    Need a subwoofer that will last

    So need a new subwoofer for HT system.

    Use maybe 2 hours a week. But have only been getting 4 to 5 years out of the polk ones. Is this normal.

    Current one that stopped working is a Polk psw111 which is a 8".
    Last one was same brand but a larger model.
    A 8 " does all I want it to do for the occasional movie. And smaller the better for looks.

    Is polk subs dependable as anyother brand. 15 years and never a problem with the center, fronts or rear speakers.

    Thanks

    Try to check out RSL Speedwoofer. It is a decent subwoofer and not pricey.

    Velodyne or SVS, I have owned both. The Velodyne, a 12" I gave to my son, he is still using it, darn thing is twenty years old! If not older! And I know what you mean about the Folks, they rarely last, and are not the best bang for the buck. Much better picks out there.

    Please tell me your budget range, because no one suggests you without your exact budget, well anyways I suggest you to once check on the promo code for free, if your budget range is $200 or more, there are much varieties of subwoofer you will need to explore a lil bit.

    I've had good luck with Velodyne (knock on wood) as far as reliability goes. I have a microvee and a Spl-1500R that have been kicking for years. Subwoofer plate amps no matter which vendor are hit and miss sometimes though.

    I would personally and definitely recommend JBL LSR310S 10″! We have been using it for a couple of months and it's 11/10. Hahaha! Well for a much more convenient one, you should try Sonos SUB Wireless Subwoofer with Integrated SONOSNet 2.0 Extender (Gloss White). It is wireless and it has a superb convenience guarantee! It's the best, check it out!

    I have had a HSU STF-2 that HSU probably does not even sell anymore since 2011. And now that I have their VTF3-MK5 I moved the STF-2 to my home office. In other words HSU makes excellent subwoofers that last a long time!!

    I currently have a Sony SA-W3000 (12" 180 watt) powered subwoofer. I've had it for about 5 years now & it's still going strong. You cannot buy them new anymore though as that model has been discontinued.
    I had a JVC powered sub back in the day & ran it for about 7 years till the woofer itself wore slap out. Amp is still good in it though.
    Depending on your budget, I know the sub I want to try is the new JL Audio Dominion d110
    It retails at about $1,100, has a 10" driver & is powered by a class D amplifier rated at 750 watts peak. It has awesome reviews & JL Audio is one of the very best subwoofer manufacturers out there.
    That's definitely the next powered subwoofer I want to buy!
