Synergy SLX satellite speakers. The SLXs sound great, but since they produce virtually no mid- or deep-bass on their own, they're totally dependent on the sub to flesh out the sound. The KSW-10 was mostly...

Quite happy with it.


I have bought two Subwoofers through NewEgg and admit its one of the better ones of the two. Though both are great, both have amazing sound quality.

Price, sound quality, look, and build quality ; I bought this Klipsch as my first of two 10" Subwoofer's ; The other one being a Polk Subwoofer. This Klipsch Sub sounds amazing, looks great, and has a great build. It is easy to hook up, and at higher...

In all honesty I've had this for around 2-3 years and have yet to find anything wrong, nor anything to complain about. Worth the price

Rich Deep Rad Bass


I bought it when it was on sale for 150$ best purchase I have made in a long time.

Huge Bass ; Kicking loud ; Beats my old 250$ sub ; Earth Shaking ; I absolutely love this sub, the overall quality of it, couldn't ask for much more

Auto-on/off feature needs a lot of bass to get it to turn on

I got this thing for my dorm at college, if you're like me and are a poor college kid, this sub is perfect. amazing power and sound for an amazing price.

Absolutely great clarity and power. This sub hits everything with great force as well as accuracy. For the cost, there isn't a better deal out there

I read the other cons and came to the conclusion that the standby option didn't work as well as hoped. Not a big deal for me because I just turn it off and on anyway

Best bang for the buck


Also got the BELKIN PURE AV AV20500-25 25 FT. Subwoofer Audio Cable. Used a good quality rca splitter I already had to plug into both L and R inputs of the sub.

I'm running a pair of b&w towers in stereo from a denon receiver. The sub is set to about 50hz with max volume. This sub really adds a lot of quality to the bass now and compliments my b&w's quite well ; I didn't expect much from a $200 sub but I have...

Had to play with the volume and crossover settings while taking the time to tune the sound. Initially I was disappointed in the sound at the default settings and only plugging into the L channel on the sub ; But, after adding the splitter and setting...

Don't expect it to last long


Great sound

Klipsch support is the worst. Bought this product about a month ago and it's already dead. No real rhyme or reason for why it died

Big enough, Loud enough


I almost bought one of the bigger Klipsch subs but I have been more than satisfied with the KSW-10. My wife already has me turn the volume down as it is so anything more would have just been a waste of money. Oh yah, and it looks great!

Great price and quality. I installed a 5.1 system in my new house using 5 ceiling speakers, the pioneer 1019 receiver, 55" Samsung Led tv and this sub for my living room setup. This sounds as good I could ask for. The sub makes all the rumbling base...

Not a big con but I will mention that the auto on works fairly well. It normally kicks on once the first loud enough bass hits it. Their have been occasions where we turn our system on and start watching a normal tv show and I have had to turn it on...

Product Specifications

The down-firing design of this Klipsch Subwoofer provides more "room-filling" bass. The high output subwoofer driver effectively couples, or grips, room air, dispersing the low frequency energy consistently throughout the room. This augments the haptic sensation and "feeling, " ensuring powerful bass performance. Santoprene rubber surround with fiber-composite cone delivers extended bass response and maximum reliability. Multiple hookup options accommodate any system configuration. It is easy to connect with LFE line level or speaker wire from any receiver or component separates. Phase and low pass filters are variable to optimize performance. LED light indicates power amplifier status.
