Why add a powered subwoofer?

A powered subwoofer gives you bass you can feel as well as hear. Our customers love the depth and impact their subs add to music and movies. We hear comments like "it brings out sounds I didn't know existed in discs I've watched a million times." Powered subwoofers aren't just for big bass that rattles your picture frames; they can also deliver tight, accurate lows. If you haven't shopped for a powered sub in a while, you might be surprised at how small they get. Look for an ultra-compact model if you want to tuck your sub away under an end table or in a corner.

GARBAGE>>>dont buy it but if you do here is how to fix it

Written By GARBAGE owner, Seattle WA on Thursday, December 13, 2012

Its a 3 star when it works. Its zero the other two times the thing has blown the two voltage regulators the power supply pcba. So here is my experience. Had it for just under two years and 2 voltage regulators overheated and burned. Crutchfield sent a replacement power supply since still under warranty which fixed it. It took 9 months for the same to voltage regulators to blow. I use it for ordinary surround sound use. Not loud, nothing crazy so there is an obvious design issue. The 2nd time it failed, I read the reviews and saw that everyone else was having the same issue. I got online and downloaded the shematic and ordered the two voltage regulators that burned up, for get this $0.76 each and because I am an engineer and have access to the soldering station replaced the two components, and then fabricated two aluminum heat sinks and screwed them to the back of the replaced voltage regulators and off we go. I have been running it for two weeks and so far so good. The reality is The subwoofer has a fundamental design issue and the heat sinks I added should dissipate enough heat to lower the temperature on the voltage regulators enough to prevent this in the future. If you are one of the many who have fell victim to a poor product like this, ask your Electrical engineer buddy for help on this one. It takes about 10 minutes to repair. Best thing was Crutchfield asking me to buy another. I was like you heard me say its already failed twice right?

Pros: sounds good when it is working before it burns up every 9-24 months.

Cons: Obvious design flaw that infinity should have taken care of.

Don't Buy It II

Written By SJ, Owensboro,Ky. on Sunday, December 09, 2012

Fried after two or three years, can't remember exactly. I had it repaired, it lasted another year, fried again! Junk, Crutchfield should stop selling this model if they want to maintain their excellent reputation for quality.

Dont Buy It!

Written By Sandman, Chambersburg, PA on Monday, November 19, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Don't waste your money! It sounds great until the amplifier fries. Had mine for abou 3-1/2 years; very light usage. One day the sub started "cracking" while watching a movie. Took out the amp (completely unventilated); obvious heat damage on the circuit board. Started searching on Google...numerous posts with the same problem. They give a lousy warranty of 2 or 3 years on the amp and that's what craps out. It makes no sense to send it back for a $100-$200 repair and have the same amp fry again in 3 or 4 years because of poor design.

Good Sub When it Works

Written By James, San Diego, CA on Thursday, September 27, 2012

Owned it now for about 4 years with light use and volume never turned up past half on the sub. Had to get it repaired the first time about 18 months ago. Now it has started making a chirping noise for about the first minute it's turned on. I suggest purchasing a different sub.

Pros: Good sound

Cons: Doesn't last

Doesn't last

Written By stoli147, Seattle, WA on Wednesday, August 08, 2012

It worked for just long enough to be out of the two year electronics warranty period. Talk about engineering just long enough, but no longer. The amp overheats and takes out some vital components. By comparison, I have a Revel subwoofer based of the Infinity Beta series and it is still running strong after 8 years, used everyday. This one was used about every other day for just over two years and quit. Now the Revel did cost 2x this one, but now I have to replace this one anyway and I'll likely spend the 2x cost overall to get another decent sub. Mine does the same input light stays red and flickers green when there is a signal.

Pros: Sounds good for the money.

Cons: Electronics are crap inside.

this item is downright horrible. its sounds great but in the long run its no good. i couldnt listen to anything for more than 5 minutes without it cutting out and overheating on me and my volume level was only turned up 1/4 of the way. i will never buy another infinity product again.

Pros: sounds GREAT

Cons: overheats quickly

It was good until it died

Written By Hiram, Staten Island NY on Sunday, October 30, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had purchased this sub about three years ago and it sounded superb. I never used it at full power, always at half or less. As i have been reading in other reviews it seems to have a problem with the amplifier. Mine does the same thing as all the reviews i read the standby light goes red and green constantly. I feel infinity should have all of their subs recalled because it seems to be a common problem with them. BUYER BEWARE!!

Sounded great until it died

Written By Jason S, Jasonville, IN on Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'll start with the positive. The sub sounds great paired with the Infinity 362's, 252's and 350 center ran by an Onkyo receiver. The problem began a month ago when the sub stopped working. Same problem as the other reviews, blinking standby light. Called Crutchfield tech support and had a new amp on the way in about 10 minutes, very easy to deal with. Other companies need to take a lesson from them.

Got the amp replaced and sub is working good again, hopefully it lasts. I wasn't expecting death in a year and a half out of Infinity but it seems to be a common theme. And for the record, the level was never set above 50% so it wasn't being pushed too hard. Hopefully this amp lasts longer.

3 Strikes and Out

Written By Jim A., Salisbury, MD on Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had this sub for 3 years and it just quit for the 3rd time. I had it repaired twice previously for burned out circuit board. This time it started making loud popping sounds, even when no input was connected. Since it is now out of warranty I purchased a new sub - NOT Infinity!

It was good while it lasted!

Written By Ed M., Red Lion, PA on Monday, July 11, 2011

I have owned this sub for three years & 4 months. 4 months ago it was out of warranty for the electronics. About a month ago it quit working, never comes out of standby. This is the second one I've owned. The first one wouldn't go into standby. After a month at the Infinity service center that Infinity suggested, I gave up & got it back with no repairs. They couldn't tell me when they would get to it. I sent it to Infinity in GA. at my expense and received this one. I now have an expensive worthless sub-woofer. I don't want to fix it as I feel it will just break again. I'm going to buy another sub & guess which kind it WON'T be.

Read the manual

Written By Drumman, Cave City, KY on Wednesday, June 29, 2011

I am the second owner of this subwoofer, and after writing this review mine may die also, but I felt after reading all the negative I would put in some positive to this subwoofer. Also if I offend anyone i am sorry, but through my years of audio experience with helping people set-up home theater systems to my own messing around with electronics (audio included) there is a big misconception about volume and power, most people think that a subwoofer has to be turned wide open on the volume (not true) this subwoofer I am using is about 5 years old now and still serves me well with the sub volume turned up half way, and then I use the reciever to balance out all the audio from the other speakers, so those of you that are blowing the amps on these subwoofers need to read the manual it tells you to start out with the volume at half-way and then set you frequency to make up the difference of the main speakers. A power amp can only do so much then after that it gives up and dies, so try the balance approach and see if it doesn`t work, it has for me for a few years now, and when I see an explosion on the screen my butt vibrates so I think it is doing its job pretty well.

The Goodness doesn't last

Written By Dave, El Paso, TX on Sunday, June 26, 2011

Like the others that have complained about the two year problem, the woofer popped, then quit. Since I am a technician, I opened the panel to look for a fuse..found it, but also found that the transformer and other parts of the circuit board smoked. What gives with this model woofer? I am disappointed Crutchfield rates is so high.

Another Disappointed Customer

Written By Jay, San Juan, PR on Thursday, June 16, 2011

I also purchase this subwoofer 2years ago and today it died on me. As noted with the previous buyers, standby light began blinking and the back area of the unit where the amp is located a clicking sounds was noted. Speaker will turn on but no output. The unit was use probably once or twice a month to watch movies or a live concert.

Short Life

Written By Samuel, Stockbridge,Ga on Monday, June 13, 2011

This sub worked well for 2 years. I only used it for movies in a small room. The bass was perfect for the size of the room it was in.The standby light began blinking and the sub started making making clicking sounds and it finally died. Reading other reviews this seems to be the consistant problem with this sub. Its not a bad sub for the money but I wouldn't recommend it because of the short life span.

Didn't last...

Written By Greg, St. Louis, MO on Thursday, June 09, 2011

I agree with Jake. Mine did not get a lot of use either, and it definitely was never abused. I don't like an overload of bass, just a nice kick. Yet, it began to pop and crackle. I thought Infinity meant quality. I guess not.

The sub sound good, but I need another one when I play music. It doen't have
Hi Level inputs, so I had to use a car audio Hi to Low level converter to get it to
work. It is great with movies! I going to get one more to give it more fill when
playing music. Beside that it is a good sub!

Great sub, until it died!

Written By Jake, Pierce, Id on Saturday, April 09, 2011

This sub performed well with our system and it sounded great. We used it for
watching TV and Movies with occasional music but not really any hard use. In
our small room it put out really impressive base. Then, after about two years it
started turning off and on with a popping sound and eventually it just quit. For
the money I hoped that it would have lasted longer than that. After researching
it a little it looks like this is a regular problem with these subs.

Great for music

Written By David, Montgomery,AL on Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered this sub last august and its performance is ok for music. Not a good choice for movies. If your main focus is home theater then step up to the ps212. The ps210 just can't handle heavy output such as in the movie war of the worlds . I use this movie to evaluate all my subs in my household. I hope this helps.

So far so good

Written By JJ, Guelph, Ontario on Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Only running it at 50% output. More than enough power, but also able to operate
at low volume. Very accurate and tight, and produces very low frequencies with
ease. I have extended warranty, but hopefully I won't need it.

Powerful Subwolfer

Written By Steve H., Rock Island, Illinois on Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this subwolfer to go with a pair of Infinity 362 and a pair of 162s in a
room about 30 x 20. Although the 362s put out quite a bit of base themselves, it
was too much to expect for them to cover the fairly large room and I was finding
that toward the back of the room (where the 162s were) there was insuffient
base. This subwolfer resolved the issue. The system now sounds very good
thoughout the room. The sub is very powerful - it feels more like at 12 than a 10.
I use my system most for music rather and it seems to have more than enough
base for that use. I haven't used the base in the home theater yet so I haven't
had the chance to see whether it achieves the really deep lows needed for home
theater. Although Crutchfield cautioned me that it might not reach the really deep
lows, it seems like it will to me. No power outages or other mishaps with the
equipment. Assuming that this doesn't suffer the outages other people have
suffered I would say this is a very good sub for the price. Crutchfield folks were
great to work with, as ususal.

Great sub until in died

Written By Donnie B, Cincinnati Ohio on Saturday, February 19, 2011

This unit was awesome until it died. Reading up on the issue, i guess it was a fairly
common issue. They put a 2 year warranty on the amp for a reason. Mine start making a
clicking noise and then nothing after just 2 years. I'll never buy an infinity component

Quit after two years of light use

Written By Ken, Arkansas on Friday, February 04, 2011

I was happy with this sub-woofer until the amplifier quit after a little over two
years of moderate use. I searched the web and found that this failure seems to
be common for this speaker.

Killer Sub

Written By CheapTechie, Corpus Christi, TX on Sunday, January 23, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've owned this sub for about a year now, and continue to love it.

My wife and I have been rewatching movies and breaking out all our old music
(even still) just to listen to the for the first time through this amazing bass.

It hits frequencies that just boggle the mind. It does not bottom out, although
I don't really try to disrupt the peace in the neighborhood, but we have thrown
some disgusting low frequencies at it with different movie scenes and different
music artists that would cause average subs to distort or bottom out. It's
amazing to hear everything at full force the way it was meant to be heard.

Very crisp punch, even in the lowest ranges, and it really complements my entire
system as a whole. I would definitely recommend this sub to a friend.

Sounds good before it went out...

Written By DavidH, Tomball, TX on Saturday, November 27, 2010

The subwoofer sounded great. For a 10 inch would rattle the house. Barely
use it though...just for movies. Then a couple months ago, it just quit. Seems like the
components that measure the incoming signal burned up. This much $...shot for a speaker
that rarely gets used. I wish either Crutchfield or Infinite would at least send me parts for
a speaker that I rarely used since evidently, they go out quite a bit.


Written By Alan, Gaithersburg, MD on Wednesday, November 24, 2010

I had mine 4 years until it began cycling in and out of Standby mode
repeatedly. The subwoofer is supposed to stay on for 10 minutes, then go on
standby. This is accompanied by an annoying clicking sound when cycling occurs.
I called Infinity customer service and did not find them very helpful except to
provide me a copy of the service bulletin and troubleshooting tips/solution.
The closest authorized repair shop is inconvenient and am debating whether to
try fixing myself or pay the outrageous repair costs. I was happy until now
with this unit!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Originally had a JBL 8" sub for several years that finally gave up. Purchased the Infinity
PS210 about 3 weeks ago for the replacement and have been very pleased with the
performance and sound from this box. With the adjustable freq and volume you can "fine
tune" the freq and level for different genre of music, movies, etc. And....... once you have it
dialed in and you start to "crank it up" the subwoofer really performs. The whole house
really thumps from 60% volume and up (Stereo is a 12 year old Pioneer 100W system).
The subwoofer really complements the 10 plus year old Bose 301 front speakers and JBL
center channel speaker. That is it, these 3 speakers and the sub. With this sub and the
sounds from Bose the sound is just as good if not better than current (new) systems out
there today. If you are looking for a powered subwoofer purchase this one. You will not be

Just "OK" subwoofer

Written By Andrew_O, Charlotte, NC on Thursday, August 26, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Tried this subwoofer with my 135W receiver in a large family room. It is very
powerful...shakes the house no doubt. I dont think its crisp, though. sounds like it fires
early and continues to reverberate after it should stop. There's also a low-level
humming sound at times during heavy bass scenes on movies. I'd give it 5 stars on
power, but 2 stars on clarity and crispness which i think is equally if not more important.
I sent it back and paid the extra dollars for velodyne and have found much better clarity
and crispness, but may need to go up further to get the power that this infinity had.

Should only receive 5 stars

Written By Brian, North Port, Florida on Thursday, September 17, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently received this sub to go with my Onkyo TX SR706 receiver, and Energy Take classic speakers. I had the Take Classic sub woofer that came with the system which I thought was very good, but I am a guy, so I had to have bigger and better, so I ordered the Infinity. It is so awesome I can't believe I am on the computer right now instead of watching a movie on the home theater. I have the sub in a large room, and it will shake the room no problem, actually it will shake the whole house, and possibly your cars in the drive way! But, not only is it loud, it is super clean! It is not even broken in yet, and I have probably pushed it a little too much, and I have not heard the slightest bit of distortion! Really awesome sub especially for the money, BUY ONE!!!!!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great sounding sub. The bass is very tight and controlled. It has a small profile and looks great with the grill on or off. It really adds a refined depth to music and movies. Not boomy at all. I have done side by side comparisons with comparable Polk (PSW111)and Klipsche (Synergy Sub-10) subwoofers and I much prefer the Infinity sound.


Written By craig, Yuba City, CA on Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this Infinity to replace a 100 watt RMS Velodyne sub. The Velodyne was only a year old, but I wanted more bass out of my music so I purchased the Infinity. Unfortunately what I found was the performance seemed to match the Velodyne. With the Infinity turned up three quarters of the way (same as the Velodyne), the bass output was disappointing and not what I expected from 300 watts, especially when it's producing what sounds the same as 100 watts. I honestly think something is wrong with it, but I spoke to two separate techs at Crutchfield who disagreed and thought that I may have expected more than what i got. If that's the case, save your money and buy a Velodyne. I have two of them, but the comparison with the Infinity was only done with one of the Velodynes. I usually make online purchases based on ratings, but this sub only had one rating so I took a chance. I guess my expectations were too high. I have sent the sub back to Crutchfield. I wish they could actually test it and let me know if something was wrong with it that way I don't buy another 300 watt sub and get let down again. Crutchfield is great and I will always continue to shop with them as they are unparalleled in the online shopping experience - thanks.

Product Research



Metal Matrix Diaphragm (M.M.D.): Derived from the C.M.M.D. material used in Infinity's flagship Cascade series, M.M.D. features a stiff aluminum core, anodized on both sides for increased strength and rigidity. M.M.D. transducers conduct sound faster than paper, polypropylene, and Kevlar, pushing unwanted resonances beyond the operating range of the transducer. M.M.D. drivers deliver crystal-clear, distortion-free sound from dynamic digital sources, even at high listening levels. The PS210 is equipped with a front-firing, 10" M.M.D. woofer.

Surround: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofer uses a rubber surround.

Amplifier: This subwoofer is powered by a 300-watt (RMS) amplifier, rated at 20Hz - 150Hz with no more than 0.1% THD. The maximum (peak) power output is 500 watts.

Bass Ports: There is one rear-firing bass port that allows deep bass with high acoustic efficiency and low distortion.


Gain Control: The subwoofer has a rotary control on the rear panel for adjusting the level of the bass.

Low-Pass Crossover: The subwoofer features a continuously variable 50Hz-150Hz low-pass crossover that determines the highest frequency at which the subwoofer reproduces sounds. The crossover has a 24dB/octave slope. The crossover is bypassed when the "LFE/Normal" switch is in the "LFE" position.

Phase Switch: The subwoofer's phase switch allows you to control the phase of the subwoofer's output relative to the front speakers. If the bass sounds muddy or unclear, toggling the phase control can sometimes strengthen the bass "attack."

Auto On/Off Circuit: The auto on/off circuit turns the power amp on when a signal is sensed and turns the amplifier off and into standby mode approximately 10 minutes after a signal is no longer received. An LED indicator on the rear panel glows green when the amplifier is on and red when the amp is in standby.


Line-level Inputs: The subwoofer has gold-plated stereo RCA inputs with an "LFE/Normal" switch. If you have a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor with a low-frequency-effects (LFE) output, you should switch the "LFE/Normal" switch to the LFE position. If your receiver/processor does not contain a Dolby Digital or DTS processor but has a subwoofer output, you should switch the "LFE/Normal" switch to the Normal position. In either case, you may use either the Left or Right input. A "Y" adapter is not necessary.
