Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Matched Amplifier: The CSW100 requires and is designed
to only be used with the Polk SWA500 Subwoofer amplifier (107SWA500, sold separately).
The SWA500 comes with a SPEX Card that configures the EQ, crossover, and power
control circuitry to match the CSW100 subwoofer.
Woofer: The CSW100 features a long-throw 10" fiber
cone woofer with a rubber surround.
Enclosure Construction: The CSW100 has rigidly braced MDF
enclosure construction for low resonance and rattle-free performance.
Slot Vent: The enclosure features an integrated slot vent
for deep, driving bass.
Grille: The CSW100 is designed to fire through an opening
in the floor or ceiling. Once the installation is complete, the opening can be
covered with an optional grille. The CSW100 comes with a 4.5" x 14 "
grille that looks like an air vent.
Spring Posts: The CSW100 subwoofer has one set of spring
post terminals that will accept pin connectors and bare wire.
Mounting Location: The CSW100 is designed to be mounted
between floor or ceiling joists. The CSW100 can fit between the tighter
joist-spacing of QuietFloor or wooden I-Beam construction. The subwoofer
requires a joist spacing of at least 13" and a depth of 9". The
overall length of the subwoofer is 26.25".
Mounting Brackets: The supplied brackets and wood screws
allow you to mount the CSW100 to any parallel floor or ceiling joists.
Isolation Pads: When the enclosure is installed, it fits
snugly against one of the floor or ceiling joists. To prevent rattling, two of
the isolation pads should be installed between the enclosure and the joist,
while the other three isolation pads should be placed on the front panel of
