Polk Audio has been one of Crutchfield's best-selling home speaker brands for decades. And for good reason — they produce high-quality speakers and subwoofers at affordable prices. The HTS 10 is the company's latest offering on the powered subwoofer front. Use it as part of a Polk Audio Signature two-channel stereo or home theater system for excellent bass without breaking the bank.
The Polk Audio HTS 10 powered sub features a sleek, rounded enclosure and a removable grille.
This sleek sub features a hip, updated design with rounded corners and a slot on the bottom that shows off the flared, down-firing port — a bit of a departure from Polk's previous enclosures. Cosmetically, it's my favorite Polk sub design to date.
But the HTS 10 offers more than just good looks. It pairs a 10", front-firing driver with a 100-watt amp for tight, punchy bass in small- or medium-sized rooms. If you have a large room, I recommend considering this sub's big brother, the HTS 12.

Average Customer Review(s):
The Polk HTS 10 is a very capable and powerful sub-woofer. For my room and setup, I didn't need anything larger. The 200W and 10" speaker size do a formidable job of rumbling the walls and couch. I am now able to both hear and feel the effects.
Pros: 10" speaker size Easy setup
Just bought 2 of this Sub because the sale 20% off, after replace the old one my movie and music came alive, beautiful luxury design, the bass is clean and can feel everywhere doesn't matter where to stay in the living room The power port from Polk audio is truly a game changer in music industry. If you want to upgrade your home audio this is the one, it's worth every penny to spend one this sub.
Pros: Clean bass, feel the bass all around listening area. Beautiful wood with luxury design.
Cons: Hard to find Cons on this Sub.
I bought this sub for music purposes, not home theater. I wanted my stereo to have a bit more meat on the low end and this sub is great for that. It has been paired with great success to a pair of Polk RTI-A7 speakers and my old Sony STR-DA80ES a/v receiver. My old CDs all sound brand new again, and I am hearing all sorts of stuff in them that I had never heard before!
Outstanding performance....never muddy/booming sounding...crisp, defined bass. Polk definitely hit it on the nail with this Sub.
Pros: Great sound....small footprint.
Cons: Absolutely none.
This sub is the best subwoofer I have ever owned. My last sub being the PSW10 this is a major step up. You really feel the bass with this subwoofer in comparison to the PSW10 where you hear more bass than you feel. This is great for anything from movies to music. All around a great looking and sounding subwoofer.
Pros: Loud, accurate, good looking.
Outstanding sub for the price and very nice looking too.
this sub is excellent for a small room. lots of deep bass and it can handle anything you throw at it. all in all an excellent sub. we'll see if it lasts like my other polk audio sub did. 17 yrs. will let you know.
Overall nice sub, looks really nice and sounds good BUT it misses on the lower end bass. Listening to a song or watching a movie and it hits that low bass it struggles. For normal listening its great but if your picky and would notice this may find another sub. I don't have another sub to compare so this may be normal for a 10", it does shake my pictures on the wall and can get very loud.
Pros: Looks great, overall good sound, can get loud
Cons: misses on the lower end bass
Great product. Good base for surround sound.
Deep well balanced bass. Works well will my home theater set up along with playing music.
The 10" can handle all you can give it . My room is medium sized and this is perfect.
Pros: Such a huge improvement over the subwoofers from the home theaters in a box. The rumbling during my favorite movies has brought them to life again
Cons: The cabinet was bigger than I judged from the picture (I was to lazy to read the specs) , bought the wife a new end table and we are both happy.

10" Polypropylene Dynamic Balance Woofer: The HTS 10 houses a front-firing 10" polypropylene long-throw woofer with rubber surround for deep, accurate bass. The woofer incorporates Polk's patented Dynamic Balance technology and is Klippel optimized to provide clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.
100W Class D Amplifier: The Polk HTS10 employs a 100 watt (RMS) / 200 watt (Peak) Class D amplifier for dynamic bass performance.
Power Port Technology: The Polk HTS 10 powered subwoofer utilizes floor-firing patented Power Port Technology for deeper bass response and reduced port noise. The Power Port floor-firing design smoothly transitions air flow from the speaker into your listening area for deep, extended bass impact while minimizing turbulence, distortion, and port noise. At the port tuning frequency, Power Port equipped subwoofers have 3dB less port noise than similarly configured subwoofers without Power Port.
Non-Resonant Enclosure: The powered sub's strong, rigid, and acoustically inert curved enclosure reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. Its non-resonant Meddite MDF construction, with extra bracing and thick baffle, ensures a more lifelike sound.
Controls: Built-in controls for variable volume, low pass filter, and phase let you tune in optimum bass levels. All controls are found on the rear-panel of the powered sub.
Line-Level Inputs: The Polk HTS 10 powered subwoofer is outfitted with an unfiltered LFE input and filtered stereo RCA inputs (subwoofer cable not included).
Auto & DC Power On/Off: The powered subwoofer will automatically turn on when an audio signal is received and off when there is no audio signal for about 20 minutes. There is also a 12V trigger input on the back of powered sub which allows it to power on with your receiver or integrated amp that features a 12V trigger output (the 12V trigger provides a faster auto on/off).
Note: There is a switch on the back of the powered sub that indicates which power on/off method you will be using - Auto or DC.
Placement: You may place the powered subwoofer anywhere in your room, but it will perform best when it's on the same side of the room as your system's front speakers. Also, placing the subwoofer near a wall or in a corner will increase its loudness.
Frequency Response: The overall frequency response for the subwoofer is 25-180Hz, and the -3 dB frequency response is 30-120Hz.
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 verify what’s in the box, 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.
Because I have the polk signature s15 and s30 as my front and center speakers and this sub seems to be their match, plus the specs and construction look solid. [ YAER Jan 04, 2018 ]

I researched several locations online for a product that I thought would meet my requirements and price range and narrowed my selection down to eight candidates. I found that Crutchfield carried all eight and had as good a price as any other source. I discussed my options with two different Crutchfield advisors and found them both to be very knowledgeable of the products. I wound up accepting their recommendation. The free shipping also played a part in my selecting Crutchfield as my supplier. [ Roger Mar 20, 2018 ]
